The Flamingo Motel is a retro style place, something of a time warp, quirky and very well managed. It's very clean, quiet, and staff is very courteous. TV is a bit fidgety (HDMI2 setting is lost every time you turn it off, which is annoying), and the climate control makes a racket (just shut it off at night unless you like to be awakened by the noise). The motel is in a clean and safe part of town. I would definitely go back there if in San Jose again.

Urban Oasis
The Flamingo is a fantastic little oasis and a great value. The location is great. Just park and walk to many food and entertainment options. The motel is old school but clean and fresh. Parking is also very easy. I travel to San Jose often and will seek out the Flamingo.

Fine for Business - Maybe not if traveling w/kids
I had no issues with the hotel at all. The exterior was a little scary (yellow crime-scene like tape around all of the supporting posts), but the room was nice and quite clean. The reception and staff were all very nice and helpful and it was clear that it was a family run business and they do a good job of it. I had no issue with the showers as some people mentioned. I just followed the instructions I was told at check in and all worked fine. My only comment is that all of my co-workers were quite concerned about my staying at this location as the neighborhood is apparently not good at all. They were quite worried about my safety--to the point where they wanted to move me to another hotel. However, I told them I was fine and everything seemed well. Just something to keep in mind if you are traveling with kids.
