We stayed 2 nights and were considering a third but our itinerary would not allow it. The owner was very accomodating to our proposed change and treated us like you want to be treated. The Inn was clean, the king bed was very comfortable with good quality linens. There was good wifi service and it was convenient to town and... More

We booked by contacting Dana, and she was so accommodating. She left such a positive attitude that we couldn't wait to meet her in person. My husband's comment was that she was one of the sweetest persons he had ever met. Inn is exactly as described: immaculate, friendly, easy to find, and on the free trolley route. All furnishings seemed... More

Laurene - It was great to finally met you and your husband (after the flood prevented you form visiting Estes in 2013). We were happy to help you find a route to your next destination and were happy to hear that you made it there without any road troubles. We look froward to having you as guests for many years...

After reading some of the previous reviews, I don't think there's anything I can really add. The owners definitely make this "the place to stay" in Estes Park. They were friendly and super helpful with restaurant and hiking recommendations. The hotel itself is small, quaint, clean and has the perfect location---close enough to town to walk yet out just enough... More

Stayed on 2nd floor. Room was clean & comfy. Bathroom was on the small side (toilet & bath/shower), so ask for a room with a bigger bathroom if that's important to you. Slept great---did not hear any other guests and the bed was perfect. Owners were wonderful, nice and helpful. The continental breakfast was fine for our needs. Husband &... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay and our Inn. Since your stay we have finished our patio renovation and our guests are loving being able to sit by the fire in the cool mountain air! You will definitely have to plan a return trip to The Maxwell Inn and relax by the fire. More

My husband and I stayed at the Maxwell Inn at the beginning of August for two nights. Prior to arriving, Dana (one of the owners) sent us a wonderful email warning us about a road closure and provided detailed directions on how to get into Estes Park. Most hotels or inns would not have even thought of emailing their customers.... More

Stacy - vacations are meant to be stress-free and relaxing. With that in mind, we try to do what we can by offering insider tips on hikes that we have done personally or heard from other guests, give route updates (especially with all the rebuilding construction), and of course offering a clean and comfortable place to rest at the end...

I stayed here with my husband and 2 teenage sons for 3 nights. We loved the hotel which as just outside of the town that had lots of shops and restaurants. There was a beautiful wandering pathway that lead into town. The owners, Peter and Dana, were extremely friendly and accommodating. Dana came to our room to let us know... More

My husband and I stayed in Room 3 and it reminded me of staying at my grandmother's home because the owners, Peter and Dana, have taken great care to keep the room as original as possible but yet it has modern amenities such as a rain shower shower head; a rounded shower curtain rod; a flat screen TV and a...

The Maxwell Inn is an easy stroll to the heart of the restaurants and shopping in Estes Park yet it is tucked away in a quiet enough place that we took pictures of elk 20 yards from the Inn. The rooms are clean and are large enough to spread out with the bedroom separate from the bathroom/fridge area. The Inn... More

This hotel is the best place we stay in Estes. In our budget and rooms are the cleanest I have ever stayed it. Comfortable beds. When I go solo to fly fish and don't want to drive all in one day I get the smaller single room. They are small but so am I so that works. Nice place and... More
