Elk City is just west of Oklahoma City on Interstate 40. The Flamingo Inn is a couple of miles off the beaten path (Exit 38A) on Historic Route 66 but it is truly a diamond in the rough motel. Hugh flat screen TV's, comfy beds, clean refrigerators and microwaves as well as a hair dryer and coffee maker for a... More

This is a great place to stop. The price was right, the owners were very gracious and the room was clean. The only reason it go VG is because as with many hotels these days the wifi was slow if you need to work as I do. I'm finding I always have to use my hotspot. Maybe if enough folks... More

If you ever find yourself in Elk City, I would highly recommend staying at the Flamingo Motel. It was only $65 a night (including taxes) for a very large room with a king size bed and it had a flat screen TV (with cable). It looks a bit run down from the outside but the rooms are really clean and... More

Room is fairly modern (as motels go on route 66) and very clean, not specifically route 66 themed though if that's what you're looking for. Price was reasonable ($55 for a queen bedroom or $65 for king size bedroom). Just next door is a good Mexican food restaurant. Would happily recommend a stay here for couples.

We are suckers for anything "flamingo", and although the only one we saw was on the sign, this was still a great stop on our trip. The owners are friendly and polite, and the care they take of this older motel is obvious. The free bottle of water at check-in was very appreciated. The courtyard has a nice swing/garden area,...

My husband and I were traveling through OK on our way to NM and we wanted to stay in an independent motel rather than a chain. The Flamingo Inn is just what we were hoping to find on historic Route 66! The price is very reasonable for the level of quality. The the size of the room (1 king bed)... More

My room was very clean and comfortable. Overall good experience. Very affordable price. I lassie old motel that has been well cared for. It was fun to stay at just thinking about the history of Route 66 and all the folks that have traveled through the area before me. I will stay there again when traveling through Elk City.

This is a very good quality at a low rate. Its an old motel that has received TLC. The operators are also very nice, intelligent people. The rates are lower than other name brands, some of which are not as good................what more is their to say?

It was the reviews that brought me to the Flamingo rather than the other places in town. But if I'm back in town, this is where I'm staying! For $55/night, I can't say enough. They've done a lot of work on the rooms themselves. Bed is comfortable. You can tell the furniture is new. Includes a recliner, a nice office... More
