“Friendly and Comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2010

The room was clean. It had all the amenities I needed, including a small refrigerator. The whole place has charming decorative accents, like curved arches and dark-grained crown molding, which add a cozy feel.

The motel was completely full the nights we stayed, including a family with a 2-year old and 3-week old baby in the next room. I didn't hear any noise, and I slept deeply!

The new owner/manager was incredibly friendly and helpful. This is a great place to spend the night after a long day on the road.

The National 9 Country Inn is an inexpensive, very clean, very consistent, small hotel, whose improbable location, in the out-of-the-way, quiet town of Dove Creek, makes it the perfect motel for "getting a little further down the road," even late at night. Many travelers of The Great American Southwest stop driving early and stay in the "bigger" towns of Farmington, Durango, and Cortez at the New Mexican side (for Mesa Verde and Chaco Culture National Monuments) or at Monticello or Moab on the Utah side (for Arches and Canyonlands). I prefer to stay smack dab in the middle of the two other choices, at Dove Creek's National 9 Country Motel, and for about HALF the price of motels in the other towns.
For those of you who stayed here before, the, um, "problematic" woman who used to own the place is gone, and the new owner, John, is doing a great job. If you call and leave him a voicemail, he gladly welcomes your middle-of-the-night arrival. The rooms are clean, tidy, and quiet. [You have a dorm fridge and a microwave]. I had my UV light with me on this trip, and the room was very, very clean: MUCH cleaner than my own house. [forensics teams use UV to spot stains, bugs, food and other smudges, and other gross stuff. There was none of that at this hotel. Thanks, John].
What this motel does NOT have: No pool. No jacuzzi. No conference center. Pets are allowed, but only in certain rooms. When those "pet" rooms fill up, no more pets. No room service. Just a great night's sleep on a really clean bed, in a small, beautiful town.
Its location is really handy, on that long stretch of US-491 (and later US-191) that has few other motels. The price is so low you will brag to your friends how little you paid in Dove Creek. It's clean. No dirt, no smudges or stains, no bugs, no bedbugs, and the owner is a really nice guy. Perfect. Enjoy the National 9 in Dove Creek the next time you explore the Great Southwest.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2009

Driving late from Durango to Monticello, we pulled in with skeptism. So many small motels are run down dirty and not that cheap. This place was great. The building is older but the owner is a warm and friendly widower who has owned it for 30 years. The room was small but very clean. Our shower appeared to be brand new and there were other small homey touches. The sheets were clean and crisp and the towels were soft. It was definitly quiet! You could easily press on for a chain motel at twice the price but why not support a small twon business?
We fell in love with our congenial host and his homey motel. We will plan our next trip around a night in Dove Creek just to support this man's simple honest endeavor. It was a pleasant surprise.
