“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Great budget motel. We stayed in king room with tiled floor. At check in they asked if we would rather have carpet or tile. Super comfy king bed, fridge, keurig coffee maker in room. The young lady that takes care of breakfast does a great job with many options no matter where you are traveling from. I saw lots of international travelers that seemed happy with their choices. Very helpful front desk staff with great suggestions in where to eat. For the price, clean and comfy beds and breakfast included its a great deal.!!! I would definitely stay here again

\We arrived in Cortez in the middle of the night looking for a good local place to stay. The sign grabbed us right away and we knew we'd choose this inn. Despite the last minute arrival we were well taken care of and got a very nice room, it was perfectly clean and very comfortable.

After a great nights sleep we took advantage of the included breakfast. The friendly staff helped us find what we needed from their surprisingly large selection of food before we had to hit the road again.

We were on a budget and were very impressed with everything the Retro Inn had to offer us. Excellent lodging at an excellent price. If you are just passing by or wishing to check out many of the sights in the area I would highly recommend staying here.

A renovated motor inn, the Retro is close to the Mesa Verde entrance, downtown Cortez, several trading posts and it is a great value! Rooms are totally renovated and the place has a retro charm. I would highly recommend this over the "same everywhere" franchise places.

We love the sign and had to check it out! Clean room nice linens roomy room! Some improvements would be to replace the outside doors and try to be environmentally conscious. Wish they accepted dogs as well. Our had to sleep in the car. Breakfast was best cold continental we had seen since Europe!

We are so glad we stayed here. Had read some reviews complaining about noise but we couldn't have been happier. Once in our room with door closed and windows shut we heard no highway noise at all. The room was delightful. The beds were comfortable and most of all everything was CLEAN. This place is a gem. My only fear is that more people will discover how wonderful this place is and they will raise their prices or there will never be any vacancies. This was a wonderful trip back to a slower simpler time. Can't say enough good things about this place.

This was a pleasant experience. This is the third time I have stayed here and the rooms are very clean friendly staff, nice and quiet. They have continental breakfast and it had plenty of choices. Love the fact that there was a fridge in the room. I will defiantly stay here again looking forward till my next stay in May.

What a neat place. Most everything has been up-dated. Rooms all repainted, very comfortable beds. New A/C -- Heat and very quiet. Floors in the rooms are black and white checkerboard tile. Kurig Coffee single cup machine with choice of coffee is available in the room. Charcoal grills and propane grills available. The propane is provided, charcoal your on your own. Colorful outdoor chairs and tables. Breakfast was a wide choice of breads and muffins, as well as hardboiled eggs, and choice of cereal, both hot and cold. Madonna is sweet and takes care of the dinning and makes pleasant conversation. Justin the General Manager took time to sit and chat while we had breakfast and let us know there were many more up dates to come. Great place and reasonable price.

Room Tip: Great family spot.
