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

We stayed here a year ago and enjoyed the charming retro feeling of this beige and aqua motor motel. However, when pulling up to the front, the quaintness seemed to have lessened and the new black and white mix of southwestern and 1950's styling just did not have the same effect. Our king size bed was very firm, a plus... More

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.
