Great hotel near Durango

Pros: Proximity to Bayfield, rooms, services, restaurant, staff.
Cons: A bridge is out near Bayfield, so GPS directions are not accurate right now.
Location: It is about 30 min. from Durango and 20 from the west side of Bayfield. Durango has a lot to offer--the train ride to Silverton, skiing, hiking, etc.
I highly recommend the Sky Ute Casino. Even if you're not looking for casino action, this is a great place to stay! Our room was spacious as was the bath. Having a shower plus a tub adds versatility. The restaurant we ate a late dinner at was good too (the mid-priced one). Overall a great experience!

nice overnight stay

We only stayed overnight but it was nice. It would be nice when u book your room you would be able to request a room with a balcony, otherwise you might get a room with no ventilation since the windows do not open and the doors overlooking the dining also do not open. Balconys are first come first serve and if u don't check in by three you're outa luck.

Great Hotel, but plan to eat somewhere else.

The hotel was great. Our rooms were very nice and comfortable, staff was all pleasant and helpful and they have the best hotel pool I have ever seen. The one negative experience we had was dining in the hotel. We got in on a Saturday and we were all tired so we decided to just go down and have the buffet. The menu advertised the Saturday buffet as Turkey and dressing, ham... general thanksgiving food. Adds on the hotel channel on the TV were for a $8.99 buffet, and we saw other add for steak and shrimp or BBQ ribs and chicken at that price. When we got to the buffet, which was four or five items total, it turned out to be Mexican food... and bad Mexican food at that. It was like they made the family size Swanson TV dinner style enchiladas early in the morning and left them under a heat lamp all day. The food was dry, overcooked and just generally not very good. When the bill came, it was $180 for nine people, including a mandatory 20% gratuity... on a buffet. $20 per person is a fair price for good food, but this buffet would have been a disappointment at half that price. Overall we enjoyed our stay quite a bit. The rooms were nice and spacious, the casino was fun and the pool was excellent. The bad dining experience wasn't enough to ruin the stay, but it certainly didn't help. I don't mind losing my money in the casino, but I wish I hadn't gambled on the buffet.

Clean and beautiful

Pros: Clean beautiful rooms with comfortable beds and good odds on the slot machines. Great design of building structure.
Cons: Cost of steak dinners were too high for being in steer country.
Location: There didn't seem to be anything nearby not even a gas station.
Very clean room with comfortable beds. Good odds on slot machines.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Good news, the casino is the first stoplight when you come into town. Ignacio has many gas stations, grocery stores, museum and much more!

Great rooms!

Pros: The room decor was beautiful. Also, we got in late and we're still able to get dinner down in the casino area.
Cons: The shower looked pretty, but was hard to turn on/ get into without getting water everywhere.
Location: Close to Durango.
My family and I stopped and stayed a night at Sky Ute while on a road trip to California. It had the nicest rooms we stayed in on our entire trip! And, you can't beat the price.

We had a comfortable stay at the Sky Ute.

Pros: Easy to find. Not far from NM border.
Cons: The cable TV. Not a very good selection.
Location: There's a casino, nice restaurant, bowling alley, and nice pool. Durango & Pagosa Springs near by.
Nice grounds to walk the dog. Good coffee in the room. Not very many channels to watch on TV. Only 1 HBO channel. We were given a late check-out when we asked. Would go back.
