We don't like to make reservations but after this last experience I think we might start doing that. We were tired and hot, the AC in the car was out. I was wanted to take a shower, maybe have a drink and go to bed. We knew after driving around the place that The Alamo wasn't a five star hotel,...

We got to Ocean City and there was no other place to stay (We stayed on the dock the first night somewhere lol, which was better than this), needless to say we had to drive inland to get something and saw the rates and thought it might worth it if we can't get anything out. My friend threw up on...

I was out in Ocean City during the off season, and there weren't too many choices. I love old motels. When I saw the cheery neon sign with the sombrero on top, I thought I had a winner for sure. I've rarely been more wrong. Now I know firsthand what happens to these wonderful old roadside treasures right before the...

I stayed at the Alamo back in 2005. Back then, I didn't know about TripAdvisor. I wish I did. I traveled with my sister and nephew. We just wanted a clean, quite place to stay for a couple of nights while at the beach. My sister was so afraid, she did not want to even lay on the bed. Our...

My wife and I stayed at the Alamo one October weekend in the off season. It was great! The price was right and it was within a short driving distance of the beach at Assateague where i went to surf and convenient to Ocean City downtown. Not only that, it was right next door to a place to get coffee...
