“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Hadn't booked and arrived fairly late. Friendly staff, free coffee and parking right outside (or across the road). Our room was big, clean and had a fridge which was super handy. If you're used to big hotels then this probably isn't for you but the location was perfect right on the beach and had 2 pools. We were able to walk about 10 mins to a retail park with loads of restaurants and shops and a liquor store right opposite. What more do you want!

My boyfriend and I stayed over 11/7-11/10 we had a great view, open door and your at the beach. Can't beat the price or the fact you get a full kitchen. Super pleased and happy. Room was clean and property was maintained.

My husband and I have stayed at the Flamingo on 5 or more occasions and will go back again. The facility is old, but clean. It is located near Pier Park and Gulf World. The staff is friendly and helpful. After the kids get out of the pool things quiet down. A moon lit walk on the beach is just a few steps away from your room. If you want all the amenities, spa, gym, etc. this is not the place for you. If you want a place to crash after a day in the sun or the tourist attractions you can't beat the value.

Room Tip: Suites are great if you are staying more than 2 nights or have more than 2 people. We have stayed ri...

My husband and I just stayed here from 11/1/13 through 11/3/13 for our anniversary & we loved it. Our room was extremely clean, bed was comfortable, and view from balcony was amazing. The staff is so friendly here. All the guests we came in contact with were friendly also. The pool was cleaned daily, & we enjoyed relaxing in it. This hotel is a little older, but it is so clean & comfy, why would you want to spend a fortune somewhere else? This property is very well kept. There is also a Walmart very close by if you happen to need anything, as well as many good restaurants. Pier Park is a half mile away, where you can shop, eat, or stroll on the pier. Our room had a full size refridgerater, microwave, stove, coffee pot, cabinets stocked with dishes-pots-pans-utensils, 2 tv's, comfortable bed, extremely clean tub & shower, couch, small dining table, decent size balcony. Everything you need is right here. We stayed in room 354 & we were very pleased. Hope to return soon.

Ok place to stay if everywhere else is full. Room had some maintenance issues, but were addressed. Older building that needs some updating. Elevator slow and beat up looking. Staff friendly. Pool and hot tub was always full. Short walking distance to the beach. Close to Pier Park and other attractions.

We came all the way from Md so we knew nothing about PCB. Great location beautiful beach and very friendly people. We stayed in the tower on the first floor. We were near the elevator so it was a little noisy in the early morning but overall quiet and nice. The room was large, very clean, and very comfortable. Check in and out was quick and easy and the staff gave us some very good dinner suggestions. Easy walk to Pier Park and only a short drive to a great breakfast place(Jeanne's). WiFi not very good but the pool and beach were great. We had to park across the road but traffic wasn't bad so crossing was easy. I could see though that during busy times crossing might be difficult. There was an Oyster bar right across the street. The baked oysters were fantastic and they had outdoor karaoke every night. We spent hours watching . It was a great family affair. I feel we lucked out picking the Flamingo for our first visit to PCB

if you have a family & end up on panama city beach during spring break, this is the place to go. they seem to be more family oriented and wont rent to a bunch of teenagers. very welcome sight. the beachfront or courtyard rooms are the way to go.

Room Tip: the tower was my least favorite
