I booked a long weekend escape before reading the reviews posted on this website. I was afraid I would regret not canceling my stay but instead I was surprised. My room was clean, shower larger than expected, and quiet. My dog was also comfortable and plenty of room to wander about. Since the reviews made it clear that there were... More

Recommend by a friend. This place is a through back to the old motor court days. Rooms are small, but it included a full kitchenette! For some reason I could dig the pink and green original tile in the bathroom. I was very pleased with the value I got here and will return.

After a nine hour drive we checked into the Antelope and although the place looked a bit shabby we were okay with that as it was a good location for us. We turned on the window AC units and laid down just to relax a bit. After a few minutes I noticed bugs on the ceiling and when I looked... More

I remember you. You checked in in the middle of the afternoon and shortly thereafter complained to the head housekeeper about hundreds of bugs. She went back to the room with you, and counted, I believe, 12 tiny bugs, all of which were green and therefore not cockroaches or waterbugs. She also noticed that you had had the door open... More

We chose the Antelope Lodge for an overnight stopover in Alpine based on its less- expensive price and it's potential appeal as a quaint, non-corporate motel. The individual bungalows have a certain amount of old-fashioned, Western charm with their vintage furniture and quirky decorations. We enjoyed sitting in the vintage lawn chair on the front porch in the late afternoon... More

Thank you for your review. I object, however, to your repeated statements that the "owners don't care". I am one of the owners, and indeed my husband and I do care, very much, about the Lodge and our guests. That being said, I admit there are occasions when things do not work the way we would like them to. I... More

Antelope Lodge is a quaint, pleasant lotel in scenic Alpine, Tx. The grounds were neat and shady. The set-up and layout are great.I like parking the car near the door. The old style room was very clean. The covered porch was delightful. Great spot to relax any time of the day. The staff was helpful and friendly. My only minus... More

You most certainly did not get head lice at the Antelope Lodge. According to the CDC, it is very rare to get head lice other than by direct head-to-head contact. (http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/prevent.html) The only possible way to have gotten head lice at the Lodge would have been from unclean linens. But, according to your review, you scrutinized each item inside and... More

I have been staying at the Antelope for ten years now and thru the years it has slowly gone down hill. The last trip I booked over a month out and requested a specific room and at my usual bizz.rate. When I checked in they moved me to a different room and charged me an additional $20 dollars per night.... More

Dear "Michael G". Your review is clearly a form of revenge for you, and I hope it makes you feel better. There are, however, many factual errors in it. First, your "usual business rate" is a rate from at least 4 years ago, as we last changed our rates last in 2012. We have no record that you stayed with... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Lodge. Actually, the owners are the same as they have been for almost 20 years: John & Teri Smith. And we were out at the Lodge on both Friday (when I brought out fresh peaches from the trees at our home) and Saturday, but we must have missed you. I’m sorry... More

This place could be great if some money was spent on it. We stayed here after chasing storms for the day down on the Mexican border and called ahead and asked for 14 rooms which they were happy to supply. The rooms are divided into little cabins and are spread out over the property amongst little trees and cactus. Outside... More
