The Alameda has been experiencing a renaissance over the past few years. New businesses have been springing up such as Rosie's New York Pizza, Calvin's Philly Cheesesteaks, and Tee Nee Thai and it has given the whole area a major face lift. For nearly 2 years, I loved living in this neighborhood. Good people. Good food. Good times.
During that time (2007-09), my dad, a San Jose native of over 30 years, found out I was living in the area. This prompted him to ask me if there were a lot of hookers walking up and down the Alameda. I told him I hadn't seen any. According to his stories, the Alameda was very different when he moved to the area. It was full of pimps, drug dealers, and hookers.
Times have definitely changed for the Alameda. It's has been cleaned up a lot. But one thing that has stayed is the Flamingo Motel. I used to wonder about this particular establishment. How does it stay in business? Who stays there? What would it be like to spend the night there?
Well, back in the day, based on pure speculation, the Flamingo Motel stayed the business came through dirty deeds. It was most likely filled with hookers, Johns, and maybe people involved in extramarital affairs. A night there may have been sinfully delicious.
These days, I have no idea how it stays in business. But I know who stays there. I assume a good bit of the clientele are people involved in extramarital affairs since there always seems to be a market for that, especially during the work week. And I guess other potential clients are average people like me that need place to stay whenever his nearby apartment complex loses water and electricity in the same week. Sadly, this did happen and desperately need to take a shower, drink a cold beer, and play on Facebook or something. In the end, my night here was fairly average.
And by average, I mean there were no hookers, strippers, married women, pimps, or drugs. Just a place to shower, do some work online, and get some rest before work the following day.
The place offers reasonable prices and the room I stayed in was pretty clean. You don't have to worry about catching crabs from the bed or "godknowswhat" from the toilet. It's a solid place to stay, but there are much better options within walking distance of this joint.
By the way, they do not charge by the hour. So for those involved in extramarital affairs, be prepared to pay for a full stay.

All that is previously written, is true.
And the best part, is, they don't even honor their

Disregard the old two comment. It's now under a new owner and the place has been renovated i believe. 50$-55$ 1 adult bedroom or 75$ 2 adult bedroom that includes two beds. Room was very clean, well maintained, new furniture and all. They also had color direct t.v hq! I highly recommend this than those other shade dumpster motels around here. Cash only btw!
