If you are looking for a place to crash and grab a quick breakfast; before you head out and see the sights in and around Durango, then this place works well. Walking distance to the town and attractions is a big plus. Visited with friends we hadn't seen in a while, and we had kids of different ages. Little kids... More

This hotel is close to the Durango Silverton train station and within walking distance of a downtown area. The staff is extremely accommodating and even let us leave a large cooler and a provision box in their office when we were overnight in Silverton. We had two different rooms while we were there, and both were roomy and comfortable. Our... More

This is a good place to stay for access to the train and walking distance to store and restaurants. Breakfast needs an upgrade (more variety of hot items). Nice pool for kids and cocktail hour was decent.

Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn is an excellent place to stay in Durango. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Best of all, it is a very short, easy walk to the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Train station. Staff is friendly and helpful. No problems with parking. The kids will love the indoor pool.

The staff were friendly and accomadating. The building is close to shopping and the Silverton Durango train. The rooms are spacious clean, and the beds are comfortable. We were not sure what to expect from the hotels on our trip. The staff and the rooms were far above our expectations. Erika, Jeff M., Keith, and David were very accomadating and... More

Close to everything downtown. Nice whirlpool and pool. The room was more like a suite older but very comfortable. Comes with breakfast and free drinks at happy hour. Very nice staff. This is my second stay in a month, so yes I liked it!

Have stayed at Rio Grande Inn multiple times. Excellent service, room quality and the location cannot be beat. Rooms with a balcony are especially enjoyable for morning coffee or to watch the river. Have brought friends here and they feel the same.

It's centrally located yet quiet and comfortable. It doesn't do food (except a fair breakfast) but the nearest place to eat is 100 ft away. The rooms are clean and comfortable, ours was huge with a mini decking. It gives two complimentary cocktails per person per night (or it did for us). And there's a large indoor pool and hot... More

As others have commented, it is a little pricey, but staying here during summer tourist season, that's to be expected. The 3-floor hotel is a short walk to the D&S railroad and other shops & restaurants. Anyway, we had a very comfortable stay in a clean and pleasant facility. Small lobby w helpful, friendly staff. Free, hot breakfast offerings were... More

The consensus on this hotel is great location, which I agree with. I don't think this merits the price of over $200. The room is average and amenities are OK. The free happy hour was good but being next to the indoor pool, it smelled of chlorine. The bed was probably the best thing about the room and was extremely... More
