Cheapest city of any size would be Pueblo.
Tons of tiny farm towns on Colorado's eastern plains that are low cost.

Hard to tell cheapest motel for 1 month, maybe a google search would get more info, and quicker.

If you need a job you may want to look at areas that have jobs in your field. Unemployment is high in Colorado and it doesn't matter how inexpensive a place is if you can't find a job.

WHAT are some of the tiny farm towns on Colorado's eastern plains that are low cost?
don't know much about Colorado,looking for cheap towns of CO. even the small towns.
Anything in COLO within 125 miles of borders with Kansas and Nebraska, there are tons of tiny towns, low prices, but few jobs to speak of.

Use padmapper.com to find cheap apartment rentals. Suggest you google this: colorado monthly motel rates

How much general Info can you give me about there Motels there and How much they Cost for a 1 Month Stay or Longer. It doesn't have to be exact
just an estamate or so. Heard Pueblo was cheapest place to stay in Colorado. I HOPE it is, looking forward to moving to Colorado, next month.
Hotel rates depend on where you stay in Pueblo. I know there are monthly rate places but I am not sure how much they charge.

There are plenty of posts on Pueblo. Just look up Pueblo in the thread finder and you will see them.......

In Pueblo check the Super 8 and Rodeway Inn as they seem to have among the lower rates. One site stated Rodeway has at least weekly rates. Super 8 might too. Make them an offer you can afford for a month and see what they say.

If you'd consider an eastern Colorado town to live in, you might want to look at Sterling and Fort Morgan in the northeast. The unemployment rates in those places are lower than many places.

You might check the newspaper classifieds for rooms / apartments that rent by the month as well.

Sterling's paper currently has some small places for $300-400 per month. You could see if they'd go month to month, perhaps with a bit of a rent premium. They might not, but might be worth trying. Real Estate Rental & Sale - East Colorado Classifieds Classifieds

Probably Cortez. Maybe Alamosa.

No. Most any of the towns on the Eastern Plains will be considerably cheaper than either Cortez or Alamosa. Housing is not as expensive in Cortez or Alamosa compared to the Front Range or resort areas, but it is not cheap--especially compared to locally available incomes. Necessities like food and fuel tend to be more expensive in places like Cortez or Alamosa than in the Front Range metro areas, as well. There is really no place west of I-25 in Colorado that sports cheap housing, or cheap basic living costs. Wage and salary incomes in many, many places west of I-25 are lower than the Front Range metro areas and often much lower than many places in the remainder of the US--making for a pretty unfavorable affordability index.

FWIW, many eastern plains counties have low unemployment rates, in fact, I know a guy that just moved to Holyoke simply because he found a job there.

OP is looking for cheap motels in lots of states.
