We stayed here for a night after driving from Austin, en route to Big Bend National Park.
The hotel is beautiful, with a stunning, beamed ceiling lobby and dining hall. The room was spotless and spacious, with a super comfy bed. Finding it was easy as it's on the main route through town, with parking outside.
When we were there it was very off season, which may be why not many of the local restaurants and bars weren't open. We found a really nice one a few blocks away though which we could walk to (I can't remember the name!). I would say there isn't much to do at night in town but that may just have been due to it being off season.
In the morning we were the only guests, and when we went down to breakfast there wasn't much laid out. The super helpful staff came straight out, apologised for the lack of choice but explained that they weren't sure anyone would be coming for breakfast, so didn't want to waste the food. They offered to make us whatever we wanted, and we ate in the awesome dining room, which we had totally to ourselves!
I would stay here again in a second. The building itself is stunning and the rooms are great. Big Bend (which was about a few hours drive away) was also amazing and well worth a visit. The drive from Alpine is great too, with lots of photo opps.
