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

A nice little roadside motel, clean and fresh. Walk to the little grocer and restaurant close by. A lovely pool and garden in the courtyard. There is a coin washer and dryer available for the guests also.

We stopped here on our way to SF and it was a comparatively cheap place with good value. The room was clean and the owner was very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place! As a bonus, it looks exactly like you would expect an american motel to look like. Really cute!

We discovered this motel by accident when we needed a place to stay on our annual drive from San Diego to Cambria. It was adorable! I describe it as a retro Route 66 type motor court where you drive up and park in front of your room. There are pleasant benches/chairs to sit on outside with a fountain and plantings... More

Needed a one night stay late afternoon. Was lucky to get the last one here. Old motel, but being constantly updated. Some rooms newer, manager invited us to look into an updated room when we were leaving. Ours had old furniture, but a nice firm bed, comfortable and king sized. Small Bath w/shower stall, clean. Had a full kitchen, very... More

I was passing though town on a Saturday night recently and all the other surrounding Inns were completely booked out. I had stayed at this motel years ago and though a very 'modest' little Country Inn, I did not experience the unpleasant 'low-income' overtone which colored my recent visit! The new Owners are very obliging - but there's only so... More

It was a motorcycle trip with three of us looking for a place in Solvang. No places available and ended up at the Alamo Motel instead. Upon driving up, we were a bit surprised, and the women were shocked. We met with Mr. Patel who I think is the proprieter, and is exceptionally kind. I think he made the trip... More

The Motel has been brought back to “like” new by new owner Dan Thompson. This is a slice of Americana history that can't be missed. One of the first motels in America the property is built in a u shape. The original motel had a one car garage next to each guest room. These “Motel's” were designed to house the... More

A friend booked this hotel because it was inexpensive. However, upon entering the motel, we saw immediately, how disguusting this place is. I would have to assume that it's probably used as a "daytime" hotel, for nefarious activities. The room stunk with a chemical (not a cleaning chemical) smell, the carpet was damp and mildewed, the "kitchenette" was a wreck... More
