We stayed at the Maxwell recently on an overnight trip to Estes Park. We wanted to see the results of the flooding and also offer a little bit of financial to folks in the area. The new owners are in the process or renovating the property, so not everything is where they want it to be, but we were very happy and comfortable with the accomodations.
Dana at the desk was very friendly and hospitable. She gave us a room that did not face the road, although honestly, they is hardly any traffic right now! Our room was clean and comfortable. They had re-done all the woodwork, including new headboards, nightstands, and bathroom door with beautiful knotty alder. The vanity and sink were not yet updated in our room, but many of the rooms have been we were told.
The beds were REALLY comfortable as were the pillows. The entire room was done tastefully with nice throw pillows and little touches.
We enjoyed the hot tub on the side of the building in a private fenced area. It was wonderful to look at the stars and soak in the lovely hot water!
The continental breakfast was perfect, nothing fancy, but had everything we needed; GOOD coffee & teas, fruit, yogurts, muffins, danishes and cereal for our daughter. The breakfast room has a fireplace in it which made it all even more charming and cozy.
The entire property was well kept even though it is older. The new owners just took over in April and are not finished with the place, so it will get even better! We felt they have done a wonderful job so far and will definitely go back!

Chip and Family - Thank you for staying at The Maxwell Inn. We love chatting with other business owners, who happen to be guests, and swap and share stories about the business. Thank you for pointing out the quietness of the property in relation to our closeness to the road and to Downtown. That's one of the things that drew us to this property, we have such a close proximity to all the things you would want to do in Estes Park, but while on the property, you would never guess that we were so close because it stays so quiet!

And we enjoyed talking with you about the renovations we have completed and the ones that are on the books to be completed. We are continuously responding to guest feedback and making changes as we go. Like you mentioned, some bathrooms have been touched up here and there, we can not wait to be able to update them totally. You will have to come back to check on our progress or to see the projects we have completed (wink, wink)! We hope to see you and your family again soon.
