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

So sorry your experience was poor. This was definitely a bad oversight and I will follow up on who was working that day and make sure they are reprimanded. We hope you give us another chance. 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

This is an old fashioned, family run motorcourt. It's not fancy, but it's clean, safe and very comfortable. No little packs of coffee here: Tupperware full of good quality roast. Nice seats outside the room for a smoke and a beer, if you're so inclined. All mod cons...fridge,micro etc. Smallish flat screen, but adequate. Shortage of outlets for charging, though.... More

This motel features rooms that vary by size and amenities, so make sure you ask what the room has before you go. We stayed in #12, which is on the end of the motel. It had a living area, a dining area with a full bed, a bedroom with a king, a full kitchen with most dishware, and a bathroom.... More

We stayed at this hotel while on a roadtrip. We stayed in a room (#12) that had a master bedroom, a living room, a bed next to the dining table and a full bathroom and kitchen.

The rooms where clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Even though it was close to road, it was quiet. Also the location is close yon town. Enjoyed the two nights. It is a small hotel with a great room rate!

A nice, clean hotel with friendly staff. Internet is slow. Busy road out front, but it quiets right down after 9:00pm. Biker friendly, with cleaning rags, bucket, and a hose available. The shower rocks. Best water pressure I've experienced in years. Easy walk to downtown Durango. Restaurant right across the street.

My husband and I stayed here on 2 separate occasions this January , it was perfect for the price, beds were comfortable and room was clean, despite being close to highway 160, I did not hear any traffic noise, I love how close it is to downtown Durango,without being exorbitant in price. We would definitely stay there again, Thank you... More
