We were here for 3 nights early last week. Last time we were in Durango we were at a condo in Tamarron, but decided to stay closer to town this time. The Mountain Shadows was a great place and a great value. Located on the north end of the main drag, so not as much congestion or noise. The staff... More

Very nice hotel and very close to Animas River and Trails. One of the few hotels that had a private indoor pool. Very pleasant staff and nice to have some snacks available all day (ccokies, yogurt, eggs, juice...). I definitely recommend this hotel. My only wish was if they could have more selection for hot breakfast in addition to waffles.

Having stayed the previous night in the worst property I ever visited, anything would work. So maybe I had low expectations but I liked the property. Two-story and on the older side, the rooms were large and clean. There was a fridge in the room. Really, everything you needed was here. The staff was great. Being with a cycling group... More

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

There is always something missing when I stay at a hotel, but not this time. This one has all the little things I like to see, it's amazing! 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
