Flamingo Motel
Ranked #8 of 22 Hotels in Coeur d'Alene
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The rooms are individually decorated, comfortable and well appointed, with coffee makers, a small frig, and plenty of toiletries. The hosts are warm and friendly, and accommodated my every need. They provide a lending library, small CD collection, microwave, ice, and extra tea and coffee. The location is an easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. I would definitely stay here again. Also, the heater in the room was more than adequate to keep up with cold December temperatures. :-)

We've stayed here several times and always been happy. It's just a couple of blocks to all the shops and restaurants, the owners are helpful with their recommendations, and the room is always clean. Bonus: they have the last working beds with magic fingers in motels!

When we pulled up I was weary. Just because it was small looking from the outside. I looked closer though while my husband got our keys and realized the upkeep of the outside of the building was pristine and colorful. The rooms we stayed in were decorated beautifully and thoughtfully. Each room had it's own theme and personal touches. Most importantly, it was so clean! The bathroom looked nearly brand new and polished. They had absolutely everything you could think of a hotel room needing. I work in a hotel so I'm extremely critical when I stay other places, I would recommend this quaint little place to everyone. So great!

This is a lovely little place near downtown. The owners are great attentive people and the room are all decorated in themes. Very clean. I don't think you can go wrong here as long as your up for an old school motel.

This is a gem. Clean, clean, clean. Great location. Wonderful value. Owners could not be more pleasant. Unique décor. Fridge, TV, wifi, video, movie library. Real coffee cups, carpet like new, everything works. Three blocks from downtown core.
Like going back in time. Quality and service from an era when things like that were important.

I love these old-school roadside motels that have been loving kept up, and the Flamingo is one of them! Give me some kitschy character over the ticky tacky boxes of chain hotels!

We stayed in the Country Cottage. It came with a small fridge, and two beds sporting the vintage Magic Fingers massagers. It's still a great deal at 25 cents for 15 minutes! Everything was clean and obviously cared for. We felt very welcome and at home!

The motel is off the main drag, so you'll get traffic noise - there's nothing you can do about that. Also, you park right outside of your room, so if your neighbors come home late, you'll will probably hear that.

It's an easy walk to where the action is, and there's a gas station on the corner.

We had a great stay and would very much recommend!

Room Tip: Try get a room as far from the road as you can to minimize traffic noise.

I was visiting from Alaska for a family event. It had been a while since my last visit to CDA and I wanted to be near downtown. Options downtown are limited but this place is perfectly located. This is a no frills motel, which is rather apparent from this site. With that being said, it is also very clean and carefully maintained. I thought it was managed very well and I was extremely happy with the service, cleanliness, and overall quality of my visit. I would stay again, just for the location, but the service and value will keep me coming back to the Flamingo.
