We booked our room last-minute and got quite a small one with an antique-sized bed which didn't quite accommodate my 6'3" husband. The room was very charming, though, with old fixtures and tiles in the bathroom, antique wallpaper and furniture. We both got a strange vibe from the place and didn't sleep very well - maybe those ghost stories are true - but it was fun to stay there anyway. There were a few big groups there, which I find annoying, being an individual traveler myself, and of course it's a huge tourist attraction, so there's not much peace and quiet in any case. Downtown Durango is cute and quaint, though, and this is a great location as a base for exploring the area on foot.
