Just a one night stopover between Death Valley & Yosemite for the Alpenhof. After a pleasant 4 hour drive we arrive at the Alpenhof, parking was plentiful and free (you put a tag on your mirror in the car). Check in was easy and we even got an extra Suitcase Stand.We were in room number 102 and the short walk was not a problem despite having stairs. The room itself was comfy and very clean with a King Sized bed and once again the fridge was a much welcome sight. As we had eaten lunch in Lone Pine all we fancied was some bar food and so downstairs to the Clocktower Cellar Pub. It was early evening and the bar was fairly empty and we get talking to the barman who is very knowledgeable and passionate about his drinks, he tells us the difference between Bourbon, Rye and the Great Scottish and Irish whiskies.
We ended up trying and buying a few and also the local stout beer was good as was the cocktail he made from a recipe we googled in the bar. We just shared a plate of Chicken and potato balls but this was enough before we played some games of pool and table football. When we left the bar had got very busy, so go early to check out the spirits. In the morning you do get a Continental breakfast (which was more than adequate) but we had to eat at the bar as all the tables were full.
The only real negative came upon check out when the young lady on reception really couldn't care less!!!!
