The hotel is clearly showing its age; but, is clean, comfortable, and the smallest rooms are half the price of the name-brand hotels in the area. Overall, we are glad we chose the Dillon Motel.
Our favorite part was meeting one of the employees. He made us feel comfortable and welcome. He also introduced us to his wildlife friends which were fun to watch.
The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable. They were kind enough to allow us to check in late. When we arrived, we found that the last guests had smoked in our non-smoking room, and the staff were willing to find another room for us at the late hour.
We had booked the small cabin, but ended up with the large family suite --- a great fit for our family of four.
I liked that the pool has an 8' section. I'm 6'4" and appreciate hotels with pools deeper than the standard 5'. (Unfortunately, it was an usually cold week for August, and the outdoor pool was quite cold.)
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and found it to be a very good value.
