Downtown is a couple blocks away. Many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Narrow Gauge Rail Road depot is 2 blocks from Best Western. Indoor pool is close to all rooms. Complimentary cocktails in the evening and breakfast in the morning are hard to beat.

This inn is convenient to the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad station and parking lot. Breakfast starts at 6:30 am, enabling people to get to the first train by the 7:30 am cut off time. We received a warm greeting upon check-in. The room was spacious. The sink was separated from the toilet and shower, making it more efficient... More

We had a room with 2 queen beds, microwave and fridge. There is an indoor pool. Room was very clean. Usual help yourself breakfast was included. Free parking. Free drinks 5-7, we did not participate. It is around the corner from the Durango and Silverton train station. Lots of shops and eateries within walking distance.

This was the first time I stayed here in the Summer and it was very busy compared to my Winter visits. However the friendliness and service of the staff was just as wonderful as my Winter visits.

This site was a great location because it is close to the Durango & Silverton RR Station. The RR brings a lot of visitors to the area, and the townsfolk seem friendly and hospitable. There is not the hustle & bustle that you see in the large cities; more of a laid back atmosphere... and, this is good when you... More
