Close to Mesa Verde a practical and clean hotel to spend the night. Nice views in both directions. Quite but well established town to stay in. Didn't get to use the pool but it looked very tempting. Maybe next time.

Every year our organization holds an event in Cortez and we require 20 rooms. Curtis Storm, the Director of Sales, is receptive to our needs. The rooms are well kept and affordable, food at the restaurant is good, and staff is top notch. When not one person in a group of 20 has no complaints two years in a row,... More

This hotel is a great location for visiting Mesa Verde and other attractions in the area. Nice architecture and décor. Great swimming pool area (received compliments from my wife). Excellent breakfast with very attentive staff.

Francis Gandolf!! You again!! I just responded all over you on the Brand’s low-calorie version of a carbohydrate-rich review website. Quick question, does that mark thing over the word Daycore mean that you speak French?

We spent five days camping in the desert, so this stay was a nice retreat. We came in a bit weary and the front desk staff were polite, humorous, and cheerful. They greeted us warmly and provided clear and concise directions. We walked down the hallway into out suite and it was clean and comfortable. After a week of hiking... More

Good hotel with clean rooms and very helpful staff. Only annoyance was a very cheeky note added to the hotel receipt upon checkout which told guests who write Tripadvisor reviews to give them a five-star rating if they were 'satisfied' which is not at all in line with what the ratings here indicate: five-star is 'excellent', 'satisfied' is closer to...

Mallorne! Thank you for the Four Star Review, however, I have to give you a verbal warning for not following my instructions on leaving us a five star review. I understand your disagreement to be largely semantic and that is why this is only a verbal warning and will be expunged from your file on your next visit should we... More

My family of 5 and I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Mesa Verde in Cortez, CO. It is a great hotel and we will stay there again whenever we are in the area.

There is nothing negative to say here except that the price is a little high if you are on a budget but then, ALL of Cortez is high so Holiday Inn Express is right in there with the others. The staff was courteous, the room was extremely nice, and it was such a great surprise to see the pool open... More

I love that the pool is open late; a swim after a day of sightseeing is so refreshing! Breakfast had a nice selection.Room was clean and relatively quiet even though we were next to an exterior door. The microwave and mini fridge were a nice bonus. Plenty of parking, though none is covered.

I always love the Holiday Inns. I don't believe I've ever been disappointed. The beds were comfy and the room was clean. The kids enjoyed the pool also. On site restaurant and laundry as well and the give you a coupon for restaurant at check in. Lots to do in the area also.

We came up to visit Mesa Verde National Park which was about 9 miles from the hotel. Staff checked us in quickly and gave some very helpful information about the area. Room was comfortable and we had an excellent night. Would definitely stay again.
