First off, let me say that we chose this place knowing it was on the campy/seedy side. We read the reviews and had an idea what we were in for. That being said, we were regretting the choice within the first hour. We were told we were in an "updated" room, and I can only imagine what it was like... More

While many places are comparable in this area for relaxed casual room and board my midwinter break was a perfect way to get away from the snow up north and visit with some great folks on the Gulf Coast. The rooms are perhaps 1970's vintage but nicely kept and certainly adequate for a comfortable stay. The only challenge I had... More

From the minute we got there to the minute we left, my fiancée and I had a great time. We had a long weekend stay there. We were sad to leave and plan on making this a regular destination. 1. The room was spacious and clean, bed and pillows comfortable. It was on the inside close to the pool, which... More

Flamingos is an interesting resort catering for the gay market. Before it is a motel, it is four bars around a pool. You can have a great night out and the Code bar has a great atmosphere. So go there if you want to have a few drinks, some fun and a late night. If you don't want to drive... More

They have the most accomadating and friendly staff and Terry the bartender took the time to ask for me to share my comments about my visit while i was there. Will and Terry are about the most friendly and fun bartenders that I have met.

The dust ruffle on the bed was dirty.The door knob and lock had been jimmied and bent. The only difference with the second room that we were shown, is that they... More

The hotel is disgusting! My room was run down, the carpeting was filthy and in many places worn down to the bare floor. They threw a dirty cover on the bed and didn't even provide a blanket. Most of the dresser drawers were broken and unusable. The headboard was a door nailed to the wall. On day 2, when I... More

For a gay friendly motel it was OK. The room was very clean. It was much more quiet than the pictures on the website suggested. The bars were not friendly. If you did not come with someone, you were ignored.
