The location is great. We enjoyed the steam/pool room. The rooms have been cosmetically re-done since my last stay. Staff was nice. Nice hot shower with great water pressure. However, the heating unit did not operate as well as the shower. It would cycle off and on literally every 20 seconds. The tv, which is an upgraded flat screen tv... More

The rooms are very nice. Modern and seem recently updated. If not it means the hotel is very well maintained. Nice to have an indoor pool and hot tub in winter. Great price and waffles for breakfast :-). Hotel staff was pleasant. Will stay here again.

The hotel was very good. It is a little dated on the outside but our room was updated and modern and also very clean. The free breakfast was also very good. Would stay again and recommend to others. The hotel is close to lots to do.

We had booked in for five nights and I was surprised to find it more like a motel than a hotel (in appearance) with the carpark right in front of the rooms, located off the main street. It certainly didn’t offer a feeling of security or safety. On a few nights the hotel was fully booked and it was a... More

We stayed at here one night as we were traveling through Durango. It is located on the north end of town. We had a room on the second floor with a king bed. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. There was a sofa, sofa table, desk, dresser, small fridge, microwave, and single cup coffee maker. Most... More

The Best Western Mountain Shadows in Durango was great! (Note: There are three Best Westerns in this town.) We were in room 221 for two nights. The room was very clean. There was a small refrigerator and even a microwave. The four pillows were soft and squashy. TV was good quality with an easy to clean remote and a comfortable... More

Not wild about motel exteriors (outdoor-facing rooms) but inside it was roomy, clean and comfortable. I liked the "clean remote" for the TV, too -- thinking of all those strangers' hands on the TV remote control always gives me pause. The breakfast was OK, but needed eggs, sausage or bacon as another hot option. I enjoyed my waffle, though. I... More
