Price was good for our motorcycle group but the rooms could use some updating. The person at the desk did act like she was on something and breakfast was lacking. We sat around outside the rooms and played music and sang with some other guest so i would have given a 4 star but when we pulled through the center... More

Very pleasant staff. TV, micro-wave, refrigerator. Very pet friendly hotel. Dogs everywhere. Unfortunately, if you have pets you must stay in an un-renovated room. Dirty worn carpet. The bed that sucks all into the middle. The hot water was just a trickle; not enough pressure to rinse a razor. Shaved in cold water (just like the field). It's a loft... More

Iron Horse is a quiet little out of the way place right next to the historic Steam powered train that runs from Durango to Silverton. If you stay here you must get the deluxe track side room. Or don't stay! This gives you a tiny 2 story condo, sort of. Upstairs is a queen bed...fantastic super private view of the... More

We recently stayed here while working on a job in the area. The only problem we had was there was no wi-if. My husband has to have Internet for the job. Other than that, it was a nice place to stay. Loved being close to the train tracks

Old and run down. Mattresses are horrible. Carpet very worn. Rooms have a great layout with a loft bedroom plus a double bed downstairs an the location is great due to the Durango Silverton Railroad but the property needs a lot of investment to bring it back to it's glory days.

The room was half the price of others closer to town. It was okay, but very outdated and old. The tub had hunks out of it and the shower must have been there since they opened. There was dog hair in our bed, the remote to the downstairs tv was missing. When I went immediately back to the office to... More

Our camping plans at Vallecito earlier this month fell through due to rainy weather, and we needed to find a place to stay for a couple of nights fast. We remembered staying here years ago and that it was a quirky fun place so we looked it up on the road, worried we wouldnt find any where else so late,... More

I got charged twice, paid cash and was told that my credit card was needed for security issues (which I understood since I worked at a hotel before). Fortunately, I asked for a receipt because nothing was given when I checked in. I didn't noticed the charge on my credit card until I was home (4 hours away) I called... More

The Iron Horse Inn is quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It was booked because the website was nice and gave us the impression that the hotel would be a good one. The room had dirty carpet, miss matched sinks and the a/c didn't reach the second bedroom which is located upstairs. There are several rooms... More

The housekeeping seemed good and was the best attribute of our room. There was no place to hang clothes until we complained and they installed a rod under the stairs. The tub and sink drained slowly. The toilet did not flush properly. The light over the bathroom counter is inadequate. The tub taps leak. The room is awkwardly arranged with... More
