This is a great place to stay in Durango. Its on the North end of town, minutes away from the Historic center of town. You can take the public trolly from the stop just outside the door. Saved us on finding parking downtown on a busy evening. Its only a 25 minute drive to the ski area. The rooms were very clean for being an older Hampton Inn, and the staff was really friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is the usual Hamton offerings, but the staff was really friendly and made the breakfast experience really fun and informative. I've stayed in other hotels in Durango and find the Hamton to be the best, one of the cleanest and compaired to the costs per night at other hotels, its a great value for the services and the included breakfast. We plan on coming back this winter to go skiing and will stay at the Hampton because of its close location to downtown and the easy drive to the ski area.
