We chose this resort for its location, as we had a car and felt it was convenient for day trips in the area. There was a different bus tour offered each day. We felt they were too expensive--especially since we had rented a car. We did take the Sunday afternoon walking tour of Oberstaufen. She pointed out grocery stores, restaurants, and an ice cream shop, where most of us to chose to end our tour.
Our unit was a small one-bedroom. I think we had one of the least desirable units, as it was in the last building and faced into a hillside. Most units had a pretty balcony with flowers, but the ones our side of the building were metal with no flowers or view.
The unit said it was suitable for two persons, and more would have been in the way. The living room had a sofa and chair with the dining table at the far end. The table had four chairs, but only three would fit. A TV and microwave were on the shelves beside the table.
There was a partial kitchen along one wall with a two-burner stove, small refrigerator, and a sink. Sufficient cookware and dishes enabled us to cook a number of meals.
The bathroom was not connected to the bedroom and opened off the living area. It had a shower, sink, and toilet. From time to time I smelled mildew, but never saw any. We left the fan running after we showered.
The bedroom was fairly large with ample closet space. It had two twin beds made up with a bottom sheet, a comforter, and pillow.
There was heat, and we had to use that a couple of nights, as it was unusually cool the week we were there.
The staff was friendly and helpful. There was always someone available at the desk who spoke English.
FYI: There is a 2.50 Euro per person per day tourist tax, levied, I believe, by the town. We didn't seem to receive any benefits from it.

They have tours available that you can sign up for, and weekly parties for you to mingle with people. We were "stuck" there for another week after the 9/11 attacks, but we felt very safe and very welcome at this place.
I would highly recommend it to anyone!

We participated on an organized hike through the resort and met many wonderful German people staying at the resort. We hiked into Austria and had lunch at a gasthaus in Austria. My husband and I were forming our order in German when the waitress said, "English would be better actually" in an Irish accent. She counted up the order in a mix of English and German. Most of the people from West Germany spoke English, but there were many visitors from Eastern Germany who did not.
It was fun to try to use our decades old German on occasion. At the bierstube, Heinz, the music man, sat us with a couple from Berlin with limited English. We sat together all night and got by with our limited German and their limited English. The other gentleman and I loved singing, so we sang a lot of the German folk songs (I didn't know the words but sang harmony anyway) with Heinz. My husband and the woman from Berlin, as well as the other non-singers in the bar were all given rythym intruments or bells to play. We had a wonderful, fun evening.
