We didn't have a reservation and paid a lot for our room compared to the rest of our hotel costs on our trip. However, though the price was high ($134), our room was very nice. The beds were great and that's what matters when you are riding all day in the car. The staff at check-in was ok but the maid in our hall was so friendly and nice. The hotel should put HER at the front desk!

Holiday Inn Express doesn't pretend to be anything it's not and we love that. The rooms were a good size and the service was great. Very friendly staff. The only negative was on the first night, the pool was filthy. The receptionist immediately cleaned it out. The next day, the pool was clean and looked great again

So happy there are hotels that make rooms big enough for families with four children. This hotel's bigger rooms have two bunk beds, which even my teenagers loved. The bunk bed area also has a tv for the kids to watch. The main tv had a large screen. Breakfast was nice and had something for every member of my family. My only complaint was I wish breakfast would have started at 6:00 instead of 6:30. They had a pool, hot tub and a sauna. All in good shape. There was also a table of beautiful Indian jewelry in the front lobby that was for sell. I would stay here again.

From the front door to our room everything said this was an awesome place to stay. The Native American symbols and art set the mood for a vacation full of adventure and timeless history in a very unique place in the world. The staff was awesome, breakfast was hot and delicious, the pool and hot tub was a great place at the end of the day to laugh, relax, and talk about all the great things we'd seen and done that day.

There was a Navajo family selling jewelry and art in the main lobby. They made everything themselves and what a great place to learn about their lives and culture as we shopped with no pressure and no rush. Our boys enjoyed having the experience of talking to some of the descendents of the people who lived in the area 800 years ago.

Thanks for a great experience!

We chose Holiday Inn Express for an overnight stay after visiting Mesa Verde National Park. Originally, we had thought our time in the park would be two days, so we’d made reservations in advance for two nights in Cortez. Due to the fact that we were a few days ahead of the full touring schedule, we could only hike out to several of the sights in the park. That was easily accomplished in one day. The Holiday Inn front desk staff was very gracious about our cancellation of the second night’s reservation. Our standard, one king room was very comfortable, clean, and quiet. The breakfast the next morning was good, with several healthy choices. The lighting in the tub and toilet area was good. I don’t like to be picky, but I do have one complaint. While all hotels need to be energy conscious and switch to the new fluorescent bulbs, some do a much better job than others of finding new bulbs or new light fixtures for major grooming areas such as the area over the sink. In this hotel, the lighting over the sink area could be improved. Otherwise, mirrors and other options for dressing and grooming were great.

This hotel was a great home base for our trip to Mesa Verde, Canyons of the Ancients, Four Corners, and Anasazi Heritage Center museum. We spent three nights in the family suite with "Fort Holiday" - a comfortable King bed and two sets of bunk beds for our kids. It was more than enough space for our family of four. The free breakfast was excellent and a great value with good variety. Nice strong coffee, attentive and professional staff. We had no complaints. The only complaint I have is that there weren't enough outlets in the room and the sink area was a tad small - minor complaints. The pool and hot tub were nice, but the water was a bit cold. We used the laundry room once and was disappointed that it was in another building across the driveway. Still, excellent hotel and we will definitely come again!
