Well-located, charming hotel.

Charming, authentic, old west hotel with comfortable rooms/beds and amenities. We were lucky to have a large room...noticed some open doors to much smaller rooms, so be careful. Also, be ready to be up at 7:30 each morning because the historic narrow gauge railroad is right outside your door. Convenient, if that’s why you’re there.

Fine traditional old west hotel.

Great late 1800’s hotel located in downtown Durango. It is noisy due to the location & inexpensive windows. Overall, a pleasant stay & experience.
