The room and bathroom were a bit small but everything worked well. There was a bit of street noise. Wifi was good. The price level was rather too high, as typical for the high season here. The pizza place on the other side of the street has good pizza and one can cool feet in the river that just passes... More

Just perfect. Very clean, very friendly. Recently remodeled with nice amenities. Just like my wife and I, you won't be disappointed. Easy walk along Big Thompson River to downtown Estes Park and the shops.

Lovely place to stay close to park entrance. We stayed on the 2nd floor in a spacious room with king sized bed. The pillows and bed were very comfortable. We were meant to stay 2 nights in one room and then move to another room for the 3rd night.Dana went out of her way to arrange that we could stay... More

We stayed here in July / family of 5 in two rooms. The rooms were clean and there were DVDs at the front desk for kids. Location is perfect, walk to town and 5 minutes in car to the Fall River side of RMNP with no traffic. This is better way to enter the park as you can still get... More

Friendly owners and staff, excellent location, breakfast offering perfect for those hitting the trails early. Easy walk to town and decent pizzeria across the street. Bathroom tight but room held four very well. Thank you Dana and Peter for helping make this leg of our trip a memorable one! Steve C

This Inn was very nice and a great location! A few minutes to downtown and close to RMNP! Very clean and recently upgraded by the owners. The bathroom was a little small but not a big issue. WiFi worked well. Dana had a nice continental breakfast out every day. A very nice patio area with hummingbirds to look at and... More

My room was #2 and it was quaint and clean. The bedding was so comfortable with nice blankets. The towels in the place were the nicest, softest, thickest towels I've used in a hotel in a long time. They were so nice that we noticed it, ya know. That's not something I would normally even comment on. The owners do... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in June. We found the location to be perfect, walking distance to downtown Estes Park and a 5 minute drive to Rocky Mtn National Park. The owners were amazing, very friendly, helpful about area questions, always available to their guests. The room was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. There is a nice... More

The best thing about the Maxwell Inn is the wife and husband team who own the Inn. They are extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about restaurants and sights in and around the city of Estes Park. The rooms are clean and comfortable though our room, next to the entrance, was somewhat small and its bathroom was small. Ask for a... More

The Maxwell Inn accommodations surpassed its ** AAA rating in all respects. Our spacious, newly renovated room featured hand crafted wood furniture, soapstone counter top, mini fridge and microwave, a separate sitting area, and 2 leather recliners.. Breakfasts were wholesome and delicious, with Greek yoghurt, fresh fruit, energy bars, cereal, bread/muffins and hard boiled eggs. An easy walking distance to... More
