We stayed in Alpine as a stop-off on the Sunset Limited train, primarily to visit Big Bend, but in the end our short stay in the town ended up being a highlight of the trip.
The hotel is located right across the street from the station, which is very convenient. When we arrived, there was no sign of our rental car, so the person on reception kindly called the company, who duly arrived and parked our car in the station car-park - again, very convenient free parking, right across the street from the hotel.
The hotel itself is classic station-style, with plenty of dark wood and a lovely renovated lobby. Our room was a decent size (not huge), with a good bathroom and high-quality toiletries provided, and a very comfortable bed. We also didn't have any trouble at all sleeping, despite our room overlooking the station itself.
We had a great breakfast at a local cafe, for which you receive a voucher, and a free drink of our choice at the bar. The barman was really accomodating, and has a great old book of cocktails, which he was happy to experiment with. Subsequently, we walked down the street to the Railroad Blues bar, which was a great experience on a Saturday night, and very close to the hotel.
Overall, the hotel was clean, brilliantly renovated, conveniently located and had helpful, friendly staff. For the price (we paid around $90 I think), it couldn't be beaten.
