Our car broke down on Main Street in Abingdon but we managed to get it started again and quickly drove back to the Alpine Motel which we'd passed on the way into town. We love old, retro, family owned establishments and we felt fortunate we stumbled upon it so we didn't have to stay in a chain motel down the hill.
The owner was friendly and put us in 2 rooms at the far end of the motel. We were very pleased with our experience from the moment we checked in. We had no problems communicating with the proprietor like some reviewers did.
The rooms were huge, the bedding was very nice, beds comfortable and the bathrooms had been renovated to a very acceptable standard. True, there was no hair dryer or shampoo, but I always bring that myself, so it wasn't a problem at all.
I loved the old Alpine Motel sign above the motel.
The view from atop the hill was gorgeous and I was sorry we were there for such a short period of time. We will definitely go back to Abingdon to do some hiking, biking and checking out the local theatre.
I can't understand how some reviewers complain about the continental breakfast after paying $49-$59 per night for a great room! There's just no pleasing some people!
We loved the value for money we got at the Alpine and enjoyed the ambiance and welcoming attitude of the town of Abingdon. We'll be back!
