Rip offPosted Dec 2, 2013
after checking in and requesting A jacuzzi tub I was told that my rate through Expedia didn't cover that cost... I ended up paying almost as much as I could have for a much better hotel. plumbing was horrible as well and the walls are so thin I could hear conversations Bologna... not planning to stay here again and wish I would have read these reviews before I went

Terrific location; less than terrific accommodatioPosted Sep 30, 2013
Pros: Location, location, location. Nice roof deck that overlooks the ocean.
Cons: Paint, furniture, windows, bathroom towels, etc. Given the state of the rooms, it is WAY overpriced.
Location: Right on the beach.
The Ala Mar MOTEL has a fabulous location. Unfortuntely, the rooms reflect vintage 1950's and, likely, haven't been updated since. I did not check out Yelp ahead of time but had I done so, I would have gone elsewhere.

Great Location!Posted Sep 18, 2013
Pros: Fantastic location! Right in the middle of all the shoreline offerings!
Cons: Although charming, this old property could be better kept. Not well maintained.
Location: 5 minute walk to the pier. 10 minute walk to the marina. Many good places to eat, all within a short walk.
The on line pictures do not represent the majority of the rooms, misleading!

Not so cleanPosted Sep 15, 2013
Cons: Clean this place up
Location: Great location.
Not clean, smells bad, water dripping faucets, unfinished paint on ceiling. Loud noise right outside window. Dirty blanket.

Waste of moneyPosted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Rooms are awful, dirty carpet peeling up, mold in the bathroom, marks all over the walls. Asked for a late check out due to a local race, of which they forgot about and tried to throw us out to clean. Zero parking. Very small lot with cars easily hitting eachother. Parking on the street is either permit only or 90 minute. Nothing to accommodate guests.

The room was really run down.Posted Aug 18, 2013
Pros: Good view and was across the street from the beach. That was it's saving grace.
Cons: The room we where in needed to be remodeled
Location: Good location. Close to pier and all beach activities are across the street.
A party was above us that had noisy guests at 2:00 in the morning. It;s okay to party, but not with screaming and yelling.

The location is great. The man checking us in Monday was very friendly but the girl checking us out Tuesday didn't even speak to us when we went in for our breakfast. She was watching an exercise equipment infomercial!

Close to the Beach, but a little too ShabbyPosted Jul 2, 2013
Pros: The location of the hotel is optimal! Beachfront and about a block away from the pier.
Cons: There were hardly any facilities in the room and the bathroom was pretty outdated. They did have a large jacuzzi in the room, but it was out of order!
Location: We were able to walk to beach, pier, shopping, restaurants and clubs. Perfect location!
This hotel was "OK" for our stay because we were only there for 1 night and spend most of the time at the beach or out until the wee hours. After a long day at the beach and in the sun, a good shower would have been nice. However, the shower was a little less than pleasant. It didn't really bother us, as we are pretty low maintenance, but I would imagine that it would not be up to other's standards. We would probably stay there again if we are in the area because the price is right for the LOCATION!

Very TiredPosted Jun 25, 2013
Pros: Location across the street to the beach. Good Wi-Fi & big screen TV
Cons: A complete make over
Location: Walk to beach, Sterns Wharf and harbor shops/restaurants.
Very tired furnishings, musty smell. Mold around the shower. Scratchy sheets, hard pillows. No air conditioning, just a fan. Next door to a Veterans Hall, so noisy party at night - earplugs didn't help. No in-room coffee. Phone just a prop - not connected to anything. Continental breakfast was just coffee, juice and packaged sweet rolls from 7-11. All this luxury for only $300.00 and no view!
