4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was fairly ordinary, but comfortable. Check-in was quick and easy. The breakfast provided was very good. This motel is about two blocks from the 7-mile trail along the Animas River, which is easy walking and a very pretty walk. The motel is about two miles from downtown Durango, but that's not a problem if you have a car.... More

Stayed here for one night (July 4). The staff were very friendly (after figuring out a mix-up with my reservation) and offered advice on things to do. We trekked (by foot) to downtown Durango, not a quick walk (close to 3 miles) but not a really difficult walk either. Our room seemed to have been recently updated and was very... More

No real complaints here, room was on the smaller side I think largely due to the age of the building, and this was evident in the noisier than average A/cond. But everything was clean and presentable, and the proprietor was very efficient and helpful despite it being V busy.

Upon driving into the parking lot, you think uh-oh this place ain't gonna cut it. It looks older and nothing special. However, the check in staff was very friendly and professional. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. They have flat screen tv, microwave, and mini fridge. No complaints.

We came to Durango for the 4th of July and spent 4 nights here as part of a 10-day vacation to Colorado. The beds were comfortable and the rooms, quiet. Breakfast had a variety of options. Coffee was better than that of two other places at which we stayed. Desk and cleaning staff were professional and courteous. Parking spaces are... More

Hotel is located north of town and feels more residential. It is clean, friendly, and one of the best Durango has to offer. It is located within walking distance to many natural attractions, and only a short drive to the railroad and downtown. The pool is among the best. The facilities will make your trip restful and enjoyable.

This is a older motel with average appearance and decor. The room was ok, and the bed/pillows were good. My only critizism, is the pricing. I understand the area is dictating price to some degree but for the age of the property it seems this motel operator is not missing out on making a buck.

The front desk staff was wonderful at giving recommendations for local restaurants that the whole family would love. The pool was beautiful and easily accessible. The recent remodel has put a fresh face on an older hotel. We would come again!
