Booked 3 nights, comfy beds, kind of small but very clean room. Covered pool and hot tub were open pool was quite chilly hot tub felt great! Good location. Breakfast selection is minimal basic continental choices. Not our 1st time to stay here and won't be the last.

Good price, kind of a standard good quality motel room with two queens, a frig and microwave in a good location on the main street where we could easily catch to free city trolley to get right downtown...a beautiful covered pool and a nice breakfast...

Room Tip: We were on the main floor...all the room locations are good

This hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful. It is close to several good restaurants. The domed pool is very neat like being outdoors without the noise and cold. We will return to this hotel anytime we are in Durango.

BW Mountain Shadows is definitely not the highest or lowest on my list of sleeping establishments...

We had three rooms, the heat didn't work in two of the three units. The front-desk response was to give a space-heater -- guess it helps, but the heaters should have been working regardless...

Breakfast was pretty much non-existent, we took the kids to the McDonald's instead, as a simple slice of toast wasn't going to do it for them. The front-desk staff overnight was far more helpful than the morning staff at check-out who were more concerned with talking about their parting the previous night than assisting us...

Price was relative to the quality of the room -- so I can't complain a lot. There is an outdoor, covered/heated pool, though we didn't use it. The view is spectacular from the hotel as well as up and down the street.

Would probably look at a 3-Star hotel on our next Durango stay, but in a pinch, this one wouldn't be the end of the world.

Room Tip: Stick to the first floor -- less walking and quicker vehicle access

My husband and I stayed a week at the Best Western Mountain Shadows in Durango. The inn is an old motel but has been updated with a nice modern bath and microwave and frig. It is clean, and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. One possible drawback is that the wifi is pretty slow, although we have 4G , so it was not a problem for us. However if one were relying on the wifi for Internet service, it could be frustrating. Overall, the room is a good value for the money.

(+) Free breakfast with free drinks 24 hrs (juice, tea, coffee) in the eating area, free parking, and internet
(+) Friendly staff
(+) Great amenities : microwave, coffee maker, fridge
(+) Old but it's a clean room, we got king bed + sofa bed, nice beds.
(+) Got a good deal price

(-) The internet is super slow

We didn't get a chance to try the pool so can't review it.
