Reviewed July 7, 2013

My daughter and I travelled across country and while in Estes Park we stayed in Maxwell Inn. The location is wonderful; close to the shops and restaurants, close to the entrance of the park. The front desk man and woman were very warm and accommodating. We had bedroom 16 and it was so comfortable. From the decor to the amenities, it was fantastic. The morning breakfast was delightful: coffee, tea, milk, water, pastries, yogurt, cereal, bagels, fruit. The price is reasonable. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone who enjoys a comfortable sanctuary after a day of play, whether in the shops or mountains. Whenever I pass through Estes Park, Maxwell Inn will now be my hotel of choice.

PROS: We stayed in room five and it was very clean. We had everything we needed and when I didn't have a toothbrush they were able to provide one. There was a sidewalk that ran right into town so we walked everywhere. It was also within easy driving distance of Rocky Mountain National Park. If you're looking for a hotel with a good location, decent price, and clean then this is for you.

CONS: There were really no cons for the price of this hotel. If you are looking for a hotel where you would want to stay and spend time, you may have to find a more expensive place that offers private decks and views. If you are just looking for a clean, convenient place to see than this is five star!

Room Tip: Room five was great.

Breanna, Thanks for taking the time to review our Inn! We definitely feel that our location, value, and comfort are hard to beat, but we also know that some guests would like to spend more time in the room and might appreciate a balcony, etc - so thank you for the insightful review for would-be travelers! We've really worked to create an inviting Inn with personalized touches here and there. I am happy that this was a great trip for you all and that you really enjoyed our Inn! Come see us again!

The hotel staff was so friendly right off the bat. The hotel looked great and was very clean. It's located very close to downtown Estes. There was a light breakfast available as well. We would go back here again if we stayed in Estes again.

Customer Service can really make or break a stay. We're not the newest building in town, or the biggest, but we try to provide clean, comfortable lodging with plenty of personalized touches. Thank you for the review and please come back soon!!!

The Maxwell Inn is a great place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of life and to experience the peace of the Rocky Mountains. The small inn experience was very relaxing and the newly renovated rooms are clean and comfortable. Our hosts--the owners, Dana and Peter--made us feel right at home and were available to help us plan our activities in Estes Park. The Maxwell Inn is a great value and is in a very convenient location. This was the perfect place to start our first Colorado vacation—a Rocky Mountain high note. Thank you, Dana and Peter!!

Ron - I hope the rest of your trip went as well the first part! It was great meeting you two and hope that our insight on local activities kept you busy and made some great memories. One of the best parts about running an Inn is meeting all sorts of folks and truly trying to make a difference during their stay. Thanks again for the review, and we look forward to seeing you two again if you head out this way in the future!

The location, accommodations, and guest service was phenomenal! Everything from the treat on the pillow to the free DVD library made me feel very much at home. We stayed at the Stanley Hotel in December and if I had to choose between the two, I would choose the Maxwell Inn.

Angie it was a real pleasure working with you and your family! We try to make sure every stay is ideal and enjoyable! Whereas we certainly don't deliver the "Weston" experience (very predictable, etc), we have our own version of a unique and inviting décor. Most folks, yourselves included, have really enjoyed our small Inn. Thank you for taking the time to review us, and we can't wait to host your family again.

After looking at several places in Estes, I chose the Maxwell Inn and I couldn't have made a better choice. This place is newly remodeled and it is beautiful and welcoming!! The mattresses and pillows are extremely comfortable. My daughter loved the huge, soft bathroom towels and said they could soak up the Big Thompson river! The new owners are young, energetic, sweet people and will do anything for you. They offer a great continental breakfast, including oatmeal and yogurt. The location is great and just a short walk to town. We would definitely stay there again!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 19 and had a little table and chairs and a bench just outside our room and would s...
