“Nice motel in convenient downtown location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

We wanted a room in the historic downtown location so we could walk to restaurants and bars. This motel was perfect. We enjoyed a couple of beers during happy hour and listened to some live entertainment at an outdoor plaza. For dinner we ordered pizza which we took back to our room to eat on our balcony. We are from the rainy Pacifc Northwest so it was a pleasure to enjoy our dinner outside.

The room was comfortable. Considering the downtown location it was probably a good deal at $108, but chain motels north of downtown were advertising prices of $49 per night (this was in late May). The room had a mini fridge, but no microwave oven.

The woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful.

As others mentioned, the breakfast wasn't much. They did have a microwave availabe in the lobby so we went to Albertsons grocery and bought a couple of frozen buritos to get some protein to start the day.

We would stay here again if we wanted a downtown location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony if the weather is good.

We stayed for one night and were happy with the room for the price. It had obvious new carpet and was clean. It is located right in town so you can walk everywhere.

It had a pool and hot tub. Although we did not use either, they seemed fine.

The biggest negative was the terrible breakfast. Skimpy, poor choices. Might as well not have anything when what is put out os poor quality and has little variety.

This is absolutely the best value in the historic downtown. Friendly check-in with a wonderful dinner suggestion (Tequilla's). Great end to a long day's drive by being able to park, unload, and walk to get dinner. Our room was clean and comfortable with an added bonus of a balcony. Breakfast was oatmeal, which is exactly what we needed to get going. We were able to leave our car in the Lodge's parking lot to take a walk around town before having to get back on the road. I would definitely stay here again.

Room was clean and just fine for one night. Great location, which is why I picked it. Walking distance to lots of places, including the train.

This hotel is right in the historic district and probably the best value. Although the rooms need updating, they're very clean. Not much of a breakfast...doughnuts and other breads and coffee, but there's plenty of good food nearby. They DON'T have a washer or dryer. Staff is pleasant and the nicest part was when the housekeeper found my ring and turned it in to the management. Very honest person named Rosemary. So, I recommend the Durango Lodge.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony
