Looking to getaway for the weekend, we were searching online for some place different to stay. Since we had both been to Stuart in the past, we were surprised to find an actual hotel in downtown. The online pictures convinced us to book the weekend there and we were not disappointed in the least. Upon arrival, Steven (the friendliest, most accommodating hotelier you'll ever meet) greeted us in the lobby with a fresh squeezed lemonade and a personal tour of the grounds. We booked the Deluxe Studio and it was perfect. After a day at the beach, the Elliot Museum, the Florida Oceanographic Society and a late lunch at the Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House, we relaxed and put our feet up on the balcony outside our room as the sun began to set. The Tiki Bar below us was playing reggae music which was a perfect compliment to our wine and my cigar.
Book a stay here and you won't regret it!

My husband and I were part of a group of 3 couples who stayed at the Old Colorado Inn for a weekend. NONE of us wanted to leave! The Inn and the grounds were beautiful. Very well maintained and comfortable. One couple had the cottage, one had a luxury suite, and we had the Sailfish suite. The owner, Steven was very nice, and always accessible. (not that we needed anything, because they had it all taken care of!). Each morning we received fresh bagels, fruit and juice, right to our door. We never took our car anywhere because there are many restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. Steven knew that we were celebrating a birthday for one of our friends, and he made sure to have a bottle of wine chilling for her when she arrived....nice touch, and greatly appreciated! We ate at the key west style bar and restaurant on the property and loved it! Great food and one of the best bartenders EVER! (George). We took a walk on the boardwalk in the morning and saw manatees and loads of beautiful jellyfish! This was a great weekend for all of us, and we will definitely be returning soon!

Room Tip: We liked the Sailfish suite because you opened your door right to the sidewalk on the street. It is...

I was reluctant to write a review because I don't want others to find this quaint, historic place! Steven and his staff were incredibly helpful. Steven, the owner, met us to show us around per our request. After seeing the place we book 3 days immediately (wish we had more time!). Steven met us upon check-in, gave us some great ideas of things to do in Stuart and answered all of our questions. The rooms were homey and appointed nicely. We made new friends, fell in love with Stuart and will be back for a longer stay!

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw were great. We were on 2ndfloor toward the back and loved it!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Old Colorado Inn. The location is ideal, in downtown Stuart, close to restaurants, shopping, and the beautiful river walk. There is even a mini-park along the river less than a block from the Inn. We stayed in the cottage, which has a fully stocked kitchen, living room, master bedroom, a bedroom with a pull out futon, private bath and patio equipped with a gas grill. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with delicious homemade cookies. Every morning bagels or muffins, orange juice and fruit were delivered to our door. We made our own coffee on the keurig and supplied k-cups. We spent time on the veranda overlooking downtown Stuart and the river, reading books and relaxing on wicker rocking chairs. All of these features are enough to convince a person to stay here, but one of the most unique and wonderful features is the friendly atmosphere. Once you’ve interacted with the owner, Steven, and his assistant Susan, you’ll feel like this is your home away from home. They treat their guests as though they were guests in their house.

I stayed here recently while in town on business. I skipped the chain hotels for this charming inn and they did not disappoint me. The room was nicely appointed having recently been renovated. I will definitely stay here anytime I am in town.

Room Tip: The suite is wonderful.

We spent New Year's Eve last year at the Inn and decided to return this year with friends. The owner, Steve Vitale has added more rooms and a new porch on the second floor that has a wonderful view of Stuart. We had adjoining rooms in the newly remodeled building that were quite spacious and comfortable. You cannot beat this location in Stuart. All shopping, restaurants and the Lyric theater are within walking distance. Steve makes you feel right at home with a personal tour and refreshments. He has added an onsite manager since last year in case you might need anything. We highly recommend that you stay longer than one night, next time we plan to do just that.

Room Tip: All rooms are great
