The Econo Lodge in Durango exceeded my expectations. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the waffles at breakfast were so good I made a second. If I travel back to Durango I will make reservations at the Econo Lodge.

I stayed one night passing through town. I was disappointed to find there was no fridge or microwave in the room. There was a noticable mildew smell every time I entered as well. Otherwise the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable, one of the better I have experienced in many hotels. The WIFI & internet was reasonably... More

This was a good hotel to stay when driving through the city. The front desk was very nice. The free breakfast was not good at all. All of the bread and bagels were hard and felt like they were 3 days old. But, the waffles were good! I would stay again but not more than a day.

Large continental breakfast included 2 juices, many teas (including herbal), coffee, bakery goods, oatmeal, and waffle maker with fresh batter. Large, clean bathroom had been recently redone with larger marble countertop, and looked new, with strong hot water in shower/bath. Arrived late and still received quiet room in corner, away from street noise. Easy to find on main north-south street,... More

At this price, you're not going to get luxury. But the room was clean and a good size. So if you're after an economical room, this is a good bet. They even folded the towels in a pretty way! We had a room upstairs and it was pretty quiet. It is close to the highway, but with the heater on,... More

While stopping through Durango on an impromptu road trip, we stopped by the Econo Lodge for the night and enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and we found a great rate here. The room was basic but nice, and had everything we needed. For a slight upgrade we could have gotten a king with a fridge and microwave,... More

Excellent staff, friendly, helpful, attentive and caring. The overall appearance was fresh and clean. The room was well appointed, smelled fresh, and all areas were clean. Excellent bed and shower. Dark drapes helped, but would have preferred a blackout one also. For the price, we hit the jackpot.

We set off early for Durango as the weather forecast suggested that many stops were to be had on the 200 mile journey from Taos. Unfortunately, it was wrong - overcast, raining and 37oF - so no stops. Arrived at Econo Lodge almost 3hrs before official check-in. But Alice at the front desk could not have been kinder or more...

We stayed at the Econo Lodge in Durango during early October. The sweet lady at the front desk was afraid we would be cold and insisted on providing an extra space heater.
