Fabulous Sunday brunch, relaxing atmosphere. We loved the pool and spent majority of our time there. Hallways needed vacuuming and hot tub murky, and a bit rundown but otherwise beautiful place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family fun vacation"
The Flamingo has been updated. The rooms are very nice. Pool is large and comfortable. Cool mornings, warm afternoons.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extra Amenities - but they cost."
Lot of extra amenities that we didn't take advantage of after a lot of driving - lap pool, tennis courts, restaurant - pricey, child care, yoga classes, spa treatments, thursday nights they had west coast swing class for free but it was all spa prices. The carpet was remarkably clean since it was recently remodeled, which is something to be especially […] grateful for when you have a baby crawling around. The TV was really small. The rooms are really modern looking but they were so busy putting a great big statement desk in the room they forgot to make a spot for the refrigerator - which is in the closet. Was expecting queen size beds but they were Fulls which again just isn't enough space. Fun having 2 entrances to the room one into the hall and one out to the parking lot. IHOP is right around the corner so is the grocery store - although there's no microwave which would have been nice. I might stay there again but probably not with the whole family again (2 adults 3 kids). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sleek in design but a little dirty"
We got here late on a sunday night and the lady at the front desk was very nice! We headed to our room and were impressed at first glance! The only thing was that after all of the unpacking was done we started to notice how not so clean it was. The coffee maker which was located in the bathroom of all places had soap spots all over it. Took a shower […] and the shower head had calcium deposits all over. When we were ready for bed we see spots of maybe food stains? We didnt feel like calling the front because it was well past midnight so we had to sleep scooted towards one end. Another warning! Hidden fees everywhere! We asked about wifi and it turns out we have to pay about $7 a day/per device!! Kinda crazy when we already spent $150 for the room... Oh well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place for a nice price"
The room was smaller than expected but it was clean and comfortable.rOur hair dryer didn't work so we called the front desk and they brought one up while we were out and about. The bed was really comfortable. I wish you could order movies on their tv's but you can't. The pool is great and salt water.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, but Dissappointed"
I stayed two nights. The hotel is old, which is easy to tell from the website. Pros: Comfortable bed, decent decor, SAFE neighborhood, dining options within 2 miles. There was a lovely pool area that I didn't care about but others seemed to be enjoying. Cons: Noisy...there are gaps under each door, and my room had two. I was wakened about 6:00AM both […] mornings from people slamming doors and talking loudly. The carpet didn't seem clean, there was an insect in my room, the shower-curtain fell down, lighting is dim in bathroom, water pressure is low. Room service didn't answer when I called. I walked to the restaurant and waited for about 10 minutes, then someone who came in after me was acknowleged and seated...and they never acknowleged me. I gave up and went elsewhere. I would not stay at this hotel again. My preference in Sonoma county is Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express in Windsor. If I was staying in south Sonoma county, I'd try the Hampton in Rohnert Park. The Hilton, Hyatt, and Mariott Courtyard in Santa Rosa are also fine choices. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"family returns traditionally"
Ground floor for my little girl and her 5 pound chihuahua ...it was her birthday..ever thing was a extra cost..the pet cost is high and they aren't allowed anywhere but the room... the people upstairs stomped around all night Slamming drawers and doors, people across the hallway yelling at their dogs no Barking no barking..toilet handle sticks down […] so got up many times trying to play with that because if I called for help all the dogs would be barking across the hall again..over night, we had to be out by 11th and the pool was closed for maintenance when she got up...they allowed us to stay if we checked out by 11am but really we paid too much for 9pm-1045 am the next morning ...I was deeply hurt for her and I will think twice the next time she asks when I asked about staying through Friday the price jumped with the front desk person saying it was Friday and no discounts and seasons cost more and if her boss saw her take a Reservation and cancel it 5 minutes later she would get in trouble....they are no longer into family stays folks..just money....I hope they provide better services to higher paying clients...we definitely got cabin service...

"A happy time for a little old " young lady""
Although my daughter and I only spent one night at the hotel, we both thourghly enjoyed our short stay. The front staff at the reception desk were cordial and made us feel at home right away. I had a very large and pleasant room right off the pool and enjoyed watching all the children and their parents having a good time. This the nicest Handicapped […] Room that I have stayed in.The hotel is only a block away from Montgomery Village and not too far from the Downtown and Historicall Area of Santa Rosa. I definetly will go back again. The only negatives --- the bathroom needs to be re-tiled and spruced up , the Dining Room needs additional staff and additional parking is definetly a must.

"Great Hotel close to SF"
We have been to the Flamingo for many years going with friends and family. We enjoy sitting at the pool and going to dinner at Roberto's and Le Gare and shopping at Montgomery Village. We have met many friends from the Bay Area. We also enjoy going to the Sonoma County Fair and Races in July and AugGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel room was nice refurnished and clean."
Room was nice and clean. The kids really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The layout of the hotel was very great. It was walking distant to restaurants and shopping and neighborhood was nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Mattress are so uncomfortable. Small rooms.Eventhough the breakfast is not complimentary after paying 145 for a room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Advertisment of Dogs welcome"
The hotel advertised that dogs were welcome. When I arrived they told my my dog was not allowed anywhere in the hotel except the my room. The number 1 reason I stayed was because we brought out dog.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
"promises not kept"
We had three rooms reserved. Two of the rooms needed a baby crib or pack-n-play. We requested this when we made our reservation. One family was promised a room every hour - it will be just another hour - all day. The other family had no crib and was promised same all day only to arrive from a wedding at 10:15 and still no crib. One did finally arrive […] at 11:00 pm after many more calls to your desk. We would not recommend your place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Retro Comfort in Santa Rosa"
The Flamingo is a throwback to a different era of hotel hospitality. It's not a corporate cookie cutter. The hotel and grounds are well cared for. The staff is friendly and efficient. Close to parks, downtown, wineries of the Sonoma Valley. Marvelous pool! It's a great find is a sea of mundane options.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Leaf Blowers at 8:30 a,m."
Enjoyed our getaway but did not appreciate gardeners using leaf blowers outside out suite at 8:30 a.m. Called to request them to stop, was told they would have them move their maintenance to another area, but it continued for an hour. NOT PLEASED.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Check in staff were very professional!my room was amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicely maintained 'old school' resort admosphere"
The rooms were slightly 'dated' but very clean and spacious and had all the modern amenities. The grounds were clean with the swimming pool being the hub of a great common area with trees and lounges and drinks, snacks or meals readily available. Did not get to take advantage of the 'resort' because of business but will definitely return with adult […] children and grandchild to relax. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a very LOUD problem with people staying above us the first night. Called the front desk at around 11:30pm and minutes later, it was finally quiet. The next day, I asked to have our room changed. We were given a free upgrade to a beautiful suite for all our troubles!! What a pleasant and unexpected surprise! Great front desk staff!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Mellow But Needs Noise Control"
Love the spa next door and the general mellow atmosphere. However, the last visit there was when school was in session. So there weren't screaming kids in the pool till past 8 pm. Not enjoyable when we were trying to have a relaxing dinner on the patio. We heard later that the hotel has a Pool Membership for Local Families in the summer. Which leaves […] the pool a noisy Marco Polo game ... depriving grown-ups of a pleasant swim -- and negatively affecting our quiet birthday dinner. I think future guests should be warned of this change in the summer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a great hotel wonderful location. Next to major parks and lovely neighborhoods. Very clean and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was a breeze. What was very delightful was the vegan and vegetarian options available at the Terrace grill that was a major plus!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dressed up Motel 6"
This hotel needs some serious updating. The AC unit made a loud ticking noise the whole time it was off. The staff loaned a fan to disguise the noise. The fan in the bathroom was too noisy to have on. The bed was an old style bed where if you or your partner moves, it moves the whole bed. The bed was a low bed style, so you know it's over twenty years […] old. It was awful. Woke up with a stiff back every morning. The room was clean, I'll give that. But every room is next to old wood stairs...need I say more? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We really wanted to love it...:("
The first room they put us in had 2 lightbulbs out, one on the only light for the desk & the other the large fluorescent tube over the sink in the bathroom & the closet door would only slide open around 6 inches making it difficult to hang up your clothes. We called the office & they said they would send maintenance, I asked if we could be moved to […] a different room, the office said they would check & get back to us. So after a few minutes the maintenance man came to the door & we asked if we could be moved to a different room so he called the office & they moved us to a room that had filthy carpet with 2 large stained spots one about 2 feet wide & 4 feet long, hopefully from a leak. The hotel allows pets with a deposit, so we hoped the spots were'nt from a pet! It is hard to find a parking place where our room was located because the hotel also has a health club for public use & people using those facilities take a lot of spaces. We did enjoy the pool after the little kids left, must have been a daycare using the pool cause there were lots of kids, Thursday a work day for most parents. This hotel is'nt cheap, so we had expected a little more. Hopefully they will at least clean the carpets for future guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very small rooms, not has clean as it could be. Grounds and pool area were wonderful. Price of ice cream pool side was unbelievable. $15.00 for two ice cream sandwiches. Should have free coffee early in the morning and free Wi-Fi.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Love Historical hotels. Not a cookie cutter chain."
The only negative for the hotel was the lack of free wifi. The grounds and staff were excellent. Great food in the Terrace Grill as well. I would stay again while in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
They didn't want to give me a king size bed that I had reserved. The room was old that they had put me and finally they switched me to a king size room that was above the kitchen and it smelled like food the whole time from the spa. People partying at night outside our room till about one in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Flamingo was a flop."
1960's motel offers little to the modern traveler. Small bathrooms, barely adequate beds, and old furniture... generally a lack of expected admenities for the price. Spa was separate business next door with little discounts offerred. Pool, though large, was set up for lap swimmers, and difficult for elderly or disabled to make use of. Hotel does a great […] deal of business renting space to conferences, etc, and parking could get difficult during the day or over the weekends when resturant and live music were available. Housekeeping was excellent, cleaning the rooms well daily, and quick to deliver room service, extra towels, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nicely remodeled older property"
Odd layout - however very unique. Great pool area for children - most of the rooms have been nicely remodeled. Very nice- accept the bathrooms counters & sinks are still old. Updated lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
The experience was extremely disappointing.The dining room staff needs to be trained.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the upswing"
You can tell this was a premiere spot in the 60's and 70's based on design and layout. You can also tell the ownership is doing an excellent job of revitalization. The food is affordable and well prepared, the staff is polite and helpful, the grounds are well maintained and the pool is perfect for swimming or playing. It is located near the freeway […] and main arteries and shopping centers abound. If ever I am in the area again, I will stay there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"BottleRock Napa Trip"
Everything was great - especially the extra pillows. Our ONLY complaint was the breakfast for $8.99 with fewer selections than most FREE breakfast buffets. Please consider lowering the price or offering more for the money. Other than that - was a GREAT stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most unique place in Santa Rosa"
I grew up in Santa Rosa, worked here as a teen and I don't know of a better place to stay. Terrific pool, restaurant, and great staff. The hotel is mid century modern but completely updated, clean and nice. It's great to see the most iconic hotel in SR looking her best.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing but a good mattress"
Advertised as recently remodeled, this hotel is overpriced for what you get. We had problems checking in (got someone else's confirmation information presented to us) and although the room had new carpet, the coffee maker and blow dryer were about the least expensive one might find. We couldn't park near our room in the evening and had to walk a ways, […] had to pay for wi-fi and in the morning, I had to call for coffee because none was in our room. Even then, they didn't bring sugar/creamer etc. to go with the coffee packets. The mattress was great, so that probably was new, and the room was clean. The hotel is ok to stay in, but just grossly over priced. I would value this room at about $100 per night in many cities, or $150 per night in Sonoma County. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location was great price wasn't"
The hotel/ resort was nice, a little pricey for what you get. The room and bed were outdated, the bed it's self was springy and uncomfortable the rooms can use some renovation. The pictures on the website look way better than it did in person.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK hotel, well located"
The refurbished rooms and reception and pool areas are nice, but the outside looks like a casino from the 70s. They really need to add mini fridges and safes to the rooms too. Finally, if they promote themselves as a family friendly destination, they need to offer extended availability and timing of the daycare services. Overall stay was comfortable […] though.

"Great hotel and location."
This is a great hotel/resort. The parking is a challenge, especially during the weekend when the nightclub is open. The parking was a real issue by our room as there was bark taking up about 5 spots and two large garbage containers taking up about another 20 spots. Would still recomend this hotel to any of my friends.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Wine tasting trip in Sonoma wine country"
We had a pleasant stay at the hotel: the room was clean and spacious, staff was helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel in general was good enough. The bed was not comfortable. It was not even. When you lay on it, your lower back goes too low. The food was ok but not spectacular. The restaurant service was so bad, we had to wait for so long. They were actually under staff for a long weekend, the should have more servers. Servers were too tired and grumpy!! […] !!

"Fantastic retro hotel - will stay here anytime"
This was a really nice hotel, great location. We really loved the old school layout of the buildings. Not the usual giant rectangle with 6 floors. This had separate two story buildings surrounding a beautiful pool and hotel lounge area. We stayed three nights and ate dinner there two of the night. The hotel and restaurant staff were very attentive! Another […] nice surprise was the fitness area - the gym had a separate cardio room, a real free weights area and also a boxing room. It did cost extra to use the fitness equipment, but well worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice amenities, roomy poolside and good food"
This hotel was very nice, with comfortable beds, and the bonus was their pool wasn't cramped so lots of room around it for relaxation without kids splashing you.
