“Would not go back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2011

From the outside, this hotel doesn't look so bad, but the interior is in dire need of an update. The room we received was on the 1st floor (despite requesting in our reservation for a room in that was not on the ground level). The room was very no frills.

It was very hot in the room so we turned on the air conditioning and went for supper. When we returned, the room had an overpowering odour: urine. We were completely disgusted and upon investigating, we realised it was coming from the air conditioner. Our room, which was below ground level and with windows that didn't open, faced the back alley and obvious, someone had been using that as a bathroom. If you want to stay in this hotel, I'd highly recommend not getting a room on the 1st floor.

The hotel offered a continental breakfast which in a very small room and was very basic. On the plus side, there was free wireless Internet and ample parking.

This motel has what we needed: basic, reasonable rate, clean, close to tourist attraction.

This motel is located in the center of town right on the main drag, so it is convenient to other businesses and easy to find. It is an older motel, but the rooms were well kept up, clean and comfortable. It is your average Super 8, no frills, but no problems either. Pretty good continental breakfast, but the breakfast room was a little crowded. Price was reasonable compared to other motels in the area.

We stayed here for one night on our way back to Arizona from a week-long vacation in central Colorado. The staff was pleasant and friendly. Our second floor room was clean and relatively comfortable with the furnishings showing some wear. Free wireless internet and adequate continental breakfast. No mini-fridge or microwave which most chains offer nowadays. The motel is three floors with no elevator. This did not bother us but keep this in mind if you travel with a lot of luggage or have issues with using stairs.

Our room was on the east/non-parking lot side of the motel and when I opened the curtain, there was an unpleasant view of the building next door (no privacy issues as there are no widows on the adjacent building). Again, did not bother us because we were there for only one night but if I was to stay here for more than one, I would have wanted a sheer curtain for better daylight without the terrible view - the room only had the single blackout curtain. Request the other side of the building if this is important to you.

Huge supermarket and gas station right across the street. There are numerous restaurants nearby. Cortez is a good base for visting Mesa Verde National Park. We didn't have time for Mesa Verde NP but visited the Anasazi Heritage Center located about 20 minutes north near Dolores, CO (which serves as visitor center for nearby Canyons of the Ancients National Monument) which we enjoyed very much.

I would recommend this motel if you are just passing through or you are OK on a longer stay with no-frills accommodations.

The staff is helpful and cheerful. Our room was spacious, very clean and equipped with a coffee machine. The bathroom was immaculate, the breakfast huge.
The car park is wide and free. A grocery store is right across the street.
Not a big motel but a cosy place to spend the night after a long ride in the West.

If I hadn't been so tired, I would not have fallen asleep at this place. Why did the hallway smell like a Pizza Parlor? Doesn't anyone know how to use a vacuum? What is with the decades old bed covers and linens. Why is the bathroom so small? Breakfast is no good. I will stay somewhere else next time.

We arrived in Cortez late in the evening and figured we only needed a place to sleep as we were getting up early to spend the next day at Mesa Verde. When we checked in they said that there were only smoking rooms available. We have stayed in smoking rooms in Vegas and figured that these rooms could not be any worse. The rooms were so bad that my husband actually went across the street to the market and bought Fabreeze. We used two bottles of the stuff before we could get to sleep. Also the window in our rooms were screwed shut so we couldn't get any fresh air. The next morning the electricity went off in our room as I was blow drying my hair. Had to go to the lobby to notify them. (No one picked up the phone). Could not get out of there fast enough!!!
