Great fast check in, very clean interior, interior atrium pool and whirl pool, with a bar and dining. This is a gem of hotel, with clean new rooms, views from the room not so good, but just outside are the mountains. Free happy hour and breakfast is included. Business computer area on all floors. Very nice and well priced. Walking...

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and our hotel. We're far enough in downtown for all the convenience but just far enough outside to be away from all the noise. We'll see you during your next trip to Durango. Keith Cressy Evening Manager 970-385-4980

There were several problems with the facility in general and with the room specifically. *Chlorine smell from the pool was so strong that it made my wife sick the first night. We had to open the balcony door in order to get some fresh air. *Microwave didn’t work well. It took 5-6 minutes to heat up a cup of water...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Rio Grande. It was close to all downtown amenities in Durango. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Hotel staff was friendly and there were free drinks on at check-in. The only problem we encountered was there was not enough breakfast to serve the customers with still 1 hour...

I'm so sorry for the shortage in breakfast during your stay. We had an unfortunate delay in shipping during a very busy weekend that forced us to make the best out of what we could get in such short notice. I hope you'll give us another chance the next time you're in Durango Keith Cressy Evening Manager 970-385-4980

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Staff was friendly. Facility clean. At the edge of downtown Durango so able to walk around and enjoy the city in the evening. Only draw back was hearing another couple during the night. Not sure if they were in the hall or the room next door. Nice indoor pool and community hot tub. Decent...

First time staying at this hotel in Durango, Colorado. We chose it as it was close to where friends that we were meeting were staying and there was a restaurant close by that we all wanted to eat at for dinner. The hotel was a good experience. The staff was knowledgeable and professional. My wife especially liked the indoor swimming...

My daughter and I stayed here and had a great weekend. The hotel is in a FANTASTIC location. Walking distance to historic downtown Durango and restaurants. Our room looked out over the Animas and mountainous terrain. The staff were courteous and helpful, the room was immaculate, and very comfy beds. Will stay there again next year.

My wife and I went to the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown. That was great, not so much with hotel. I stay in Drurys a lot and regardless of what is paid there should be high level service and style. Breakfast was terrible, thin watery oatmeal, bag of eggs microwaved isn't my idea of breakfast. Best Western should be high quality, not...

We were very pleased with this hotel. The outside decor fit in to the local a atmosphere. Inside the hotel was nice. The room was clean and relaxing.

At first we thought it was too expensive. But the staff was excellent. Friendly and helpful. Bar was great. Breakfast hot and plentiful. Pool and spa were relaxing and well kept. Had a great sleep in an excellent bed. Would give them a 10 plus
