“Unique motel”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

The first time my wife and I stayed at the Movie Manor Motel, the drive in movie was not available due to the season. There was a movie playing during the stay. It is a neat idea, but the rooms are a little far from the screen. Due to the distance, the screen is rather small compared to the TV screen in the room. Also, on louder passages of the movie, the in-room speaker tended to buzz and distort the sound.

How fun! Saw a drive-in movie from the comfort of our room with piped in sound. It is included in the stay.

Our room was neat and very clean. Not fancy, mind you but all the essentials including very good wi-fi service. It was a welcome respite after spending time at the Great Sand Dunes National Park.

There is a restaurant on site with a varied menu. Good food. There was also a complementary breakfast in the morning. ALL of the facilities were well maintained and very clean.

Upon check-in, we learned that there was a restaurant on-site with home style menu, plus a drive-in movie theater with 2 screens that we could watch from the picture window of our room. The rooms were wired for sound from the drive-in. The complimentary breakfast was the best I've seen which included waffles, eggs, sausage, cereals, juice, sweet rolls, coffee, etc. Room was well appointed with flat screen TV, recently remodeled, comfortable, clean, quiet.

I would highly recommend this motel.

This is the second time I've stayed here for the Monte Vista Bird Festival. It is the best and most convenient to the festival. Most people stay in Alamosa. I love the rooms with their unique movie motifs and the free movies are a gas to watch from your room! They played some great bird docs during my stay. Rooms are large, neat, and clean. The manager and staff is very welcoming. I intend to come back next year and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Took our 8 year old twins and our Bichon to Monte Vista for the weekend. Didn't know whether they would be as impressed with it as I. To keep it short...THEY LOVED IT!! The motel is upgraded, clean and charming with it Old Hollywood Theme-which is tasteful-not over the top. Dog and kid friendly. Lots of space and grass to walk the dog and a kids' movie playing: Mr Peabody and Sherman. Also staff was very gracious to call and offer to mail one of the kids' toy to us...even before w realized that we'd left it behind! Mike is a very gracious host. We will definitely go back!

This hotel provides an Excellent experience of having a drive in movie shown just outside your window! If you haven't tried this, it is a must do kind of thing! You can relax in your room, pull up a chair or lay in your bed, and you can go down to a regular old drive-in theater snack shop at intermission or before the show and get all your favorite movie snacks.

We had a great stay. The drive in Movie as part of the motel was an interesting feature. We were sad that the movie wasn't kid friendly as we had our 6 year old and 4 year old with us. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly.
We would definetly stay there again.
