“Everything you want and more!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Stayed here and Larry was great to us. We had motorcycle trouble and limped back to Durango for repairs. Didn't have a room and we needed 3 and Larry came through for us. Perfect spot and others have said, he had the motorcycle cleaning area all set up, which worked great. Also, the spot in the middle to visit was so nice and peaceful. Others that stayed there at the same time had the same friendly, relaxed way about them. Larry sets the tone and does everything to make it a great stay. This will now be our go-to spot in Durango. On the north side of town, just out enough to be away from the traffic, but close enough in to be near what you need.

I must confess, I was attracted to the motel because of the fun (and now politically incorrect) neon sign. I was not disappointed. The facilities maintained the feel of the motor courts I visited as a child in the 1950s. The room was clean and comfortable and the landscaping was lovely--especially the purple clematis vines that graced several trellises on the property. The room rate was great and the property conveniently near the Durango-Silverton Train Depot, the train being our primary reason for returning to Durango.

We stayed here 3 nights, clean rooms, amazing shower! Very friendly owners! They keep the place very neat and clean. They had soap, towels and buckets to wash your motorcycle. They had a sitting area in the middle of the motel under a shade tree. Very laid-back atmosphere. Free transit stops right in front of the motel that will take you downtown. Great stay! And they sell Peace Tea!!

I have stayed at this establishment several times, since first finding it in 2005. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and as long time residents of Durango have the connections to get deals and arrange activities to ensure your trip is terrific. The rooms were well maintained and always clean and the location close to all of Durango, rafting the Animas, several lakes, the million dollar highway, the durango silverton railroad, many dining options and breweries and other attractions ensure you'll find plenty to do!

I only stayed one night but the staff were so accommodating. Maureen allowed us to check in late at night and even saved us from missing our flight in the morning when my friend left his phone in the locked room. She sent someone to help right away! And the room was great. Fluffy pillows, individual couches and just fabulous decor. It's not like one of those impersonal modern places to stay. This is family-owned and sweet...definitely a best-kept secret as advertised.

We stay here several times a year and just love coming back. The rooms are always clean, the beds are always comfortable. The owners and management are so accommodating and friendly, if you need something all you have to do is ask. They go above and beyond every time. It's a great location only a mile and a half to the train. Thanks again SIESTA for a wonderful stay you sure know how to run a business, after 39 years you know what your doing! See you again soon!

Room Tip: Such a great motel!! "All the rooms are great"

DO NOT STAY AT THE SIESTA MOTEL! Made reservations for a one-month stay at the SM, while waiting to move into my new house. Given previous reviews and the motel's website, it looked like a good choice. NOT!!! My room was DARK, DANK, SMELLY, AND NOISY (the motel is right off of the 550). Because of the cheap price, I decided I could brave the poor quality for a month. Had to leave town on a family emergency for a week, and the management knew I was away. When I returned, groceries I had purchased had been cleaned out of my mini-frig and personal items were missing from the closet. I shared my concerns with the management and was met with a DISRESPECTFUL, RUDE, and INSULTING response. I was even accused of lying. INCREDIBLE! The Siesta Motel does not care about its guests or their guests' property. It is FAR FROM A FRIENDLY FAMILY ESTABLISHMENT. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY ITS WEBSITE!
