Thanks to Keith and company for a wonderful 3-night stay, and wish it had been longer. Very comfortable, quiet, and spacious 2nd floor Hummingbird Suite for 3 adults -- the only surprise was that none of the windows are openable. Extremely convenient and substantive breakfast and lunch items (at a modest additional cost per meal), which were perfect for long...

This quaint little inn has everything you need, in a great central location for a great price. There is food available at all times if needed in the kitchen area. I been back multiple times and would highly recommend to all responsible visitors.

Using the many excellent reviews on Tripadvisor.com I booked a week for my group coming from Phoenix, AZ. We were not disappointed--in the marvelous accommodations, or the warm hospitality, or the knowledge and abilities of the owner and his staff. And that's not saying anything about the great birds to be found in this part of the country! The city...

Once again, the Alamo Inn has proven to be the best base for birders visiting the Rio Grande Valley. No other lodging facility in the region caters so well to birders, with an excellent store, custom breakfast and lunch options, very spacious and comfortable rooms, and superb hospitality.

We booked for 3 nights but stayed for five. the rooms are clean and roomy. More like apartments. We are not birders, but were open minded and wound up learning a lot and went to several wildlife refuges in the area. The price is right the people are nice.

You could not ask for a more welcoming place in the Rio Grande valley. Our suite was clean, comfortable and spacious. There was a good selection for the optional breakfast and packed lunch. The location was is great for visiting many of the best birding sites in the valley. Finally, Keith and his staff could not have been more helpful...

There's no better place in the Rio Grande Valley to stay than the Alama Inn. Its suites are huge. The one I stayed in for $52 a night had a fully equipped kitchen and a living room and TV as big as mine at home. It's quiet. I hardly heard a noise the entire time I was there, although I...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Alamo Inn. Our suite was comfortable and convenient. If you opted to use the food service, there was a good selection of breakfast and lunch items. There was also a laundry available for guests. And Keith gave us excellent advice about where to go to see interesting birds.

This has been our second birding trip to the Rio Grande Valley and did not hesitate in returning to the delightful Alamo Inn. Keith and his wife Audrey are probably one of the most delightful couples you could ever meet. The rooms are perfect for a birding trip as there is everything you could wish for. The on site laundry...
