My family was desperate to stretch our legs the evening we reached Maxwell inn. The room was perfect and my little one went to sleep soon. Being lazy, couldn't drive a lot for dinner, planned to walk cross the NY Pizza shop .. Yummy. Inn was all like it was advertised.

Room Tip: I was in room 8 facing the parking but could see tip of mountain in far. Was good though

My wife and I recently spent several days at the Maxwell Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms have recently been remodeled. They are very neat, clean and attractive. The location is great, very near downtown so you can walk from the hotel. They have great amenities, continental breakfast, outdoor hot tub, seating and fire pit. A great place to stay and we will definitely be back!

The Maxwell Inn is a great Inn right outside of RMNP. We stayed in one of the newer rooms with 2 queen beds. Rooms are large compared to other hotels at/near national parks. The bathroom and shower were clean, beds were comfortable, and the proximity to the park was fantastic. The free breakfast was basic but met out needs. One added feature was the pizza place Atonio's next door. Great pizza and they walked it over to our room after getting the on line order mixed up.

Room Tip: we asked for a newer room, since we knew that was recently built.

Me and my boyfriend came up spur of the moment to try and camp, were natives ( well I am) and thought we could handle the cold but it snowed and we ended up staying the night in our car so we were already exhausted from a cold sleepless night, we came up at 8am to Maxwell Inn and Dana explained the rates and that check in time wasn’t until 4 but I think she could tell we had a rough night and let us check in at 1230.. so it gave us plenty of time to have breakfast and hike for the morning. Once we were checked in my boyfriend was thrilled that there was WiFi, cable tv and football for the big Sunday night game. It was sooo clean and the amenities were beyond our expectation! We’re coming back indefinitely and we want this to always be our go to! Thanks Dana :-)

Scrambling at the last minute to make a week in Estes Park happen, during what may be the busiest week of the year and coming up short, when I received a call from the Maxwell Inn. They were able to piece together 6 nights in 3 different rooms for us. We couldn't have found a more perfect place to stay! The Maxwells have a true gift for hospitality! They made us feel very welcome, and genuinely interested in providing an excellent experience. The room transitions were effortless on our part, and we were given great suggestions for restaurants, hiking trails, scenic drives... Every room was great! 22 was my favorite for its spaciousness but each one was clean, beautifully decorated and possessed a well thought out use of space and accommodations. Beds were very comfortable with layers fresh clean bedding to accommodate anyone's preferences. They even put complimentary lip balm in the room, which we had not anticipated needing in that dry mountain air! Gas fireplaces in the rooms, how fun is that to start or end your day with! Firepit outside with a bottle of wine from Safeco after a great day in the mountains. Easy walk to the shops and restaurants. Complimentary breakfast was perfect, everything we needed to start an active day and held us over until an early dinner. Many more favorite things about this place, you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: All 3 rooms were great but 22 was most spacious.

ERB52 - Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our motel and for staying with us! Sometimes room switches are a big turn-off to people, and we understand that, but we do try to make it as seamless as possible! 22 is one of our new Annex Rooms (only Annex Rooms have fireplaces), and the best way to book those rooms is on our website at themaxwellinn (d0t) c0m. Otherwise, calling us directly works, and we can help you find a room that would be what you're looking for. We appreciate the compliment on hospitality and the overall feel of our motel. It's very rewarding and enjoyable work when guests are happy and are looking forward to making the most of their time here, either downtown or in the national park. Your review is much appreciated - both in the time you took to write it, and in the ways that your insight will help other travelers in the future. Thank you again and we hope you can get back out to Estes Park sometime soon!
