“Good, quiet place to stay the night ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Stayed here two nights while visiting Durango on a family vacation. Room was clean and good sized. Had both a mini fridge and a microwave. Beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. Bathroom was a little small but the shower was nice. The complimentary WiFi worked well for us. Air conditioner was nice and cool. I was a little worried about there being enough parking at first, but we were always able to park right by our room even when we pulled in later at night so my concern was unfounded. Room was very quiet. Staff was friendly. There's a covered pool which we didn't utilize but saw several families enjoying. They offer free breakfast which included eggs, bacon, waffles and muffins. You're only about 10 minutes or so away from the train station if you are planning on riding the Durango/Silverton train. Would definitely stay here again.

This was our second visit to Durango for a short family vacation. We came to ride the train and to tour Mesa Verde, both of which were wonderful excursions! Durango is a lovely recreation town. We recommend it and will make the trip again in the future. Our visit was enhanced by our comfortable room at the Best Western and the clean, covered pool. The service and breakfast bar could both have been better though. The overall experience was acceptable for a moderate-priced family stay.

The pool was great. Although it is not connected to the hotel, the depth is 9ft, which is great for older teens. The hot tub was excellent. The breakfast was fresh and had good variety. The beds were comfortable and there were more towels than most hotels. The internet connection was not consistently stable, which was irritating.

This is the perfect family hotel where we stayed for a family reunion. The rooms were clean and pleasantly appointed, they were large and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was included, there is a pool. The towels were plentiful and very soft and fluffy. The staff was helpful. All for a mid-range price - this was an excellent value. In addition, the hotel has a pool, is located on the trolley line and is across from a grocery store. If you have a large group and need a number of rooms or have a family - this is an excellent hotel.

Not much to look at from the outside but room was good size and very comfortable, had fridge and microwave and what seemed to be recently upgraded bathroom. Staff were super friendly and helpful offering coffee and cookies on arrival. Parking is a little tight but manageable. Breakfast was great, eggs and bacon as well as waffles with berries, whipped cream and warm syrup :) I judge a chain hotel on quality of breakfast, this one passed with flying colors. Recommendation for Texas BBQ nearby was good choice, cheap and tasty.

We stayed here on our way back from the Grand Canyon/Las Vegas. Room was clean and everything worked. Front desk staff was very helpful as we got in late at night. Early breakfast was perfect for the kids before we left early the next morning. Wished we would have had more time to see the town of Durango.

Room was clean and a good size. Parking is limited with very tight spaces, but parking seems to be a challenge everywhere in Durango. It is best to ride the trolley when possible.
The motel staff was awesome. Very helpful, from providing a great breakfast to baking warm cookies in the evening, they did everything to make our stay pleasant.
We would certainly stay here again.
