We were in town after our flight was canceled. We were able to get a reservation at the last minute. The Strater is right downtown and just across the street from the restaurant where we had dinner (Ken & Sue's, which was excellent). The room was comfortable, but not exceptional. It was all about the location for us.

Historic Strater is a wonderful quaint hotel. So much history and beautiful woodwork. It's located on Main Street in Historic Downtown Durango. We were close to shopping, restaurants such as Grass burgers, Steamworks and Ken and Sue's. Additionally, Road trippers is located right across the street. We booked our rafting, jeep ride and train ride through this company. Great place... More

The Strater Hotel is a wonderful trip back in time, thankfully with a bathroom, air conditioning, and a flat screen TV. The common areas of the hotel are lovingly preserved and spacious. There are soft chairs, beautiful woodwork, and a big staircase. The rooms are modern in every way necessary, but retain the aura of the days of the old... More

I loved this place from the moment I walked in. It was the Old West Saloon of my dreams. Pretty Barmaids in period costume. Friendly efficient staff that quickly brought me the perfect cheeseburger. I ate and imagined the old west. A wonderful experience.

After a long drive we decided to stay at the Strater. What jewel. We enjoyed the location, easy walking to many shops and restaurants. We used the private hot tub and loved the idea that we were the only ones there. Be sure to sign the book in your room and read other visitors stories.

The Historic Strater Hotel in Durango is a delightful place to stay. From horse-drawn carriage rides, historic themed rooms, live gunfights in the street, to the lively entertainment in the Diamond Belle Saloon! You will be glad you visited SW Colorado.

This is a classy old hotel that has been renovated properly. I booked 3 rooms for 1 night while traveling with my friends from Scotland. They all enjoyed it. The rooms are all very well appointed with era furniture but still have model, up-to-date conveniences. Having the saloon and bar right in the hotel was the icing on the cake.... More

Stayed one night on our way back home. Awesome hotel to stay it for an old time feel for not much more money than a modern hotel. Rooms were furnished in period style furniture and both the bar and restaurant gave you that same feeling. Even had a vintage steam locomotive come by in the morning.

We just returned from a lovely stay at the Strater Hotel in Durango. First of all - five stars to the staff for friendliness. There wasn’t a place in the hotel where we weren’t greeted with a genuine smile and a kind word - what a treat! The building, of course, is historic and not ultramodern. WiFi, however, worked like...
