“A delightful independent motel set against the mountains and close to all of Durango's attractions!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2010

I first visited Durango 4 years ago and stayed at the Siesta Motel based upon a friend's recommendation. I recently returned to Durango and from my previous experience chose to again stay at the Siesta. I would describe the rooms here as comfortable and basic. From my experience they have always been clean and well functioning. The motel offers a southwest ambiance and is set against a mountain backdrop and offers good views from your door. I have also found the location to be very convenient as you can walk to several stores and its only a short drive to downtown Durango and attractions such as rafting, hiking, fishing and the Durango to Silverton railroad. Being a smaller independent motel the owners are usually close by and eager to speak with visitors offering kindly advice on nearby attractions and eager to make a stay here as pleasant as possible.

We stopped in Durango for 1 night during our trip towards Mesa Verde National Park. What we did not expect to find amid green woods and high mountains was this mexican-styled motel. Rooms are oldie and definitely need to be refreshed but they have a colourful personal touch you will hardly find somewhere else. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with the common grassy area where you can sit down to have a chat with owners and other guests. Although downtown can only be reached by car, on the opposite side of the street there's a big supermarket. Durango itself was a bit of fun with its morning market, its cow-boy pubs and the old train station. On the whole a pleasant find, that I would recommend to anyone looking for a genuine place to stay.

We stay at the Siesta every year once or twice..It is always clean and comfortable..The beds are the best!!!.No extra charge for refrigerators/microwaves/kitchens in larger rooms

Durango is a very expensive place to vacation and this motel is priced lower and adequate to all others

The owners are a family and very friendly and hardworking as well as the house keeping staff

We felt very safe and will return again and again

We really enjoyed our stay at this cozy, eclectic vintage Motel. Ive stayed in many and usually the neon sign is as good as it gets. The rooms are usually shoddy and most of the other "tenants" are of the long term sort. Not the case at The Siesta. While the furniture is old, none of it is beat up or dumpy. The bed was better than what we sleep on at home and the old school kitchenette almost convinced us to stay another night. If you enjoy chains like Howard Johnsons, this place is not for you. If youre looking for a unique experience in a 1 of a kind setting then this is your place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I really have no complaints. $52 for the 2 of us, we couldnt have hoped for a better stay. Highly Recommended!

Me and my husband stayed at the Siesta in mid Sept. 09 and just loved it. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. They sent us to a couple great places to eat and told us to go on the train. We loved it. We stayed a few nights there and it felt like we were at home. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms very clean. You can tell they take pride in their property, it is very well maintained. If you love clean and comfortable than its the place for you. We will deffinately be returning. Thanks Siesta Motel You are the Best Kept Secret in Durango.

Visted Durango for a couple of days, late August 2009. Stayed two nights. Clean, very nice rooms and grounds. These owners aren't looking for good enough, they put in a lot of work to keep an older Motel looking it's best.The staff was frendly and informative about the town. Will stay here My next trip to Durango. Almost past it by because of some bad reviews, ( coming from about the same date, same group?" MakesYou Wonder") Give these Folkes a try and You'll agree they deserve only high marks.
P.S. Ride the Train to SIlverton, this Old Biker needed a nice relaxing day, what a view!
