Horrible. We showed up at 8:45 to find the office closed at 8. We tried many times to call manager, when she did finally answer her phone she told us they were closed and hung up on us. There were no other rooms in this town and had to drive another to find a room, plus still got billed for that room that we couldn't stay in. Very bad business traits.

Dear Greg, On Jan 13 2019 you made the reservation for July 15, 2019 On Jan, 14 2:55pm I replied to you with our office hours 8 am to 8 pm and to please call if you would be later then 6pm On July 14, 2019 2:19 pm I sent you a Reconfirmation with the same information as above. On July 15, 2019 7:50 pm I sent you another email wanting to know what time you were checking in again with the office hours. On July 15, 2019 7:42 pm I text you to see what time you were planning on checking in, only to find out it was a landline # you provided. On July 15, 2019 10:02pm you called and left a message on my office # which means you got to my office just before that at 10 pm You called Expedia (Travelocity) only to learn again my office hours and cancelation policy. I reached out 5 times to you with no response. We kept the office opened until 9:30pm with no show and no call. There was nothing else I could do. I am sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you. We would have been more than happy to provide late check in instructions if only you called, text, or mailed. Sincerely Marlene

A reasonably priced throwback to the pre-chain era

Pros: This motel is operated by a very nice middle-aged couple who clearly have their hearts in providing a nice place to stay. They're friendly and helpfu
Cons: The bed was too soft for me, okay for my wife. The new a/c was hard to control (no instructions w/it). The shower temp varied depending on who else wa
Location: It's in Durango, jumping-off point for Silverton, Ouray, Telluride. Durango is a cute, town. Nightly music is a pleasure, esply Diamond Belle Saloon.
The sign says it's the best kept secret in Durango, and that might be true, considering the very high prices of most other places.

Pleasant older motel.

Pros: Clean, quiet.
Location: Edge of the town business district.
We knew we would arrive late so called, and the owner said he would leave our room open with the key in it, and we could sign the registration papers in the morning. All worked out beautifully. The place is nothing fancy but clean and quiet. No breakfast, but he gave us a good tip for where to go.

Vintage Motel

Pros: Location. Fact that it is quite soundproof -- important being right on the highway and attracting a number of motorcyclists. Free WiFi.
Cons: Update plumbing fixtures. Lots of water waste now. Slightly bigger bars of soap. Hair-dryer in the room, perhaps.
Location: Downtown Durango is right down the road, and the motel is along the local trolley route.
Convenient location for our purposes, but quite dated. Dated furnishings with an attempt to make it Southwestern. Mid-century modern might have been a better choice. The enclosed gazebo in front seemed to get a lot of use.
