Very happy with location of our room. She accommodated us since we were on our motorcycle. Other than that, the place was sub-par. Vanity in bathroom area was SO tiny!!! I got bruises on my elbow from hitting the towel rack over and over again! VERY close to train tracks. Train whistles were WAY loud, hurting our ears if we... More

This hotel was located in a great area. Nice and quiet area. The only disadvantage is the pool is indoors in the atrium and can be noisy if needing a rest. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Breakfast was plentiful.

Location is key. This hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to Main Street where all the shops and restaurants are. Hotel is nice and quiet but the price we paid for the size of room we got I was less than happy. Small room, smaller bathroom. If my wife wanted to stay here again I would. Just me? no... More

The hotel was elegantly designed to fit the ambiance of a Western resort location. There was convenient access to the room by stairs and through an elevator. The indoor pool and jacuzzi was centrally located. The staff was friendly and courteous, quick to answer questions. Check in and check out were completed quickly. The hotel was within walking distance of... More

This motel is accessible to downtown Durango and the narrow gauge train ride and is very convenient. Guests are treated to a happy hour each evening and a wonderful hot breakfast in the morning. The staff is friendly and professional and the rooms are well-appointed and more than comfortable. We highly recommend it to anyone staying in Durango.

I was reminded how much a hotel can make a stay special at the Best Western Rio Grande Hotel. An amazing breakfast with everyone able to find just the perfect start for the day. An indoor pool kept my granddaughter very happy. Desk was ready to help with directions, suggestions, and the smiles were not just on their faces-they were... More

This is a nice hotel with nice rooms. Great pool and hot tub atrium, just wish the pool area did not close so early in the evening. Within walking distance of downtown Durango, great that you can leave the car and walk to shopping and dining.

Thank you very much for the great review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry about the pool hours but with it being inside and surrounded by guests rooms the noise can be a factor for those guests that retire early. We greatly appreciate your input and your business. Enjoy the fall season.... More

The hotel is in a beautiful setting and very close to down town. It made it easy to walk to Shopping and eating places. It is also centrally located for motorcycle trips to Silverton and Mesa Verde. The Silverton Train is also with in a block or two. The Pool, Breakfast, and Happy hour were a nice surprise.

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
