This is our first time staying here and we are impressed. The rooms were extremely clean and all the staff is super friendly. This will definitely be somewhere we stay again. We couldn’t ask for a better view and easy beach access.
We stayed in the newer part The Tower. We had 2 double beds and sofa bed with kitchenette and balcony one bathroom. It was clean and nice we were on 2nd floor. They had 2 pools it was like ice water but nice. It did NOT have any umbrellas at either pool. Did have picnic table. There was no safe I didn’t like that. No hair dryer and they don’t have a toaster. Someone left one in our room. All in all nice stay and convenient to Pier Park. Parking across the street but free a few places in front of building.
After being disappointed with our last couple of hotels, we decided to give the Flamingo a try. We don't mind an older place as long as it is decent & clean, which is what the Flamingo promoted. Since it was off season I called a week ahead & booked a tower room for $89.00 per night. The room & the place overall exceeded our expectations. The room was very spacious with 2 queen beds, a kitchen & full bath, & a living room area with the oceanfront views & balcony. Besides the beautiful ocean views, there are 2 pools, jacuzzi, two beautiful huge sundecks, & very nice tropical landscaping. There are also other room choices on property, but we loved the tower room for the great views from our balcony. Everyone who worked in the office & on property were very nice & friendly. The location is awesome, across the street from Gulf World, a short walk to Pier Park, & walking distance to many great restaurants. We left our car parked for our entire stay.…
We have been staying at this hotel for over 20yrs and never had a bad stay until this time.My daughter and soninlaws room was broke into and her purse was stolen along with money and creditcards.When we asked the hotel to review the footage on their cameras we told the cameras dont look down the halls,but when the police came all of the sudden their cameras would look down the hall.Then 2 days later when we inquired as to what they found we were lied to again and told the police had the footage when they didnt because the officer on the case called my daughter later that afternoon and said they hadnt recieved it.I dont know what is going on,but the one thing i do know is we wont be back.
Stayed at the Flamingo for the first time. Older family run motel which I like. We stayed in one of the really small rooms, just one bed, mini fridge and microwave. Shower only. This was fine for 2 of us. Room very clean, bed and pillows comfy. Plenty of things within walking distance too. Also quiet even though it was crowded for October. Our room had a gulf view. Very affordable.
