it is a typical holiday inn and one of the nicer hotels in cortez. its about a 10 minute drive to mesa verde entrance. Ask for a room away from the ice maker the doors are paper thin and you can hear everything going on in the hallways.

814Chadwick! Thanks for staying with us while you visited Mesa Verde National Park! Sorry bout the noise in the hall. I am a walk on eggshells and whisper kind of guy when I am travelling, but if I am with friends, I tend to be obnoxious and boisterous, so I see both sides of the issue. We try our best... More

The room was very clean. There is a coffee pot in the room...a big plus! They offer a free hot breakfast with a pancake maker. It's great for all ages. The front desk staff was very warm and engaging. We would definitely stay here again. Easy access to and from the Main Street.

Pulled up in the early evening to the Holiday Inn Express and was greeted warmly by the desk staff. Check in was a breeze and even got the 3rd floor like we asked for. The rooms and hotel are clean and well maintained. No one likes staying somewhere all rundown. The pool is good sized and has a connected whirlpool,... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times and I have stayed at several others in the area. This is always my favorite although there are other places that are less expensive that are nice too.

Spent two lovely nights in this very comfortable hotel - has a lovely ambiance with comfortable rooms - spotlessly clean and a nice breakfast area and offer. Enables you to explore the nearby Mesa National Park ( about nine miles away) with ease. Cortez is a small town but has one or two nice bars and restaurants to also investigate.... More

The room was exceptionally clean and stylish; the breakfast was great and the receptionist staff was courteous, friendly and professional. The shower offered an adjustable head and fantastic water pressure. Overall, the best hotel my family and I stayed in during our 5 nights in the 4-Corners area.

Cortez is depressing: a four lane highway is what they call Main Street, and it even has enormous parking lots on each side ... as a thoroughly urban person, I could not imagine a less urban place than Cortez, although the Visitor Center was super. The lady who helped us gave us the best recommendations about visiting Mesa Verde and... More

MagaPhiladelphia!, lol, we have officially renamed the highway "Not Main Street" in your honor! I hear what your saying, and would love it if you Google Street Viewed Montezuma Ave; it is the actual and original main street of Cortez and if everything hadn't dropped south a block it would rival some of the world famous places in CO like...

My family and I had 4 rooms at a different hotel in Cortez reserved for two nights, but the experience at the first hotel was so bad that I started looking for a different place to stay for our second night.
