          It's right on the Animas River trail, and my room looked right out on the river - gorgeous!! Also, ?? - they didn't have my booking - it hadn't gone through - but were immediately reassuring and let me know there was no problem. Very helpful!

          Excellent value and allows dogs.

          Wished they had a small breakfast of sorts

          It was nice to be on the River and walking distance to town

          Two double beds. When you are used to sleeping in a king, double beds are too small. When we asked to be changed after the first night, the attendant on duty had a bad attitude.

          Our double queen room was great for 2 adults traveling together. We both had queen sized beds.The beds and the pillows were excellent! The room was very clean, very comfortable and all services were A+. We were very close to downtown Durango and all of the shops and restaurants were within walking distance.

          The only thing that we did not like about the Durango Downtown Inn was that we could not open our windows. We had a nice double/queen room on the second floor of the motel. We paid an extra $10 for a river view, but we could not open our windows to hear the river. That was disappointing. The only way to get any ventilation into the room was to use the fan/air conditioning unit. In the mountains, that seems to be a real waste of energy, considering that in the high mountains, most of the year, one can have great cool air in the mornings and evenings.

          We were very surprised at how nice and convenient this motel was. Great service and we even returned on our way back out of the mountains and stayed there again on Wednesday night.

          The staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. Comfortable bed was a plus!

          There is nothing I didn't like at the Durango Downtown Inn and would definitely stay here again!

          I booked at the Durango Downtown Inn for its location. We had a room on the river side and the historic downtown area was three blocks away. Full of fantastic restaurants and unique shopping. Close to the Durango-Silverton railroad. Close proximity to the trolley. Loved walking along the bike path by the river in the cool mornings. We were able to do and see a lot of things without having to use the car.

          The river walk trail was a great walk and we enjoyed it everyday. The location of the Inn is close to the old town, restaurants and shopping.

          Place was nice enough. A little pricey for what you get. Overall, decent enough to sleep in.

          My wife's neck hurt the next morning due to the pillows. Crossing the major hwy to get to town was a little dicey, not bad though.

          Easy walking distance to the downtown area if you are on a tight budget, this is a decent place to stay

          A bit rundown. Didn't realize they allowed pets in any of the rooms, so they used an ionizer when started having trouble breathing. It helped, but we would have left if we could have found another room in town. They only change sheets after 3 days unless you ask.

          We felt the location on the river close and only a block away from the downtown area was a real asset. Also, having the Applebee's Restaurant right at the complex was convenient for late arrivals or catching an quick breakfast without having to drive somewhere for breakfast. Another great plus is their wonderful pet-friendly attitude as we felt welcome right away and were only charged $10.00/day for our pet. The indoor pool, sauna and hot tub area was very clean.

          In most places we stay, there are usually either a microwave or a small refrigerator/freezer that was missing at this motel.

          My family and I came to Durango for a school visit at Fort Lewis and we found the location of your hotel perfect. We were also able to visit Mesa Verde which was a short car trip away. Our room was comfortable and clean and had all the amenities we needed for a short weekend trip. The river right outside our door was an added bonus and the kids got a kick out of the fruit trees you had at the entrance to the lobby. When we went down to the front desk to request an additional shampoo and towel your staff was very nice and helpful. Check in and out was very easy and smooth.
