“Good location and price but outdated.”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Great location... Right on the beach and a close walk to Pier Park (didn't notice until our last day), Affordable rates. But it was spring break and the strip was busy and loud. Need better parking instead of having to cross the street. The wifi came and went and when it was working, the signal was weak. We didn't like hat the balcony wasn't private but next time we will request the tower so we can get a private balcony. Some towels were dingy and some had hairs on them. The bed wasn't very comfortable. Also the building was outdated and when we checked in, the male employee seemed to be in a bad mood. Wasn't very welcoming. But we stayed because it was cheap.

I was vacationing with my wife and two children for their spring break. The price was right. However if you HAVE to work for a little bit while you're on vacation, this isn't the place for you. I called daily about the internet, they'd just reply "we'll reboot the router." It worked once I think. I gave up trying to do a little catch up, so I'm going to be swamped this week at work.

Second complaint was the loudness of the strip. You're right on the strip, so you constantly hear bass, screaming, beeping all night long. One night we had a drunk guy show knock on our door sometime after midnight. Then he knocked on the neighbors door. Then the police were on their P.A. system yelling to him. Restful night.

Positives are many. The price is great. You're right on the beach and all rooms have a view. The pool is great. The staff were very friendly as well.

PROS: Price, view, beach, heated pool.

CONS: No internet connection, LOUD, parking

My husband and I went to the beach for the first time ever last year and stayed here. We loved it. I wanted to stay right on the beach since it was out first time and every other place was crazy high and the Flamingo is so affordable. All we had to do was open our window or door and there was the beach. We have an upcoming vacation and we are staying here again! Only draw back was we couldnt connect to the wifi in our room; but in the long run i was glad we couldnt because it helped us to disconnect. You have to expect that with strong concrete walls though. :)

Room Tip: You have the choice when choosing your room if you want the gulf view or garden view. the gulf view...

1st off the staff was just the sweetest ever. From check in to check out!! That counts for a lot in my book!! The hotel was all we needed and then some. Beautiful ocean view! Lil kitchen, stocked with all we needed and a small living room. Everything was perfect. If you look for the bad? You can find it anywhere. But I was not looking for a bad time. I was looking for a place to stay and enjoy that amazing view!! Found it and we will be back!! Thanks flamingo for making us feel at home!!

This is my second year staying in this motel, and I was just as impressed this time around as I was the first time. The rooms are clean, and they bring fresh linens and make the beds every day. It's right on the beach, usually not too busy there even during spring break. It's within easy walking distance of many great local restaurants and entertainment opportunities. I recommend this place 100%.

Room Tip: The higher up you stay, the more view you have of the ocean and surrounding city!

Really enjoyed the multiple tvs to watch the tournament games, and they also had warm and good-sized beds to allow us comfortable sleep. Also we were allowed to host parties and be really invitational to people. Hot tub is nice and great view for the ocean and it was really an enjoyable experience. Hotel staff was nice as well, and we had a good room to make our food.
