This is a very clean and comfortable Best Western in the heart of Durango. Very quiet location away from traffic patterns. Within walking distance of the downtown shopping, restaurants and the Durango Silverton RR train depot. Very enjoyable place to stay with a very nice breakfast. The indoor pool and spa was very cozy and nicely done. I'd certainly stay... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a road trip. Nice rooms, very comfy apart from the weird double glass doors to the room with curtains,,why not a solid door?? But that's just a bit odd. The pool and hot tub were nice and the free drinks and breakfast were great. The location is great right next to the Train station... More

We were able to walk to the train station from here as well as to the downtown/restaurants. There was also a manager's special every night, offering two free drinks per person. Of course the cost of the hotel made up for that! Breakfast was mediocre, and our room was just okay. It was clean. Thankfully, my phone has a noise... More

It is what you expect from a Best Western, nothing more, nothing less. It is nice and quiet and within walking distance from the main street. Plenty of parking as well and free wifi. Breakfast was ok but nothing to write home about. Breakfast are can get crowded at times.

Very handy hotel, close to everything we wished to do. Great people at desk, very nice room with a wonderful bed, breakfast was superior to most with a huge selection. Internet easy to use and tv has lots of channels. I had requested no stairs and that was exactly what we received. If ever back in Durango this is certainly... More

We spent two great nights here while visiting Durango. Our room was a corner unit with a balcony and was HUGE! It was quiet, we had lots of nice fluffy towels, great wi-fi, super breakfast....more than the "usual fare" and then there was the Manager's Cocktail Party every night! Loved it! Walking distance to all the restaurants in town and... More

The location puts you right in town. You can walk to the Durango & Silverton Railroad, restaurants, shops and breweries. The hotel was very comfortable and the staff were great. Complimentary drink at night really relaxes you after a long day. Beautiful indoor pool and hot tub.

The hotel was built in the 1980's and the furnishings are from the 1980"s, but everything is in good order it's clean clean clean. The staff seemed eager to please and very helpful. This Best Western is behind the train station, I thought it might be nosy, but its quite and peaceful. The surrounding neighborhood is older and very pleasant... More

Thank you for the nice review. The hotel is older but all the furnishings in the rooms are less than 5 years old. The only item that we still need to replace is the artwork. We are happy that you enjoyed your time with us. The neighborhood is very nice. We do back up to 3rd Avenue, Durango's historic neighborhood... More
