“Simply put - great value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

First up I'd like to say that if you review a place you should at least get your facts straight. Did you actually stay in this particular hotel or the one down the road? And secondly, yes, you are entitled to your opinion. But if you've paid $55 and get two queen beds, his 'n' hers sinks, separate bathroom, TV, A/C, fridge and microwave as well as free WiFi - what is there to complain about? Surely not mold on some grouting. Believe me, we've stayed in some fabulous places round the world and they were prone to the odd stray hair on a pillow....
Peoples' livliehood rest on the unthinking comments of total strangers. There. End of rant.
Seriously though we spent two nights, and enjoyed (free) breakfasts and the chance to swap stories with staff and guests. The cleaning team gave useful tips on places to eat - one of which completely made our stay. (More elsewhere). Melissa, Dale, Andrea and metal-friend - you were brilliant and someone needs to say so!

Room Tip: Some of the downstairs rooms have a private sitting/eating area out back, and a second door.

I'm not sure what some of these reviewers are expecting out of a hotel in this price range. I paid 45 bucks and a mere 8 dollar pet fee, and I did NOT expect the Hilton! What I got was a clean room, a comfortable bed, an internet signal, a fridge a microwave and a good hot shower. What more do you want? If you have a problem, tell the staff. They'll bend over backwards for you. I had a slight problem in my room and they upgraded me at no additional cost, no hesitation, like they were very glad to do it. The silver haired Texan at the counter was the most delightful person to deal with, I wanted to linger just to converse with him. These people are kind and helpful and the rooms are a great bargain.

Room Tip: Room 116 even has a patio and a back door. Two beds with a divider for privacy. Unbelievable price...

Durango is a "kids" town! If your 20 years old and an outdoorsman, OK. If your a traveler and a senior citizen, go elsewhere! The rooms are VERY small, smelly and not too clean. Old and rundown! And very expensive. Almost $80. ( with tax) a night in mid September.. 2 very small pillows on a hard bed. ...No king size beds at all. Stayed here 4 nights and had to switch rooms because they gave us a mini bed the first night , Meant for one person... We made and paid for the room a month in advance, by computer or we would have moved..Could not get our money back.

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. The smaller room you stayed in the first night has a double bed and is a nice room but you are correct, it is better for one person. The second room you were in had a Tempur-Pedic style mattress so I hope you slept better the rest of your stay. Our facility is dated but we do try to keep it in good condition and we are doing upgrades as time and money allow. We are not as cheap as some of the off brand hotels but we have a much nicer clientel. Again we are sorry for your unpleasant stay but hope you will give us another chance in the future.

Sometimes hotels should be rated simply on their value. For example: Given what I paid, compared to what I could've paid, how was the property? Reviewing The Knights Inn falls into that category.

The motel is old, worn, and generally nothing more than okay. However, it was the cheapest online option in Durango while I was there. In fact, it was about HALF the price of the next chain option. So while it wasn't that great, it WAS a great value. And that fact means high marks from me.

On top of the value, it was also clean, bug-free, had good laundry facilities, and was full of pleasant vacationers like myself. Not the usual problem tenants of some budget places. I would definitly stay again... if the price was right.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will stay when you return to Durango. We do have a great group of people stay with us and we do not allow any nonsense that would disturb our guests. We do try to be competitive in our pricing and give people a clean, comfortable place to stay while in our beautiful town. There are cheaper options in town but buyer beware!

We were on the eighth night of a camping trip and wanted a break to get a shower and do some laundry. We were travelling with our dog, so we required a "pet-friendly" hotel. I scanned through the internet and found this one. The price was right - under $60, plus a fee for the dog - and they had a room available that had no rooms above or below.
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was large enough and clean, with cable TV and a big bonus - a GUEST LAUNDRY! It was just what we needed. Then, when we took our showers - complete Nirvana! I have never experienced a shower with such great water pressure! The in-window airconditioner was just adequate, but the noise drowned out the traffic sounds ouside, so it was ok.
All-in-all, the hotel is a 2 star, but it worked for the occasion.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We strive to provide our guests with a positive experience everytime they stay at our hotel. It is nice to see that our efforts do pay off when a guest lets us know they were happy at our hotel. Being an economy brand we are not able to provide all the amenities of some of the premium hotel brands but we do provide clean and comfortable rooms with awesome showers. Thank you for staying at our Knights Inn and we hope you will consider us on your next trip to Durango.

This room was small and outdated. The bedding was old and had tears in the bedspread. The baseboard heating was rusted in spots and the shower seemed to have mold growing in the caulking but I did not want to investigate too far. There has been no updating to this place in 20 years. At $72 a night it was overpriced even compared to other motels in the area which were renting for $50 per night.

Other reviews indicated the rooms were small and set up oddly which is an extremely accurate representation. I noticed when searching prior reviews that the management's standard response is that it is the other motel in the area and not theirs. I am certain this is the correct motel and there is no confusion. I would not stay here again at any price.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a good room in the place

I would like to apologize for the fact that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are still in process of updating our hotel and unfortunately you were in one of our rooms that had not been done yet. We do try to insure that our rooms are clean and upon investigation the discoloration in the shower was not mold, just discolored caulking which is being rectified next month. We do strive to make our guests happy and had you brought your problems to the manager, we would have gladly moved you to a room more to your liking. Again, we are sorry for the problems you encountered and hope you will try us again in the future.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the check-in staff were very polite and helpful during our stay, nothing was a problem, probably the best thing about this motel. We paid $78 plus tax for a queen room, the room is exceptionally small, 2 people in the bed can't watch the 23" TV as it is siutuated to one side and at the same level as the bed. The room has a fridge and microwave, the water pressure is good. They do not upply coffee making facilities, or coffee and breakfast consists of coffee, tea, bananas, sugar doughnuts or small cakes, probably the least varied we have had in 20 motels on this trip.

The beds were comfortable and we got good nights rest, we found we had to turn the aircon off as it was only a yard from the bed, it worked efficiently and it wasn't that loud, we have had much louder and innefficient. Good for a short stay
