This is a quaint, fun motel within walking distance to the lake and restaurants. We stayed in the "Americana" room (think 4th of July, apple pie and mom) where it had a king size bed, 2 recliners and a stand with coffee makings, etc. They offer free DVD movie rentals if you are so inclined. The room was spotless. Highly... More

We stayed here in July 2014 and it was quaint and lovely. We turned down the Coeur d’Alene Spa/Resort to come here and spend our money wisely and so glad we did. This is so clean and tidy and close to everything. We ate at The Fork just a few blocks away and it was fantastic. Peterson’s grocery just down... More

This is a VERY well run motel. The owner remodeled all the rooms himself - each with a different theme. I stayed in the " cowboy" room which was fun. Easy walking to many restaurants and the lake. Highly recommend this place!

I have been going to the Car D'Alene Car show and Collector Car Auction for approximately 20 years. For the first few years I stayed at other motels / hotels. About 15 years ago I tried the Flamingo. I have stayed there every year since. It's right on the main drag ( Sherman Ave ) and easy to get to... More

This is the second time I stayed there and equally enjoyed it. This time, I was in a different room and it too was decorated very nicely and also very cozy. Art Williams, the co owner with his wife, Shelly, is a lot of fun to talk with - and it is easy to listen to his adventurous life. You... More

Amazing Location & Price! We absolutely love finding hidden Gems & this is definitely one. We stayed in the Victorian room which was spacious and very clean. We have also booked to go back this August and are staying in the Golfers Room - We can't Wait! Walking distance to the water, pubs and entertainment. We highly recommend Caponnes Pub... More

Since we like to start dinner with a cocktail, we like to walk to dinner so drinking and driving are never a problem. This hotel is located at the end of the quaint main street. The host gave us dinner recommendations and never steered us wrong and nothing was more than a 15 min walk. The room (ours was decorated... More

We have stayed numerous times in Coeur d'Alene, this was the first time at the Flamingo. It's a charming, small, quirky little motel on the edge of the Downtown CdA. The rooms are each decorated with a theme. Our small suite had a cabin/fishing decor. The rooms are clean, the owners and staff are friendly. It's a place we will... More

We found the Flamingo the first trip because a family from Virginia was the first review when we clicked on Trip Advisor. The Flamingo is quirky and delightful in the different themes of the rooms.We have stayed in the English garden and the Irish one. Both visits were a welcome rest after a long drive. The motel is located on... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Like a B&B without the breakfast, all rooms have been remodeled with uniquely different themes. Eight one bed, three two beds & two are 2-bedroom suites (one with a full kitchen). Rooms are all street level with parking in front of each room. Situated within the seven blocks of "old downtown" Coeur d'Alene beside the Lake, all beaches, restaurants & art galleries are within walking and the street fairs, parades, marathons and classic car shows start right out front. ... more   less
