“Good stay, would surely come back.”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

We stayed for 2 nights in this Best Western while visiting Mesa Verde NP. The nice rooms opening to a courtyard were clean and had confi beds. Indoor Hot Tub was very nicely decorated, but the chloride stung in our eyes. Breakfast was good, but space was a bit limited.

We stayed here one night after driving the spectacular San Juan Skyway on our way to Mesa Verde. Hotel is fine, pretty average by Best Western standards. Breakfast was ok.

We stopped over for one night in Cortez, CO on our vacation and found the Turquoise Inn to be a good deal. A full breakfast was included in the price and we found it to be very good. The rooms are about average size, (ours had a king bed) but clean and comfortable. Our room looked out over the parking lot and outdoor swimming pool (which was very busy), but we found that even with the hotel being full that night, it was reasonably quiet. The bathrooms are small but Bath & Body Works toiletry items are supplied -- which I happen to like! Lodging around Cortez is limited so I would definitely recommend the Turquoise Inn.

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 !!
