“Low end of the scale”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Don't let the outside of this motel fool you! Room appeared clean and staff were nice but that is about it for favorable comments. For $69 I wasn't expecting palace but... No clock, no hair dryer, exposed carpet tack (which I stepped on), no hooks or bar for wet towels, terrible wifi signal, no coffee in room... I could go on. At least find somewhere cheaper if what I've said doesn't bother you.

Room Tip: Look around at a number of travel sites before booking.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

After reading several unfavorable reviews on this property, I must admit we were somewhat skeptical of renting a room there. Fears were totally unfounded. Room was clean, beds were comfortable, air conditioning, shower and refrigerator worked well...no complaints whatsoever. There are few things in this world that are "perfect". We have come to the conclusion that there are a lot of "glass half empty" people out there with too much time on their hands. Thanks for the good nights rest!

I came through town from Phoenix last week. Many other hotels were full or much too expensive. The Spanish Trails was wonderful and all you could expect for the reasonable price. The staff were very friendly. The trolly station was right outside the hotel, which went downtown and up to the college. The entire experience was pleasant and I will most definitely return.

My wife and daughter were traveling through the area and had to take what was available. This place was cheap and you get what you pay for.

It had a toilet (as opposed to an outhouse, if any of you remember what that was), hot and cold water, a TV, and lights.

Not much more can be said.

Room Tip: Only if you have to.

Theory desk clerk was helpful. First room was too noisy and too busy with long term tena.nts. I was moved to a nicer much quieter room. The front window was nearly falling out. No security whatsoever here was scary. Hot water was very slow. Heat was not good. I would not recommend this motel to anyone. It is large has many rooms some with long term tenants. This motel needs a complete makeover remodel improvements. It is old dirty not well maintained. Nice location across from city market. This place is very busy people all around dogs around. Noisy from highway 550 all day.

If you are on a budget, or sometimes just don't care where you sleep: this is your choice. We were on our way through and ended up in Durango. Checked various hotels on the Main Ave. and decided to go for this one.

The 6 other hotels we asked were all $120/150 for a double queen, and with $59 this room was a bargain.

And yes, the stairs are rusty, the rooms are outdated and the hotel needs a make-over. But it is not as bad as some reviews say.

City Market and lots of shops/restaurants are within walking distance. WiFi worked OK. Good value for the price.

This motel is a combination of a number of motels put together to make up the Spanish Trails Inn. This property aims for the low price only traveler in a town like Durango where rooms run a little pricey because tourism is their economy. The rooms were dark, tired, and in dyer need of help. This motel offers nothing other than a secure place to lay your head to save you $20.00 a night from other rooms around the neighborhood. I'd check around before settling on this place. At least it isn't scary.

southwestmama55, Manager at Spanish Trails Inn and Suites, responded to this review, September 12, 2012
Spanish Trails does not pretend to be a chain hotel with fancy amenities. We offer clean rooms
for a budget price. Our rates are usually at least 50% of what the well-known chain hotels are offering.
Most of our guests realize this when they check other rates and are very happy to spend less on their hotel so they can spend their vacation money on doing the fun things Durango has
to offer them.
