I am struggling with writing this review but feel that I must give a fair warning to others. I'm struggling because the gentleman who owns this property is kind and I do not want to insult him. But I could not, would not, recommend this property to anyone. Now that I've been there in person, I am suspicious of the... More

Stayed 3 nights last week. The rooms were very clean, however the bathrooms did updating badly.My husband got up early and was able to watch the owner feed a deer and get some pictures. The owner was very helpful about suggesting places to eat and visit. We would go back.

At the Dillon, our Toyota Corolla nestled almost perfectly into the carport adjoining our room, "Telegraph" by name. The fit reminded me of a time when people traveled more slowly in smaller vehicles, enjoying both journey and companions. The room was tidy, cozy and inviting; at day's end we sat in the antique metal lawn chairs outside our door, looking... More

My family of four recently stayed at the Dillon Motel in Manitou Springs. It was the perfect location to visit the Garden of the Gods and the Pike's Peak area. Our room was clean and the owner, George, was a great host. Thanks for making us feel welcome!

Owned and operated by the grandchildren of the original builder, this Motel is down to earth. Cute comfortable little old cabins which are clean and outfitted with comfortable beds. Great location and so economical. Can't wait to stay here again someday soon.

I stayed here for 1 night of a 33 night roadtrip. This is a cute little motel about a mile (easy walk) out of town. It may look old fashioned on the outside, but the units have been updated enough to make them comfortable but without losing the retro feel. The owners are a kind and helpful couple, and really...

We were recently in town for the Pikes Peak Marathon and I booked this hotel based on the reviews I read from tripadvisor. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners, who are the grandchildren of the original owners, and have a sense of pride and nostalgia for the place and surrounding areas unlike what you would find at any...

We stayed for 2 nights at the Dillon Motel. We were on business and looking for a bargain. The price is very low -- but as is generally the case you get what you pay for. There are a few newer units from the looks of things and perhaps the good reviews are about those units. The one we stayed... More

Thank you for your stay. Our mattresses were changed in the past 7 years, some are firm and some are med-firm. Our motel was opened in 1947 by my grandparents and we try to preserve a little history, as many of our wonderful guests return year after year because of that fact. We try very hard to make our guest... More

Have been a guest at the Dillon Motel since the early '80's pretty much every summer. George and Joanne have watched both kids grow up and now they are watching my grandkids. It is a safe, inexpensive and family friendly motel with the added bonus of the nightly feeding of the deer that stop by. It is centrallly located to... More
