We had a 2 night stop at this hotel in December - we had started in San Diego and were looping our way through Monument Valley, Arches, Canyonlands via Moab, Ouray and this was our next stopping point whilst making our way back to San Diego.
We had checked out the hotel on-line and on Trip Advisor and we liked the look of it's old world charm. We managed to get a room for a couple of nights and although one of their smaller rooms it was quite adequate (a little re-arrangement of a table and chairs to fit in our large suitcases). The room was clean, comfortable, quaint and characterful. The bed was very comfy and we slept very well. The complimentary breakfast was quite good with plenty of options to fill you up and keep you going for a few hours.
The location in Durango was excellent with an easy walk to all shops, bars and restaurants and the famous railway. We thought Durango was a great place and it would have been nice to be able to stay a bit longer and had it been a few degrees warmer - it went very cold while we were there and we decided to leave for Prescott, Arizona before the snow came.
The staff we came into contact with were very pleasant and helpful. A really nice place to stop when in Durango and a lovely change from the usual chain hotels.
