This is an older small Bestwestern with two stories and few rooms. There is an outdoor pool and jacuzzi with a big glass dome over it to keep the area sauna like. The water was comfortable and pleasant. The rooms were a bit older, but had a small refrig, microwave and TV. The beds were okay comfort-wise. We asked for... More

Older hotel, minutes from downtown. Nice friendly, polite staff. Very nice enclosed pool/hot tub area. Nice breakfast options and dining area. Waffles, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt offered. Free juice water, coffee all day long. Nice shower! The bed was alittle hard, but not bad; flat screen tv, free wi-fi.

This hotel doesn't look very modern from the outside as its a pull up to your room motel style place, but the rooms have been updated to give it a modern feel. New furniture and updated bathrooms make this hotel a great value in Durango. Breakfast was just ok - your standard, and we didn't have time to check out... More

Flowers around the property, friendly and knowledgeable staff, nice breakfast room, my favorite tea bags, plenty of yogurts, boiled eggs, wheat toast, PLAIN oatmeal, microwave and fridge in the room, free internet...

The bathrooms are much more spacious than the other similarly priced Best Western in town. Conveniently located near super market. Rooms away from street are more desirable ... less street noise. Unique indoor pool and hot tub is a plus.

I expected a hotel, but this is the old-fashioned motel design with rooms opening directly onto the car park. Having said that, the room was nice, had two queen beds, a fridge/microwave, flat screen tv, and (nice touch), two wash basins. Good choice of tv channels, and a pool/hot tub if that's your bag. The continental breakfast was fine and... More

Booked 3 nights, comfy beds, kind of small but very clean room. Covered pool and hot tub were open pool was quite chilly hot tub felt great! Good location. Breakfast selection is minimal basic continental choices. Not our 1st time to stay here and won't be the last.
