Flamingo Motel

Who wants to stay at the Flamingo Motel? I’ve seen one in Michigan, but I also have one under my tree.

Flamingo Motel located underneath my Christmas tree.

Click and zoom in for some fun details like $29 per day, Check out time at 11:00 am, after hours key drop, curtains in the window, smaller flamingos around the building, a Do Not Disturb sign, Color TV & air conditioned…. such fun!

Holiday lights on the Flamingo Motel.

Enjoy the week before Christmas. Anticipation is one of the best parts of Christmas.

Vinny and I were driving along US-23 in Michigan, well I was driving and suddenly Vinny shouts “pull over!” I pulled over and what did I see, but possibly the greatest roadside sign on our entire trip. I would have driven right past it!

We pulled into the parking to get the second picture, and it was obvious that motel was no longer in operation, though it seemed to have some residents of sorts. Everyone loves flamingos.

Note, there is also a flamingo motel in Mackinaw City, MI, but this is not that one. This one was somewhere around Bay City, MI.


Road Trip Update: We’re actually back in New York now, but there are many more posts to share about our adventures.
