We were looking for lodging in the neat town of Cortez a day before booking our stay. The Hampton was sold out. Upon reading reviews for this Holiday Inn Express (I am an IHG Platinum member) we chose to stay here. Of course, it too sold out. During the booking process I do believe they had 4 rooms available at... More

Shower set for super low flow, so much so the water dribbled straight down from the shower head, no matter how it was adjusted. Yet, the water pressure in the sink was strong. This was unfortunate, because this is a nicely appointed, modern, clean, and comfortable hotel with quite competitive rates. However, not being able to shower is a deal... More

We booked the 'bunk bed suite' which was perfect for our family of 5, this is not the reason for my review, simply info for traveling families.

This hotel appeared to be a Holiday Inn that has been converted to an HI Express. The rooms and hallways were large, clean, and well-equipped.

The front desk told us our room would be quiet, but nothing was farther from the truth.
