we drove by this motel at 7:00 at night after we had made a reservation with hotel.com.
drove to hotel, not one single car there. checked here and found a bed bug incident. Called to cancel reservation and they would not let us because it was too late in the day. Do not use this hotel.

My father and I stopped in Cortez for a night en route to the Grand Canyon. We located the Econo Lodge on a discount travel site and thought it was a great deal for a quick overnight stay. Upon arrival, I inspected the hotel room for bed bugs and/or evidence of current or prior infestation. I do this every time I stay at a hotel. It was the first time I actually found evidence of bed bugs. While I did not see a live bug - nor did I stay long enough to be bitten - I found bed bug feces at th
e head of on of the beds, between the mattress and the boxspring. The feces was also in and around the bolts/pegs holding the headboard to the wall, and even in the tiny space between the headboard and wall. Bed bug feces (aka digested blood) looks like tiny black specks. Bed bugs like to nest in small, dark areas that allow easy access to sleeping humans. Upon discovery, I called the front desk receptionist who asked to come up and inspect the room. She was very apologetic and understood when I told her that we would not be staying the night. We left promptly and ended up getting a much, much nicer room at the Baymont Suites across the street, for a less expensive rate.
