Highland Motel in Alpine, TX I just wanted to tell the Terlingua area community that we offer a rate of $50.00 per night for Terlingua residents. This price includes tax. My family has roots in the Terlingua area since the 1880’s and consider ourselves part of the Terlingua community. A lady from South County suggested I inform the community that this price was available to them on their travels to Alpine and beyond.

Free concert at the Paisano hotel in Marfa, on Jan 6th. Award winning Nashville artist Gareth Laffely! Hope you all can come. Part of “Their Last Ride” Documentary Film. More info at
