“Comfortable and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Getting an affordable place to stay in Durango is always a challenge. This is a Mom and Pop American owned and managed motel centrally located and very comfortable. Biker friendly the staff goes the extra mile to ensure a great stay. No breakfast but close to several good restaurants. Will stay here again

Room Tip: Rooms along the back are best for bike parking. Although we had a side room the manager offered us...

We stayed two nights during the 4th of July weekend and loved the place. The room was clean and the bed comfy. It's just north of historic downtown but convenient to the train station and restaurants. It is older,but it's charming and beats the chain hotels by miles in character. The front desk person was helpful and friendly. If you want homemade comfort, this is the place to go!

Room Tip: rooms away from the road are a bit quieter, but the noise level on the street is really not that not...

Seems appropriate that the top rated lodging in Durango is the huge megaplex plastic and safe chain lodge (ugly, ugly roadside blight). This what most of the people want. They are really missing out on boutique motels, a growing trend. Its the lodging back-lash to the chains, just like in restaurants. But in our case, these old motor lodges are being rescued and saved. The neon signs themselves are worth preserving. Be a sport and take a break from your frequent flyer cards and try one. Yes, it could be hit and miss, because these places are only as good as the owners. In the Caboose's case, it was worth it. Clean and nice and very personable. I don't agree with the owner's decorating, but I'll give her that be it is her! We had a fine time staying there for 2 nights.

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was very friendly. It is a way from downtown, but that was fine with us. We would stay here again and would recommend this hotel if you like simple, clean rooms.

the rooms are small, but very well equipped, this is an old motel, but remodeled ok! the location is a little far from town, the bed was hard and the pillows were like rocks, for the money its not a great value! they're very proud of their rooms! they will only give you a decent rate which is still high if they're not full!

We booked 3 rooms and each room was uniquely decorated! The owner was very nice and helpful to direct us to great local hangouts! The rooms were clean and beds comfortable! Great location - no pool for kids but we did not require one. Highly recommend !!!

We were on the road with two dogs. The Caboose staff was very friendly and made no issue about our dogs. The room was adorable, and clean. New paint and decor and a nice tv. The half kitchen set up was super helpful.

Cons: the location was a little away from downtown, if that's where you want to eat.
