“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

A surprisingly quiet hotel tucked behind the Durango-Silverton train station. Within walking distance to everything on Main St. and not far from local public transportation stops. Quiet room, even though a main highway is nearby. A great location and friendly, helpful staff. Would stay here again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. We do have a great location, close to town but away from all the noise and activity on Main Avenue. We are happy that you enjoyed our hotel and all that it has to offer. We appreciate your positive feedback and your business.

This was our anniversary trip and the manager plus the rest of the staff made this one of the more relaxing visits we've had in some time. Staff is very friendly and attentive. This a must stay location. Great morning breakfast and the evening cocktails were a real bonus. The pool and spa are more for the family's enjoyment. The small patios were really a plus for us. It is walking distance to everything downtown, so you can leave you car and not have to worry about a thing. You would be amiss not to give the Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn serious consideration for any Durango stay.

Basic, comfortable, all amenities, clean & great value in an ideal location to get to Purgatory for a great ski day or just flop in town and walk 2 blocks to charming downtown that includes shopping, good food, healthy food choices too, & fun breweries.

Thank you so much for the great review. We are so happy that you decided to stay in town with us. There are so many options in town for entertainment and dining and the ski resort is only a 30 minute drive from the hotel. We hope that you come back and stay with us again when you are in the Durango area. We appreciate the positive feedback and your business.

Family stayed in a Suite and really enjoyed the Best Western Rio Grande. The room was excellent, breakfast was fresh, the pool design in a centralized atrium was very cool. You can't beat the location of this hotel to historic downtown Durango. Reastaurants and shops are an easy wasy walk away.

Thank you for the great review. We are so happy that your family enjoyed the pool and the hotel amenities. We do have a great location for all that Durango has to offer. We are right downtown-no busy streets to cross and you can park in our lot and wander around at your leisure without having to feed a parking meter. We all hope that you will come back and stay with us again someday soon.

Nice lipstick job. worn out electrical, staff doesn't respond or care. Average hotel breakfast. Requested safety items to be repaired, ignored by staff. Pay your life insurance before staying at this fire hazard. I stay at Holiday Inn when in Durango

Hotel was older but in the process of upgrades. Staff was great and hotel was centrally located to downtown, within walking distance of EVERYTHING. Breakfast and happy hour were great. Hotel was very clean, and additional amenities were great.

Location, service, and atmosphere were all excellent. In the middle of town with very little traffic noise. Proximity to shopping and dining is a short walk away. The view from the window was amazing. An excellent evening getaway.
