“Comfortable place, gracious hosts and good food.”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We found Spurs & Lace and Leo before Joyce joined him. We have stayed at quite a few B&Bs in our travels and none with as friendly and gracious hosts as Leo and Joyce. We stay here about once a year for 3 nights to a week when visiting Colorado Springs. The location is perfect as there is a great espresso cafe around the corner and historic Old Colorado City starts one block away. The breakfast is usually a light soufflé and fresh fruit, if you are looking for Bacon & Eggs, try The Dive which is within walking distance. The best nightly rate is achieved by contacting them directly by phone. We prefer B&Bs and Spurs & Lace specifically because we get to meet and interact with the other guests at the 8AM breakfast. They range from other parents visiting their kids to a young couple who were Air Force tanker pilots. I have also contributed a story to their breakfast storybook. One year my wife and I even cooked lunch for Leo and Joyce. I would give Spurs and Lace 10 star if allowed.

Joyce and Leo were great hosts. The accommodation was spacious and this is definitely the place to go to re- connect with 'whatever' no TV was ok as we still had wifi. We knew that our room would not be serviced during our stay and we were shown where extras were stored and we were ok with that. The only downside for us was the mandatory breakfast at 8am. The meal was ok but not what we were used to and too much and if staying be sure you have an understanding of your countries position on the euro, religion, and marriage. We did enjoy story time at the end of breakfast. All said we would stay again although our starting position would be bed only no breakfast.

I chose this B&B for the price and the reviews were favorable. I should have read through more reviews. The place was clean and fine for the price, $66 per night. There is no maid service so you need to be ok with either making your own bed or leaving it unmade. The garbage pail in the room was not emptied so you have to empty it yourself. Towels are not freshened each day and the dresser they provide for your clothing is stuffed with pillows and blankets. There is no closet just 4 plastic hangers on a coat rack. Breakfast is 8am sharp and is always the same and not very good. When you advertise bed and breakfast the breakfast should be special and varied. Put some thought into it, please. The innkeepers, Uncle Leo and Joyce are nice but they should really rethink the business they run. It's more of a boarding house than a bed and breakfast. Check in time is 2 hours per day, that is ridiculous! If you get there past 5:30pm or before 3:00pm you will need to call Leo and hopefully he will answer the phone and tell you where he left the key to the house and the key to your room, outside in a plastic bowl. Not a comforting thought. If you know you have guests arriving you need to make yourself available to greet your guest not go to the movies and require your paying customer to track you down. Bad business and a bit rude.
It is in a good location for most of the sights and a 5 minute drive to Dunkin Donuts! All in all I would recommend for one night but if you are going to be in colorado springs for more than a night find somewhere else to go.

A very nice and friendly atmosphere in the lovely old building. The owners are friendly and don't miss the story at breakfast time! Next to the fire station it is in a good and quiet position. I would stay there again. Thank you.

Step back in history when you enter this charming Bed and Breakfast. Leo and Joyce have done a wonderful job in giving it that old west style to each room. The house was built around 1895 and still retains a lot of it's original architecture. Bathrooms have been updated, A/C units are in every room and several rooms have an outside balcony. We stayed upstairs in one of the suites.
Leo and Joyce (the hosts) were very friendly and eager to provide information about the city and the surrounding area. The beds were comfortable and it's very quiet in the evening. Breakfast consisted of a bowl of fresh fruit, followed by egg soufflé (served in a small bowl, and then a breakfast cupcake (also served in a small bowl).

Conveniently located 1/2 block from Colorado Ave. with its charming shops and restaurants, Garden of the Gods is minutes away and so is Manitou Springs.

This is a comfortable and charming place, not luxurious. We will stay here again.

This bed and breakfast was conveniently located for our trip. We were here to visit Pike's Peak and Colorado Springs. Our hosts were very knowledgeable and provided a nice breakfast. If you are leaving for an early day of sight seeing, you might need to factor in breakfast in a nearby restaurant as breakfast here is not served early. Our rooms were very nicely appointed. However, if you go during very hot weather, the small, older window air conditioner may not adequately cool the room. I raised the windows for cross ventilation as soon as we were shown to our room. Since we were there very early in June, the nights cooled off nicely. Be advised, there are no tv's and no telephones in these rooms.

My girlfriend and I found Spurs and Lace while looking for a place to stay while in Colorado Springs. We had a wonderful time. After reading some other reviews, I realized that perhaps this B&B is not for everyone, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. We only stayed for one night, so I can't comment on room service.

The building and rooms are beautiful, with simple but elegant accoutrements, like the Alphonse Mucha prints you will see as you ascend the stairs. We got one of the larger rooms (Victorian Rose Room), and while it's not huge, it was more than enough for our needs, and the bathroom had a big old tub for soaking. The building itself is what I would call a Victorian style, a square building more tall than wide, with three stories. The yard and gardens surrounding the house looked beautiful, with an inviting gazebo, although I never got a chance for a closer look. The views are beautiful, with some mountains in your face, and Old Colorado City right around the corner (another place we didn't get to check out).

The proprietors, Leo and Joyce, are very kind and open people. They are older than they look, so be patient with them, and I am sure you will see that they are wonderful, vibrant people. Part of the key to staying healthy is eating right, and this gets more important as you get older, so don't expect a huge breakfast with eggs, bacon, toast, waffles, etc. as one reviewer did. I believe the breakfast courses are described somewhere. We had a fruit salad, then egg souffle, then a baked fruit tart sort of dish. All tasted good, and it satisfied my hunger.

I see that some people had difficulty with breakfast. I think the issue is that, if they expect you for breakfast, they will make food for you, that is preferred not to go to waste. I am sure they can accommodate you if you can't make breakfast, just let them know. And if you want to sleep in, make sure you don't get the one room that is next to the dining area. It's a really cool room with awesome old photographs, but it doesn't work for sleeping in. I also saw mention of Leo telling a little story at breakfast. Yes he did that and his story had a great point, and was humorous as well.

I think Leo and Joyce try to make your stay a unique experience. This is a great place to relax and unwind, with so much to do nearby: Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Garden of the Gods, Woodland Park, Old Colorado City, and much more. I live in Colorado, so I am in the mountains all the time, and the views still astound me. So if you live where it's flat, come stay and have your mind blown! Bring your camera.
