This is the second time that I have stayed at the Strater. Very unique and priced right. I loved the live music in the lounge and the food was fantastic!

The hotel was amazing. Staff was friendly. It was our anniversary and they gave us drink coupons and there were chocolates in the room.

Great location for seeing downtown. Noisy in the morning, older historic building with train station next door.

Nice stay at older historic hotel.

The rooms were clean, comfortable, even though they were a little cozy. They were quiet, as Durango seems to roll up the sidewalk after 8 pm 😐. But the rooms as old (after all the hotel was built in 1880), so don’t even think about plugging in anything that sucks up wattage (the hotel staff told me stories about resetting breakers). Bottom line: a nice but old historic hotel with a friendly staff and an old historic appeal.

Unexpected Pleasure

Pros: The hotel is old but is in AWESOME shape. Doesn't feel like an old hotel.
Cons: Nothing, they did a wonderful job either restoring it or keeping it up for so many years.
Location: We only had one night. but there are plenty of great places to eat and shops to see. The hotel has a dinner theater which I wish we could have seen.
Unfortunately we only stayed one night, The hotel is old, but didn't feel old or smelly. It had all the charm of an old hotel with out the musty broken down feel of many old hotels. Look forward to coming back.

Very Nice

Overall a wonderful place to stay. Our only complaint is that on a cold winter evening, rooms on fourth floor and mediocre water pressure and the water didn't get all that hot. Wonderful bar!
