The Tower rooms are very nice for the price and the view is spectacular. The hotel has a hot tub, two nice sized pools, one heated, and plenty of seating overlooking the ocean. The staff was superb, very friendly and accomodating, and checking in and out was a breeze. There is plenty of parking, which is also nice. In fact, I chose Flamingo at the last minute because Sugar Sands overbooked me without telling me until I arrived, but they recommended Flamingo as an alternative. I'm most happy with how things worked out, as Flaminto is centrally located and in walking distance to Pier Park, which has a wide choice of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. The Tower rooms are equipped with a kitchenette, stove, microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. You'll want to pack essentials like coffee filters, paper towels, coffee, shampoo, etc., if you are staying for a period of time. Overall, this motel offers a great deal for the vactioner who simply wants to enjoy the beach, explore the area by foot, and enjoy R&R time. I will definetly be back.
