I've stayed at the Alpiner a few times. It does not have all the amenities of the big name lodges in town but it makes up by being right in the heart of downtown, walking distance to lots of bars, restaurants, shopping and the river.
We pulled in to get a room. The outside was shabby, needing a paint job. The office door was locked, until some guy opened it and asked what I wanted. What would one expect I wanted? It looked dirty inside and I walked away. I would recommend you STAY AWAY!
