“Retro Motel Experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

The room was spacious but needing a lot of TLC. Problems began with hair all over the sheets when we checked in. Went to the office and they gave us clean sheets which we changed. Ceiling fan was a nice addition but it did not work. Hot water handle fell off in the shower. Dead bolt on the door didn't engage. The little deck next to the room was so dirty and in disrepair it was unusable.

Dear Chuckstertx:
Let me be the first to apologize for the condition your room was in when you checked in and secondly thank you for bringing it to our attention. I firmly believe that we can fix our issues if our guest bring them to our attention. The Maverick Inn has gone thru some management changes and new employees and we are all trying to come together as a TEAM and fix the issues at hand. I hope that you allow and give us a chance to show you that we can provide the service you expect from us. We look forward to seeing you again.

We had the most delightful stay at this wonderful little motor court with a modern flare. Our room was lovely with comfortable king bed, a large walk in shower and beautifully decor. We really loved the little balcony that was so comfortable to sit on in both the early morning and evening.
The continental breakfast was definitely a step above the ordinary with amazing locally roasted coffee, delicious pastries, bagels, scones and English muffins as well as a large assortment of fruit juices and yogurt. We could start the day of playing tourist off right. Since we travel with our little beagle, we found the Maverick Inn to be pet friendly as well. Our "little one" was greeted with her own snacks too enjoy too. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant, and the atmosphere absolutely delightful. We will definitely return to relax and decompress from the big city. Thank you for making our get away such a pleasure.

Although this is a huge step above the old motor courts of my childhood. Beautifully decorated and appointed. I know this will seem trivial but the ceramic coffee cups make all the difference to me. Garden tub was great and the whole inn is so clean and welcoming. Definitely a repeat customer.

Room Tip: IF you want a shower, do not get the garden tub.

The Maverick Inn is a nice place to stay. We stay there from the April 21 - 24, 2014. The only problems we had was when we first arrived we had a broom across our doorway (we were not sure if it was left there from cleaning or was it for us to use), smoke alarm was open with no battery and our shower curtain had mildew/mold on the bottom. Despite these issues I would stay at the Maverick Inn again. The breakfast was great with a choice of items to pick from. Location was perfect it was within walking distance to the heart of Alpine.

The Maverick is a beautifully appointed roadside motel with a wonderfully, friendly staff . We had a lovely room with king sized bed and giant garden tub. No shower in this room, so relax and enjoy a soak. Super clean and well maintained. Loved the location, right near everything. A perfect continental breakfast with homemade baked goods started our mornings. Alpine is a lovely town with lots to do in the area. We loved our stay at The Maverick and will be back as soon as we can. Thanks for making our 35th wedding anniversary trip so memorable! Craig and Cindy Darling-McKinney Texas

Quaint motor inn, simple but has everything you need. We stayed in room 26 with two queens beds and it meet our needs. Beds are nice and soft and the room was very clean. No phones in the rooms, but there are flat screen televisions and free wifi. The complimentary breakfast was great with tasty muffins, cinnamon rolls, and pigs in a blanket. The pool area is nice as well as other outdoor areas.

Room Tip: Room 26 was very nice.

The Maverick was one of the high spots on our trip, There are few of the old motor hotels left and this is one of the best. Park right by your door, bed was great. Breakfast selection was wonderful and the cat on duty would clean up any crumbs you drop. The staff was as friendly as everyone else we met in Alpine.
