                The location is awesome & hotel is very clean.

                They have a nice pool

                The so called breakfast was disgusting. Don't fall for it being included, because its basically some toast, coffee and that's about it. The location is awful - impossible to get to at the wrong end of a one- way street. Lousy elevator access and no security per room to speak of. If you have no other choice for a hotel, this might be ok. But clearly its not the best choice in town.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Good breakfast and free cocktails

                The layout was bad. Some of the rooms have no windows like the one they offered us first but changed when we complained. Car parking is not very good particularly as it was being resurfaced when we were there. Also difficult to find being at the dead end of a street part of which is one way in the wrong direction.

                The courtesy of the staff. My vehicle had to be towed to Toyota which was several miles away; the staff had me shuttled there w/no complications; nice end to a .. hagard trip.

                My husband, teen daughter and I were in Durango to visit Ft. Lewis College. We needed to leave our luggage with the office for a few hours and they graciously allowed us to do that without any hesitation. They provided a shuttle to and from the college. The staff was friendly and very helpful! The room was very nice, clean with simple elegant decor.

                A little disappointed that the pool was temporarily closed but they did offer passes to another pool.

                Staff was friendly and accomodating. I had lots of luggage and requested for a unit on the ground level. Although he had reserved a room upstairs, he willingly obliged and found a unit where I can park my vehicle right in front of my unit.

                Nothing

              • Group of friends

                Nice hotel. Convenient to town.

                I was confused. I thought I had paid Bookings.com for the reservation and paid again at the hotel. Not your fault. I was confused regarding another reservation service.

              • Family with children
                8.2

                It was very comfortable and relaxing. The continental breakfast was excellent with a large variety of choices.

                The pool hours were not very long. We came in late about 915pm and it would have been great to have been abe to use the pool area. Also, the pool area seemed very public.

                It was updated had good breakfast and convient

                Reservation was lost, staff very uncaring and rude. Hot tub closed at 9 which is not listed on web site. Should have later adult hours. Parking bad

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                We loved the location and the price. Everything was very well maintained and clean. When we did need help with a malfunctioning remote, maintenance was there within minutes. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. We had a wonderful stay and would return again and recommend highly to friends.

                We had no complaints. Was a great experience.
