Best Western Turquoise Inn and Suites

535 E Main Street
Cortez, CO 81321
77 rooms


The Best Western Turquoise Inn & Suites offers beautiful accommodations, the finest in the Southwest, decorated to reflect our unique southwestern heritage, all the while boasting many of the comforts of home. We are perfectly located in the archaeological center of the world. Only minutes away from the world-famous Mesa Verde National Park, which was awarded the Conde Nast Travelers Choice Award in 1998, Hovenweep National Monument, Ute Tribal Park and Anasazi Heritage Center.

After experiencing our archeological heritage, you can also enjoy the cool beauty of our Colorado Rocky Mountains on a circle day trip into historic mining towns. Venture into the breathtaking splendor of the red monuments and culture of Monument Valley, and don't forget to stand in four states at the same time (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona) at the Four Corners Monument. Our area offers a wide variety of activities for the whole family, from wonderful hiking and biking trails in the San Juan Mountains to rafting and fishing on the Dolores River. In the evenings you can attend authentic Native American dancing and story telling in historic downtown Cortez or sit down with Lady Luck at the Ute Mountain Casino only 10 minutes away.

Our winters are also something to be experienced. You can cross-country ski on the abandoned quiet trails of the Mesa Verde National Park or try the world-class skiing for half price in Telluride. Summer in Colorado's Southwest is a truly unique experience.

After soaking up the Colorado sunshine, our warm, relaxing indoor jet pool, fountains and waterfalls add a refreshing touch to the end of a busy day of sightseeing or business. Take a quick dip in either pool or just enjoy the peaceful effects of the water. Our outdoor heated pool, open Memorial Day through Labor Day, is the perfect way to unwind. The pool temperature averages a pleasant 82-86 °F, and is surrounded by roses, columbines and hummingbirds. Adjacent to the pool is a small private courtyard, suitable for family gatherings. Take home a souvenir from our gift shop or sample some homemade fudge. Our deluxe complimentary continental breakfast is a great way to start your day with cereals, juices, assorted pastries, fresh fruits, coffee and tea, and more. We also offer guest laundry and plenty of free parking.
