I stayed at the Caboose motel one night on a 16 day road trip. The hotel is older and the rooms are very basic, but I was pleased at the cleanliness and the bed was wonderful (cute addition of a teddy bear on the top). I was able to park right in front of my room, which made loading/unloading very... More

The room was pretty dated and that made it seem not quite clean. The sheets were fresh and the towels were clean, but I think it could probably use a good top to bottom scrub. It was comfortable though and I wasn't squeamish about settling in to sleep. The only AC is a window unit which doesn't do a great... More

The motel is nothing fancy; the staff at the front desk was very genuine and friendly. The motel is not right in the middle of town but still close enough which makes it a great choice for me (on 550 on the North end of town). The parking lot was in great shape and there is a parking spot in... More

We would NOT recommend the Caboose Motel. We stayed for two nights at this place. It was NOT clean, the smoke detector was hanging down from the ceiling and the lamp did not have a bulb. It was NOT close to the main area of Durango as we had been told by management when we booked the room. The room... More

This was a very nice place to stay. The staff was very genuine and helpful. The hotel was quiet and conveniently located. The place was clean and cozy. I liked that I could sit outside and see that I was surrounded by mountains. I will probably stay here again.

I never give bad reviews but this place demands one! The Caboose Motel is run down, smelly, and dirty! There is no breakfast or coffee. Found hairs everywhere from previous occupants😵 The management was so incredibly rude when confronted with these things that we left early and demanded a refund. We would have been better off sleeping in our car!... More

Cosy family motel. Very friendly staff. The rooms are cosy and clean. The interior is in the oldstyle wood, and is kept excellent. It is a harmfull place to stay, so we booked an extra night to explore Durango. Free and fast wifi. There is a trollystop next to the motel to downtown Durgango.

This is what we really like in a Motel, Family owned and they are proud of it, you can see that in how the whole place looks and how they treat you. The rooms are small but like they were in the old days, there is a parking spot in front of your room and the room itself is clean... More

The caboose motel bills itself as a charming little place in Durango. If "charm" means no breakfast, no coffee in the room (there was a pot and very pretty cups but no coffee) and no shampoo or conditioner along with an aged, saggy bed then this is your place. The oddly designed parking lot was more friendly to the numerous... More

Nothing fancy but clean and affordable. The room we had was very quiet considering the motel is located on the main street through town. Very friendly staff at the front desk, helpful with ideas of what to do and where to eat. Not within walking distance of the historical part of town, but there is a trolley that picks up... More
