I had occasion to spend 2 nights/3 days in Durango, specifically for its close location to the Durango-Silverado train station. Didn't realize it was also extremely convenient to being adjacent to the downtown area. Also, right off the 2 highway connections. As I lived and worked for 11 years in San Francisco, Durango area reminded me of the Marin County... More

This was the perfect hotel for our first stay in Durango. Check in staff was very friendly. We stayed 3 nights mid-week and found the rates to be reasonable for the area. Two special benefits - free happy hour AND a great breakfast buffet. The happy hour and breakfast were in the same location in the hotel and always kept... More

We stayed at this property because of the convenience to town and the college, indoor pool and continental breakfast. We got way more than expected!! Breakfast was outstanding with everything you could imagine to eat. The complimentary "happy hour" was a very nice surprise. I will stay here again.

The Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn in Durango was perfect for our trip to Durango. Virtually in downtown, we could walk everywhere we needed to go. Free happy hour!!!! Nice breakfast buffet in the AM. Great front desk staff. Couldn't have asked for more! A good time was had by all!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus. We arrived late at night only to find out that the suite that we had booked was not available. (The people who were there the night before had refused to more out despite the fact that we had booked the room months before them and management had told them several... More

Nice hotel. We stayed in the Queen Suite on the second floor. The balcony was a disappointment for us because it looked out on the roof of the entrance to the hotel. Being in Durango we imagined a great view. Unless you book the third floor king suite don't waste your money on the Queen suite. Also the living room... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. I have addressed your concerns with the housekeeping manager.

Love the location - close to Main Street but far enough that it was quiet. The room was spacious, clean and had a balcony. The bed was one of the best hotel beds I ever slept on. The continental breakfast was good. They had extras like scrambled eggs, Canadian bacon, etc. We thought the free drinks in the evening were... More

Walking distance to D&SNG. Actually, can see and hear the trains being switched in the rail yard, and smell the aroma of burning coal from the hotel property. If riding the train, you are already parked free at the hotel. Our room was exceptionally clean and super quiet. The hotel was full and we thought we were the only ones... More

Another great trip to Durango and the walking distance to the train BW Plus Rio Grande Inn. Beautiful property with fantastic staff and clean rooms. Comfortable beds and 2 free cocktails for the over 21 guests each night! Can't beat that. A fantastic indoor pool for the kids and a glass elevator too.

Stunning location and fantastic staff. Rooms were spacious and clean with a whirlpool bath and balcony. Interior is a little dated, and the only negative was that the rooms are very dark (there are no windows only two doors - one to the hallway and one to the balcony). This meant that in order to have privacy you have to... More
