This hotel is steps to Durango, it's a quite motel-style hotel with some space for cars and gardens, it isnt luxury hotel, but i believe that travelers that use cars or motocycles to up and down colorado want only a clean room a confortable bed and a good breakfast and you can find here!

We were traveling to Durango, Co and needed a room for 2 different nights so AARP Travel suggested The Wapiti Lodge among others. The price was right for this cozy, quiet motel/hotel/lodge. The Lodge is not elegant, more like an cozy older motel/hotel. It could be, if you like walking a lot, within walking distance of downtown and restaurants. Staff... More

I Went to Durango for a family emergency with a room booked for one night and 5 people. We needed to be there for 6 days but didn't always know from one day to the next if we needed more space. Tina and Steve were so helpful in making sure a terrible time was made easier in any way they... More

The furniture is dated and the WiFi veeeery slow. But the rooms were very clean and the Service was very friendly. In addition to the already quite reasonable price for Durango, we received a 10% Military discount. Service gave us great tips for breakfast.

We came to Durango to view the fall colors of Aspen. The WapitiLodge was very comfortable, private and clean. The owners are very accommodating. We so enjoyed our stay that we decided to stay an extra day.Even though they had many reservations to fill, they gave the same room. An added feature is that they delivered the daily local news...

Common now, do you need a room that is Waldorf quality or a room to lay your head, shower and be gone all day. This place is priced right and in the right spot. You could walk to downtown if you wanted to. The host and hostess are very nice, helpful, and informative about Durango. We will definitely stay here... More

The rooms are dated but surprisingly clean. It has everything you need for a comfortable place to stay. The location is great because it is so close to downtown Durango, yet away from the crazy traffic.

Wapiti was not far from the main historic part of town. When we arrived Taylor was very helpful and gave tips on restaurants and places to go with kids. The room had an odd layout ( divided in the middle by cutout wall) but it worked for us. There was a fridge and microwave. It was a pleasant stay and... More
