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

This property is very large, two stories, with a pool. Because we knew nothing of the area, except that it was between Hovenweep National Monument and Mesa Verde NP, we pulled into the parking lo to look into a room being cleaned. Difficult to ask housekeeper for permission, she did not speak English. Room looked OK, so called central number... More

We have stayed here several times and have always been comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. Will stay here again on our way to our winter home as we are snowbirds. They were helpful with restaurant choices.

When we are in Cortez, it is only for one night. So the room we get at the Cortez Econo Lodge fits our needs perfectly. The staff has always been courteous and very helpful and gives us the type of room we need.

It would have been difficult for us to be more pleased given: a very helpful, positive staff; a large clean room with good amenities; a fairly good breakfast; and a location convenient to Mesa Verda. Recent negative reviews do not sound like same place that we visited. There was a high school football team staying here on Friday night -... More

They have remodeled the place but I guess it is rather difficult to control the noise. We stayed on the first floor and whoever was staying above us was so noisy, it seemed they would come thru the roof at any minute! The room was fairly clean, and the bed somewhat comfortable.

Let me start with the positives. Room was large, bed was good! staff friendly, great price. However I would never stay there again. Carpet was filthy, lampshades torn and tattered, bath tub chipped and worn and toilet was so small that it looked like it came out of an RV. Bath tub was a race track full of little dark... More
