There should be some good B&B's but I like the Hotel Zugspitz, mainly because it's comfortable and a good location.

It's been a few years, but we stayed at Hotel Eidelweiss (not to be confused with the Eidelweiss Resort, the US Army R&R resort on the base) for about a week. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer, or freer with advice when asked. Lovely small hotel with a very good breakfast.

I second the suggestion for Hotel Zugspitze. We had a room with a double balcony and a great view! Easy walk to restaurants. The hotel also had a nice bar and backyard with lounge chairs.

We loved Hotel Schatten in Partinkirchen and loved their great breakfasts !

Around the corner was our favorite dinner spot for dancing, food, and beer - Werdenfelser Hof.

Great place to take day trips into the Austrian Alps and Southern Bavaria with a car. But you'd need an Austrian vignette sticker.

You need an Austrian Vignette if driving on Austrian highways and autobahn. If just driving a few miles into Austria up in the mountains you will be on minor roads and won't need one. But head down the cliff from Seefeld in Tirol towards Innsbruck and you will do. It is strictly enforced on that stretch of autobahn both by cameras and people.

We found Partenkirchen, adjacent to Garmisch, much prettier with more traditional looking hotels. In fact, we checked out of our nice but sterile hotel in Garmisch to a charming one in Partenkirchen,

In Mittenwald, we stayed at Alpenhotel Rieger which was an easy walk from the train, and it’s located within a block of the cute downtown lane. Be sure to tour the Violin Museum - very interesting info both about the history of violins and the town’s history (and friendly people).

The room was our largest on that trip and the breakfast assortment was huge - may have been some locals stopping in to purchase breakfast, too. We felt like we were staying “at Grandma’s house”.

If you’re getting tired of Bavarian food while in Mittenwald, Ristorante da Mamma Lucia has excellent pizza and salads....and more. It was very popular while we were there.
