This little place has an old world feel about it. Reasonable place to stay but no amenties such as pool,jacuzzi or even continental breakfast. However price is right and you would be hard put to find a cleaner but semi secluded place to stay. Always go back to here when I am in Durango

We love Durango and decided to stay at the Caboose Motel after seeing it advertised in a travel book. The rooms have a '50s feel to them, with a western flair. We had a room close to the road, yet there was very little road noise. Comfortable and charming.

I have stayed in three different rooms now at The Caboose. All have been amazingly clean. The beds were comfortable. The rooms eclectic but homey. The manager, Terri, is always so polite and helpful. We've met the owner and she seems like a super nice lady too. The ONE AND ONLY complaint I have, I'd love to see bigger TV's... More

I needed a place for one night and didn't want to spend a lot. The caboose is like stepping back in time to the motor lodges of the 60's where you park right outside your door. It isn't a resort and isn't modern, but it is clean and gets the job done. The baths had been remodeled and the bed... More

Yes, this is a small, older motel with a teeny, tiny bathroom, but it was clean and much less expensive than the bigger chain motels/hotels in town. We spent 3 nights here while dropping our daughter off at college and it did the job. A nice, comfortable, big bed. Close to the college. The room did get a little hot,... More

Came into Durango for the night and was very pleased with our checkin, she was helpful and pleasant! Our room was small but had everything we needed! Coffee in morning was good! Sure it's quite dated but it had character which adds to our memories of Durango! Felt rate was high for what it was, but it is summer and... More

We chose this motel based on Trip Advisor reviews and can say the property exceeded our expectations. The desk manager was great! She provided us with recommendations for our meal(s) and free local transportation services. The AAA rate was great and if we are in the Durango area again, we'll give the Caboose our business.

Okay. I'm going to be upfront and say that the list of rules and instructions was a bit off putting. BUT, it matched the homey, quirky, familiar comfy quaint thing that I would go back for. I'm not sure I will try another hotel in Durango now. If the Caboose is full, I'll put my name on the list and... More

Pulled into Durango with 2 kids and no room reservations in town. Pulled into about 4 places along Main Ave and found prices way too high for what they offered. I mean, $149 for a basic room just doesn't sit we'll with me. Almost took a room at the Budget Inn for $54 but let's jus say it wasn't quite... More

Getting an affordable place to stay in Durango is always a challenge. This is a Mom and Pop American owned and managed motel centrally located and very comfortable. Biker friendly the staff goes the extra mile to ensure a great stay. No breakfast but close to several good restaurants. Will stay here again
