In a vacuum, the price would be high. For the area it wasn't bad, but they need to get better fairly quickly to avoid being seen as a poor value, or just wait until they're finished before raising the price. The property is lovely if you like retro - it's a 1940s-era motor court done in a sort of streamline... More

This was one of my worst hotel experiences ever. I booked and paid for a room with two double beds so that I could stay there on a trip with my parents, who are senior citizens. What I got was a room with one king sized bed for them and a roll away wire cot for me. The cot nearly... More

Awfully expensive for what you get. A small motel in a no-signal town. At least you can walk to everything. No coverage by T-Mobile. Recently painted on the outside but the inside still needs work. Just a basic place (which is ok by us) with a high price tag.

Bought out and Re-done the month before. But, a paint job does not a remodel make. The sheets scratchy, they were so new. The bed-spread was time warped in from the early 1970's. A flat screen T.V., some new wood furniture additions and fresh laid carpet. But, the mattresses were obvious left-overs, as was the the bathroom and the paper... More

My husband and I stayed here with our toddler and dog over Valentine's weekend. The owners are very accommodating and while this is a very simple motel -- nothing fancy -- it suited our purposes very well. Los Alamos is a fun, tiny town, and we really enjoyed spending our money on food and wine instead of room and board!... More

As we have relatives in Los Alamos, we have stayed here a few times and always found it to be pleasant and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful--you sure can't beat the price! Recommended for travelers in need of a place in Los Alamos or the surrounding areas.

Stayed here Fri 11/8/13 based on TA ratings, as Solvang hotels were more than we wanted to spend for one night. Room very basic but I wasn't expecting much for $68. Staff was very friendly. Quaint grounds with fountain and picnic table. Free wifi. Problems: Fridge not plugged when we arrived and it never got cold even on max In... More

we found your motel very convenient and comfortable after a long day's drive. A Subway sandwich place is just down the street - my kids' fave. the staff was very accommodating, clean rooms, nice grounds, and the internet service was speedy quick. and the kids especially enjoyed the waterfall in the courtyard with the sound of frogs croaking all night...

Love, love, loved this motel and their staff. Everyone was so accommodating and super nice. I brought my doggies and boyfriend to this quaint little town and fell in love with the ambiance and the characteristic of the motel. My dogs had a blast me and the beau had a blast and we will be going back Los Alamos, CA... More
