We stayed here four nights - originally booking what was billed as a "hotel room" with a king bed. When we checked in, we found that we were actually at a condo type building with individual owners that are rented as hotel rooms - the hotel room, commonly called a lock off, was not quite a lock off. It was a small room with a bed, one chair, a small tv, a small dresser and a closet. The bathroom was bigger and a bit nicer.
My first thought was "oh, no! four nights!". We called and got an upgrade to a one bedroom unit, which included a kitchen, dining room, living room, deck, bedroom, and bathroom. It was much bigger.
The units are apparently furnished by the owners so each is different. The one we rented was fine. Clean but could have been cleaner. The linens were never changed but the bed was made each day. Waste baskets were emptied and towels were exchanged. But the sinks were never even wiped down in the bathroom - we left a good tip each day, hoping for good service, but that's what we got.
We never saw anyone in the halls or building - it was pretty quiet, and looked up to the ski slopes. The blinds in the room were wood and if you didn't lower them exacly right, the slats fell out. The handle on the window fell off when we closed it. There is no air conditioning. This place is about 45 minutes from the old town area in Durango.
We paid a good price for this - almost $500 for 4 nights with one night called "free". I think that there might be a better place to stay.
