Old Town Guesthouse B&B
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 30, 2012

My other half and I live in Estes Park & decided to take a last minute getaway to visit Manitou Springs for his birthday, as he had fond memories there many years ago. We found lodging to be limited and after an exhausting search we booked at Old Town Guesthouse, late at night and online. After I clicked submit I realized this property was in CO Springs....oops! I frantically left a vm & sent an email to cancel. Shirley obligingly did so the next day (though by the rules, she very well could have refused a refund), and gently informed me (non-local that I am) that they were a mere 3 miles from our destination. We loved what we saw online so we decided to go for it. It was the right call!!

The location is perfect (so much to see and do in Old Colorado City), they allowed us to park in the lot prior to check in and check out the surroundings. The interior and exterior are beautiful and well cared for. Don & Shirley could not have been more gracious hosts! Warm and friendly without being obtrusive. The social hour was relaxing and a lot of fun,the dinner recommendation was spot on and they kindly made the reservation for us. They had truffles in the room for the birthday boy even! The breakfast was delicious and just the right amount of food. The room was beautiful and just the right size for 2, and the steam shower was divine!!

They provide everything that embodies the perfect B&B, we can't wait to come back! Our 1 and only regret was that we only got to spend 1 night. Thanks Don & Shirley for a much needed getaway!!

Thanks for the great review and gracious words. The Old Town area of Colorado Springs is an, as yet, undiscovered treasure. Everyone know about Manitou Springs with its coffin races and fruitcake toss but so few realize that 'Old' Colorado City is just down the road and is the birthplace of the state, steeped in history and populated with great restaurants, unique shops and several outstanding galleries. We hope that others who read this review (and reply) will take the path that leads through our little piece of history and commerce.

The Old Town GuestHouse is a terrific place to unwind, relax and enjoy some pampered Colorado living. Our innkeepers Don & Shirley were great and far exceeded our expectations. We had an especially early bike ride one morning and Don got up early and fixed us an awesome breakfast before anyone else was awake. They were always going the extra mile for us. The entire old Colorado City area was very great. Be sure to check out the farmers market on Saturday mornings for some delicious local produce. Can't wait to come back again.

Room Tip: We were in the Cactus room which was excellent but next time we would like to try the Columbine room...

Thanks for the nice review! 'Tailored hospitality" is what someone called our type of servce. Not everyone wants the same level of attention and we meet to do what the guest needs and wants. Glad we hit the mark when you were with us. Do come again!

Great location along the Rockies and so close to the garden of the gods! We stayed in the columbine room and had a lovely view and balcony. The fireplace was a great addition to a very comfortable room. The hosts are very kind and we liked the social hour at 5 pm. Ron also made us dinner reservations and I recommend the Italian restaurant down the street where the locals flock.

The Colorado Columbine room is my favorite - I'm so glad you liked it as well. The view IS spectacular, thanks for the kind words. The restaurant, was it Paravicini's or Dat's Italian, they're both great places but quite different. Hope to see you again, when you're out our way.

We enjoyed are stay at this BnB immensely. We have traveled over the years from coast to coast and border to border staying at BnB's whenever we can find one conveniently located.
This BnB has it all. It is in the top 2 or 3 places we have stayed. The room arrangement, decorations, food quality, dining area, library are excellent. Good restaurants in walking distance.

We stayed overnight at the Old Town Guesthouse and had a lovely stay. The Innkeeper Don made us feel warm and welcome. The breakfast was delicious and our room was very comfortable and cozy. Every detail is thought out to make guests feel at home. We will definitely visit again.

We stayed with a group of couples and had a wonderful time at Old Town GuestHouse. The staff was incredible, the food was divine, our room was superb, overall we were thrilled with our experience and definitely plan to return...with friends! The fresh coffee & delicious breakfast alone are worth another mention. Oh and the happy hour daily was a sweet touch! Don & Shirley have great attention to detail.

Room Tip: We loved the hot tub on our balcony and view from our room on the third floor.
