Liked this place so much we stayed two nights. Used as a base to visit Mesa Verde, Only 1/2 hour away. There is a free trolley that picks up 3xper hour to take you in town to shops and restaurants. Well worth the trip to town. Live music everywhere. Loved Durango and our hotel. The managers were wonderful and helpful.
No frills, no breakfast. Mom and pop place not big box.

Truly the charm of Durango :)
Can I just say that...I love a kichten! The room had several eclectic touches that made it more homey. Lovely, friendly and nice owner. We will definitely stay again. B-E-A-utiful!

...great quaint motel! Stayed again, and this time I had the King Room (instead of the 2 queens). The beds were newer and softer than the queens. The room was very nice - stayed here numerous times, and each time they go the extra mile to make sure the guest has everything they need. Terri wasn't there this time, but the owner was just as nice!!

It's much cheaper than the all the hotels/motels in Durango, and you are not at risk when you stay here. No surly characters - the rooms are super clean... It's a great no frills motel!!!

This little place has an old world feel about it. Reasonable place to stay but no amenties such as pool,jacuzzi or even continental breakfast. However price is right and you would be hard put to find a cleaner but semi secluded place to stay. Always go back to here when I am in Durango

Room Tip: all rooms face the highway but no highway noise is forthcoming

We love Durango and decided to stay at the Caboose Motel after seeing it advertised in a travel book. The rooms have a '50s feel to them, with a western flair. We had a room close to the road, yet there was very little road noise. Comfortable and charming.

I have stayed in three different rooms now at The Caboose. All have been amazingly clean. The beds were comfortable. The rooms eclectic but homey. The manager, Terri, is always so polite and helpful. We've met the owner and she seems like a super nice lady too. The ONE AND ONLY complaint I have, I'd love to see bigger TV's in all the rooms. Some do some don't. The only time we are watching TV when there is as we are going to bed, so it's not a deal breaker for us.

I needed a place for one night and didn't want to spend a lot. The caboose is like stepping back in time to the motor lodges of the 60's where you park right outside your door. It isn't a resort and isn't modern, but it is clean and gets the job done. The baths had been remodeled and the bed was very comfortable. There was also a small kitchenette which I did not use. The room had a flat panel tv, 2 tables, a small chest of drawers, and a window A/C. Heat was from a space heater in my particular room although there was a wall unit too. There are a couple of things to be aware of: you pay in advance which is a little different. Also there is no shampoo in the room. The office will provide some in a cup if you need and it wasn't a big deal for me. There is some traffic noise but it didn't bother me. Some people complain the price is too high but it is way less than the chains in town but higher than the low end hotels that look dirty and have sketchy customers. If you are particular and like the chain experience, this may not be the place for you. However if you just want clean, a good bed, and 50 percent cheaper than the chains in town, this is fine. Overall, a good experience and I would stay again.
