At check-in I was told a mistake had been made about the rate and the clerk charged the higher amount. However, when I spoke to the manager in the morning she immediately credited by account with no argument. The room was clean, but had a slightly musty odor and we felt like we were in a basement room. Window was below street level. We later discovered a very wet spot near wall on carpet and told a maintenance person. Later, that day,when we came back to our room there was a large fan on the floor and even when we again returned about 10:00 PM the fan was still roaring away. Floor was still damp! We noticed another fan in the hallway so we disconnected ours and put it out also. The location was fabulous and the price was reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor or on the parking lot side of the building.

This is a great location that makes it easy to walk downtown when you do not have a car. The donuts they have in the AM were excellent.
When we were there it was rather warm and higher than normal humidity. The AC could not cope. They did send a fan, but it was still uncomfortable. Our window opened on the street, so even when it cooled off at night there was street noise that made a sound sleep difficult. We had reservations to return at the end of our trip, but cancelled for someplace with some AC.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the main street.

When we came in, the AC wasn't working. I let the staff know, who made a "note" about it. The second day when we arrived back in the room, it still wasn't fixed.

To their credit, they gave us a fan and knocked 20% off the price. That being said, I wasn't WOWed at all.

The bed is also super close to the bathroom door, hard to maneuver around.The room had a funky smell. My daughter had to spray some Bath and Body Works stuff around the room to get rid of it.

No bathtub, only a shower- good to know if you have small kids that need a bathtub.

Would not recommend this place.

The hotel was fine and the balcony was nice. It was however the perfect spot to stay if you are going on the Durango Silverton train as it is right by the station.
The pool and hot tub were also a bonus.
All in all a nice stay.

Me and my family really liked this hotel. We stayed here about a month ago and the location was fantastic and was close to all the attractions in the town. The rooms were also very clean and big. The staff were really nice too. Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay here.

This place stunk so bad that we couldn't stay. Even the hallway leading to the room wreaked! The double queen room was dark and damp and smelled awful. We took the key back and said no thanks. The location was close to downtown but that's all I can say nice about it
