Nothing special. This is a standard Econo Lodge. The continental breakfast was a bit nicer than other ones we had at other roadside motels. (I think they had eggs that you can heat up and a few other little things.) Paid $10 extra for our dog which we found fair.

This is the only hotel Choice Privileges had in Cortez. Only stayed here cause it was night and white out towards farmington. Rooms were big and nice. Breakfast average. Cereal waffles assorted breads and pastries. Outside pool which was obviously closed. Good stay.

Sometimes when I book cheaper rooms I worry what am I going to get. Was very pleased with the large clean room. Nothing fancy. One night and on down the road. Comfortable beds, quiet area. Had first floor, by choice, could pull right up to. Denny's and gas station across street. Walmart very close. No elevators

Took the redhead on a spontaneous fall road-trip to sw Colorado to see the four corners, Mesa Verde and Anasazi Center. We decided not to camp and not to board the dogs, so we googled a cheap, dog friendly hotel in Cortez. Econolodge got the nod and we'd definitely do it again. For $67 (plus $10 dog fee) we got...

This was a great place to stay! We spent some time here exploring the area. The front desk staff were always friendly and very accomodating. Their laundry area was immaculate, and it was great to have those facilities so we could catch up on some washing. Definitely would stay here again.

Needed a stop on our way to Denver. Was a decent price. Outside is pretty non-descrip. It was a quick stay. Beds weren't bad. Some ants near bathroom. Bathroom was super tiny. Not much to say. We did not check out breakfast. Right along main drag in Cortez.

The mattress was sagging and I felt like I was going to fall thru the tub when I took a shower. The carpet was nasty. They did have a super Walmart across the street and they did havea few was machines on site,
