Thank you TA reviewers, once again you get it right! We stayed here the weekend of 10/10/2014 while visiting Telluride, Four Corners and Mesa Verde. Our room was clean and comfy and the staff was friendly. The breakfast in the mornings was good and added to the value. Will definitely return when visiting Mesa Verde.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Colorado. This place is a great location to stay if visitnig Mesa Verde and the Canyon of The Ancients/Hovenweep National Monuments. The hotel was clean and decorated nicely. The only only complaint, and its a small one, is the "business center is actually a computer monitor and keyboard to use at the... More

63impala! Thanks for the GREAT review! You visited two awesome locations here that are off the beaten path! I wonder if you checked out the Ute Mountain Tribal park?? Its crazy! You are right about the business center which is why we are going legit in the next few months with two "Work-stations" in a legit, private but convenient area!... More

The young lady that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. The rooms were nice but... very noisy. I am not a light sleeper and the noise from adjoining rooms and upstairs rooms was very loud for being inside. No road noise although it is on a main street. It seems the insulation between rooms...

All the attention to detail everywhere in the rooms from the lamps to the colours and design of the carpet to light fittings in common areas and even the door numbers.....it's so nicely done.... The rooms are very comfortable and... More

I'm not sure what I expected but this hotel exceeded it. The hotel seems rather new which is good. The common areas are nice and inviting. My room had a comfortable bed, plenty of TV channels, a nice bathroom, and good Wi-Fi. The complimentary breakfast was attended to by two friendly, helpful staff members and was pretty typical for a... More

I didn't actually stay here because after inquiring about a room I was told a room with a queen bed would be $199.00! In Cortez, CO! I went across the street to the Days Inn and got a room with a queen bed, frig and microwave for $71.00. I am still dumbfounded... it wasn't the Ritz in NYC.

Extremely nice hotel with a great location, but I would not recommend staying on the first floor. While it was convenient the downside is you hear the plumbing usage for the two floors above you. This becomes an even bigger issue when the hotel is packed with tour groups that are getting up and leaving very early. Additionally heard a... More

If all the Holiday Inns out there were as clean, beautiful and clean as this one, the HI chain would have more of our business. This is a good looking brick building, nicely landscaped and perfectly maintained. The interior is Southwest all the way without being overdone.
