While the rooms decor was somewhat dated it was exceptionally clean and the hosts gave wonderful service. The location was very quiet and we had a great nights sleep. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again on our next trip to this area.

This is an older motel that was probably pretty run down until the new owners bought it. They have cleaned it up nicely and are working to upgrade bit by bit. I feel it is a pretty good value right now but what really stands out is the family that runs it. Smiling always, friendly and helpful with lots of...

This is a very clean and well kept motel. It's family owned & operated and they made sure our stay there was great. We stayed in the three bed room, which was very spacious and comfortable. Totally recommend staying here.

My husband and I LOVED this little place! The room/bathroom/bed/fridge/microwave was IMMACULATE! Seriously very clean! It's at a quieter location, not in the center of town. The owner was SO friendly, as was the evening desk clerk, and the housekeeping staff. I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel to anyone, and if we're ever back in that part of the country,...

This is an older hotel but it is well cared for, upgraded, and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean and well arranged. We like having a frig in the room, no issue not having a microwave in the room (communal one is convenient). It is south and west of Cortez but easy access to town...

In a way i can't be disappointed for the price they offered. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was ok but a bit old fashioned and it had a weird smell. I got over it. The place was very clean only the tv had a bad coverage.

Super friendly, informative, helpful owners. This is a retro-style motel with modern conveniences. Positives: Quiet, extremely clean, comfortable bed, assigned parking by door, community microwaves (not advertised), fast Wifi, mini-fridge, free coffee/tea/cocoa and cookies in the office, better A/C than those of friends who stayed in a national chain in Cortez. There is only one floor, so no one is...

Thank you for that thorough review! So sorry about the TV. We have new TVs ready to go in but we have been so full, no opportunity to mount them. The basketball hoop is used a lot. I recently discovered (I'm a new owner) that we can adjust the height for players of all sizes. Again, thanks for the review...

Retro-styling with modern conveniences. Inside the rooms it's even nicer! Everything is arranged for your comfort. Our room was very clean and well taken care of. The folks who run the hotel are cheerful, helpful, and very professional. Service with a personal touch. Even though it isn't advertised, there are 2 microwaves available placed in common areas for guests to...

Pros: family-run; Very nice staff members; clean hotel room; well-stocked; plenty of things for kids to do outside; a relatively safe area Con: slightly south of Cortez, a distance away from downtown; outdated rooms; old-school television; Small bedrooms; overpriced for what is received

When we first saw the lodge from the outside, we were a little nervous, but the rooms are clean and comfortable, the beds good, and the service outstanding. The owner and her daughter do most of the work and offer all kinds of helpful advice when asked. Convenient location and pleasant surroundings make this a great bet at a reasonable...
