Old Town Guesthouse B&B
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2011

We travel to the Colorado Springs area frequently and, whenever we have driven past this B&B, we always say "we should stay there sometime." We just came home from a 4 night stay and were highly impressed. While the exterior of the building is very inviting, the interior is even better. We stayed in the Oriental Poppy room which, like all of the rooms, is decorated very tastefully. (Since we caught them during a lull, we were able to tour each of the rooms.) Besides the hot tub on the balcony, we had a great view of Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods. I don't think this was unique to our room . . . they all had great views. The dining room and library/den were also very tastefully done. Tasteful is also a good word to use regarding breakfast. The food was great. The entire B&B is spotlessly clean. Shirley and Don are the perfect hosts and during our stay we enjoyed many conversations with them. By the time we left, we felt as if we had stayed with friends. My only concern regarding writing this glowing review is that they won't have an empty room the next time we want to stay there! Seriously, this is great place to visit. Truly one of the "BEST".

Room Tip: You can't make a bad choice.

We had our first visit to this B&B in October. We liked the location and beautiful vistas of Pike's Peak from our room. The inn is newer construction in an old part of town, clean and well maintained with the convenience of an elevator. Knowing the Colorado Springs B&B market this one is on the high end price wise. Breakfasts were good but uninspired, nothing memorable. What was memorable was the bed! Their beds are "upscale" waterbeds that for us were anything but comfortable. We would not knowingly sleep on this type of bed in the future. Our hosts were gracious and outgoing willing to answer any inquiries or offer suggestions. Were they to switch to conventional mattresses we would rate this inn excellent and consider a return visit.

We nearly always choose B&B's or small inns. This one has gracious, hospitable on-site owners, is new construction on the site of the old jail and firehouse in the historic Colorado City district, and is easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. It also has a sky light lit central staircase and an elevator to aid with luggage.

Rooms were very quiet but the beds are high end water beds, no sloshing, not chilly, but not for everyone. Also we missed the cookie jars which most inns provide.

We had a very nice stay; thanks to our hosts Shirley and Don Wick!

Room Tip: We stayed in Victorian Rose. "Our smallest room but it has an amazing view of Pike's Peak...

We liked the location of this b&b for the shops and restaurants like Gertrudes. It's not far to drive to Garden of the Gods for exercise, Trading Post for jewelry, and Craftwood Inn for a special dinner. The breakfast is yummy and entertaining by Don. It's the only place I know that has an elevator which helps for taking the luggage upstairs. Rooms are beautiful with a hot tub on your private porch, and stunning view of the mountains.

Room Tip: We liked the Oriental Poppy for comfort and beautiful view from the private porch with a hot tub.

We stayed at the Old Town Guesthouse for the last three nights of a long vacation in the USA. We wanted a relaxing place to stay and chose this B&B on the basis of good reviews. We were very glad we did.

Our room (Oriental Poppy) was comfortable and well appointed. The balcony had a private hot tub and a view of Pikes Peak.

The provision for guests is exceptionally good. The excellent three course breakfast has 2 sittings depending on how early you want to rise. There is a library with a good selection of books and films.

Should you wish to attend, there is a drinks reception provided every afternoon between 4:30 and 6. This is a good chance to meet Don (one of the owners), other guests, and have a chat about what people have been doing. Don is a very amicable host, and is happy to recommend restaurants and make reservations. We had some very good dinners within a short walk of the guesthouse.

The basement contains a selection of games and a pool table. Wi-Fi worked well. An area on the 2nd floor includes a microwave, microwave popcorn, ice machine, water, soft drinks, and assorted boxes for the use of guests with first aid items, stationary, mending kit and others. There is off-street parking

The room was quiet, and we slept well in the comfortable bed which was made in the mornings and turned down in the evenings, at which time a weather forecast for tomorrow and 2 chocolates were left on the pillow.

Overall we were impressed with the attention to detail, cleanliness, and hospitality and would recommend staying here.

This was our first stay in a B&B. Very good location, just a block off Old Colorado City area - lots of shopping and restaurants. We stayed in the Indian Paintbrush room with private hot tub on the deck, sitting area w/gas fireplace, queen-sized waterbed, an extra twin waterbed (not needed), and generous size bathroom with double sinks. Bedroom size was average - not cramped, but not overly spacious either. Furnishings (chairs near fireplace, bedspreads) seemed a little run down/faded, but matched the very nice early American style decor in the room. Two person hot tub on deck was really why I booked the room. Private stucco/brick walls up sides of deck - we could only be viewed by a house on the hill maybe if they had a telescope! :-) Never saw the innkeepers Don or Shirley, but Kim was very welcoming in giving us a little tour of the place and pointing out amenities when we first arrived. Cozy public rooms, well decorated. Small touches were nice - like individual chocolate-covered strawberries waiting in room and chocolate coins outside our door at bedtime. Welcoming notes and wish for a good night card could be classed up by using some nice cardstock. Waterbed did not agree with our backs too much, and I feel the type of bed should be explained on their website. Breakfast smelled good, but we ate outside at a nearby restaurant instead 'cause we picked a late time to eat (chosen the night before) not knowing we'd wake up to the smell of bacon coming in the windows very early the next morning! Overall, we enjoyed our stay but I feel the room was overpriced a bit - OK for a splurge for one night, but not sure I could justify a longer stay.

Great review! Thanks! We're always looking for ways we can improve - it just too easy to keep doing it the same way. We'll work on the things you suggested.
Waterbeds: always a question, no bed fits everyone's style but most of our guests love them. Not sure how to advertise them without scaring away those who think waterbeds are still the "big bag of water" some of us enjoyed back in the 60's & 70's. We hope you weren't too, too uncomfortable.

We could not have enjoyed our stay at Old Town Guesthouse more. Don and Shirley were friendly and helpful. I think what impressed me the most was the cleanliness of our guest room and the common areas. Both Don and Shirley were available for chats and recommendations but never forced their attention on us. You can tell that they truly love the area and want to share it. The breakfasts were delicious! A bonus, an honest staff that called to tell us that we unintentionally left cash in the room when we checked out...you don't find that everywhere!
