My dad and I stayed here when we were on the way to check out the sand dunes. It doesn't look like very much from the road, but it's clean and has the extra added bonus of being next to an old drive-in movie theater and you can watch the movies from your room! The only thing I was disappointed about is that we were told that the movie would start at 7:30pm. Dad and I went to grab a bite to eat and pulled up to our room at 7:19pm...only to find that the movie had already started. We only missed a few minutes so it wasn't a huge deal, but we thought we had a few more minutes...

Hi Summer G!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We strive to provide the best service and accomodations to all our guests. We apologize about the movie beginning a few minutes earlier than scheduled. We occasionally start a few minutes earlier than intended if it is extremely dark outside. We are glad that you enjoyed being able to enjoy the view of the movie from your room. This is a characteristic we are highly proud of. Again, thank you for staying with us and please consider staying again in the future.

We saw prior reviews and were about 28 miles away so we took the chance and absolutely loved it! Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Rooms were spotless - better than any other place I have stayed at for less than $200 a day. Fun concept, nice and unique! Breakdfast was very good!

I recently had my fourth stay at the Movie Manor. My wife and I had stayed at the Movie Manor in the last two years on our motorcycle. Movie Manor is a excellent destination on a motorcycle. Very biker friendly. On our resent stay we were worried that this may be the last time we could share the Drive Inn movie experience with our son. Drive Inn's may be a thing of the past as it will cost upwards of 50k per screen to change from 70mm film to digital projection. We were very happy to find that the new owners had upgraded to digital. This recent stay was a wonderful experience that my son will remember forever. We have stayed in many high dollar hotels in Denver and other big city's. My son said this was his favorite motel. We cant wait to plan another stay next summer. I want to thank the new owners for upgrading and keeping a Colorado tradition going into the future.

Room Tip: Each of the rooms have a theme around a famous actor. We stayed in the Yul Bryner room. I would reco...

The Movie Manor is a destination motel. The hole experience should be shared with family and friends. Everyone should have the experience of watching a movie from the comfort of a very clean and comfortable bed in a theme decorated room. the setting in the San Lewis Valley is unforgettable. Lots of history and wildlife in the valley to see and enjoy.

FUN Would go back and recommend to others, breakfast was pretty sad and even though it is free, would go elsewhere next time. However, I love this place and will go back over and over. Great romantic and quirky trip, also totally family friendly. I have been coming here since I was a kid.

It's all people that make or break the quality of the stay. Walking in and checking in with the night clerk – she took care of us. She pleasantly introduced us to the hotel and the rooms. The cleaning staff did a beautiful job preparing our room for the night and the next night. The breakfast staff prepared a beautiful repast. It was clean and smelled scrumptious. Finally the owner, who we spoke with on our departure was pleasant and appreciated our visit and comments to him about his staff. We are looking forward to our next stay.

From the moment we walked into the lobby we were welcomed and comfortable. Not an easy thing, considering we were four motorcyclist, all decked out in our black leathers. The gentleman that checked us in was warm and friendly, and joked around with us. We went to our rooms, but found out that we were not close to each other. They were quick and willing to rearrange us so that we could be closer. We ate at the restaurant next door. Not fancy, but food was good. Music was a little loud for holding a conversation, but they were accommodating in turning it down. This is one of the unique places you have to try. There are not many drive-in theaters left, and I doubt there is another where you can watch the movie from your room.
