“very clean motel with helpful and friendly owners. recommended”
Reviewed October 31, 2009

stayed for 1 night having driven around cortez for a few minutes and seen a few scary looking motels! for $49 we got a great double room which was spotlessly clean- much cleaner than a lot of the chain motels we have stayed in over the past few weeks. the owner is really friendly too and although our room did not have a fridge or microwave she offered to heat anything up we wanted or free ice to cool anything down. very impressed.

If you want a clean bed to sleep in at night, a shower w/hot water all the time, and service you'd never get at an five star place, you need to come here. We spent most of our time out and about exploring our surroundings. Just needed a comfortable bed to sleep in at night. It's in a great location. . . just miles from every attraction. We visited Mesa Verde, Arches, Durango, Telluride, Mancos, Silverton, and too many other places to mention. Instead of paying hundreds of dollars per night save your money to see the wonderful sights nearby.

Do not be afraid to stay here. Rooms very clean & comfortable beds. Lots of hot water for showering. One level hotel with parking out front. Very nice owners with the largest great dane dog I have ever seen. Safe and quiet location.

What you have in this town are the overpriced chains, including a big new Baymont where the snooty attitude rivals the Lodge at Jackson Hole and prices to match! Hello... it's a BAYMONT!! Also, there's an Econo-lodge with prices nearing the three digits.
On the other end are all kinds of filthy trashy dives costing $39/night. This is one of those rare properties in the middle. As with many of the other reviewers, the owners keep this place up and it's clean. They even replaced the windows with something more substantial which seem to keep out a lot of the road noise. However some of the traffic noise still does come in through the doors.

I agree with all the other reviewers. This is your basic old time motel, no frills, no problems. My only thought was that maybe we should've paid $10/15 more and gotten a nicer place that had a free breakfast. When you add the cost of breakfast, the $82 ($75 plus taxes) doesn't seem like such a bargain. We found all of Colorado to be fairly expensive, but $82 for a basic, Motel 6-type room seems a bit steep to me.

There are two ends to the main street in Cortez. On the east end are all the chain motels, and the prices are really high. On the west end are the locally owned places, and most are run down and pretty scary looking. The Tomahawk is on the west end and is notable for being clean and comfortable. But bear in mind, if you like frills this place is not for you. There is no clock, no shampoo, no fridge, no hair dryer. You get a nice, clean bed, a small TV and a clean bathroom, but really nothing else. There is an internet connection, but it is pretty slow. There is a TV, but no premium stations.

On the other hand, it costs about half of what the chains charge on the other side of town, so for the budget conscious, this is a great deal.
