The only good things are that it is well located and that the staff in general was friendly. They made us a good last-minute price and they changed our room when there was a problem with the power supply. But the rooms and furniture are old and poorly maintained and there were at least two different kinds of bugs in my bed. I woke up full of bites and the girl who was at the reception in the morning did nothing when I told her and she did not let me use a restroom after checking out. I do not recommend it.
Thank Sara B

The staff was very nice but our room was very small and had no closet, just hangers sitting on a shelf. The bathroom didn't have a place to hold the toilet paper and the bathtub had jets that looked clean but when turned on the jets shot out black dirt. Unfortunately, I was already in the tub when this happened. Yuck!

We drove along Highway 1, and needed a place to stay for one night. Arrived late and left early. At first it looked a bit tragic, but it was actually pretty ok. Clean, and a large room. No problem with the room being to hot. Wakeing up to that oceanview really made our day! Plus for free coffee, parking and wifi. And it was no problem leaving the car outside the motel, while we went for breakfast and a trip to the pier. Great location!

This hotel is an utter shambles. Everything about the stay was unpleasant. The rooms are extremely hot with no air conditioning and look like they haven't been washed in weeks.

The hotel manager is not to be trusted. Incorrectly charged for a two night stay instead of one and will not get back in touch with us to process a refund. Save yourself the hassle and avoid staying here, it will completely ruin a trip to a brilliant city.

The hotel is a complete scam!!

The Alamar is located across the road from the beach and down the street from Stearns Wharf, so the location is excellent. Unfortunately the room itself was awful; it was old, hot and stuffy. There was no air conditioning and the ceiling fan was broken. There was a mini fridge in the room as advertised, but it didn’t work. The television was poor quality and continually froze. The bed and pillows were not comfortable. All in all not value for money.
