Newer facility. Parking is rather cramped and if not early, you can end up down the hill, so make sure you drop your bags off before parking! Rooms and lobby were clean and decorated with Native American/Anasazi motif. Was quite nice. Rooms were clean. Breakfast area was well attended, clean and friendly. The only bad experience? We ended up with... More

This is the first time we have stayed at a Holiday Inn and we were very impressed with it. Super bedding and pillows, exceptionally clean, great full free buffet with plenty of room so there was no standing in line for a table. Nice pool and hot tub. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. Extremely quiet. Loved the Southwest... More

I decided to stay 2 nights in Cortez to easily tour Mesa Verde national park, and this Holiday inn is located only minutes away from both the park and "downtown" Cortez. The hotel is clean with a friendly and welcoming staff. However, the experience wasn't as great as it could have been. First, the parking lot of the hotel is... More

We stayed one night in this hotel after a day in Mesa Verde National Park. The staff was very friendly. The hotel was very clean. I requested a late check out and they were very accommodating. The laundry facilities were in the building next door to the hotel.

We enjoyed 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Cortez. Very nice and clean room. The staff was very friendly. We will definitely stay there again. Oh and the chocolate chip cookies in the evening are delicious. The Destination bar and grill across the parking lot is a great place to eat.

As the title suggests this is just another Holiday Inn. However, we had a great experience overall starting from check-in which was quick and easy to the clean and comfortable room. The breakfast was more than adequate and based on the numbers of people everything was stocked up or if something runs out it is soon replenished. Check-out was just... More

We stayed in one of the family suites and our kids absolutely loved the little bunk room. It had four bunks with their own TV. They said it was the best hotel ever! I wish that more hotels would have rooms like this for families. The rooms were clean and nice and the breakfast was decent for a hotel.

Our check-in was smooth, our room was quiet and clean, and views from our window were gorgeous. The breakfast room is roomy and comfortable. Two tour fairly large tour groups were having an early breakfast when we were there, and yet there was plenty of room, and more than enough of each and every dish offered. The thoughtful staff were... More

It took me by surprise. For the price it was a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and refreshing and we slept great! I really recommend this as a super place to stay and relax. It's also close to places to visit and had a great work out room... More

What a great value. The rooms are nice and the in door pool is amazing. Ariella was the front desk employee. She was so helpful. She told us where to eat and the cool places in town to visit. Plus she was just a pleasant person. If you're looking for a great value, stay at the Holiday Inn.
