We stayed here one night in early January 2013. It was everything we needed. Very comfortable, unique decor, and the manager/owner was on site and was a joy to interact with. Shared a lot about the area. Breakfast staff was pleasant and the food was what you'd expect.

We stayed in Cortez during a visit to the Mesa Verde National Park. The motel was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We rested well between hiking the park. The front-desk staff was courteous and we had an enjoyable stay.

We took a July trip to Mesa Verde National Park and stayed a few days at this Holiday Inn Express. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The front desk staff was courteous and informed. It was about a 15 minute drive to the park entrance
