Excellent location in Old Colorado Springs close to good restaurants. Warm and friendly new owners who were very attentive to all our needs. Excellent, filling breakfasts and drinks each evening from 5 to 7 pm. Large and comfortable room with a waterbed for a good night's sleep.

We had such a nice time at the Old Town Guesthouse. David and Kim were very welcoming and we enjoyed the other guests during the happy hour get together. We also loved our room and our balcony!

I chose OTGH based on the good reviews in TripAdvisor and its proximity to restaurants and tourist attractions. Turned out to be a great choice. We booked three nights in the 3rd floor African Orchid room (spacious & airy, with great views of Pike’s Peak) and ended up staying a third because there were so many things to do in Colorado Springs and the accommodations were so convenient and homey. When I called to make the reservation, I learned that Dave and Kim had become the new owners just that day. When I asked questions about attractions that they had not yet visited, they didn’t hesitate to put me in touch with the prior owner. Both Kim and Dave were friendly and accommodating from the first moment (no problem that we would be arriving at 10:30 at night), catering to our food preferences and surprising us with discounts for some of the attractions we intended to see. Breakfast was lavish in a bright & sunny breakfast room where you could sit at a table alone or with a spouse, but easily chat with the other guests and share travel tips. A second floor pantry offered residents 24-hour water, coffee, tea, ice and thoughtfully-labelled boxes containing all sorts of items a traveler might forget at home. Comfortable, convenient and extremely friendly – I’d recommend OTGH to anyone visiting the area.

We found the Old Town Guesthouse by sheer luck. However; it was due to hard work and attention to detail that made our stay there so memorable. Excellent facility with perfect location near downtown. After parked didn't start the car again until time to go. We will be back!

My wife and I recently stayed four nights here after a stay in Denver and could not have been more impressed or pleased with Old Town GuestHouse. From the moment we walked in Don seemed to make it his top priority to help make our stay in "Old Colorado City" as enjoyable as possible. He offered great tips on places to visit but was never overbearing. The (optional) fresh-made breakfasts he made for us each morning were out of this world good. Our room was in pristine condition and cleaned while we were away each day. The afternoon happy hour at the guest house was a charming touch, too. The location is ideal as OCC has plenty of great shopping and dining options all within walking distance, and The Incline at Manitou Springs can be seen from the balcony. My wife and I have been to a few B&B's before, some in larger cities, but none compared to Old Town. A big reason for that was the hospitality and personal touch Don gives the experience. We will most certainly make it a point to stay here again when our travels take us back to Colorado.

We came in for our sons wedding it. Everything was wonderful Our host was very welcoming and available but did not hover. The food was to die for! Each room beautifully decorated I want to come back just so we can stay in the other rooms. I just cannot say enough this was our first experience with a B&B loved it will look for them in the future.

Have stayed at the Old Town GuestHouse for both business and pleasure....Have traveled throughout the US and Europe and this is one of the finest locations I have ever stayed at. The atmosphere, courtesy and friendliness of the owners goes beyond my expectations. Outstanding facility and highly recommended.

Don and Shirley are wonderful hosts and their establishment is top notch. Breakfast was fantastic and my wife and I both enjoyed visiting with Don over complimentary wine or beer. The location is perfect, near quiet Old Colorado City with its selection of restaurants, shops, and galleries or or all the main attractions in the area (Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, ...). We are already looking for a reason to come back and visit!

We have stay at Old Town GuestHouse many times. It's like coming home to family. Shirley and Don are wonderful hosts and great people too and besides that their breakfasts are fabulous. They are located just off the main street of the charming Old Town Colorado which makes it easy to get in and out and QUIET too.

We just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Old Town GuestHouse. We were greeted and treated like friends from the moment of our arrival. We stayed in the Oriental Poppy room and enjoyed the comfortable bed and fireplace. The GuestHouse is walking distance from many excellent locally owned restaurants, shops, and galleries, plus you are only minutes away from the beautiy of the Garden of the Gods. The breakfast and happy hour (complete with local microbrews) was delicious and the company was enjoyable. Don and Shirley are the wonderful owners who take great pride in their family, establishment, community, and guests. We are looking forward to returning to try out the other rooms.

I was greeted personally by the owner upon entering whom then proceeded to help me to my room and make sure very detail was taken care of, even offering a glass of wine once I was settled in. Would highly recommend this establishment, if for nothing else than the service. The amenities were top notch as well, very clean and everything you could need, including steam showers in most of the rooms (probably my favorite feature).

What a wonderful getaway B&B! Wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay at Old Town Guest House and will definitely return soon. Every aspect of our stay was enjoyable, from the warm greeting we received to the absolutely fantastic breakfast and great views! The room was immaculately well kept, the private hot tub was a joy and the fireplace was very romantic. The hosts provide great attention to detail and extras we ordered (our favorite wine and a rose) were there waiting for our arrival. The location is extremely convenient for shopping, coffee and there are some wonderful restaurants within walking distance of the Inn. Shirley and Don make you feel welcome and at home. We've stayed at many B&B's and place our hosts at the top of the list!

Highly recommended My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay at the Old Towne Guest House. The Oriental Poppy room was beautiful! Very cozy and well decorated. We loved having a very private balcony with a hot tub. Breakfast was delicious every morning! We did not make it to cocktail hour; however, everyone else seemed to enjoy it every evening. The inn keepers are friendly and extremely helpful. The location is in the middle of Old Colorado City. There are tons of things to do within walking distance. You never even have to drive anywhere if you don’t want to. I would recommend this gorgeous bed and breakfast to everyone looking for a great experience.

This was our First TIme staying at a BED and Breakfast, and It was an amazing experience. From the Second we pulled up, we were treated with some of the best service ever. Rooms are fantastic and each one differently themed. Also very quiet. The owner, Shirley, was SO KIND and sat with us at the wine social and chatted about anything and everything, then once we picked out the place we wanted to eat, she called and made our reservations. Seriously Recommend this to anyone, we went as an anniversary trip and it made it wonderful and for what you get and the experience, the price is great as well. we recommend the POPPY ROOM. Thanks again.

My husband and I went here for the weekend following our wedding and stayed in the Victorian Rose room. The room was adorable, the service was excellent, and the food was outstanding--the coffee cake alone is enough to get me back! The accommodations were just what we needed and wanted for a romantic weekend getaway.

My brother, from Maryland, and I took a vacation along the Rockies last week. We stayed in Old Town Colorado City/Colorado Springs at Old Town Guesthouse. What a joy! They have one room that has 2 beds, the Indian Paintbrush room. It fit our needs perfectly. I loved my little cozy nook. Plus, the water beds were very nice too. The Inn is clean and shiny and open and refreshing. The "always on" calming music in the library and dining room was such an immediate way to get us grounded and feel relaxed and away from home. The Inn Keepers, Don and Shirley, and all the staff are so nice. We had interesting conversations at breakfast - which was great - and in the library in the late afternoon each day, recapping our day from sightseeing and what hot spots were next on the agenda. The cook of the day accommodated my gluten intolerance issues, making my breakfasts work for me perfectly. I recommend OTGH for anyone looking for a place to unwind, enjoy the balcony views of Pikes Peak, sit in a private hot tub, stay relaxed and enjoy Old Town shops just steps from the front door, other local attractions or just sleep, knowing that all is taken care of and you won't hear a peep from anyone when you close your guest room door! Great job Inn Keeps! Kim and Dave

Our first visit to Colorado Springs could not have been better as this excellent facility not only met our needs for lodging but the location in Old Colorado City was perfect. We strolled the main drag and did shopping and enjoyed great restaurants. Also being close to so many of the local sights was perfect. The innkeepers were very friendly and the breakfasts were very good.

I am in a wheelchair and don't like not being comfortable while on vacation. The Old Town Guesthouse is 100% accessible. it has a very quiet elevator, a roll in shower, nice big bed with plenty of room to move around the room. and has a nice balcony with a hot tub. the dining room is just like sitting at home. and the breakfast is special every morning, delicious! there is a meet and greet in the library with the other guests in the evening to share and compare the local secrets. It is located perfectly. Walking distance to many shops and eateries in this small town with huge hospitality. Its only minutes to drive to all the big local attractions. I can't wait to return.

This is the warmest welcome we've ever gotten, outside of staying with family. Don and Shirley are the perfect combination of hosts and managers. The happy hour on arrival was just what we needed, our room was very comfortable, the food was delicious, there are restaurants of many nationalities within walking distance, Garden of the Gods is a short drive.... We wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely come back!

My husband and I booked the Victorian Rose room for our first anniversary. The room is beautiful! Out of the rooms that were left open for a quick view, ours was by far my favorite. Off street parking, friendly staff, library full of books and movies to borrow, as well as menus for all the local restaurants are just a few perks. Our balcony had the perfect view of Pikes Peak as well as the tallest peaks in Garden of the Gods. The hot tub was wonderfully relaxing and clean. The water bed was strange at first, but it didn't take me long to realize it was one of the comfortable hotel beds I've slept in. The 3 course breakfast was outstanding. We were served a fruit plate, a fancy glass of cranberry-orange juice, a delicious and warm date granola bar, a Scotch egg and side of cheesy hash browns. It was wonderful food served by Don himself! He also gave us sightseeing tips for the rest of our short stay in CO Springs. We were only at the OTGH for one night, and I can't wait to stay again hopefully next year!

What a delightful place this is! We were greeted with enthusiasm and humor, and love their four legged dogbell Pace. This was a wonderful place to spend a romantic anniversary, and we had to leave at 4am so they packed a breakfast to go for us the night before! Chocolates on the bed and truffles, a sound machine was on for us to sleep by, and they greeted us with wine and snacks. A must have stay for Manitou area- thank you Don and Shirley

We stumbled across this Inn when our other option wasn't available. We are so glad we went with the OTGH instead! There's no way another hotel could have competed. JUST THE FACTS JACK: PROS: 1. They have a Happy Hour! Wine and beer and light snack served from 4-6PM which 3 guests took advantage of the night we were there. 2. This is not a tacky, flowery, lacy decorated B&B of the past. In fact, we felt as if we were in a small hotel. It only has 8 rooms and the feeling was of complete privacy. We never heard a peep. Keep your eyes open and you will see bits of tongue in cheek humor in the decorating. 3. There is a ceiling fan or the fan of the AC/Heat if you like white noise in the background. 4. The pièce de résistance is the private balcony with the hot tub for two complete with robes. There's even an awning so when it rained we were cozy. We had a view of Norad mountain and Pikes Peak. Amazing! 5. The African Violet room is big! The bathroom is crazy huge! I could put all my girly stuff all over the counter and my hubby could still easily maneuver. We also peaked in to the Oriental room which wasn't that overdone red silk Asian look. Very classy. 6. It's clean, clean, clean. 7. Three course breakfast was divine. 8. Walking distance to many restaurants. 9. The bed, a tube filled water mattress, was the most comfortable thing I'd ever slept on. This is not a sloshy water bed of the past era. So, so comfortable that only the amazing breakfast could have enticed me to leave. CONS: 1. The game room, with a pool table, in the basement needs some attention. It looks like not a lot of guests use it and other items are propped against walls with a lot of electrical cords everywhere. With 9 pros and a wimpy 1 con I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at the Old Town GuestHouse! Fabulous service, comfortable bed, tasty breakfast, awesome coffee, etc...lots of extra touches that we didn't expect that contributed to a wonderful stay. The location is perfect for people like us looking for lots of adventure. We were centrally located to several of the local attractions which made doing lots of things in one day achievable. Don and Shirley are wonderful and went out of their way to personalize the experience and had a lot of helpful information regarding places to go and things to do. The hot tub was a big bonus too! I believe this experience has turned my husband and I into B&B lovers!

My husband and I chose the smallest room, but it was still comfortable. I peeked into some of the other rooms; they looked very roomy and each had a balcony. The wine event each evening was a fun experience, and I really enjoyed talking with other guests and the innkeeper. Some other positives are that the inn is a short drive to Garden of the Gods, the zoo, the touristy town of Manitou Springs, Pike's Peak, and such. The inn is also within walking distance to good restaurants (Paravicini's is good Italian; Jake and Telley's is great Greek) and some quaint shops. Overall, I had a nice stay, and I am glad that I chose Old Town Guesthouse.

Beautiful rooms, cordial hosts, really excellent breakfast...and an elevator for our heavy luggage. We loved walking into Old Colorado City, barely a block away, and finding several nice dinner restaurants (try Gertrude's) with a pleasant Main Street for a leisurely walk. We highly recommend Old Town Guest House!

The Innkeepers are always around to tend to every need. They even join the guests for complimentary Happy Hour every afternoon in their sunroom. This place is very clean, comfortable & quiet. Breakfasts options from always available cold cereals/toast/bagels to freshly prepared fruit pancakes to egg dishes with fancy names. Only one block from the Old Town Colorado City shopping and dining district. Don't pass this place up. It is a gem.

The room was beautiful and comfortable, it felt welcoming and intimate. The breakfasts were delicious and elegant. The innkeeper and his wife were kind, sweet and helpful.

I spent 2 nights at this lovely, comfortable B&B while in Colorado Springs. I wish I could have stayed longer. The location is great. It is within easy walking distance of Old Colorado City, the historical district of Colorado Springs. It is a short drive to many sights like Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods. Don,the host was most gracious and served breakfast elegantly and cordially. Plus the breakfast was very good both times. My room was light and comfortable even if it was the most economical room in the Inn. I'd certainly stay in the same room and at the same B&B in a heartbeat.

My husband and I live in the Colorado Springs area and were gifted a one-night stay at the Old Town GuestHouse as part of a Wedding present. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Don and Shirley, and their helpful staff, created a welcoming, relaxing and luxurious experience for us, including a beautiful room with all the comforts of home and a private hot tub on the deck overlooking the mountains. We will definitely recommend the Old Town GuestHouse to friends and family in the future!

We are not B&B people however we stayed at “The Old Town GeustHouse” because our friends that we have known for years suggested we do so. We stayed in the Colorado Columbine suite which allowed me, a photographer and artist to see Pikes Peak every morning from our balcony. The room itself was spacious with double sinks in the wash area, a steam shower, and a king sized bed. The service was outstanding, breakfast were luscious with a wine party each afternoon from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. Because of some really great dining in this part of town they do not serve an evening meal however the choices for dinner range from hot dogs to very fine dining establishments. Don and Shirley will direct you when asked. The hosts graciously accepted guests and made them feel like family as did the staff which was pleasant. The room was well kept and very quiet as we could not hear our neighbors at all. We visited a lot of the attractions such as: The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak of course, a roadway called Skyline Drive which was spectacular, the Air Force Academy which was wonderful, Cripple Creek and Victor and much more. All in all it was a great experience.

Our entires family (plus!) were able to enjoy the week of my daughter's wedding so much because of all the special things that Don and Shirley did to make us feel at home.

Rooms are welcoming and provide ample space for a bed, seating area, desk/chair, double sink wash area and separate bath/shower. An outdoor hot tub and fireplace added romantic ambience. A full 4 course breakfast and afternoon wine were an added bonus. The staff accommodated my gluten needs, and did it with flair. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay - we will return. Ann and Roger

This is an outstanding B&B run by a couple that is very friendly and accommodating. Everything from the location, to rooms, to breakfast was exceptional! My room had fireplace that came on with spin of a dial, very comfortable bed, my own hot tub on my own private balcony looking at Pike's Peak, and it was on the 3rd floor, which was fine as they have an elevator! Breakfast each morning was delicious and served/prepared by the owner (Don) in 3 courses with delicious coffee/teas/juices/cereals. He even made me a sack breakfast one morning since I was leaving early to go skiing! The location was optimal too, within walking distance of Old Colorado Springs which is loaded with shops, restaurants, etc. Within a few miles of Manitou Springs, the Garden of the Gods, and just about 10 minutes from downtown Colorado Springs. Convenient to I-25 and everything else! I highly recommend this B&B to anyone in the area. Very affordable, very friendly, and lovely accommodations. Thanks Don & Shirley! Will see you again on my next trip out! Leslie - St. Louis, MO

We spent a week in Colorado -- put on about 1,000 miles in one week! Much of it was spent in a time share condo in Vail.

It was my birthday and the inkeeper made it very,very special! Our room was simply gorgeous. Thank you! Mike and Julie of Birmingham, AL

This b&b has far exceeded its hype in the media. The quality of the rooms (especially the Oriental Poppy), the smallest touches like bath amenities, fridge, waterbed, (in our case, awesome hot tub with Pikes Peak views), soft chairs, fireplace and books & magazines related to their travels in each room, and the innkeepers' humor & hospitality were so welcoming. Don & Shirley make each guest feel as if we are part of their close friends. Wine & appetizer time in the evening is fun & interesting. And the breakfast & dining area is off the charts! Two extraordinary meals & Don's humor was a great start to each day. Our son & daughter-in-law stayed one night there, which was their first b&b experience. They loved it!! We all hope to return one day and would recommend this lovely, historic inn to all our friends. Bill & Molly Alward

The host, Don, is generous in a concierge role, and his home is very pleasant with perfectly stylish and comfortable rooms . A beautiful, bright library for 5 o'clock wine and peanuts and popcorn is stocked with information binders, movies and other books. I almost wish I could have hung out in there all day. A lovely breakfast is provided in the airy dining area with options to eat outside. I would definitely stay there again if in the area. It is right in the heart of old town, and a short drive to Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods, and Pike's Peak. Small details are apparent throughout the guesthouse.

Where to start. The location is just minutes away from the Cog Railway and the Garden of the Gods. Not to mention the excellent restaurants on Colorado street that you can walk to. Then the rooms are wonderful with great views, we rented a hot tub room the African Orchid and was perfect. Breakfast very tasty and top notch. We enjoyed live music in the park on thursday night. There is nothing to complain about. Don't miss the gathering at 4:30 and meet the rest of the folks staying. We had a wonderful, relaxing visit and highly recommend the Old Town GuestHouse. You will not be disappointed.

We decided to go and see my son in Colorado springs, he was doing an internship. I started looking for places to stay and I came across Old Town Guest House on line it sounded so nice that I talked my husband into it. He went along,but I was the one excited about it! After we got there and stayed for one night he loved it to and believe me he's a hard sell. It was very comfortable and the Breakfast was great. I would recommend a stay here to anyone. Thanks again to Don and Shirley :)

My wife and I have stayed here twice now, and had terrific experiences both times. We love the private outdoor hot tubs, the decor in the rooms, and the bathrobes provided in the rooms for our use. The innkeepers are both friendly, knowledgeable about the local area, and extremely available to guests. They provided free wine in the front library/sitting room area (we only discovered this the second time we stayed... too bad!) in the afternoon, and breakfast in the morning was pretty good both times. Our only (small) gripe is that it's a little bit expensive, though the generous military discount they offer helped offset that for us. I believe they offer similar discounts for cops, firefighters, and other public servants like that. Overall, it was an excellent experience, and we definitely recommend this place to others and will be back if we're ever in the Springs area again in the near future!

The Old Town Guest House was a real pleasure during our recent trip to Colorado Springs. Our room, The African Orchid, was well decorated, and the water bed was super comfortable! Of course, the evening was enhanced by the hot tub on the deck with a view of the mountains, and the moon rising! Add a bottle of Chardonnay, and you have a party! We also liked Host Don who was friendly and informative, but not overly so. Breakfast was good, but the setting was better. Don went out of his way to introduce a new green tea and gave me a sample to take home. We hope to return next year. Jesus and Linda

We will fondly remember our 20th Anniversary at the Old Town Guesthouse! We loved the quaintness of a B & B but with all the modern amenities...new rooms with deck, hot tub, comfy waterbed! Also, loved being close to the main street to walk to all the shops and delicious restaurants! Lastly, thank you for the gourmet breakfast and warm hospitality; it was a wonderful stay!

The Old Town Guest House is an exxcellant B&B. Beautiful rooms, friendly staff and right in the middle of Old Colorado City. It is a romantic setting and an excellant place for a couple to get away. We would recommend it to anyone.

Coming from sea level (PA) my husband & I like to ease our way (& lungs) up to our ski home in Breckenridge. We do this by staying at a lower-level location for a few days and to use that time to get to know the surrounding area. This time it was Colorado Springs and having stayed at a Select Registry before (in Estes Park) we used the Registry to locate a B&B in this area. We were delighted to find The Old Town GuestHouse. It couldn't be more perfectly located -- right in the midst of Old Colorado Sity, just a few minutes from both Manitou Springs & Colorado Springs. Don & Shirley were the perfect hosts -- there when you needed/wanted them, providing the best breakfasts ever, and their passion and care for their B&B was ever present. Having a hot tub on our own private deck was so very special, allowing us to soak tired muscles after a hike and take in the views of Pike's Peak. We were able to peak in all of the available rooms & none would be a disappointment. But, the hot tub is a PLUS.

We travel to the Colorado Springs area frequently and have always thought this would be a nice place to stay. The exterior of the B&B is very inviting. Now that we've stayed there for 4 days, we can definitely say that this is a "must" when in the area. It is immaculate and every room is tastefully decorated (we caught them during a lull, so we were able to take a tour of all of the rooms). It appeared that all of the rooms had great views. Our room's views included the Garden of the Gods and a perfect view of Pike's Peak. The food was wonderful. Both the dining room and library/den were also tastefully done. Don and Shirley were the perfect hosts and we enjoyed many conversations with them. It was like staying with friends. Great B&B owned and operated by great people. This one is a "keeper."

You could not ask for better service and generous hosts. My husband and I found a wonderful place to get away from our stress. The rooms were very clean, and the food was very delicious. Thank you Don, Shirley, and staff for taking care of every perfect detail and all of our needs.

We have traveled extensively, both in the USA and abroad, and have never experienced anything like this: The room was tiny and not well cleaned. In fact, one day it was not cleaned at all. We made sure Don and Shirley knew about this (we called them when we returned that evening - they were out of town), but neither one apologized nor seemed to care, nor made any effort to compensate us in any manner, whether by gesture or other means. This is an expensive B&B for what it provides, and we found it to be more ostentatious than enjoyable; more surface "showmanship" than honest friendliness. It does seem that Don is going through the motions of running a "highly rated" B&B. Every evening during check-in time (4-6pm), he served wine and wanted to sit and talk with everyone there about their lives and daily experiences. He also spent a lot of time talking about himself, his family, and what he apparently thought were his great experiences. This is not what we were looking for, and we were very surprised by his intrusiveness. He also wanted to recommend places for us to go, and places for us to dine, but we wanted to make our own decisions, and never stayed for his wine hours after the first day nor followed any of his recommendations after the night of our check-in. Don also told us his "rules" when he showed us our room: We were told not to turn on the electric fireplace because it would use too much air conditioning, not to turn the AC below 68 degrees because it would "freeze" his pipes, and he refused our request to turn down the temperature of our hot tub, which measured 104 degrees, and was too hot. He told us just to try it the way it was. Again, we have never encountered this type of experience anywhere, and would never want to repeat it. Shirley was uninvolved during our stay, except for her annoyance when I had to call her in the evening to tell her that our room had not be cleaned, our towels not changed, nor our bed made.

The proprietors of this hotel are super nice and available. The breakfast each day is awesome and you even have the choice of getting it delivered to your room the night before if you have plans that will cause you to miss the next day's breakfast. We has some special requests for Don & Shirley (bike parking, packaging tape, receiving packages) and they accomodated us without hesitating. Great place. Great hospitality. Great food. Great location.

Truly, Don and Shirley have thought of everything to pamper guests and make them feel welcome and special. From the delightful happy hour to a stocked coffee/tea/necessities bar to the mints on the bed with tomorrow's forecast, it is our very favorite of the many B&B's we've visited.

The Bed & Breakfast we'd reserved for our wedding night was a major disappointment -- there was no one there to check us in, and no one would answer the phone. I was tired, frustrated, hungry, and ready to scream at the first person I found. Old Town Guesthouse was the first B&B we found, and they had rooms available, so we decided to try it out. It was AMAZING! Not only beautiful rooms and a great view, but those little things that make a huge difference: a basket of teddy bears on the stair landing, in case you "need a friend for the night", and in the 10-15 minutes before we arrived, Levi had run upstairs to write us a welcome on the mantle. Don & Shirley are super-friendly, and the whole staff is amazingly helpful. The building is gorgeous, and in a beautiful part of town that I never knew existed. I wouldn't stay anywhere else, now that we know this is here.

My wife and I were very impressed with the Old Town Guesthouse. The rooms were amazing and very clean. We especially enjoyed our private hot tub on our private balcony that overlooked Pikes Peak. The food and service were excellent and we highly recommend this B & B. We will be back!

My family and I really enjoyed the stay at Old Town GuestHouse. It was perfectly situated for the many activities we had planned in Colorado Springs. The bathroom was clean and spacious, and the bedroom had two beds, which was perfect for the two of us and our 13-year old daughter. Breakfasts were fantastic!

Excellent B&B, both accomodations and service. Outstanding attention to detail, anticipating guests needs. Innkeepers very nice and friendly, helpful. Walk 1/2 block to main street of Old Town, great shops and restaurants. Only 10 minutes from downtown CO Springs. Great view from front rooms/balconies.

We stayed at this beautifuly decorated b n b last december while we were on vacation to colorado springs. We stayed in the rose room im not sure the whole name now but it was gorgous with a fire place right at the end of my bed!! There was a two person hot tub on the balcony that faced pikes peak perfectly. In the mornings the breakfast was great. We will be staying here again for sure the price was good. They had really a really comfy bed in that room too. The only thing that i have to say that is not outstanding but not bad was the room was a little small but with the fire place and hot tub we relaxed perfectly so it didn't effect us negativly. We also got to peek in some other rooms and they all were not small rooms. Thank you Shirley & Don for a wonderful stay!!

This B&B was perfect for our 4 year anniversary. Great location around great shops and dining. The room was clean and neat and very warm. LOVED the bed! I want one just like it for my house. Private hot tub is a must. Had the "snuggle package" and the chocolate strawberries were awesome! Visit with the owners and other guests in the parlor every night was great. The wine and conversation were unforgettable. Shirley and Don are great people and do a great job making you fell at home. Will return very soon!

Our Harley Group took a ride up to Colorado from Allen, Texas and stayed two nights in Old Town GuestHouse. My wife and I had stayed there about 3 other times and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our Harley buds were surprised and very pleased with my choice. We were greeted by Shirley and Don Wick, the owners and Innkeepers who are just SUPER HOSTS. We were all checked in quickly, had a tour of the rooms and got settled in then adjourned to the dining room where we had a great reception of wine, beer and cheese. Afterward we strolled up the block to Colorado Blvd. where there were an abundance of good restaurants and bars. What fun we had including the hot tubs on all four of our private patios (3 of which face Pikes Peak and the 4th faces the foot hills.) There is ample parking OFF the street, very nice rooms, excellent location and a gourmet breakfast every morning. We used this as our base for some great touring including Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge and an outstanding ride to Cripple Creek. If you want a first class B & B, in a great location, the Old Town GuestHouse is for you.

My wife and I were looking for a special way to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed B&B's on our honeymoon and stayed at one on our 1st anniversary, but not since then. At the recommendation of a co-worker, we booked a room at the Old Town GuestHouse and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed a warm greeting upon arrival with an invite for a glass of wine and light snacks. When we arrived at our room, we found personal anniversary wishes and two heart shaped chocolates laid out for us. After getting settled, we enjoyed visiting with other guests and Don and Shirley over a glass of wine. When we left for dinner at Gertrude's, Don and Shirley gave us a card good for a free glass of wine with our meal. We enjoyed a quiet romantic meal, followed by a leisurely stroll through Old Colorado City. We arrived back to find our bed turned down and a plate with two chocolate coins. After enjoying private time in our balcony hot tub, we settled in for the night. Our stay concluded with a scrumptious 3 course breakfast and a delightful visit with Don. We received a warm farewell from Don and Shirley and an invite to keep our vehicle in their parking lot while taking in the local sights. We had an incredible stay and look forward to doing this again.

We called the same day for a reservation and lucked into a fantastic stay! Don was the perfect host, more than happy to accomidate our needs. Took his recommendations for dinner, mentioned our B&B and that owner went out of his way for us! Nice to stay in a place that has charm without the creaky old house quirks. Will stay the next time we're in the area! Thanks, Bec & Bill

Colorado Springs is an important travel destination in that our grandson is enrolled at the Air Force Academy. Any trip to see him will include a stay at the Old Town GuestHouse. Parking is perfect; the gourmet breakfast is outstanding; and the ROOMS are out of this world. Back this up with numerous eating establishments with in walking distance and you have aperfect place to hang your hat

From the moment my husband and I entered Old Town Guest House, we were pampered beyond our expectations. A homemade cake was in our lovely room with anniversary wishes. Don and Shirley Wick gave us touring tips, made reservations for dinner, served scrumptious breakfasts, and made us feel at home. We had a private hot tub on a balcony with a view of Pike's Peak. We had wonderful amenities such as robes, refrigerator, wineglasses, books, CD's, videos, bath products, chocolates. We entered as strangers but left as friends.

This was my first experience at a B & B. Shirley and Don Wick were personable and efficient. Probably won't stay in a regular motel or hotel again - that's how delightful this B & B was. Food was extraordinary.

The Innkeepers were very attentive and their focus on details was excellent. We were however, surprised by the casual, home setting. We enjoy a more sophistocated upscale setting. Some of the public areas were dated and messy. We didn't like the waterbed in our room.

Both of my stays at this property were absolutely amazing and made my 3rd anniversary as good as my honeymoon. Innkeepers are very warm and welcoming and the inn has numerous AAA 4 star diamond awards and the only in Colorado Springs with Select Registry.
