The Blue Skies Inn was our first stop having arrived at DIA and driven to Manitou Springs. I had got in touch with Sally to say we'd be arriving late and all was in perfect order when we got to the Indian Rock Art Room. We slept really well as the B&B is in a quiet location away from the...

Stayed here for three nights in July 2016 and had a great trip overall. The location is really convenient to lots of attractions. We did not realize that Manitou springs was a village of aging hippies and funky persons. It was quite an experience. The folks that run this B & B are really welcoming friendly people. Be aware that...

We just had our family from Denmark and celebrated grandads 90 birthday at Blue Skies Inn. All three rooms was fantastic and the service and kindness from Sally and Mike was incredible. Showing this place to our family was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them and they could not have been happier. We use it ourselves for our recreation as often...

The Inn is beautifully kept, peaceful, relaxing and quiet. With a ten minute walk, you're in the middle of historic Manitou Springs and all of its splendor. With a two minute drive, you can be soaking in cedar hot tubs or enjoying a massage at Sun Water Spa. It's a great spot for a wind down weekend!!

My wife and i returned to the awesome Blue Skies Inn to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. It was the 2nd time we've stayed there. We had such great memories and a wonderful experience on our 1st stay that I couldn't wait to go back. It was even better than I remembered it to be. Can't wait to return!

We were only able to stay here one night, our last of two weeks in CO, and it was the best place of all. The inn is tucked away in a quiet part of a busy area. The grounds are lovely and our room, Indian Rock Art, was fabulous. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated, and the bathroom was...

We stayed here before heading to Denver on business. We had the very lovely and quiet Indian Rock Art Suite, which had a lovely and soothing decor. It is also handicapped-friendly, so everything was very easy to navigate. It definitely had a very Southwestern appeal. Breakfast was delivered in a picnic basket by 8 am every morning, with an egg...

We had a marvelous time at the Blue Skies Inn. What impressed me most was how accommodating Sally was! She went out of her way to make things special for the eight couples we brought. Everything! Down to the last detail. I asked for an envelope, and she brought me one with a stamp! I've always said that "the way...

We enjoy group bookings, whatever the occasion. It's fun to post names on every guest's door so they can find other members. Since all of the Blue Skies Inn suites are individually decorated, it's amusing to see the room tours that guests give each other. Our staff was happy to arrange the snacks that were brought for get-togethers. Come back...

We stay in a lot of B&B's, and frequently use Tripadvisor, so we do not understand the great ratings for Blue Skies Inn. The best thing I can say is that the inn refunded our money for night two, and we were able to stay in a beautiful hotel in Manitou Springs. Our biggest problem was the stale cigarette smoke...

In over twenty years of being innkeepers, we've only had five guests with whom we chose to "break up" - that's when we suggest the guest might be happier at another property while refunding the remaining stay. We are kind about it, but it is never taken well. We knew that there would be an online guest complaint of some...

My husband and I stayed here while visiting Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods. We loved the room and the breakfast delivered right to our door. And what a treat to wake up in the morning and look out our window and see a Momma deer and her speckled fawn just relaxing outside in the garden. We also walked...
