“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western. Rooms were very clean and service was good. They had cookies when we arrived, and the staff was friendly. The shampoo in the room was very nice, and the beds were comfortable. It was great to have a microwave and refrigerator in our room. We were impressed with their breakfast selection. Our daughter loved the pool.

They knew what was going on!! in so many words! They had our check-in ready, also gave us a choice of upper/lower floors. Told us about the pool, guest services, etc. The last day we had a BIG change of plans, we had seen the train boarding & called the front desk becuz it was going to be check out day, nstead they offered to book the room ahead of time for us so we could ride the train and our belongings would be safe! i luved their hospitality! I would book and refer to anyone in staying ther!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We booked this hotel sight unseen through a popular online travel site and after spending one night there, we were ready to change. The room was clean and only minutes from restaurants and downtown, however I do not believe I have ever slept on another mattress quite so uncomfortable. It was VERY firm as another poster said. My back still hurts.

We were scheduled to stay three nights. Since we pre-paid, we could not get a refund but decided to leave a day early anyway even though we were not reimbursed. I did tell the front desk clerk about the uncomfortable bed and received a limited response.

The city is charming and it seemed like there were a few places to choose from.

Love staying here! Well-appointed, quiet rooms; indoor pool & hot tub; good breakfast; kind & helpful staff. This hotel is not close to downtown sights, shopping, and restaurants, so that may deter some, however, it was perfect for me - close to my Durango family.

I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again. We usually stay at 4 Star hotels and I was not looking forward to staying here but the hotel room was excellent and the staff was very professional. Breakfast was average at best, but it was included in the price of the room. The pool is located in the center of the parking lot in a clear dome. For the price paid the value was very good. Only two miles from downtown - 5 minutes drive. A nice river walk is close by.

I brought 21 middle schoolers from the Navajo Reservation to Durango to tour Ft. Lewis College. Some had never stayed at a motel before. They loved the pool! The staff complimented them on their behavior. I compliment the staff on making them feel welcome.

Melissa at the front desk had cookies for me, warm from the oven! My reservation was set and the lobby was much cleaner than the other best western (inn and suites was run down). Melissa helped me fix the doubles bed into a king (VERY NICE). Clean room, Clean sheets, cool pool and hot tub that is actually usable, and fresh fruit infused water at the front desk. loving this place so far
