Activities/Attractions: Cortez, located in the southwestern portion of Colorado, has been called a "Gateway" to many things. One is a Gateway to Canyon Country, well named because of its close proximity to the Canyonlands of southern Utah. Another is the Gateway to Mesa Verde. It lies only fifteen or so miles from the entrance to this unique National Park. The rugged La Plata and San Juan Mountain Ranges, plainly visible from town, also makes Cortez the Gateway to the Mountains.

Cortez rests on that imaginary border between mountain and desert, close enough for high elevation views, but low enough to experience the arid environment of the high desert. It is a unique area distinguished by its awe inspiring scenery and rich ancient history background. Nearby attractions include:

  • ten miles from Mesa Verde National Park
  • ten miles to the south is the popular Ute Mountain Casino
  • fifteen miles to the north is the quaint mountain town of Dolores - gateway to the San Juan National Forest and Telluride Ski Area
  • within less than a one hour drive are the states of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah
  • within a half hour drive is the Four Corners National Monument

"Just a HUGE thank you! We had a long trip and many stays in places I was almost scared to shower. Your rooms are awesome and SO clean. I'm an office manager at Merry Maids and it felt wonderful to be able to completely relax for a night and bathe with no worries! The price was also one of the most inexpensive we had to pay during our trip and you were definitely the BEST!"

"You have a great place here. Wish we could stay longer. You are about the most accommodating proprietors we have ever met. Keep up the good work!"

"Thank you for making our stay so pleasant in Cortez. After spending the last 30 days in motels we can surely say by experience that your service is outstanding. Our room was neat, the bathroom sparkling. Rates are definitely reasonable. Thanks for your hospitality!"

"This is really a nice motel. It's a lot nicer than most of the motels I've been staying at in Farmington"

"This is the cleanest place I have ever stayed. And it just feels good!"

"We have only one complaint. This place is just too clean!"

"Very nice stay. It's rare to find a mom & pop motel this nice these days. We'd rather stay at a place like this than a chain."

"Pound for pound, this is probably the best value place we've ever stayed. Comfortable beds, very clean, good lighting, good prices ... nice place! And a mini fridge and real coffee maker in the room is terrific."

"This is probably the cleanest motel room I've ever seen."

"This is about the nicest place my family has ever stayed. It’s nice, you have a lot of free stuff, and everything works. And great prices! My son walked into our room and said, Wow. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends."

"We remember our stay in your motel very well and with pleasure. It was the most clean motel during our trip of one month."
