Best hotel for the price with many new upgrades. The front desk staff helped me find all the local attractions and gave me valueable info for a better drive through the beautiful mountain roads to my next destination ! Thanks Econolodge.

We were traveling through on a road trip and needed somewhere to sleep for the night. The staff was friendly and quickly found us a room without having a reservation. The room was clean and big. They did have a breakfast but it only consisted of drinks, cereal, toast, and waffles. It's a cheap stay but gets the job done.... More

I had a great stay! It was nice and quiet! The room was clean, with a huge comfortable bed! It was close to everything. The staff were very professional, and were very helpful! I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Stayed two nights in Oct 2014; came back from Mesa Verde sightseeing and toilet had overflowed with laundry soap from the laundry room which was next door to ours (which was one of the few wheelchair accessible rooms). Desk staff was prompt and nice about cleaning it up though. No microwave, but there was a safe(!) for valuables -- we're... More

I think we were in a newly refurnished room. Very nice, best price of all places we stayed. Got a good parking space, new carpeting, king size bed. Easy check in. I was up early and full breakfast wasnt out yet. It was a Monday night, was quiet.

We stayed at the Econo Lodge in Cortez, Co for two nights in October. Though the room was shabby, it seemed well cleaned. However, when we woke up we had bites all over. I'm quite certain they were from bed bugs. This is a hotel I would drive right by. It will save you from doing a lot of laundry... More

During the first 15 min, I checked in (reservation was reserved with choice privileges points-free). We were given a room on parking lot level on west end. You couldn't. Park at your door on that end; asked for a room on the east side; was told none available; did not seem to want to be helpful. Our room was #128... More

I wouldn't stay here again. Dirty carpets, dirty shower, mold and peeling paint on bathroom walls, light fixture in bathroom missing it's cover so the fan shows, stained bedspread. Don't be fooled by the pictures online. They were definitely taken when the rooms had new carpet and linens. If I hadn't pulled in late I'd have found someplace else. Four... More

Anyone that gives this more than one star (unable to give a quarter star) must be accustomed to sleeping in their car. Poor guy checking people in was wore out. Horrible bedding, parking issues, dirty, unkept and wore out. We booked on Choice app on while traveling and got in just at sundown. Can't tell you how much to avoid... More

It took a minute to title this post, but it is accurate. I've been in hotels that I didn't feel really safe in - but I wasn't overly concerned about safety at the Cortez Econo Lodge. It does have outside room entrances, which generally have higher crime rates, but Cortez is a relatively small community so the odds of issues... More
