“View, location, pools, service and price are great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We stayed at the Flamingo during the last week of March and really loved it! Oceanfront room with a great view, heated pool and whirlpool, clean and close to Pier Park, Sharky's, Shuckums, Wal Mart, Target and a variety of other shops within walking distance. Although it was cool the week we were there, the sand and amount of beach are excellent, there were always chaise loungers available (although we noted other guests who got up early to put their towels on chairs at 6:30 a.m. and didn't actually use the chairs until 2:00 pm. - very tacky and inconsiderate!). Housekeeping fulfilled all of our requests (including asking for closet hangars - there were none when we arrived and they brought 20 new ones), the owners and staff were always friendly and courteous, and we felt safe in this stretch of Panama City Beach. The price was great, especially for ocean front during the tail end of Spring Break. We liked the room's full size refrigerator-freezer, stove, microwave, table for two and balcony/walkway overlooking the Gulf. Outside on the upper patio there are a couple of charcoal grills for grilling out & a sheltered picnic table if you so desire. For me personally, the bed was difficult to sleep on and after a few days, I experienced back soreness after a few hours of sleep. You may or may not experience this but though it was worth mentioning. Overall, the rooms do have some wear & tear, but nothing that over counter-balanced the positives. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back at some point.

Room Tip: We stayed on the end of the motel (lower) part, 2nd floor. There are 4 rooms, 2 on each wing, that a...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Flamingo Motel! The staff were incredibly friendly, our rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable. It was great to wake up in the morning and see the beach right outside my window! And loved being close to Pier Park Mall! Wonderful value for everything you get!

The Flamingo Motel was a great place to stay. They had great staff that took great care of the rooms and they were available to help most of the time. Another perk was that it was right on the beach and at a great price! Each room had one area for the beds and a separate room with a couch and dining table. As well as a kitchen and bathroom. The beds were also probably the most comfy beds i have ever slept on in a Motel/Hotel. The motel had a hot tub and two pools, one on the lower deck and the other on the upper deck. The one on the lower was heated which was great for how cold it was in Florida. I was down in Florida for Soul Surf which was connected to my christian fellowship group Intervarstiy. They were very accommodating and allowed us to use their pools and hold pool parties which was a blast! I had a great time and i would stay there again! I would definitely recommend it!

Was robbed in the first hour after checking in. After driving for over 10 hours we checked in changed clothes and went to sit in hot tub while sitting in hot tub looking up at room thinking how lucky we was to find a hotel during spring break, someone was stealing all the cash in our room.The funny thing is our room was not broken into someone had a key and put everything back so you wouldnt know it until later which happened at the local wal mart.They got almost $500 from us. The hotel gave our money back for the 2 nights we was gonna stay but our 2 day stay was ruined not knowing how we were gonna get home.The local police took our statement didnt even go look at room or interview anyone on our floor basically shrugged and left.So just be careful dont leave anything in rooms you dont want stolen.

My wife and I were part of a group that has now stayed in the Flamingo 2 years in a row and we love this hotel! We bragged about the facilities to the ppl coming with us and the Flamingo lived up to a big billing once again. The staff are excellent, friendly, and very accomodating. 2 pools (one heated) and a hot tub were kept in great shape and the entire pool area was a great environment for meeting new ppl and relaxing. The hotel has beautiful views of the Gulf and beach and is a short walk away from some of the huge hotels so the beach right outside the Flamingo is calm and relaxing. Our rooms were fully furnished with a kitchen, dishes, and even a lounge room with a table. If you want to stay in PCB you shouldn't look past the Flamingo!

Room Tip: The Flamingo has two parts and every room in the 7 story section has great views of the beach out yo...

Staff was helpful and friendly. There is a great view of the gulf/beach from the room. Facilities/rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Hot tub and pool were great! This was my 2nd stay and it was excellent. It is also a close walk to Pier Park. You won't regret staying here!

Gave our group an amazing deal on really high-quality rooms and service. Two pools (one heated) and a hot tub. Lots of pool deck space to just lie out. Loved having a kitchen and loved the balcony view. The staff is top-notch and super friendly. Awesome choice!
