This hotel located in the heart of downtown Durango is a unique place to stay. It is furnished with antiques and is clean and well-maintained. It is, however, not luxurious, and does not have some of the amenities of other hotels at this price point. We stayed in a king classic room on the 3rd floor and found the bed in our room to be quite bouncy and bumpy. The bathroom is small but functional as you might expect in a hotel of this age. Our room looked directly out to the Durango/Silverton train and we enjoyed watching it go by. We read some reviews on the breakfast that were not good, but we were pleasantly surprised and thought it was great. They had scrambled eggs, as well as homemade banana bread which was delicious, homemade posole and scones which you would not find at a chain hotel. It was all very good. We went to the Diamond Belle Saloon for happy hour on the night we arrived and ended up staying for the $5 hamburgers. Great deal and very good!
Little known fact: They have a Jacuzzi. It is private -- schedule a time with the front desk and they will give you the key at your scheduled time. A great way to end the day!
