Like others have said, it's nice to eschew the highway franchises and support a mom & pop establishment that gets you off the thruway and into the town----where you might just happen to support a mom & pop restaurant. The Flamingo was clean and comfortable, and the price was right!

We wee so happy to find this funky, modernized' clean and comfortable place to stay on our cruise down Rt 66! It has been recently renovated, is nicely appointed and well maintained. Would come back without reservation and recommend as a resting spot for fellow travelers. Priced very fairly!

We stayed at the Flamingo on a motorcycle trip on old Route 66. We like to buy local when we can and this motel is locally owned by folks pursuing the American dream. We found it clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced and will probably stay there again when we do 66 westbound. Sometimes you take a chance with... More

Patel will take good care of you. He offered me a cold water upon check-in. Rooms are quite spacious and clean. Very nice TV. My favorite was the nice swing- perfect place to relax on a warm evening. Fast wifi and an outlet by the bed but you'll need to unplug the clock.

This is a good value motel if you're passing through Elk City and need a place to stay for the night. The staff was very friendly, giving us free bottled water on arrival and making sure everything was good with the room. The room is just a standard roadside motel set up, but very clean and with comfortable bed and... More

For this price, you cannot decently ask for more : spacious renovated room, big flat TV, free water (upon arrival after 200 miles by bike), free wifi (code is given at checkin). Definitely a good stop on Route 66. No breakfast.

Our first stay at the Flamingo Inn was August 9, 2015 as we returned home from completing our relocation from central MO to Albuquerque, NM. Since visiting and relocating to New Mexico beginning in 2009, we’re budget-oriented travelers always searching for those rare, comfortable, updated and affordable accommodations outside of the overpriced hotel chains frequented along the OK interstate.
