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

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.

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.

(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
