Stayed here June 15-16, 2013 and overall it was a great stay, I found many positives and a few minor negatives. The hotel seems well maintained by the owner who was painting the fountain out front when we arrived. The patio and pool deck all around the pool looked to have been recently renovated and helped the hotel seem a little more modern than its overall appearance. The room was in great shape and very clean. Soft pillows and modern sheets as well as a recently completely renovated bathroom. The room had central air which is a nice change from most old hotel/motels at the beach.

VA BEACH BONUS TIP: Because there aren't many high rise hotels on the beach between 17th and 15th street, the beach at 16th (where you would go if you stayed here) is comparably less crowded.

However, there was a noise problem this weekend because we could hear people playing the drinking game "quarters" until 3am, someone was having loud sex, and another room had loud children running around yelling all morning. There weren't any other guests staying on our floor near us in the hotel so I imagine that maybe the air vents were carrying the noise from other rooms around the hotel, or the floors/walls are thin. Also, when the owner or his wife were not at the front desk the girl working there barely spoke english so trying to check in/out was a bit of an exercise, but she was friendly and pleasant nonetheless. The hotel parking lot was two houses over but they let us park there 4 hours before check-in and all day Sunday which was nice.
Overall the staff was friendly, the room was nice, comfy and clean, and it is located close to the beach and many restaurants.

I spent three nights at the Alamar Resort Inn in a 1 bedroom unit with a full kitchen. The Inn is conveniently located 2 blocks from the boardwalk on the beach yet in a quiet area. Restaurants and shops are a short walk away. The owners and staff are very friendly and willing to help to make your stay the best it can be. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a 1 bedroom with a full kitchen

Ummm...I wanted to surprise my daughter and treat her for a nice break...so we stayed here durning the Nuptune Festival..the location was close to the event but we felt uncomfortable...felt like we were being watched because cameras everywhere. The advertisement said there was a lounge...gameroom...ice machine not the case.....no one in office in the evenings...seemed like once they got the money the office people disappeared...the shower handle broke on me and the owner blamed me for breaking it..this place could be a gold mine if managed properly...

AlamarResort, Owner at Alamar Resort Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 24 March 2015

The Alamar Resort Inn is a privately owned hotel in the resort area of Virginia Beach and our
focus is on providing a family environment for our guests. We get many complements and many repeat guests because we maintain a quiet and enjoyable environment and our rules are in place to make that environment possible.

This reservation was made online for 2 guests with hotel policies stated under important information. Hotel rates are always based on the number of guests, and, at check-in, this guest stated that he was traveling with his wife and one child. As stated in our polices, guests under 12 have no fee, so, initially, there was no additional charge. When the 2 additional teenage children arrived , the rate was adjusted $10 a day for each one. When this guest became angry at the rate increase, we referred her to the polices clearly stated on her online reservation information.

Unfortunately, and, to our regret, sometimes no matter what we do , there will be occasions when a guest is not happy. When this guest's rate was adjusted properly for the number of people in her party, she became angry, and , from that point on, we could do nothing right in her eyes. Every request made by this guest was honored promptly and this guest was treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism throughout her stay. It is our goal that each of our guests have as wonderful and memorable vacation as possible

I spent an entire month at the Alamar while I was relocating to the area. It offered me everything I needed. The suite was clean and offered a kitchen with all the comforts of home. The owners and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for daily walks on the boardwalk. Thanks to all for making my transition to a new town so easy.

The Alamar Resort Inn is a wonderful place to stay for your get away. The owners and staff were always friendly and helpful, and made us feel nothing but welcomed. I'm really funny about how places smell when I stay there, because some hotel smell weird, and I can gladly say The Alamar Resort Inn was very refreshing, as well as perfectly clean! Definitely appropriate for a family stay, business stay, couples, or even solo. Great location. This is the only place I would stay when I come back to V.A., and I advise everyone else to stay here too!

We stayed at the Alamar one night while traveling through Virginia Beach. We knew we would get a good night's rest when we read the rules involving respect for fellow guests. It is a small hotel, just a block and a half from the boardwalk and beach. Our room was a nice size and the bathroom had been remodeled. The microwave and refrigerator were a plus. The resort is very well maintained and clean. It looked and was very cozy. We would definitely stay there again when we pass through the area. Next time we hope to stay additional nights..
