We've stayed at Kelley place three times, and enjoyed every one of them. The hosts are always pleasant and always helpful, the accommodations are great, and the locatoin is special. We usually stay in one of the cabin rooms. They are spacious, clean, and well equipted (wifi access, fridge with small freezer, bar-b-q, microwave, large sofa). The bed is comfortable.... More

My two adult sons. my wife and I stayed at Kelly Place for one night after several days of touring the Southwest. For us is was the perfect respite: quiet, clean, well appointed, comfortable, with an excellent shower(!) and with a soothing gas fireplace. We were sorry that our time was limited and we did not get to go through... More

I wish I could comment on Kelly Place's rooms, their property, etc, but seeing as how I was not on their property for more than 2 minutes before deciding that there was no way in hell I would be staying, my review will have to stay at their hospitality... or lack thereof. Kelly Place being unwelcoming is an understatement. Just... More

Quotes out of context are heavily and unfairly biased. You seem to remember everything so well that you are using quotation marks, but you have conveniently forgotten all the insolent remarks your mother made to deserve this kind of response. Your emotional characterization is also inaccurate and inappropriate. Your group obviously knew you were not going to let anyone in... More

Hands-down the worst customer service I have ever experienced. When we first arrived on the property we were yelled and cussed at (yes really) for arriving before the check-in time and for parking in the wrong spot. We tried to explain that we were not trying to check-in, simply condensing our party to one car so we could go on... More

Please, do the right thing and avoid problems! They said they were arriving at 5 PM. They arrived 6 hours early, but instead of coming to the office, saying hello, and that they wished to park their cars here while they went hiking elsewhere, they parked in labeled spaces for other guests. When one of us approached and asked if... More

We stopped into Kelly Place on a recommendation from a friend. We did not have a reservation, merely wanted to check it out for future visits, either in a cabin or an RV space. We walked into the main building where a woman was cooking. She didn't even acknowledge us. I said hello and she just looked at me. I... More

These people were upset because I told them that hiking on Kelly Place property is reserved for guests only. We have a sign at the entrance to the property informing all that this is private property and that no public access to our beautiful archaeological sites is permitted. I was NEVER rude to them. They arrived unannounced when the office... More

We chose (and would happily recommend) Kelly Place as the perfect antidote to overly touristy Durango. Fantastic to just laze (in the lounge chatting to the other gests), in the garden suntanning, on the deck after dinner enjoying the starry sky and the local wines), or during one of the activities in the vicinity - the Anasazi ruins start on...

Thank you and your family for staying at Kelly Place! We are glad we could include you in the dinners for the group that was here then. As a bed and breakfast, we generally provide only breakfast and snacks, but with prearrangement, groups of 8 or more can have additional meals prepared for them. Bed and breakfast guests, such as...

When we visited Kelly Place, we walked into the central building where a lady was cooking dinner. She said nothing to us, and we thought she was a "hired hand." We proceeded down the hallway to try and find someone to check in, and there was no one in the office. We sat in the office for ten minutes waiting... More

Thank you for your review and expressing your feelings about Kelly Place. If you arrive prior to check-in time, it it entirely possible that your room will not yet be ready and that the owners may be involved in other tasks, such as cooking dinner for the group that was conducting a program here. I was not aware of your... More

We recently stayed at Kelly Place while touring the Southwest and we assumed it would offer amenities similar to other B+Bs we have stayed at. We were wrong. It started at check in. We went to the unoccupied office and wandered around until we approached the cook in the kitchen to check us in. She ultimately took care of us... More

We thank you for your review and for the review of your spouse. We strongly advise people to read their confirmation email.

We loved Kelly Place it is in a beautiful location and we had the 2 bedroom lodge which was fully equipped for cooking (not that we did that???)

This place is cool because it's on property with Anasazi ruins. They are really cool. You can hike forever here, although we just did a short jaunt. We got the room with a queen and two sets of bunk beds, which was perfect for our for kids. They loved it. They had fun in the room even with no TV,... More
