Anniversary trip through West Texas included a night in Alpine, TX. The 1920's Holland Hotel sounded perfect. We checked in and had a look around the lobby. It was old Texas, what I would expect a hotel of this history to look like. They had one room set up with a pool table. The bar, it opened at 5, had a beautiful ceiling with light fixtures made of old telephone pole insulators. The employees were very friendly and service was first rate. We had dinner reservations at 6:30 but decided to see if they could get us in early, which they could. We ate dinner, blackened Redfish.. very good ! The room was small, by today's standard. It reminded me of the old hotels in England. It was very clean, tastily decorated and the king size bed was perfect.
Bradi was best in class! She was great during our dinner; but best yet took great care of us when we moved our gathering to the lobby. Next time you dine at the Holland Hotel, ask for Bradi. Thanks Bradi!
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.…
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.
It is a cute hotel. More strict on COVID-19 things, like a person not checking in and the key being left in the room. But there was a person in the morning. We booked the night before and overpaid for the room, but demand runs the price. The towels had remnants of another user, makeup it looked like. The bed was clean. Ear plus were provided, I mostly slept through the train but my partner was woken up. Good bar.
