“A great place to stay in West Texas”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

I stayed at the Holland one night on a solo bicycling trip that took me through West Texas, so in 3 days I stayed at the Gage in Marathon, the Paisano in Marfa, and the Holland in Alpine. Comparing them all, they were absolutely fine to stay in but the Holland was the best value for rooms and service. The Holland has a wonderful lobby and they are doing work on remodeling another room in the downstairs. I had a jacuzzi suite for a wonderful price, spacious, comfortable, great towels and bathrobes, I really enjoyed it and at a price that I got only a room with no bath at the Gage! The staff were very nice and helpful, and frankly seemed to be enjoying what they do. It is right downtown across from the Amtrak, close to several good restaurants. I will stay there again for sure.

I had planned to,stay only two nights, had some car trouble and ended up staying four nights.
The staff was uniquely friendly and helpful. It is a great small town. Everything is pretty much within walking distance.
The rooms are very well appointed. It is a beautiful historic building.
I will stay again when I come to visit the Big Bend.

The Holland doesn't seem to get a lot of publicity, perhaps because of the Gage being a better publicist. This is a very nice hotel, though. We would happily stay here any time we could. The lobby is beautiful, old vintage construction, but the rooms are fairly contemporary. Great bath, very comfortable bed. They make a joke about being close to the railroad tracks and put earplugs on your pillow. We never heard a thing, but we were facing the back of the hotel. Maybe the front can have some noise. There's no restaurant or bar, but they are supposedly working on one, and they gave us vouchers for breakfast at a cute little place down the street. Very nice room.

Room Tip: We were on the back side, 2nd floor and had no noise of any kind. We had a room with a whirlpool bat...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Holland Hotel. We stayed in Suite 208. It had a lovely decorated living/dining area and a very comfortable bedroom. This room had a balcony that faced the street. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. The check-in was fast and friendly. We were offered a complimentary beer on arrival. The train noise did not bother us. The Holland House doesn't serve food but they did offer us a free breakfast voucher at a restaurant a block down.
I found my stay at the Holland House very enjoyable. It was clean, comfortable and unique. I would recommend it.

We spent two nights at the Holland Hotel while on a road tour of the Big Bend area, one night at the beginning of our trip and one night at the end. We had the opportunity to stay in two different rooms, each very nice. The hotel is a combination of preserved old charm with modern comforts. The rooms are all different, very comfortable and the bedding was wonderful. The lobby area and patio were so enjoyable. The staff was wonderful, the best we have experienced in all our travels. We look forward to visiting Alpine and the Big Bend area again and especially a return stay at the Holland Hotel.

We spent one night at the Holland on our way to Big Bend. We loved the old world charm of the building and the quality furnishings. Our room was very spacious and we did not need to wear the earplugs provided to muffle noise from passing trains, who are required to blow there horns at each intersection, as basically we did not notice them.

The accommodation is very comfortable and staff extremely attentive and friendly. We were a little sad that guests did not make more of the wonderful lounge area on the ground floor but perhaps everyone was like us, just out and about it this great little town.

We wondered around town and attended the opening of a local restaurant nearby. The Museum of Big Bend is well worth a visit. We were not fortunate enough to stay on a night when the local Blues venue had live music but would check this out to co-ordinate better for any future stay. We had lunch at Buffalo Rose, great food and a unique down to earth venue. We were not so fortunate with our evening meal as we later were to find out that most places are closed on Sunday night and so choices were limited. We made a poor choice in Pennys Diner and the food was unfortunately "workmanlike". We ate breakfast at the Bread and Breakfast Cafe, paid for by the Holland and the food was excellent.

Overall, there is a growing choice of accommodation in Alpine but The Holland is a unique place and well worth the cost to stay there. We will return.

Room Tip: All rooms are individually furnished.

Accidentally having to stay in an unknown place, we discovered old world charm and beauty with modern comforts and special attention. We strangers in a strange place were made to feel most welcome as old friends . The furnishings were most comfortable. We would recommend this hotel and area as a destination point in itself.
