Set in the historic area of Durango near the Durango - Silverton railway station and within easy walking distance of all the amenities in town.

We stayed here based on a few recommendations; it is pretty basic, and clean, but the location cannot be beat. They have a nice hot breakfast each morning. Everyone at this Best Western is very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I spend the Thanksgiving holiday in Durango and found this hotel to be quite a gem. Very reasonable rates with extras like a lovely breakfast to start the day and cocktails and snacks to end the day. These two items made a good value even better...we'll be back.

We were greeted pleasantly at the front desk both nights that we checked in. The gentleman at the front desk was very help and knowledgeable about the area and places to go. The breakfast had a wide variety of offerings. The beds were very comfortable. Good price for what you get.

The town of Durango is a wonderful town to visit. Love all the shops and restaurants. Best Western Plus was a GREAT place to stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was delicious with lots of choices and good coffee.

This hotel was very accommodating. Room was a little dated, but clean, and spacious. Great free breakfast and cocktails in the afternoon. Walking distance to downtown Durango. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

The room was very big, the shower hot, the bed a good size and with good comfort.

Your right around the corner from the cute little downtown, so in that regard it is a great location. I wasn't here for the train, but it was right next door.
