If I could do a 5+ that's what I would do. But since they cap me at 5, know that I'm adding the + on my own. From start to finish our experience was top notch for customer service. When I booked the reservation the gentleman was super nice. Turns out we are both from Fort Collins so we chatted... More

We have a dog, and they have two dedicated dog rooms that are off of a little patio area. The room was warm and decorated "old west". The breakfasts are amazing and gourmet, and all the people at the hotel were friendly and very helpful. The Rochester is close to downtown and many nice restaurants. You can get a drink... More

This is a great old but refurbished downtown hotel, very convenient to everything! The staff are very nice and helpful, the rooms are large and nicely furnished with antiques etc, the beds are comfy and the breakfast is lovely, parking is easy too! Have stayed a few times and always try to book here when visiting Durango!

We've stayed at the Rochester 5 times, every time has been wonderful. Close to skiing, hiking or just a walk around town. A pleasant place to put your feet up after a day of activity. Great breakfast meals and good conversation with staff.

For nearly 20 years I have been traveling to Durango for business and this is always my first choice. Now, I just need to figure out a way to get to Durango for vacations as well. The staff is top notch, friendly, and takes a personal interest in making you feel at home. Breakfast is delicious. Short walk to dinner... More

This is by far the most wonderful hotel/b & b we have ever stayed . The staff is superb and the breakfast delicious every single day. All in all it is a warm western experience. We have stayed with them on several occasions and feel like we are coming home. Location is perfect! H

I love the feel of this place from the warm welcome to the cozy rooms and wonderful breakfasts. I stayed for a week, waiting for end of construction on a new build. I hated to leave when my house was finished. The hotel also hosts music events in its courtyard once a week through the summer and fall. Great spot... More

My favorite place to stay in Durango! The staff is wonderful. They show you to your room and are willing to help you with anything you need. Amazing breakfast and unique rooms, each with their own theme. Great location, just a block from main street. Beautiful outside seating area and bikes to rent. Definitely recommend! We'll be back.

Perfect location for travelers who would like to walk out their door to find everything. We stayed in the Loft room. The separate entrance was nice to have. Also there wasn't any attached rooms to this room. It was located above a shop. It felt more like a vacation rental than staying at a hotel. The room was decorated nice... More

I stayed in a suite (room #8) and this room was wonderful. Very quiet and nice sitting area. Beautifully decorated and very close to all of the bars and restaurants in Durango. Love the charm of this place and all the historic photos and furniture. Can't say enough about the service. I forgot some jewelry in the room and the... More
