“Fine & Dandy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Our room was just fine. Queen size bed is okay and the location close enough to anywhere you'd want to go in Durango. Nice to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Sheets and towels were clean. One issue: the temperature of the water while showering fluctuated from HOT only to COLD only a few times. Ugh. Otherwise, it's an okay place to stay.

Room Tip: the further you are from the road, the quieter the room

The hotel is dated and a little crummy for the price. The room was clean, though! It is also a little farther from downtown, but not too far. There are some places close enough to walk to. I thought the staff was nice. If I was staying for more than one night, I would have stayed somewhere nicer.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Boy did we need a place to rest and relax. We came to Durango to visit our nephew and godson, see the sights and take a break. Snow and heavy rain were predicted. What a snug little place the Adobe Inn was for us! We had a little kitchen and 2 sofas in the room, so we were able to do a lot of hanging out right there! We spent 2 nights there, sitting out the weather. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. We even did our laundry there before getting back on the road. So reasonably priced and close to everything.

Room Tip: We were in the back which was away from the road and very quiet.

Easy to find and convenient location but the breakfast was basic as we're the rooms. We were in a non-smoking room but it smelt like someone had been smoking in it. Plenty of hot water and clean towels ok for a stopover but nothing more

The bed is horrible. Old and very very uncomfortable. It's an old motel. Seems reasonable clean. But if you can't sleep what's the point. You have to take trolley downtown. Motel is right on the main busy street. Noisy air conditioner in room.

Durango is a very expensive place to stay in tourist season, and the Adobe Inn would probably be a $45 a night motel if it wasn't in a resort town. It was okay, though. The worst thing was the shower-the water pressure was so low you had to run laps to get good and wet, and my usual 15 minute shower took 30 by the time I got clean and rinsed. The bathroom needed renovation, and the whole room could've used a thorough cleaning. Nothing disgusting, just dust and grime in the corners, and the back of the bathroom door looked pretty icky. That being said, there were pluses. The front desk clerk was friendly and accommodating. The bed linens were good quality, and were clean and crisp. The bath linens were likewise good quality, fluffy clean, and there were plenty of them. There was a fridge and microwave, but no coffee maker in the room. Breakfast was convenience store type pastries, but they were good and fresh. The decor was retro, (not sure if they meant it to be!) but we thought it was cute. Considering the prices in Durango, if you don't want to pay a fortune for your room, the Adobe Inn will do you okay.

For our trip, our rooms were some of the cheapest in Durango. So I wasn't expecting much. The beds were comfortable. The furniture and decor were older. They had the ultra low flow shower heads so the shower wasn't great. It was mostly quiet in the rooms, but do expect road noise while in the hot tub because it faces a busy road. The packaged pastries were the kind you buy at a convenience store.

They were friendly at the desk and allowed us an extra hour to checkout so we could do a morning river trip.

This is an average motel on a busy street. So I wonder about the excellent reviews. It's just not that excellent.
