Chef and host Eamonn O'Hara, prepares amazing meals, serves them with friendliness, and does a terrific job as host. Our room was comfortable, quiet and clean, and we would stay again. The dinner and breakfast were outstanding.

this hotel is south of Telluride. It offers a great value and the restaurant is very nice. The overall all feel is rustic, but it is a clean, simple hotel in a beautiful part of the states. There is a breakfast that is included and you have a hot tub on property as well.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay on your way into southern Colorado, or a destination in itself, the Rico Hotel offers reasonable room rates with the added bonus of exceptional food. For less than $80, I was able to get a comfortable room which included a gourmet breakfast. The restaurant offers amazing cuisine, it is worth coming here as a food destination! The chef prepared a great vegetarian option for the veg heads in our party, and accommodated the vegetarians for breakfast also. This hotel provides travelers with excellent value.

When I booked my reservations, I searched Durango, Co. This Hotel of course came up. When we arrived in Durango, I called OnStar for directions to the hotel, and was told that the hotel was 80 miles one way from Durango. This was NOT acceptable because we were riding the train in Durango early the next morning, and this would have meant that we would have had to travel an extra 320 miles to and from this hotel, as we had booked for two nights. The manager said other people have complained about this same matter. This hotel SHOULD NOT be listed in the Durango, Co. area. It was hard to find a hotel in Durango at such a late time in the evening. This was not a good xperience, but it did work out. I could NOT rate the hotel, as we did not stay there, due to the location.

Telluride is so expensive and very noisy due to all of the idiots who claim they are going to ski but actually just want to drink. The Rico Hotel, on the other hand, is a nice, quiet place to rest after a hard day of real skiing. If your idea of skiing is to ski really hard all day, then rest all night to ski again the next day, then this is the place for you. The rates are great, they have breakfast in the morning and the beds are comfy. The restaurant is pretty good too.
