“Clean, safe, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

I read that this place was very clean but dated, so I gave it a try. It looks like a motel from the 50's and I thought I had made a mistake. I was wrong. I have never seen a motel as clean as this place, period. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They have got to be hard workers to keep their property in the shape it is in.

Spent six days/nights and have no complaints. Don't expect a breakfast or a hair dryer but an extra clean little motel to base out on a tour of the four corners area. Nice rooms for couples. Would stay again.

The White Eagle Inn is everything other reviewers have said...clean, comfortable, well-run, friendly, but not at all fancy! It is a little outside of town so expect to drive to dinner, etc. If you're going, book directly with the hotel; I paid $92 for a $69 room by booking through a travel site (h**tels.com). The pool was empty and looked like it has been so for a while.

We just stayed in the lodge for 3 days, and loved it. The lodge is behind the motel, very private, very clean, and has great views of the mountains. I've stayed in lots of condos all over the country, and this is one of my favorites.

We had a family of 4, and there was lots of space for us. You could easily have 7 ppl in the 3 bedroom, 2 bath lodge. It even includes a pool table! The kitchen included everything we needed, even a junk drawer, just like home. And a washer and dryer.

The owners were very nice and helpful, even loaning us movies for the kids. They recommended a family restaurant down the road that was great.

The location is perfect for exploring the 4 corners area. We went to Mesa verde, hovenweep, and the Anasazi museum. The grocery is right down the road. Durango is only an hour away.

I wish we could have stayed longer. If I ever come back to the area, this is where I'll stay.

And really, the added bonus here is the hospitality that comes with a family-run operation. Really pleasant people.

Judging from some of the negative reviews given to the White Eagle Inn, it seems that some were expecting five-star lodging when they saw all of the "excellent" ratings. Please understand, this motel is far from luxurious!

This is a family operation, not a big chain. The rooms are tiny. The decor is dated. The doors open with keys instead of keycards. When we arrived, the room was hot and the air conditioner was not on. However, by the time we returned from dinner (at a restaurant recommended by the owner) the room was quite comfortable.

The White Eagle Inn is NOT a modern motel. It IS affordable, clean, and comfortable. The shower was hot and the water pressure was good. The hosts were very pleasant and quite accomodating.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, clean, comfortable room in Cortez, the White Eagle Inn has it! If you are looking to be pampered, go somewhere else.

I had made reservations based on TA reviews - and agree that this is a great family run establishment. We were running late on the day we were scheduled to arrive - and I was worried that the office would not be open - so I called and they told me which room we would be in - said they would unlock the door and leave the key on the bed. The room was basic - but had "amenities" that you don't find in many chain places - for example, they had a power strip mounted to provide extra electrical outlets. Extremely clean and pleasant facility.
