I have booked Oak Tree Inn in Alpine, TX after reading favorable reviews here and on Hotels.com. I did not expect a 5 star luxury accommodations. However, the hotel gives description of being newly renovated. It was renovated all right - cosmetically, maybe. To check in we had to go to Penny's Diner that was right on the property (same parking lot). The first big sign that we saw printed in huge red letters was "Leave it. Loose it" - a warning for leaving your stuff in the car. Then we had to walk back across the parking lot to the hotel itself. Our room was an average size. Refrigerator did not work. Microwave had obvious nasty food stains splattered all over. The worst thing though was the smell of mildew. We tried opening doors and windows and could not shake it at all. We arrived late and were exhausted after a long drive. No one had the strength to go back to the diner and try to change the room in the middle of the night. Plus the parking lot was getting busy with tipsy local youths that were hooping and hollering, and vomiting right at the entrance to the diner. There is a Best Western right next to this hotel, and a brand new Holidays Inn is going up right across the street. So for your visit to Big Bend choose these instead.
The diner was the brightest spot during our stay. Service was great and food was well prepared.
