Great budget motel. We stayed in king room with tiled floor. At check in they asked if we would rather have carpet or tile. Super comfy king bed, fridge, keurig coffee maker in room. The young lady that takes care of breakfast does a great job with many options no matter where you are traveling from. I saw lots of... More

\We arrived in Cortez in the middle of the night looking for a good local place to stay. The sign grabbed us right away and we knew we'd choose this inn. Despite the last minute arrival we were well taken care of and got a very nice room, it was perfectly clean and very comfortable. After a great nights sleep... More

A renovated motor inn, the Retro is close to the Mesa Verde entrance, downtown Cortez, several trading posts and it is a great value! Rooms are totally renovated and the place has a retro charm. I would highly recommend this over the "same everywhere" franchise places.

We love the sign and had to check it out! Clean room nice linens roomy room! Some improvements would be to replace the outside doors and try to be environmentally conscious. Wish they accepted dogs as well. Our had to sleep in the car. Breakfast was best cold continental we had seen since Europe!

We are so glad we stayed here. Had read some reviews complaining about noise but we couldn't have been happier. Once in our room with door closed and windows shut we heard no highway noise at all. The room was delightful. The beds were comfortable and most of all everything was CLEAN. This place is a gem. My only fear... More

This was a pleasant experience. This is the third time I have stayed here and the rooms are very clean friendly staff, nice and quiet. They have continental breakfast and it had plenty of choices. Love the fact that there was a fridge in the room. I will defiantly stay here again looking forward till my next stay in May.

Nice breakfast area. Good variety of breakfast items for the price of stay. Also has two nice barbecues for guests. Staff has always treated me with respect. All in... More

Nice job of renovating, fun colors and furnishings! A lot of thought was out into what guests want and need: homey, spacious, very comfortable beds, choice of pillows, in room frig and coffee maker with quality coffee, very good buffet breakfast with a variety of breads/bagels/muffins and jams. Not the cheap packaged stuff. Fruits could be better but not easy... More
