This charming hotel is located within steps of the most ever-changing beach. The tides were a show in themselves. One moment you can walk out 50 m the next hour there is no sand. There is a wonderful boardwalk starting at the hotel end which will take you into the old city. The hotel is clean. The staff was extremely... More

We were in Saint-Malo for a wedding in July. The location is great and our room had an ocean view. Michel, Joelle and all the staff were extremly friendly and helpful. They even let us park our bikes on the premises. Rooms were not big but adequate, clean and great view. We think the price was right for what we... More

Nice to be right next to the lovely beach which makes for a pretty way to walk to the old town. The room was pleasant enough and clean. I thought 90 euros was a little pricey for what it was but to be fair it was mid August and there didn't seem to be anything available for less on that... More

This hotel stole our heart, the owner Michel, his wife Joelle and the staff, especially Julie, make us feel like home.The price was low, the service great.We will never forget Saint Malo because off this hotel. Don,t expect a 4* hotel but the rooms where great, clean and all was there. Michel, Joelle and Julie, we see you next year.... More

They charged our credit card even though we called to cancel because of a medical emergency, only a few hours after we originally made a reservation. No consideration at all. Based on the reviews, I think this hotel will grab customers any which way they can.

Very rundown hotel. Reasonably clean but the bed was so old and lumpy it was the worst I have ever experienced. Advertised facilities were not available, no bar, balcony or seaview even though we paid extra and they ran out of food at breakfast. Very difficult access up steep staircase. I would never stay here again, couldn't wait to leave!

The Alpha Ocean is quite basic and far from the historical part of Saint Malo but is convenient as a stopover before catching the morning ferry and is right by the beach. The personnel is friendly and parking is free on the street. On the minus side I've seen better breakfasts for 8 euro and the rooms are not that... More

The hotel is right on the beach, but far from Intra Muros. You can drive there, or even take the bus. However, the location and great view from our room could not make for all the other issues we found during our stay. We had two rooms, one facing the beach, sunny but small, the other facing the street, larger,... More
