Reviewed 12 August 2017

I was stuck in Castlegar for the night and needed a place to spend the night. I found this place on line and was super happy with my decision. The place is cute and clean and has everything anyone could want. And the owners were sweet hearts, very accommodating and going above and beyond to help me out.

Room was very clean and in good condition. Room 5 was a 1-bedroom apt with a well-stocked kitchenette and living space. Two TV's. Quiet. Great little motel. A/C was in bedroom so living space was a little warm. Clean but small bathroom.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Flamingo during a trip to Vancouver from Sask. We didn't make any reservations and just decided to stay wherever on the trip. The afternoon we arrived Castlegar there were very few motels/hotels with availability for some reason, so we stopped in at the Flamingo and they had one room left. We checked it out and the rate was $85 a night. The room was very very clean and quite comfortable. It is a small motel with only 6 rooms I believe, and we had a great night's sleep here. I would really recommend this motel if you are looking for some old motel charm and a great nightly rate.

Across the street from THE BRAND NEW AND AMAZING CASTLEGAR KIA, is a gem of a hotel. 6 rooms, beautiful yard, amazing owners and great price points. YOu can go up the road to a Sandman or Super 8 but if a Motel is your Forte, then this is a must stay.

This was a small motel, only six units. The room seemed to be aged but we surmised that the owners are currently working on it and have made improvements, such as the shower stall seemed to have been recently replaced and the bathroom fixtures and kitchen taps were new. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. I don't recall any exterior noise invading our space.

Naomi and Jeffrey were great hosts and went over and above in providing service. We were on a motorcycle weekend and stayed there two nights. The 2 bed room we had was roomy and had nice wood floors and was excellent $$ value. Beds were comfortable and room inside was quiet even though the motel is located on a noisy street. Very friendly and accommodating to motorcyclists. I recommend this motel.
