New for 2011, Holiday Inn Express Alpine features free hot breakfast, a good sized indoor pool, a fitness center, a microwave & refrigerator in all rooms, and facilities for meetings & business. The hotel enjoys quiet, country surroundings, along US 67/90 on the east side of town, a short walk from Sul Ross State University. There is one restaurant close by; others can be found between 1 and 2 miles away in the center. The lack of much development in the vicinity means that all rooms have long distance views towards distant mountains. The main attraction in this part of Texas is Big Bend National Park
, 70 miles south along US 385.
