Dit hotel is dé plek om Mesa Verde vandaan te verkennen. Je zit midden in het National Park met een adembenemend uitzicht over de omgeving. De kamers zijn tip top in orde en voorzien van alle gemakken. Zeer vriendelijke ontvangst en een prima restaurant. Gratis wifi beschikbaar.

... Navajo traders we pushed on to our stop for the next two nights, Cortez, Colorado. The town is at 6,300 feet and to the east the La Plata mountains go up to 13,000 feet.
