A bare bones hotel, the Econo Lodge is located just 10 minutes from Mesa Verde National Park and is conveniently situated near restaurants in the town of Cortez, Colorado. Outdoor entry is available on two floors with rooms providing one king bed or two queen beds. Rooms feature mini-fridges, microwaves and cable TV. Guests receive complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi. A small outdoor pool is available, although it sits next to the parking lot and the main road through Cortez and is not very private. Pets are welcome at the hotel. Guest laundry is available.

A very good alternative In Cortez and I really enjoyed my stay there. Nice room, clean and tidy. Has what you need including a pool and a laundry. Good location, Denny's is right across the street, but unfortunately no walkway in the immediate vicinity as far as I could see. Nice and welcoming staff too.
If I should complain about something it has to be the fridge. Firstly, there were problems with making it work at all (it was turned off and I experienced some issues with the power outlet as well). Secondly, just about all the shelves in the refrigerator were missing (very impractical). But I have a slight feeling that the hotel is planning to acquire new refrigerators. At least there was a stack of outdated refrigerators located on the hotel grounds.
But all in all, a good choice to a fair price, recommended.

Very nicely kept motel. Owner is very friendly. Front Desk staff very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Price was right for this level of respite. Has nice laundry facility for guests. Provided a fair breakfast spread. Would definitely stay here once more should I ever pass this way again!
