Smallish older motel style rooms with microwaves, mini fridge and tv's. Free cowboy coffee in the morning and chats with owner George. Has a nice pool, easy access to Manitou Springs. Very reasonable price for the accommodations. I would recommend if you aren't too picky on how soft your mattress is.

Thank you very much for your stay. I try very hard to please our guests. My Grand Patents built our motel in 1947 and many people come back year after year for a step back in time. Our housekeeping people have worked here for a number of years. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and Manitou Springs. More

My family is looking forward to returning here next summer. The owner was such a nice guy. My kids loved seeing the deer walk right outside our unit. We stayed in both a regular room and a large room. I definitely preferred the large room; it was cleaner, and the beds were comfy. The shower in the regular room was... More

Glad you enjoyed your stay again. Sorry about the fitted sheet, we have 2 different types and the housekeeper apparently used the wrong size. We try our very best.

As others have said, if you're looking for a fancy hotel chain, this is not the place. However, if you are a family of 6 traveling on a budget and you're more interested in the experience, the Dillon Motel is awesome. We stayed in one of the newer large rooms. It was a good size for our family of 6.... More

This is a funky little cottage-style motel that the owner's grandparents built in the 40s. It's really cute, but honestly it could've been cleaner--a little dusty in the corners. (It didn't bother me but my partner was a little put off). Beds were a bit squishy. Fine for a night, very convenient to both Pike's Peak and center of town.... More

A unique experience & unique place! Loved waking up early & going outside for some great coffee & seeing the deer! George feeds them & it was awesome to see them! The view of Pikes Peak from the doorway to our room was amazing! We were there for 2 nights in September.
