My husband and I stayed here when we came to Cardston to see the Remmington Carriage Museum. The place is very old and could really use some upgrades. The mattresses need to be changed, not comfortable at all. Bathrooms very small, tub taps leaked and there was hair in the tub. The only good thing was the pillows. No, we... More

We ended up staying here, despite our misgivings. The room was large enough, but DIRTY! Especially the floor! My son complained that it smelled awful - we actually went out and bought a can of Lysol air freshener. The motel is old, and noisy. Although we were at the end of the building, we could hear the guy 2 doors... More

The room was full of pet hair, carpet was filthy, mold in the bathroom. Drove to Fort Macleod to find a room to stay in. There are not a lot of options in Cardston so be sure to make reservations ahead of time or you will have to drive another 40 to 60 km. Lethbridge, Fort Macleod, or Waterton

This is by far the worst motel we’ve stayed in during our 5 weeks tour of America so far, and a rip-off for the price. The room absolutely reeked, of what I’m not quite sure, but it didn’t go away even with the door open, and it bothered me all night long. On walking in I realised that the carpet... More

Very nice people, relatively clean, comfy beds, wifi and cheap rates. But you do get what you pay for. Older place, a bit run down, shower did not work. It was warm and a roof over our heads. Nothing special. There was a microwave and little fridge. No blow dryer though.

We fled to tiny Cardston after rain disrupted our camping trip in Glacier National Park. There are three accommodation options on the main street. The Flamingo offers a senior rate of $69 for a 1Q room ($30 less than the place down the road), which we figured was good value as it was clean and comfortable, with a fridge, microwave,... More

We stayed here on our trip to Waterton Lakes National Park. The desk staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The room was clean and comfortable, but a little worn and dated. Overall, a great value, but don't expect five stars for sure.

We were driving thorugh making our way to waterton AB. We stopped in leithbridge for gas and to check tripadvisor for rooms in the next closes town, and found the Flamingo. (thank you to SaggyBs).
