“Stinky”
Reviewed 9 September 2011

My husband and I booked online because the price was good and the hotel had some favorable reviews and nice photos on the web site. When we entered the room we were met with a strange strong smell, we think cheap deoderizer. The room wasn't terrible but was quite run down. The bathroom, however, was terrible with stained toilet sitting crooked in a narrow ratty alcove. The shower was also very water stained and in disrepair and the whole area reeked with the stench of urine.

The owner said we could try a different, presumably newer, room but it would be $25 more. We found another room at the Rainbow Hotel just down the street and it was wonderful and clean and in good shape. It was the same price and also included breakfast.

The owners of the Dillon were accommodating in allowing us to cancel the reservation and they deserve credit for that.

We do not have an online reservation system. All of our reservations are done via the telephone and we talk with everyone personally.

We have had the same Housekeeping staff employed for many years. The rooms are cleaned and sanitized daily. Our cleaning products are purchased from a National Hospitality Supplier.

We try our very best to please and accommodate all of our wonderful guests.

Great place to stay, rooms are clean and comfortable. George and Joann are great hosts, friendly and very helpful. Sitting on the porch is so relaxing. Great fun watching the deer come for the treats. Centrally located to all attractions. We will stay here again.

we loved staying at this motel.
George was very friendly/helpful, and we got a long talk about languages, George learned me finnish (sytytystulppa = spark-plug).
George also recommended restaurants, and they were also good. Thanks George
The room (no 8) was clean, and that's the most important thing about hotels/motel, when we are on our road-trips.
And you can't beat the price, very cheap.
If we ever come back to Manitou Springs, we will be back.

I hope you are both doing well! I wanted to post a review for you guys to tell what a wonderful time we had here at your lovely Motel and to thank you again for making this vacation super SPECIAL for us. We would love to come back every Memorial weekend. We made a lot of good memories and couldn't have done it with out your help!! You guys are very special people!! Oh and we accidentally brought home one of your beach towels. The kids fight over it and call it "George's towel"!! Sorry about that! We hope you are having a great summer! Thanks again!

Room Tip: The rooms were very well kept and clean.
