Recent guest reviews

My husband and I had a wonderful time. Very clean rooms great food and gorgeous views.

Staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was great.

The hotel is situated just outside of Durango, just 2 minutes or so. The views are fantastic.

Cute location by the mountain but off the main road Railroad runs behind the property but isn't a noisy nuisance Breakfast included Plenty of room in our clean multi level room Fireplace in our room and wood available for purchase at the front desk Kid's playground on the property

We enjoyed our stay at the Iron Horse. It was very clean and the breakfast was adequate.

In middle of much needed renovation. A ways out of town which means more driving, but was also quiet for sleeping. New mattresses were comfy and breakfast was pleasant.

Very friendly staff upon arrival, clean room, heated outdoor pool. I will definitely come here again.

Everything about our stay was perfect. Would definitely stay here again!

the hotel entrance was hard to find. nice room,good location.

Love the upstairs/downstairs set up and great mountain views. The staff went out of their way to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable.

this hotel was nice...asked the guy at the front desk for burger recommendation....and the GRASS FED (?) place he recommended was very good. the room had kind of a smell to it, not stinky, just different...plenty of room.....1 bedroom upstairs and 1 down (tv in both)....it was clean :) they have a pool and a good breakfast...waffles!! This is not walking distance to downtown, but still not far either

Hotel was nice and felt like a cabin. The owner was friendly. It had an awesome view and seeing the train pass by was a great feature.

The Iron Horse Inn, despite being rated as a two star hotel, deserves some credit. The room was larger than expected and very clean. The hotel is situated along the Silverton Durango train tracks but the train does not pass during normal sleeping hours and the view of the valley beyond the tracks is stunning.

Great place all around! My daughters and I were very comfortable and happy with everything.

The location is fantastic, rooms are clean and we loved the loft set up. It was nice to be bit out of town and yet close enough to get there easy enough.

My motorcycle friends and I enjoyed our stay and we will return ! Thanks for everything.

Lean room decent continental breakfast. Mattress was to hard. The stay overall was good. Dog friendly.

Decor was dated, but was comfortable. Kid loved the Durango to Silverton train passing by right outside our room.

The shower was dirty, other than that a great value.

My friend and I were not expecting much but were pleasantly surprised given the height of the travel season and the price of the room. The room (really, a two-level suite) was clean with what looked to be newer carpet. The bathroom was a bit worn but was clean. There were no funny smells, which is the biggest red flag for me. The linens were new - no funky old bedspread - and the beds were comfortable. It's a bit out of the way, but there's a streetcar/shuttle that stops regularly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
