I traveled to Cortez on business and stayed at this hotel. Absolutely wonderful. Large, clean rooms with lots of amenities (mini-fridge, microwave, free wifi), hot shower, and... quiet. Even though the hotel was completely booked during my stay, it was very quiet. Free breakfast is included as well, and they have quite a variety of options. I was there close... More

The rooms are always spotless. The check in is fast and coffee is available at 5:00 in the morning. There is a pool and hot tub. It is very quiet and you will get rested. There is a business rate available.

The large room was clean and refreshing. The front desk employees were always smiling and extremely helpful with the few requests we made. The breakfast was filling and had all the usual items, eggs, sausage, waffles, juices, milk, coffee and tea etc. One thing that caught our attention the breakfast attendant would come out every so often and throw away...

I use Holiday Inn Express as my standard when traveling ... the package is pretty standard, the breakfasts are edible and reasonably varied, the beds are comfortable, the rooms have room, and the staff is normally positive and helpful. The Mesa Verde-Cortez HIE did achieve minimal HIE standards, but had other issues. There was some sort of debris in the... More

While visiting family over the Thanksgiving holiday, we stayed at the Cortez Holiday Inn Express for three nights. We were greeted by Ty when we checked in, to discover that I had accidentally booked the same reservation twice. The extra reservation was quickly refunded without any conflict. The only reason I am rating this hotel with four stars is that... More

My partner and i came in around 730am to see if they had rooms we could check into. The front desk had no issues with us checking in early and was very nice. He quickly had us on our way to a great nights sleep. The entire place is set in a Native American style decor. On the second floor,... More

Can't think of a problem. Room was comfortable & clean. Bathroom clean with good hot water. Breakfast area was clean with items well stocked and a friendly staff. Parking was adequate and well lit. It was a well run and safe place to stay. What more could one ask for.
