Best Bed & Breakfast experience

5 on July 27, 2017

My wife and I had our greatest B&B experience at Avenue, We were treated like family from the moment we checked in and Gwenn made sure to introduce herself the next morning before breakfast out on the front patio. The food is amazing and you can tell it is made with love. We stayed in the Manitou Room and it is an awesome room with a bed that will make you rest all through the night. You must stay here if you are in the area!

Wonderful stay

This was our first time at a B&B and it was absolutely wonderful. The place was clean, beautiful and very friendly. The breakfast was the best meal we had while in Manitou Springs. We will definitely come back here and recommend. Thank you!

Beautiful Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast

5 on January 13, 2016

We have stayed here before, and will continue to come back. The Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast has gorgeous rooms, all different and unique. Gwenn is an amazing hostess and cook. There are optional packages that you can purchase with your stay. We don't live that far from here, but it is always worth coming here to have some time away. Manitou Springs is a fun town, and everything is within walking distance. Great place to celebrate an romantic anniversary.

The Ave is the best spot you must visit in Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. We keep coming back over and over and will do so as long as we travel the area. The wonderful food is one of the biggest reasons we keep returning but you will want to stay for the care and hospitality as well. Come for a visit and keep coming back like us!
