We enjoyed our stay at this Best Western. We decided to stay here because it was located very near the train depot for the Durango Silverton Train. We checked in late one afternoon and was given directions to several restaurants within walking distance - train depot is also within walking distance. The staff was very friendly, rooms were nice and clean, beds very comfortable. The breakfast was very nice with a lot of choices. The indoor pool are was clean and centrally located.

Room Tip: If you want to park close to your room - ask for a room on the side facing the highway instead of th...

Thank you so much for the great review. We appreciate the positive feedback-it means so much to all of us here. We do have a great hotel with a great staff. Durango is a great town to walk around in and we have such a convenient location for all that there is to do in the downtown area. Again, thank you and have a great Thanksgiving holiday.

We enjoyed staying at this Best Western. The staff were all friendly, the room was very clean, bed very, very comfortable and breakfast had a nice variety. We were surprised, and enjoyed, the two free drinks that evening. great walking distance to downtown Durango.

We were there for 4 nights and regardless of who was at the front desk they were always helpful and pleasant. The hotel is in historic downtown and easy walking distance to many restaurants and activities. The room was a typical hotel room, nothing extra special, but it was always quiet. About half of the rooms had outside entry, but there are some indoors around the pool area. The best thing of this hotel was the breakfast. It was over and above expectations and anyone-including picky eaters-could find something they like. In the evenings they also had 2 complementary drinks and chips for "paying" guests which was a nice treat. The kids could play in the pool while we relaxed on the side. The one downfall was the hot tub. While the water temperature was hot, the jets were not working. Will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

Thank you so much for the great review. I am so sorry about the hot tub. It appears that one of the jets has sprung a leak and we are in the process of trying find exactly where the leak is so that we can repair it and get the jets running again. We are working on it and hopefully will have it fixed soon. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and are pleased that you enjoyed the breakfast. We do try and address dietary needs and provide enough of a variety to offer many options for our guests. We appreciate the positive feedback and hope that you had a great time in Durango.

We stayed here a couple of days before going on a hunt and one night after. Great location - close enough to walk downtown to shops. Bed was comfy, plenty of pillows and entire room (bath included) was clean. Breakfast was out-of-this world good - even strawberries and whipped cream to put on the waffles ! They also had complimentary drinks each evening. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I'm seriously only staying at Best Westerns from now on !

The front desk checked us in so quickly. They also accommodated my request to be on the quiet side of the hotel. The continental breakfast was superior to many hotel breakfasts. You could make your own breakfast burrito, waffles, biscuits and gravy. They also had the other stuff like donuts, cereal, yogurt, etc. It was very quiet and we appreciated the happy hour after a long day.

What an excellent location! Leave your car in the parking lot and you can walk to all the locations! Steamworks Brewery, Ken & Sues, Henry Strater Theater, Jean Pierre Bakery. Every place on Main Street is an easy walk, even at midnight! Loved the free breakfast and the biscuits & gravy were great! The 2 free drinks in the evening weren't bad either!. The train station is just a block away. This is one of the few places I have stayed with an indoor pool that was not humid! Great value!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. We greatly appreciate the input and the positive feedback. We do have a great location and a great property. The pool area is a wonderful asset and I am so happy that you enjoyed it. Please come back and stay with us again soon. The winter rates are lower and the downtown area is usually not as busy. Have a great Thanksgiving and again thank you very much for the review.

This was a delightful stay, close to Durango, the railway station, and highways to other attractions. The staff was warm and courteous. The rooms comfortable and clean. All in all, we felt at home. Breakfast and staff serving was outstanding. Great job!
