My wife and I stayed here to attend a concert in Rockford (we drove out from Chicago). I chose this inn carefully, based on the reviews on TripAdvisor and on the price/location. This inn was a decent value for the price we paid - it was clean, the front counter staff was helpful, and it is conveniently located on State St. We didn't really need many amenities, since we were only staying one night. All in all, if you're a value shopper, this might be a good place for you.

A few things to note - not to be overly picky about things, but we travel often and usually rely heavily on TripAdvisor to advise us on hotels in unknown towns:
- Everything is pretty outdated, including the bathroom, the shower tile, the shower tub/basin, and the furniture.
- The room has the bare-bones basics of toiletries and amenties (i.e., don't expect to see fancy shampoos, soaps, a shower cap, and a blow dryer if that's what you're used to). Again, we didn't need much, but I thought it worth noting.
- There is something strange with the TV remote and the heater. Pushing the up button on the TV remote control also turned on/off the heater. In the middle of the night, as I was still watching TV, I accidentally turned off the heater. My wife and I awoke in the middle of the night freezing.

The hotel is conveniently located to a ton of stuff in the area - restaurants, a CVS, bars, etc. So, again, good value for the money.

Room Tip: Not sure....

What a nice Inn. 2 large bedrooms and front room, kitchen. It was so quit. You have a very nice place that we hope to be able to come and stay at again. I would recommend this to anyone. The employee were so nice. The Inn was clean. Nice breakfast area. They do a few extra things to make you feel at home.

Room Tip: This is like a mini apartment at the top of the Inn. It is so neat.

This hotel might be small but it is big on value and service! The staff is super friendly and helpful and the maids are also very helpful and cordial. We really enjoyed the very clean and tidy rooms and locations is just prefect for visiting this busy little city. We would stay here again and again!

We selected the Alpine Inn based on TripAdvisor reviews. For the price, it was much better than the other three Rockford motels at which we've stayed in the past. Little things keep it from getting a top rating. It's obvious that money and effort have been spent upgrading an older business, e.g. the tile and granite in the bathroom, but the no-skid adhesive strips in the tub made it look very dirty. Check-in was prompt and courteous. The lobby and breakfast areas were clean and attractive; however, the "24-hour" coffee was almost all gone and there were no lids. The desk clerk very nicely replaced the TV remote that didn't work and wrote out instructions on programming another one, but it didn't work either so it must have been the TV. There was no clock in the room so we had to rely on our cell phones. There was no soap. The mattresses seemed clean enough but they had definitely seen a better day -- too soft and lumpy. The Alpine is all on one floor with exterior doors. Even though it is on a very busy street, we didn't notice any traffic noise. It was disconcerting, however, when we got out of our car and noticed that almost all of the steel entrance doors had dented spots as though someone had pounded on them to get in.

Thank you very much for this fair review. This hotel has been around since 1958 which has its positive points (concrete walls which is why you can’t hear the busy street) and its challenging points. The good thing is that the current owners care deeply about making constant improvements, on the other hand they have had a lot of work to do to get to where we are today. Aside from major capital improvements made, we began with the tile, granite, carpet, lighting, painting/wall-paper, and furniture updates, and while we are continually updating these areas all rooms were finished in 2010. Still there are always items that need constant updating such as the tubs and doors. We have to bring a room down for 3 days to refinish a tub and we complete several of these each month though with 114 rooms it is still a work in progress. We have also begun replacing the doors this year as well. There is absolutely no excuse for the lack of soap in your room and I will be sure and go over the cleaning/stocking checklist with the housekeeper who was responsible for your room- we are very sorry about that! We hope the Front Desk staff was able to resolve this for you, and should you choose to visit us again grab an alarm clock from them as well as we do keep them at the Front Desk. Your review has honestly helped us to improve and we truly appreciate it! Hope to see you again soon- Thank you!
