I stayed here with my wife and 7 year old, and we had a BLAST! The price of the room with two beds is much more cheaper then other locations. We ended up driving through the night and got to the hotel before check in, and they were able to get us in early to help us out. The room... More

I stayed the night at the Wapiti Lodge when I arrived in Durango prior to driving to Moab, Utah. I arrived close to midnight secondary to a late flight. The owner called my phone and left a message. I arrived to find an enclosed letter taped to the door with my name and room instructions. So thankful. The room was... More

Really disappointing. Had kids running the front desk, they were never there. If you want to flash back to the 60's with 50 years of wear and tear. This is your place! The bed was HORRIBLE linens were really worn. We had a bad tire on our bike so we stayed two nights. While I was getting a truck to... More

Though the place is dated, its a old school motor lodge. Its a family owned place and i respect that. Also, is pretty decent for the price. I would certainly stay here again. My wife and I walked from here to downtown, though some might think its far.

Wapiti lodge is clean and the room is large. The décor is dated and the carpets etc seem as though they need changing. The location is great - walking distance from the main street in Durango and very near the river which is beautiful. We booked via booking.com and when we arrived the price we were asked to pay was... More

Stayed here for 3 Nights on a Durango Motorcycle tour of the area. Older motel in close proximity to downtown (walking distance). Nice accommodations, good air conditioning and a shaded park/picnic area right out front with swings, BBQ and picnic benches. A 4 rating would have been given, except for age. It is well maintained

We stayed at Wapiti lodge for 2 nights. While the room itself was satisfactory, the service was definitely lacking. We returned to our room after a day out to find the room door open a crack. We then discovered that the maid had come and taken the trash, dirty towels and a tip that we had left. However she never... More

We (a vacationing couple in our late 50s) stayed here for 6 nights, in Room 24. We opted for a room with kitchenette and were happy we did--made a full pot of coffee each morning with supplies provided, used the large refrigerator and even the stovetop once. The mattresses were very comfortable, with plenty of pillows so you could adjust... More
