Loved the quaint setting. Girls loved fire pit in back. Beds comfy and the Eigner suite was SO spacious, clean and nicely decoratIi. Had large shared deck by our rooms with tables and grills with nice view towards Rockies. We'll be back for family reunion! I also second the comments from "merrychristmas" below about great customer service. Especially Nick. Our... More

When we arrived, we were given a copy of the restaurant menu, a map of Estes, and when we asked for suggestions of "must dos" in Estes Park, we were given suggestions. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Our Jacuzzi tub was a bonus after hiking all day! The food in the restaurant was very good and the staff... More

This was our second stay at the Inn with our son and his finance. Last year we stayed in the Grindal suites; this year we rented the smaller guest rooms. Both were fine. The suites are more spacious and luxurious and open to a lovely terrace and view. The Guest Rooms were smaller but well designed with a custom built... More

We stayed with my family (6 total) in the 2 BR, full kitchen condo. The unit was HUGE with many nice upgrades. Large kitchen and living room space. Plenty of closet and cabinet space. Many dishes and cooking utensils provided. Housekeeping kept it sparkling. Futons for kid sleeping. Beautiful view of the mountains from the deck. Comfortable beds. Cold water... More

We recently stayed for 5 nights. We had one of the suites in the building with the restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable, although it could use an update of the carpet and decor. The suite was spacious, with a separate bedroom and living room area (which had a pull-out sofa) there was a fully-stocked kitchenette and nice bench-style... More

Thanks for your recent review! Glad you had a nice time here at Appenzell! We are always trying to improve the property. We have a limited amount of down time to do these improvements, so we tackle them as we can:-) The restaurant is good quality compared to other restaurants in town.

The Appenzell Inn itself is a nice walk to downtown as well as a supermarket across the street. Regards to management, I had several inconveniences in my room, major one being my phone did not work, so I would have to go downstairs to use the desk phone. Front desk people knew it didn't work. On a $129.00 plus a... More

Thank you for your input. You had booked one of our smaller, economical rooms. Upon arrival, you asked to check in hours early. It wasn't our busy season yet, so we offered to upgrade you rooms at no additional cost so that you could check-in early, with no fees attached. Before check out, you gave us an entire list of...

We appreciate you taking the time to give us some feedback! We are also glad to hear that you had a nice stay with us. We have been working on the wi-fi issue as well, but with the frequent thunderstorms in the area this summer so far, some of our issues have been weather-based. Thanks again, and come see us...

We were put into room 2: a lovely quiet and private room separate from the main part of the hotel rooms. The bathroom was fabulous, large garden tub with jets. The room was large and comfortable. The lighting, however, needs improvement: impossible to read in the sitting area due to poor lighting. The kitchenette was lovely, enabling us to have... More

We spent the 4th of July at the Inn and had a great time. We were directed to the perfect place to view the great fireworks show. The staff was very courteous and helpful, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant on site, while small, was nice and the staff were great with room service.

We had some great views for the fireworks show up here at Lake Estes, including off our restaurant patio. It was a sight to remember! Really glad that you were here to enjoy it with us and that we made your stay pleasant. Come see us again! More
