Excellent B&B in the best location - right in Manitou Springs. Easy, very short walk to all the shops and restaurants in Manitou Springs. The Avenue Hotel B&B is an modernized boarding house - well appointed rooms, excellent ambience. When people ask where to stay in the local area, Avenue Hotel B&B is the first place that comes to mind!

This place was amazing! I wanted a romantic getaway with my husband, and this was it. I highly recommend the Osage room and add in the "Date Night" package for an unforgettable experience. My only regret is that we enjoyed the room so much we never made it downstairs for breakfast in the morning. I'm sure it would have been outstanding. We'll make it to breakfast next time for sure! Thanks, Gwen and Randy!

My husband and I spent nearly a week at the Avenue Hotel to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. We had met in the Colorado Springs area and this was our first trip back since we moved away. Gwen and her staff made our stay feel like a dream vacation. They made us feel very welcome and at home. Every breakfast was outstanding and Gwen worked with us to provide special dietary choices. Our room was always kept clean and tidy. And they provided tips and advice about area attractions that helped to make our stay even better. We will never forget the awe inspiring view from the top of Pikes Peak but what made our trip a "Dream Vacation" was our stay at the Avenue Hotel.

Due to scheduling constraints, my daughter and son-in-law were forced to travel on their anniversary and sleep in separate beds. To make it up to them, I arranged for their final night to be an anniversary retreat at the Avenue B&B. Both of them are very, very picky about where they'll stay and what they'll eat...everything must be Eco-friendly. They gave this B&B the highest possible compliment..."Mom, you and dad have to schedule you're own retreat here. In fact, you may just see us every year so we can make this 'our anniversary spot.'" They live in Washington...that says everything!
