Attendant at desk was very rude. Room door was not secure at all lock was lose and handle almost fell off. Bugs were crawling on walls. Dead bugs were found under the sink. The sink was sinking in. Sheets were stained, towels were stained. Towels that were previously used were still left in bathroom.

I usually am not picky at all, Cortez in general and this inn is pretty sub par. For God’s sake please fix the electric outlets, luckily the appliances worked but the plug-ins I’ve brought alone was too small. The outlets was not standard. I ended up with uncharged personal devices. The floor was uneven and shaking. Obviously not clean but not terrible considering this is the cheapest one in town, see I can tolerate that.

Older motel . .
It was a cold night. The heater was small and did not heat the room quick enough. Has direct tv , batteries were in remote was dying. It’s an way older place, had to run the water because rust was coming out of the faucet and shower. Smelled of bug spray.. overall only good enough for a quick night to stay. 40 dollars a night .
