My husband & I were in Estes Park for a family wedding in Dec 2015. We enjoyed the room that had a king bed with the amenities we needed. This location was close to shops and our wedding venue. Dana & staff were friendly & personable. One of the mornings we saw 6 elk as we enjoyed our free breakfast.... More

Clean, clean, clean. The Maxwell Inn was just a delight. The office staff was friendly, helpful, and quick. We enjoyed the variety of breakfast items they offered each morning. They are within a 5-10 minute leisurely walk from downtown Estes Park where we found multiple places to shop and eat. We were left wanting nothing, coffee, water bottles, hot chocolate,... More

Room was very small but clean. We enjoyed a weekend exploring the Rocky Mountain National Park and this was our home base. Light breakfast, recommendations from the very helpful staff. Price was reasonable and the location was great..

The Maxwell Inn is a wonderful, cozy retreat on the doorstep of Rocky Mountain National Park. The location is perfect! Rooms are really clean and have a rustic mountain lodge feel. The free breakfast is pretty solid, and there's a new patio outside where you can enjoy your morning coffee in the sun or a bonfire at night. The owners... More

Our flight into Colorado was cancelled due to a blizzard event, shortening our stay at The Maxwell by one day. We called The Maxwell hoping to get some of our money back for the night we were going to miss. I was expecting to have to argue but Dana, one of the owners, completely understood and gave us a full... More

We had a terrific stay, great accommodations, the owners are fantastic, friendly, helpful and the whole inn has a homey and friendly feel. It's also within walking distance of downtown Estes Park and just down the road from RMNP. We will absolutely stay here again.

We had a very pleasant stay recently at the Maxwell Inn. We had always stayed in cabins on previous visits to Estes Park, and we were wary going into more of an inn or motel setting. But we were won over by the very nice property and even nicer owners/managers! Pros: The room is newly remodeled, and it was beautifully... More

This place was perfect for a friend's getaway to the mountains. Close to most things Estes, chill hot tub (with a view of a huge bull elk lounging in the grass across the street), and very comfortable beds! The main staff person (owner?) was so nice and helpful. Our room faced the street, but we didn't hear any outside noise.... More

We stayed in room #10 & it was very nice & clean. It was well equipped for our 2 night stay. The vanity had granite & the bathrooms were newly updated. We will definitely stay there in the future! Also, we loved the location. It was a short walk to restaurants & shops!!
