Flamingo Motel & Suites Jul 25, 2010
This is a very expensive dump of a motel. There traffic must all come from the unsuspecting tourists shopping online like myself. They market themselves well and offer 2 free tickets to Noah's Ark- America's largest water park for every night that you stay there. Since an all day pass is $36, that is a $72 dollar value. Something to consider if you are travelling with kids.
After searching all of the other VERY PRICEY accomodations in this area, I felt that this one did provide the better value and looked nice online, but $173 later I learned I was wrong.
When we showed up to check in the lines were terrible due to everyone in the office needing something, trying to get tickets to local attractions, or complaining. Not a great first impression, however our room had to be paid in advance to get the free ticket deal and no refunds, so this was to be our motel regardless.
After an hour checking in, we finally got our room. I dont think this thing had been updated since the 1950s. The bathroom was blue and the facuets dripped non-stop. The toilet rocked if you sat on it, and there was a damp mold smell in the entire hotel room. The beds were a joke and too long for the frame so if you sat on the end of the bed, the bed slipped off the frame and to the ground you went. I am not saying that this didn't create some amusement, but this is not something that you would intentionally pay for. There was an old fridge in the room, but it didn't work.
The motel however did have a basketball court and a pool that the kids enjoyed. It was kept up dispite them not updateing or keeping up the rooms. Probably due to those items being viewable to the average passerby looking to choose a location to stay.
It is close to everything and many things are within walking distance. This is definitely a plus since there is no parking in the area and you will lose your spot at the motel when you leave.
NOT reccommended at all.
