I have nothing but great things to say about this Holiday Inn Express. First, the whole hotel is decorated with a southwest/outdoorsy motif that is very attractive(love the carpet in the rooms!). The room was exceptionally clean, bathroom was nice and big, beds were sooo comfortable. We had a third story room, with a nice huge window that gave us... More

Although Meza Verde wasn't my destination (on my way to Taos) this HIE was great. I asked for a restaurant recommendation and was sent up the street to some excellent Thai food after saying I wanted "good Asian food". Service was friendly--including assistance to my car with my luggage due to a pulled neck muscle on the trip. Quiet room,... More

Got a great nights sleep here. Very clean and an excellent staff! It was really decorated for the area and the breakfast was good also. I like theses hotels because they are consistent and you know what to expect but this one was a little nicer even! Close to Mesa Verde too!

Had a last minute change up for our room which was very easily and pleasantly accommodated by the wonderful front desk staff. Free wifi, 23 hour open heated pool! Free breakfast in the morning. Bed could be more comfortable (I like soft). About 30-40 minute drive into Mesa Verde we were very happy with this hotel choice!

Cortez seems to have limited lodging and restaurant options, which makes this comfortable hotel an attractive choice. It is located on the main highway leading to Mesa Verde, which is only 9 miles away. The hotel's spacious rooms are quiet, and the bed and pillows are comfortable. The breakfast is a cut above average, and there is an adjacent restaurant... More

Very clean, comfortable; nice bed and pillows, washer and dryer nearby, lots of toiletries and towels, refrig and microwave, convenient location to restaurants and stores. iHome and ChargePort. Great selection of breakfast.Decor is authentic to region. The only problem is the noisy people in the hall and room above.
