I can find two positives to say about the Caboose Motel: it's cheap and it's clean. After that, it's all downhill. The rooms are small, and as other reviewers have noted, the mattresses are like sleeping on a plywood board. No one is ever in the closed office - you have to call to get them. Reservations are a mystery to them. For stays over a night, there is no service, which means no made beds, no fresh towels, no trash emptied. That's all the guest's responsibility. Here's the worst part - the walls are paper thin. You can clearly hear every conversation, cough, etc. from the rooms next door. It's like you're sharing a room with strangers. There are so many other reasonably priced hotels and motels nearby, there's no reason to ever stay here.

Day 6 of my 2 week independent hotel/motel trip. - I was a little concerned when I saw that the front lobby was closed due to Covid, and you had to check in through the side window. But that was alleviated when I went into the room. Clean, spacious room while still keeping all the charm of an independent one story motel where you park in front of your room. Wood paneled inside, bathroom up to date, looks to be somewhat recently remodeled. Everything was just what I wish was expected from every place. Carpeting was clean, internet signal was good.

Motel did not have our reservation that was made through our travel site when we arrived according to a lady at the hotel. We called earlier in the day to confirm our reservation with a man at the hotel and everything was fine according to him (owner/manager). Nevertheless when we arrived they had given our room away and said they had no record of a reservation even after we previously confirmed. They showed no remorse and said that this was not uncommon and that we should have booked directly with them. Poor customer service and very bad connections with travel agents evidently. Don’t take chances, go elsewhere.

Durango, like so many tourist places, is stupidly high priced. When I found the Caboose Motel, the price was reasonable and I didn't expect it to have the piazzas as other hotels. It was clean, small, no phone (everyone has cell phones now anyway), wifi a bit spotty but not a big deal, but the one thing I didn't expect was no Kleenex. I forgot to let them know that the coffee pot was clogged and water sat in the cup where you put the coffee. Oh well, it's not the Ritz, but to see friends for 1 night I wasn't going to pay $200+. They were very nice about getting my husband 2 extra pillows. The bed looked very clean and nice but I've never had to climb up so high to get in. There was a microwave and refrigerator and small table with hard-backed chairs. If all you need is a reasonably price bed for a night, go for it.

We stayed here on a one night stop over during a long western trip. We arrived late and checked in fine. When we opened the door to the room, is was rustic but that was fine with us. One of the two beds made it difficult to get to the restroom, but again, not that big of a problem. What was the problem was that when we went to bed (two of us, each with our own bed), I at once noticed a problem when I got into bed. It was the hardest mattress I have ever experienced and I generally like a harder mattress. It honestly felt as if I was laying on a bed of marble or granite. I asked my friend who was in the other bed how it was, and it was rock hard as well. I tend to roll around during the night, and every time I did, I experienced pain from the mattress. I wanted this place to be cozy and comfortable. Cozy, sure. Comfortable - not even close.
