Me and my wife try to visit once a year in Durango. Of the 6 years we've been doing this, we have stayed 5 times at the Best Western Rio Grande. We made the mistake last year of staying elsewhere for the sake of value. We love the location, the rooms, the pool and breakfast. The pool does get a...

This location was walking distance to most downtown activities: Restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. so that was a huge plus! If skiing is more important, you should stay at the resort. Hotel is older but staff service was great! All in all a good value!

Family stayed due to the fact that it appeared to be walking distance to the Durango Train Ride. Once arrived, it was! Indoor swimming pool helped our family along with the hospitality hour. Rooms were clean and kept us warm even with 34 F weather. View of the river was nice.

We started skiing at the Durango Mountain Resort-Purgatory about ten years ago. We found the Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn by accident. What a blessing of an accident. The pricing is fair and the staff is very friendly and helpful. There is an indoor pool and hot tube. The free breakfast is good and gets you ready for the...

This was a great place to crash in Durango. 5 minute walk to train depot. The indoor pool was the perfect temp. Breakfast was nothing special but decent. Bed was comfortable. Flatscreen tv was nice. Cable service and wifi was flawless.

This is our 2nd year! We love the staff and the hotel. This year out flight from Houston was cancelled so we ended up driving 18 hours and we had booked 6 days but since we spent an entire day driving and didn't make the 1st night stay they didn't charge us. We really appreciated it especially after the nightmare...

The hotel was so clean and the staff is so friendly it was a great overall experience. The hotel is an easy walk to downtown Durango and all its attractions. It is very close to the narrow gauge railroad station
