“Nice Hotel close to Mesa Verde”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Nice hotel with a soul. It comes with the typical features and amenities of all Holiday Inn Express PLUS some nice decoration and furniture in the room as well as throughout the hotel with reference to the region (kind of a "Santa Fe atmosphere"). There is a nice lounge on the 1st floor with a fireplace in the middle-just great and homely! The hotel personnel is very friendly and helpful, without any exception! Breakfast is basic, WiFi is complementary and works excellent, very fast in my room on the first floor.
After all I give this hotel 5 out of 5. It's of cause not a 5 star palace, but a clean, modernized, stylish, friendly and cozy place with great employees. I would always come back. Great place.

McNamara_44! Oh, man, what a really cool and heart-warming thing to say about us. You really made everyone’s week over here! I made like ten copies of this review and have taped it up everywhere we gather or work. It’s like a cup of coffee, a pat on the back and a smile, every time any of us look at it. Really can’t thank you enough!

We have stayed in a number of hotels over the last two weeks of our road trip, and this one tops them for decor and cleanliness. The lobby, common areas, and our room were beautifully decorated in a classy southwestern theme. There is a nice lounge area on the second floor. It appears to have been newly renovated and well kept. No pets are allowed. Crystal on the front desk was cheery and helpful as was woman in the breakfast area. If you are going to Mesa Verde or visiting other areas, the woman in the visitor centre was also very helpful.

Although it may appear at first sight to be another hotel clone, this hotel showed great qualities. The room itself accommodated us and out teenage son brilliantly - great decor, beds and general comfort, with an ambiance that reflected the cultural aspects of the area.
Staff were very helpful and responsive generally and provided a whole range of useful information - very well thought out service which surpasses many other hotels. We highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Recommend rooms on the 3rd (top) floor to avoid the floor noise from above

My family and I stayed here for one night on our way back from Albuquerque, NM. The property is very easy to find and extremely clean. We loved the southwestern decor in the room and lobby. We arrived in the late afternoon and were quickly checked in by a very kind young woman. Since we were all so tired I picked up some deli items from the nearby Walmart for our dinner in. The room was a little small but worked fine for just one night. My kids loved the pancake machine!

We were on our way back from Denver to So. Cal. Had stayed in another H.I. Express just north of Denver the previous night. It was great too. We saw this H.I. and needed to stop for the night. Nice clean location, convenient to local restaurants. Rooms were very clean, spacious and well stocked. Front desk person was polite and helpful. Even gave me a free drink coupon to the restaurant next door. Indoor pool/Jacuzzi but did not use. I recommend getting a mountain view room to stay away from possible highway noise from the front. Highly recommend this location.

Room Tip: Choose away from the highway (back side) to stay away from possible traffic noise. Our room had a n...

There are several hotels in Cortez and all of them are good, I am sure. This Holiday Inn was a very good choice for us especially because it had a special kids area room, which we really needed after a couple of weeks travelling with our kid. The room was awesome! The kids zone is separtated by a fence and can fit up to 4 children inside, it has its own TV also. Our daughter was so amasing of her place! The hotel interior is nicely decorated with Navajo handicrafts and ornaments and looks really great. I was so happy that we stayed here for two nights! There are many places to eat around and the downtown is just 2minutes away including a big Safeway and cafes like Denny's. By the way, we found a great microbrewery not far from the hotel - really recommend it too!(the Family Dinner, if my memory does not fail me)

Excellent choice and very convenient to Mesa Verde. Bedroom was very comfortable, and the overall accommodations were very attractive and tasteful. Very nice breakfast buffet with many choices Be sure to eat at the Denny's restaurant next door.
