Although a small size room and bath, it was clean and well furnished. We found this a good place to stay for 2 nights while we visited the Mesa Verde. The manager was very nice to talk to on the phone and in person.

Room Tip: Call ahead

Just returned at the end of May. We spent most of our time at Mesa Verde NP. It was a nice room for the price. The service was great. The managers were very friendly and responsive. Having a 'fridge in the room was nice. The TV remote did not work in our room and the room is pretty small. The motel is located on the Southwest end of town about 5 min from downtown. We would stay there again.

The White Eagle Inn is a great value. The room was quiet, clean, good sized, and the owners were very friendly, eager to please, and happy to give travel/local site advice. The bed was comfortable, although I would have liked a bigger selection of pillows (mine was a little hard, but it didn't give me a neck ache). It didn’t come with breakfast, but we did have a refrigerator and access to a microwave. I prefer a do-it-yourself breakfast anyway, and "free breakfast" offered by other hotels is built into room fees, so I saved money. We ate some meals at the picnic table, which had a great view of the mesas behind our hotel (no view from the room). The only complaint was the free wi-fi was very slow. The hotel is at the outskirts of town, 5 minutes further from Mesa Verde National Park (the reason I was there) than most of the Cortez hotels, but we saved at least $30 per night, so we thought it was worth it. Besides, that meant any place we might want to stop in town (City Market grocery store, restaurants) were on the way to our hotel on the way back from the Park. The best rated Chinese restaurant was on our side of town, so we would have headed there anyway.

Room Tip: The hotel only has one floor, so nobody above/below. All the rooms were the same distance from the...

Rooms were comfy and very clean. This would be a good place for larger families. The staff is very friendly and it is family owned. I felt like a guest in their home. Nothing fancy, but just good clean accommodations.

Room Tip: Reserve a room before arrival. They were completely booked when we arrived at 3pm.

This motel has only 12 rooms. The family at reception is very helpfull and can give you lots of information. It is a good base for exploring mesa verde national park. It is a short drive to the town center. The price is correct. The furniture is outdated, but this is the only negative point I can think off.

I was looking for a cheap place to stay while driving through the Cortez area on my way to the Grand Canyon.

The motel is located on the far west end of town, so it's a few minutes drive to the downtown area. The place is a Ma and Pop operation and the owners definitely cater to their customers. I was greeted at the front by a very friendly girl who checked me in and gave me a discount ticket for a local restaurant. I was also given a suggestion for a scenic drive to Monument Valley that turned out to be a great route.

So, I stayed in a single queen room. The room is very small, but the motel is also quite old and appears to have had some minor renovations, but is otherwise reasonably well kept up. Due to the age of the motel none of the wall plugins have a grounding hole in them, so many modern devices can't be plugged in without an adapter (the front desk has some if you need them). That being said, the plugins can be few in the rooms and you may have difficulty plugging in several devices. The rooms don't have a microwave or fridge unfortunately. The bathroom was rather spacious though with plenty of counter of space and the usual toiletries.

The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioner was nice and quiet.

The only issues of note: the carpet in the room was in need of replacement; it was quite dirty. As well, there was a rather large gap between the floor and the door that allowed a noticeable amount of light in by morning giving concern to possible bugs or other unfriendly guests that could get in through there (although I didn't see any). But otherwise the room was very clean and was very quiet during the night.

In short, it's a good place to stay for a night, but it may be a bit cramped for an extended stay.
