“Nice Holiday Inn Express in Cortez”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Stayed 2 nights in early May. Rooms are clean and well-furnished. A good breakfast is included. Computer for guests is inconvenient as one has to stand to use it in lobby. It is not in a separate business room. Also, fitness room and laundry are in a separate building close by across the parking lot instead of the usual location inside the hotel building. The location is on the far end of town closest to Mesa Verde. It also next to Walmart that are few and far between in this section of the country. Cortez is small so it is a short ride down Main St to all the restaurants in town [we ate at Farm Bistro and La Casita] and street parking was available.

If you are traveling with kids through this area then definitely book the "Fort Holiday" room. Our family of 5 (three teens) stayed here for two nights and it was a great stay. The fort has wrap around style bunk beds with a tv and a gaming system (not gamers so didn't use) and the kids enjoyed lounging in their own little space. The beds in the room were comfortable, the place was clean and the location was great for visiting Mesa Verde as you can purchase tickets at the Colorado Welcome center just down the road. There are several grocery stores and some box stores near by for all of your other needs. The drive from Cortez to Mesa Verde is a little long but worth it for the scenery from this hotel. Overall it was a great stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Fort Holiday rooms worked great for our three teenagers in case you were wondering if it was only fo...

If only all Holiday Inns were as good as this one, we only stayed one night, everything about this hotel was 5*, the front desk staff were super helpful, our room was like new, and the restaurant was really good too, would definitely choose this hotel on my next visit to Durango!

We got the king bed with kids. It was fantastic!! We had two grandchildren who loved the two bunk beds and their private area with their own TV. This is a really great clean hotel and reasonably priced at half what we paid at the Grand Canyon Best Western and a much better room and facility. I only wish I could always find a place like this consistently as I travel the USA.

Enjoyed our two night stay at the HIE Cortez. It is really the PURR-FECT =^..^= place to stay while visiting Cortez and Mesa Verde National Park. The park is very close to the hotel. Maybe 15 min. drive. Go to the park early and spend the day.....Info Center is just down the street. They have tickets that you can buy in advance for the tours at the park. Very helpful and lots of info on the area. Definitely take at least one tour of the Cliff Dwellings... So Cool...We did three cliff Dwellings in one day...
The Hotel lobby decour is very nice with pictures and sculptures. Loved the inlays in the tile floors. The hotel makes you feel welcome...Front desk staff was great. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Top floor was very quiet. Breakfast is great. Staff kept everything full. You also have the option of take out or what you might say on the run breakfast. They had boxes for the cinnamon rolls and even bags for your breakfast. Enough variety of food for a good breakfast to keep you going until lunch at the park....Eggs, bacon, sausage and so much more including their Great Cinnamon rolls.
Justin Vasterling AGM will go above and beyond to be helpful. I had made my reservations personally with him on the phone and he was so helpful getting me a QUIET Room. He even sent me info about Mesa Verde. He is definitely a KEEPER!!!!!!....When we got to the hotel I looked forward to meeting him personally. Great guy. He even helped me with a slight problem I encountered....Thanks Justin...You are the Greatest!!!! They go out of their way to be helpful in any way they can.

One comment...If buying Indian Jewelry...Helpful hint... Check inside to see the Indian Hallmark of who made the jewelry you are buying especially if they are telling you they made it. Ask what their Hallmark is....Some people say they made it when they don't... They have beautiful jewelry in the area ....Shop around before buying!!!!
ENJOY your stay in Cortez as much as we did. WE will be back.....This is a nice little town and a safe area when traveling. HAPPY TRAVELS =^..^=

Room Tip: Top floor is very quiet!!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn Mesa Verde over spring break with our 3 young sons. The hotel is very clean and well maintained plus we were able to have a very large room with enclosed kids fort with 2 sets of bunk beds. The King bed was also very comfortable. The bunk beds allowed us to have privacy and avoid renting 2 rooms. The breakfast was great and pool area very nice. Conveniently located close to Mesa Verde and many restaurants. We will definitely go back as we have much of Mesa Verde to still explore!

Room Tip: For families, reserve the bunk bed family suites. Rent early though, as I am sure they book up fast...

Our room was clean, comfortable, and in great condition. The room was a little smaller than usual, but not a problem for us. The breakfast was good and there was lots of room in the dining area. The staff was helpful.
