We stayed here for 2 nights and the price is right! Great, spacious rooms and well maintained property. The pool is clean. Rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The only downside is the king size bed with what I would call throw pillows - not big enough for 2 grown adults. The breakfast is good and the staff is extremely... More

It had been a year since I had stayed here. They have gone through a complete remodel. Wow great granite topped chest of drawers, Nice little frig and micro area. I loved the shower, the bed was super comfortable. I love being able to open a window, and the convenience of having the car right out your door. The door... More

We chose this hotel because we liked the looks of the pool online. It turned out to be a great pool and hot tub, clean and well kept. The staff were very nice and helpful and I was surprised at the FULL breakfast each day that included bacon, eggs and make-your-own waffles. It's an older hotel but the room we... More

We stayed here in early March for 3 days while skiing DMR and the prior reviews were pretty good so we went with it. All in all it was not bad and the furniture, beds, and bath had been upgraded. However the wallpaper in the bath had split from floor to ceiling in a couple places and the old door... More

I'll start out with the cons: The beds were very uncomfortable, so much so that even my 15-yr old son didn't sleep well. Also, this is more of a motel-style facility, with the doors on the outside. Pros: The staff, pool and hot tub were great. The internet worked fine as did the TV. The fridge and microwave were nice... More

The outdoor dome covering the pool area is very cool. The pool was warm and it was deeper than most pools at 9 feet. The hot tub was also relaxing. I loved the water feature next to the hot tub. Great price for the room.

I have stayed at this property at least 4 times now. Once I find a consistently clean and comfortable hotel, I try and stay there. The staff is always great. The breakfast is quite good. The bathrooms are updated and the beds and pillows are excellent. Stores and restaurants are within walking distance and the trolley line runs right by... More

We so enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Mountain Shadows in Durango. Big comfortable clean room with great beds, great TV, fast wifi, nice heated pool and hot tub and tremendous breakfast buffet. The kids loved it and said we need to stay in Best Westerns exclusively from now on. So here we are two nights later, on the... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. The room was very clean. But the mattresses were so hard, none of us slept very well all 3 nights we stayed there. We even considered switching hotels after the first night, but stayed in the end.

There are a lot of choices in Durango, but for them money, you can't do much better. We were checked in by a friendly welcoming young lady who ensured we got the room location we wanted andf who provided a wealth of information on the immediate area. She also introduced us to a huge platter of fresh home made cookies!... More
