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

I give it 5 stars because of its value and quality--not because it ranks with exclusive properties. This is the second time we've stayed here--this time with friends who shared our appreciation. The rooms are relatively small, but they have everything you need--and of course, they all have different decorating themes. Standouts to us are that there are 2 comfortable... More

August of 2014 we rented the entire motel for a family reunion. This is key to this review, there were no other guests at the hotel for this week. As a way for the all of the family members to know where each family was in the motel the kids wrote the name of the family in chalk in the... More

We are sorry for your experience. Despite our policy of not allowing a group to book the entire property for multiple nights, an exception was made because of a personal relationship with the person who booked all 13 rooms for 7 consecutive nights. Management was overwhelmed when not only the rooms, but the entire parking lot in front of their... More

My wife and I were able to work out a short getaway. We looked at the recent reviews of the Flamingo motel, and decided that the location was perfect. We arrived and were quickly greeted and checked in. Free wifi and movies were offered, but since we were just there for one night, we just wanted to go walk around.... More

What a wonderful surprise! We recently stayed 2 nights in room #8 which is named Cabin Fever. Each of they're 13 rooms has a different name and theme inside. Rooms are very clean, the owners are very nice and the location is perfect!

Old style motel. The rooms are modern but stylish, each in their own style. The motel is located in the city centre, with a craft beer pub just about 100 meters down the road. The only complaint I had was that my irish room had a photo of a scottish castle :-)

We changed the picture above the bed to one of the "Boat at Ross Castle in Co. Kerry, Ireland". You can see it at AllPosters.com, item 12258062. More
