Cortez was not the highlight of our 3 week road trip. The only reason we stayed in this hotel was because it was close to Mesa Verde,a place I have always wanted to see, and Durango. When we arrived, we found it to be a very lovely property. When we opened the door to our room, it STUNK of cigarette...

We recently spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Cortez, CO. The facility is very well maintained with the friendliest staff. Melissa at the front desk was especially courteous and we must give kudos to the wonderful breakfast staff as well. Madonna and Leona were very busy keeping buffet clean and stocked all the while making sure the...

This was a great stay, with a reasonable price. The amenities are wonderful, the free breakfasts are great, lots of food and variety. The only thing that was average I would say was the cleanliness of the pool. But we were staying at a time when the hotel was packed, and a ton of people had already used the pool...

This is the nicest Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed in! Very friendly and helpful staff (Galen and Dana) during our entire stay. Beautiful décor throughout. Lots of good choices for breakfast. Great location - just a few miles from Mesa Verde National Park. Would definitely stay here again. Nancy and Dick H.

Nancy and Dick H! YES!!! Aren’t Galen and Dana nice! I just posted this review at the Front Desk and will acknowledge Galen and Dana in front of the Entire Hotel at our next Hotel-Wide meeting; they will be stoked (sp?)! Breakfast is my favorite meal in Cortez because there are like 20 places you can have it! One of...

The Holiday Inn in Cortez was a great place to stay. VERY clean, pleasant staff, free breakfast, free bottles of water, close proximity to Mesa Verde and the Four Corners. A very good overall experience. (we had a little issue with the wifi at first, but got it worked out)

My wife and I recently stayed at this motel on our way home from Arizona. We were impressed with the entire motel. When we checked in, I was told that I could park my motorcycle right outside the front door on the sidewalk. When I came out in the morning, I found a pail of carwash soap and water along...

After 2 days of camping at nearby Moorefield Campground in Mesa Verde (another great choice, by the way), we spend the last night of the long holiday weekend at the Holiday Inn Express in Cortez. We paid the extra $30 or so for the kids suite and it was well worth it. The room is large with a log "fort"...

I had booked two rooms for one night while on a recent trip. The hotel was clean, quiet, and the staff was exceptional. They did everything they possibly could to make our stay memorable. I was impressed from the moment we arrived to our departure. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel would be a find in a major city, let alone Cortez. The lobby is expansive and well decorated, and there's a smaller, attractive seating area on the second floor. Our room was very large, thoughtfully appointed and quiet despite being near the elevators. The laundry room is in the lower level of the adjacent restaurant and I used...

We spent one night here recently while on the road trip. I thought the hotel was a very good value. The rooms are attractive, clean, updated with lots of plugs to re-charge our iPhones, etc. The bathroom with spacious. I was especially impressed with the breakfast the next morning, which included omelettes and pancakes instead of just the usual breads...
