Last fall we stayed at the Dillon for two nights while we toured the area. This fall we were just driving through Colorado Springs and we preferred to stay at the Dillon in Manitou Springs again just because it was good and fun. It is an older but nicely kept up motel but they have a few newer rooms and this time we were booked into one of the newer rooms. It was roomy, clean, and all we wanted. Last fall we were two but this time we were four so we wanted a bit more room. The motel is probably one of the more affordable places to stay in a strip of motels along one street that leads to the downtown of Manitou Springs. It's at the far end of the street that leads to downtown so it might be a mile walk to where the shops and restaurants are located. However, there was a small diner just two minutes away in the other direction so we did not have to go far for breakfast. The motel provides coffee early in the morning and they also provide entertainment since they put out feed for deer and have them come in every evening and morning. I don't know if the deer show up in the middle of the day but they are fun to watch at a close up range. Thanks to the owners of the Dillon Motel for providing your own entertainment. We will continue to stay here should we be passing through again.
