Quality Inn Flamingo Downtown

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is a Motel type of accommodations (no shared hallway). It is showing its age, and could use some thorough cleaning and renovation.

Had a pile of dirty towels on my front door as I checked in. Many stains in the carpet. Breakfast closes at 9, at 8:50 there was no food left nor replaced. Free wifi is ok.

We found the hotel of convenient location, clean with accommodating staff.

My first impression from lobby was that this place was dated and run-down. That impression was confirmed when I got to my room. Although, there were newer fixtures and amenities (coffee pot, refrig and microwave) in the room, this place had seen better days. There were a number of little things that I could overlook, however when I noticed that the smoke detector had been removed from the wall, I called the front desk. I told them about the missing smoke detector, a burnt out light bulb and no top sheet on the stained comforter. I was assured that the items would taken care of while I was out to dinner. Upon my return, two hours later, nothing was fixed. The staff was very friendly and courteous while listening to my request, but they didn't take care of what is simply a safety issue.

I'm very happy and I will defiantly recomond to my friends to stay in this hotel too

I've stayed here a few times and always had a wonderful time. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is very spacious and clean.it's nice to have a motel that is as inviting as the Quality Inn Flamingo.

Marcos help us a lot to get settled in. The room was nice & clean.

Room is dirty but stuff is helpful. The toilet is broken

It's your average low-priced Tucson motel. There was a long brown hair on the wall of the shower and the plugs are all two-prong plugs. Internet works great and staff was nice. It's a place to sleep, but nothing to get excited over. The bed was decent, the pillows are small.

Very nice staff and good free breakfast. They did not run out of anything. The only ding is tired and worn carpet. Excellent value.

Good size room. Comfortable bed. Refrigerator was missing. Badly stained carpet. The breakfast quality varied from day to day.

Pleasantly surprised by a clean and well kept property. Bed comfortable. Bathroom clean. Convenient to highway, downtown and campus. Good value.

I love this little hotel, but the location is bad! It's not a good part of town and if you have to walk anywhere....don't. So if you're driving then it will be fine. The room was clean and the staff was pleasant.

This is a 2-star hotel for sure, but it had pretty good access to the main bicycle trails. All the ice machines were down one day.

The hotel is cute. It's been re-vamped, and the rooms are clean, new, and fresh looking. The beds are comfy, the breakfast substantial, and the workers at the front desk were very nice and helpful and kind. The location of the hotel is sort of meh, but I do not know if that is just the part of Tucson it is located in. It was a pretty good value for the money....so if you don't mind a kind of side of the road off the beaten path type place, it may be for you.

I like the location because its by the bars and close to downtown!

Didn't realize this until I checked out and arrived at the airport, but there were bugs in the room that were biting me when I slept! I got bug bites along both arms as well as all over my neck! Wasn't sure if it was mosquitos or spiders or whatever! Didn't realize the bites as they were happening but now I have bumps everywhere! Would not stay there again.

stayed the night in tucson on the way to phoenix. hotel as i was driving up didnt look special but once inside the staff was extremely nice and helpful and the rooms were great. no complaints. right down the street from AU also.

Very dirty, carpet stained, changed room, lamp switch was missing, cigarrette burn on bed cover, curtain hooks were out of its rail. Requested morning wake up call at 2;30 am in order to take our son to the airport, noone called, almost missed the flight. We acturally want to ask for a refund. We strongly suggest that you do NOT recommand this motel.

I was impressed, the check in staff was prompt and courteous, and the lobby décor was nice. The hotel was easy to find and conveniently located. It ideally suited what I was looking for, the bed was comfortable, the room décor surprisingly nice, clean, with amenities that you usually only find in the nicer hotels. An expanded breakfast bar with eggs and bacon along with the usual pastries and cereal, even a DIY waffle station (which I wish I had seen first). My only mild complaints are the quality of the pillows, standard for a hotel, but I wish they were nicer and the parking lot is a little tight. I will certainly stay here again; it beat out the “boutique hotel” we stayed at in Phoenix this weekend by a mile. That hotel cost 3X as much and wasn’t as clean or courteous and didn’t have most of the amenities the Flamingo did.
