Each suite has a unique theme
Our four suites have each been furnished and decorated with a unique historic theme related to the development of the Rio Grande Valley into the rich region we see today. (Every suite has its own private bathroom, refrigerator, coffee maker, tea kettle, telephone, and cable TV. Three suites have separate bedroom and living room, the fourth is a studio floor plan.) To speak to us call (956)782-9912.
Pancho Villa suite
- Decor of the deep south west, including some American Indian and Mexican art items. The suite features historic Pancho Villa photos. Pancho Villa was a revolutionary who ruled large areas of Mexico from 1910 to 1920. He was a folk hero in parts of Mexico and in the Rio Grande Valley for attacking everyone in his way, including briefly invading the United States (in New Mexico), and because with no formal education he rose from peasant and outlaw to commandante. Photos of him today hang on the walls of many Rio Grande Valley homes and businesses both sides of the border.
- Scottish Victorian theme. Scottish immigrants had a big influence in developing the Valley - the capital of Hidalgo County is named Edinburg after Edinburgh, Scotland. This suite celebrates these pioneers with Scottish antique furniture and decor. There are also sub themes of Victorian Fairies and Scottish Heroes (William Wallace, Rob Roy McGregor, Robert the Bruce). Och Aye!
- South west pioneer farmer theme. The early pioneers of the modern Valley were farmers of Mexican and American extraction. They cleared, ploughed, leveled, and irrigated the land using mules, chains, horse drawn ploughs, sweat and determination. We celebrate their era with antiques and artifacts from 1900 to 1940. When Valley old timers tour this suite they invariably say "Oh, we had one of those..." and "I remember that..." and "This is my favorite suite. It's just like home."
South Padre Island suite
- Ocean island theme. Alamo is only an hour from the ocean and South Padre Island, famous for wild Texas Indians, shipwrecks, buried treasure, light houses, birding, fishing... This suite captures the spirit of South Padre Island and transports one to the incredible explorer days with treasure and history maps on the walls, clouds scudding across the ceiling, and butterflies sailing the draperies on a four post bed. (This is the smallest suite, a studio with entrance hall and private bathroom.)
