There are a lot of bad reviews about this place, but The Alamo has always been here and it now gives cheap rooms to people who need a bed. It does not claim to be a 5 star hotel and they dont care. They give rooms to the Russian kids who need them and Ive sent plenty of people there...

Understand that I am the Tired Old Fisherman, my requirements in lodging are minimal. I had heard of a hot bite at nearby Assategue Island and made the trip down without checking for rooms to crash at that night. Turns out there was some kind of car show in OC and there wasn't a room to be found, except at...

Overpriced dump! Stayed for a friend's bachelorette party. And none of us stayed the night in the room. Their 'suite' had a bathroom with no door or sink, a room with a full sized bed/sink/window air conditioner in the wall and then on the other side was a room with cheetah patterned carpets, four bunk beds in a room and...

I recommend staying for one night when you're extremely drunk with a bunch of friends just for the story you'll come out with. It's a disgusting pit of despair worthy of any horror movie. The only Alamo worth remembering... or forgetting immediately.

This was by far the worst motel Ihave ever stayed in. The room smelled terrible and the bathroom got worst. Don't think it was ever cleaned. It smelled like someone had urinated all over in there. There was only about 1/3 of a roll of toilet paper and no soap. We had to drive to Walmart at 10:30 at night...

We saw the room. It may be a good sleep here but don't expect anything newish as the furnishings are seemingly worn with age. There is no ice machine for your drink nor do they have any ice freely proffered at the office. The best features of this place is all the staff is especially nice, warm and friendly so...
