My father and I always come back to this place every time we visit Estes Park.
The rooms are spacious and always very clean. The owners are very nice and we always enjoy a drink in their pub, now a restaurant.
Estes Park is somewhat spendy during the tourist season, but the Appenzell Inn keeps its prices at a decent and fair rate all year round.
I highly recommend a visit to Estes Park and a stay at the Appenzell Inn.

Delicious! Delicious! Delicious! My boyfriend and I stopped in for dinner and were blown away by the food. They had a variety of cheese plates to choose from. For dinner, I had the NY strip medium rare; it was seasoned & cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the Elk Jalepeno Cheddar bratwurst sandwich. I had a bite; it was juicy and spicy. To finish, we split a creme brulee which was amazing. Atmosphere was cozy with a great soundtrack!

Wonderful place to stay. Truly helpful staff. Great pool. We stayed in a suite with very well equipped kitchenette.  Nice walk to downtown on pedestrian friendly path. Food was divine. Our waiter was a cheese genius and custom made a delightful cheese plate for us to take back up to our room. Also has good soup, fresh fish, and great kraut and brat plate. Good wine and beer selections as well. Wish we were staying for a week! Would absolutely come back!!

Stayed for two nights during high tourist season weekend in a patio level room with full kitchen. The room and extra bed (a convertible futon) were comfortable for our family of four. We always look for a kitchen while on vacation because our kids can be very picky eaters and it is much cheaper to cook them a meal. The room seemed updated and was well maintained.

The pool is indoors and was great for our kids to cool off after each day of hikes and activities around the mountains. It is in a separate building, but a pair of flip flops is all it takes to get there, and towels are provided in the pool house. We were very happy with that. One of our children also spent some time in the outdoor hot tub.

What is really the best part is the service; the staff was awesome, especially the young man behind the desk during the afternoon/early evening shift. I saw him helping a family in the pool house who asked about local attractions, and he helped us with extra blankets and coffee for our room.

The continental breakfast is a nice touch - coffee and juice, toast, hard boiled eggs, apples and bananas, and a few other items. There is also a basket of granola bars and Ritz peanut butter crackers in the lobby, which is convenient to grab on the way to a hike or trip to RMNP.

There is a paved trail which goes to downtown about a half-mile away, and a free Estes Park shuttle that drops off right next door, if you want to leave your car in the lot to visit downtown.

The only reason I took off one star is because the hot water in the shower was only warm. It seemed okay since we were staying in the summer, but if we had come back from a day of hiking in colder weather, I think a hot shower really would have been missed.

Overall, I highly recommend staying at the Appenzell Inn. It's a nice place to stay with good features and a convenient location to RMNP and Estes Park attractions.

We stayed for one night in a room looking out over the mountains. Amazing view! The hotel was in wonderful condition. Room was clean and included a full kitchenette.
We also dined at the pub on site, what a wonderful surprise! Totally thought it was going to be a little funky burger place, but it the food was very unique and soooooo good! We had the trout, chicken, cheese and meat appetizer, cheese fondue plate, and the chocolate cake! All amazing! Wish we could have stayed in town a second night to just eat there again!

It would probably make sense for this stub to be split into two, one for the hotel and for the restaurant. In any case, I can't speak for the hotel other than to say it looked pretty and well-kept from a passerby perspective.

The Appenzell Pub brings a lot of European features to Estes Park. Rather annoyingly, this includes the sort of disinterested air one associates with the waitstaff of a number of European fine dining establishments. It wasn't slow or bad, per se, but it was not particularly attentive.

However, I am willing to overlook this feature because Appenzell's food is outstanding, rivaling the best food I had in town. One of the best plates of food I had during my entire trip to Colorado was the arugula-beet salad here...I didn't actually order it and just had a few bites of my dad's, and I kick myself for not getting my own. Actually, my dad made better decisions than me in general, as his entree (the buffalo bratwurst) was a bit more flavorful than my veal-based brat, although both brats were top-of-the-line.

Given its Swiss theme, Appenzell tries to balance both German-style and Italian-style cuisine. We sampled items in both camps, and I think Appenzell does the German stuff just a bit better. We had a mushroom risotto which was still very good, but we agreed it was a bit underseasoned for our taste.

Still, big bold flavors from everything else...this place definitely merits a return.

This is absolutely, bar none our new favorite place in Estes Park.   Reasonable rates, spotless and really charming rooms.   The staff is always so nice and pleasant and glad that we are there.   We sleep really well, and truly enjoy every aspect of this gem.  

Another great thing - it is off the main drag, so you don't have to deal with the downtown traffic and shenanigans.    It is tucked away, surrounded by trees, and great views.

I can't recommend it enough.   Great job Appenzell!
