I started a review of our recent stay in the Flamingo but found I was on page two of the review with no margins and I was only on my second day. I figured I would just list the concerns and problems and supply pictures to support. We only stayed because it was Pride weekend, my partner’s birthday, he just...

Real nice place to stay that won't bust you. Had my large family stay here. Restaurants near by and plenty of activity. Ocean is nice and warm. Pleasant staff. Close to other places for a nice walk on the beach.

Room nicer than expected, neat vibe, a renovation of what was the first Holiday INN in Florida. Easy to get to and from expressway to get to the downtown St. Pete. With all the art things to do. Great pool, with DJ on Sunday afternoons.

First, the Flamingo is not, nor advertised as a 4 star resort. With that in mind, I give it 4 out of 5 stars because it lived up to what it says it is; an inexpensive and friendly place to let loose and have fun. Great pool, good bar food, good strong drinks, looooooong happy hours, amazingly friendly and cool...

“Punched by a pattren Sunday August 21, 2016 at the Flamingo Hoel”

1 of 5 stars Pending review

Yesterday, I came to the Flamingo Hotel for tea dance like I do most Sundays. I happened to be using the waterslide the hotel had set up. After getting out of the pool to go down the slid again, there was a guy with his "leather toy boy" in toe. Deck was wet and I lost my footing a bit and brushed against the "boy toy". Apologized and commented on his looks. Well his "master" didn't take lightly to it and cold cocked me in the chest.

I immediately went into the Code Bar and asked for security. When no one came I walked outside and saw the "young lady" security guard talking to the guy who hit me. At this point I became outraged and went to the front desk and asked them to call the police. While waiting for the police to come the General Manager, Randy, was called. While waiting for the police I was calling my bank because my debit card was stolen. Randy was trying to interrupt me while I was on the phone with the bank. At this point I was beyond upset. He kept telling me to sit down. I told him I was calling my bank and waiting for the police. He then told me to leave the property.

I was the one struck by his other pattern and I was told to leave. I walked out to the side walk and waited for the police. Four scout cars arrived. One officier took my information and the other ones went and talked with Randy the so called inept manager. I was given a trespassing paper stating I was not allowed back on the property. BE AWAIRE THAT IF YOU GET PUNCHED IN THE CHEST BY A SO CALLED "MASTER" IT'S OK.

I tried calling the hotel back several times to get the owner's name. The desk clerk was upright RUDE!! He wouldn't give me the information.

I asked if it was always allowed to have their guest's "gay bashed". His response was, "how can you be gay bashed at a gay hotel". I wonder how far this guy got through school to have that type of answer.

I already called Channel 10 news and told them what happened. They requested I email them what happened and they would contact me right away.

I have already contacted my attorney and plan to take full legal action against the flamingo resort and the person that hit me.
