If I could, I would give this hotel not even one yellow circle. It was so bad, we were only there an hour and after my 1 year old son was crawling on the carpet, I picked him up and his hands were black and knees were black (in fact his pants ended up getting stained I couldn't wash whatever...

Few nice things can be said about this place. I booked it because we were on a budget, and I was looking to save money. I now know that I should try to save money elsewhere, and above all not stay here again! Good: Low cost central location friendly housekeepers desk upgraded us to King room Bad: Traffic Noise horrible... More

We would have been better in a tent! There was a huge hole in the front door (semi-patched), an unpatched hole in the bathroom door, bare electrical wires in the bathroom ceiling. The mirror above the sink was broken and not very secure, chairs were broken and could be taken apart just by lifting off the pieces. There were patched... More

My husband booked this for our visit over 4th of July weekend...and has since lost all hotel booking privledges. He said a few others he called were full, and wanted something reasonably priced (we paid $100 which was about 4 times what this hotel was worth). Carpet looked like it had bloodstains in places. Fixtures in shower were coming off... More

This no-frills motel was a last-minute booking for us on a crowded summer weekend with poor hotel availability. The problem with motels on North Main Street in Durango is that they are too close to the road, and if you arrive late, you get a room that is only a few feet from the road, as ours was. The room...

To start with, our NONsmoking room included a blackened ceiling in the rooming area. Also, the edge of our mattress was breaking down, so we kept falling to that side of the bed. Additionally, the plaster in the bathroom was peeling off and there was an abundance of mold growing. The air conditioner unit was so dirty we didn't dare... More

I had to stay one more night in Durango while organizing an Emergency Return to Europe and after staying in another motel further up the street decided to give them a try as I was on budget and advertized price was kind of cool (42,85 $ tax incl.) Friendly staff over the phone and helpful when arriving, who helped me... More

The Budget Inn in Durango was average. I guess we got lucky but our room was very clean. We had a corner room that backed up to an alley but the alley backed up to a school so it seemed safe. The young man who works at the front desk is somewhat strange. He sits at the desk wearing sunglasses... More

Worst hotel experience ever. The desk clerk cussed (extremely bad language) at my 84 year old grandfather who has Parkinsons. My grandfather is a very calm and clean spoken man and it upset him greatly. As we were leaving the hotel my grandfather went to the desk clerk to inform him that the air conditioner was very loud and the... More
