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.
