I had a disappointing experience. I had to change rooms twice because something in both rooms didn't work (lights, fireplace, then it was the smoke detector beeping every 30 seconds). The staff here is friendly and upgraded my room for the inconvenience. I liked my new room, but the heater made a loud grinding sound whenever it was on. Annoying!... More

Surprised at how nice it was for the price! Beautiful room with kitchenette, fireplace, and a jetted heart-shape tub! Very romantic, clean, and cozy - exactly as another reviewer commented! Would love to visit again!

Husband and I stayed for the second time at this hotel. The rooms are fantastic. It feels like home. The staff are friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us while the heat was out. They brought us a space heater and offered to move us to another room on the second night. Not a problem though because... More

We enjoyed our stay at Appenzell very much. It was romantic, clean, and cozy. The hotel staff person was super friendly, informative, and very helpful. We hope to book another stay in the summertime as to enjoy more outdoor activities

Stay on the top floor for a breathtaking view. The room was wonderful and romantic with the fireplace. I highly recommend the Appenzell Inn. This was a bargain in price as well and was very convenient to get to town.

We appreciate your kind words! We strive really hard to give our guests a quality stay, at a price that won't break the bank. It's hard to not have a good view in Estes Park, but our Suite Heart Loft Studios are pretty hard to beat! We're glad that you enjoyed yourself, and hopefully we will see you again soon! More

We stayed at the Appenzell in for a romantic weekend getaway. For the most part, this was a wonderful choice for a hotel! The website needs quite a bit of work, not enough information on there. There is free continental breakfast, which we passed on. We wanted a hot breakfast and I am gluten free. We stayed in the sweetheart... More

Very pleased with our room cute,clean and quiet, at a good rate, and staff was very friendly. Breakfast was so so and a little on the late side for us since we are early risers...but hey it's a free breakfast.

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
