“Great Location, Needs lots of updating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

First, the view was fantastic! Plus in the morning you got to see the Steam Train go right by the parking lot. That was excellent.

The unit was a two story unit, not bad but could be updated.

The breakfast was hot, but served in a strange looking room.

There seemed to be a lot of the units that were rented on a long term basis and they looked run down.

Room Tip: Get a room with a mountain view and a view of the steam train.

Excellent value for the amount of space. Very workable for 3-4 people or small family due to the 2nd story. Has a breakfast, game room, laundry. But the best part is the location right outside town that is quiet, peaceful and has a excellent view, surrounded by mountains.

After a wayward GPS took us off track, we arrived in Durango 2 hours later than planned and having come from a harrowing trip over the "Million Dollar Highway" at midnight, I grabbed the first place I saw to stay the night. It turned out to be the Iron Horse Inn. They charged me $69 (plus tax) for a room with two queen beds (one upstairs in a loft), a fireplace, a fridge and microwave. For the price, the room was decent. It was a clean place to sleep and shower, which is all I was interested in at that point. The mattress looked new (I checked it for evidence of bedbugs) and was comfortable. Pillows and linens were nice. I would think with a bit of updating, this place could be really nice. It could use some new carpet, Wasn't too sure about the "guard dogs" who barked/growled at me as I entered the office, but it was cute how they patrolled the place with their little flashlight collars. They went into my room when I left the door open for a minute, snooped around and then left. Funny.

There were several lightbulb a burnt out when we arrived. The entrance is very cumbersome and difficult to get in and out of. I enjoyed the dual story option but the rooms were seriously lacking outlets. The shower head was so low I had to do a squat to get my hair wet. Overall it's would be a nicer place if it had better management.

Older, but clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us. Cell service was minimal, but the Wi-Fi worked great. Would have liked to have a coffee pot and an iron in the room.

Older hotel with potential. Owners are working to update. They were extremely nice and accommodating. They responded to all my requests promptly.
I had memories of this hotel from many years ago when it was much newer. It used to be configured with a livingroom on the ground floor and bedroom upstairs. I prefer the old configuration. Perhaps they still have some like this.
