Stay in room 218. Spacious. Two cable tvs one for the kiddos and one for us. A great place at a great price.

We arrived in Durango from Dallas, Texas sometime after 3 am and we were delighted to have someone greet us at the front desk. He was very nice and surprisingly alert and talkative considering the early hour. We were happy to see that our room was EXACTLY like the picture we viewed online, and the view out the window was even better. The Pool and spa were top notch and the staff was very friendly. I would really love to come out here in the Summer and play the golf course and fly fish the Animas and Lake Haviland. Overall, we had a wonderful time here at Tamarron and we were very happy with the experience. See ya in the summer!

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing the cliffs to the east, great views.

We decided to try something different this year for the holidays. The Tamarron Resort was recommended to us by some friends. We had a great time! The Resort was clean, the staff was very friendly, and the price was excellent. The kids loved the pool, my husband and I enjoyed the hot tub and sauna. This area is so beautiful that we are planning to make another trip here in the summer.

This hotel is a great place to stay if you are just looking for somewhere to stay so you can go skiing or snowboarding. It was fairly clean and the staff was nice. The mountain was about 10 minutes away and downtown area about 30 minutes. I would recommend to anyone who wanted a decent place to stay at a good rate.

My wife is originally from Durango so each year around Christmas we retire to the mountains with our children to enjoy a couple weeks of the great outdoors. We had stayed at this resort (if you can call it that) three years earlier for a couple days out of convenience so when when my brother in law told me they had rented a unit we decided to do the same. I hate to end a good year on a bad note.

We called the resort and rented unit 868/869 which was reported by Heather their vacation rentals manager as the best unit they had @ $2800.00 for 10 days. They originally wanted more than $4000.00. If I had paid that I'd likely be at the local pharmacy begging for some Prozac or anything that might make this whole experience go away. We rented the larger unit so we could host our family for a Christmas Dinner. Let me detail our issues with the unit.

I would describe the beds as soft concrete. My wife and I have spent the last four nights on the two couches in the very small living room. The locks do not work on the bathrooms. The master bedroom located 5 feet from the kitchen doesn't even have a lock on the door so forget the romance. The oven is broken (so forget the family meal), no fireplace in the mountains, the grill on the porch doesn't work, the rooms have very old 19 inch TV's lesser than what you would expect at Motel 6. The toilet float keeps sticking in the upstairs bathroom and the thermostat doesn't work properly and is coming off the wall. I could keep going but why its very depressing.

Now lets discuss the lodge. The nice restaurant they had here closed down 3 years ago along with an entire wing of this aging resort that is now become abandoned and fit for filming a horror story. The only restaurant here is a very small lounge called Cuckoos which is located 10 feet from the front desk and serves crappy breakfast with no eggs on the menu. This is also their lame idea of a bar which I couldn't help but visit to try and forget about the room. Here I dropped $250.00 buying my brother and law and several Tamarron employees who were sitting at the bar cocktails. Heck its not their fault this lodge has become so dilapidated.

Almost done- Heather the Vacation Rental Manager charged our card $1400.00 for the deposit several weeks ago to save the unit. She never sent us any policies or lease documents to sign. When we checked in on December 26 we told the front desk we were unhappy with the unit and wanted to speak with the manager. He walked into Cuckoos to speak with Heather then came back and told us she had no other units and that she would speak with us about it in the morning. I walked around the corner and seen her seated at a table where people were drinking. Come on Heather give us 5 minutes its our family vacation. The next morning without a phone call or further discussion AND KNOWING WE WANTED TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE she charged our card the remaining $1400.00. Here we are 5 days later and we still haven't checked in or signed any documentation. The only communication we have had with her was a call to inform us the fire alarm had malfunctioned and we must vacate the unit until maintenance could get it fixed. That took all day Wednesday and we weren't allowed back in the unit until 4pm that day. Oh well at least the wife enjoyed shopping in Durango all day.

Important lesson here is don't waste any of your bottom line on this dump as there are many other accommodations around Durango much more suited to your needs.

Yes although as some reviews have said the front desk was not staffed as it is more of a condo rental place it did have excellent service once they showed up. It was a homey comfortable place to stay. The restaurant that just opened will get better with time. With all the beauty surrounding you how can you complain. I would stay here again just do not expect them to be at your beckon call. The pool, weight room, and spa facilities were wonderful as well. The personal were all very friendly.

The hotel was quite dated, with old carpet and furnishings in dire need of an update. Rates were too high for the low end room, and the check-in experience was laughable with the young woman completing a personal call (for at least 5 minutes) before acknowledging our presence. Very weak. The hotel is 20 minutes out of Durango...be forewarned.
