    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.
