On historic Second Avenue this charming historic B&B style hotel is a little haven right next to busy Main Avenue restaurants and galleries. Beautiful garden hosts summertime late afternoon concerts with drinks and light meals available benefitting local charities. Highly recommended by locals!

I will stay at the place again! I love the comfy vintage feel. The beds are wonderful and the breakfast in the courtyard garden made me never want to leave. A well-located Hotel in a beautiful old building. The staff is professional and very welcoming - a bonus!

A friend and I stayed for two nights, with a ride on the train during the day. Hotel is walking distance to the train station. The staff at the hotel was attentive without being intrusive. I will stay there every chance I get, and I am inspired to find more chances. (I would like more electrical outlets since we had... More

the room was pleasant enough, though small. We arrived near midnight to a locked door with no desk coverage, but making a call to a listed # got us into a box with our room key. The room was fine, bed comfortable, etc. However, the walls were paper thin. My wife and i were talking quietly and when we got... More

I recently stayed at the Rochester/Leland during a conference. The staff were very friendly and there's a comfortable feel that makes you feel at home. While amenities are limited they have nice touches such as tea and cookies available every afternoon and a bar available at request. I don't often get the chance to sleep in and so missed the...

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.
