“Had a great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Flamingo Inn. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and just a few steps from the beach. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We plan on visiting again next year.

If you like small, quiet, laid-back hotels, this is the one. Great staff, great service and clean rooms. Good location within walking distance to restaurants and shops, but still away from the hussel and crowds. Beautiful pool and gardens with palm trees that give the tropical feel. Wide clean sandy beach just steps away from your door. The low rates are definitely a plus - but don't be fooled, this is a very nice place. This is my new spot in Daytona Beach.

Room Tip: All rooms have good views, ocean or a nice tropical garden.

What a nice review – thank you. I am so glad this guest like his choice of hotel on the beach in Datyona Beach - and since you are a real person staying with us, and not a number, we know that you enjoyed and utilize the beach everyday to the utmost!

It was nice to read that you enjoyed the good location and the tropical landscaping. If accommodations in Key West can have it - why not us! We like to keep our rates low to make the rooms affordable, and our economy rooms are just as clean as the more expensive upscale oceanviews, oceanfronts and king beds.

Thank you for staying with us, and we look forward to seeing you in the future again.

My husband and his family stayed at the Flamingo before I ever came into the picture and when we got married 17 years ago we started our on family vacation tradition by staying at the Flamingo. It doesn't seem like Summer is here if we can't make it to the Flamingo to not only experience the wonderful beach atmosphere but to meet back up with Merle and her family, to see all the changes that have taken place in a year....your granddaughter reminds me so much of my little one who is now 16...she is a dolphin in the pool. Over and over again our stay has been the best, great rooms (suite B, 2 rooms), any problems are taken care of swiftly by Merle. We love the great ocean view from the pool. My husband favorite spot is the corner bar stool looking out at the ocean. You can not find a better place to stay...great price....I'm so ready to come back!!! Gary & Lisa Busbee and Girls

Room Tip: Nice Quiet place to stay, but still close to main attrations

I would like to thank this guest for taking the time to share such wonderful comments. It certainly warms our hearts to read of how much this family enjoyed their stay over the years at the Flamingo Inn. We have come to know each and everyone personally and look forward to their visits as much as they look forward to spend time on the beach and relax.

The comment made in this review of “saying it is nice and quiet, although it is still close to the main attractions" is exactly how we want our guests to feel - in the midst of things and at the same time, tropical, secluded and on the beach.

We hope that we are helpful to every guest who stays here, and do care about them and their comfort. Again, I would like to thank this guest for taking the time to send in this review and we look forward to seeing the entire family again in the future.

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!
