It was within walking distance of many restaurants. The best part was it was directly across the street from the beach!
Unfortunetly, I cannot comment on one feature or attribute that I enjoyed at the Alamar By The Sea Motel. The rooms looked absolutely nothing like the ones online. They were extremely small and cramped. You literally had to step sideways to cross the bed. The room was adorned with furniture that looked like it came from a yard sale.... 20 years ago. There wasn't an iron in the room, and only 2 out of the 4 lights functioned properly. Parking was a pain because they only had 8 or 10 parking spots, but they were compact, and small. I was always worried that it was going to get damanged. The breakfast was a joke, they crammed a waffle maker on the front counter at the reservation desk. This motel was a terrible disappointment.
Poor facility and dirty. Way too for thé poor state it is in.
The location was great as across the street was the ocean and a block down was the pier. The guy at check in was very nice as well.
Bed was rock hard. No light in bathroom. Only one light in the room was functional. Smelled musty. The guy at check out seemed more interested in the TV than the guests.
Place,near the beach
Small old towells ,only for hands and face,lights equipment not working - no reaction from stuff, Breckfast exist - but you need get it in very small place downstares and bring to you room- very non comfortable
Needs basic maintenance.
Plumbing, Electrical outlet put my cell phone out, but clerk fixed.
Nice clean room with seaview, perfect location.
Great location across the street from the beach/warf. Sundeck offers a beautiful place to enjoy breakfast.
3 star location, 1 star room. Small bathroom, shower backs up, noises from other guests walking upstairs.
great location, by the sea.
did not have thermostat for heat, there was a fake firplace but no instructions on how to work it.The bathroom window did not close, but we were on 2nd floor. the facility needed updating. The breakfast was to be picked up and carried back to your room, or eaten on the patio.
The oceanfront location is absolutely perfect! The suite rooms with the jacuzzi tubs are the only way to go.
Seriously, bring your own towels. You will also want to consider ear plugs as this is an old wood structure which is great at carrying noise.
