First off this is not the easiest hotel to find, then when we walked in we one heard three people saying when they went into their rooms they were already occupied. Not a good first impression. For the price we paid for three nights, it was definitely not worth it. The room was in serious need of updating. Did not...

We stayed one night here whilst on our road trip , the room was fine if a little dated. Most of the rooms were accessed from the main atrium which included the pool so there was a chlorine odour floating around . Breakfast was thrown in for us , it was basic but fine . Staff were very friendly ....

This is not an upscale hotel but it is fun and clean. My room had everything anyone could possibly need including ironing, microwave, refrigerator, coffee/tea maker, hairdryer, comp newspaper, in-room safe, free wifi. It is close to everything and less than a 5 min. walk to the Silverton & Durango train station. They don't have a restaurant for dinner, but...

This is a great place to stay in Durango as it is quiet and has balconies to let in the fresh air. Our room had a beautiful view of the mountains We also had a jacuzzi in the bathroom which was nice. We had breakfast free in the hotel and two drinks per day.

The staff at this hotel provide a stellar experience, although the breakfast and the workout facility are lacking, the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is a great location as well. It is close to downtown and many nice restaurants.

We stay with this hotel each time we come through town, and while the rooms are clean and the breakfast selection is good,my favorite thing about this place is the wonderful staff. They are very personable and makeour stay seem like we are visiting family.

This is a very nice hotel. Just off the main area of Durango. Walking distance of the down town. Many nice restaurants in the area. They have a great happy hour with free drinks and snacks. Nice pool and great rooms.

Our tour company booked our group here and the tour director warned us that the hotel is dated and scheduled for a winter renovation. Small entry and the center where there should be a common area is a swimming pool and hot tub so there is no common area to wait for our tours or breakfast and there's a strong...
