“"Motorcycle Friendly"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great "Mom & Pop" motel! This was my second stay at the White Eagle Inn returning this time with a group of my motorcycle touring friends. We used this motel as a base while riding the "Million Dollar a Mile Highway" and the San Juan Loop. Rooms are basic but provide all the necessities in an exceptionally clean environment. I gave an "Excellent" rating based on my experience at this motel without being influenced by other motels that may offer more amenities. f your looking for luxury this isn't for you. If you want a good night's rest in a clean and comfortable environment - stay here!

What you get is a small room, a minifridge, microwave an SD TV, and a really clean bathroom.
Very basic, but that's all that you really need out here.

Don't expect luxury, but expect a clean, air-conditioned room. A great stop to spend the night and recharge for other journeys.

Surprisingly, Cortez has an immense selection of restaurants (all of them were great that we tried) and you can get a nice list of them from the in room menu guide.

The property has a pool, but it wasn't in use when we stayed.

The proprietors were very nice and friendly...almost at the annoying point!

You can't beat the value at this motel. If you are looking for a clean, quiet, friendly place to sleep while you visit the local sites this is it. The owner was on site and very friendly at all times. Refrigerator in every room and a couple of communal microwaves available. We used this motel as our base for visiting Mesa Verde and the Cortez area. It's quiet because it is just on the edge of the main area of Cortez and it seems the patrons appered to be all travelors like ourselves....easy access to any restaurant you want.

Excellent clean motel with friendly and helpful owners. Conveniently situated in the town. Our one regret was that we were moving onwards after one night. All facilities - fridge, microwave, tea/coffee and the stars on the bedroom ceiling....!!

Nothing fancy, real people running the place and making it work . Very good location to visit Mesa Verde . It is a pity to see the pool empty but not everything can be upgraded right away . The picnic tables were great for a light dinner and even at breakfast !

Possibly deserves an "excellent'' rating. Very clean and well thought-out use of the limited space. Upgrades are effective. Great folks running it, nice location, quiet -- just about everything you could ask for in a properly interpreted old road motel. Coffee in the morning (no breakfast). There's no foofy facilities. No restaurant on site, but that simply doesn't matter; the town is well set up to take care of that. You'll get a good night's sleep in a well run establishment. The only reason I don't give it top marks is the rates: they are charging what the market will bear, and they should since Cortez has just about been "discovered" but you won't feel like you got a great deal. You'll feel like you got a fair deal, and that really is good enough, but in the end it's a small room with no frills. The wifi was a little weak in our rooms and some devices could not get a signal but others worked fine.

You probably won't find a better deal in Cortez, and you'll leave happy. So maybe that is excellent after all.

Room Tip: All rooms are probably about the same. No pool or spa that we noticed.

We stayed here for 2 nights on a roadtrip around the mid west. We were looking for somewhere cheap and comfortable as we were spending most of our time hiking and visitng Mesa Verde so we didnt need anything fancy. This place was perfect for that. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the owners were so friendly and helpful. The location is perfect and you can't beat the reasonable prices. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay here.
