Historical Traveler Reviews Flamingo Motel Panama City Beach
A nice little place
We recently vacationed in PCB the week of June 15 - 20 and stayed at the Flamingo Motel. They are located close to most attractions which was nice. I have discovered you do a lot of driving at PCB cause things are spread out. The motel is oceanfront but not all rooms are oceanfront. Our room was located streetside but close to the pool area.
They have two pools and a hot tub. The room was clean and comfortable.
Maid service was very prompt. Usually our room would be cleaned by the time we got back from the beach most days which was around noon or 1 PM. The staff were very courtesous and helpful. I have recommended the Flamingo to some friends of ours who will be visiting PCB in August.
It's really a nice little place to stay.
Loved the Flamingo
We have stayed at the Flamingo twice, and enjoyed the hotel both times. The kids loved the pools and made many friends on the trip. The hotel is very family oriented. We will stay there again.
A great place to stay
Stayed there last year on the 1st vacation we had taken in years and am ready to make resevations for this summer. I think I have found a new summer home away from home. Great folks to work with.
We agree with all of the previous reviews except when it comes to accountability by the owners, which are family. We had stayed there once and loved it. We came back to stay there again and had plumbing problems. Our toilet overflowed in the evening. I quickly shut off the water supply or several units below would have been damaged. I went to the night clerk who advised me to see the owner in the morning and gave me her name. The clerk refused to clean up the mess and directed us as guests to clean it up and gave us a plunger!! The next morning I asked to speak with the owner to the owner, seeing her name tag. She denied being the owner but quickly corrected that when I explained I knew her name. I asked to be credited a night for the time it had caused us in clean up and basically poor concern for us as guests. She refused to do anything and said that some children from the previous guests must have put some toys down it. The facilities/pool guy came the next day and admitted that there were serious problems with the plumbing that a mere plunger could not have solved. Oh well, we stopped some major damage, spent time cleaning and had to use the public restroom on the outside ground level.In a nutshell, we sought legal action, their owner lied in statements, their attorney lied in statements, and they lost the suit but are calling a bluff. We would have to have serial numbers of specific items to hold until they paid what the court ordered. It just wasn't worth it!!!Great play, but less than ethical family owners. I hope that no one has any problems!!!Where has ethics, responsibility and accountability gone??? Beware!!!
The Flamingo Is Sweet
I thought the place was really nice and I had enough room to stay in there all Spring Break with my dad, uncle, and cousin. It was clean the whole time, I would recommend this motel to anyone looking to stay in Panama City Beach, right on the beach! The pool was great, too, although everyone there agreed the music could be better than the classical stuff or whatever but other than that it rocked!
This was a great place to stay! We stayed in the "honeymoon suite" and it was very nice! Had a great view overlooking the pool and ocean!
It is very cute with great facilities. Not only is the whole motel really nice but also the rooms themselves. Great room-service, wonderful gardin, clean pools, and at a super-low price! It was very enjoyable!
A new family tradition
Three years ago, our family started a new tradition for our vacations - a junior suite at the Flamingo. We knew the price was reasonable, but did not expect the value we got for our money. The suite was spacious, extremly clean, and fit the bill for what we were looking for in a home away from home for our family. The property is very family friendly, and the staff is very knowledgable about great places to go for entertainment or dining. The location was on a quiet stretch, but still near the great spots. We sometimes talk about trying somewhere new for vacation, but The Flamigo always beckons us to come back.
Great Place To Stay
A friend told me about this nice place for our trip to Panama City Beach the end of October. She and her family stay here every year, several times a year. For the price I was a little afraid. Upon arrival, I was extremely pleased. It was a nice family run hotel. It is close to everything and the staff is very friendly. I will definately stay here again and recommend it to all of my friends.
Clean and cute
discovered this little jewel several years ago - great basics - wonderful family operated lodging - right on the beach - great prices!!!!

... of Florida. Went to the beach for about an hour & a half then met everyone for dinner. I've come to America but gone for dinner at a German place, not sure how that works. Was good though but portion was massive and couldn't eat it all. Then we all headed back to the hotel and decided to have our own pool party! I'll let you work out how that one went lol!

... and traditional than Seaside. The Red Bar is busy, noisy, and looks a bit of a dive, but the queue outside despite a 90minute wait to be seated hinted at the quality inside. We were not to be disappointed. My dish of blackened grouper fish (chunky fillet grilled with Cajun spices) was by far the best seafood dish I've ever eaten, and up there with some of the best food I've eaten, period. If you ever find yourself in that neck of the woods, ...
We have really enjoyed topsail hill, pretty centrally located, bike riding and mostly private beach access. Plus lakes, kayak and canoe rentals, tall pines to camp under and great staff. Today is red and purple flag day again so no beach. Hit the pool, did some bike riding ...
... in the back of the van on the way back to our truck, oh, and the canoe ride. Ended the day grilling fresh tuna. Oh man, definitely Ricks favorite. Sorry no pics. Rick grilled it perfectly too. And fresh sweet corn. Not as good as iowa, but still tasted ...
... them to learn.... Had a scare today with camper... Came back from seaside and only the back a\c was working. The rest of the camper was dead. Thankfully Haole was in the back where it was cool. And Rick was persistent and able to call Rocky Mountain rv and talk through options. Turned out it was the campsite 50amp hookup that was the problem. Very very thankful!! Going inland tomorrow for a kayak trip, looking forward to ...
