I traveled to Coeur d'Alene for the marathon and to do a little sightseeing. I booked the Flamingo Motel based on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor. I was really anticipating staying at the Flamingo, and I was not disappointed. I stayed in room 10, the Americana room that has a king sized bed and two recliners. The pictures on... More

Was able to bring family this time (makes the third or fourth time staying there). I called Art and Shelly Williams and asked for a quiet room that could hold three adults in two beds. You get to know Art and Shelly by name because they truly are "personal hosts" who are easy to talk with and full of great... More

The Flamingo Motel in CDA is the perfect '50s experience -- and then some! It's the classic one story 1950's style motel with a quirky twist. All the rooms have been redecorated with period themes. We stayed in the Flamingo Beach, with the Jimmy Buffett motif, but we arrived on a Monday and the super-nice proprietress let us look at... More

Every room is different! A 1950's style motel that has been renovated and cared for by the owners. Fun to choose which room we wanted. We went with Flamingo beach decor. Our friends chose Emerald Isle. Owners very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

This was our last stop on a three month adventure and it was very memorable!!! We stayed in the Victorian room and it was lovely. I was so impressed by the owners careful attention to detail from the tiffany lamp to the rich burgundy and gold bed attire and drapes. It was beautiful!!! When I went to the front desk... More

The owners, Art and Shelly, were very nice and full of information regarding the surrounding area including eateries. This was our second stay at this motel and plan on revisiting in June. Before you book your next stay at one of the big chain hotels, I suggest you check out the Flamingo. You will be glad you did. Scott and... More

Yes, there are lots of fancy resorts in CdA, but this little motel is perfect. It is downtown, the rates are reasonable, the people friendly as all get-out, the rooms cute and clean. Free Wi-fi, the regular amenities (except breakfast, but that's ok with two great coffee shops within easy walking distance.) Everything is within easy walking distance. I'll stay... More

This is an immaculate, well-kept facility. We stayed in the Americana room. Everything was so clean I had the impression that we were the first to use it. The hotel owner was friendly and obviously proud of her motel. Price was reasonable. We would stay here again.

Every time we are in CDA, we try to stay at the Flamingo. It is a charming little motel that has been very carefully decorated. It is charming! The motel is within walking distance from town. It is one of the cleanest hotels/motels we have stayed in. The management is friendly and accomodating!

Cool little hotel... Themed rooms so the are a little different. Vibrating beds too! Everything was clean & good. The only thing that was super strange was one of the two room suites had the strangest floor plan... You enter the second room through the bathroom... So if you go & lick the door in the bathroom, you can lock... More

We fixed the problem so it won't happen to anyone else. Sorry, the little bumper on the wall was set right where the lock button was, now it is offset to prevent this. More
