A Few Reasons to Choose the Alamo Inn

We are a unique, hybrid business, offering the personal service of a B&B, the privacy of a hotel, and the quiet, comfort, and spaciousness of an apartment suite, at a price that is competitive with local hotels.

Guests may visit for birding maps, directions to hot spots, suggestions, checklists, and more.

Many of our suites are themed! You can stay in the Hummingbird suite, Edinburgh Victorian Scottish suite, Johnson Western Memorabilia suite, Pancho Villa Southwest suite, South African suite, or the Garden suites.
We cater to folks who enjoy reading, providing bookshelves of easy reading and eclectic books in every suite, along with filtered water, electric tea kettle, coffee maker, free WIFI, cable TV, en suite bathroom, choice of kitchenette or full kitchen, and choice of queen, king, or twin-sized beds.
Our facilities are available to all travelers who appreciate our style of accommodation, not just bird watchers!

Our on-premises birding and outdoor store offers an impressive selection of birding books on North America and internationally.

We are dealers for several birding binocular and scope companies and offer an interesting selection of birding-related goods.
There are many birds and butterflies surrounding us! On the north side of the town square is a park just across from our buildings, and the residential area immediately surrounding us to the south has many large trees, both providing good habitat. Consequently, we have recorded over 180 bird species around the inn, including many neo-tropical migrants, and in our garden at 101 S. 7th Place, we have recorded over 100 butterfly species!

Alamo Inn B&B, Gear and Tours is world-famous as a birder destination and regularly hosts birders from every state and over 60 different countries. At any time, there are likely birders here from several states and other countries!

Well known as a clean, stable, and friendly city, Alamo is a safe and welcoming place to stay.
The City of Alamo is officially The Gateway to Santa Ana N.W.R.! The most diverse of the 550 U.S. National Wildlife Refuges, Santa Ana N.W.R. is located only seven miles (12 minutes drive) south of our inn. It has more combined bird and butterfly species than any other U.S. N.W.R., making it a highly sought out destination.
Our central location in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, with over 540 bird species and 330 butterfly species (in our four counties), makes us the ideal base for birders.
The L.R.G.V. birding maps offer some 100 birding hot spots. Our shortlist narrows it down to 32 top hot spots, with over 50% of these top hot spots within a 30-minute drive of our inn and 85% within a 50-minute drive.

We provide birding guides if needed. Please reserve well in advance. We highly recommend them!
