“What a great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

We enjoyed our stay in July at the Flamingo Inn. The motel staff were great and we also had superb service. The room and the pool was very nice and espically clean and very well maintained. We will definately be back next year and for years to come. I would recommend the Flamingo Inn to my family and friends. Thanks to Merle, her Daughter and not to forget her grandaughter for the great stay that we had over the 4th of July week. We look forward to staying longer next time.

Room Tip: Book ahead

We decided at the last minute to go to coast and watch the last space shuttle launch. Checked all the websites and prices were crazy, the few that were in our budget had horrible reviews on this site. Finally ran across Flamingo on a local Daytona website. Price was nice for a motel right on the beach. The decor is outdated, however the rooms are very clean. We booked an "Oceanview Eff" the "oceanview" was a bit of an stretch, we were a little to far back on the buidling, you could see the ocean, but a defunk hotel blocked most of the view. Save the extra $10.00 per night and book the garden view, or request a room closer to the beach end of the inn. Beds were comfortable, linens old, but soft like grandma's house. The best part is the pool, love, love, loved the pool area. Reminded me of Hawaii. The beach access was right there so the view was lovely. We will be back as soon as we can.

Thank you for for staying with us for the shuttle launch we appreciate your comments and just to let you know we are in the process of putting new linens on all the budget rooms also. We try to have a tropical feel around the pool area, also because it does supply a certain amount of shade when needed. We look forward to seeing you again!

Although this motel is small and dated it is VERY CLEAN!!!! Very nice place to stay. Quiet and right on the beach. Families with children and couples relaxing. Can't beat the price. If you are looking to party and be loud in your room don't stay here. Staff is outstanding. Very helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - we appreciate your comments. Although we are a small inn we try to keep it as clean as possible and as reasonable as we possibly can in these hard economic times. We will never be the Hilton and therefore we try to offer a bargain right on the beach!

Great family hotel, clean, and friendly staff. Merle, the owner is friendly and approachable for any needs you may encounter. Love the easy access to the pool and ocean.

Room Tip: our favorite room was 209, great view of the pool and ocean

Wonderful small place, safe for the little one's. Right on the beach. Clean comfortable rooms. Such a pleasure to stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closest to the beach, and higher up on the 3rd floor for an ocean veiw

I would like to thank this guest for taking the time to submit this review. It is nice to hear that you appreciate our secluded and safe environment for small children.
The oceanfront and oceanview rooms have a nice view of the ocean over the palm trees and the tropical foliage - but keep in mind, there is no elevator! Taking into account that the first and second floor rooms have beautiful tropical foliage in front of the windows - and is just 15 steps from the pool and 20 steps from the beach!

This place looks absolutely nothing like what it does in the pictures. The furniture was old and stained and the baloncy was disgusting. We were supposed to have an ocean view, which we did not get at all and instead got to see a big palm tree out of the window. The lady at the desk tried to show me another room and said it was "better", but it was just as bad except one of the beds wasn't lopsided. Then she tried to show me that you could see the ocean, which you could only see if you stood in the corner of one of the windows. I went down to the office to see if we could get our money back and because it was prepaid we could not do that. This place is horrible and I would never recommend going here. Word of advice, check your room before you decide to stay and pay money for it.

This is your second review the first was "Terrible Experience.." When your credit card declined and you begged us to hold the room for you it was the first red flag that you could not afford the oceanfront accommodations that you "were supposed to get." You cannot expect Sandals accommodations for the price of a youth hostel. Our property is clean and extremely reasonably priced for being right on the ocean.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms were very clean and the service was great. The pool was beautiful and very clean. There are lounge chairs for you to use at the pool. We loved being right on the beach and the easy accessibility. We had our own little courtyard into the garden. Very affordable and family friendly. We will be back!
