Reviewed February 26, 2011

Cute, clean. convenient. Sure. But did I just here somebody sneeze in the next room? And now I just heard --- a foot step - Really. And what is that knocking rattling sound? ANd that crash - the shower curtain just fell off the wall.

I am tired, need night time rest and I feel like I am in a noisy, friendly, ant colony.

The hotel is very convenient to town - and well taken care of - the walls are simply paper thin and the heating system is clanking away. Heavy sleepers - come enjoy.

We stopped here on our way home from our Winter Wonderland Honeymoon in Yellowstone. While the weather outside was cold and frightful, inside this motel was so delightful. We stayed in the warm and toasty Flamingo Beach Themed Room. The owner was kind enough to have the heat cranked up for us before we arrived, so it literally felt like Miami Beach in our tropical getaway. He was also kind enough to recommend a romantic comedy for us to watch from their collection. And we didn't leave the room the whole time we were in Coeur d'Alene. A great place to stay, super comfy bed, and it was a treat to pop a quarter into the machine and experience the "Magic Fingers Bed".

Not much for theme rooms but these were tastefully decorated, not overly done or suffocating you with decor. Owners were friendly and pleasant wit a very friendly cat. Clean rooms with nice amenities. Good coffee, and nice toiletries- for Couer D Alene which is ridiculously expensive this place was refreshing. A little road noise but it dies down while the night is still young- I will be going back to this hotel.

On a cold, snowy winter night we opened the door to our room at the Flamingo Hotel and felt we were transported to a Jimmy Buffet song. From parrots on the wall to the lush carpet and the bed (with Magic Fingers, no less!), my husband and I felt we should have slipped into our swimming suits and had a margarita! Keeping with the Jimmy Buffet theme, we watched a pirate DVD, thanks to the warm and friendly owner.
We would STRONGLY recommend the Flamingo Motel. We will look forward to returning there for another visit.

I'm writing this as I sit in the Emerald Isle room; every room has its own name & designer decor. This motel is lovingly owned and cared for, with classy furniture and neat as a pin. Owners are very friendly and helpful; restaurant recommendations were top notch. You can walk to all the cool art galleries and other shops nearby.

The theme rooms are so much fun but the reason I rate this motel so highly is because the owners made a booking mistake and had to put us in a different room than we had reserved. The room was a 2 bedroom with fridge with faucet and sink next to it. They had us stay in this upgrade and charged us as if we were in the smaller room we had reserved. They said since it was their fault they couldn't charge us any more. We were bicycling, hiking and going out for nice dinners so we had a huge amount of luggage with us. The 2nd bedroom was extremely nice to have after the cracker box at West Glacier. All of the furnishings were so cool and the owners (managers?) were so helpful with restaurants, points of interest, etc. Three nights was not enough at this motel in one of the nicest towns I've ever been in.

A charming, remodeled 1950's-style Motor Inn, in walking distance of old downtown Coeur d’Alene. No stairs! Unique, spotless rooms, wireless Internet, refrigerators, hair dryers, DVD players with a library of films, Starz Movie Channel. $100 per night. With a very friendly "motel cat" to meet and greet you. I will always stay at this motel when I am in Coeur d'Alene. Thank you, BJ.
