“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Our room was comfortable and clean, but the beds were a tiny bit too hard for our taste.
The breakfast was great - eggs, bacon, waffles, cereal, toast.
Pool was nice, but the enclosed area was a little loud because of the waterfall.
Hotel was located at the north end of town, not really within walking distance if you wanted to see the downtown area. But there is a grocery store right across the street and restaurants nearby.

Our room was very clean and comfortable. We could hear children running back and forth on the floor above us but, other than that, our stay was quite enjoyable. The bedding felt fresh. The bathroom was clean and the tub/shower looked as if it had been updated. Oh, the hot water took about five minutes to come out of the taps (sink and shower) so you might need patience. Breakfast was crowded but the offerings were decent.

It was very conveniently located for our visit to the Bar D Chuckwagon.

Nice and well maintained motel at comparable price for Durango. Enjoyed the breakfast and headed to the Durango and Silverton Train just 5 minutes away. Also used the laundry room to clean some clothes after a lot of 4 wheeling in the mountains. I would recommend this motel and would stay there again. They did a great job with our special request to have a ground floor room for my elderly mother.

We stayed for two nights while we visited Mesa Verde National Park and the Four Corners. I liked the hotel a lot. The room was spacious with two bedrooms, so my daughter could have her own room. Each bedroom contained a super comfortable queen bed, a large armoire with lots of storage space, and a nice-sized flat screen tv. There was a separate living room with a dining table and a refrigerator and microwave as well. The hot breakfast was really good- scrambled eggs, bacon, a waffle bar, hot and cold cereal, yogurt, juices, and coffee. I thought it was an outstanding breakfast compared to some of the other hotel's free breakfasts. My daughter enjoyed the pool and hot tub, which is under a clear dome, so at least you get some sun. The housekeeping did a fine job. All in all, a great value for the price paid.

A two-night stay so we could ride the D&S train. Pleased with the property; BW's are most often consistent, clean and quiet. Breakfast was a good value and I enjoyed the fresh fruit toppings for the waffles. Lots of others must of had the same idea as the breakfast area was very crowded.
Off-street, safe parking right outside the room, but the lot was a bit tight. And there was quite a crowd of Harley Riders in town at this hotel these nights. BW has a discount program through Harley Davidson. They were running up the Million Dollar Highway the next day. With one noticeable objection, who revved his engine and cranked his music quite late, they were all pleasure to share the lot with.
The hot breakfast the morning of the train ride, worked well for us despite the crowded eating area and it was truly a delight to come back after the train trip and have the night's accommodations taken care of.
After dinner the second evening, we enjoyed the Animas River Walk downtown.
I would recommend this hotel.

We selected and stayed at this motel based on earlier traveler TA reviews, but were underwhelmed. There isn't any question the front desk staff is friendly and accommodating, but almost excessively when chatting with a guest while other guests are queued to check in. Our room was quiet and clean, but I had to move the desk table in order to close the drapes so passers by couldn't see in. Also, there wasn't a comfortable sitting chair, only a desk chair. Lastly, the bedside table lamps weren't suitable for bed time book reading and parking spaces are narrow. The location away from downtown was a plus. Breakfast is above average and coffee is excellent.

This is a great value for Durango. Clean rooms, emasculate hot tub and pool. Cross Main street on 32nd Street to pick up riverwalk trail to downtown (1.8 miles). Can hike 8 miles of mountain trails right behind hotel, so don't have to move car. Walk to Zia's Mexican or to an awesome pizza just a couple blocks down. Also can ride free trolley to Main St Durango. Really nice and happy hotel staff. Would recommend this hotel.
