We were just stopping there on the way to the USA because we wanted to take it slow and not make the whole drive. The outside apperance was okay but as soon as you get in the room is really disgusting. Stained mattress bugs carpet was absolutely filthy my iPad was the same size as the tv. The beds felt... More

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). The motel is a great place to rest your head for 1 night. The hotel is Old and small but for $69/single or $79/double/ night... More

My wife and I decided to go against the popular vote and asked to see a room before we booked it. As someone already posted, this is not a Fairmont, but a family owned Motel, so we went into it with that in mind. The room is clean, it is obvious that it is not a new hotel, there are... More

We made the mistake of staying at the flamingo hotel on a long road trip coming back from the US. "Lets just get over the border tonight, so there is less of a drive tomorrow!" The website we found on short notice advertised everything we look for in a hotel, clean, wifi, and a pool. We get there, and are... More

We made a last minute trip to the states and unfortunately decided to stop in Cardston to get a hotel for the night. The only thing available was the Flamingo. The room was less than comfortable. The bed was hard as a rock and there was yellow stains on the linens and mattress. The pillows had someone elses hair on... More

I recently traveled to Cardston to see the Theatre Productions in town with a few friends. I was astounded at the cheap price, but I should have seen that as a forwarning of the terrors that awaited me at the motel. The initial smell upon entering our room was one of must. I realized that I wasn't in a city... More

We went as a group of runners doing the Waterton to Glacier Relay. This hotel was perfect...queen beds in separate rooms, coffee and refrigerators in the room. We loved it. The price was just right!

I made reservations at the Flamingo Inn for our team the night before the Waterton-Glacier Relay. Race organizers and some of these reviews scared three of our members off to another motel, but the rest stayed true and I'm glad we did. It is a small town motel, perfectly clean, not fancy in the least, no spa shower head or... More

We have stayed here several times over the past few years due to the lack of available rooms downtown at the only decent place to stay in Cardston. The rooms are disgusting. They were filthy, smelled terrible, poor quality beds, carpets ripped and torn, dead flies, mould around the tub and shower. There will never be a next time. Gladly... More
