...I stay in Durango a lot over the weekends, and I've always wanted to stay here. There's a sign on the front of the property "last hotel for 150 feet". It makes you laugh. It's right next door to the Residence Inn.
This place is darling. It's a smal - local motel - no chain. It has rooms with King bed, queen beds, and also Kitchenettes. The prices are much more than reasonable. It does not have any breakfast provided, but the store is a short 3 minute drive. If you need a small refrigerator or microwave put in your home, they will gladly do it. They do provide a coffee maker also.
The rooms are quaint and VERY clean - the beds were very comfortable, too. There is a small grassy area with playground equipment for the kids. There is a also a picnic table and grill if you're so inclined.
I was very impressed. The owners were very nice and go out of their way to assist you. A definate A+++ in Durango. Will definitely stay again...
