Old Town Guesthouse B&B
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2013

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

Kim and her brother were a delight to have as guests. They even offered to help with a surprise meeting - fortunately we didn't actually need them. We hope to see them back here the next time their plans bring them to the Pikes Peak area - perhaps they'll be able to carve out more than a couple of days next time.
Thanks for the kind words - it IS appreciated.

We stayed here on our wedding night my mother in-law surprised us with the cuddle package! The champagne and chocolate covered strawberries were wonderful. And we will have the blanket to remember our night. We will be staying there for our first anniversary as well! The breakfast is delicious!

CONGRATULATION! once again. Live and long and happy life together and, perhaps, you'll spend an anniversary (or two) with us. We hope and trust that your married life had a pleasent start here at the GuestHouse.

During a quick call to Don, I was sold by his description of the available room they had for the night. I was in the midst of a 9000 mile, 21 state soul-searching odyssey across America and back again. Old Town GuestHouse is the holy grail of B&B's. Every conceivable detail and amenity has been attended to and the sheer thought that went into the design of each floor is nothing less than extraordinary. People have been led to believe that "the devil is in the details", meanwhile Don and Shirley obviously hold that "divinity is in the details". I could go on for a long time and breakdown each and every detail, but 1) others have done an excellent job describing their experience and 2) further words would do no further justice to just how good this place is. So, all I can say with absolute certainty is that if you need a place to stay in northeast Colorado, look no further than Old Town GuestHouse. You'll be thrilled you did.

Room Tip: Any room, ANY, will amaze.

Great review, thanks. We're glad you 'happened' upon us and hope to see you back again - next time 'on purpose'. There's a lot to do in our area and we're always ready to swap stories, opinions and/or experiences over a glass of beer or wine. Hope to see you again soon.

We stayed at this B&B for 4 nights in September. (The longer stay resulted in a per night discount which was very much appreciated!) It was wonderful!! OTGH is located in Old Colorado City, and many restaurants and shops are within walking distance. We stayed in the Indian Paintbrush room which was spacious and had gorgeous views. The private balcony (with hot tub) and great views of Pikes Peak were a bonus! Innkeepers, Don and Shirley, made us feel welcome. Early morning coffee was always available, and the breakfasts were delicious and hearty. The evening snack/ wine time provided a nice opportunity to "unwind," and get to talk to Don and other guests. We found the waterbed to be very comfortable and appreciated the double vanity, in-room refrigerator, and various snacks and drinks that were readily available.
Don and Shirley were helpful in making restaurant suggestions and reservations, and copies of many of the menus were available to look at in their library. Overall, we were very pleased with this B&B and would definitely recommend it to our friends:)

Room Tip: LOVED Indian Paintbrush Room -- quiet, great views of the mountains, and hot tub on private balcony!

Great review! Thanks! Couldn't help but notice that we were marked down on cleanliness. That is something we will definitely address immediately. Housekeeping is a hard job and we hold our staff to a high standard but shortcuts are inevitable. It's up to Shirley and I to keep things up to par. We will review our practices and, hopefully, make those improvements that are necessary and expected.
Anyway, we're glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope to see you back with us again.

Had a great stay! The bed was comfortable, the room was lovely, the private deck with hot tub was divine, and the views from the deck were breathtaking. Don and Shirley were kind, helpful, and helped us with dinner recommendations. Overall it was a fantastic stay and a great place to relax.

Room Tip: Victorian Rose has a fantastic view of Pikes Peak and a private hot tub on the balcony.

Can't take much credit for the views - but they are spectacular from 7 of our rooms especially the 4 with private out door hot tubs. We are blessed to be situated where we are. Not only are the views wonderful but we're so close to them it's easy to get out and enjoy the bounty that Mother Nature has afforded this area.
I notice that these folks were from Littleton, CO, just up the road a piece. The idea of a stay-cation, has really caught on - you don't have to go far away to enjoy some quiet relaxation away from everyday activities and worries.

My girlfriend and I stayed overnight in the Victorian Rose room. The room was clean, the bed was super comfortable, the service was great, and the balcony with a private hot tub and view of pike's peak was awesome! We arrived late in the evening, but Don still gave us a warm welcome with a glass of wine and beer even though we had missed happy hour. We were also leaving early in the morning and missed breakfast, but Don made sure we had bag breakfasts with homemade muffins and some other snacks to take with us. We just wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone staying in the Colorado Springs area!

It's nice when we can earn a compliment from guests who hardly stay at all. We do try, in little ways, to make everyone feel welcome and appreciated. It's our hope that these folks will come again and stay longer.

This is a great place to stay, I'm in a wheelchair and had absolutely no issues with accessibility. The breakfast, owners and staff were top notch. In a perfect location and a hospitable town. I highly recommend this B&B. They go out of their way to make you feel at home

Room Tip: Our room was on the third floor and was perfect, soundproof and clean

We had high hopes that our accessibility would set us apart (and ahead) of our B&B competitors - and it does. Sadly, most folks with handicaps don't even look at B&B's - too many horror stories of less than average accommodations because of stairs and first floor room locations.
We're thrilled to see this review it has made the ramp, elevator, roll-in shower and special alarm system worth the thought and effort.
People in wheelchairs have enough to battle without jumping hurdles just to spend the night.
