We stayed here after going to Mesa Verde. Service was OUTSTANDING. The staff made our stay happen since it was last minute. They completely accommodated my family. Cortez is not much to speak of as a town, but this property is newly renovated and is really nice! I would not even think about staying anywhere else in town after staying...

Joe C! OMG, you have stayed at the four seasons in Singapore, I LOVE that place! I cannot believe we even rate after you stayed there, that is crazy awesome! Our local Navajo artisans are Jess and Frieda; she rocks our jewelry and he is a potter, they are both great people and good at what they do. Thank you...

We had a last minute change in our travel plans and were able to get a room here at the Holiday Inn in Cortez. The hotel lobby is done with a beautiful Navajo theme. The room was spacious and clean, comfortable bed, great view. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. Good breakfast buffet. Even though it...

Yes! linda g! The Hot Tub Suite is awesome, I wish all our rooms were that big and had a Jacuzzi tub in them! Glad you liked the views of Mesa Verde too, we live in a very beautiful area. Suites are generally only $20-$30 more than a standard room. Unfortunately we have gone No Pet and No Smoking. Some...

This is one of the best hotels in the Holiday Inn chain. Navaho theme. Large clean rooms. Day trip to Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, & Canyon de Chelly after great breakfast bar. Ask the staff about the best Mexican restaurant in Colorado, they know.

Suggsrider! Love the title of your review! Last time I gave a shout out to the great places to eat in our town, my response got deleted for “advertising”, lol!

We spent one night at this property for our drive through the Four Corners area. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was nice. There was free breakfast, which was very good, with a great staff keeping it stocked. Eggs, Pancakes, Cinnamon buns, etc...great selections. The sink was separate/outside the rest of the bathroom, which is always convenient! Very...

Hey WeThreeAdventurers, I only saw two of you!! That breakfast IS ridiculous! I will tell Madonna and her Lovely Breakfast Ladies that they kept everything Hot and Fresh! I like the sink outside too, However, there is another crowd that like the sink inside the restroom so that they can get ready without waking everyone. I wish we had more...

I have yet to stay at this location, but I can only hope that it is as good as advertised since I will be getting charged for two nights, instead of one. Holiday Inn has a silly reservation policy that will not let you cancel a reservation...for any reason. Since I am in the military, I can only hope that...

Very nice place. The room was clean and very comfortable. We had no noise issues. The staff were very professional and helpful. The breakfast had many choices from cold cereal to omelets and everything in between. This is the place to stay if you get the chance.

Whitewing94! Is that anything like a Goldwing? Thank you so much for your recommendation! ** TRAVEL TIP always independently re-confirm your reservations with the hotel directly.

Drove in on a Saturday night and needed a room. They accomidated me. Room was nice and quiet. I left early so I didn't check out the breakfast. I would stay here again without question. Upon exiting the elevator, there is a really nice couch/fireplace sitting area for you to talk with guests or co-workers.
