Travelodge Cortez
Ranked #14 of 16 Hotels in Cortez
Reviewed 26 May 2012

The hotel does not have wireless. The town has Macdonald with an excellent connection. Otherwise you could stay at the Orange Spruce Hotel next door. They got WiFi, but with a password.

The reason for staying here was to look at the Anasazi ruins at Mesa Verde. Mesa Verde was more impressive than Rodeway.

Our sleep was excellent. A a fridge is not standard, but there is an CRT TV (not flatscreen) and the picture was not good.

The hotel was sparsely booked, and I understand why. We are going on to Comfort Suites & Inn in Durango. We could easily have covered both Mesa Verde and the Silverton railroad from there. And they will have WiFi!

If you like coffee, there is only one bag to brew and the breakfast will feed you but not much more. The receptionist also takes care of filling up items and coffee.

We were hesitant to stay here after reading some of the reviews but rooms were scarce in Cortez that night and after talking to the owner and seeing the room we decided to go for it. The rate was reasonable (approx $60 first night with AAA - $55 second night) and the owner and staff were VERY helpful and accomodating. The room we stayed in had some minor issues (a loose knob on the bathroom, a missing drain stopper, cosmetic things only) but it was very clean and had an awesome shower. There was no smell of smoke (there were no adjacent smoking rooms) and there was no indication of mold or dirt (these were things previous reviews complained of). The owner told me that they had purchased the place in fall, 2011 and were working on getting the whole place into better shape - room by room. She felt that it would be another year before the job was finished to her satisfation. She seems very competant and very conscientious, I have every expectation that she will meet her goal. The room came with a continental breakfast that was standard fare and perfectly fine. The hotel pool is still closed but they had discounted passes at the desk ($3.50 I think) for the Cortez recreation center located around the corner that has an awesome pool with lazy river and slides etc for the kids not to mention all the workout equipment of a rec center. The hotel's location is close to city park and within walking distance of several places to eat. We found it extremely convenient and were sad to check out after 2 nights. Our next hotel on the trip was not nearly as good as this one! Our kids rated it "the best hotel EVER" although admittedly - it is the first one they stayed in since they were babies..

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker try to get a room with no smoking ones next to it.

Clean property at reasonable prices. We enjoyed our stay. The staff and management were very friendly and hospitable. The pool is closed but the price is right!

We would rate this property not great, but a good value after gettting a better rate quote from 1-800-4Choice for being Farm Bureau members than the manager quoted us earlier.
The pool was closed even though advertised as an indoor pool.
The manager seemed to get angry with us for asking about the indoor pool at check-in.
The breakfast was on the lite side and consisted of only coffee, juice, muffins, breakfast breads, and toast, but the mananger did keep it replenished.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor in the rear building are quieter.

Don't be fooled by the picture. It is not that nice. it was noisy especially with a family with several children living in the hotel. The pool was not heated, cold and not all that clean. The breakfast was pretty non-existent. They did have a computer in the lobby but you could not surf the net and had a 15 minute time limit - barely enough time to do email. Managers were not the most friendly either.

This hotel was a dive. Rooms were dirty - don't think they have ever vacuumed around the edges of the room. I hate not having fitted sheets on the beds - always come off during the night. Not what you would expect for over $100/night. Breakfast was skimpy - didn't eat there (probably a good idea based on the room cleanliness). Would never stay here again.
