A step back in time

The room was just as stated in the description. Our room, The Durango, had a queen and a twin. The dresser had lots of space, and it had a nice sized closet. A coffee bar was set up every morning on every floor! If you stay here, walk around on every floor. Some rooms have plaques giving historical information about people that stayed in the room, like Louis D L'Amour. The people at the front desk had a lot of recommendations and information. Wonderful restaurants with walking distance.

Wonderful service

Only stayed one night but enjoyed the front desk service. Room large and comfortable but could not experience the Train due to the forest fire north of town. I would recommend a room in the back and on an upper floor

Great experience at the Strater

This old hotel is in great condition & the staff truly understands hospitality. Great location to walk Durango’s downtown with its many shops and restaurants. We wish we were staying longer. Durango is a great place to visit.

This is a tough hotel stay to review The power was out most of the first night of our stay but did come back on before dark cable and WiFi came back up later the next day not the hotels fault but still not a good way to start a stay. We had a second floor room in the rear with a nice view. Small 1940's stay bathroom was OK nice selection of bath items but no box of tissues really Motel 6 can manage a box of tissues in the bathroom but a $200 a night hotel can't mange it? Room has nice vintage bed set and was very clean

Public arears of the hotel are very nice with lots of wood work and period fireplaces with many old nicknacks on display staff was young friendly but not all that well trained. We were part of a group and did the breakfast bar as part of our stay this was the worst part of our stay cold eggs no bowls or milk OJ ran out etc. only one staff member working the room

Over all I liked the hotel but our stay here was less than 4 star.

nice historic hotel

This hotel is not a highly renovated, luxury or boutique hotel. It is clean and nice. The service staff is fantastic. I will say the rooms are a little small and the bathrooms are really small. If you are looking for luxury and room, it's not for you. If you are looking for more of an authentic feel with a great location, stay here. The location is perfect. We really enjoyed the hotel restaurant for breakfast both days we were there. My only real complaint is that the room was a little warm at night, but the problem was easily solved by cracking the window--perfect bc it was early summer and there is no noise outside like in a larger city. Although the parking next to the hotel always seemed full, the other option was about a 3 minute walk. I would stay here again and recommend it for friends.
