Great room, beds, and pillows. Awesome breakfast. Very nice, clean pool and hot tub. Staff was very helpful and polite. The women working the breakfast were exceptional! Really enjoyed the native Indian jewelry display with authentic pieces for sale by woman who made them.

Mesa Verde National Park is a sight worth seeing and a very easy drive from Cortez, which is why we chose to stay at this hotel. The hotel is very clean, points for that. It is also a new-ish hotel, so things felt up to date. The free breakfast was fantastic in the morning. Pool a little lackluster, but does... More

This hotel was a good option for Cortez. I wipe all the areas down with disinfecting wipes and this hotel passed except the bunk beds. I have noticed that hotels seem to neglect children areas and cribs when they clean. I don't know why this is since they tend to be the dirtiest. The standing light in our room was... More

It's expensive for an Express but well located. We had a roll in shower which was adequate but the shower curtain is for a tub shower and as a result the entire bathroom floor gets wet. There was confusion as to whether or not the accessible lift to the pool worked. I'd recommend staff training on the lift be mandatory.... More

Used this hotel as a stopover on way from Vegas to Telluride and as a convenient location for Four Corners and Mesa Verde NP. Perfect family hotel with a great kids nook attached to our room. Good location and decent breakfast.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Mesa Verde and were very pleased. The hotel is at the east end of town, a short 8-mile drive or so to Mesa Verde. The hotel is newer, with a funky western décor, and is well kept and clean. Our room was of good size and very clean. Nice pillows. Good hot... More

These past 3 weeks I stayed in HI Express hotels in Page AZ, Cortez CO, Santa Fe NM and Flagstaff AZ and I noticed a lot of similarities. In every hotel the size of the room was generous, but there were no wardrobes. A 3-drawer cabinet is not nearly enough for your holiday luggage and you are forced to keep... More

Ok place to stay. But the rooms were out dated. I waited for them to get done talking to what looked liked a friend. Room key wasn't ready. I asked for a king bed and got two queens. I asked if they had king room they said no. Looked on line and there were king bed rooms available. The room... More

Love that their decor reflects the location and compliments the Native Americans. Easy drive to Mesa Verde. A few things could have been polished up: towels on swimming pool weren't stocked, my daughter stepped on a giant industrial staple in our room since the corner was coming off the bed. But overall, nice place.

Susiecamera!! Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! I just got a huge pool towel order in on the 3rd of July so we will not run short anymore! Sorry about that dang staple, we are digging into the rooms to see if we can't find any other maintenance issues that have gone unnoticed, thanks for... More
