TripAdvisor Rating


Yes, the BEST WESTERN Movie Manor offers the usual perks found at a budget-friendly chain property: complimentary breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and a fitness center, to name a few. But the coolest thing about this property is that it offers a drive-in movie theater—and you can watch movies from your room (via an in-room speaker system)! Add it to your road trip itinerary, stat, and visit the hotel’s official website to see what’s playing during your stay.

I Loved This Place!

by 111gregp

I suspect this place's drive-in movie/motel business model is unique in the world, but it shouldn't be! This is a great place. My room was well-appointed and immaculately clean. It had a microwave and a decent-sized refrigerator, so it'd be good even for a longer stay. The breakfast was decent. I always appreciate when a hotel without a restaurant makes an effort to provide some protein with breakfast (in this case, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, and yogurt) rather than just carbs. Given the hotel's fairly remote location, it's a nice bonus that there's a restaurant right next door. You almost certainly drove a long way to get here, so it's nice that you don't have to drive more to eat. (Of course this is contingent on the restaurant being at least OK; I didn't try it.) There is gorgeous natural scenery all around, but you would have figured that out miles before you got here. The property is loosely themed around movies. All of this would make the place great, but then you also get a movie from your room. I saw "Detective Pikachu." Not being familiar with Pokemon lore, I mostly had no idea what they were talking about, but it was still a trip. The hotel was inexpensive, too. Given the room, breakfast, and movie, it was probably my all-time best lodging deal. Come stay here so it stays here.

Million dollar views day and night

Best motel experience in years. Very clean and well-appointed rooms, fresh smelling, comfortable beds. Open the curtains on those large windows, and there’s a drive-in movie screen. Prop up pillows against your headboard, make some popcorn, and turn on the movie speaker. Traveling with children? Voila! Kid friendly entertainment. Movie theme decor is cute and kitschy. In the morning, enjoy a hot breakfast in the glass-walled breakfast room while enjoying a million dollar view of the San Juan mountains. Outstanding motel. Very well run with lots of attention paid to little details. Best motel in the San Luis Valley, In my opinion.
