We absolutely loved our stay at The Maxwell Inn in Estes Park! The owners were super friendly and helpful with great recommendations and advice for restaurants and attractions in the area. Our room was clean and modern and very cozy. The bed was very comfortable...best I've ever slept away from home. Our king room was on the small side but... More

Very comfortable rooms, fully accesorized but most of all - the owners were so hospitable and nice! We came with a gas stove to cook a bit in the room but it didn't work, and the owners were willing to let us use their own kitchen stove. That's what I call dedication!

We did not plan to go to Estes Park due to the shutdown, but then decided to visit the Rocky Mountain NP after reopening. The Maxwell Inn was on the top in Tripadvisor list and I booked it with no doubt. We easily found that nice place by navigator. Our room was not made, so, we had to move to... More

We stayed at the Maxwell Inn for 3 nites at the end of 2013. The room (#4) was comfortable and roomy, with nice extras like a fridge and microwave. I have back trouble, and the bed, although fairly new, was too soft for me. I asked if they had a pad or something I could put on the floor, and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Maxwell Inn in late October and Early November 2013. The motel is under new management, a very friendly young couple who work very hard to make sure your stay is a good one. Our room was very clean and the beds were quite comfortable. We did find that there was not adequate drawer... More

All 17 rooms recently got new headboards that were made by a local Fine Furniture business. That same business is working on new nightstands for all the rooms and then new 3 and... More

What better way to enjoy a get-away to Estes Park, than to check into a cozy clean hotel room and be able to relax. We believe that a guests experience starts at check-in, so we try to be as welcoming as we can. A guests 2nd impression happens when you step into your room, most guests expect to find a... More

We were in Estes Park to visit Rocky Mountain. We chose this Inn based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. We felt very welcomed and our room was quaint, with extra little touches. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were perfect! :)
