Broken warped front door doesn’t lock. Bathroom door is water damaged and won’t close. Plywood floors are dirty and grayed from mopping along with plywood furniture. No hooks to hang anything in tiny bathroom. No hooks to hang anything in room. Smallest pedestal sink basin in existence. No place to even stash a toothbrush! Stylish sconces are so dim it’s not possible to read at night. Most expensive selection of curated snacks that would total $100 if eaten. Pet poop in public area. Bar in public area isn’t open in evenings nor daytime. Skip this place. Some over antiqued foofy BnB would be preferable to this trying to be Gen Z hipster crash spot. Restaurants in area are very expensive.
Do not stay on a Tuesday/Wednesday. The town closes down on those days, at least during the fall/winter, and there is nowhere to eat except a drive-in. We ended up getting to-go at Charlies for dinner Tuesday night. All the other restaurants except Norman’s were closed. We had our dog and they don’t have outdoor dining and are not pet friendly, so a drive-in was it. ( Burgers looked great, but we weren’t in the mood for that.) This place claims to be pet friendly, but is really only pet tolerant; not allowed to leave the dog in the room alone although we leave him at home without incident. So we left after one night, forfeiting the second night’s charge. Otherwise, we had to drive 20-30 minutes for a decent sit-down restaurant for all meals. The staff was friendly and helpful, but not particularly competent. We had to go back to the office to get the wifi password. We had to go back to the office to get glasses to drink our wine (and anything else) because none in the kitchenette. We got three foam coffee cups and a glass jelly jar. When I ran water into the jar, it foamed up with suds. I have no idea what it was but didn’t drink out of it. Being nice and friendly goes only so far.…
my friend and i came up here on an unexpected roadtrip, and stay in the room with a kitchen! it was a lovely stay, cute room and an interesting lil town! i would definitely go back to this lil place and do it again!
I wish I could give the Alamo Motel 0 stars. We arrived and pulled up our confirmation which displayed a 2021 reservation and were told our reservation did not exist - and it instead was for the following year. We had driven for four hours, and were told that there were no rooms available and there was nothing that they could do. Of course every hotel in the area was booked. We tried Skyview and received better service from their reception trying to help us out with a place to stay vs. the staff at the Alamo. After failing to provide us with a solution, they handed us a voucher and said "sorry." We finally found a hotel further away that had availability and asked for their staff to cover at least half. After being told to just "be patient" even though we waited an hour and a half for a solution, they finally agreed to cover their portion for the new hotel reservation and asked for their voucher back. I have never been so disrespected from someone in the hospitality industry. It was an awful experience.…
The town itself has very limited accommodations which range from a very cool bed & breakfast to this motel. It's a pretty basic place with average accommodation. Since the cars park in front of the rooms and the place is basically U-shaped it can get rather noise. The lawn and fire pit area is nice but adds to the overall noise. I'd prefer rooms with finished floor rather than wood that looks like it was just put down. As I said, it's basic but no longer a value really except it is less expensive than the alternatives. Stay is price and being in-town are your top priorities.
Really enjoyed our stay here. the place was well done, the COVID process was great, room was comfortable. The low cost was honestly a bonus since we really liked it! Really a diamond in the rough and Bell’s across the street was phenomenal.
We were in room 12 and upon entering, noticed that the floor was bare plywood with the exception of a cowhide nailed in the center of the room. Some of the hide had pulled away from the nails leaving an easy way to trip, not to mention the sharp points of the remains of the nails. There is a bench under the TV for laying things but no drawers or chairs in sight. We could not get the TV to work and it stumped two of the employees too. We could not figure out the thermostat for cooling. No microwave, coffee or even plastic-wrapped cups. The beds were comfortable enough and the shower worked. All of this for $199 per night
There are plenty of plusses for this property, but it's not for the picky traveler. It's funky, retro, and hipster hip. Note that the property HAS been renovated since many of these older reviews, so take any bad comments with that in mind. We stayed in 2 different rooms, the 2 Queen with a kitchen (room 8) that was snug, and the King suite (room 14) that was much bigger. It was nice to have a kitchen, although all we used was its very small fridge. The bathroom in 8 is TINY and has not been re-done. Room 14 had a larger bathroom, a bigger kitchen (full-sized fridge) a dining table, a record player, etc. The kitchens were not very well stocked, could have used more dishes and glasses, even mismatched would be fine. The beds were wonderful - super comfy. AC worked great. The common areas are darling, with a central firepit, lawns, picnic tables, games like horseshoes, and cornhole. Could use more lighting out front so you could enjoy the lawn area into the evening. There is a wine shop/pouring room on the property that's fun! Very close - walking distance to all the great restaurants etc. I did think that $240 a night for Sat/Sunday was high, but the place was packed. Price was much better for weeknights.…
While the room was cute and clean, the bathroom (to #8, at least), has clearly not been redone since the motel was acquired. It was tiny and dirty with gross old tile. Made me feel like I was showering in my college door. Truly too bad as the rest of the motel is great. Will not be back.
This is a quirky, clean and well decorated motel. The little artistic touches, local produce basket, excellent toiletries and outside fire pit make this is a great stay for the price. Los Alamos is charming definitely worth spending some time exploring.
