“worked fine for us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

lodging (and food) in durango is all overpriced, so you need to look at everything as a comparison--and in comparison to other hotels/motels in durango, this little place is a very good deal--family owned, meaning they want you to enjoy your stay, and to return, as opposed to the chains/box hotels, whose minimum wage employees don't care--if you are in to fancy, this might not be the place for you--I must admit that dogs and smoke in the lobby worried me (wife's allergies) but the room smelled very fresh and was squeaky clean--fridge, microwave, coffee maker, good beds, and plenty of hot water--terri was very pleasant and helpful--we were traveling with 3 grandkids, and she made sure we had plenty of extra towels, etc.--will stay there in the future

We stayed here for one night in June and can't understand why this place gets such top reviews. Our first impression was not good. Yes, the owner was friendly and helpful, but the office was dark and dingy and smelled of smoke. Our room had just been cleaned, but the fridge was still full of the previous guest's food, which indicates that the cleaning job wasn't very thorough. All the fixtures were ancient although clean (we think) and in working condition. Overall, the motel seems like it's patched together and on its last legs with no effort put into updates. An average stay but overpriced for what you get.

We've stayed here in 2013 when riding the train to Silverton and decided to stay again this weekend.
This is a small property and privately owned and operated by nice friendly and helpful people.

The rooms are nice, clean and roomy with a western themed decor.

Our room was right by the highway so a bit noisy, but not too bad with the A/C running and keeping us cool.
No phones in the room which is a nice thing for vacationing!
This is a short drive north of downtown and near restaurants, grocery stores, and of course the TRAIN!
If you want a change from the big chain hotels, this is a nice place and fun!

Room Tip: You might be best selecting a room away from the main highway that goes by. It's not that bad...

This is an older motel that is family owned and operated. The staff and owners were very accommodating and friendly. We got here a night early and stayed in another room, other than our reservation. Good comfortable bed, firm but plush. The next morning they did up the room we had reserved first and we were able to switch seamlessly. The beds are never older than 3 yrs and are all Serta. The rooms are very clean and for the high season in Durango, the rates are very good.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a kitchenette, all have micro, coffee and refrig.

I just spent 3 days at the Caboose Motel in Durango CO. Everything was perfect for us. Would stay here again if ever in Durango, CO. The motel was just yards from the Durango Trolley which provides a free ride to the downtown. Excellent!

Room Tip: I prefer the type of room that allows me to park at my door...this motel gives you that option.

Liked this place so much we stayed two nights. Used as a base to visit Mesa Verde, Only 1/2 hour away. There is a free trolley that picks up 3xper hour to take you in town to shops and restaurants. Well worth the trip to town. Live music everywhere. Loved Durango and our hotel. The managers were wonderful and helpful.
No frills, no breakfast. Mom and pop place not big box.
