“Loved it!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The Maverick Inn was a wonderful choice for our short stay in the Alpine area. Phone contact prior to arrival was so positive and helpful. Upon arrival, we were treated like dear friends. We got to stay in Room #10 which has just recently been added. They renovated an old storage area to create the room--beautiful hardwood floors (original), doors opening to a private patio, rustic/southwestern type finishes comfortable bed, good ac, and tv, internet, fridge, microvave. Just a great room. Additionally, they make the kitchen available to guests at all times--not just breakfast. Great continental breakfast is served daily with lots of choices. The manager is so personable and welcoming. Every need of guests is accommodated. We loved this hotel! We will definitely choose is again if we are in the Alpine area. It is NOT a cookie-cutter place, but a refreshing, unique facility. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room #10 is a delight--as I am sure they all are.

If you need to be in or travel through Alpine, the Maverick Inn is a comfortable, nice place to stay. The room was spacious and clean with pretty comfortable bed. The location is just outside of town across from the Sul Ross University which is very nice. The pool was not working when we were there. Breakfast is a generous continental with yogurt, cereals, juices, baked goods, coffee, tea.

Woody,
Tank you very much for your review and kind comments(it means a great deal from a Senior Reviewer). Just to let you know, I have corrected the challenges we encountered on the pool and it is filling as I write this(although still closed for the season). Please I hope you'll pass our way again and I'll have that pool pristine! Mark

It was a fun, exciting one night stay. The Maverick Inn was fantastic and the lovely friendly staff was helpful in so many ways. Rooms were clean with an ol rustic western charm. I loved it. Will definately be back again.

Spent one night at the Maverick and my wife and I really enjoyed the inn and friendly staff. The entire inn is decorated in rustic, cowboy paraphernalia which goes well with the location. The complimentary breakfast is filling and sitting outside in the veranda is quite relaxing and peaceful.

If the mood strikes, there is a horseshoe pit and bbq grill in backyard of the reception area.

Room Tip: Check out the antique RV that is located to the right of the reception building - open to guests to...

We found the personal at this hotel to be Texas friendly which means they were very friendly and accommodating. The place was clean and furnished tastefully in a cozy Texas style. The hotel is across from Sul Ross University as one enters Alpine. The room had 2 queensize beds that were positioned in a way that allowed a great deal of privacy. A drawback was that the TV could not be
seen from both beds. It did not bother us. Another thing that did not bother us was that the hotel was on the main road leading out of town and a railroad track was close . Four trains passed by during the night . My friend heard the trains but it did not bother her. I did not hear the trains because I sleep like a stone. The hotel did supply several sets of ear plugs.
The continental breakfast was ok but limited. We were told the baked goods were locally baked but we were not impressed especially since Tx food is normally outstanding.
I am recommending this hotel to other travellers.

Room Tip: Check pictures on the hotel's website.

We checked into the Maverick Inn and were warmly greeted by Manager, Mark and front desk staff member, Deby. The Maverick is cozy, charming, immaculate and pets are given special attention. Free WIFI, parking, continental breakfast, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker in room and a prime location on the main street in town!

No pet fee—but you will be responsible for any damage. Lots of grassy areas for furry guests to enjoy and the charming outdoor patio off the breakfast area is also pet friendly.

We were given complimentary drink tickets to the historic Holland hotel-located minutes away (the sister hotel to the Maverick). Alpine is fun to explore-a few good restaurants, funky vintage and thrift stores and only 30 minutes from Marfa.

What a wonderful relaxing stay we had at the Maverick Inn over Labor Day weekend.The staff was so warm, friendly and very helpful when trying to find places to eat, things to do and things not to do! They even made calls ahead for us to get details etc. Our stay could not have been better, from the soft comfortable beds and lienens to the well anointed Baths and "mini Kitchen/bar" in our room. We laughed at the ear plugs, took us a while to figure that one out, who told them I snored? The trains seemed to lull us not disturb us. The morning breakfast, delicious and filling was so enjoyable each day on a pleasant side patio with the "Cowboy Madonna" watching over us, well let's just say I light a candel for us all ,gals! Couldn't hurt??. So do I plan to come back? You bet I do! Planning my next trip already. Oh and don't miss the Marfa Lights they are truly a mystery and wonder of this world. Well worth the drive.

Room Tip: Spring for the larger suites, you will be glad you did some with own patios.
