The prices for this Econo Lodge are higher than most Econo Lodges, but competitive with pricey Cortez and this is a better Econo Lodge than most. They have new beds and carpets in an older and dated building. The Windows do not have a sheer curtain so it is either dark with the curtain drawn or open for everyone to... More

Stayed two days, had two rooms. Very nice stay. Nothing fancy but rooms were clean and staff were all very pleasant. Breakfast wasn't fancy but not bad for free/included. Five of us and there was something for everyone.

The management motto is to provide a "karma free" menu to all its guests. Andrew Waight More

It's been a while since I paid less than $100 for a room. This one was affordable, clean, and it's the first roadside motel I've seen to have flat-screen TVs. Best of all, I got a good night's sleep. When I told the clerk I was an insomniac (I already had a room between two other rooms, but the place... More

Its been some time since I stayed at one of the hotels where there room door is on the outside. We stayed on the ground level and should have picked the top floor. The Windows didn't have a sheer curtain so you had no privacy unless you closed them which made the room dark. The area is nice and there... More

Me and my wife and two daughters stayed here for 5 nights while we were exploring Mesa Verde, it is the closest hotel to Mesa Verde. The hotel must have just been remodeled recently, the carpet looked new and the beds were extremely comfortable. The American Indian style was nice inside the room. The pool was nice and refreshing after... More

Stayed here on a bike trip. It is an Econo Lodge. No frills and kinda dumpy. It was OK for a night though. And the place was fairly clean. There were two Chicklets on the bed, that turned out to be the pillows :-) $25 will get you to a Holiday Inn Express across the street.

Thank you for sharing your recent stay experience with us. I just wanted to clarify for all guests trying to book in cortez, that the Econo Lodge is priced in the range of 80 to 90 dollars less than the Holiday Inn Express. The Econo Lodge prides in providing a firm and soft pillow on each bed for our guest... More

Below is my original review of this hotel of my stay there on 05/14/2014. I originally gave this hotel a 'terrible' rating, but due to management making things right with me by refunding a part of my original charges, I changed my rating of this hotel to 'average'. Although I really do appreciate the effort that Andrew (the manager) made... More

The motel faces the mesa's, but is blocked by the businesses across the highway. It is located a very short drive from Mesa Verde National Park. They offer continental breakfast, but they did not have any type of protein. Which if you are planning on hiking at Mesa Verde would not be good for sustainability. The room was fair, but... More

I've stayed at this particular Econo Lodge a couple times before. I enjoy staying at this location because of consistency. Great customer service and room quality. I always come back because I know what I am gonna get. Swimming in the heated pool after complimentary breakfast was a great way to start my day!!

We were on a family road trip through Colorado and this was the only bad hotel experience we had. (Look at my other submissions and you'll see that I give mostly good reviews.) The kids were excited to use the pool after a long day hiking and climbing ladders in Mesa Verde. Unfortunately, they were scared off by a large... More

It is our goal to make every guest stay a memorable and pleasant one. I am sorry to learn that we did not meet your expectations. I will like to assure you that we did address the issue with the drank person, by having police remove him off property. He was a registered hotel guest at the property. The hotel... More
