I am a mother of two Teens travelling through Durango, CO. Decided to make a stop for the night. Iron Horse took about 3 minutes to book online. When we arrived, we were met by Jupiter, the very friendly dog in the lobby area, and an equally friendly gentleman at the front desk. He knew exactly who I was even... More

Friendly staff. Clean rooms. We had 5 people and it was a tight fit, but do-able with the rollaway. I would stay there again. The website didn't advertise it, but there is a breakfast available. It was the standard breakfast.

We were told this was slow season, but there were plenty of guests! North of Durango, but the trolley stops right in front so if you don't have a car, town is still accessible. all rooms have a bonus loft with full queen bed, so great for families

The staff was very friendly and the accommodations were very nice and comfortable. I liked that the second bed was on the loft, which provided a little more privacy for my friend and me. The location was just a bit removed others right in town but it was just fine. Breakfast was very nice too. I would definitely go back... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It has great rooms and right on the train tracks so twice a day if you are at the hotel you can see the train going from your room. Kids were really excited. It is not a fancy property or newer hotel. If you are ok with that its a simple clean place to... More

The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and very comfortable. The train came right by and the view of the mountain was beautiful. The wifi was a little weak, but other than that, we would not have changed a thing.

We stayed here for a night en route to Cortez. Cute little Inn. A bit outdated but very spacious. Service was great and if you are up early enough you can catch the steam train going by! Decent breakfast is uncluded..enough to get your day started. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great spacious rooms with a real fireplace you can't beat that. Just outside downtown away from the noise. Watching the train come by in the mornings was so cool. The breakfast could have had more options but it had all your basics of coffee juice cereals and other breakfast pastries.

Thank savannah s
