This is not a luxury hotel by any means, but what a fun place to stay as a family on a southwest Colorado road trip! Our 13- and 14-year old loved the Movie Manor. After a full day driving and a stop at the Great Sand Dunes National Park, this was our rest stop for one night. Highly recommended if you're looking for something different and do not expect your standard hotel.
The Movie Manor is a 60's or 70's style (we called it "retro" but it's a bit outdated on the exterior, though they did have flat screen TVs in the rooms) traditional motel situated next to a drive-in movie theater. From your motel room window, you can view the movie they are showing at the drive-in. The pre-show music and movie track is piped into your motel room so you can hear it all. The rooms are very soundproof so you don't hear the sound in the room next to you.
The movies are first-run, they were showing Snow White and the Huntsman and Men in Black 3 this week when we were there.
The movie screen is a little far from the motel but it's still such a fun idea to lay on your bed and watch the drive-in movie, that it's easy to overlook that.
We ate at Kelloff's Restaurant next door to the motel because it's the only place nearby, and the food was really good. They offer a 15% restaurant coupon at check-in.
Our room was very clean, front desk service was good, and the motel parking lot was full by nighttime. Appears to be popular so book early if you can.
