We stayed here for a single night in October as we had missed our flight home and had to reschedule for the next day. (It might be a small place, but don’t underestimate how long it takes to drive to the airport!!).
The reception staff were welcoming, friendly and professional. We were placed in a room at the back of the property that overlooked the carpark, but we were happy with this selection – as we didn’t want a room in the inner circle of the property that opened into the courtyard surrounding the pool.
The Hotel is spacious and actually looks like a hotel not a motel (and as a previous reviewer has mentioned – it does resemble a ski lodge), it is conveniently located a short walk away from the Durango-Silverton train station and provides a perfect base for wandering around the towns centre.
The breakfast was an open buffet with a great selection of hot and continental options and the room price also included two free drinks at the bar in the afternoon, which is a great way to get everyone in the bar area, chatting and making friends.
Having spent the week (prior to missing our flight) at another Best Western down the road (for roughly the same price) we couldn’t believe the difference in the service, professionalism and value for money between the two establishments.
If we return to Durango, we will definitely stay here again.
