Traveling by motorcycle & got caught by the snow. Quiet, cheap, and close to town. Rooms are old but serviceable. People were nice. TV old, bed ok, big parking lot. Could use an update but the price was right.

The room was clean, but below modern standards. On par with a 1970s. The price however refects more modern accomodations. Location was excellent. In the middle of town, close to almost everything. But the town is so small walking shouldn't be an issue either. The shower didn't work, bath only. The lack of air conditioning wasn't a problem after the... More

This was our first trip to Ouray and for sure we will spend another $20 a night next time and stay at the Comfort down the street. The rooms were old, there was NO air conditioning, just a tiny fan that we could barely feel. The pool was closed and dirty, the hot tub was out of order, there was... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. Once we checked in, it was obvious the accomodations were sub-par. To list a few; the pool was closed/under repair, tub/shower broken, T.V. Broken, sheets and blankets poorly fitted, no blow dryer or soap... Very poor amenities. Good location, very pet friendly and nice staff. Not worth the $100 we paid.

The greatest advantage of this motel is proximity to the downtown area--one block away--and yet it's not a very nice place to sleep in the summer time! With NO air conditioning and just one small fan to clear the hot daytime air, it takes some time to fall asleep! If ONLY there was an outlet under the bedroom window, it... More

Great front desk help, quiet room. The fan in the room helped to move the air around. Lots of parking, no problems. We enjoyed staying here for one night. The town was full of people for a jeep rally. When we went to the visitor information center, they told us that almost everything in town was full but they called... More

I saw the room and left. It was probably built in the early 1900's but the outside looks okay. Really nice lady at the front desk. But when I looked in the room, there was no vent fan or anything. If you want to have any air in the room, you have to open the front window and the curtains... More

Hi, don't know what happened in '09 but this summer this place was great. We were camping and got rained out (two nights of heavy rain was all my tent could take). We tried a number of hotels and being unwilling to spend $200+ for one night, ended up here. The people were great. They clearly live there. The rooms... More

Pros: The woman at the counter was polite, professional and helpful. The view is amazing. The place was very clean and the price was affordable for those traveling on the cheap. Cons: This place needs to be renovated. The beds and furniture are '70's vintage. There is no air conditioning in the rooms and the lack of ventilation is stifling... More

After reading the reviews posted on Tripadvisor I decided to book a room at the Matterhorn which referenced new management and a good place to stay. The manager was very helpful for me but the motel itself was a cause for concern for me. First, missing window screens meant anyone could just step through my window. Second, the bannister on...
