Excellent from start to finish. Stayed 2 nights while seeing Mesa Verde National Park. Decor is perfect and welcoming. Beds and pillows are yummy 😘. Shower pressure is fantastic. Free breakfast was outstanding (especially loved the pancake maker!). Can’t say enough good things about this hotel. Would definitely recommend!

Fine hotel, questionable town
This hotel was fine. The beds and pillows were comfy and the room was clean. The breakfast was terrible. All of the cheese omelets were burned and although the oatmeal bar was set up, there was no oatmeal. The juice machine was broken, and the offerings were sparse. The employee who should have been working was sitting at a table texting and scrolling through her phone, then left entirely to make a phone call.
Just a note about Cortez. This is one of the sketchiest, backward, drug-riddled communities I've ever stayed in. It's convenient to Mesa Verde, but the town is not safe. We live in a big city and know how to function safely in an urban environment, but this was shocking. If we ever visit Mesa Verde again, we'd stay in Durango and avoid Cortez completely.

Nice Place to Stay When Visiting Mesa Verde National Park
Not much to look at from the outside, but the inside lobby is lovely and the rooms were very nice, clean, and comfortable. Stayed here two nights while visiting Mesa Verde National Park. Complimentary breakfast was helpful prior to a day of hiking. Employees were friendly and helpful with local restaurant options that proved to be spot on. Nothing fancy, but perfect for family vacationing. Very quiet, which is always a plus!

Met expectations for a Holiday Inn Express
The hotel was consistent with the better Holiday Inn Express locations. The staff was friendly, the facilities were decent, and the rooms were clean. The breakfast was actually somewhat better than anticipated. Easy access to Mesa Verde and restaurants.

No Swimming here
Obviously in town to visit Mesa Verde and the Ancient Ones trail so after a very hot day of hiking and sightseeing was looking forward to a swim to cool down. The pool area was 90-100 degrees and extremely humid. The noxious fumes from the pool were enough to make you ill but the green murky water said it all. Should be visited by the health department. The rooms were very clean which was a plus. The breakfast had a lot of choices but very average. Will select another hotel next time.
