This was a very busy motel. We stayed two nights and one of the nights they were sold out. It is a two story motel where the rooms exit outside. If you get there at the right time there are fresh baked cookies and fruit flavored water, i.e., cucumbers and strawberries. There is no elevator so if you cannot do... More

Upon arrival we saw about 25 motorcyclists arriving and we groaned: This is going to take forever! Wrong - the smiling staff got all of us checked in quickly. Also figured breakfast the next morning would be a mess and run out of food. NOT THE CASE! Everything was as neat and organized and well-supplied as ever. Three days earlier... More

The management of this Best Western is trying very hard to have a nice place but, when we were there, it came up short. When we got to our room the air conditioning was running "full blast" and the thermostat said 59 degrees. We turned up the heat all the way and it stopped the A/C but nothing heated up.... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 night, the staff were so friendly and gave me all information that I needed. The room was so clean and the bed was confortable, the wi.fi was fast and reliable. Breakfast was various and good quality. The trolley stop (the trolley is free) is near to the hotel and you can go to... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for 5 nights. I got a good deal on the room from a popular website. The motel is on the north end of Durango but it's only a 5 minute drive to downtown. It's a short walk to the Animas river trail or the Animas mountain trails. I found it to be clean and... More

Stayed at this motel for four nights and was completely satisfied with the comfort of the room, cleanliness and helpful staff. The location was centrally located . The city trolley was very useful having a pickup stop close by.

I am shocked that this MOTEL (it is *not* a hotel as many others state) has such high reviews. I would strongly discourage you from booking this property. We stayed here for 2 nights on a recent visit to Durango. We got a 2 bedroom unit with a living room. Although there was quite a bit of space, the rooms... More

We usually try to stay at small, locally owned hotels, although this hotel has ruined us for these types in Durango. We have already been back to the area since our initial stay in the beginning of June and had the same, excellent experience. Very attentive staff. Always busy at check in although staff makes sure to great you as... More

This is an older motel, but the rooms have been renovated and are in good shape. Overall our two nights here were a good experience. Hotels in Durango during peak times are a bit expensive, but this was a good compromise of price and quality. The pool is different looking with the big translucent dome, but it was clean and...

We happened to be there during bike week and all the rooms were rented. The bikers had multiple people in one room and each had a cycle that took a parking space. We had to park around the corner on the street. When asked about it the night staff did not seem to care and were a bit curt. There... More
