    « Unique »

    Unfortunately I was here after the movie season but you can tell it would be a unique experience. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. The clerk was polite and helpful. Very reasonable rates. Good wifi

    « Movie from my room »

    When I heard that you can watch a drive in movie from my room while laying on the bed, I decided that I had to try this place out. I was not disappointed. First of all the owner Mike was incredibly friendly and hospitable. He and his wife make you feel welcome from the time you arrive to the time you leave. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The movie experience was fun. My only complaint was having to go up stairs. However, this is a 60's style Americana type of place to stay and is very nostalgic. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. The value was good. I would stay here again.

    « Standard motel room but with a unique view »

    Room was a standard motel room but was comfortable enough for one night. The hotel is a few miles from Monte Vista so transport is needed to get food. The best part for us is that the room comes with a view of the drive in theatre. They were screening Sully the night we were there and we could have watched it from our rooms (most rooms have an unobscured view of the screen), there is a volume switch in each room but we chose to drive round the building and do the proper drive-in experience. You tune the radio into the frequency they tell you and you're off. Excellent Breakfast was pretty good, usual choice of cereal, bagel and hot food and build your own muesli.

    « A Must See - Literally! »

    A slice of Americana everyone should experience - all rooms face one of two drive in movie screens, and guests watch from their rooms! Current films are shown approximately Memorial Day - Labor Day. Our room was large (recliners/easy chairs for watching movie), clean, comfortable, and breakfast was included in very reasonable room rate. A beautiful rural area in southern Colorado, within comfortable driving distance of a number of visitor attractions. The hotel is located on the edge of town, so nice and quiet for sleeping, and the night sky is breathtaking! The best recommendation? Yes, we would definitely go there again!

    « Unique for sure! »

    We visited this motel in 1991 with our kids and were pleased they were still open so made a return visit! I give it a 5 star rating because the whole concept is just so fun! The place is very clean, very Americana, very kitsch and a very nice staff! It is true.... you watch a movie through a huge picture window looking at a drive-in screen! The sound is piped in through speakers in the ceiling! In some rooms, you can do while lying in bed.... in others, you need to pull up the chairs! I would suggest to the motel staff to put ottomans in those rooms for a more stretched out comfort position! Love this place!

    « A real experience not to be missed »

    We stayed here recently on the way to thru Colorado to Colorado Springs. The proprietors were friendly and accommodating. The room, fairly standard but clean and comfortable and less expensive than most we have stayed at on our road trip. (Ours was the "Audrey Hepburn" room). But ... what a treat! Shortly after checking in and getting comfortable, we sat side by side, watching the drive-in movie through our room's picture window! (the movie, "Sully", was pretty good as well and, 1 hr 36 min, just the right length). One of the best, most novel experiences of our whole trip. Catch it if you can. (But note that the season for drive-in movies ends at the end of Sept.). Other notes: > breakfast is included, and "ok" but could include more fresh fruit. > workout room has standard treadmill, bike and elliptical and a universal but no free weights. > don't miss Fernandez Taqueria -- for some of the best, authentic Mexican food you've ever tasted! and prices very reasonable! (See separate review). Just a few miles on the other side of Monte Vista but note that the restaurant closes at 6:30 pm.

    « Hunting trip »

    We stayed at the Best Western Mobie Manor on 3 separate nights during an Elk hunting trip. We were forced to book rooms due to weather issues in the mountains. The front desk/owner were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was nice and comfortable. It featured a drive in theatre that you could watch from your picture window with speakers in your room to Listen to. The rooms were adequate for our needs and clean. The breakfast was also adequate with some hot food. It was a decent hotel for a small town, the only downside was it was a bit pricey but they were close to full each night so we took the room.

    « A lovely surprise! »

    We decided to check this place out because it was such a novelty ... a movie hotel! Drive in movies are so rare these days and then attach a hotel ... we couldn't go past. Mike, the owner, is a really special guy, interesting, energetic, interested in his guests and dedicated to providing the best possible accommodation experience. Our room was spotlessly clean, super comfortable and so relaxing after some big days of driving and exploring. They don't scrimp on anything... including lovely linens and towels. Breakfast was the best we've had at any motel along our travels. Great waffles, fruit, coffee, pastries, cereals and delicious toppings. If you're anywhere in this stunning area of Colorado, stay with Mike and Sangita, watch a movie on the big screen from your comfy arm chairs and have a wonderful night's sleep. Thanks Guys, hopefully we'll catch up again either here or in Australia. ??

    « Love Movies »

    We were tired and very suprised upon check in to find this hotel has big windows facing their own outdoor movie theatre with the sound piped into the room. We got our pajamas on, made some snacks and watched the movie out the window from our bed. What a fun experience. We slept well and the mountain view from the breakfast area was fantastic as well as the selection of healthy choices for breakfast. The staff was very friendly. Love it!

    « Awesome Hotel - a must stay here kinda place!! Big Rig parking also. »

    We had reservations and check in went smooth and easy. Our very fairly priced room was on the end of the far building but we had a great view of both movie screens (watched Nemo) you can listen to the audio in your room and choose either movie. The room was very spacious and clean with acres of parking space right outside - Big Rigs welcome here!. The bathroom was a good size with a powerful and hot shower. Wi-Fi worked excellent. It was super quiet location and we got an awesome nights sleep on the big comfortable beds. Breakfast was a really good spread including hot items with an attendant keeping everything re-filled and clean. From the breakfast room there is a very nice view of the mountains - must be awesome when there is snow up there!! Sad to leave and we will definantly stay here again if we are in the area.

    « Clean, comfy, and quirky! »

    We were traveling through Monte Vista on our way to Durango and stopped off for the night at Best Western Movie Manor. What a fun, fantastic place! The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated - with crown molding, comfy King-sized bed and a movie theme. (Each room is named after a famous star of the silver screen.) The best part - after sundown, we opened the drapes on our room's huge picture window, and watched a first-run movie on the big drive-in theater screen next door, with the sound pumped right into the room! Breakfast the next morning was fantastic, and the spacious dining room has spectacular views of the mountains. The staff is also friendly and attentive. A great place to stay!

    « You must stay here »

    It was our last night after travelling for 7 weeks in the US and we rated this as our best experience. Our room was called the Vivian Leigh, our room had pictures of collages of old movie stars, all rooms face the large drive-in theatre screen and the sound track is piped to the rooms. I think the new release movies are nightly. The breakfast bar was comprehensive and immaculate, not a thing out of place and food was immediately replenished. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back here for the experience.

    « Wonderful stay with extremely generous and helpful hosts!! »

    I was traveling to Southern Colorado with my dog to enjoy some time away. I had called to reserve a pet friendly room, but didn't realize I had called the main reservations number vs. the front desk of the Movie Manor. I arrived late at night and Mike was at the desk. When he told me what I had done and that he had no more pet rooms available since the hotel was full, I couldn't believe I had made that mistake. I thought I was going to have to find another hotel at almost midnight. Mike told me not to worry and he would take care of it. He got me and the dog settled into a room and we were able to keep the room the entire stay - and I was able to watch the movie from my room. The customer service that Mike and Sangita provided was outstanding. The room was very clean and inviting. I had a wonderful stay and will definitely go back again!! I can't wait for the season to open again next year!! Thank you so much Mike S. and Sangita!!

    « What a cool place! »

    I loved this place, it's so cool! I travel from Boulder to Farmington NM at least once a yr, and take 285/Wolf Creek pass way. A friend recommended this place, and I am so happy we stopped here! It's close to the Sand Dunes, so excellent idea to stay one night on the way. My 7yr old LOVED it! It's basically a drive-in theater which you can see through your hotel window, with the speakers in your room. Kid friendly movies. Clean and nice and affordable. The manager Mike and his wife were so super awesome too! They had some technical difficulties and the movie started a little late, but they dealt with the situation promptly. They were so friendly too!! Free continental breakfast in morning, nice area to eat, or you can just take back to room. Smaller place so close to car from room. Get a room on the 2nd level if you can. Play ground in from of screens for kids too. You can also park in front of screen if you want also. We will definitely be back and will tell all of our friends!!

    « 2 night stay in a wonderful motel »

    My husband and I were visiting CO to connect with long ago relatives and stayed at the Best Western Movie Manor. We booked our reservations on an online site and experienced some difficulties. The owners Mike and his wife were immensely helpful in getting the problem resolved. Our room was spotlessly cleaned and this facility has the added bonus of being part of a drive-in movie. We were able to watch the movie, "The Secret Life of Pets" from our room with the audio piped into the room. Breakfast was served and had many options both hot and cold. The breakfast room was large and spacious. Again, Mike and his wife were AWESOME and we can't recommend BEST WESTERN Movie Manor more highly.

    « Fun for all ages »

    I have been coming to the Movie Manor with my grandchildren for many years and we always enjoy the experience. From the playground when they were little to popcorn in bed as you watch the movie . Where else can you have this experience? Though the hotel is older, they have kept it up and the staff is wonderful. Really go out of there way to be at your service.

    « Entertaining, clean and comfortable »

    This is the 2nd time we've stayed at the Movie Motel. It is such a fun place to stay. You can watch a drive-in movie from the comfort of your motel room. The managers are kind & care about your comfort. The toilet handle was broken and she sent a guy to fix it immediately. A good breakfast was included.

    « Great get-away with an old-school drive-in feel! »

    Two friends and I stayed here while we were visiting yet another friend in Alamosa. We had been researching hotels all through the area and then we stumbled across this great gem when we broadened outside of our first search. We saw that it was a hotel with a drive-in! Seriously, how many of these even exist anymore?! It was great. Our stay was comfortable, we had a super clean room on a top floor. Only downside the first night was that the speakers didn't work in our room. So, rather than be deterred from the movie, we jumped in the car and drove over to the drive in part. One of us stayed behind and informed us via text that they came up and fixed the speaker right after she called down to let them know. We just stayed in the car. It was a great experience and it really wasn't that far from Alamosa, so we got to hit Sonic on the way back every night for cherry limeaids. lol

    « Excellent stay, clean and comfortable »

    On business trip and stayed at Best Western Movie Manor. Vintage property with loads of charm and a beautiful setting with stunning views. Room was spotless and fresh and property as a whole kept very tidy and clean. Watching a movie at the drive in from the room window is such a cool option! Having the million dollar view from the breakfast room through a huge wall of windows is a great start to the day! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be back.

    « On our way home.... »

    Our destination was not the Best Western Movie Manor, but we found it to be delightful despite its age. The clerk, likely the manager was very nice & helpful. He told us if we get to our room, we could leave the lights off, the sound for the movie could be tuned in & we could watch the outdoor theatre from our room. Nice idea, but we watched Monday night football instead.

    « Kind of fun »

    Overall and average roadside motel but well-kept and clean. Not many options in this area so if you are visiting the Great Sand Dunes park this may be your best option. Best feature - the movie screen outside your room is part of an attached drive-in theater still in operation! You sit in your room and watch the movie with sound piped into the room. Or you can walk to the theater or drive your car and admission is included. Nice breakfast - overall a very good option for this area. Restaurants 3-3 miles away.

    « Don't judge this book by its cover »

    Nothing to look at from the road but it was a really nice stay. Very clean and recently updated, the room was large, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast room was bright and airy and breakfast was up to the Best Western standard we are growing used to on this 1200 mile road trip. Staff were really helpful. Special thanks to Rayanna for information and water when we left. Owner Sangita was also very friendly - this was a nice one-night stop on the way to Arizona. Their feature is the drive-in movie theatre adjacent. You can lay on your bed and the sound is piped into the rooms. For us the screen was too far away to really 'get into' themovie, but I am sure many enjoy the free movie (it was 'Finding Dory). We ate at the (only?) Chinese restaurant in town but it was mediocre I am afraid, taste nothing special. We recommend this hotel.

    « Best Western Movie Manor »

    Clean and very friendly staff. Would recommend this motel if you are in the area. The area is well kept with plenty of parking. You can watch a movie from your room. This is something that is unique about this motel.

    « Only One »

    What can you say about the experience at a good motel with a drive in? You can stay in the comfort of your room and enjoy a drive-in movie!??- It's the best.- Grew up coming here to the drive-in and stayed a room a few times for fun and when company came to visit. Great to come back with our family now. They LOVE it! The new owners work tirelessly to see that all their guests have a superb visit. They were in the concession stand and at the front desk the next morning. Hats off to you! Can't wait to visit again one day.

    « "Great stay and we'll definitely be back" »

    I found this to be the "BEST" Best Western we have stayed at! First, when checking in we were greeted by the friendliest staff (Mike and Sangita) they made you feel so welcomed. The room was old, but kept very clean, charming and did I mention the bed was comfortable. The fact that myself, boyfriend and grandson could watch the Drive-In, Finding Dory out of our room window and hear it perfect from the room speakers and then the next night to watch Pete's Dragon at the Drive-in (like old times) surely put the icing on the cake. The breakfast was fresh and a well-stocked buffet style. This was the most unique and friendly place we have ever stayed.

    « We'll be back. »

    This hotel is charming. The rooms face a drive in movie screen and with the flip of a switch, we could hear the movie while watching it. The beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are a bit small, but this is an older facility. That said, it is very well kept and spotlessly clean. They've done an excellent job of updating rooms while preserving the feeling of a '60's hotel. Breakfast had many options, all the usual fare. The common rooms have also been updated nicely. Once we read about the hotel, we went out of our way to visit. It was worth the extra time and miles. We'll be back.

    « Great stay »

    Fun place to stay, property kept up very well. Very friendly staff. Beautiful area, wonderful farmers market. Definitely will stay again. Spent morning at farmers market and exploring surrounding sites. Breakfast buffet was fresh and the dining area has wonderful view of mountains

    « Our first time, my aunt has stayed many times since 1964! »

    I found this to be one of the best stops on our trip. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the sound with the movie in our room. Nice large room, clean and quiet. The breakfast was well done and stocked very well. This is by far the most unique place we have ever stayed.

    « Born in Monte but been gone since 1988 »

    July 25th on vacation. The check in, young lady Miss Bonner was very nice and happy to be there. I asked how long she worked there and was several years, that says great ownership about a business, great start to my stay with dad, mom, wife and 9 year old son. We got to see the new Star Trek Movie from our room, great experience. The view in the morning that my dad and I had of the hills and mountains was amazing. The breakfast young lady was awesome. Was extremely honored to stay here, everything was perfect.

    « great concept »

    We traveled late and were not able to watch the drive in movie. I would be happy to plan ahead and arrive early enough to watch the movie from the room. We had the Grace Kelly room, and I immediately stood up taller and straighter! The movie décor was very nice.

    « Fun, Unique Stop »

    Stopped on our way to Yellowstone. A stay unlike any other. Speaker in room ceiling with volume knob and on/off switch on wall, very good quality sound despite our room missing the volume knob. We could still adjust volume by turning the metal rod. Window for watching movie clear and large. Screen somewhat far from room but guests can use their room key to drive right up to the screen or to buy concessions from the drive-in's stand. Playground equipment also present at the front of the screen for kids or adventurous adults. :) Sunrise was beautiful and made me wish I had brought golf clubs and balls to play on the small driving range a little. Breakfast was filling and well-stocked.

    « Very Comfortable & Fun »

    We needed to change from a regular to ADA room due to increased arthritis pain and the inability to grip handles and such. The room was very comfortable and everything in the room was easy to use. The ability to watch a current movie on one of the drive-in theater screens from the comfort of our room was fun. The sound was great (not like the screechy/scratchy sounding speakers they used to have in the theater. Great option for a trip to Great Sand Dunes. My only complaint is that you need to drive into town for dinner, as the restaurant next door is no longer in business.

    « NOT as advertised »

    If you are going for the movie, forget it. I guess you have to pay a premium rate to get a room where you can comfortably watch it. The hotel is OLD. My hubby used to stay here in the 70s and it has had little updating, to judge by the bathroom in our room.

    « It has been a while »

    It has been a few years but my late husband stayed here one night just to see a drive inn movie from a motel room. The room was way too costly for the cheap carpeting and furniture. It was mostly clean but if I had been the boss It wouldn't had the smears on the windows and mirrors. The experience was not worth the money we spent. The date listed below is incorrect due to having only so many choices. I believe it was summer of 1998

    « Lovely fun place with friendly people »

    We stayed here one night in our road trip before heading to sand dunes national park. What a great place and we loved the drive in movie screens. You can watch from your room and pipe in the sound or visit the actual drive in, which is included in your room rate. As we don't have drive in movie screens in the UK this was something we have always wanted to do and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The owners were really lovely, very friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean, a good size, themed with different movie stars and there was a good choice for breakfast too. All in all a great stay and would highly recommend for something a bit different from run of the milk motels.

    « Fantastic place - especially if you like Drive In movies; one of a kind experience »

    This place was on my bucket list and my wife brought me there as a surprise for my 60th birthday. John and Sammy at the front desk when we checked in were fantastic! They treated us like Royalty. They made sure we had the best room in the place for watching both Driving Screens. The Rooms are named after movie stars. We stayed for two nights (both movies). On Sunday when we checked out Mike became a friend in less than 5 minutes. We are checking the movies and when we see a good one we will be back!

    « Living on their uniqueness and name. Ought to consider updating »

    We first stayed at the Movie Manor Motor Inn in 1989 as part of a cross-country family vacation. We selected this motel due to the uniqueness of being able to watch the drive-in movie from your room and have the sound piped into your room. Very cool. Amazingly, our daughter married someone from Monte Vista, thus we have repeatedly stayed here over the last several years. Each visit is more disappointing than the last. When we stayed there in July 2016, the room was not very clean. The previous guest's ear ring was on the table. Clearly, there was not a wipe down or even dusting between guests. Not good in fighting colds and flu. Also, in July the in-room refrig had the food from the previous guest. We thought we would give this place one more chance and stayed here this month, August, 2016. Continued disappointment. Neither one of the end table lamps worked nor the alarm clock due to not being plugged in. There was only one outlet on that side of the room and it was directly behind the bed. The two maintenance guys had to move the bed out and plug in an extension cord behind the bed to get the lamps and clock working. How in the world could this have happened?? Does not housekeeping at least turn on the lights in the room when they clean and would have noticed this issue? The toilet sounded like a high pitched whistle when it flushed and did not always shut off. Loud enough to wake up not only any guests in our room but probably next door and downstairs as well. The wall air conditioning unit made so much noise that it was useable at night.

    « Fun for families »

    One of the most novel places I've ever stayed at. The rooms are all themed by movie stars and it was fun to watch a drive in movie from our big hotel room window. The sound was controlled in the room and it sounded great. They do have a concession stand but we were too full from dinner to try it. The rooms are nice and clean, the beds and pillows were comfy and the customer service was excellent. Breakfast in the morning was very good and filling. Great experience for movie lovers. I would definitely return!

    « Fun place to spend the night' »

    We visited the sand dunes then spent the night here. Clean with helpful staff. The drive in movie was a fun addition to the room! Includes a hot breakfast. Good local places to eat. Would stay there again if we went back to the area and would recommend to others

    « Clean, affordable, pet friendly, and close to the Sand Dunes »

    This place was GREAT! Spotless room & bathroom. Comfortable bedding, easy check-in, quiet. Included breakfast was even nice! Having the Drive In theater there was icing on the cake. What fun! The room rate was very affordable and only $20 extra for our dog. It's about an hour from the Great Sand Dunes and about 10 mins outside of downtown Monte Vista. Perfect place to stay for families with pets or kids. I highly recommend!

    « Overnight from the Sand Dunes »

    This was a cute idea for a hotel. We came the Sand Dunes, stayed here on the way to Durango. Had a nice breakfast, great price, nice folks at the front desk. We got in right when the movie started, it was Star Trek, (Ghost Busters on the other screen). Wish it was a G or PG movie, having 2 young kids. We watched a few minutes worth, before it was a little scary for them. I brought microwave popcorn and twizzlers. The on/off volume was on the wall with a great speaker. The shower pressure was not very good, it was a drizzle, even changing the sprayer, none of them were strong. Breakfast was good, lots to choose from, hot or cold. I would stay here again.

    « What an awesome surprise »

    I'm so glad all of the other hotels were booked, forcing my hand to my first stay at a Best Western. This unique property was extremely clean and well managed. The staff was very personable and helpful, and our room was comfortable and clean (which is very important to me). Most of all, this is one of the most unique hotels in which I've ever stayed. We didn't arrive early enough to take full advantage of the drive-in movie available to our room, but it was still so neat! I'd recommend this hotel far above others in the area. It is a great value!

    « Accommodating to guests with pets »

    This was the first motel, Best Western and other brands, where there was a separate annex for pet owners and their four legged companions. Apparently, at one time, there must have been a RV park also on the property and the office and rest room block was converted into six rooms for guests with pets. Did not take advantage of the movie at the drive-in theater but what a novel idea.

    « Surprised by this cute motel »

    Ok, I admit it. I am a bit of a hotel snob. I don't like exterior doors or other aspects of motels. But we were tired and ready to sleep somewhere. Call me surprised! From Rayenna (I hope I spelled that right) at the front desk who offered to carrymy bags upstairs when I asked about an elevator (wow) to the family fun we had watching new release Star Trek from our room (they even have a concession stand--it's a real drive in like the ones of yore--you have stereo in your room and face the screen), I was pleased with each part. Finally, many places "say" they have hot breakfast, but this place offered many hot options. Clean. My son said it was the best place of the entire trip!

    « So Fun!! »

    This hotel was such a cool place for our family when we visited Great Sand Dunes. The property is in a very nice setting in the Valley with plenty of outdoor space for kids to run around. There is also a vintage playground near the Movie Screen that our kids enjoyed playing on. The motel was very clean, and the beds were comfortable. Before the movie started, we got dinner at the concession stand. The food was surprisingly good! The movie viewing experience from the room was so fun. The sound was great, and the view was excellent. Free breakfast the next morning was tasty, and the view from the breakfast room was beautiful. I highly recommend this place!

    « Quaint family hotel »

    The rooms , bathrooms and grounds were very neat & clean. Beds were very comfortable. Staff was pleasent & breakfast was nice. Great place for kids. I thought it was awesome to be able to watch a movie from the drive inn next door! I am very picky & had a pleasent stay all in all.

    « Unique Property »

    I'm not aware of many motels in the world where you can see and hear a drive-in movie from your room. This is one. Older motel but well maintained. Rooms were large, clean and had refrigerator and microwave . Wi Fi and breakfast at no additional cost. Motel also cost substantially less than motels in nearby Alamosa.

    « Bad Experience »

    I was so intrigued by being able to watch "Star Trek" from my room! However, the sound volume was so low that there was no way to hear the dialogue, so I wasn't able to take advantage of this intrinsic draw of the motel. The rooms were very dated; the carpet was filthy, with stains. The outside steps were rickety.

    « Awesome Hotel for a Unique Family Vacation »

    We added an extra night on to a 10 day road trip through South Western Colorado to go check out the Movie Manor and it was well worth it! Great Hotel. Clean. Staff was very friendly and the free breakfast in the morning was great! Our kids loved the unique hotel experience and the movie and sound quality in the room was perfect! We have recommended it to a lot of friends to check out on the ventures as well.

    « Clean and fun »

    Nice hotel with very friendly staff. Room was very clean and recently updated. We watched the secret life of pets from our room. My kids stated that this was their favorite place to stay so far. Breakfast was awesome and again very clean. Really liked staying here.

  • 5

    Awesome hotel. Friendly, professional and knowledgeable people; clean, spacious, well-appointed rooms, appealing decor, many amenities and a free movie at the drive-in theater. AND, if you don't want to sit in your car, you can watch the movie from your room!~ Complete with a picture window facing screen 1 and piped-in sound from the movie. Breakfast was tasty and included. I'd stay here any time I was going to be in the area. Prices were in line with other hotels in the area (summer in Colorado is not cheap). It's worth the money where other hotels we stayed in on this trip were pricier and not as nice.

    What a great time combining the best of yesterday's drive in movie fun with all the amenities of today. The BW Movie Manor is a one of a kind and a must stay in Southern Colorado. Stay in a clean comfortable room with all the amenities you would expect. And after dark watch current (not dated) movies right from your rooms window on the adjoining drive in theater screen. The sound from the movie is played right in your room. Not to be outdone the staff is super friendly and the complimentary breakfast is one of the best of any hotel of this quality. Worth going out of your way to stay here.

    « What a fun family stop in Colorado! »

    We loved our stay here. They have a very nice breakfast room too. We walked to the concession stand and got popcorn and took it back to our room. We would return. It was a really nice room as well. You can buy a Movie Manor t-shirt too.

    « Best view of the drive-inn theatre screen 1! »

    Best Western is the only place we stay when traveling. This place did not disappoint. Grounds were clean and beautiful. The room was spotless, the beds were comfy and of course the breakfast was great. Room 216 on the second floor was the very best to view screen 1 of the drive-inn theatre next door. Just flip the switch to hear the movie! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    « Watching Drive In Movie Unique »

    This is an old (from the 60s) hotel. The rooms are small but appointed nicely, there is even a refrigerator and microwave in the room. There are not many outlets available except at the desk but this place wasn't built for all of our current electronics. We ran out of hot water at 2000 in evening when I was drawing a bath. The issue was most probably an undersized hot water heater but this wasn't the normal time of day a motel would run out of water. We lost the sound in our room for about three minutes while watching the movie. We scrambled to try and tune in the sound on the radio but it was weak and full of static. The room speakers came on again as mysteriously as they went out which was a relief as the speaker in the room works really well and the sound was crisp and clear so that was the best way to listen. This motel is an activity in and of itself with the movie theater. As a motel it is average with average amenities, an average breakfast, way above average price and average staff.

    « What Came First? »

    I can't help but wonder, what came first? The drive in movie or the hotel? Probably at the same time. Really doesn't matter, because this is a pretty nice place to stay. Very clean, very polite managers, and just a peaceful place to spend the night. Every room has a view of the big screen except the annex. The sound is wired into the rooms and you can sit in chairs by the table and watch or lay on the bed and watch. Two suggestions. Make it possible to choose which screen you want to watch and, I am not sure why the restaurant is not open for business but that would make it nice as well. The hotel is a couple miles out of town, and not much eating choices unless you go back to Alamosa. All in all a very pleasant night and some great long distance views in all directions.

    « Worth it with kids »

    This is an older hotel but they've clearly updated the beds and bedding, which are very comfortable. Newer tv that appeared to have volume control so it wouldn't go very high. We're not hearing impaired, but it would have been nice to have it a bit louder. Kind of odd since you can listen to the drive in movie at blaring decibels. Hotel is an hour, give or take, from Great Sand Dunes NP. Our 3 & 5 yr old were with us and it really was cool to be able to see the movie from our room. Perfect view out the picture window. You can't lie on your bed to watch except sitting on the end and we had to use a chair as well but it was fun for sure. There are actually 2 screens with movies playing and they don't begin until later, when it's completely dark. Think fireworks show time, so 9:30 in the summer (despite telling us 9). We couldn't hear the other movie and could only see it from the corner of our room. I'm not sure how they figure out where to put you, because one movie is clearly for kids (Secret Life of Pets for us) and another definitely more adult (Central Intelligence). Whole novelty of the place would have been ruined if the kids couldn't watch the movie. Maybe they put families facing the one screen and adults facing the other? Anyhow, there's some wall switches to play the movie, or music, in the room and the sound is pretty good. Ours was a bit scratchy but you could only hear it during quieter parts and didn't take away from the movie for any of us. Same movies played Sat and Sun night but they were movies still in theater. You can opt to actually go to the drive in and watch from your vehicle. Other positives were a nice hot shower with great water pressure, full breakfast offered (packed on Saturday but dead on Sunday), spacious room, prompt help with any problems, felt clean, plenty of pillows. Some negatives were that our toilet would not flush repeatedly and the seat kept breaking off. No DVD player but perhaps that's because there's a movie out the window ;) The WiFi is terrible. It buffered constantly on our tablet and I would have to log back in frequently on my phone. Very annoying. Not many food options in town other than fast food. I would absolutely visit here again for the novelty, great service, and price.

    « Great time!! Movie was awesome!! »

    Rooms, breakfast and especially the movie exceeded my expectations! My daughters and I were really pleased. For the cost of a movie at the theatre, a great breakfast and the nice rooms, this hotel is an excellent value! We wanted to see "Finding Dory" and could not have been happier with the sound quality and the awesome experience of watching movie in the room! Unique and fun

    « Was very interesting, being able to watch a movie from your room! »

    We were in the John Wayne room, waited til the movie started, all in the comfort of our room. The movie was not to our liking, so we watched a few minutes and then turned off the sound and closed the curtains, never heard another sound. The breakfast was wonderful, with fruit, yogurt, waffles, eggs, bacon and lots of bread items.

    « A quick stop on the way »

    A nice little surprise. We would definitely stay here again. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were GOoD and the room was clean. GOoD selection for breakfast with plenty of choices. The front desk staff was helpful as well. Next time we will try to arrive in time to catch the the movie from the beginning.

    « Great Experience »

    We were looking for a destination midway between Farmington, NM and Denver and selected this location. First impressions are this is an older facility but were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms well maintained and very clean. Our kids loved watching the drive-in movie from the hotel room. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast bar offered ample selections.

    « One of A Kind »

    Alamosa was fully booked, but I found this little gem in nearby Monte Vista and was intrigued by Trip Adviser reviews, but Mom was skeptical.The hotel itself is very average, but the quirk here is a TOTAL game changer! The Drive in Movie Theater factor is SO cool! The themes throughout are all retro Hollywood and each room is named for a celebrity. We were in 217, John Travolta. (Vincent Vega) Right above the Arnold Schwarzenegger workout room. The highlight for Mom was the movie, Finding Dory. While it might not have been my choice, I admit it was good. And Mom LOVED it. We both VERY much enjoyed the whole experience and came away talking about this stay and watching the movie in our room as much as anything else we had done on our trip. Awesome unique hotel here! Check it out if yer in the area.

    « High point of movie was missed due to audio problems »

    The audio in the room went out 4 times throughout the movie. It took 5-10 minutes and a call to the front desk to get the problems addressed. The audio went out just when the climax of the movie happened and we missed the whole thing because we were trying to get ahold of the front desk. The plumbing was also an issue. The plumbing went out and the kids could not take a shower, brush their teeth, or even get a drink of water. Plumbing was out for over an hour. In my opinion, the room was overpriced for all the problems we had. The check out clerk didn't even care. She told us it was not her problem.

    « Good accommodations, good fun »

    Although it's otherwise a standard motel, the Movie Manor Inn's gimmick of viewing movies from the rooms was really entertaining. It's basically a motel situated next to a drive-in theater. The screen was pretty small but directly centered from the vantage point of our window. The sound system for the movie ostensibly has multiple settings, but ours basically had quiet and loud with no gradations between. There are two movie screens: the one facing the motel plays family-friendly films, and guests can view the other for free as a drive-in movie. The accommodations were comfortable and reasonably clean (although a previous guest's open Coke can was left in the mini fridge). The complimentary breakfast included a variety of hot and cold options, and our kids loved the waffle iron. Our family enjoyed staying here.

    « Nanc »

    Wonderful hotel! The manager and his son were very nice and made us feel welcome. It was very clean and comfortable, the free breakfast had lots of choices. I have already recommended to friends and family

    « Great novelty hotel »

    Clean and renovated. Kids were excited to watch the drive in movie {teenage mutant ninja turtles) from our room. Breakfast was good.Great discovery in what seemed the middle of nowhere. maybe needs more icemakers

    « A few glitches but lots of fun! »

    This place is worth the stop! With that said, there were a few glitches that would have been nice had they been fixed. When we came back from dinner, the water had gone out in the hotel. This is not the fault of the of the hotel just something that happens. Front desk staff was very nice about it and the water was back on within an hour. However, the audio to the movie went out 2 times during the movie. This is why people go to the movie Manor Hotel. I'm sure it was a minor glitch but let's get that fixed folks!

    « Fun experience »

    The hotel was clean and offers a neat experience of watching a movie from your room. Sangita, who helped us with breakfast and traveling directions, was extremely nice and helpful. :) The kids really enjoyed the stay.

    « Unique & fun! »

    From the outside, it doesn't look all that wonderful (except the giant movie screens, of course!), but the rooms were really great! I don't know if all the rooms have it, but I loved the entry of room 225 - a raised, carved-out space for all our luggage. If you have 2 beds in your room, I don't think there are rooms where you can easily watch the movie from the beds. However, Room 225 has a straight-shot view of a screen. The kids layed on the bed sideways to watch, and the adults moved the chairs to get a good view as well. (I would request a room with the best available view of the screen you want to watch when you call in your reservation.) The playground and the popcorn were both huge hits with the kids! The breakfast was great, with many options. Word of caution: I'm not sure how, but we somehow ended up with tiny burrs all over our floor. If you walk around the grounds, you may want to check your shoes before going back into your room - stepping in those things with bare feet is no fun!

    « Suprisingly Neat and Unique »

    We were hesitant to stay at a motel advertised as "Themed" by Best Western. However, we loved it. One of the cleanest hotels ever visited in 50 years of traveling by car. Updated rooms, great breakfast area and friendly hosts. A wonderful story of the man who build his dream. And surprise....a first run movie viewed from our room through one of the biggest windows imagined. This place is a motel and a drive-in movie theatre combined. We have experienced very bad motels and great luxury hotels and this is our first "themed" motel. We would go there again just to re-experience the fun, history and very good breakfast.

    « Love it Movie included. »

    To our surprise you get to see a drive-in movie in your room sound and all. Even popcorn. The hotel was nice the staff helpful food was good. Would stay here again. But remember it is a little hotel. Went down town for food the Mexican restaurant which was a hole in the wall, but the food was very good. So if you stay here it is a very small town.

    « Always fun! »

    Whenever we are in the area we always stay at the BW Movie Manor in Monte Vista. Where else can you lay in your hotel room and watch a drive in movie. It is an older hotel, but it is very clean and has a wonderful breakfast. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

    « Fun Best Western with In-Room sound fro the Drive-In Movie! »

    This place is a great relaxation point if you are "Griswalding" it through southern Colorado. We stayed here on our way between Mesa Verde NP and Teh Great Sand Dunes NP. It's a Best Western, so you should already know what you are going to get. What I have liked about Best Westerns is that they don't pretend to be more than they are. We rented two adjoining rooms for a night. Both were double queens. Sorry, no King adjoining a double queen or another king.All rooms face two different screens on which two different first-run movies play. I think they usually start at 9:00 PM. We could watch either from our room but some rooms are more favorably angled for scrren one and some for screen two. Of note, only screen one has sound piped into the room. The control is on the wall and is great. Screen two gets sound by either driving into the drive-in in your car, (as a guest it is free entry to either screen) or, apparently, if you have a computer, you can stream from the local FM station, I think 88.1 We watched screen one and ordered pizza from Pizza Hut. Sorry, it is the only pizza joint in town! Apparently there is a Chinese place that will deliver. The movies playing in June, 2016 when we were there were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Warcraft. Finding Dory was going to play the next night. Standard motel food full breakfast is included. Rooms were spacious. and comfortable. Outside entry doors to the rooms. Wifi is included and is pretty good.

    « Best Western Movie Manor-Outstanding!!! »

    This place is so unique. We were greeted by the owners, treated like family and got to watch a great family movie from our room. The breakfast was exceptional with farm fresh eggs, sausage, toast and many other tasty items. A great value for your travel dollar. We will be back, and bring our friends. Perfect for families with kids. The drive-in theatre is so retro, like going back in time.

    « Fun Experience, clean room, fantastic breakfast, prof Staff »

    It was really fun to stay in the hotel and watch the drive in movie from our room. Sound quality of movie was good and we could see the screen very well. Clean rooms and nice, helpful staff. The breakfast was really great and had lots of food options.

    « Quiet and clean »

    Coming from Great Sand Dune NP we had a break in Monte Vista. In general a good motel, helpful staff, we had a clean and quiet room. Free breakfast was offered in a spacious room. We did not watch the drive in movie too much...

    « Great Place »

    The Hotel is updated, the staff is friendly, and it's a great value for the money. The price of the rooms are reasonable and you get two different drive-in movie screens to watch current movies on. If you are in the San Luis Valley stay here instead of staying in Alamosa I bet you will have a much better stay.

    « Saved vacation! »

    The room was excellent. However, what really stood out was the staff. Due to their honesty, due diligence, and professional attitude they saved our vacation. They found my fathers wallet that had fallen out of his pocket. This had all our financial resources. This saved our vacation!!! I will definitely recommend this hotel again and if we are back this way there is no question we will know where to stay!

    « Better than expected »

    This hotel exceeded our expectations. The views were beautiful, the staff was friendly and it was exceptionally quiet. We didn't hear any of the traffic outside coming into the drive-in theater. We also didn't hear any foot traffic or doors closing. Amazing! Highly recommend for a restful night's sleep.

    « Fun to watch a "drive in movie" from the bed in our room! »

    My boyfriend and I are always in search of a unique motel. A friend of his turned us on to this one. Super fun to watch a "drive in movie" lying on the bed in the motel room. You just open the curtains, flip a switch on the wall for the movies sound and you're all set! Room was small but nice, clean, and had everything we needed--particularly the mini fridge and microwave. Location was nice--out in the middle of nowhere with a lot of grass on the property and a view of the mountains when you walked outside to sit at the picnic tables.

    « A fun Motel with a true treat for the whole family »

    This has been our second time coming here and we love this motel that makes you feel like you traveled back in time. Our kids love watching the drive in movie from our room and the service at the motel is super friendly. It has a wonderful location to explore the region and the mountain views were very pretty. Breakfast was plentiful with a good selection of cereals, pastries, oatmeal, Belgian waffles, fruits, breads etc

    « More about memories than movies »

    First, the room was immaculate. I mean, spic and span. We were there on a road trip from Denver, and had only heard of the Movie Manor. Stayed in room 208 - one of the prime rooms for being able to view the movie from bed. The speaker is in the room, and the sound is incredible. The bed was really comfortable! Breakfast was what you'd expect - waffles, fruit, pastry, cereal, etc. So here's the thing, the movie was "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." Now, we didn't pick this place based on what was showing, but if you're going to watch the movie, I'd stick with a known venue. Also, the concession stand was a little lacking - really helpful, but not full-scale. Overall, if you're looking for a quick overnight for the family, with the fun and kitsch of a drive-in movie in your room, this is the place.

    « Unique...loved it! »

    This has got to be one of the best experiences I have had at a best western. I typically stay in Comfort Inn's, Holiday Inn's, or A Loft/Element hotels, but the quirkiness of The Movie Manor had me driving 3 hours from home to just experience the place. The rooms were clean, the staff was super friendly. Sangita was an absolutely amazing hostess and very helpful with recommending a place to eat. One of my favorite things I saw here was the wall paper and the décor in general. The movie theme is just so friggen fun! Arnold Schwarzenegger Exercise Room? How is that not a winner! I stayed in room 213 (Richard Gere) and the view to the drive in theater was perfect. I laid back in my queen bed, turned up the sound and enjoyed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a way you can only experience here. I can't believe that anyone would want to change the décor, the atmosphere, or just the overall feel of the place. Breakfast was much more than I expected for a free hot breakfast at a best western. Coffee was actually good and I there was plenty to choose from. I have recommended this place to everyone since I have been back home. It's little places that are tucked away that make road trips worth the drive vs dealing with airport security and the headaches of screaming babies on flights.

    « Loved our spacious 2nd floor room! »

    For years, we have wanted to stay here but didn't have the opportunity until this weekend. Our upstairs pet-friendly, spotless, spacious room was great. We loved it! It was named Bing Crosby. It had 2 queen beds which were very comfortable. Watching a drive-in movie from our room was so unique. Husband went to the concession stand and even brought us back popcorn to enjoy while we were watching the movie. The breakfast buffet had a something of everything - waffles, cereals, juices, bread for toast, muffins, scrambled eggs, sausage and more. Looking forward to our next stay there! spotless and quiet, my mattress was comfy, and the bed and bath linens seemed to be brand new. I heard no noises from the highway or from neighbors. The breakfast options were fresh and plentiful.

    « All around great »

    Very clean and quiet room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of food choices and seating for breakfast. Manager Mike was very accommodating. We highly recommend this one of a kind hotel. Guests can watch the drive in movie from their hotel window and turn the volume on in their room. Way cool.

    « Room »

    Wished we could have seen the movie more clearly. Windows are scratched or water-stained. Would have liked an upstairs room that we had before, which made for a better movie viewing. Otherwise a nice room.

    « Movie Manor MR & RR »

    Nice clean motel and the bed was very comfortable...Being able to watch a Drive In movie was a great addition...Had to sit in chair to see movie (would have rather watched from the comfortable bed) but still was a great experience...When I left I asked the friendly staff which rooms where the best to view the screen from your bed and they stated rooms 207 & 208 so I will remember this when we come back to view the Sand-Hill cranes!! Good Time!!

    My pet-friendly room was spotless and quiet, my mattress was comfy, and the bed and bath linens seemed to be brand new. I heard no noises from the highway or from neighbors. The breakfast options were fresh and plentiful. Registration staff upon check in and check out were all very friendly and helpful. I wish more places operated like this one!

    « Nice stay »

    This is a special place, not very often can you lay in bed and look out a big picture window and enjoy a drive-in movie. Oh you can also do it old school and drive into the lot. This motel has been there a long time so the design in older but that's where it stops. Our room was VERY clean and the accommodations were very nice and modern. Front desk people were friendly and great on recommendations to eat in town. I would highly recommend staying here. A tip, avoid a room on the curve if you want a better view of the movie screens, there are two, showing different movies. For all of us who grew up with drive-ins, this was a blast from the past. We're planning on bringing the kids and grandchildren back for some summer fun! PS there's even a playground

    « Best Western Movie Manor »

    Clean rooms. Wonderful lobby and breakfast area. Friendly and helpful staff. I watched The Jungle Book from my room because it was snowing outside, but I know I had the option of going to the drive-in free with my room key; a great concept.

    Quiet and convenient to the area. This is a unique Best Western. There is a built in drive theater and from all rooms you can watch the drive in movie. There is a switch that turns on the speaker so you can enjoy the show or leave it off and watch the TV. It is your choice. Each room is named after a famous actor or actress. It is charming.

    « Great room and service »

    I was very excited to see the movie from our room. The staff was super pleasant, the room was nice and clean. Everything was nice BUT, don't try to watch the movie it is so so far away it is almost impossible to watch from the room. The speaker is loud enough, although not in stereo, and at times was garbled. Since the screen is so far away, and this particular movie was very dark it was impossible to read the captions and subtitles on the screen. Otherwise its a great room and very comfortable bed! We did not eat breakfast so can not comment on that.

    « Like staying with friends »

    It's always nice to walk into a hotel lobby and have the desk staff greet you pleasantly. At the Movie Manor, not only is the greeting warm and friendly, so is the entire service experience. Sangita and Mike are two of the nicest people ever. When I realized I forgot my phone charger, Mike loaned me one of his. The internet was down when I got there because of a community-wide service interruption, and Sangita promised to call me as soon as it was restored. I've stayed with friends who didn't treat me as well as they did. The motel itself is old, but in impeccable shape. The lobby is inviting, with fresh cookies and plenty of coffee and water. The breakfast room looks out over an open space and the mountains, and is a perfect place to start the day with a hot breakfast. My room was recently updated, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. It was a little small -- for one person it was fine, for two people it would be cozy, for any more, it would be crowded. Of course, the view from the window is of the movie screen at the drive-in, and when I stayed they were screening Batman v Superman. You flip a switch in the room to get the sound, which comes from a speaker in the ceiling. Just like being at the movies. Even without the movie experience, however, this is a great place to stay. It's little far from town so you have to drive for dinner or the grocery store (the room has a fridge and microwave), but it's quiet and pleasant. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time I'm in that part of the state.

    « Best Rest at THIS Best Western »

    I stay here a lot and sleep so very well EVERY single time! The pillow top mattresses will put you out and the rooms are not just clean and comfortable but they are QUITE. This is why you pay for a hotel room .... Right?

    Location is great! Fishing, hunting & hiking near by. Very well kept, large clean & comfy rooms. In spring & summer months u could watch movies from your room, drive-in is located right out your room window. You can see & hear movies in your room. Many amenities close by. Great breakfast! The owner's are very nice.

    « The pinnacle of a 60's motel. »

    We come to this Best Western every few years. It never seems to show any wear. The room was perfect. We needed a handicap room and asked for a walk-in shower. Perfect with hand rails at the right location. Very clean and no issues. Perfect. The customer service has been great. In years past there were problems. They have added a breakfast room and have a continental breakfast that match the best I've had from Hamden Inn. And the view while you have your breakfast is a vista of mountains and solitude. If only it wasn't a 5 hr. drive we would come more often. Can I think of a motel I'd rather stay at? Nope

    « Wonderful place »

    This is a unique and very cool property that incorporates a drive in theatre with an old school, very well-kept roadside motel. The room was fairly small but very adequate for the two of us; actually "cozy" is a better description. It was clean and the queen bed was extremely comfortable. The girl who checked us in was excellent and she had a great demeanor about her. When our room keys didn't work and I had to return to the front desk, she joked that it was part of their "get to know you" program. Really great way to handle what could have been an annoyance! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the free breakfast was also very good, with fresh-cooked scrambled eggs and bacon. I definitely recommend this little gem of a motel and hope to have the opportunity to visit again.

    « Stranded and treated like a queen! »

    I did not plan to stay here, but a snow storm came in and I decided to wait to cross the pass. I accidentally found one of the greatest hotel experiences I have had to date! The staff both night and day went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed, (Including scraping the snow off my car when I checked out the next morning!) I have already planned to return with my granddaughters this summer to make a day of Sand boarding at the Dunes and staying at the Movie manor for the movies and the hospitality!

    « Never seen anything else like it! »

    Watching a just released movie on the big screen with the whole family tucked into bed? Yes please!!! The property itself is well cared for and clean. And the staff was so friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. The accommodations aren't fancy but perfectly comfortable. If you are going for the movie, be sure you check to confirm one is playing as they are seasonal. Also, the restaurant adjacent to to property is seasonal as well. Oh, and since the movies play at a drive inn open to the public, there's a concession stand. Popcorn and a movie in my hotel room. Love it!

    « Great Place with wonderful hosts »

    Have stayed at The Movie Manor twice this year. Very cool place with the dual screen drive in theatre next door and speakers in the rooms.

    This is a unique hotel with a drive in movie screen view-able from the room and movie oriented decor.. The rooms are large, comfortable and well furnished. This is a great place to stop if visiting the San Luis Valley or en route across southern Colorado. Movie is a bonus!

    « Delightful Find »

    We loved our stay at this unique spot! We were in the San Luis Valley for a quick family Spring Break getaway. We had lots of fun adventures (Sandhill Crane viewing, frozen Zapata Falls, Gators Reptile Park, and the Sand Dunes), but we weren't expecting that the place we stayed would be such a delightful adventure as well. We really enjoyed this unique motel, being able to watch a movie out our room window! The staff were incredibly friendly and kind. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the breakfast was great. We look forward to coming back!

    « A novel concept »

    This hotel has a novel concept. Their theme is movies and the rooms have that decor, and they are associated with a drive in movie and you can watch the movie and listen in your room. My complaint with drive in movies was the sound and they had good quality.

    « Unexpected Surprise »

    We joined a group of nine people to view the Sandhill Cranes. The reservations were made through the group and we were so pleasantly surprised to find the motel with spacious, clean, comfortable rooms and a drive in movie to watch from our room! Mike and Sangita were welcoming and very helpful. We enjoyed our room, the abundant breakfast and the movies!

    « Rating Based on Location »

    I rated this motel based on the location of Monte Vista. The room was clean and comfortable, room service was very good, and the Breakfast Buffet got us off to a good start. We were traveling with a small dog and there was good walking/exercise area behind the motel. This motel is an excellent concept with a drive-in theater and piped-in sound, so the movie can be watched from the comfort of your room. We had a 3-day stay during the Sand Hill Crane Festival. This is our second visit...beautiful weather this year. The staff was cordial and accomodating...we will stay here again.

    « Visit during Sandhill Crane Festival »

    We enjoyed our stay at the Movie Manor during the Sandhill Crane Festival. We were traveling with our dog, Griffon, and they had a special annex for pet owners, which was nice.The staff was attentive and personal and the complimentary breakfast was more than adequate with eggs, bacon, waffles, bagels and rolls. We will stay here again when we are in the area.

    « Sand Hill Cranes »

    I would stay at this hotel again. My husband and I were there when it was a busy time to see the Sand Hill Cranes. TripAdvisor could not get a room in the actual hotel part but put us in the annex rooms a little further from the hotel. The room was nice and clean but next time I would request a room at the actual hotel because they have a movie drive inn that you can watch from your room. Our room was perfect for this trip. :)

    « Arrive as guests, leave as friends »

    Michael and Sanjita are an exemplary management couple. They went out of their way to help our group of photographers in so many little ways. They were very friendly and outgoing, you really felt like you were staying at their home. Their love for the hotel is seen throughout the establishment from simple things like fruit infused ice water available in the lobby, fresh baked cookies, and upgraded details in the rooms and breakfast room. We have stayed here several times and I feel like I made two new friends with Michael and Sanjita.

    « Comfortable, clean and friendly »

    I just enjoyed a wonderful weekend in Monte Vista seeing and photographing the Sandhill cranes but part of that was staying at this hotel. Just about 15 minute drive to the refuge so convenient but where else can you watch a drive in movie right from your room. Speakers are installed in each room to control your sound!! The rooms are spotless and comfortably furnished with water and snack provided. Mike is extremely accommodating, he even provided a wine cork so I could enjoy wine I had purchased locally. Thanks for a great stay. Anyone who stays here won't regret it. Oh and a wonderful breakfast buffet including waffles included!!!

    « Neat and clean »

    We had a great experience here. The rooms were neat and clean. That's a BIG plus for us. Inside and out this hotel was very well maintained. The Movie theme in each room is a cute twist. We plan to see the area in the summer as well. Many local attractions.

    « Amazing! »

    This has got to be by far the Best experience we've had while traveling...and we travel a lot! When we arrived at 11pm we were greeted by the owners who are very passionate about hospitality! Our room was heated already when we arrived and it was already 9 degrees outside. The room was immaculate and up to date. The restroom was extremely clean no mold or mildew and the shower curtains were clean! Everyday when we left for the day we always returned to a clean and fresh room! There is plenty of breakfast options and kept stocked so there wasn't any running out and the food was great! None of the food tasted like rubber or sponge. It was delish! If you go in the summer there is a drive in movie apart of it and your room looks out to the screen and can watch the movie inside your room while laying on the bed. It's awesome! This location is about 30 min away from ski locations. The owners are amazing and it's locally'll more than likely be greeted by one of them and I Love that! Pets are welcomed! Hands down best place!

    « Great service and family friendly! »

    Our family decided last minute to take a ski vacation. We wanted to stay somewhere affordable and within driving distance to Wolf Creek, Co. We booked our rooms online for 4 nights at a very affordable rate. We arrived in the middle of the night Monday and were greeted pleasantly. The rooms were comfy and clean. Every morning there was a hot breakfast, bagels, cereal, juice and coffee. The service was exceptional!! They remember guest's names and go out of their way to be sure that your stay is pleasant. This small town of Monte Vista is a great place to visit, beautiful views and close to a variety of national parks. When you go be sure to stay at the Best Western Movie Manor to experience a cozy and relaxing vacation!

    « Great experience »

    Checked in around 5pm. Really friendly and welcoming at check in. Room was clean and updated. Very happy the heat was on as it was 7 degrees outside. During the summer you can watch movies at the drive in next door from your room. They even have a speaker in the room so you can listen to it. Not in the winter unfortunately. Great hotel & experience. Only issue we had was it was Sunday. Our choices in town were Chinese or Dairy Queen. We picked DQ, which was good. Recommend.

    « Great motel! »

    We had to be in Monte Vista for a family funeral. We needed to rent multiple rooms. Mike the manager went above and beyond to take care of our family. He offered us the use of the breakfast area to meet with the family and share memories with family from out of town. They made coffee for us and provided some treats as well. In our time of sadness, it was wonderful to be taken care of by the staff. All of the rooms were clean and very comfortable. We would recommend this motel to anyone needing to stay in the San Luis valley. We would like to return at a later date to enjoy the movie theatre experience of this motel.

    « Christmas party surprise »

    We checked in and the receptionist (who happened to be the wife/owner) invited us to a Christmas dinner...turkey and all the trimmings. We did not realize that this was the employee Christmas dinner. Once we discovered this we were made to feel like part of the family and had a wonderful time. Am I glad that we went the food was great (amazing curry salmon) and great company. The owner, Mike, sat with us and told us his life story and how he ended up in Monte Vista. He and his wife were very friendly needless to say we had a wonderful evening. On to the motel and its amenities.. very nice rooms, beds have a pillow-top mattress, very nice thick towels in the bathroom and most important was the cleanliness. Breakfast in the morning was fresh and warm. The only reason I gave it 4/5 was no hot water in the morning for my shower (it was warm but not hot). If am traveling that way again I will stay here and if you are traveling that way (Hwy 160) you will have a restful night. We were there during the winter and the drive-in does not show movies. I would love to go there and watch a movie from my room.

    « Best night sleep at a Best Western »

    Beds are comfortable and rooms are quite. Stay here you will be back and it is a real value. never have had any problems staying here in 2 years, best value and comfort within 150 miles! During the summer I highly recommend a reservation, oh and enjoy the free drive in movies while you are here!

    « Great Service »

    Great service we stayed in an amazing room with great views and good heating with wifi and a fitness center. Didn't get to see the movie but the pitching green gave us something to do while we stayed. Breakfast was good but not a wide variety of food to chose from. The Motel is far enough to be away from the businesses of town but close enough to to be able to go eat out. Overall great service!

    « Great view of the mountains »

    We where very impressed with our stay their. We stayed their for four nights in October. We always had very clean room everyday. The breakfast was good, but they needed to change their breakfast menu every morning instead having the same every morning. We went to the bakery their in town and had their fresh pastries "fantastic" Could not watch the movies in the theater because they stopped showing because of lacking costumers at the time we where staying their. That is understandable. They did call me a week before we arrived to let me know about not showing movies. You will be very pleased staying their. We will stay their again. Everybody working their was very nice.

    « Best place to stay in Monte Vista »

    This is the best hotel to stay in Monte Vista. The hotel is at a drive in theater and that is pretty neat, the artwork is all based on traditional Hollywood Films. Good place to stay, clean, friendly.

    « Mrs. »

    My husband and I spent a couple of weeks traveling across the country. This hotel offered the best service and value of any of the places we stayed. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and professional. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a quiet, clean, comfortable room and a good value. The friendly service put it over the top.

    The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are very nice, bed is comfortable, breakfast was good and the atmosphere was enjoyable. Overall I would have to say this is in my top 5 of hotels I've ever stayed in!

    « Quality of service »

    The staff was very friendly and professional. The room was very enjoyable. The surrounding view was marvelous to say the least. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends. Truly a delightful and cozy stay.

    « Just great and different »

    Just spent one fantastic night at this charming, not 08/15, Best Western. Everything was clean, nice and quiet. Good hot breakfast with cereals, eggs, sausage, waffles, etc. etc. There is also a drive-in movie adjacent to the hotel, but it was closed for the season. The owners, Mike & Sandita, made our stay an unforgettable one. They do their utmost to make you feel comfy.

    « Still ok »

    The hotel was clean and comfortable. We only booked it because we wanted to see a drive in movie from our beds. I didn't see anything when booking that said the drive in was closed for the season so we were very disappointed. Not in the room or the quality, just that we didn't know we wouldn't be seeing a movie.


    If you are on US Highway 160 in Southern Colorado you cannot go wrong staying with the Movie Manor Motel. The rooms are quiet, clean and exceptionally comfortable. AND in the summer you can watch a drive in movie from the comfort of your bed. They accommodate pets without blinking.

    « Neat little place »

    Stayed here as it was on our way as we head west on our photo journey. Friendly staff, comfortable room, continental breakfast was available for us as we prepared for the next day's adventures. One aspect of this motel is the ability to watch movies at drive-in, which is located just outside and can be viewed when opening up the curtains I would stay here again

    « Weekend Trip »

    We love little weekend trips through southern Colorado,especially this time of the year. This was our second stay at BW Movie Manor in Monte Vista. Although both the drive-in theater and the restaurant were closed for the season, the spectacular mountain views that we had from our room and from the breakfast room with floor to ceiling windows were better than any movie. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pet friendly rooms are in a separate building with a very large grassy area for your convenience. We found a lovely little place for dinner in Monte Vista--The Sunflower Cafe with very good simply prepared food and a friendly staff. Our breakfast at the motel was enjoyable. Our room was comfortable and very clean, as was the bed & pillows. We will certainly stay again.

    « Not just your ordinary hotel room and a movie. »

    Good stop off the beaten path. Was lucky enough to speak to the owners, who really take pride in ownership, emphasizing customer satisfaction. A nice room that faces the screen of the Drive In next door. There are speakers wired in your room, so you can sit on the edge of your bed, eat some popcorn and see a current release. After being on the road for almost a week, just staying home, relaxing in a comfortable room and watching a movie was just what the family needed. Of course, we visited the concession stand before the flick, we had microwave popcorn packed but why use that when you have a theatre right there. Continental breakfast was good, not just heat up some already cooked eggs, tasty home cooking. Spoke to another couple at breakfast who say they always stop here, even though it's out of the way for them. Cannot recommend them enough!

    « Funky Movie Motel »

    Although I thought the room was a little cluttered I really enjoyed the movie themed room. The room was clean and our stay was quiet. Movie Manor is a little out of town so to dine we had to drive into town. The breakfast was ok with the usual fair.

    « Stay away »

    The rooms are very outdated. The only good thing is the bed was comfortable. The parking lot was being resurfaced and we were given a room where we had to carry our luggage a long way until we pleaded for a different room.
