“It's not the outside that counts..”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

We were transporting a golden retriever from a rescue in SLC, down to Albuquerque and this was one of the few decent properties in Cortez that accepted pets. The property was nice on the outside, but I just wasn't thrilled with the high room windows. All and all, it just didn't look worth what we were going to pay for the night's stay. But, with the pup with us, our choices were limited. When we checked in, they gave us a nice, quiet room tucked in the corner behind the swimming pool. The room was fabulous....and it was a "pet" room! It was spacious and very clean, with a very comfortable bed, nice tv and even a refrigerator. There was a grassy area in the middle of the parking lot, for our pup's convenience. And breakfast was great with scrambled eggs, sausage...the works! Staff was very helpful. If staying in Cortez again, this will definitely be the place!

We stayed two nights at this property in order to go to Mesa Verde National Park but also to have a look around the town. The hotel is well placed in the central park of town so you can walk to restaurants and bars. The hotel had a great breakfast which was included in the room rate. Our room was spacious and clean. The staff we encountered were helpful and friendly and gave us a discount coupon to use at a restaurant we went to.

When the Holiday Inn Express was more than we wanted to pay, the desk clerk recommended this Best Western. For $80.71 + tax, we stayed in a renovated, well-decorated King room. Although the bathroom was small, it was also updated. Outside the bathroom was a long vanity + mirror, perfect for primping and laying out toiletries. Our WiFi worked well in our room far from the office. We used our room fan to mask the main street noise. Breakfast was wonderful and updated by a friendly hostess. We left with a smile. :)

With the trend to multi-story, inside entry rooms, the Turquoise Inn is soon to be a classic, park by your door motel, a design from the 60's to maybe the 70's. But that doesn't mean it's less than clean and comfortable. It has been regularly maintained and updated, and is as comfortable as any motel-hotel I've stayed at.

It's well located, close to shopping and dining, and totally safe feeling.

We would not hesitate to stay here again.

We enjoyed a wonderful night in this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the room was super clean and very spacious. Last but not least, the breakfast buffet was very large compared to other hotels we had on our trip. We will come back!

I was a little leery about booking a room based on the prior Best Western that we had stayed in. But I was very pleasantly surprised. Our room was bright, spacious, very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. Breakfast was very good (included) and the staff were quite helpful. The bathrrom had two sinks and lots of counter space which nicely facilitated getting ready in the mornings. I will definitely stay here again if in Cortez in the future.
