On the quieter side of town. Next to some Serious BBQ. Close to supermarket and walgreens. Nice pool and jacuzzi. Good access to Purgatory being on the north side of town. Good breakfast. Coffee available when we arrived from Durango Coffee Company. Cant wait to return.

We planned just to get away for the weekend. We had checked in in the evening and I must say the rooms were really nice but the service that we received from Dustin that evening was the BEST service I've gotten and seen from any hotel we've stayed at period. He was very friendly, helpful, and had an awesome attitude....

Rooms have been remodeled and we're really nice. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Only complaint is breakfast area is small and they ran out of breakfast stuff and staff couldn't keep up with the rush.

I highly recommend this hotel. Indoor hot tub and pool. Good breakfast and friendly staff stayed 3 nights and plan on using them again. For the price it would be hard to beat this hotel. Trust me I'm picky

This is a nice, inexpensive option to staying downtown. Room is clean and upgraded. Breakfast was very good and the pool and hot tub area look nice, though I won't have time to use them. Will stay again

The rooms were clean properly priced spacious but the best thing about the hotel were the people that worked there. They were informative they knew about places to go and things to do. We stayed during Thanksgiving and they helped us by showing us what restaurants would be open on that day. They offered up the information we didn't even...

The receptionist did a really good job of letting us know of the best places to eat and some of the points of interest. We were also able to enjoy some fresh cookies in the afternoon and the breakfast was really good. Don't know where they got the green chili sauce for the eggs but I would love to have...

We enjoyed this motel. The room was large, with a very comfortable bed. We really liked that the bathroom had two sinks. Good location--minutes from downtown. The breakfast was enjoyable (eggs, bacon, salsa), although the breakfast room was very cramped. Nice indoor pool with a pretty view of the mountains through the clear roof.

Everything was as expected. I stayed at several Best Westerns while I was the State of Utah's Communication Specialist III. This hotel was just as expected by being clean, comfortable, and had a friendly staff. It is at about the opposite end of town from the Silverton Train Depot, but it is a small town. It is also very close...
