“Friendly, convenient for Mesa Verde National Park”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We found this small motel thanks to other Trip Advisor reviews and are pleased we did: the welcome was friendly, the rooms were very clean and quiet and the owner gave us an excellent recommendation for an evening meal in the hotel next door. We didn't use the hot tub ( but that's just me, I don't like being in a jacuzzi with anyone!)

Quaint family run feel. Very welcoming at checkin. Clean room with all the necessities (microwave, fridge, wifi). Small town feel tucked into beautiful green valley. No breakfast but eating options nearby. 10 minute drive to Mesa Verde

After reading the stellar reviews of Mancos and this motel we changed a Cortez reservation for this place.Town did have a good restaurant,Olio's but not much else. Motel rooms tiny, most expensive room on the trip and i had to ask for enough towels. Never even a nice comment when we checked in. No can I help you get around,where are you from...just" $82, incuding tax" for this tiny room without handcream or breakfast or pool or working hot tub or anything else i expcted with this stellar rating. My suggestion is you are probably better off in Cortez.

Dear Foodlady55,

We are so very sorry that we dropped the ball on this one, I can assure you that this is not the norm and we will speak with our staff in an effort to avoid this type of problem in the future. I can assure you that we take these reviews very seriously. To address your complaint about the price, we believe that we are competitively priced to similar motels in the area. You will find many motels in nearby Cortez and Durango at $100 or more during peak season. Our most expensive family room is less than $100 peak season. We appreciate your complaint regarding the lack of towels and have now instructed our staff to place at least four towels, hand towels and wash clothes in each and every room. With regards to Breakfast, we would have to do as other motels do that serve breakfast and add $8 to $10 per person to the room rate to cover this cost and we only have 16 rooms. This option has been looked into and a decision was made not to serve breakfast. As a result of your complaint about the hand lotion, we have just ordered hand lotion and will be placed in each room on a regular basis, thank you for the suggestion. We do not have a swimming pool and do not advertise one. We do have a hot tub and try very hard to keep it operating at all times. The hot tub was closed the night of your stay as we just had the parking lot and hot tub area re-surfaced the morning of your stay and we had to keep the area dry and clean until it set. We do appreciate your stay with us and sincerely hope that you will give us another chance to serve your lodging needs when you are in the area. We promise to show you a different experience. Safe Travels ! Curt Henderson, Owner.

I was checking out some things in Mesa Verde and Cortez, and found this place to stay. I agree completely with Sue Cocker and DeDe (other reviewers whom I don't know). The owners/staff couldn't have been friendlier. They are well-prepared for dog owners, with extra sheets to protect their bedspreads in case you want the dog on the bed. They provide a water bowl and more(see photos). The linens are great, the location is great.

There was a group of students staying the night I was there, but the owners insisted several times that I should call them if there was rowdiness (which there wasn't). I think that the owners have decided to locate their more talkative groups in an area away from the other rooms, to avoid problems.

If going anywhere near this area again, I will certainly stay here.

Room Tip: Call the owners and request what you need: quiet, dog-friendly, whatever. They are very accommodatin...

Why would I EVER stay in Cortez when Mancos, and the Mesa Verde Motel have so much to offer. This is the second year I've stayed in this motel and it is excellent. VERY clean, comfortable, friendly staff and owners. My friend, who travels a lot for work, said this was one of the cleanest places he's ever stayed. Conveniently located in Mancos with great access to the race venue, Phil's World. Great restaurants, bars, bakery is all walking distance from the Mesa Verde Motel. I'm looking forward to staying here for next year's race as well!

What a great find. Had a warm welcome at 1 pm told our room was ready and might as well move in now. In fact it was the trip adviser review that brought me here. We wanted to stay close to the entrance to Mesa Verde which is only six miles. The reviewer said what a funky little town which it sure is. Had a fabulous meal at the Millwood Junction Restaurant one of the best on our travels in the states. I would highly recommend this place if you are travelling through and you want somewhere clean and comfy to rest. Why pay more for a lot less. The bakery in town is great for breakfast. I would recommend you go to the park entrance the day before and get tickets for the special tours. We luckily did as they sell out fast - not sure if you can ring ahead and book.

Room Tip: We had 17 and no traffic noise.

The accomodations for the price was fabulous. Clean well equipped non-smoking rooms 6 miles from Mesa Verde Park. Only $49/nite in off season. Only down-fall was that other guests that smoke gathered around a table with an ashtray and chairs outside my window to "bond". It got quite loud, and I couldn't open my window to get the nice 60 degree air without forgoing my privacy and having to smell the smoke.
Otherwise very nice place.

Room Tip: Ask for room towards front of property...it seemed the partiers were back in my corner.

Thank you DeDe for your kind review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your accommodations. Our goal is to provide a clean, comfortable, quiet room at a reasonable price. We are so very sorry that we fell short on the quiet part. We do appreciate that you let us know so that we can fix the problem for our future guests. We rented three rooms to some local construction workers for one week. They are very cooperative and we will ask them to "Bond" on our patio area and away from guest rooms in the future. We hope you enjoyed your trip to Mesa Verde National Park and will stay with us again the next time you are in the area.
