We love quaint mom and pop establishments, and rustic cabin type settings. I love giving good reviews...but in the case of the Siesta Motel my husband and I were quite disappointed. Firstly, however, credit where credit is due... The room was very clean! I'll give it that. Housekeeping did a good job with not only cleaning, but leaving little personal... More

We were so surprised at this place. The mom/pop owners could not have been any nicer and the room was huge and fantastic! Housekeeping even left a cute towel art flower on the bed. The room was very clean, comfortable and surprisingly quiet. We were on the end of the complex closest to 550 and had huge windows on 2... More

The Siesta Motel is a perfect place to stay...cozy, clean, convenient and close to the Animas Mountain hiking trail! We stayed 1 night in a queen size bed room visiting friends before driving to another CO town. Checking in and out was easy, it's the drive up to the door type of motel which is perfect for hauling luggage, cooler,... More

Great place to stay. They had the towels in the shape of a flower on the bed!! The room had an artistic touch, the towels and everything was very good quality, the hotel was well maintained.

It's an older place,but one that is very well maintained and clean. The beds are comfortable and in the room I stayed in had two recliners which was a very nice touch. It's a bit far from downtown and the parking lot is a kinda of tight, so be careful parking. Overall a very good place to stay.

I was in Durango to ride the Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. I found this motel on Trip Advisor and was impressed with the reviews.

Our room averaged $100 a night with a kitchenette with one broken burner and no saucepan. Although it is non-smoking, the room smelled (from decades of smokers?) and looked tired - almost dirty but I don't think it was actually and one of the pluses was a daily maid service. The decor was not so much retro as bizarre -... More
