We were lost - it was late - it was dark and we were hungry. We called the hotel, told them where we were and they provided directions and held a room for us. The decor is stylish, the room clean and breakfast very good.

The room, lobby, etc were nice. BUT we were disappointed that the pool and hot tub were closed for renovation. I had booked the reservation by phone and they didn't say anything about it. We would have stayed elsewhere. They sent us to the community center pool without a hot tub and applied that fee against our bill, but did... More

About ten years ago, when I moved to Cortez to begin a new employment, I stayed here with my wife and two kids for well over a month. There were no extended stay avail abilities nearby, so we all crammed into the room without a microwave or fridge. This place took us in like family! They always bent over backwards... More

Visiting Mesa Verde is a wonder in itself. Having a nice, clean place to stay after a long day of hiking seals the deal. Spent two nights. Well appointed. Well cared for. Clean. Awesome, helpful staff. Pool closed for improvements but they offered an alternative offsite. They gave me a room on the third floor with a view of the... More

Very nice HI Express, with Native American decor, a great breakfast and quiet room with comfy bed. We stayed in one of the family rooms with a king bed and 4 bunks for the kids in an area of the room called Fort Holiday. The kids even had their own TV and video game console to keep them entertained. If... More

This was a good choice as it is close to Mesa Verde and weather was snowy and icy so we wouldn't want to drive into the Park late in the day.I think the park lodge was still shut for Winter anyway.Clean comfortable and good value.

This is a really atmospheric hotel with native American decor. The breakfast bar was excellent. The room was perfect, bedding perfect. The pool area was under renovation, but the hotel offered free admission to a nearby community pool facility. The front desk clerk was very helpful and cheerful

PietervonHolland! Thanks for the Terrific Review!! We are getting closer to the Pool being completed. They will begin plastering with the quartz finish on Monday, and while it "cures" we will be repairing the floor we tore up to make sure the Hot Tub never breaks down again (Oh, please tell me I did not just jinx myself..) !!

This is ranked number one, and it did not let me down. Nicer feel than many HI Expresses and pride of ownership is evident. The room is spacious, clean,and comfortable. The staff in the breakfast area were very kind. The price of the room was fine - they are building a competing hotel next door which I think will help... More

My second time here. Checking in was a breeze. Nothing has changed since my last visit but the decor is very western/Ausi mix. Room was perfect. Bed was comfortable. No issues with wifi and even the computer room was nice. Will definitely stay here again.

With most of my family still living in Cortez, we stay here frequently and have never been disappointed. The staff is always extremely helpful and friendly. Our reservations are always perfect, and the rooms clean and comfortable. The inclusive breakfast includes both cold and hot fair, with servers keeping food refreshed.
