“Great accommodation in a beautiful town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Half way through a 3 week road trip we stopped off in Durango for a few days off. I’m so glad we chose to stay here. It’s nothing too fancy, but I also think their website undersells it a bit. The rooms might be of average size (with views of the car park), but they are immaculately kept and the complimentary toiletries were actually nice enough that you wanted to use them. It's a small thing, but an effort that many places wouldn't bother with. The hot tub was hot and the pool was beautiful and refreshingly cool for a change. It’s located near the train station so you’re immersed in the sound of the steam train a couple of times a day which gives it a bit of added ambiance. Hassle free and relaxing. And it’s in Durango. You cant go wrong.

The Durango Lodge is amazing! After a not so good stay in another town, we arrived at the Durango Lodge to check in. Our reservation was ready; the person at the desk was so nice and friendly...the room was wonderful!
We had a king room, balcony over looking the street and some of downtown, I could have stayed there forever!!
We could tell right away it was worth every penny!!
Make sure if you destination is Durango, Colorado; the Durango Lodge is on your list...make your reservations the rooms go quickly!! You can sit on the balcony and listen to the train whistle, then walk down a few blocks at eat at Francisco's.....We are going back!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms with the balconies.....amazing

Smelly, dirty, and no really good parking. If its for just a night, well, OK, but if you plan on staying, look further. We were advised it was a good place...not good advice. Maybe we were expecting something better but this is not our idea of great! The only good thing is it is near the narrow gauge train and close to town.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

Located right smack downtown, the Durango Lodge, although dated and showing it's age, is the spot to stay. Park your car and never touch it again while you are checked in. Our first room really had a foul odor and the desk clerk suggested immediately moving us to another room which, although near the first room, was odor free and noticeably cooler. Good move there.
There is a pool and a hot tub on site although we didn't feel the urge to use it.
This property is overdue for a make over and hopefully they won't raise rates if that happens as it is still relatively affordable to stay here. Recommended.

Room Tip: Don't get the corner room above the office...it stinks!

A great central location for the lovely town of Durango. Its location does mean its not always quiet, the trains can be heard etc which was fine for me but some may not like that. Nice pool and I had no problem with Wi-Fi or TV. The breakfast range was limited.

We stayed at the Durango Lodge for 4 nights. The location is super, since it is right in the middle of things, close to many good restaurants and a block from the Durango-Silverton Railroad! You can easily tour down town on foot from here. The rooms are not brand new, but they are clean and the management does a good job. There is a very nice small pool and hot tub, also. The rates were competitive as well.

The WiFi never worked, and the staff at the desk didn't care, and wasn't in a position to do anything about it. Apparently, that's handled by the owner, and the owner isn't anywhere to be found (Mumbai, maybe). The AC/heat pump roared like they all do. The speaker on the TV was tinny. That said, the staff was helpful in the things they could handle, the room was clean and the furniture was better than average. Excellent location, and priced well, considering it was Durango during the summer.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are usually quieter.
