Nice historic hotel with character. The room was clean and kept up to date enough for a comfortable and pleasant stay. Wish we had arrived early enough to have a glass of wine and a game of billiards in the evening. Our room faced the street in front and we did not notice any noise at night. There are minimal complimentary breakfast items available; instant oatmeal, yogurt, granola bars. Judy's Bread and Breakfast is a short walk down the street and had a good breakfast. Our bathroom sink drain had so strainer, so anything small that was dropped would go down the drain.

Staying at the 1928 vintage Holland Hotel brought some feeling of the history of this area. J. R. Holland (not Ewing) commissioned Henry Trost to design and build this hotel. It is still being remodeled but it looks early 1900’s vintage. The location is perfect to explore downtown Alpine. We walked to the courthouse and spotted an owl dozing near the roof! So our room was average and somewhat dusty, but I’m sure there were many stories that featured this room as a prime character. The lobby and open area are amazing in their appearance; we shot a few games of pool in the side room while our companions set up a Mahjong game in the front room. We all felt at home here or maybe at the home of a rancher/cattleman from the past. The train runs about 100 yards from the hotel; earplugs are provided, and they are needed! You can always stay at a chain hotel but stay here and experience part of Alpine’s history.

Love the historic feel of this hotel, especially that it was decorated in Harry Potter theme for their upcoming Halloween dinner. That was kind of fun. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. We would love to have stayed longer to enjoy the property and walk around the historic town a bit more.

We did hear the trains go by but once we fell asleep, did not notice them at all. I read the reviews before staying here, and took note of the fact that they provide ear plugs for good reason, but the noise did not seem to affect our sleep at all.

The morning coffee was great! But that was about it in terms of breakfast although there were several packaged items available. We couldn’t find any cafés or restaurants open nearby even by 9am, so we left hungry.

The reception desk staff were very welcoming and accommodating, but if you have to interface with an actual person, you need to plan around the hours of 8a -8p as stated in their hotel description.

Checking in at the Holland Hotel, on 3/10/2020, the front desk receptionist informed me that the main desk would be staffed until 8PM. After 8PM if we had emergency to call 911 or come to the front desk and call from that phone. No bellman or luggage assistance. One luggage cart for the hotel.

The hotel common area was beautifully restored/maintained... but we stayed in room 306. The very small bathroom had a shower which you could step into from the hallway. The woodwork finish and toilet caulking were in disrepair. The bathroom ceiling had two drywall patches screwed into the ceiling. The bedroom mattress squeaked with every movement. But....we were provided ear plugs for the noise from trains directly across the street.

We didn't see any ghosts...so it was a good one time visit.

We stayed one night at the hotel.

1. No one at the front desk after 4:00 pm. Instead, must call the individual/caretaker who lives in the hotel if one needs assistance.
2. Our toilet would not stop “running” after flushing. It took 2 visits from a plumber that evening before it was fixed.
3. Television did not work and had to call the in house caretaker to fix.
4. The following morning we decided to leave our luggage in the room while we went to a restaurant for breakfast. Thus, we hung the “Do not Disturb” sign on the door. When we returned a short time later (2 hours before checkout), we discovered the housekeeping staff had been in the room and removed sheets and towels.

Stayed one evening based on mostly nice reviews. Should of read them closer. Appreciate the historical feel of the hotel, but other than that, it was way way over priced.

Not a good nights sleep at all, due to no sound proofing and location being by the Main Street and near active railroad tracks. The train runs and blasts the horns every two hours throughout the night and still loud despite provided earplugs. Super loud random noises coming from refrigerator and air conditioning unit.

Amenities were bare and bedding and bathroom towels well worn and toiletries mediocre. Pillow cases and bed sheets had hair from previous occupant and faint stains. Question the cleanliness and sanitary precautions taken if any.

Also of note, this property charges for trained ADA standard service animals.

I understand trying to make up money due to covid challenges but this was beyond overpriced for even the most minimal bare standards. Minimal staffing makes it difficult to discuss and potentially rectify situations.

JR Holland, a local rancher, built this property in 1928. Recognized as a Texas Historic Landmark in 1980, numerous owners have continued to restore the building through the years. The hotel’s common areas are quite inviting, exuding historic Texas charm and character. Unfortunately, our room on the second floor was somewhat lacking (perhaps it has not been renovated yet). More problematic is that the hotel is directly across the street from the train tracks/Amtrak stop. The train blasts its horns every few hours. We overnighted Easter Sunday, and miraculously the noise stopped for about 8 hours in the night, but we heard the train frequently before and after. The loud noise of our room’s air conditioner didn’t add to the ambience. On the plus side, the hotel’s location is within walking distance of art galleries and Murphy Street. The murals adorning Alpine’s buildings are beautiful, so allow time for a stroll around town. The hotel’s bar/restaurant, the Century, is worthy of a stop too. We enjoyed a delicious meal in the hacienda courtyard. Our visit to Alpine was pleasant for a short one-night stay (we left early the next morning for Big Bend National Park, less than 80 miles away).

Response from Sarah Davison, General Manager at Holland Hotel
Responded Apr 24, 2021
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback and we appreciate you reaching out. The origin of the Tri-County area was build around the railroad back in the day to accommodate workers, and since then the towns have continued to build around them. However, if you're not used to them they can be quite the shock which is why we provide ear plugs in the rooms. When making reservations please inform the front desk that you would prefer a room on the back side of the property, and as long as we have the availability we would be more than happy to meet those requests for you! Safe travels along your journey and we hope to make it up to you again in the near future! Best Regards,

Stayed there for several days during a family reunion in November 2017.
Our room had a serious issue that caused me to seek medical care. After working up the courage to speak to management about the issue, we were given a different room and offered a full refund for our stay, which amounted to around $750. While we did not ask for a full refund, we were really impressed with the fact that someone was taking responsibility.
This year, we were talking about another trip and that's when we found out from our family member that the entire refund had been denied once we had departed. They live 2,000 miles away from Alpine and eventually gave up fighting the case. We had assumed all was well and had not reimbursed our family member the $750 and they were too embarrassed to ask us for it. Talk about embarrassment on our part.
Bait and switch of the worst kind. Terrible customer service, if there was a minus 1, I would give it.
The hotel does have charm, the furniture in the room was ok, breakfast was ok, if a little sparse. Location is great for checking out the downtown area. Train tracks are right outside the front door, on the other side of a two-lane street, and trains run all night. All standard rooms seem to face the train tracks. Onsite restaurant is expensive.
Would we return? Definitely not!

The Holland Hotel is historic, with that special vibe, and I'm sure that back in the day it was THE place to stay in Alpine. It's still a good choice, with a great downtown location, you just have to adjust your expectations.

We stayed there two different times, in two different rooms. Both rooms were adequate and did not seem cramped. The beds were comfortable and there were enough pillows, but one room had MUCH nicer sheets and blankets, even though the rooms were on the same floor. Odd. One also had more counter space in the bathroom, although honestly both bathrooms were very small (as befitting the age of the hotel). There were enough towels and amenities and the water pressure in the shower was surprisingly good. There was a coffee maker and minifridge in each room, but only enough coffee for one cup each. No tea was provided. Although the room was reasonably clean, the carpets need to be either professionally cleaned or replaced.

One room had a built-in AC unit which was quiet and efficient. The other had an add-on unit on the inside wall that started dripping in the middle of the night. We put a trash can under it and eventually turned it off entirely. The ceiling fan saved the day that time.

There is coffee provided downstairs after about 7 am but the breakfast offerings were minimal and all prepackaged. The lobby is spectacular, with a separate pool room off to the side, very nice ambiance, and the covered outside terrace is very nice. We did not sample the attached restaurant and bar. Be aware that the desk is not staffed at night but there is a number you can call.

Now to the major downside - the noise. The train tracks are only a few hundred feet away, because back in the day, trains were how you got around and the best hotels were located next to the tracks. The Holland does provide earplugs, but honestly, they don't make much difference. Some nights there will be four or more trains, with their accompanying whistles, but Sunday we heard none. It makes no difference if you're on the front or back side of the hotel, the noise level is basically the same.

It's a nice looking old hotel located in front of the Alpine train station. We stayed two nights (Friday and Saturday) and expected some flaws but the train horn (Friday only) and AC noise were so loud. Ear plugs are left in the room for the guests but they don't help very much. Also, the walls are thin. If you are light sleeper, I wouldn't recommend.

Hello, There is a 2 bedroom suite, which comfortably sleeps 6, that can adjoin to the deluxe king parlor suite. This configuration will provide 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms and 3 bathrooms. If they are available during your stay, those would be a great solution, with a terrific amount of space. Another option would be an adjoining standard king and 2 queen room (sleeping 6) and then the newly renovated Nina's Room across the hall which is an original room that features built in bunkbeds. The front desk will be happy to help you. Call 432.837.2800 Thanks for thinking of us! Nicole van Winden General Manager
