... panicking. I started thinking about my friends and family and how I am not going to be around them for five months. I started thinking about the flight and how terrified I am of it. I started thinking about the dangers that come along with being in a foreign country.
I went and talked to my mom and explained how I was feeling. After a long hug and a long talk, she ensured me that I was going to be fine and that I was going to have ...
It's a rainy, cold winter day. We decide to chill out at brother Mark’s house. Satiated with lots of cold beer, Mark provides me with his favorite "Kenny Chesney" hat and guitar. I entertain... mostly myself. ...
The next day, we take Woody on a field trip to the Dogfish Head Brewery located in Milton, DE where my brother lives. Heading into Rehoboth, we find our favorite "Happy Hour" restaurant “Claws” is closed for the season. So we head over to its sister restaurant “Fins”. We dive into a bountiful selection of fresh Oysters on the half shell. ...
... with popping the Christmas Crackers, wearing the crown found inside and this year blowing the whistles found inside. We did attempt to follow the musical instructions but it is a good thing that we did not have an audience even though Alexandra secretly recorded the whole thing on her phone and posted it on her Facebook. That was a lot of fun!!! Finally, breakfast or should I say brunch was served: creamed chipped beef served on toasts ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Flamingo Motel Ocean City
My husband & our 3 children have been coming to the Flamingo for 7 years. We have never considered going anywhere else. The service is wonderful, our room is always clean. We are right by the beach. Thank you for a great 7 years. You will always have our Business.
Wonderful place to stay
My husband and our 2 kids and my son's friend just came back from a week's stay at the flmingo. We stayed in tower 2,in a oceanview room like I requested. It was very clean and the maid service was great. The kids loved the indoor pool. Even though we had wonderful weather they went in the indoor pool. There was only one thing that I didn't like and that was that you had to pay for ice in the ice machine which broke down and we couldn't get ice. But other than that it was great. The location was wonderful also, right by everything and only a few blocks to the boarwalk and tram cars. My family and I will be comming back to the Flamingo again. Keep up the good work...........
We stayed 3 nights in the older motel section. I have to say I was not really impressed at all. The main complaint was the bathroom. It was very small, and the sink was in the bathroom. THere was only a very small vanity shelf over the sink, so there was really no room to put out our stuff. The towels were about the size of a hand towel and very thin. It looked very old.
Great Location,Very Clean!
Just came back from a 3 nt. trip to OC. We usually go with alot of family members & stay in a condo. Just my sister & my 13 yr. old son & I drove down this year. All we needed was a motel. We picked a good one. The Flamingo is in a great location. They have two 5 story Tower Buildings & one 3 floor motel. We stayed in the motel. We picked it over the towers because it was least expensive. The room was small but quite adequate. We had 2 DBL. beds, table & 2 chairs, refrig & microwave, nice private balcony with a great side ocean view! The bathroom was very very small, but spotless! We enjoyed the outdoor pool & the indoor pool. Both were very well kept. Considering the price, we feel we got alot. We definitly recommend it. I know we will stay there again.
We stayed at the Flamingo for our one year anniversary, and we wanted a reasonably priced hotel with things to do in case if it rained. We stay in Ocean City at least once every year, and have stayed at the Eden Roc, Inlet Lodge, Frontiertown, Best Western Flagship, Quality Inn, and others. This was average - better than some, not as good as others, but for the price, was a good choice. One of the better in my opinion. Nice stay!
Love the Flamingo
I love this hotel. I have come here for years and I consider it the only spot to stay. It's convienent to everything I'm after and there's plenty of parking. I've never had any problems with the staff and I find them more than helpful on every request. It's more of a family style place to stay instead of the stuffiness of the bigger chain hotels. I would recommend it to anyone.
Love this place
My family has been staying at this motel for many years. This place is very family oriented. We have found it to be very clean. It is in a wonderful location and very reasonable.
Nice, Clean, and great location
We have stayed in this hotel a few times, and we have stayed in other hotels in the area. This hotel is a great buy for your buck. Every time we have stayed here, it has been very clean. It's not a fancy hotel, but it is clean, and in a great location. Only a few blocks to the board walk and a few steps from the beach. There is a waterpark and a ride park across the street. Also mini golf and restaurants all around it. Indoor and outdoor pool. Great hotel to stay in if you have children.
Missing jewelry,puke, and noise
we stayed here in 2001..in the older motel section...people above us were rude and loud everynite..called front desk...finally took care of the noise after a while...puke in the parking lot..we had requested that maid service just bring us fresh towels each day...when we were there..they were asked to NOT come in the room...my daughter misplaced a diamond and ruby ring in our room..we turned the room upside down looking for it.....the next day my daughter and her friend were coming back to our room and CAUGHT two maids coming out of our room....we informed the front desk of the missing ring....it was never found...at least NOT by us...not pointing any fingers...but....what were they doing in there??? BEWARE!!
Nice Family hotel
I have stayed in this hotel a few times. Nice, clean family hotel. Nice size pool and indoor pool, both clean. Also a good location for small children. There is a park called Jolly Rogers right across the street. It's a place with rides and games and a water park. Also plenty of mini golf courses in the area. Very easy access to the beach!
