We stayed just one night but want to go back for an extended stay. Room was delightful. Just like home with all the amenities like the TV, sitting area, etc. Newly redone bathroom too. Owners were great and gave us good leads on places to eat. From this location you can walk to the lake and lots of places to shop and eat. Prices were right in the middle of the range for the area and the time of year.

We were on motorcycle trip through Idaho. The reservations were made on the basis of cost as I had never stayed in Coeur d'Alene before. The owner was at the front desk when we arrived and he was a funny guy with a dry sense of humor. The rooms were neat and each one had a different theme. We asked for directions to a wine store so we could enjoy a bottle of wine before dinner. There were six of us by the way. After we walked back from the wine shop, the owner met us in the parking lot and told us the hotel had two rules. #1 you don't drink wine out of plastic motel glasses so he gave us a wine glass to use. Rule #2 was there are no rules but Rule #1. Great place.

We arrived in the afternoon with a choice of 2 rooms & the manager had me picked, "The English Garden" he said, I'll have a look at both if that's OK. The other was the light house ! Yep we went fro the English Garden. Art was a real gem! I asked for a corkscrew for some wine & he said I had to have a glass to drink wine so he gave me that as well. Art also kindly let us use the motel laundry.......... we had been on the road for a few days & need to wash a few things. All up this was a great place to stay, kinky rooms,but clean comfortable & great location.Thanks Art

It's no wonder that the Flamingo Motel rates so high on Tripadvisor. The motel has a great location, great rooms and clean. Art is a great host and very helpful. The Flamingo is within walking distance(5-10 min) to food and beverages. And if your on a motorcycle this is great. I would definitely stay here again. The only problem, they may be already sold out! Make your reservation ASAP!

Thank you again for the wonderful hospitality. When on a motorcycle trip to Coeur d'Alene, the Flamingos is our home. They are motorcyclist friendly, offering the water hose, towels and even soap to clean those bikes. The rooms are well appointed, clean and lots of fun, each room having it's own theme. The staff are very helpful. Highly recommend this motel.

Stayed in the Flamingo Beach room which was just too cute. Very tropical looking and if you don't keep your eyes open, you might have the " resident kitty "trying to visit with you. We tried the Magic Fingers, & I was asleep before the time ran out. Everything was very clean & comfortable. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: If you like Tropical things - Flamingo Beach room is for you

What a fun place to stay! There are only 12 rooms so make reservations early. We stayed one night in the Victorian room and one night in the Tuscan Garden room. Both are beautifully decorated with careful attention to detail. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are comfortable. There is a nice lending library of DVDs in the office. The owners are nice and helpful. The location is great, on the edge of downtown so you can walk to shops, restaurants, and the park on the lake. We would certainly stay here again.
