When I went to check in the man at the front desk sat there and asked "what do you want?" I was put off by that but my boss made the reservations so i decided to stay. They say the WIFI is free but when I asked for the password the guy said it was an additional $20 for the... More

My wife and are halfway through a 2 month roadtrip and finally decided to try one of the really cheap, albeit lowly rated motels to see how they really stand up. We aren't picky and can't help but think the people writing some of these reviews must be. The room is everything we could need, comfy bed, clean sheets, microwave,... More

the owners obviously have no concern about customer service or cleanliness. the laundry/ice machine room was horribly filthy and rundown. one morning the office was not open at 7 a.m. for the scheduled continental breakfast- opened a half hour late. and only weak coffee was available- nothing else. the second morning there were some tiny packaged pastries from a dollar...

The motel is located about 15 minutes drive from Mesa Verde. It has standard facilities in the room, including a microwave, and a pool outside, which we didn’t use. Breakfast in the form of cheap muffins was tasteless and the receptionist not very welcoming but I’d recommend it if you’re looking for something cheap.

I feel sorry for the owners of the National 9 Sand Canyon, in Cortez, Colorado. They seem to be terribly poor people trying to run an old, worn-out motel. Here's what happened: I checked in, glad to spend less than fifty dollars on a room. The carpet was strewn with bits of trash, and the room was filled with flies... More

This place was listed on one web site as "hidden value." There is hardly room to park a vehicle and the room was cramped and unclean. The floors were uneven and I did not dare to go barefoot on the floor. There was only one outlet and it had multiple pigtails which looked dangerous. The refrigerator was not plugged in... More

We were very disappointed in the room! Maintenence has obviously been very neglected or not done there for years. The carpet is very dirty looking and worn out. The bathroom floor looked like it was falling in around the toilet. The curtains on the window could not be closed all the way. The walls are filthy. I have to be... More

We stayed here in June. We were travelling with 2 teenage girls so had two rooms. I felt uneasy about them being on their own as the door to our rooms didn't close properly. The plug for the air conditioning unit was hanging out of the wall and looked very dangerous. The bed was comfortable but the sheets were ready... More

This little, rather old motel, is run by a lovely lady who is very nice and quite helpful. I would have given an even lower score if not for her. So, for the "okay" stuff: It was cheaper than anything else in Cortez, that I found, ($45 & $55 based on one bed or two, plus tax = $60 for... More
