Hard to describe, let alone fairly rate, this place. It is a little strange and nothing like any place we have ever stayed before. Lou and Al, the proprietors, are the nicest people EVER, very friendly and down to earth. I SO want them to do well! The breakfasts that Lou makes and serves at her own kitchen table at whatever time you want in the morning are incredible. The room itself (we stayed in the "Western Room") is odd. VERY clean, and the bed is comfortable. The price for bed and breakfast at the height of summer in Durango is $110, incredibly cheap, believe me. But be prepared: the place and the neighborhood are both pretty funky (not unsafe, don't get me wrong, just, well . . .maybe the word is "lived-in.") The "kitchenette" looks like it dates from the 80s. No real bathroom. The shower (nicely tiled and squeaky clean) steps right out into the kitchen, and the toilet is in a closet. You have to brush your teeth, shave, etc., in the kitchenette sink. No AC, just a swamp cooler, but that was OK once it got going, after all this is Colorado. Decor is cute, kind of western Kitsch. Walking distance to City Market is a plus. We had our two dogs with us, and you could not ask for a more pet friendly place. Right outside the room door is a large, fairly shady enclosed area that they could run around in. The Animas River Trail (my favorite) is right down the street.If you don't care about luxury and you are up for a little adventure and "local color" and don't want to spend much money, go for it. I would pick this over the Super 8 any day. Just don't expect a "normal" sort of place and you will be happy.
Make sure you ask for the Western Room, the other rooms look like they may be a little dark.
