Stopped over for the night so we weren't looking for anything fancy, but I really expected more based on others' reviews. Alpine Inn came through where it counts, especially at a budget rate: the room and bathroom were clean and the bed was comfortable.
-- Continental breakfast was subpar. Defrosted bagels, donuts, muffins, and cereal. Not bad enough that we skipped it, but not great.
-- Shower was extremely narrow and the spigot was mounted too close to the wall, so it really felt like you were showering in a tight spot.
-- Room was strangely arranged, king bed with a TV over in the corner that really couldn't be easily viewed from the bed.
-- Location is a tad inconvenient for an overnight stop. It's about 4 miles off the interstate. Not a huge deal for us, and worth saving some money.
-- We had a hard time getting service at the front desk when we arrived just before 11 pm. Front door was locked. Tried the doorbell to no avail. Finally called and let the phone ring for a few mins and finally she appeared to buzz open the door. No apology, just an explanation of "laundry duty." But it was a long enough ordeal that if we didn't have a reservation, we would have moved on.
-- Doors open right on to parking lot.
-- Dated, sparse decor and furnishings.
But for one night's sleep, it was fine.
