Very comfortable rooms (in the suite across the street) a bit noisy on the weekends (staff heard about this and have said they will address the sound from the bar down the street.) Breakfast was excellent and available almost all hours and was great to have at 5:00AM before hitting the road to go birding. Staff was very helpful with... More

A great place for birders to stay in the Rio Grande Valley. A fantastic central location close to all the main birding sites. Keith Hackland is a very nice guy and an incredibly knowledgeable and extremely helpful and thoughtful host. We (my wife and I in our late 60's) stayed in a Garden Suite (103, Garden Apt Deluxe) for 8... More

We stayed here 3 nights as part of a birding trip to Texas. This classic building was made into a B&B some years ago. Rooms are all large (ours a small suite with kitchenette) at VERY reasonable prices. Everything is clean and well-cared for. Keith, our host, is very knowledgeable about local birds and birding. Two modest criticisms: common areas,... More

We were touring the southern half of Texas from Houston down to South Padre Island, up to the Edwards Plateau and back to Houston. We stayed in 4 different accomodations; this was the most disappointing stopover. While the advice given where to go birding was excellent, and the birding was brilliant, don't go if you want to stay somewhere to... More

Great location and delightful accommodations with like-minded host and guests (birders). We have stayed in three different rooms / suites. All have been comfortable, well-appointed, and very reasonably priced. The wifi was a little temperamental from time to time and the outlets (for chargers) somewhat scattered, but these are minor inconveniences in a lovely and homey inn. We hope to... More

This is our second visit to Alamo inn. The main building is old but has been nicely maintained and restored. Our room was very nice with a separate living room, large refrigerator and microwave as well as coffe maker. Comfortable beds and very comfortable sofas in the living room area. Very clean room. Good internet. Very reasonable prices for the... More

I'm biased 'cos I'm a birder and I love this place, so if you are too then there's really nothing more to say. However, I'll talk a little about birding at the end, as I don't want our passion to get in the way of an un-biased review. If you're not into birds this is still a wicked little place... More

Wanted a place with a kitchen so I could cook my own meals while hunkering down for a week of insane deadlines. Great prices, amazing atmosphere, convenient location and considerate staff. Pulled a few all nighters; on my last night drank some whiskey, took a nice hot bath, slept for 14-hours, then cooked a rejuvenating breakfast and enjoyed the scenery.... More

The Alamo Inn is so much more than the photos presented on this site. It is spacious, clean, affordable, extremely comfortable and located in the town square, walking distance to restaurants. We were met at the door by Keith who showed us to our room and then upgraded us to a larger room. I recommend the Alamo Inn and will... More

We usually stay in Hampton Inns and Comfort Inns and that type of motel. This place was recommended to us by several people (I have never heard a bad word about it) and it exceeded our expectations. The rates are excellent. The King Size mattress is the best I have ever slept on (and we have a very expensive KS... More
