The Quality Inn Flamingo is a real fifties style motel now under the wings of the Quality Inn hotel chain.
On the one hand it’s sad that it’s not independently owned anymore but on the other hand I think Quality Inn did a great job restoring on of these special places.
I really liked the mid century modern looking lobby and breakfast room. At the end of our corridor were still a few rooms under construction not sure if they remain like this or they are restoring them as well.
The pool looked nice but I didn’t use it. There was a tub but it was also under construction.
The price was good, $52,- with a coupon and I got it for 2 nights.
Breakfast was a bit poor for vegetarians, just toast with jelly and the second morning the jelly wasn’t there and I had to ask for it.
The location is perfect, close to the Interstate and close to Speedway where most of the shops and restaurants are.
There were indeed walking around a few strange people on the street, when I was doing the check in my husband even saw a homeless guy wiping off his you know what and throwing the paper near the hotel entrance.
But this is normal in a city and the hotel feels very safe.
The room we had was 225 or 227 (not sure anymore), I asked if I could get one over there and that was possible.
It was on the top floor at the back with a nice view on the property. Nice blue painted walls and a good shower. It was a little bit dusty under the curtains but that didn’t bother me.
The bathroom had a window, I really like showering with daylight. I do not remember if it could be opened or not.
In the lobby was a (promotional off course) box with free toothpaste from Crest.
Overall I enjoyed my stay and I will definitely stay there again next time in Tucson !
