We arrived a bit late and the staff offered to help us grab our gear and relax. This hotel is a covered Victorian home with a beautiful courtyard. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is home made and delicious . Look no further if you want an authentic stay in a a great location .

I stayed across the street at the Leland House which is a little quieter according to the front desk. The room was clean and nice with all the necessary amenities. They're are restaurants right across the street and you're only one block away from Main Street and all the activity of downtown.

We usually stay at the Rochester Hotel when we attend the Durango Independent Film Festival at the beginning of March. The hotel staff does an outstanding job making us feel welcome. The breakfasts are delicious and the menu varies every day. They will even share their recipes for all the muffins, cookies and scones! Everything is made fresh and is...

We come to Durango once a year, and we always stay at the Rochester. The walls are covered in old western movie posters, many of which were filmed in Durango. The rooms are cozy and clean, with just the right mix of antiques and modern conveniences. Each morning you are greated by friendly staff, and yummy homemade breakfast. And, of...

Stopped at the Rochester with friends between events for a glass of wine and a visit. The Rochester Cabernet is a terrific sipping wine. Our hosts joined us in conversation. No holds barred. Stimulating, interesting, and fun. Lovely atmosphere to hide away.

The positives are many for the Rochester/Leland. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, an authentic southwestern feel, and centrally located within walking distance of all the happenings on main street. This was our third stay here and it was great as usual. We prefer the Leland House side as it is a little more private but both sides are good. The...

It's quaint yet has a lot of charm and character from the old movie decor. The owners were on premises taking care of us and gave every sense that we and our comfort mattered to them. Nancy and her husband made us feel at home. The amenities are very nice considering the building was built in the 1890s. The bathroom...

Arrived after a long drive from Colorado Springs and were welcomed in warmly. Was placed in a suite across the street in their sister property. Lovely gas stove in the living room and lots of nice touches throughout. Breakfasts in the morning were outstanding.
