The rooms were clean properly priced spacious but the best thing about the hotel were the people that worked there. They were informative they knew about places to go and things to do. We stayed during Thanksgiving and they helped us by showing us what restaurants would be open on that day. They offered up the information we didn't even... More

The receptionist did a really good job of letting us know of the best places to eat and some of the points of interest. We were also able to enjoy some fresh cookies in the afternoon and the breakfast was really good. Don't know where they got the green chili sauce for the eggs but I would love to have... More

We enjoyed this motel. The room was large, with a very comfortable bed. We really liked that the bathroom had two sinks. Good location--minutes from downtown. The breakfast was enjoyable (eggs, bacon, salsa), although the breakfast room was very cramped. Nice indoor pool with a pretty view of the mountains through the clear roof.

Everything was as expected. I stayed at several Best Westerns while I was the State of Utah's Communication Specialist III. This hotel was just as expected by being clean, comfortable, and had a friendly staff. It is at about the opposite end of town from the Silverton Train Depot, but it is a small town. It is also very close... More

We were 3 minutes from where we needed to be. Extremely friendly staff in office. Super comfy bed which we greatly appreciated. Clean and tidy room every day was wonderful - we felt spoiled! We would definitely come back! Room 230 upstairs - nice & quiet, good view too!

It's an older Motel but well maintained & updated. It's close enough to walk, or grab the trolley to Historic downtown Durango. I noticed how folks were working hard to make travelers stay away from home comfortable. Good breakfast buffet.

The hotel was fine for the price in the area. The employees were very nice and the breakfast was good. The location was close enough to everything. We would stay here again in the future in ever in the area.

We stayed at the Best Western Mountain Shadows in Durango, Colorado, for 1-night in late Sep ($132). It is located on the north end of Main Street, a 5-min drive to Durango's historic downtown core. It is a 2-storey, outside room-entry building with a typical horseshoe layout that encloses the parking lot and a geodesic dome housing the swimming pool... More

Excellent beds, clean, practical, efficient and excellent friendly staff willing to help. The proximity to downtown Durango is just right, out of the center but close enough for a five minute foray to get back to the center or a good jump to head North out of town.
