“Perfect!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stayed in the Coral Reef room for 2 nights, the experience was flawless! First trip to Colorado Springs and the location is a short distance from a lot of area attractions. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: Great deal on the Coral Reef room

Our Coral Reef room is our "Value" room. Only $99/night (2 night minimum) and the only thing it lacks is a balcony. Breakfast and evening wine sampling are included as is our tailored hospitality. Two nights are three times as good as one and most of our guests wouldn't have it any other way.
We hope to have you back with us, maybe in one of our larger rooms with a private Hot Tub - what do you say??? Stay well and travel safely!

This was my first stay in a B&B and I think for any future quick getaway I will only stay in B&B's from now on. The prices were reasonable for the intimacy and originality if the room. The breakfasts were elegant and delicious. The innkeeper and his wife were friendly, helpful, and great company. They were able to point out some great local restaurants and the location was exceptional for just wandering around and having a relaxed weekend. It was really beautiful and I would recommend it to any of my friends!

Thanks for the great review. We'll take credit for the hospitality and the breakfasts, we don't serve anything I don't eat (as my girlish figure will attest). The location speaks for itself - Historic Old Colorado City is a treasure that few seem to know about. It was the Territorial Seat and the first State Capital (for a few hours) and is now a home for fine shops, galleries, boutiques and dining, dining, dining (ice cream and chocolate, too.
We hope to see you folks again, there's surely more to see and do.

My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased. After a quick road trip around the state, we landed in Colorado Springs and happened into the most comfortable bed I've ever been in. Plus, Done and Shirley were beyond welcoming- their hospitality, cooking skills, and advice about our outings were greatly appreciated. When we're back in Colorado Springs, this will be our first stop; plus, it's located in a great area of town.

It's easy to be enthusiastic about our neck of the woods; the area is gorgeous, the things to see and do are numerous, the shops and restaurants of Old Colorado City are unique and just around the corner.
But equally important are our guests; they make doing our job a pleasure and we have been blessed with some of the finest, most interesting guests you can imagine.
THANK YOU, for being among them and for sharing your experience with other TripAdvisor readers.

The "Old Town GuestHouse" immediately reminded me of the song. It would remind you of a small hotel in a small town tucked away somewhere. But in fact it is a lovely B&B right in the heart of Old Town Colorado Springs. Half a block from Colorado Ave, very close to Manitou Springs and with a wonderful view of Pikes Peak. The afternoon wine time with Don, Shirley and guests is very relaxed. Breakfast though 3 courses (fruit, coffeecake and main course that includes meat) is just right. Thanks for a great time.

If we only had a wishing well, the image would be complete. Thanks for the nice review - we know that our guests have several other choices in our area and we try, all the harder, to prove that they've made the correct choice when they stay with us.
We're ecstatic that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back again and again.

We stayed in the Indian Paintbrush room, not our first choice but the only room available for the two nights we wanted to stay there. To our surprise the room was decorated quite tastefully so even a person that doesn't care for "Native American" decor can really still enjoy the room. The check in was smooth and Don did a great job giving us information on the area and showing us Old Colorado City from our room's balcony. We enjoyed using the hot tub with the breath-taking view of the mountains. You put your hand up and you feel like you can almost touch Pike's Peak.

In the accommodations, I don't think there's anything that's been overlooked. They have a decently stocked pantry with coffee, popcorn, tea, sewing supplies, toiletries, the list goes on... I was very impressed that there were even cotton balls, q-tips and tampons in the bathroom as that is the last thing any girl wants to need and not have.

The wine social was fantastic! They had plenty for everyone and a wide variety of from sweet to dry and white, red and blush (truly something for everyone who drinks wine). It was fun to meet some of the other people staying there and learn what they've done or are doing in the area (we learned there was more to do than we thought!) The room and furniture is very comfortable and when we were starting to think about dinner they have a menu from all of the nearby restaurants and so many of the others that are not within walking distance.

The location is fabulous with the neighborhood being adorable with little privately owned shops and restaurants, but still very close to chain restaurants and retail. Only a few miles from Garden of the gods, trails, parks, etc. And a little over an hour from Royal Gorge.

The breakfasts were fantastic with three courses. We had never heard of Scotch Eggs but were pleasantly surprised! We had a tremendous egg bake the second morning. Mmmmmm...

There are other little things that we think made the stay great, but I don't want to ruin all surprises!

The only thing we weren't totally impressed with was the bed. There's no perfect solution for everyone and I think that it's great that they have something other than the standard hard bed you get at many hotels. Not sure how to describe it, it feels a little hard when sleeping on it but there's certainly plenty of give to it. Probably, like any bed, just takes more than two nights to get used to it.

Don and Shirley have really done a great job at making the rooms comfortable and beautiful. I would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are different. The Indian paintbrush is unique in that it has a twin size bed (sem...

Thanks for the great review. We try hard to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. We're really happy when we hit the mark.
Sleep systems (and preferences) vary greatly and, as you say, not everyone works for everybody. Our waveless floatation beds seem a good compromise on the whole (we love ours).
Again, thanks for the compliments. I'll share this with Shirley and the staff.

My wife and I stayed in the Oriental Poppy room for 4 days and loved it. The hot tub is on the balcony and faces the mountains with a beautiful room. The ladies that were running the place while the owners were on vacation did a great job and we had a lot of conversation while waiting for breakfast or just hanging around waiting for our next sight to see. The room is stocked with pretty much everything you need and everyone is local so asking for personal favorite places to eat and see allowed us to get outside of the touristy parts. It's located in Old Colorado Springs which is right next to a lot of places to shop and eat within walking distance but it's also located close to many of the sights worth seeing within just a few miles away.

There were a couple of issues but they were minor. We were presented with our parting gifts (which were a nice touch) a day early but I believe that was due to the fact our original stay was shorter and I added an extra day later on after the reservation.

We were not told about the breakfast sign up and happened upon it while going downstairs. They seem to make enough regardless though since we removed our name to get an earlier start the day we left but got held up and they served us with no issues.

Unfortunately the owner's were not there but it's obvious that there is a lot of care put into their place and we still had a great time nd look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: The Oriental Poppy rooms with the hot tub on the balcony are a must have to unwind after a long day...

We're thrilled to hear that Lisa and Dawn took such good care of you while we were away. Of course, we knew they would!!! It's easier for Shirley and I to treat our guests well, after all it is our home; it harder when it's "just a job". Knowing that our guests were well cared for made our time away all that much more relaxing.
As hard as we strive for perfection it eludes us but we will keep trying and we rely on our guests to let us know where we can do better.
Thanks for the great review we'll make sure Lisa and dawn see it also.

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Loved that they had a private hot tub on the balcony. Very relaxing and great way to end our night. Lisa the Assistant Innkeeper was very sociable and made us feel welcome. She even gave us 2 delicious truffles in honor of our anniversary. Bed was soft, room was clean. They have a ton of little extra's if you have forgotten anything. I also love that they have popcorn, soda's and movies available if you just want to chill in your room. The evening reception was nice. They had beer, soda and wine and some snacks. We were the only ones that took advantage of this on our night there. It was a nice way to start our evening before our dinner. It was a little foggy and cold when we visited so didn't get to see the beautiful views of pikes peak. We had to leave early so didn't get a chance to have the delicious smelling breakfast that was cooking when we left. Don and Shirley were away on vacation so didn't get to experience their hospitality as so many of the other reviews have mentioned. Would definitely reccommend to anyone looking for a nice cozy place to stay.

Room Tip: Oriental Poppy Room, the patio looks out to Pikes Peak

Thanks for the review and the nice reference for Lisa. We're fortunate to have a person who can take over in our absence. As much as we'd like to be here to meet and greet each and every guest, there are just times when we have to get away for a while.
We had a great vacation and hope to see you the next time your plans call for a night out. Happy Anniversary and many wonderful returns of the day.
