We have stayed at the Tomahawk Lodge twice now and are thrilled to find it is consistent. The value is excellent for what you pay. It is extremely clean and comfortable with customer service at it's best. At home we sleep on an expensive Sleep By Numbers bed but were very comfortable on the king beds here with no problem...

The king bed was not comfortable at all it was hard! Got some insect bites on our skin! Carpet was not very clean! There was no facial tissue supplied and not enough towels to shower! Overall our experience with this motel was not a good one! Will never stay there again!

If I were coming through again and needed a room, I'd consider coming back, but only for a room in the back building. The room was ok for a short night, but the traffic noise in the front got us up early, after getting settled about midnight. WiFi had issues.

We dropped in late one night after a long day on the road. Its an old motor lodge, with true Americana charm, and was close to food and fuel. We received a fair rate for being a walk in, we're put in a clean and well maintained room, and had a fun chat with the owner. I will definitely stay... More

Clean and convenient, the room was perfect for a good sleep stop on a road trip. The owner was sweet and efficient checked us in for our 10pm arrival. Clean quiet room was exactly what we were looking for on our journey. Only thing missing was a fridge in the room.

Judging by the other reviews we just might had bad luck but i'm not very positive about this place. Very friendly staff but other than that an old tv with a broken remote and so-so clean rooms. There are better mom and pop places

We normally stay at mid-range hotels, but we weren't planning on spending more than 12 hours in Cortez (a stop along a road trip) so I booked Tomahawk Lodge for its price and generally good reviews. Most other reviews are spot on: older building, kind staff, basic rooms. The rooms had everything we needed, though guests might want to consider... More

We stayed at the Tomahawk for two nights. The woman who owns the hotel is very kind, attentive to detail, and helpful. The room was clean. The beds were firm, a bit too much for my taste, but workable. The linens are rather worn. The decor is basic 1970s with nothing attractive to boast of. The shower noise was immense... More

The only thing I can say nice is that it has cute tomahawks on each door. I rarely ever go to a motel/hotel/lodge without checking out the room first, but we were tired and the tomahawks were cute. It smelled dreadful. Nasty carpets, drapes and spreads gave the room a dead body smell. Of course we'd already paid for the... More

Hello, what a harsh review. I am so sorry that you did not come to the office - I would return a money if you really felt so bed even so I personally check all the rooms before renting out to make sure they are clean and pleasant. I tried to localize the time and room number you stayed, I... More
