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 It was okay, but very outdated and old.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

Was talked into this place by hotels.com phone operator unfortunately. Ended up with a restless nights sleep. Outdated and extremely sketchy. My boyfriend slept with a knife beside our bed just to be safe if needed. The adjoining doors for the next door bedroom looked like it had been kicked down before. It barely locked and was unlocked when we... More

Our family of 4 stayed here 2 nights after waiting too long to book a "standard" hotel and not wanting to pay high, last minute booking prices. The location is fine, the rooms are dated but okay for the price -- kind of a campy feel, but the lack of decent A/C is hard to take after a long day... More

Our first impression was NOT good but it was turned around quickly. We booked a "Standard" room for 3 nights for our Durango part of our vacation. The reviews were mixed so I was a little leery. The day of check in I called to let them know we would be checking in late and I asked to confirm we... More

We called the Iron Horse Inn our home base for 2 nights as we explored the spectacular surroundings of Durango and the San Juan Mountains. Most important was that it was pet-friendly, so based on that alone, I am appreciative of any place that welcomes our boys. And boy, oh boy, are they pet-friendly. Almost everyone at the Inn had...

My Daughter and I were finishing up a 2300 mi 4 day college tour and was scheduled to visit Ft Lewis College in Durango on June 26th. Coming from the Denver area, we knew we would be late and called the hotel to let them know and to arrange a late arrival. They informed us there would be a note... More
