Affordable • Family Friendly Motel • Great Location!
Iron Horse Inn – Durango, Colorado
T he Iron Horse Inn is an affordable and family-friendly motel located off the scenic Million Dollar Highway, on the north end of Durango. Nestled in the beautiful Animas Valley, between the steep cliffs of Missionary Ridge, the clear waters of the Animas River, and the red rocks of Animas Mountain, we provide a quiet and relaxing stay for the outdoor adventurer, traveling businessmen, or any family outing alike.
Our motel location puts us in close proximity to Fort Lewis College, The Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Dalton Ranch Golf Club, Trimble Hot Springs, and we are just 30 minutes from the ski slopes at Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort. Other local attractions include Mesa Verde National Park, white water rafting, and countless opportunities for outdoor expeditions and downtown adventures. The Main Avenue Trolley, a free service of Durango, provides a convenient and relaxing ride directly from our motel to historic downtown Durango every twenty minutes and stops at designated areas along Durango’s Main Avenue throughout the ride.
The Iron Horse Inn also welcomes you to swim in our new outdoor heated pool and let your little ones play in our expansive kiddie pool. Watch the historic train pass by in the beautiful Animas Valley, or have a family cookout in our outdoor party tent. Take a walk with the kids or run the dogs on the 7+ acres of open space that we have surrounding the Iron Horse Inn. Play a game of Air Hockey or other arcade games in our game room while doing a quick load of laundry.
In the morning, enjoy our free continental breakfast as you take in the picturesque scenery, wildlife, and breathe the crisp air of the San Juan Mountains. All of our motel rooms at the Iron Horse Inn are Bi-Level suites, which provides for a semi-private sleeping area and much more space than the average hotel room.

We stayed at the Iron Horse Inn and loved it. Great people and service all at a very good price. Our room was new and looked great, the kids realy enjoyed the pool as well. Very family friendly. – Randy
We have 6 kids and needed 2 rooms. The front office staff was very helpful in getting rooms booked together and making us feel welcome. This place is a great value. The rooms were CLEAN. It’s a great place to stay in Durango if you are riding the Train.
