Dillon Motel
Ranked #9 of 10 Hotels in Manitou Springs
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Staying at the Dillon brings back memories of traveling as a child when a lot of motels were family owned and operated. The motel is in a great location in Manitou. We stayed in a newer section, and the room was quite large and very clean. George, the owner, is a great reference for nearby food and activities. I enjoyed morning coffee with George and learned a lot about the history of the area. If you want a clean nice place to stay in Manitou then stay with George and his wife at the Dillon. Thank You George

This kind of place is what Manitou Springs is all about. Nice family run older motel. If you are wanting the ritz this is not it. But if you want a nice clean room, big pool and a friendly greeting then the Dillon Motel is the place. It was sold out every night we stayed that should tell you something. We stayed July 12th & 13th in unit 5 - Remember it is a older Motel but clean and a great place to lay your head

We stayed at the Dillon mid May. We decided that since we would be sight-seeing and visiting with family that we would not be extravagant with our hotel expenses. I was skepical when we reserved our room. I was plesantly surprised though when we arrived and the rooms were clean and comfy. The best part came though getting up in the morning and chatting with George and watching the deer in the parking lot. It was wonderful, I would most assuredly stay here again and highly recommend it if you are looking for a comfy place to rest your head and a hot cup of coffee and good conversation to start your day....

We stayed for two nights in mid may. As it was a bit off season the price was right and we had the run of the place. It was quiet, clean and had plenty of parking. I would stay there again. The hotel is owned by a friendly couple who seem to take pleasure in running the hotel.

The Dillon was nice, and clean! It's an older roadside hotel, basic, well worth the price. Loved the morning coffee waiting for us outside the office. George the owner was outstanding. We got a rock chip in our windshield on our trip out. We asked about windshield repair and he wasn't sure,but by the time we got back from a short tour of Garden of the Gods, George had found a place close by,and had called to find out their hours. Now that is service! I would recommend this to many of my friends, however not ones who prefer big chains and wouldn't appreciate the quaintness.

Last fall we stayed at the Dillon for two nights while we toured the area. This fall we were just driving through Colorado Springs and we preferred to stay at the Dillon in Manitou Springs again just because it was good and fun. It is an older but nicely kept up motel but they have a few newer rooms and this time we were booked into one of the newer rooms. It was roomy, clean, and all we wanted. Last fall we were two but this time we were four so we wanted a bit more room. The motel is probably one of the more affordable places to stay in a strip of motels along one street that leads to the downtown of Manitou Springs. It's at the far end of the street that leads to downtown so it might be a mile walk to where the shops and restaurants are located. However, there was a small diner just two minutes away in the other direction so we did not have to go far for breakfast. The motel provides coffee early in the morning and they also provide entertainment since they put out feed for deer and have them come in every evening and morning. I don't know if the deer show up in the middle of the day but they are fun to watch at a close up range. Thanks to the owners of the Dillon Motel for providing your own entertainment. We will continue to stay here should we be passing through again.

Thank you so much for your stay. We try very hard to please our guests and make them welcome. My grandparents built our cabin units in 1947 and we keep them very clean and try to preserve a little history. We also have new very large luxury rooms. We are centrally located to most attractions, shops and restaurants. Glad you enjoyed the deer and your time with us. Looking forward to your next visit and more chat.
Thank you. George and Joanne James, owners

Loved staying at this motel. The owners are friendly and helpful about finding places to eat and how to get to various attractions. The gentleman who owns the motel told us that his grandfather built this hotel in 1947! Deer visit almost daily, very early in the morning and sometimes in the evening. The rooms are in a "U" shaped courtyard, and are separated from each other by smallish, enclosed parking spaces. The rooms with 2 beds have a 5+ foot high partial wall that separates the beds, which were comfortable. The bathroom is tiny, with a very small stall shower; a very large person might have problems getting to the toilet or taking a shower; the bathroom needs some renno and/or TLC. The room does have a mini-fridge, microwave and sink. All surfaces looked clean, clean, clean. There is a TV with a cable/satellite box, but we didn't use it during our stay. There's a very nice, clean pool which we didn't use either. The location is in the less-trendy, less busy part of Manitou Springs, which we enjoyed. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back part of the court to minimize road noise.
