The town of Mammoth Lakes recently erected large portal signs on the main road entering town. As you leave, a quote from John Muir can be seen. It says, "Going to the mountains is going home." This stuck me as how I felt after a four day stay at the Alpenhof. When I am staying there, I feel home.
Robert and Kirk always make me and my family feel like an extended part of their family when I am staying with them. Even when it has been a few months between stays, their warm, welcoming manner makes it seem like I had never left. I can't think of another hotel I have ever stayed at where this is the case. The Alpenhof is truly a special place.
Even if it is your first time, there are plenty of reasons to like the place. Across the street is a gondola that takes you to the Canyon Lodge of Mammoth Mountain. The nicest shops and restaurants are across the street. I didn't move my car the entire time I was there! It was still covered in snow we got the first day I checked in when I left.
The rooms are clean and nice. The beds are comfortable and the room I stayed in this time even had a nice comfy chair that I finished a great book in. The morning breakfast is a very nice surprise with beautiful pastries, fruit and shelled hard boiled eggs. Very cool.
I started staying at the Alpenhof because it is above the best bar in Mammoth - the Clocktower Cellar. But over the years, I can't say which one I like more.
