We were a group of eight guys who rolled into town for a multi-day enduro ride through the San Juan Mountains so stayed here at the beginning and the end of our trip. We experienced fantastic service by every single member of the staff and an awesome breakfast every morning to top it off! They were even nice enough to... More

When we arrived we had a bottle of champagne and wonderful homemade specialty bread, fabulous!! The next morning I was greeted with Happy Birthday from all the staff. Breakfast was fabulous but the service was the... More

I planned my own 50th birthday trip with 7 very good friends of mine last week. I started planning this about 5 months ago and had no idea where to stay in Durango as this was the start and stop location on our 4 night trip. This placed was recommended to me by the guy who owned Adventure Motorsports -... More

We stayed at The Rochester three years ago and had a great time. Our second visit was just as nice with awesome staff and a timeless old building made very comfortable and cool. Fresh cooked breakfast and a beautiful outdoor place to sit under giant mature trees.

Excellent rooms, you would feel being at home, pleasant. Very clean. Loved the kitchen. Great organic breakfast! The free parking is a great relief. Excellent customer service, loved the historical information of the hotel/inn plus the city/town. It is a bit pricey.

I had made reservations on January 18, 2016 for a one night stay six months later on July 20, 2016. The reservations were for a ground floor room in the Leland House which is across the street from the main Rochester Hotel.

I stayed two nights for business in an upstairs King room. Lots of space, comfortable bed, and a to die for breakfast. The building itself is attractive with a pleasant courtyard. The movie posters are fun. The front desk staff and the breakfast crew simply could not have been nicer. I would return in a heartbeat. Thanks for a nice... More

I have stayed in two other Durango hotels, and this is my favorite so far! Cute inside and out. Their breakfast is really good. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Rooms have nice decor. I loved sitting outside for breakfast or later in the day in the courtyard under the big maple tree. Very pleased and hope to return!
