“Great quality for the money”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

The rooms seem to have been recently renovated, so they look great. The carpet, furniture, and bathroom all look very new and clean. For what we paid, I was expecting less quality than what we got. Awesome value! It's a perfect place to stay if you are visiting Mesa Verde NP.

We had a really nice stay at Mesa Verde. After a very long day of traveling, we arrived there to check in. We were greeted by Barb Henderson, one of the owners. The office is connected to there home and there was a delicious smell coming from the kitchen. Barb was so kind. Our motel room was clean and very comfortable. When we asked Barb for a suggestion of a restaurant, she pointed right next door to the motel. The name escapes me now, but the food was terrific and the service excellent. When we came back to the Mesa Verde Motel, we were able to enjoy a wonderful dip in the Jacuzzi. We had it all to ourselves. It was a beautiful night.
The next morning, I accidentally left my bathing suit in the motel room. I did not discover it missing until we were well on our way to our next destination. I called the folks at Mesa Verde and asked if they would look for the suit~and possibly send it to me at my home address. They said they had that suit...they mailed it to me at my home~as requested. I really appreciate the wonderful service and thoughtfulness from the folks at Mesa Verde and I would recommend a stay there to anyone.

A good sized room for a fair price. Close to Mesa Verde. There is a hot tub and a covered BBQ area.The A.C. worked well.You need to go through the restaurant parking area to access the hotel. Mancos is pretty small. If you want more "action" stay in Cortez.

This motel provided a quiet, clean and comfortable respite after a long day of driving. From phone and email communications to book a room to check-out, I found the staff helpful and very friendly. We relaxed on a covered patio and enjoyed the hot tub. Not a big name chain but definitely BIG on comfort and service.

We stayed at MVM for three nights, using it as a base for visits to Mesa Verde, Telluride, and finally Ouray on our way north to Grand Junction. Mancos is the same distance to Mesa Verde as Cortez, only much more quaint and quiet. We were pleased with our decision to keep driving through Cortez! We were especially happy with the "family room", which offers two separate rooms separated by a door, with a TV in each room. During our three-week tour with the kids, we appreciated the privacy and the great rate.

The motel is kept scrupulously clean, and the owners are probably as friendly a couple as I have ever met. They have a personal stake in the place, as their daughter lives and works on the premises. They gave us the lowdown on how to use the gondola at Telluride, and overall were just really helpful.

Yes, the rooms are dated, but this wasn't a problem for us; everthing that needed to be modern was (free wifi, decent bath fixtures, nice beds). The climate control was provided by a window AC installed in the bathroom wall, which also gave sufficient white noise to drown out any highway noise we might have heard. A ceiling fan is also provided for the separate bedroom, recently installed when the owners realized the AC didn't really cool that room (esp with the door shut!). My only complaint was that the lock didn't work on the bedroom door, but that didn't cause us any problems.

There is a restaurant next door (we didn't try it), as well as a fantastic bakery (Absolute Bakery) and another restaurant (Arborena) a short block or two away. There's no pool, but there is a hot tub next to a patio decorated with flowers -- didn't try it, but it looked clean and pleasant.

It is slightly tricky to get into the hotel parking lot -- be aware that you need to go behind the restaurant next door and through its parking lot.

Room Tip: Ask for the family room if you are traveling with kids or multiple couples.

My very first contact with the proprietor was courteous, helpful, and friendly. When we arrived late, someone was there to let us in and even upgraded us free of charge to a double. (There are no kings.)

This is the best "Mom/Pop" place at which I've ever stayed. Upon entering our room, it smelled fresh, clean, and had a homey atmosphere. What really blew me away was that despite the circa-looking, vintage 1960's tile in the bath, there was NO MOLD whatsoever. We stayed two nights and the room was just as welcoming on the second night. Also, the proprietor suggested a tasty restaurant next door for dinner which was excellent. Rooms appeared to be all non-smoking, and chairs are available outside for comfort of those who do wish to puff.

The location is PERFECT for Mesa Verde, and even though it's located right off the highway, we heard no traffic noise. Also, the beds were DELIGHTFUL!

Drawback? The only one I can think of is that I did notice low water-pressure occasionally. The other thing is that dispenser shower-gels are used at both the bathroom sink and shower, which we didn't personally like too much.

I highly recommend this property. It's priced right, friendly, and CLEAN!!!

Room Tip: Call for reservations or book online.

We found the motel very clean, way above expectations. The gal at the desk very personable and helpful. Suggested a walk around the town to see the heritage buildings, we so enjoyed as well as the fabulous bakery, would stop there again.
