Great visit

4.4 on January 10, 2018

This place is like a time-capsule. We stayed at the end of the Christmas/New Years period and really enjoyed it. The house is over 100 years old and is decorated in period furniture and old-style radios from the 1930s-1940s. The breakfasts were outstanding and made fresh while you are waiting. We stayed in the Lilly of the Valley room on the first floor and had no problem with sounds from upstairs. There is parking in the back of the house and it seemed safe. The house is right next to a creek that has a great walking/exercise paths on either side. Great downtown restaurants and shops just one block over. Surprisingly, some of our fellow guests were locals that just wanted "some time away." We will definitely stay here again especially if we want that 1940s Christmas time-capsule feel.

Fantastic Experience

Lin, the innkeeper, was warm and inviting when we arrived for check in. The ambience of the Crescent Lily is so charming and really takes you back in time. The rooms were extremely clean, well kept, and quiet. The gas fireplace in our room made for a cozy atmosphere on an extremely cold and windy night. Our breakfast was so tasty and we both enjoyed the juice and tea options. My husband and I will definitely be back for another stay and highly recommend staying at the Crescent Lily Inn!

30 Anniversary June 3-5, 2017

My wife and I cannot say enough about Crescent Lily Inn. Soon as we walked through the door my wife and I felt invited. We were told by Lynn that she was upgrading our room to the suite and it was amazing. My wife and I used the sitting room everyday to relax by the fire and read and relax. Mark made a nice addition by piping in classical music through the speaker system he installed. The breakfasts were enjoyable and they were very accommodating due to my diabetes.The victorian home and furnishings is a great atmosphere which is my favorite time period. Also, this inn is convenient to everything: downtown Colorado Springs, restaurants,music and I-25. Whatever we needed to make our stay better, Lin and husband Mark took care of from beginning to end. I definitely recommend this Inn and would return.

This is a great bed and breakfast. Superb service and hospitality, great rooms, in a beautiful setting, right in downtown. The owners do most of the work themselves and are extremely friendly. Wonderful place to stay at.

A great week at Crescent Lily Inn

I can't say enough about how accommodating our hostess was and how welcoming this inn is. Lovely breakfasts, delightful Victorian atmosphere, clean, well-kept rooms, quiet, and a relaxed, homey environment. Also, this inn is convenient to everything: downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado College and I-25. Whatever we needed to make our stay better, Lin and husband Mark took care of including our late arrival and our adjusted schedule due to weather. I definitely recommend this Inn and will return.

Thanks for the lovely review. We really enjoyed having you as guests and hope to see you in the future. Glad you are home safe and sound. You were treated to the biggest snow storm in the area since 1998!

All's Well That Ends Well

We arrived right at check-in time, but they had not recorded our reservation. The queen room we had booked was already occupied, but fortunately for us, we were able to be upgraded to the suite for our one-night stay. They were very courteous in apologizing for and addressing their mistake. The room was spacious and cozy; the breakfast delicious and filling. There is no "Onsite Dining" but the site required me to leave a rating. Instead, there are lots of restaurants and shops within close walking distance in downtown Colorado Springs.

Fabulous Find!

We stayed at the Inn in August of 2015 and I have no idea what the other reviewer was referring to when they talked about an odor because there was no odor and our stay could not have been better. We stayed in the Water Lily Room. Although we never had a chance to check out the jetted tub, everything was top notch. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, clean and well maintained. The bathroom was also really well done and the dual shower was a wonderful surprise. The bed was super comfortable and it was very restful. We really appreciated the hospitality and we highly recommend the Inn. Lynn and Mark treat you like family. The food was excellent and the company wonderful. We will definitely be back.

I was sad to read that you did not have a good stay at our Inn we just had new air-conditioning installed in July and there was a problem with the pump on the air conditioner and it had leaked some water in our basement. On the day that you stayed, we had called the AC people to come, but they could not come to the following Monday. The problem has been thoroughly rectified.

Weary traveler finds warm respite at Crescent Lily Inn

4.2 on June 09, 2015

After an 8 hour drive from Nebraska, I was one weary traveler. So, finding the Crescent Lily Inn at the end of my travel day was a wonderful welcome! Lin was a gracious hostess and help me acclimate to the Inn and its surroundings. I had a great night's sleep and had an outstandingly delicious breakfast before I headed back out on the road to New Mexico. I told Lin I would return for a weekend stay as the Historic area around the Inn is enchanting. I strongly recommend the Crescent Lily Inn!

Comfortable and Clean!

4.6 on January 01, 2014

We have stayed at the Crescent Lily Inn twice in 2013 for a total of five nights and will return again. I enjoyed the comfort of the bed and the breakfasts. The owner has a great sense of knowing when to talk and when to let guests be on their own. She is respectful of privacy and won't bend your ear unless you engage her in a conversation. I appreciate this since sometimes I am unable to engage and yet I like the feeling that I have made a connection with someone in the community.

Absolutely wonderful experience!

5 on June 09, 2012

Crescent Lily Inn is a hidden gem. The rooms are beautiful, each one with a charm of it's own. The location is terrific. Breakfast was delicious! The history of the Inn is amazing. The renovations are incredible. You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a quiet, charming, peaceful B&B that allows you to escape for a few days. Yet, it is very convenient and close to many attractions in Colorado Springs. I plan on returning to Crescent Lily Inn often!

Great romantic getaway!

4.4 on March 15, 2012

Lin, the B& B owner, is a gracious and caring host who meets you with a smile and warmth. Easy to book online reservations with prompt return e-mail confirmation. Credit and debit cards used for online bookings. We stayed in the Water Lilly room twice in the last ten years, both for a couple's romantic getaway, and the room and accommodations were superb. The room had a huge king side bed that you could just nestle into and snuggle, as well as a roomy two person jetted bath tub that was wonderful! Very roomy, and the gas fireplace added great ambiance. Breakfast was solid and good, with two kinds of juices, multiple hot teas and coffees, hot chocolate, and other drinks. Our mushroom and cheese omelets were quite tasty. The ease of the time there took one back to quieter and simpler times with all the restored antiques and amenities. We will certainly stay with Lin again! What a bargain for $140.00! Greg & Kim

What a gem

4.2 on July 25, 2008

Great value-- gorgeous house and furnishings, quiet and extremely convenient location within walking distance of downtown, the art museum, the college and the Pikes Peak walking/running path. Great security. Sensitive, attentive service.

Good location

3.4 on February 27, 2008

We stayed one night here. Located just a few blocks (an easy walk) to downtown. Lily of the Valley room was clean, comfortable. Warmed up quiche served for breakfast. Didn't see much of owners, except for a couple minutes.

Nice Place to Stay

3.2 on November 03, 2007

We had a nice stay at the Crescent Lily Inn. Our room was the Lily of the Valley. The inn is located in a good section of town and the innkeeper is friendly.
