“Truly a Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

My husband and I wanted to quietly celebrate our anniversary. We only had a quick weekend to get away from our four children, and Avenue was perfect. It was charming and quiet. The room was perfect. There was plenty of space and between the room itself, the attached sitting room and the attached bathroom. The old building offered plenty of charm and character without having to give up on any luxuries. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and then spent a slow and sweet morning in the cute town. The location was perfect. Within very shot walking distance of restaurants, etc. and a quick trip to many local attractions. We are making this a tradition!

My partner and I stayed here for a little weekend R&R to reconnect and have some quite time. We stayed in the Carriage House loft and couldn't be happier. I am a stickler for southern hospitality and customer service. Thanks to Gwenn/Randy and their entire crew we felt pampered and welcomed. It felt like a little home away from home with delicious breakfast each morning. Also at our request we had breakfast delivered to our room as we needed to just be lazy & recharge the first morning we were there. My God we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day until late dinner, food was the best! Although we probably could have just snacked. We also booked couples massages that were in the main house. The massage therapist came to get us and led us to a cozy, warm place in the basement and what incredible massages! We will visit again! Thank you,

Room Tip: The only thing about the loft outside of the main house was that we could hear the night time activi...

I spent one night there while doing business in Colorado Springs. The home is beautiful, and Gwynne's breakfast was over-the-top tasty and nourishing. Randy helped me feel right at home by keeping the fire going, and Zoe was a true four-legged delight! Would definitely visit again. Thank you!!

After reading some scathing reviews on Yelp, I was a little wary of staying. I was wrong...this is a great place, friendly staff who aren't in your face and let you relax. We stayed in the Pawnee, which is a great space to relax, with a great sitting room. Breakfast was terrific, just enough to stuff me. This is also in a terrific location for Manitou Springs, with the center of town just out the front door. The house is absolutely beautiful, and there was great soundproofing, which doesn't always happen in B&Bs. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Some rooms do not have a bathroom in the actual room. Our bathroom was right next door, which was no...

What a beautiful B&B run by a couple of outstanding innkeepers. Randy and Gwen sure know how to run an inn. The place was super clean and it felt warm and inviting to stay here. My wife and I stayed for Valentine's Day. We also booked a couples massage through Gwen. The massage therapists came to our room to get us and led us into their very relaxing studio in the basement of the hotel. The two ladies were very professional and gave super good massages! They gave us first class treatment and had us finished up in enough time for us to make it to our dinner reservations.
Breakfast the next morning was very tasty and was served to us with smiling faces! Thank you Randy and Gwen for making our stay a memorable one. We'll be back!
It's not hard to see why they're rated #1 on TripAdvisor. They certainly have earned their reputation.

We love the Avenue Hotel B & B. We have been there 4 times now, and it's never disappointing. Although we only live on the other side of town, we go there for a mini vacation. Gwen is an amazing cook and is always very welcoming. The rooms are beautiful, as is the whole house. It's within walking distance of everything to do in Manitou Springs, and it doesn't matter if it's summer, winter or spring. We've been there every season. I would highly recommend staying here, and I know that we will be back. We stayed for our 20th anniversary and got one of the packages that was available. We went out for the evening and when we came back, there were rose petals and candles everywhere. It was amazingly romantic. The date night package has a dinner gift certificate at a local restaurant.

Room Tip: The Ruxton is on the backside of the Inn and is very large with windows all around. They have the co...

Excellent small B&B right in Manitou Springs. The Avenue Hotel B&B has several things going for it - wonderful old boarding house updated for modern travelers (without ruining the ambiance), LOCATION (can easily walk to all the shops and restaurants in Manitou Springs), excellent hosts (thanks, Gwen!) who are very knowledgeable about local events, sites, etc. If I'm asked about staying in the local area, the Avenue Hotel B&B is the first place that comes to mind!!
