Purgatory Lodging

World Nomads Travel Insurance
For those skiing or snowboarding at Purgatory Ski Resort, there are many options for lodging that broadly fall into three locations: on-mountain at Purgatory Resort; near the Purgatory Ski Resort; and in the town of Durango.

Purgatory Resort Lodgings

The number of Purgatory accommodations available at the ski resort has grown over recent years. Lodgings include a hotel, hotel style condominiums, town homes and vacation rentals. Many of the Purgatory lodgings are ski-in ski-out or close to it, whilst some of the properties on Sheol Street require a short walk before clicking in.

Staying at the Purgatory ski resort obviously offers the great convenience of being able to wake up, have breakfast and then start sliding. One downside of staying on-mountain is that the dining and nightlife options are very limited, but many of the families that stay at Purgatory are happy to cook at home and stay in for the night. Budget will also need to not be a concern, as the accommodation is not easy on the pocket.

Hotel accommodation is available at the Purgatory Village Hotel in deluxe king rooms, studios or multi-room suites. Popular and well located vacation rentals include the Alpenglow Townhomes and Elk Point Townhomes.

The pièce de résistance of Purgatory accommodation is the Purgatory Lodge. This property is luxurious and ski-in ski-out. In addition to convenient access to the slopes, restaurants, bars and shops, guests enjoy access to the pool, hot-tub and cabana bar that all afford gorgeous views of the ski area. The accommodations range in size from 2 to 4 bedrooms condominiums.

Durango Hotels

The town of Durango has an abundance of accommodation. A huge advantage of staying in Durango is that the hotels are very reasonably priced, and some motels will suit even the thriftiest of skiers.

In downtown Durango examples of hotels are the historic Strater Hotel (699 Main Ave), a delightful establishment, the General Palmer Hotel (567 Main Avenue) and The Rochester Hotel. These Durango hotels have great access to the fabulous restaurants and bars in and around Main Avenue.

On north Main Avenue (state highway 789) there are a string of economical hotels and motels such as Econo Lodge Inn & Suites, Days End, Abbey Inn, Quality Inn, Travelodge, and Best Western Mountain Shadows. The hotels and motels will fight hard for your business with entertaining signs out the front to attract the passersby.

Durango bed and breakfast properties are also available downtown. Examples of well regarded B&Bs are the Leland House Bed and Breakfast and Gable House Bed and Breakfast.
