    The location was spot on, price was reasonable, and the hotel was gorgeous! Staff was professional and really friendly. My room was clean and charming, and the antique elevator was really cool. Support this wonderful local business!!

    Room was comfortable. Staff was very nice. Had a little too much fun in Durango so I didn't want to drive home 2.5hrs at night so stayed and left early in the AM. A great place to stay, I will definitely stay here again.
