Beautifully decorated with victorian furniture and wallpaper and props plus a teddy bear theme - kids will love it. Great location on the main street of the charming and friendly town of Durango. Only problem was the street noise. If you don't want to hear loud disco music and the sound of partyers and street sweepers (at 3am), be sure to ask for a room that faces the back of the hotel. Also a problem with the heat and air in our room which is why we had the window open. I recommend talking to the front desk if you have an air problem. They are super friendly and helpful. the whole town seems incredibly friendly and happy - many of the workers in restaurants and shops go to the local college, Fort Lewis College. The hotel had fabulous scones for the included breakfast and modern television and internet access despite the Victorian decor.
