Love this little motel. We have stayed here a few times over the years. I like the cozy feel and the fact that it's not a chain hotel with a lot of rooms and noisy guests. I would take the small amount of traffic on the street over multiple floors of noisy guests any day.

Recently updated, Excellent cleanliness. Not the greatest water pressure despite good showerhead. No wifi issues at all. Backs on lightly used rail line with pleasant yard space. I snacked on cherries from the trees. apples are one the way. Stayed in #4

When I travel through Castlegar, I always stay at the Flamingo. Rooms are clean, good cable tv, good Wi-fi, the owners are great people, polite, and always helpful. If you have a motorcycle, you have no concerns staying at this motel. They make sure your bike is in a well lit area.

Had planned to camp at Christina Lake for the night but was raining, so carried on to Castlegar after consulting TripAdvisor for a clean, pet friendly motel, and calling to reserve a room. Very welcoming owner that saw to our all our needs late in the evening. Basic accommodation in this old-school 6-room drive up motel, but clean bright and... More

The owner was welcoming upon checkin. The room was very clean and well kept. Amenities of a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The bed was comfortable. There is a nice lawn area beside the motel with benches. They also provide a barbeque and patio table if you want to eat outside. The location isn´t the best. You have to drive... More

We recently returned to the Flamingo while our home was undergoing renovations. During the night, the sofa bed gave up the ghost (!) resulting in a night on the floor for my partner. When told of this, Geoff and Naomi went out of their way to make it right. They offered another room at no charge for the second night,... More

We recently stopped at the Flamingo Motel during a quick trip to Alberta.The room was very clean and comfortable. The reception we received was very efficient; even shown the room by the owner. We will certainly return in the future

OK. HOW this place is #1 is a mystery to me. Best bet Super 8 or there's a lovely place on the way to Grand Forks. It's dingy and dark so couldn't tell if it's clean or not. Blew it as the Super 8 was BOOKED. Don't do it and the noise from traffic is terrible.

One of the better motels I've stayed at. Very clean rooms and an excellent value for the price. The one gripe I had is that the Wi-Fi strength was very weak and it kept cutting out. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

The room was very clean, bathroom was new and can't beat the price. The owners were absolutely amazing, from bringing extra chairs and utensils for a family barbecue to holding our son while we completed a task that took 2 people. No wonder the motel is usually full, keep up the good work. We will be back, thanks again.
