A unique experience & unique place! Loved waking up early & going outside for some great coffee & seeing the deer! George feeds them & it was awesome to see them! The view of Pikes Peak from the doorway to our room was amazing! We were there for 2 nights in September.

Traveling on a budget and this fit the bill perfectly. The Dillon Motel has a lot of character, is in a marvelously central location and Mr. James is a great host. We stayed 4 nights in one of the newer, large rooms with 2 beds. Had a mini fridge and a microwave. Pool was closed but no complaints, this is... More

We stayed in Manitou Springs for four nights during our vacation to Colorado Springs. We chose the Dillon based off of trip advisor reviews. We were gone all day sight seeing and just needed a place to sleep, which it was great for. It definitely could use updating, as it is an older motel, but I have only very minor... More

The owner was great! I could tell he tries hard to take care of his motel, but it's an older property and needs LOTS of work. Ceilings were cracking, it wasn't clean, everything needed updating. I had bugs crawl across my arm when I was lying in bed. He needs to charge less, or consider a major overhaul or get... More

We stayed for one night on July 17th. We have stayed at the Dillon Motel a couple of other times as well. The rooms are always clean and the gentleman who owns the place is outstanding. Nice big pool and the morning cowboy coffee is great. Remember if you are wanting a chain hotel this is not it but this... More

We arrived late in Manitou and had trouble finding a place so we ended up here. We were pleasantly surprised. We have a family of 5 so we're always pretty packed into a hotel room. Not this one! It is really roomy--plenty of room for a roll-away. Also, there's a really nice block window on one end of the room... More

First, let me say that the gentleman who owns this place is a super nice guy. I guess that is why I waited so long to review this place.

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
