Step back in time with a stay at this charming themed hotel, which combines a nostalgic appearance with modern comforts. Each room is a different “year” and decorated to match–so it’s up to you whether you want to stay in the 50s, 60s, or 70s! The accommodations are clean and spacious, the property is quiet, and the staff is friendly–so although it’s certainly not a luxury hotel, you’ll be well taken care of (and can’t beat the value).
Before you head out to Mesa Verde for the day, enjoy the free continental breakfast, which features basic fare like bagels, cereal, yogurt, etc. There are refrigerators but not full kitchenettes in the rooms, so you won’t be able to cook very much on your own.

Retro Inn is a true gem. Great location, Very comfortable bed, sparkling clean rooms, hot shower with loads of water pressure, nice touches with kuerig coffee, microwave, fridge and great ambiance . I stay here every time I am going through Cortez and would recommend it to anyone!
This is a great place to stay before visiting Mesa Verde. The room was very clean and decorated in a funky way. The staff was pleasant and the breakfast was fine...I had a.bagel with cream cheese and yogurt. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
