This hotel is a block from downtown and a few feet from the river. Hotel is very pet friendly . A restaurant is attached and 20 others within walking distance. Hotel is very good at allowing early admittance.

After a night if camping, 12 mile hike, and freezing windstorm, this hotel provided us with the bare essentials for a reasonable price! Outdoor hotel with small rooms, but clean and comfortable to rest sore muscles with the outdoor adventures Durango and Mancos has to offer!! Attached restaurant and walking distance to mainstreet cafes and shops!

This was our second time here on a business trip. I booked a river side room for a river view, but on the ground floor, your view is of parking lot. Doesn't look a lot better on second (top) floor. Nice non-chain atmosphere and a handy, connected Applebee's (if you like that sort of thing).

I truly like this motel but maybe its just because I am in love with Durango. This little town is so cool and friendly! The motel is clean and nice enough, close to the downtown. You can just walk outside and cross the street and you are in the middle of cool old shops, bars and restaurants. The staff is... More

The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, the staff was extremely helpful and the location is great. The price is a steal considering its walking distance from downtown. It also has an Applebee's in connected to the hotel.

This motel is one of those whose rooms are arranged mom-and-pop style, that is you enter your room from the outdoors. Our room was clean, bright, and way roomy enough for the two of us. A very short walk leads you to the banks of the beautiful Animas River. Personnel were friendly, and the only hassle was that the WiFi... More

We had a booking for Mesa Verde Far View, but the NPS shutdown compelled us to look for an alternative. Thus we reached Durango and popped into Downtown Inn. The motel is OK. The room is what you may expect, and the location is excellent. We also enjoyed a back room - with a view to Animas River. Very Nice.... More

Motel style rooms at the back of a welcoming reception foyer and Applebee Restaurant. A good hotel right in the centre of town, whereas I noticed many of the other hotel chains were situated quite a long way out of town. Plenty parking at hotel – easier to walk into town’s main street than try and park there. Also situated... More

Pretty location on the river, but Durango itself was a little bit disappointing - more developed than I imagined. The Inn itself was fine, if a bit generic. This being said, we'd been spoiled with quirky lodgings the 5 nights prior to our Durango stay. The Inn was convenient enough to town, very convenient to the Durango-Silverton Railroad station.
