... SeaTac WiFi was OK the first day but locked me out of secure connections preventing me from accessing e-mail, phone and any other secure networks the next morning :o(. Denver WiFi was awesome :o)
Once in Delaware,I was happy to see it is a slower paced, bike friendly rural mix of rustic and new. I could live here....... , but now I have to figure out what I'll do :o)

Today we try and use up all the leftover food and so an eclectic menu of sorts. No beach but will go poolside. Sam is much better at his "swimming" and moves about the pool with much less anxiety. William seems to like the water too. We continue to try and eat our way out of leftovers so we won't have too much to throw out ...
And so we are back at the beach which looks the same. Mild mishap with Sam getting some sand in his eyes but lucky for him his dad is an eye guy. Lunch back at home with Dan grilling up some hotdogs, sausage, shrimp and corn. Ben was off to practice with Dan and family off to visit their friends. We had dinner at Espuma which was very good and as bonus was close ...
Rain on and off so after breakfast, we did indoor stuff like reading and Sam playing with uncle Ben. We ventured out for lunch and managed to avoid the rain at the Dogfish Head restaurant. While the kids napped (Dan too) we read and watched some videos. After they woke up, Lenore and I went for a walk while Dan, Ben and Sam went in the pool as the sun finally came ...
Cloudy and some rain today. Didn't get great sleep last night when the pump for the pool went off at 2 am and wouldn't stop, the problem being it needs new bearings and was quite loud. Lunch at home from Arenas and then a walk to Funland where Sam won some stuffed toys, which is good because doesn't have many toys. Early night as we are all pretty ...

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!
