Looking for a nice romantic night away with the wifey without breaking the bank I stumbled on to the Appenzell Inn. It's not the fanciest or biggest hotel but has nice reasonable rooms. It has decent sized indoor pool with small outdoor hot tub. They provide towels. The other thing I liked was a nice BBQ area with tables for...

We've been to Estes in the summer but never in the winter. This was a very fun trip. The hotel was very nice and staff was very helpful. Continental breakfast wasn't anything special but was just fine. The room was very clean and well stocked. We stayed in the Grindle room. The boys had fun in the pool and we...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Estes Park is definitely much quieter in the winter time. It is a nice time of the year to visit!

I stayed here with my boyfriend, and it was absolutely perfect! The staff was amazing, and made sure we were comfortable. We come to Estes quite often (3-4 times a year) and have stayed at a lot of places there... this place is honestly the best place in Estes. They had snacks offered in the evenings (popcorn, granola bars, crackers...

It's a pleasant, quiet hotel tucked away in the mountains. The rooms were very well insulated for the winter. And the fireplace was a nice touch when it got really cold. The breakfast was adequate and the staff was friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean and comfortable after our hike up Long's Peak. We were exhausted. The restaurant was amazing. Convenient to Estes Park. Rocky Mountain. Will definitely consider this place when we return. Cheers.

The staff was fantastic and so was the restaurant. Everyone was very pleasant and we even stayed an extra day because of it. Hotel seemed a bit pricey but it was worth it! The rooms are spacious and had great accommodations. Very clean and beautiful. We loved sitting on the balcony looking at the mountains!

Having stayed here 3 other times, we expected a romantic loft room with a fantastic view of the mountains. We last stayed in that type of room a few years back. Unfortunately, they made small 2 room suites from what was the office building and quarters, but named them confusingly the same on the internet; thus we got a divided,...

You booked your room online, on our website. The old owners named the room types at our inn over 10 years ago. The room type you stayed in during this visit was actually built and named years before the other room type. We have looked into changing the suite heart rooms into more clear names. We have Suite Heart Loft,...
