The Maxwell Inn was a great place to stay in our first trip to RMNP. It is such a quaint hotel that is so nicely kept. We always say that all we need when on this type of vacation is a bed to sleep in. The rooms were updated and clean and provided all that we needed for our stay... More

You can't beat this one. The rooms were clean and neat. Everything was decorated "lodge like" and designed very well. Perhaps one of the strongest points was their front desk "help". The owner is the front desk help and the owner and her husband are first class in every way. They even gave me some car cleaner and clean rag... More

My husband and I, with our 14 year old son, recently spent 4 nights at The Maxwell Inn & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners provided excellent recommendations for places to eat, trails to hike in RMNP, and info on riding stables. The inn was clean, and you couldn't beat the location with less than a ten minute walk (along... More

The hubby and I recently stayed for a quick overnight to get out of the city for a bit. We've been to several hotels in Estes and this is the best yet. Comfortable room, great decor and furniture, and seriously one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in. Can't beat the location, it is so much easier to walk... More

This hotel was in a great location located in walking distance from the main shopping area of the town. The owner is so friendly, and you can really tell that her and her husband love this business like their own baby. The room was extremely clean, and the continental breakfast was perfect!

Driving through Estes Park, decided to stay at the last minute. The Maxwell is a perfect location to walk into town. The owners were fantastic. Clean room, fair price, great breakfast. Will come back again!

We were on our way to arches and had planned one night stay at Maxwell Inn in May 2015. Unfortunately, the weather turned sour and on the time our arrival there was a heavy storm in Rocky's. We realized that we wouldn't be able to do anything in estes park and even getting there would be a huge risk to... More

The Maxwell Inn is just the spot to stay when visiting the RMNP. We are hikers and the breakfast with hard boiled eggs, Greek yogurt, toast, orange juice, great coffee, energy bars, oatmeal, cereal and muffins held us over till late afternoon when we returned to Estes Park. We figured this saved us 20 dollars a day. Fast WiFi and... More

We stayed at the end of May in room 21 and were very pleased. The room was spotless, shower and ac worked great. The room had recently been remodeled. Bed/bedding very comfortable. Breakfast had so many choices. There must've been 10 types of tea! Parked right in front. Lovely walk into town. A short drive to the park entrance. The... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Maxwell Inn during our visit to RMNP. Dana was very welcoming and accommodating to our photography schedule at the park. The inn was very conveniently located. We were able to access both park entrances with no troubles. Better yet, we were able to walk the nice sidewalk trail along the river to dinner... More
