Parking was a pain, and with the construction happening, traffic was abysmal. There also appeared to be some sort of sewer leak after the 2nd day we were there and the 2nd elevator also went down, causing quite a delay. However, the hotel was extremely well kept and once the trail opens up on the river it will be great.

This property is in the heart of Durango on the river in a nice location. It seems newer and has underground parking. Overall, the property itself was nice. But the front desk staff was totally incompetent. I had an Expedia pre-paid reservation, but they charged my card as well and I spent 2 hours working with multiple people to get it resolved. It finally got resolved 4 days later, but that's the last thing you want to deal with on vacation. I've never experienced these kinds of issues with Holiday Inn Express in the past, but it makes me question whether I want to ever stay at one again.

Close to town so that's great. But VERY noisy. Harley motorcycles were parked right outside my window. Parking was cramped and limited so maybe that's why motorcycles were allowes to park on the sidewalk? Manager should have handled the unsafe and caotic parking in the main lot. It was dangerous. breakfast tasted like it was made off site. and jalepenos were in the eggs. not good for those that can't eat peppers.
