excellent value for the money.

When I think Holiday Inn Express, I think Super 8-type quality, and that is apparently not the case. This room had comfortable beds, adjustable heat, a nice bathroom and friendly staff. I found this to be an excellent value for the money and would look for another HI Express.

Cortez is closer to Mesa Verde than Durango is, and it is not as built up. Coming from the NW, I found this town a good home base to see the pueblos in the area.

noisy neighbors

The room directly above us was extremely loud. Called hotel lobby multiple times but they were not able to do anything about it.

Holiday Inn Express

Very convenient. Clean. It had in room internet access. It was clean. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was good, with healthy options. The pool looked nice, but we did not swim.

Nice hotel

The hotel was nice but our room did not get cleaned. We had to ask for supplies and were only offered free bar drinks as compensation (which we could not use because we had our children with us).

comfortable stay in cortez

We enjoyed a comfortable stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Cortez. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms and public areas were clean and decorated. The beds and pillows were comfy. The internet was easy to access. The pool was cold for an indoor pool on a March evening. We enjoyed dinner at the Brewery. They have an excellent stout.

Great bang for your buck

We stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express Cortez, but were very impressed. Check in was super easy and the front desk manager was friendly and helpful. The hotel is very well maintained and our room was super comfy, clean and well-appointed for a hotel in this class. We didn't get to indulge in the pool which looked nice and inviting, but we did sample the free breakfast which was re-stocked and maintained well. We got a great night's rest and were refreshed and ready for the rest of our journey! We'll absolutely stay there again!
