My advise, keep on driving, you have other Hotel choices in Cortez. We recently booked this Hotel through a Online search resource. Upon arrival we noticed right away, how dated and dirty place was. We asked to see the rooms before committing and registering for the night we asked to see the rooms. The first room was filthy and dirty... More

As a college student traveling across the country, I always look for the cheapest prices for hotels. I realize that I am not staying in 5 star hotels, but National 9 Inn exceeded my expectations. It was clean, safe (well lit), and I had a quaint little room. Additionally, the manager/owner was very friendly and accommodating! Plus its located in... More

I stayed here on a trip to Mesa verde national park. It is a clean place, not fancy or pretty but a place to rest your head. Nice flat screen tv. Very dated everything else. Nice front desk guy. Very helpful on recommendations of where to eat. There is a microwave and fridge in the room. It takes a long... More

The best thing I can say about this place is that... uhmm.. sorry.... nothing. We had reserved ahead through a third party booking service, thank goodness. When we drove up, we were appalled by what we saw. Trash all over the walks, beat up furniture in front of the rooms, construction materials filling the pool - not water. OK, so... More

the owner rude and pushy, the room was horrible, it smells, it was dated and felt unsafe, after seeing the room I declined to stay there and asked to refund my credit card which he did not and then proceeded to use my credit card information to charge more funds. I ended up in a long drawl out dispute with... More

The hardest thing was understanding the owner as you check in. The room wasn't too bad for just one night. There were no queen rooms left when I arrived so I took the king because I was tired and didn't want to drive further down the street. I probably should have...no continental breakfast- just toast or a bagel with peanut... More

We were late driving and we had a reservation. Handed the card over just to get to bed. It was nice that they got up to let us in. This is a family run business and the next morning when we went to check on the room rate - it was higher that I was told on the phone. It... More

This property definitely needs renovation. Dirty floors, minimal cable TV, no amenities other than free WiFi (worked fine) and free parking. Everything has been used well (which is not a positive statement). Dirt in corners of room and windows.

It was filthy, bug's on the pillow, hair on the sink .... and that is merely a sample of the room and the owner argued and insisted all rooms were clean ....while wavivoing... More
