This is the third year my husband and I have stayed at the Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn in Durango, Colorado. It is quite comfortable. The staff--from the front desk, to the cleaning crew, to the trash guy--are all very friendly and want to do whatever you need to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel cannot be seen from...

I recommend this BW to those visiting Durango -- a very good place. It is only a couple blocks to downtown and the train station. The Staff were very friendly and I will definitely stay here again, the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great. I've stayed in several places in durango and this was the best.

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.
