“Nice little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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! This is a simple, clean place motel run by very nice people.

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 the morning the shower ran out of hot water after just one short shower
Bed was very hard
They put a late (11 pm) arrival right next to us even though the motel was almost empty
The hair dryer they gave us was not working, no hot air just room temp

Cannot recommend.

Walking distance to Full of Life Flatbread. (See separate review)
General store right next door.

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 long.
thank you!

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 soon and guaranteed to stay at the Alamo.

Room Tip: We stayed right in the middle of the motel which was great. It keeps us right in the hub of everythi...

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!
