“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

An amazing place found by chance. Near to the end of a three week trip we stayed for 3 nights. We found the staff polite, friendly and helpful. Great location - not far from train station and downtown Durango so could park car and walk everywhere. Rooms had view of the car park but had reasonable rates. Did not have time to use pool. Breakfast adequate. Loved it.

stayed here during our summer road trip. Small quaint motel with family run feel. Reasonable rates for the quality. Very clean and everything worked. Small parking lot but still found a spot during busy season. Wish we could have stayed longer. Loved it.

Room Tip: Try to get room with balcony!

Half way through a 3 week road trip we stopped off in Durango for a few days off. I’m so glad we chose to stay here. It’s nothing too fancy, but I also think their website undersells it a bit. The rooms might be of average size (with views of the car park), but they are immaculately kept and the complimentary toiletries were actually nice enough that you wanted to use them. It's a small thing, but an effort that many places wouldn't bother with. The hot tub was hot and the pool was beautiful and refreshingly cool for a change. It’s located near the train station so you’re immersed in the sound of the steam train a couple of times a day which gives it a bit of added ambiance. Hassle free and relaxing. And it’s in Durango. You cant go wrong.

The Durango Lodge is amazing! After a not so good stay in another town, we arrived at the Durango Lodge to check in. Our reservation was ready; the person at the desk was so nice and friendly...the room was wonderful!
We had a king room, balcony over looking the street and some of downtown, I could have stayed there forever!!
We could tell right away it was worth every penny!!
Make sure if you destination is Durango, Colorado; the Durango Lodge is on your list...make your reservations the rooms go quickly!! You can sit on the balcony and listen to the train whistle, then walk down a few blocks at eat at Francisco's.....We are going back!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms with the balconies.....amazing

Smelly, dirty, and no really good parking. If its for just a night, well, OK, but if you plan on staying, look further. We were advised it was a good place...not good advice. Maybe we were expecting something better but this is not our idea of great! The only good thing is it is near the narrow gauge train and close to town.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

Located right smack downtown, the Durango Lodge, although dated and showing it's age, is the spot to stay. Park your car and never touch it again while you are checked in. Our first room really had a foul odor and the desk clerk suggested immediately moving us to another room which, although near the first room, was odor free and noticeably cooler. Good move there.
There is a pool and a hot tub on site although we didn't feel the urge to use it.
This property is overdue for a make over and hopefully they won't raise rates if that happens as it is still relatively affordable to stay here. Recommended.

Room Tip: Don't get the corner room above the office...it stinks!

A great central location for the lovely town of Durango. Its location does mean its not always quiet, the trains can be heard etc which was fine for me but some may not like that. Nice pool and I had no problem with Wi-Fi or TV. The breakfast range was limited.
