There was a horrible dust storm in Colorado so we had to stay the night someplace before seeing Mesa Verde in the morning. The Cortez Holiday Inn Express was perfect! Clean rooms, a small pool, nothing fancy, but a place to rest our weary heads during the last few days of our road trip out west. If you need a... More

We loved this hotel. We stayed in the King Suite with bunk beds. It is a larger room with a "fort" built in the corner with 2 sets of bunk beds. Absolutely Brilliant! We loved that we could have our own space but not have to split up our family. The kids had their own TV and X-box which was... More

Road trip’n! We LOVE your review and are ecstatic you liked the Family Suite! I wish we had 10 more of those suites, it seems these sell out weeks in advance anymore, in fact, when we remodel the hotel I am going to see if ownership will spring for doubling our count to 10. That dang pool! As soon as... More

Not a lot of selection in Cortez but this is probably one of the best. Pool was a little worn down and hot tub makes a loud gurgling noise at times. Rooms were in the smaller side but overall pretty clean. We ate a KoKo's next door where they grill outside all year. The food was really good! Overall, the... More

We were visiting the Four Corners area and chose to stay in Cortez, central to Mesa Verde and Ute Tribal Parks, Anasazi Visitors Center and Canyon of the Ancients. Holiday Inn Express met all our needs. Breakfast was better than most hotels, Rooms very comfortable with plenty of electric outlets. Staff in dining area and cleaning all did an excellent... More

Very enjoyable stay, nice accomodations, tastefully furnished and clean. Extremely well-trained staff, professional and very friendly. Great breakfast. By far the best hotel-experience during our 7 day roundtrip.

The property looks relatively new inside and outside, clean and well maintained. I would say it is an above average/typical HI Express. The front desk associates were very friendly and courteous. Will stay there again when in the area next time. The hotel is located at the Eastern end Cortez.

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... More

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...
