We stayed here for two nights while we were having our house tented. We live in LA so just wanted a quick easy getaway and that is exactly what we got! This place is definitely not for everyone but we loved it, and for $89, it was a steal! I'd rather spend money on food and on Bell Street you... More

We got here at 10pm on our way south from Monteray. Got the upgraded room which was very basic but COOL (someone added photos of this room, no.17). The room is small, but perfect for short stay. The shower was fun with hot water (no matter what hour), and good towels. The toilet was dirty or looked "unfinished" with the... More

It's unfair to rate this property in its current state. The relatively new owners are set to renovate but I'm not sure when. We stayed just one night and got the room that's most likely in the worst shape - stained carpets, faucet links heavily/loudly, etc. The beds were just OK. It was pretty quiet most of the night until... More

OK, so here's the weirdest review I have ever written. On the one hand... 1) I needed to make a small revision to the reservation, so three days before I called the hotel numerous times. No answer. Two days before, I AND hotels.com tried to call them multiple times. No answer. The day before- I AND hotels.com tried to call... More

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
