“Great Place, Even Better Staff!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Mark is awesome... can't get more Texas friendly than Mr. Mark. On our first evening there, we were invited to enjoy burgers and a cookout for their "private" celebration for an employee. A minor door-lock issue was easily squashed with great hospitality. The Maverick Inn served as a great launching point for our hiking in Ft. Davis, the Observatory, Marfa lights and of course Big Bend. The office is very welcoming and has a comfortable and inviting lodge feel... we found our kids (5-9 yrs) in there one morning sitting on the couches having a conversation (strange). The kitchen is come-and-go for breakfast with fully stocked fridge of juices, water, milk, bagels, english muffins, breads, butter, etc. The cupboards are stocked with coffees, tea, jellies, peanut butter, etc. Have it your way! We stayed in Room #11 right by the office. It has a small courtyard that the kids also enjoyed... room was very accommodating, comfortable, plenty of room, updated and clean. The bathroom and shower are also very large and clean. We would definitely stay here again.

Tim,
Wow! That may be may be the highest compliment I receive in 2012, I'm honored and humbled. Thank You! Of course the real honor goes to that GREAT staff in your review title, they are the ones that making managing such a pleasure. Your kids were awesome, I can't remember a time that I have seen that age children have a more relaxed and all around fun time, it was a pleasure to have the family here and getting to know y'all. Your stay was a blessing to us, thank you! Mark

First time to Big Bend and stayed 2 nights at the Maverick Inn in Alpine. Great central location to visit all the surrounding towns and park. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are large clean and have a great rustic feel with all the comforts of home. Our family of 4 stayed in room 31 which was great with a King and Queen bed. I am sure every room is equally as nice. Park right in front of your room and relax.

We will be back on our next trip to Big Bend!!!!

Room Tip: Room 31 was awesome for a family. Huge room with a King and Queen bed.

We had the best time! It was such a fun, darling place to stay. Clean, comfortable bed, wonderful bath and WIFI and Cool AC. The Pool was kept so clean and everything was cutely decorated. The lobby area was welcoming and the kitchen was so perfect. We were told to come in and raid the fridge or grab a bite whenever we wanted. There were bagels and homemade granola that was out of this world! The garden was inviting and the people so nice.
Thank you for a wonderful experience and great sleep. Wish we could have stayed longer

We had to come to Alpine due to sick family member without a lot of advance notice and we were lucky to get a night booked here and did we LOVE this place. The attention to keeping the history and charm is very obvious, the SW decor was spot on, the staff was very nice, the DEEP pool and just being unique. Thanks for the great night here on a "tough" weekend, this really was a bright spot!

Went to the 1st ever Viva Big Bend Festival and stayed at the Maverick Inn. Very attractive from the drive in to the drive out. Friendly folks, loved the access to coffee and snacks in the lobby/kitchen. The granola was homemade and great and you can buy some to take home!
The room decor was lovely and very fitting.
I would stay there again, in fact, plan to.....

We really enjoyed our stay at The Maverick Inn. From inquiry to check out, the staff were exceptionally kind and accommodating. We had a king suite with a garden tub. The room was very clean with southwestern decor. There were a few little quirks, but these quirks were overshadowed by the many other wonderful things about it. One of the two nights we stayed there, a nearby train woke us... however, earplugs were in the room warning us of this and we just didn't heed the advice. If we had put the earplugs in, it wouldn't have been an issue! Overall this was a relaxing and enjoyable stay for us!

We stayed at the Maverick while in Alpine and Marfa for the first #VivaBigBend Festival. We had a great experience! The staff was very friendly and our room was just lovely. We really enjoyed having the comforts of a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeepot in the room. It was also beautifully decorated in a southwest/Mexican style that really fit with the atmosphere of the region.

The Maverick had an open homey kitchen where they set out locally made muffins and other breakfast stuff each morning. They even left it available to guests all day long, so you could get your breakfast no matter what time you woke up.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I really hope we get to stay there again next year when we come back for the #VivaBigBend Music Festival!

We are so glad that you had a great time here. Alpine certainly does love their festivals and "Viva Big Bend" went the extra mile. We are very fortunate to have fun loving folks such as yourselves choosing to stay at The Maverick. Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. It is very much appreciated.
