Let me begin by saying that I like the location, look & feel, outdoor fire pit area and also the wine tasting room that is right on the grounds. Unfortunately, other than location, I don't stay at a motel or hotel for those things. I stay for reasonable rates to the value provided, up-to-date rooms unless it's a historic hotel... More

Stayed only 1 night as part of our LA to SF road trip. Wanted somewhere quirky and unusual to stay, somewhere if the beaten path. And so in our research, we came across Los Alamos. Took a chance on this tiny motel with few mixed reviews, as it was so cheap, about £36. Before we arrived we had seen a... More

A nice little hotel on our way to San Fransisco . We took an upgraded room that had everything replaced in it and very clean. The plywood decor was a little odd but the cowskin rug was cool and fit in with the theme of the hotel.

Traveling north from Oceanside area to our redwood region of upstate California. Needed a reasonable place to get some sleep. The night clerk was a funny guy with personality. Got a reasonable rate and the room was quiet, comfortable and clean. Nothing fancy, but reminded us of a vintage Route 66 Motel, with style! Did the job, good night's rest... More

I took a flyer on this one and booked a very modestly priced room 23 miles from where I was working. It was to merely spend one more night to extend my stay so I figured "why not?". Here's why not: - It's a nice, scenic 23 mile drive from Santa Maria. But I'm not sure it's worth it to... More

I want to like The Alamo...its quirky and vintage. But I just can't overlook basic customer service and a decent level of amenities. The toilet was old, rusted and disgusting. The carpet was stained. We were leaving early and there was no hot water..and no one in the office. I sent an email later in the day and although I... More

Needed somewhere to stay on route to Big Sur that was affordable, and this was perfect, very reasonable, cool place and very nice owner. Located in an interesting small town off the 101. Highly recommend it!

This place is great! One of the best values if you are looking for a place to stay in Los Alamos. We got an updated room, which was just awesome. The rooms are not big here, but they are very hip and nice. Our bed was literally the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. I keep dreaming about it... More

We got one of the redecorated rooms with 2 queen beds. Very comfortable beds and pillows, and the decor is restful and tasteful. The motel has a wine tasting area and although we didn't partake, it added a great ambience to the lodgings. There's a fire pit and great lighting, and there were people enjoying this very cool little spot... More
