The Holiday Inn Express Mesa Verde was a wonderful, nice, clean place. April at the front desk rocks. She made our stay more than comfortable. She was very helpful, nice, and informative. If you have to stay in Cortez, the holiday is definitely the place to stay.

Our recent stay at this hotel was exceptional! April Wallace and all the front desk, housekeeping, delicious breakfast food service and maintenance employees have been well trained by your company. The entire staff was always friendly, helpful, gracious and made us feel very welcome! We love the Southwestern decor and the great, heated indoor pool and spa...plus late afternoon fresh... More

This hotel is always staffed with great people, always clean, and right next door to the best restaurant in Cortez, the Destination Grill. We prefer hotels where you can walk to dinner after arrival. Who wants to get back in the car again after a long day's drive? And, of course, every Holiday Inn Express has a breakfast that is... More

I am here every other week. The Front Desk people are friendly and efficient. It's quiet. The restaurant next door, Destination Grill, is always dependable and a great deal. I can rely on this hotel to assure my rest since I work a long week. There is a laundry and gym too.

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying here over the New Year's holiday and we wera e thrilled with the accommodations. After staying in the worst hotel in Cortez last summer (see previous reviews) I wasn't holding out much hope for a "great" hotel in such a small town, but I was very happily surprised with this Holiday...

My wife and I treat ourselves to a mini vacation between Christmas and New Year. For 2015-16, we traveled to Cortez, CO after visiting Gooseneck State Park, Monument Valley and Four Corners. We used Cortez, CO as our focal point to visit Mesa Verde NP and take the Durango to Cascade Wye Train trip. The best part of our stay... More

My wife and I just retired from the military a little over a year ago. We have both traveled and traversed many hotels. The Holiday Inn Express Mesa Verde was exceptional. The overall cleanliness was meticulous, very comfortable sleeping conditions (the beds were amazing - If you like your bed on the softer side), cost vs available breakfast (taste, preparation,...

What a spectacular hotel. Close to everything and easy to get there. We were there for our anniversary and it was perfect. Even a heart shaped tub in the room. The hot breakfast was great and every staff member we encountered was friendly and professional. We will definitely be back!

We stayed here while visiting Mesa Verde, and wow, what a beautiful hotel! They've got local art and styling all over the place. There's a nice gym and a really nice pool too. The room was a little snug, but the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The breakfast was delicious, and the front desk staff were... More

Great motel in Southwest Colorado. Front desk was vey professional and efficient. Rooms were well maintained and clean. The best part of each room is the water pressure. Those wishing to use the fitness room will find clean, well maintained workout machines/gear.
