I had no idea how lucky my wife and I were to find this place for a quick in and out for a destination wedding. There were obviously fancier facilities in more picturesque locations, but the combination we get at the Maxwell Inn makes it a winner hands down. Start with owner Dana who was incredibly charming, helpful, and gracious... More

Here's what we liked about the Maxwell Inn: Walking distance from town - great! So nice not to have to drive in and deal w/ all that traffic. Nice location near a steam that you can hear when you open your door. Comfortable room w/ all the amenities my husband and I needed (good shower, coffee maker, refrigerator). Easy drive... More

Ira - Thank you for choosing to stay at The Maxwell Inn and writing a review after your experience. We love that you felt comfortable enough to relax after your day of hiking and leave the door open. We understand that some of our rooms do not have very big windows and thus have plans to put in second windows... More

Each time I visit Estes Park I stay at the Maxwell Inn! The kind hospitality, nice rooms, and great location (walking distance to shops in Estes and close drive to entrance of RMNP) make it the perfect place to stay!

The Maxwell Inn was well located, clean and quiet. The location was convenient to the main gate of Rocky Mountain National Park and within an easy walk of downtown Estes Park. There was no pool or any real amenities. The included breakfast was OK: cold cereal, instant oatmeal, pastries and some fruit. The proprietors were very accommodating.

David - thank you for staying with us, and for taking the time to write a review on our Inn! I was surprised that you actually listed some of our amenities in the same paragraph that you wrote that we didn't have any real amenities; however most folks that read reviews will make their own determination on the validity of...

We (2 couples) stayed at the Maxwell Inn in mid-July for two nights while we were visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. It is basically a motel-style building on two levels. Both rooms were comfortable and clean, although our king room on the first floor behind the separate outbuilding was quite small and dark. But the other room with two queen... More

We chose The Maxwell Inn because of the great reviews we had read. And it was not a disappointment! Peter and Dana were great; full of help and information. There ever presence in the lobby was warm and comforting. Unfortunately, when we left for home, I left my phone charger in our room and Dana called to let us know.... More

We were passing through Estes Park and stayed for a single night, but we enjoyed our stay at the Maxwell Inn. The room was well kept and quite comfortable. We stayed in the detached king room in the front of the property, and it has the unique feature of having high ceilings, making it quite charming. The hosts are exceptionally... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Inn. The room you stayed in is our only stand-alone room, which is quiet and cozy.
