The Iron Horse is a classic motel with some twists. The rooms are two-level, with a queen bed on the entry level and a second queen bed in a loft. Our room had a refrigerator but no microwave or coffee maker. There is a wood-burning fireplace, but given the state of the carpet I don't think I'd look at this...

We have stayed here a few times to visit our daughter that goes to Fort Lewis. Its a little run down but you can't beat the price! It is clean. It's very dog friendly! There is a lot of room in the unit with a loft bedroom in addition to the main floor bed. Friendly staff -- Anna is awesome!

The people working there were professional and very friendly. The rooms are large and have very nice views. If you are going snowboarding this is a good place to stay. It is outside of town closer to the mountains, so you can avoid the city in the am. Also you have all the the space in the world for your...

We upgraded to track side and the view was really nice. There are two rooms, but no real privacy as the upstairs is more of a loft. This is not a fancy hotel, you will have to bring your own blow dryer and coffee maker. Also, there is no sofa, just a small table and chairs. The first room we...

My family recently stayed for one night (New Years Eve). It was a last minute trip and we was excited to find a great rate at a property so close to Pergatory that had spacious rooms and a wood burning fireplace. I was extremely disappointed with our selection... Very run down, carpet was dirty, and the smell of smoke was...

Comfortable and spacious, 2nd bed in upstairs loft provided space and a little privacy, so we did not feel cramped. Good location at edge of town, giving access to mountains and scenery as well as easy access to town and restaurants.

This place was really nice and clean. I loved the area and how great the service was and always helpful. I would recommend it and I will be back to that place again. My family liked it and enjoyed the stay.

My family recently stayed with Iron Horse Inn for 5 days in December. It has a great location, decently sized rooms, and a good breakfast room. The front desk manager might be the friendliest, nicest woman I have ever met in my life; she made any of the deficiencies of the lodging fade away. My complaints are minor: it is...

Very disappointing considering the good reviews. We booked this last December and had our reservation cancelled by the hotel the week before arrival because they were "renovating ". If this is renovated I would hate to see it before. The place is tired and needs work. Our beds were like sleeping on a granite slab. Place is noisy and their...

While the rooms could use some updating, it was overshadowed by the affordability, location, and incredible hospitality. We took my 5yr old to Durango for The Polar Express. The staff could not have been kinder and truly went out of their way to make our stay as wonderful as possible. I have already decided we will be making another trip...

“We reserved a room facing the railroad and a gorgeous valley view. This is something we enjoyed, but you must be advised that the train is fairly close to the room, and it sounds its horn as it chugs past the hotel at night. The website description is forthcoming about this information, but I just wanted to mention it again. ”
