Reviewed 16 January 2012

Great basic motel style place, clean rooms, comfortable bed, great shower pressure. Friendly helpful staff. We would stay there again next time we pass thru the area. It was nice to walk down the street to the Serious Texas Bar B Que restaurant.

Room Tip: The end rooms are close to the road, so if noise bothers you ask for a room away from the road.

Definitely nothing fancy but it was clean and well worth the price. I'm pretty picky and I would stay here again.

The beds are very comfortable and the showers have good water pressure with tall shower heads. The rooms have been updated in the past couple years. The complimentary breakfast is good including yogurt, make yourself waffles, hard boiled eggs.... assorted teas. The swimming pool and hot tub is conveniently located with lots of personality (clear bubble dome) and the hot tub is great for after skiing. The hotel is located close to the Ski Barn(most reasonable ski rentals) and great restaurants (Zia's....). Along the complimentary trolley line that takes you all over Durango! A beautiful 20 minute drive from Purgatory ski area!

Room Tip: Book 14days in advanced for amazing pricing!

Great staff and clean rooms. Stayed 4 nights with no problems and the breakfast was good. I would use this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: 2nd floor for the view of the mountains

It's far from downtown where the hotels are charging the same price. The pool and hot tub are awesome, IF it's open. The housekeeping is rude, and quite condescending if you're unlucky enough to spark up a conv'. This hotel seems to nickel and dime you for anything they can find and they masquerade "free" internet as if it's some big deal, and a free breakfast that sucks. The bubble dome over the pool is no longer worthy of my money, I'll never stay here again.

Room Tip: The only thing that makes this motel worth anything is the pool. Ask BEFORE you pay for a room if th...

Thank you for taking the time a write a review. I am sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations during your recent stay. Our rates are competitive while still remaining below comparable properties located in the downtown area. We feel you can experience all Durango has to offer within 5 minutes without the hustle and bustle of downtown.
We do have a great pool that our guests enjoy. Our pool is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. We do close our pool at night to respect other guests. Most of our amenities at our property are free. The only fees you may have run into are our non-smoking policy or a pet policy, both which are stated in writing and verbally at the time of check-in. Thank you.
