Average hotel, nothing to get excited about. Great staff! Review must have 200 characters as a minimum, wonder if this is enough? Nope they want more drivel, I hate this stuff. How about now? WOW still not enough, what to say, what to say hope I can get up to the 200 count pretty soon, getting really tired, OK how... More

We saw the good reviews here and, based upon a previous experience at a cheaper place, decided to spend some more in BW Mountain Shadows. For what we wanted and needed for this stay, which was basically a long recreational weekend, it was perfect, and the service from everybody, especially Andy, was simply outstanding. I have to say, the level... More

My favorite thing about Mt. Shadows is that the pool is operational all year long. It's great for families and kids love it. They always know that after a long drive, day skiing or sightseeing they can "come home" to the pool and hot tub.

Because of a bad review just before our trip, I was very nervous about staying at Best Western, Shadow Mountain. But I have to say, we had no issues at all. In fact just the opposite. We had our grandson on the trip with us, we all were so tired and over being in the car, but he was in... More

We enjoyed our stay at this Hotel. Best Western Mountain Shadows is at the north end of town, out of the busy crowded main area, but close enough to be only a few minutes away by driving. Our room was comfortable, clean (other than the carpet which was soiled and needed to be shampooed- it was not terrible, but needed... More

Although I am not a fan of outside doors, this updated hotel has much to offer. I have stayed at 18 hotels in the past 12 months and it offered the most space - both sleeping AND bath. The refrig and microwave are located on the back wall, giving more space in the sleeping area and offering more counter space... More

Clean, pleasant staff, a bit pricey for a motel. Other motels in the area are half the cost. Not in walking distance of downtown but still very close and can drive within 5-10 mins. Located across the street (virtually) from the Recreation Center (a real treat).

We stayed one night so did not have the problems others had with the maid service. Yes, some may feel it's a little pricey but it's Durango so we felt the cost was reasonable. We had reservations so check in was a breeze. Staff checking in and checking out were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the... More
