There is a very nice couple that runs this establishment. A direct quote from my wife, "this is the first motel where I feel like the sheets and towels are actually CLEAN!" My wife is a clean freak and was very nervous about staying in such an older place. This was one of her favorites! When you get up in... More

Nice place. The couple that runs it is super nice! It was older, but clean and tidy. The location was nice, and checking in and out was easy. No breakfast, but close to the 'Silver Bean' coffee place which is a place you must see!

Cute little motel. Nice clean room. Quiet and pleasant. Owner very friendly and helpful. I got a very good nights sleep in spite of the neighbors sitting outside and talking till late. Coffee and sweets in the morning at the office.

We picked this hotel more or less at random (first one we encountered that appeared suitable for female travelers)--and were quite pleased with our choice. It's an old-fashioned "motor court", with direct access to outside (makes carrying luggage, cooler, etc. in so much easier!). Our room was in the corner, with a lovely shade tree, which made sitting outside very... More

This four rating is based on the value of $69 per night, far less than we paid for accommodations elsewhere that weren't as nice. Our room had a TV and refrigerator, no hair dryer or other amenities. The room was clean, the bed and pillows basic but not uncomfortable. The owner was very friendly but not intrusive. I wouldn't hesitate... More

Unimpressive on the exterior, this older motel has upgraded rooms and appliances. Everything is in good repair and functional. Only TV was not really up to date (but still functioned). Rooms are very clean and sleep quality was good. WIFI good also. Situated on the less desirable end of the main road in town which is also a bit further... More

Seasoned US motel users may not agree fully with this review so please make allowances for the fact that we are newcomers to this sort of accommodation. We stayed here for 3 nights and paid US$63, plus tax, per night, which was at the bottom end of the price range for accommodation we had used on this 4 week trip.... More

This was my third stay during the past two years. The rooms are basic motel Americana, circa 1980. Clean, pleasant enough. The operators are pleasant enough. But, compared with similar motels, we generally pay in the $50-$60 range a night. This one is in the $70-$80 a night..Not necessarily a deal breaker, but definitely higher priced than others. And there... More

We have stayed here so many times over the years. For the money it was worth it. The owners are very nice and respectful. They provide great customer services and information about local events and things to do. My last day wasn’t so great. I noticed the bed was getting old and hard to sleep on and our main issue...

The Tomahawk is a cool old style motel no chain here. Off the main drag of Cortez but still quite enough for a good nights rest. The owners are very nice and rooms are clean, prices are fair and cool old style neon sign out front! This place works for me when I come thru to mtn bike the Cortez... More
