“Didn't disappoint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stayed there last year and loved it. Of course, it was pretty new at that time and when we booked another stay there recently, I hoped that the "newness" had not worn off and it had become just another hotel. They didn't disappoint at all!! In fact, they have made even more improvements to the place!! It is the cutest little place. The rooms are so comforting and cute. The beds are soft and the blankets warm for those chilly nights in Colorado. The towels are so soft and fluffy. I felt pampered. I love that they are close to town so you can just walk to where you want to go and not worry about parking. And the fact that the owners are so nice and accommodating, you won't go wrong staying at this place when you visit Estes Park.

We are happy that you chose to stay with us again this year, we only wish it could have been for longer. Hopefully you will keep up in mind the next time you are able to get away. And thank you for reviewing our Inn, again.

We recently enjoyed a night at the Maxwell Inn. It is a retro styled motel on the outside with updated and very clean rooms on the inside. The linens are very nice, the beds comfortable and surroundings beautiful. The staff is very nice and helpful. The little patio area with fire pit and hot tub are perfect. You will enjoy your stay there!

What a wonderful reset for a quaint and cozy mini-hotel. Each room has unbelievable custom touches that make you feel like you are staying with your favorite aunt. Great beds, super clean remodeled bath, tons of electrical and USB outlets, convenient parking, free dvd's and the friendliest inn keepers west of the Mississippi river.

Free breakfast, great location (we saw elk and deer) and ONE minute form downtown, yet you feel like you are far, far away.

Young family just moved from Missouri and they do the Show Me state proud!

Room Tip: When you go online you can actually view every individual room. We really liked 16, on the end, supe...

J & J - It is so nice to hear that you two liked the option of using our website and choosing the specific room that you wanted. Room #16, like a few others, is one that got new bathroom tile, custom made vanity, soapstone counter top, new headboard, nightstands and upholstered chairs this winter! To hear that you and your wife loved all the updates we did to the rooms, warms our hearts. Thank you for trying a new place, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and Mother's Day at The Maxwell Inn. We hope to see you again soon!

The rooms are beautifully designed in warm inviting tones. The beds were very comfortable. There were DVD players in each room and a selection of movies in the lobby. Simple but fulfilling continental breakfast is provided. They just installed a gas fire pit, which is a great place to gather. However the best part was the hospitality. The staff was very helpful. That recommended things to do and a great restaurant for dinner. We will definitely come back!

Wendy and Brian - It was a pleasure meeting you two and sharing similar experiences in life and work made for great conversation. We are glad that our restaurant suggestions were well received and we would love to hear about your ATV adventure. You two were our first visitors to enjoy our newly renovated patio area and fire pit, so we are happy to hear that it was enjoyable. Hopefully next time you come you can bring the rest of the family and enjoy even more of what Estes Park has to offer.

Travelling from the uk to spend a couple of days in the Rocky Mountains national park before continuing to Utah we chose the Maxwell Inn. All we can say as UK weary travellers is that our stay exceeded all expectations and the level of customer service and comfort we found exceeded our expectations. Dina could not do enough to facilitate our needs and coming off a 10 hour flight the comfort of the bed and the beautiful quiet surroundings were just perfect. The location is ideal for quick access to the national park and a very short walk by the river to downtown where we had a great meal and a beer or two. You are doing a great job with your hotel and I am sure you will have a busy season. Thanks for everything, Gary and Jo from Hampshire UK

My wife and I were looking for a couple of days rest between a conference in Aspen and another in Denver. This place has highly recommended on TA. We were very happy with the room, the location, and even the continental breakfast in the morning. The owners were a wealth of information which helped us to plan the two days that we had in Estes Park. Even got a call the day before we left Aspen with some tips on avoiding the snow as we came to EP.

Whether you are coming to Estes Park from the Front Range, Highway 70 or the Denver Airport, we realize that you will have a little bit of a drive. In hopes that you arrive in Estes and at The Maxwell Inn safely and not weary eyed, we try to help our guests find the best route. When we found out that you were going to be coming from Aspen, CO, we wanted to make sure that you knew that certain roads would be unpassable this time of year (Trail Ridge Road) and which routes were not under major construction. We appreciate your feedback, and are happy to hear that you were able to enjoy your time at The Maxwell Inn and in Estes Park. We hope to see you again someday!

This is our second time staying at The Maxwell Inn and we love it! The rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable, and the location to town, restaurants, and local area attractions is perfect. The owners are very hospitable and more than willing to help in any way. As this was a special trip for our 29th wedding anniversary, we were delighted to find a beautiful bouquet of roses in our room!
Thank you so very much Dana and Peter for everything, we will return! Steve and Sherry W.
