As with all Best Western hotels its hard to predict the property condition without reading reviews. This place is a older facility but its in pretty good shape. Our room was clean, the beds were ok, the bathroom was ok, the towels were ok. It had a microwave and fridge and tv. The ac was a window unit type instead of a through the wall type typical of hotel rooms but it did the job despite the 90 degree heat.
The 416 fire made the whole town smell like smoke but the room did an adequate job of holding the smoke back. This will pass in a few more days so it is not a long term issue.
The staff was nice and right by the office they had a laundry and ice machine room. The pool and hot tub are really pretty good for their age, the pool actually had a deep end at 9 ft so you know its been there a while. The hot tub was tile and worked well. Even with a cold wind blowing off a thunderstorm the pool area was warm enough to go swimming. The pool dome is right in front next to the sidewalk.
The dome over the pool was older but its doing its job the way its supposed too. The sitting area next to the pool outside the dome was nice too with several chairs.
Parking was a little tight as is typical with this style of lodging but there were enough places to go around. Breakfast was good with bacon, eggs, breads, cereal, waffles etc. And the all important green salsa found in this area.
I would stay here again no problem, I would not call this a destination resort but in all honesty you are probably looking for a place to stay to get on the train. Durango is not Ouray, it has a historic downtown but on the other side of town it also has walmart,a mall area, red lights, traffic, and everything that goes with a town of its size.
This place does have the advantage of parking right in front of the rooms so if you have a lot of luggage or mobility issues your car is close. less
