Smaller older property. Parking in front of rooms. Right on highway 160, so if traffic noise bothers you this is not the best choice in Durango. The motel has a lovely lawn in front with big shade trees and even barbecues for guest use. Also playground equipment for kids. Sleeping area of rooms is large. Bathrooms are small. It's clean, comfortable, and a good value. An easy walk to town if you are used to walking. The owners are very nice and accommodating. Having said that, on my stay they put me in a room they had reserved for someone else and asked me to move to another room which was full of gnats as the door had been left open. Also this seems to be a place where oil and gas workers stay and they were not very quiet, slamming doors on rooms and trucks very early in the morning. This motel has been for sale for quite a while, with no takers so there may be some weariness at play in the owners and staff.
