I did not want to write a review when we first stayed as the owner told us he had just lost his wife. We stayed one night because of that..however the room was very, very shabby. The outside door offered little to no security...perhaps a closet door. The room was dingy and small. The "kitchen" had a tiny fridge w/half... More

Thank you for your stay. Our motel was built in 1947 by my Grandparents, and I try and maintain a little history. I did have a problem with a housekeeper that is no longer employed I try very hard to please our guests. A shower handle came off, if a problem advice me and it will be corrected, if something...

First of all -- if you want a 5 star hotel -- do not stay in Manitou Springs. Every motel, and I do mean old school motel is a throw back era experience. All the motels are quaint in the area, but I like Dillon Motel the best. Super friendly owner and staff. Clean accommodations and located near everything, Old... More

I am very use to staying in the Ma and Pa motels in Manitou. For a family on budget I was looking for wi-fi, a pool, air condition, microwave and fridge. I did much research and picked the Dillon because of its location and because it listed as almost 2 separate bedrooms for $64 a night. When we arrived the... More

Not sure if my first review went through, so am writing again. My wife and I stayed at the Dillon's a couple of weekends ago and found it to be very enjoyable. It is a great mom and pop place and is very homey. Mr. James, the owner, was so nice and caring and very informative since he was born... More

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

(Sir or Madam), Please accept our apology for your experience. We have investigated your finding and have corrected it, we think. The motel is completely surrounded by trees, bushes and the creek is just to our north by about twenty yards. We do have the trees sprayed monthly, and sometime the critters will seek a safe place and infiltrate 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...
