I was traveling solo on a quick get-away. Booked at Iron Horse Inn and it was better than expected. Room was clean, neat and quiet. Staff was friendly. Actually, it was two beds, one down and one up with kitchen. Nice view and easy access to Durango or the other way to Silverton.

I have stayed here 3-4 times over 15 years. The set up with the loft makes for a large living area. The location is quiet and on the very N end of town, where the Durango shuttle terminates so there is no need to drive (shuttle ends at 7 PM though). The breakfast is surprising good and the breakfast area... More

This was a nice place to stay as a base for a trip ont he Silverton/Durango railway as part of our visit to Utah and Colorado. The Inn is a bit of a way out of town but there is a quaint regular trolley bus service. Breakfast was nice and the staff in reception were lovely.

Continuing our trip through Colorado I had made a reservation at Iron Horse Inn. Driving into Durango we found it very busy. Iron Horse Inn is on the outskirts of town but close enough to take advantage of the "city." Our room was on the track side which meant we were able to see the steam train that travels from... More

Art first we found this place huge and thought it would be noisy but then we got to our room and we're lucky enough to be facing the tracks of the Durango-Silverton steam train. Train tracks can be good if it's 1890's coal fired steam locomotive with vintage cars. We delighted in taking pictures of people talking pictures of us.... More

The place is supposedly remodeled - filthy chairs, dirty carpeting and bathroom floors. No water in the bathroom sink (only a trickle), toilet seat broken, curtain did not cover window (put in too small a rod), no place to hang clothes (or hangers) so asked for iron and ironing board. The ironing board was so filthy that I would not... More

In brief, nice place. Little tired around the edges but would stay here again. Clean comfy bed, interesting 2 story layout. Nice heated pool. Out of town so need car to get to town to eat out. Steam trains go past about 8.30 & back again about 6ish. Seems to vary between one & two trains each way. Great to... More

I have to say that the only "not that positive" thing about this place is that is not close enough to the town center. But there is a handy free bus stopping right in front of the office bringing you into the town center. Staff is friendly. There is a handy laundry room (only until 9pm). Room spacious snd clean....

I love the surroundings of this hotel. However, sleeping in the loft was very warm w/no air conditioning and the provided fan was very noisy. The neighbors were also very loud. Lots of banging. My father took a shower only to find that there was no hair dryer to dry his hair. The coffee was terrible-like drinking water and the... More

We arrived very late (2:30am) We were helped right away, with a friendly smile. The room was comfortable, with thick warm towels. The room was clean and the beds were cozy. The staff was helpful when we decided to stay another night, and made accommodations for us. The location next to the Durango / Silverton train tracks was what made... More
