“Great Location”
Reviewed June 22, 2007

Best location for the train to Silverton and withing easy walking distance of historic downtown. Room was comfortable and quiet.

Only downside is if you have the first Summer train of the day boarding at 7AM. Office does not open for breakfast until 7AM, so you must make other arrangements.

The Durango Lodge has a good location near the train station in the historic district. Be advised that you will be awakened daily by the train whistle at 6:00AM. We had a small ,but nice room that appeared to have been remodeled. The breakfast fare was ok - bagels, cereal, oatmeal. Hot tub was nice. For the price, it was a good stay. My only complaint would be the staff. The front desk staff appeared to have little desire to speak with guests and was not knowledgeable about the activities of the town.

Enjoyed the Mexican restaurant next door called Gazpacho. Salsa is on the hot side there but we were told they cater to the local's taste.

Enjoyed the walking trail along the river. Great place for bike riding and hiking. Loved visiting Durango.

The best thing to say about the Durango Lodge is that it is a few steps away from the Train Depot. Very convenient to downtown shops and restaurants too. But the rooms are nothing special for the price, cluttered and the air conditioning didn't work. If you want something close downtown I guess this is okay but don't expect to be spending time in the dreary rooms.

I stayed at the Durango Lodge during fourth of July week. I chose this hotel because I was booked on the Independence Day Express, and knew it was the closest to the railroad which got back in the wee hours that next morning. I thought the room was very nice and I really enjoyed my stay there. I would stay at this hotel again. You have access to the best Durango has to offer within walking distance---restaurants, shops,bars--the whole experience. This hotel definitely puts you in the center of the action. Durango is a wonderful town--this was my second trip out from South Carolina.

We chose this property as part of a week-plus driving trip around the country. It was conveniently located in downtown Durango within walking distance to the railroad, shops and restaurants.

The hotel was okay. Our room overlooked the street and the main stairway, so it was very loud well into the night. There were a number of children staying there at the time (the Thomas the Tank railway event was going on) and we could hear them running up and down the halls well until 11 p.m./midnight. We could also hear people yelling on the street. If we had to do it all over again, I would have requested a different room toward the back or overlooking the inner parking lot.

Our room was small (probably because it is an older motor lodge), but clean. There was a nice-sized refrigerator in the room; no bath, just a shower stall. We also liked the fact that it was family owned.

The hotels nicest features are its location and its outdoor pool and enclosed spa (outdoors). The complimentary breakfast was all cold options, but it was free. We opted instead for a local coffee shop (bypass the Starbucks and keep walking, there are excellent local alternatives.

This motel was perfectly located - easy walk to the train station or to downtown shopping and restaurants. It was clean - very cheerful with window boxes and blooming flowers. Would definitely stay here again.

Rooms were clean and the staff were polite including help with 'where to go and what to do'. Good value for money and an excellent location for the main street - a couple of minutes walk.

The breakfast is very basic but did not detract from a positive experience.

The small outdoor pool was closed.

Parking right outside the rooms.

I will stop here again!!!
