I am so pleased to say what wasn't my first choice became a blessing! This place (at least our tiny room 44) is so clean and updated! I have rarely been in a hotel with new bathroom fixtures, decent furniture, nice TV, comfortable bed, AND it's all clean! What it lacks in space it makes up for with cute, quaint... More

Found Appenzell Inn on Tripadvisor and we were very pleased. Great room, clean, well maintained and very nice staff. Very close to town, but outside the main traffic area. Close to all the shopping areas. We'll definitely come back next time we're in Estes Park.

We spent three nights at the Appenzell Inn with our two grandchildren last week in the patio room. Our room was spotless, equipped with everything we needed and the perfect size for our family. We used the gas grill (which was also clean!) every evening and dined out on our patio. The indoor pool was a hit with the kids.... More

We spent two amazing days in the Estes Park area and we were more than satisfied with our decision to stay at the Appenzell Inn. For the most part I would simply echo the positive reviews already posted as they are very accurate. I just wanted to point out a few positives and negatives from our experience but please know...

What stood out the most at this cute place was the "extras". Breakfast included and enough to feed teenagers! Complimentary fruit, snacks and water. Complimentary washing powder and fabric softener. Close to town with plenty of space in the rooms. I recommend you request a room on the patio side, as the views are amazing! The only minor detail that... More

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review! We know that the little details are very important, such as complimentary laundry soap. We haven't heard the water pressure issue before. However, we will immediately look into it. Thank you for the input! We hope to see you again! More

We saw a sign that noted that Appenzell Inn had a restaurant and pub along with posting their happy hour specials. We decided to give it a try. Boy, are we ever glad we gave it a try. First off, the grounds are quite nice and peaceful. We decided to eat outside on their patio that was next to a... More

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the beautiful Appenzell Inn over the Fourth of July holiday!! As soon as we arrived and walked into our spacious one-bedroom suite my children (9 & 7) actually thanked me out loud- "We love this place, mom- great job!" The room was immaculate, as was the bathroom- complete with a large... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit in June 2016. The staff was super helpful and accommodated us with any request e.g. forgotten toothbrush, the rooms were clean and the overall place is very well maintained. Definitely will stay here on our next trip to Estes Park.

You really can't go wrong with the Appenzell Inn. We came for the 4th of July weekend and booked the big Condo Suite. If you have a family or are looking to book a large suite with multiple people, this suite is worth every penny. The place is HUGE. The full kitchen is gorgeous and fully stocked with everything you... More

My wife and I have traveled somewhat extensively in Germany. We have always enjoyed the small, boutique German hotels with their restaurant. When we walked into our room we looked at each other and said "this is so German." We liked our room and its balcony where we shared a bottle of wine. We ate in the small restaurant/bar (bistro)...
