We stayed at the Appenzell Inn about 10 years ago and it was spectacular. We had a suite with a jacuzzi tub and the room was beautiful. Fast forward 10 years - the rooms and upkeep have fallen short. The room needed a good cleaning from carpets to walls. I was skeptical and decided against soaking in the tub this...

We really enjoyed the Inn...the people were nice and the room was well appointed and very clean and comfortable. We loved having a kitchenette and the spa tub was glorious! Our only reasons for not a 5 star: breakfast was only breads/cereal-we can't have gluten or dairy-and the noise outside was loud when other guests came by (we were right...

We stayed in the Chalet Suite. It was beautiful, comfortable, quiet, clean, and cozy! Excellent staff! Both the front desk and the cleaning staff were very friendly and always helpful. I was disappointed at first because the pull-out couch mattress was badly stained, but I called the front desk and within 5 minutes they delivered a mattress that looked brand...

It was spotless clean and exactly what we expected. Quiet place to stay. Very easy access to downtown and the RMNP. Breakfast was not much to choose from. But enjoyed the free bottled water and snacks daily. Would stay here again.

The staff was very friendly upon our arrival. The room was clean, but not quite the way it was explained in some other reviews. The bed was super hard. Both of our backs were killing us the two mornings after we slept on it. The mattress was as hard as the floor. Also, this room is not for people who...

I wasn't sure about this roadside inn, but it was better than expected. The front desk staff were very kind and professional. When we arrived, the attendant made dining recommendations and made us a reservation at the Dunraven. Great suggestion. The Sweetheart studio was actually a large, open, airy room with a view, and a heart-shaped tub in the room....

My wife and I recently stayed in the Grindel Suites and we had a great time! We really loved the cozy feel of the property as soon as we drove in, the landscaping does wonderfully to impart the feeling of mountain isolation. The room was fantastically clean as was the in-room jacuzzi tub, something my wife was slightly nervous about....

We stayed at this quirky hotel last week which was reminiscent of a European alpine lodge. The lobby was located in the middle of the first building and the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Johnny. The layout was initially confusing. From the lobby, we had to go up an elevator or stairs to get to the "ground floor" of...
