Stayed at this Best Western over New Year's eve. Thoroughly enjoyed the town of Durango, but I overall do not recommend this hotel.
Initially, based on a map search, I thought it would be a feasible walking distance to downtown; however the highway shoulder is not a safe walking route. Additionally, I had hoped the Best Western name would mean a no-frills decent, quiet place to sleep. This hotel lived up to its name in the cleanliness of the room, however it was a not a quiet place to sleep. The layout is such that every room faces the parking lot and the highway. Any activity outside your door is heard loud and clear, and if you are so unfortunate to have noisy neighbors who think 3 a.m. is a good bedtime, you are out of luck.
Overall, it's not that this is a terrible hotel - it is a clean place to sleep in Durango. However, given the layout of the hotel and the gamble that you will have respectful neighbors, you may not get a good night's sleep. Additionally, given that there are a plethora of other choices close to downtown offering perks such as a historic experience, luxurious accommodations, or competitive pricing, this is not your best option for experiencing the town of Durango.
Second floor on far end of building (to minimize exposure to foot traffic outside your door).

Our sincerest thanks for your review. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and work hard to maintain these high standards. You make some excellent points for other travelers to consider when booking lodging in Durango. Indeed, we are located about 3/4 mile west of the historic downtown area. Althought it is not really feasible to walk to downtown, we are still close. This proximity allows us to offer a more competative rate if you are not opposed to driving to downtown thereby saving some money. In addition, we highly recommend considering a suite, which has the bedroom located in the back. As an exterior corridor Inn, often, guests appreciate the easy with which they can unload the car by pulling up right in front of their rooms in exchange for being adjacent to the highway. We regret that you did not get a good nights sleep on New Years. Please know that the majority of the rest of the year, we have very respectful and rested guests! Thanks for the terrific input and your helpful comments for others.
