We stayed for 3 nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The other rooms we saw had much larger TVs and had chairs. Water pressure in the shower is horrible and you get constant ice cold or scalding hot blast during your shower. Other than that no complaints. Its right in the middle of everything so walking to places... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us! The Rochester is an older building, and with that age does come occasional spikes in water pressure and temperature. We are so sorry that you had to deal with it. We enjoyed having your group stay with us, and we hope to see you in the future. More

Lovely spacious rooms each tied to its own Western movie, excellent continental breakfast with a different hot dish optional every day. Helpful friendly staff. One block from historic Main Street and a few minutes from the Durango - Silverton Railroad, and from the nicest restaurants. Only possible drawback for some people - no elevator to second floor.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We understand the lack of an elevator can be a bit difficult. However, we are always happy to help our guests carry a load up or down the stairs. More

Visited Durango, with my son, in April to attend the Fort Lewis College Parents preview weekend-stayed three nights at the hotel. This was our first visit to Durango. Prior to booking the room, I used Tripadvisor to find a room near the historic downtown area and not too far from the College. From the time we were greeted until the... More

I recently stayed here for only one night, since there was a wine festival going on in town. The place is expensive, I paid 140$ for one night for one of the more economical rooms, but the interior decor of the hotel was quite impressive. The old looking, red brick and wood hotel was a literal shrine to the Western... More

I stayed at the Rochester for five days last week, which is a long time to stay in one hotel. But it felt so much like home that I hated to leave! The rooms are large, charming, clean, and delightful--each room has a movie "theme" via posters that is fun without being kitschy. The service is fantastic; they seem to... More
