Not sure how to review the Iron Horse. To start with the positives : we liked the two floor cabins and the pool. Both handy if you have a family. The breakfast was okay and there are washing machines available. The view out the back is nice. Less positive, the rooms are a bit dark and the whole place needs... More

The room was clean and the loft was a nice addition, however we had to set the fan up to circulate the cool main level air so the loft wasn't so warm. We didn't spent much time there, and didn't have time to swim, but for what we needed it for - just sleeping - it worked just fine.

We loved being outside of Durango and able to enjoy the mountains, as well as see the trains pass. Worth the extra few dollars to be track side as we enjoyed the picnic tables and less traffic on that side of building. Breakfast had great, healthy options and was the cleanest we have ever experienced in this type of setting.... More

We stayed one night at the Iron Horse and got the last room there. Shelton and the other young man at the desk couldn't have been nicer to us. We ended up leaving an article of clothing there and Shelton called us and asked what we would like to do. My husband asked if they would send it. Sheldon called... More

We were very impressed by out stay. Perfect for our family of 4. Kids stayed upstairs and my husband and I down. Yummy breakfast every morning and perfect area for kids to play including a pool, playscape, and area for bike/scooter riding. Also, kids can watch the Durango/Silverton train go by. I was impressed by how clean things were even... More

My family and I had a great time at the Iron Horse Inn! Great property, friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds and the best part watching the train go by right from your bed or open the door and wave to the passengers. Pool was perfect and playground was a nice addition. Thank you!!

I love staying away from the hustle and bustle of town & this was a perfect little place to escape that! Plus it has better scenery and it was so fun for our kids too! They loved the upstairs loft, train, playground and pool! Although it is dated, it had everything we needed and was just plain cozy!
