Best Western Turquoise Inn & Suites
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Cortez
Reviewed August 18, 2011

This hotel has suites that are great for family vacations (2 double beds in 1 room w/ door + double bed sleeper couch in living room). All rooms are nonsmoking except for 4 rooms near the lobby. However, when I told the front desk that a man was smoking outside our room, I learned that the hotel forbids people from smoking only in the non-smoking rooms but people are free to smoke in the halls, the courtyard & other areas of the hotel. I was shocked. Smoke easily seeps into rooms from the hallways. Also, we wanted to eat breakfast in the shaded outdoor courtyard but decided not to since we figured a smoker would light up as soon as we sat down. If you don't like inhaling second hand smoke, you might want to stay elsewhere. I hope the hotel changes this policy because smoke in the common areas detracted from an otherwise pleasant experience. This hotel (except for the smoke) is one of the nicest places to stay when visiting Mesa Verde (a "must do" in the Four Corners area).

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you mind people smoking in the hall outside your non-smoking room.

It is our choice each year when we go to Cortez. We had stayed in other Hotels before we stayed here. The staff is great and rooms are clean. Our 5 stay!

Ideally located in the Main street of Cortez we found this B/W to be in our top two of all the hotels/motels we stayed in over 9 States of the US of A over the month of January. A great base to visit Mesa Verde, ski Purgatory outside Durango and relax with a few at the Main St Brewery ! The Suite was great value at under $US120 with hot breakfast for 4 !The staff were overly friendly and helpful and when we mentioned AAA affiliation (NRMA, RACV etc for aussies) the rate was reduced ! Talk about great value for your buck ! Well worth the diversion if you are in the location or on your way to Vegas , Grand Canyon etc.

Room Tip: If travelling with teenagers ask for the suite , worth the peace and quite !!

This place was AMAZING. I wasn't so sure from the looks of the outside when we first got there, but the room was huge and beautiful and exceeded our expectations 100%! I was extremely bummed we got there late and then had to leave again early. The bed was one of the best I've ever slept in. Room was extremely clean and had quality toiletries. All the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was very good, but my only complaint was that it didn't start until 6:30 when we were leaving at 6:45 for a tour at Mesa Verde National Park. I thought that was strange when that's where most of their guests will probably be going.

We booked a 2 bed queen suite. This also included a fairly large area with a sofa bed, chair, t..v, and refrigerator. The place was very clean. They had a nice hot free breakfast that was included in the price of the room. We were very pleased with our overnight stay there. We walked down the road a piece to eat dinner at a place they recommended. It was something like "Jerry's " can't recall the name, but it is a meat and vegetable place with large portions and reasonable prices and locally owned. If you are going to Mesa Verde, you can purchase tickets at the Colorado Welcome Center there in Cortez. Do this ASAP because it is first come, first serve on the tickets!

This was our second stay at this hotel. We loved it so much the first time two years ago that we didn't even hesitate to book it for this trip. We were not disappointed. Their suites are big and clean. The landscaping in the courtyard is beautiful. The staff is friendly. They have hot continental breakfast (eggs, sausage, waffles). There is a nice outdoor pool plus a huge indoor hottub (with a waterfall). There are plenty of restaurants nearby. And to top it off, they are pet friendly which we needed for this trip. This hotel remains as my #1 favorite Best Western ever.
