For a quick night's sleep, this motel is acceptable. The rooms are very outdated and worn. We were on the second floor, and the wood sub flooring creaked and made noise when we walked. I will say that the room was clean --which is one of the most important things for me-- but the shower was extremely vexing. The water... More

Our family has visited Mesa Verde in Colorado and it was a magical place. It contains old Indian cliff dwellings. You can take a wonderful ranger-led tour of the dwelling and palaces. My boys who were 10 and 13 at the time absolutely loved the place. It's a must see if you are in that area of Colorado.

This is an old worn out property. The room we stayed in smelled heavily of disinfectant, the furniture was beat up and bruised. The light fixture in the bathroom had two bulbs missing. There was no hair dryer or clock. There was a visible air fresher in the room. The rugs were old and grungy. They advertised updated rooms but... More

We have travelled around Europe and USA quite a lot. I am sure our agent made a booking error (there is a Holliday Inn around with a similar name). It seems this hotel name sign changes with the desert wind. The attempts to keep it clean fell dead on the dated building with some 'cowboy DIY' installations. Please see my... More

Well that's the only way to describe the outside . The pictures are very misleading ! The room itself was ok though but I've stayed in much better for much less ! Ok if your passing through but not the best :(

This hotel was hard to locate as the large sign showed as American Holiday, next sign showed as Mesa Verde Inn, and smallest sign showed Cortez Mesa Inn. For the price, value was OK and the room was large plus clean altho dangerous situation with M/W and Refrig. Outside was not appealing. Access into the hotel when heading west was... More

I have to say first the staff is fantastic, the night clerk who checked us in was very friendly and helpful.However, the property was kind of run down. Neither our sink or our tub would drain, so we had to shower in a tub full of backed up water. We had to where our shoes from the bed to the... More

Don't let the courtyard garden photo fool you. This place is very run down. The pool is filthy, the towels are like sand paper and the room itself, though large, seems as if it hasn't been occupied in years. The shower head is about 10-12 inches too low on the wall and there was no iron or ironing board in... More

The hotel we initially reserved we fled for ours lives from. To this nice motel. The night clerk was a charming nice lady who sympathized with us. I am bad with names but I think her name is Layla or Layna. We paid for our room and carried our stuff up. Nice clean room with a clean microwave and refrigerator.... More

Ok when you go to Cortez you should not expect much. It is an old western town. This place is old but it is clean,and spacious. The pool area was nice with lots of outdoor sitting. If you are just passing through this place is not too bad.
