Wasn't sure what to expect but on a daily basis I was impressed with the facility and staff at Purgatory Lodge. We got a mountain view condo. 3 bedroom with 3 baths. Nice kitchen with stainless appliances. Nice little covered patio. Knowing that it had a kitchen, we wanted to stop for groceries on the way up to the lodge.... More

We decided to stay at the Purgatory Lodge for a quick ski get away -- boy were we disappointed. The Lodge was empty and they gave us a room facing a building. The food was terrible, and you had to drive about thirty miles to get to Durango. And very expensive for a nothing experience. And, they need to start... More

Great family ski area for intermediate ski families. Never felt crowded even though the ski resort was full. Our family's favorite was skiing to the back and hanging at Chair Lift 8. Totally uncrowded, lots of blue run choices and ski right up to Dante's for hot chocolate or lunch!

We stayed in a 3 bedroom, East Rim condo- #11A - for 3 nights - it was right across from where we checked in. The condo was great - decorated very nicely. It had a dishwasher and also a washer & dryer.There were 6 adults and 5 children in our party. I made my reservations through a website called Gateway... More

This is a great place for families. The staff were excellent. They always were smiling and doing whatever they could to make our vacation fantastic! We really love this place. We would come back anytime. The resort is very clean and well kept. They also offer free guided nature walks on Tuesday and Thursday. The resort is in a great... More

We visited this property last week. Although we did not stay on the property and just went for the day to do all the activities, it looked like a really nice lodge. The grounds are well kept and very clean. My family and I did all of the activities (yes, including the bull riding) which were great! It is a... More

First: this is a destination hotel. Everything closes at 5 and there are limited dining options with Durango proper 30 miles away. That being said, the review is based on the hotel/condo itself. Rooms are individually decorated. Ours was average and a little dated. Bathroom was below average. Pools were great. Parking was ample (summer visit). Wi-Fi is non-existent, despite... More

The parking arrangements, friendly retail staff, and swimming pools/jacuzzis were great. However, the privately owned condos where lodging staff will place you are often in disrepair. Ours had one place setting, a filthy balcony, and damaged bathroom fixtures and carpet. This time for us, it was definitely a level below a well operated 2 or 2 1/2 star hotel.

For three nights we enjoyed the magnificent views and total comfort afforded by our condo at Purgatory Lodge. Beautifully furnished, immaculately clean, and with plenty of space, we enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen, the huge bathroom and shower, and especially the balcony for our morning coffee. The Direct TV provided plenty of entertainment choices, although there are plenty of activity choices... More

We stayed at the purgatory with out grand daughter and had a wonderful time. We stayed in Apartment 511 which was beautifully furnished, had a wonderful view of the ski lift area. the balcony was big and could be accessed from the bedroom as well. The bathroom was impeccable. I brought my own hair dryer and promptly forgot it. But... More
