First review ever, but our stay at Appenzell Inn was so incredible that we had to tell someone -- anyone. The moment we entered the suite we felt comfortable and at home. The big surprise was the quality of construction, the amenities provided -- all top of the line -- right down to an amazing hairdryer. What is harder to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, the third week in Oct. The location was excellent, near all the things that you might want to do in Estes Park. Also, for Estes Park, we felt the price was reasonable for the quality of the accommodations. The room was very comfortable and did not feel like a "typical" hotel room. It felt... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our property! We are currently looking at ways to improve our breakfast in the future.

Spent two nights in the studio loft. Great views and a nice room with a fireplace and hot tub. Bed was comfortable and staff was super friendly. The entire hotel was clean. Only negative about the hotel - and its minor - was that they were staining the outside walkways during our stay and the fumes were a little annoying.... More

Thanks for your kind words regarding your stay with us! Sorry for the inconvenience of the staining of our deck. We try to get a lot of our renovations done during the slower months, but that is no excuse for that affecting your stay. Our apologies!
