Hanging out at the Flamingo is always a great time! The bartenders are really friendly and just fun to be around, especially Terry. It's got a really inclusive welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Rooms on the outside of courtyard are the quietest, but if you don't expect to party don't come here stay on the beach. There staff was very accommodating for the most part and always friendly though my first sunday I stayed there I talked to an older gentleman in a manager shirt and baseball cap he was far more concerned...

Great bars and facilities. We have great confidence that new manager Lyle can turn the Flamingo into a fabulous destination. Close to Fort Desoto beaches and the Alibi. Also great that it is pet-friendly.

We had a great time at Code Bar talking with one of their newer bartenders, Buzzy. He had us laughing and was always quick to refill our drinks. We were having so much fun that we decided to stay instead of heading over to Georgie's like we'd planned! He's a lot of fun and it's great to see them get... More

Hung out here the other night. Didn't stay in a room, so I can only speak about the bars. The poolside Cabana Bar looked fun, but unfortunately it was a bit too chilly to be outside that night. There was a diverse crowd and good music in the Code Bar, which is where we mostly stayed. The bartenders ('Buzzy' and... More

I stay at the Flamingo when ever I visit the Tampa/St. Pete area. The staff is always friendly and super accommodating. The rooms have always been clean and tidy, but it is a bit dated. It is a fun place to stay for a weekend.

We recently stayed at the Flamingo and had a great time! We were not expecting much from the place because of the low price, so we were a bit apprehensive at first. We had a king poolside renovated room, not much was really renovated though. The rooms really leave nothing to desire, however they seemed clean (except the carpets). We... More

I needed a weekend break, and decided to check out the Flamingo. It is rated as a top LGBT freindly establishment. How it gets the high ratings, is beyond my comprehension. The rooms are out dated, poorly kept, and have a "should I touch this with my bare hands" feeling. No Fridge, Micro, hangers, old CRT TV sets with poor... More

I had relatives in town (I live in St. Pete), so I gave them my apartment and booked myself for two weekday nights at the Flamingo. I had been to the Flamingo's bars a few times, which are OK enough, but never stayed in their rooms. So, why not book a few nights? How bad could it be? I should... More
