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 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
