Cortez is the closest town to Mesa Verde and its location is reflected in area motel prices; however we found a comparative bargain with this Econo Lodge. It's basic accommodations, but rooms are clean and the staff we dealt with were pleasant. The complimentary breakfast was adequate. The room we had was quiet and provided a good night's sleep before... More

We arrived late and climbed the stairs to the 2nd story. Room was very clean and comfortable just old. Breakfast was basic with cereal, muffins, juice, coffee, yogurt and a waffle machine. Staff was helpful and pleasant.

Room was nice for an older motel. Management was very friendly and helpful, but when I asked that my room not be cleaned because I was staying for a few days, the maids went in anyway & rifled through my personal belongings. Must have been surprised when I came back after only a few minutes because I found a wet... More

Older place but was clean, comfortable & very convenient for our purpose of being in Cortez. The fact that they are pet friendly was a huge plus for us. As stated in prior reviews, the ice machine was not working, but the staff happily provided ice from their office freezer upon request.

The staff was nice and the room was OK, but seemed worn. All of the ice machines were still broken, as mentioned in other reviews, which makes it seem as if there is no intention of fixing them. And the bathroom is indeed tiny and retains all heat when taking a shower. I guess the positive side of that is... More

The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the towels smelled great. It's an older "motel," but I like being able to back the car right up to the door (lower level) for loading/unloading. The desk clerks were very polite and efficient. We'd stay here again. But, be aware of some negatives. Breakfast selections are limited and there's not adequate... More

I'm here now, the room itself is ok. Beds are comfy. Pillows are the size of throw pillows. There is shampoo on the sink, no conditioner or lotion. The bathroom is very small. There is no refrigerator, I thought there was supposed to be one in the room. There is no hot water coming out of the sink........ Seriously?? There... More

The location and view from this property could easily propel it to a 5 star review. But, when the grass hasn't been mowed, the trees are untrimmed, the vending machines are mostly empty, and all the ice machines aren't working for 3 days in a row in the hot part of summer, the location isn't enough. Just a bit of... More
