“...Used to be a Holiday Inn... same great service...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

Having stayed here numerous times when it was a Holiday Inn, I was a bit skeptical... but no need to be. Asked for an early check-in - easily accomodated - the room was right across from the indoor pool and spa - the landscaping was very well done. Grass was mowed - bushes trimmed - very nice atmosphere.

The rooms were the same - very nice - very clean - lots of soft pillows. Beds were soft - all was well - and they take pets for a nominal charge of $10....

The only thing is no free breakfast - they do provide coffee and oatmeal though. The reason for that is there's an Applebee's next door that provides room service. I don't usually order room service, but this time I thought I'd try - the food was warm - the service from Applebee's was quick and on time. They do charge to your room, which is nice if you want it.

This hotel is close to the downtown area, and not as expensive as the historic hotels on Main Ave - It's a great choice .....

I stayed at the Downtown Inn because I wanted to be within walking distance of the downtown area. I thought the room was in very good condition and was also very clean. I also thought the rate was reasonable so I will be staying here again when I return to Durango.

Pros: room was clean, location is fine, heater worked
Cons: REALLY hard beds; door opens to the outside (so you freeze); pool/spa/workout room is in another part of the MOTEL complex (so you have to walk out in the weather to get to them); Old TV with poor channel selection (and I mean poor); VERY noisy; Watch out for soap dish holders in the shower as one of them is near head level (so you will bang your head on it and get a big KNOT, one of the stupidest things I've ever seen);
