Ideal for family and kids! Staying at the resort allows for ski on ski out, and great access directly to slopes. The restaurants are ok, I suggest going to store in Durango. Stayed in 2 story, 4 bedroom condo, the club level is beneficial because breakfast is free. Great staff very friendly too!

The Lodge is beautifully decorated and luxurious in construction. However, it is quite filthy. When we arrived, there were shavings left in the bathroom sink and on the counter - making us feel as though the room had not been cleaned between occupants. We asked for a more thorough cleaning, but one was never provided. The room in which we... More

We stayed at the Purgatory Lodge, 5 th floor. We were treated really special. Very good experience. The snow was fantastic, the view was fantastic . And the service was superb!! I would stay there again, especially the 5th floor.

There are several buildings to this "resort"...some have nice rooms with suites. Some are equal to camping. A pull-down full size bed in an efficiency space. Another room we got "upgraded" to was part of a 2-rm suite that had a dividing door to shut off the bedroom that we got to stay in. I have stayed in much nicer... More

We loved staying at Purgatory Lodge at DMR. The condos are updated and clean. The kids love the game and the parents love the connecting fireplace restaurant. They provide free continental breakfast, have a great hot tub and pool. It was a perfect place for our family to visit! We'll be back!

Durango is an amazing place for families, and provides something for all levels of mountain sport enthusiasts. Snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, etc. I plan to do the dogsled adventure in the future. We simply ran out of time on this trip. The village has a few fun shops, but plan to do most of your grocery shopping in Durango proper, before... More

Durango is a great little town with great scenery. Much to do and great places to eat. The Lodge is kind of far from Durango. The Resort has much to offer. The rooms were fine but we could hear voices and TV from the room next to us. Housekeeping was below average...didn't make the bed or replace the shampoo. Front... More

This hotel was very clean and extremely spacious. The kids loved the activities like the alpine slide and the bungee trampoline. There is a family room with a movie every night (however there is also a foosball table in the same room as the movie so if there are other kids in there you can't hear the movie. For the... More

Our condo was beautifully appointed, with furnished balcony overlooking the mountains. My children loved all the activities right outside of our door (esp the alpine slide and fooseball), so they were never bored. We also hiked quite a bit nearby. It was a 30-min drive to Durango, which seemed longer every time we drove there.

This is a ski lodge but the summer attractions make it a year round destination. We took 2 of our grandchildren, ages 8 & 9, here for 5 days. We hiked, bungee jumped on the trampoline (their favorite), bobsled rode, panned for gold, hampster ball flopped around and fished. They had a great time and we did too since the... More
