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

Enjoyed our stay, pet friendly and comfortable. Great dog park within walking distance and Riverwalk close by. Nice picnic area, complete with BBQ grill. Kitchenette included utensils, cookware and dishware, very convenient and clean. Downtown Durango was 5 minutes from Wapiti Lodge. Staff was friendly and helped with area questions.

Pros: Beds were comfortable, room was clean. Newspaper every morning was a nice touch. Cons:people were smoking right outside our room frequently. The pool is almost 4 miles away, which is over a 10 minute drive. When I got there with my kids, we found out it was closed to kids on Friday. This was not evident on the website.

This place is OK. Not great. Not poor. Some things are a little wonky - such as the ceiling fan that wobbled and squeaked. But everything works and the room was clean and quiet. There is a coffee maker in the room to help you get started in the morning, as well as a TV and remote. Found this hotel... More

Great location, excellent service, friendly advice, and it's pet friendly!! Plenty of storage and comfortable beds -- perfect for spending a night, a long weekend or a week in beautiful Durango! Nice grassy area for dogs and swings for kids. The kitchenette area has a 12 cup coffee pot - what a luxury!! The mini frig is large, but there... More
