Very clean and very comfortable beds
Very thin walls. You could heard other rooms bathrooms
Very clean rooms. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.
Issues with remote control and TV.
It was very easy to check in, even with short notice. The room was very cute and clean, and the staff was nice! The price was also a good amount for the service I got. If I'm in the area again, I'll probably be coming back to the Flamingo Motel.
I don't know that there's anything I didn't like. Everything was clean and ready for me before I came in, and the facility was nice. For a first experience in a motel, this was a good one. No complaints.
Both of the employees I dealt with at the front desk, as well as the maid that helped me find my room (bc I misunderstood and got turned around), were super nice and accommodating! The bed was very comfortable and the room had everything you could need. Hella clean, too! I was able to see my car from my room, which I find a plus when in an unfamiliar city. Great location, which was perfectly situated for everything I was in town for. It's on the corner of two busy streets, and as my room was streetside I was able to hear all the hustle and bustle of traffic, which doesn't bother me in the slightest as I sleep better with noise. The walls are a bit thin, and I was able to hear all the particulars of the argument my neighbors had. To be fair, they were probably yelling, so maybe it wasn't so much the walls. But I was also lulled to sleep by the techno music the people downstairs played all night, so maybe it was the walls. Either way, not a huge deal to me, but worth noting for future guests. So if you can't handle city noise or are looking for a real quiet place, maybe this isn't for you. If you're like me and that doesn't bother you, then I highly recommend it. I would definitely stay again.
Room needed just a little bit of maintenance, though it was nothing that took away from my stay. The door had a very slight gap in the doorjam which was definitely noticable but upon checking the door was totally secure. Just something worth noting.
