Stopped at this motel while driving cross country and was not disappointed. Everything was clean and it appears to be recently remodeled with new furniture. Mexican restaurant on-site was very well priced. Owners are very friendly and are proud of their property. Will stay again.

An older motel, but for one night we found it a great option in comparison to the other hotels in town. Very friendly and efficient check in and great wifi. We really enjoyed staying here and would return if we found ourselves in that locality again.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area. The room was lovely and recently remodeled with charming decor that really brought home you weren't just staying in some chain. Comfy bed, huge flatscreen and nice amenities. The gentleman who owned the place was super friendly and accommodating when we needed additional pillows and we were within walking...

I was traveling Route 66 and staying at some of the smaller, budget motels. This is a very nice one; clean and well-maintained. The price was right as well. The manager recommended a good restaurant (a Mexican restaurant right next door). I definitely recommend this motel.

I was moving from Cincinnati, OH to Santa Fe, NM and was literally nodding off at the wheel. I pulled off at the very next exit in Elk City, OK. TripAdvisor had high ratings for this little gem and it did not disappoint. For what it is (a roadside route 66 motel) the Flamingo Inn was perfect. Older building and...

On the last night of a five day road trip, this was an excellent place to crash- definitely the best out of the four motels we stayed at. The employees are super friendly and incredibly helpful. It felt good to support a locally owned business instead of a chain. The rooms were really nice and clean. I liked the route...

The rooms were clean and nicely updated from their original incarnation in the glory days of Route 66. The owner/manager was a cheerful and accommodating man. I liked being able to park the car at the door of our unit for easy unpacking and packing. I would stay here again.

One of the original Route 66 roadside Motels and a must-do. Fabulous location, rooms were clean and great coffee in the morning. We had no issues with the facilities and checking in was quick, efficient and easy. Well worth staying.

Stayed at Flamingo Inn two times while working out of town and found the rooms very clean and comfortable and the owners/managers very accommodating. I would recommend this motel to anyone passing through Elk City.
