We chose this hotel because it was about 10 miles from Durango Airport and also because it was a casino. The hotel has been open for about 5 years. The staff at the hotel were very nice. The rooms were clean, modern and quiet. There's a mexican restaurant, cafe, steak house and a place to pick up quick snacks (like pastries....) inside the casino/hotel. The casino is small, but it's easy to find people unlike those huge casino's in Vegas. There is a gas station about a mile from the casino. We tried bingo, but it was kind of expensive at $53 if you include the electronic machine. Be sure to sign up for the "Bear Card" to get a few discounts at their hotel.
