On a long road trip to many of the National Parks, etc in Utah, Colorado, Nevada and Arizona, we stayed 2 nights in Durango. Great will town, great hotel and a great train ride to Silverton. The hotel was located near everything, and was very comfortable. The bartender was really efficient and friendly, as were the ladies at breakfast.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 March 2017 via mobile

We loved this hotel. The rooms were nice and clean, the staff went above and beyond, and the location could not be closer to main street. The renovations were not too annoying, and I assume they will be done soon. We intend to stay here every time we visit Durango.

Decided to stop here since we had tickets for the Durango and Silverton Railway - its right next door. The hotel was easy to find and had plenty of parking. The room was large and had a good view of the river from the balcony. Breakfast was simple but with so many good breakfast [and dinner] places within 5 minutes...

Unless you're one of the first 10 guests to arrive and you don't leave all night, you'll have to park on the city streets blocks away from the hotel. Aside from that major inconvenience, the rest of the stay was adequate but not worth the inconvenience.

The staff was extremely friendly. The girls serving breakfast were most helpful in local attractions and suggestions. Mitch was great at check-in. Even the maid was friendly and helpful during my stay. All-in-all, a great time!!

We spent 2 nights here and would definitely stay again if we come back to Durango. The room was very clean and the location is convenient to the train depot and downtown. Everything is within walking distance and the hotel will allow you to leave your car there so you don't have to pay the parking fee to ride the...

Rarely do you find a hotel that actually delivers on an experience that they promise will be "just like home". The BW plus Rio Grande does just that. The people are friendly and accommodating, the property is always clean and professionally run. Overall-a great stay every time!!!!

On a motorcycle trip thru CO and stopped for 2 nights to avoid snow. The hot tub was a welcome site. Rooms were clean and staff very accommodating. Free drinks each night and full breakfast in the morning. Location is perfect, just a couple blocks from downtown, shopping and restaurants. Would stay again and recommend to anyone in the area....

Loved the location as it was within walking distance of the downtown area and the Durango train depot. Even in the midst of remodeling the hotel was clean. The breakfast was great with a great variety of items to choose from.
