I looked at the room once and had to request a refund. A refund receipt was provided but they did it offline, so the transaction was never refunded. Had to go through dispute procedure with the bank! Beware!

There must be at least 40 motels in Manitou Springs, and I'm guessing La Fon would be at the cheaper end. However, the rooms are a good size and have all the necessities - fridge, micro, free wifi, HBO. Sure, it is a bit old and dated but the staff are friendly and helpful and there is a heated pool.

Some of the stuff in the room is a little older, but they are working to get everything renovated and up to date. I have stayed there every time...

We checked in here after driving all around the Manitou area and finding that everything was full. Even with our Military discount, the room was $75. It was too small for a king size bed leaving us hardly any room to navigate around. There was no closet or even a bar to hang clothes. There was a small kitchen area...

I stayed and was almost eaten alive by bed bugs - Cost $118 doctor visit and ruined my vacation- reported to local health authority but received a reply back that since bedbugs are not known to transmit diseases and there are no public health laws addressing requirements for their control and removal they would not investigate or require action.

The towels had black stuff on them, the bed had cum stains, bugs everywhere, imcluding dead and stuck to the wall. We were afraid to not wear shoes in the room. The bathroom door was a sliding door that wouldn't close all the way.
