Great stay at the condo hotel. The entry lobby area was nice and entirely what we expected. The decor was a somewhat dated but still very neat and clean, just needed a little updating. My husband found this condo among many owned by private parties and leased when not needed by the owner. This is my first review of a privately owned condo. These condos vary so widely that you never really know what you're going to get without looking. Many have photos and this is definitely a priority to see what you will get. This was a one bedroom and the bed was perfect. I really look at the baths to get a good idea of the care and attention the owner has for the property. If the bath is in poor repair, with loose tiles, unappealing grout, slow draining tubs and lack of attention to updates, I'm usually out within minutes. This is an easy quick check and I know instantly - otherwise I know I will not enjoy the stay. This place was an A+ on every category. The only glitch is you have to drive into Durango to dine, if cooking is not your idea of a vacation. So, do a little shopping for those breakfast needs early in the morning and snacks at night and you won't be disappointed.
Here, we were delighted with the amenities of this condo. The condo was updated with granite, very nice furnishings in the living and bedroom. We had a king bed taking the majority of the space in the bedroom. However, when staying in Durango there is so much to see and do, the size of the bedroom is not a concern. The kitchen, dining and living rooms were a great size with doors to the deck from the bedroom and living room. The room had a flat screen TV but we never watched it. As with most condos, there is an owner's closet for those items the owner doesn't share. However, this was so well-appointed with great detail, the owner's closet most assuredly had the skies, and everything needed for the owner to enjoy the winter wonderland offered here!
Also, I couldn't believe the activities for kids. I feel I had a disadvantaged upbringing! This entire area was magical for kids. Even with kids nearby, it was quiet at night because the little darlings are fast asleep after all their activities during the day. These condos don't offer room service and the gift shops found in hotels.
This trip was part of a great adventure from Santa Fe to Durango to see Mesa Verde and the Anasazi ruins, Monument Valley in Arizona and back through Taos and the Enchanted Circle. My only disappointment was that we didn't stay in Durango longer, especially in this condo. With temperatures in the 80s, Durango is fabulous in the summer. Monument Valley may reach temperatures to 105 and higher in the summer months. Planning is a must, but well worth it. I'm already planning our next trip!
