The hotel is about 5-8 minutes from the Durango Train Station. There is a trolly that stops by the hotel but it doesn't run on Sunday's. The rooms are average but comfortable and clean. The indoor pool is heated and big and the Jacuzzi is a warm 104 and big. Loved it!!! They serve a hot breakfast each morning, eggs,...

We have stayed many times at Best Western Mountain Shadows while visiting my Daughter at Fort Lewis College. We love the value and size of the rooms. Our room was recently renovated and included beautiful new counter tops and shower. We were pleased with the hotel prior to the renovation, but were pleasantly surprised with the new decor, both in...

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights since were are BW Rewards Members. We picked this BW despite a couple of others in the area. We were happy with the room, but the location was in a corner and we had a brick wall to look at from our window. This wasn't a show stopper as...

Hotel was clean and located where I wanted to be. Convenient for my wife and I. Staff was super and friendly, when we come back we will stay here again. Even though it is an older building, the updates and improvements made this a great stay.

I spent a night here during a Motorcycle ride through Durango. They took me in as a last minute booking and were super-friendly. The room was good and I have no complaints in that regard. I thought it was just a little pricey all things considered. I left before they served their breakfast, so I did not get a sample...

We stayed here for 3 nights in July while sightseeing. An older hotel with outside rooms, but clean and comfortable. The only complaint I would have is adequate parking. Pool area is pretty neat with it being in a glass roofed inside area.

Stayed here for 2 nights this past August is one of the spa rooms. Room was clean with lots of space. Included a glass enclosed shower and a whirlpool bathtub. Staff was friendly and super knowledgeable. Had great recommendations for things to see and places to eat. Will stay here again next time we come through town.
