Great place to visit. Hotel great location. Walking distance to many things.

Hotel was great. The staff very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were very clean. They have been updated in the past few years. The location is great. Walking distance to many activities, shops and restaurants. Happy hour in the evenings and a nice breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend the hotel. We have family here and do visit often and when we stay in a hotel we stay here. If you like biking and hiking this is the place. Fishing is in town or a short drive to different areas. Mesa Verde close by as well as a train ride to Silverton. You could easily spend a couple weeks here.

Excellent

Only one night but had everything that we needed. The room was clean and well appointed, convenient to the parking area. Did not use the pool-hot tub, but it looked good. The breakfast selection was very good, much better than so many other places that offer you a "breakfast" of dough and weak coffee. This one has everything you could want. We did miss the cocktail hour as we checked in late. Will have to return another time for that. A great value with all of the amenities. Very close to the train depot too if you are in Durango for that.

Very friendly and easy place to get to. Fun to hear trains

From the yummy breakfast to time to hit the hay, it is a warm, friendly, quiet place to spend the week in Durango. So close and easy walk to town shops and restaurants. Stayed at Rio Grande last year and came back for a reason......I get to Durango each year and have for many years.....friends there Other than a membership at Wyndum (formally Fairfield) which I have had, the Rio Grande is the best choice. Thank you for your interest in feedback for the hotels in Colo.

Friggen loud.

Took an outside room to avoid the inside pool noise, and boy was it loud inside. The room we had on the outside was ok at best. There had to be at least five teenagers upstairs jumping and running around till midnite. Had to have the fan on and a pillow over my head. Breakfast was pretty good, only it was near the screaming brat pool. Would not go back, stay in pagosa springs at the hot springs.
