The Matterhorn hotel is a wonderful little establishment, right off Ouray's main street. Spotless, cozy, comfy mattress, clean (and plentyful) towels, and friendly staff. Can't ask more, they even have us discount tickets for the hot springs that saved us 6 dollars in two. You won't go wrong by staying here. If they keep up the good work, this will... More

Mickie is a wonderful innkeeper and makes you feel like family. We called last minute due to plan changes with a death in our inner circle. Mickie tried to give us a room within our budget and for the nights we needed and was able to do so. The rooms have all been remodeled and the beds are very comfortable.... More

Nice bed, lots of pillows, slept well. Love that the tv was all set up in a nice armoire so it can be closed off. Quiet and pleasant. Easy walk to main street and all the shops, very pleasant walking to anywhere in Ouray from here, nice view. Sadly the pool was empty but then the hot springs pool isn't... More

I have stayed in the Matterhorn for 4 summer trips in a row and for 2014 they have renovated all rooms, added new A/C and heat, new flooring, and the new management and staff is super friendly and very helpful! Location is one of the best in Ouray with easy walking distance of restaurants and shops on Main street. Can't... More

Stayed in Ouray yesterday at the Matterhorn. What a change with new owners and updated rooms! Mickie & Joe have done a magnificent job with the rooms and are in the process of making the rest of the motel more comfortable. The rooms are wonderful with comfortable beds, flat screen tvs, and great bathrooms. It looks like everything is new!!... More

Our first time staying at the Matterhorn and we loved it. Micki and her son (thank you both for being so nice) made us feel welcome and the new refurbished rooms are wonderful, tastefully decorated and the bathroom tile & tub are very modern. Hanging flower pots outside makes it esthetically pleasing. Breakfast vouchers are a plus. Look forward to... More

I stayed here for two nights in late June and was very impressed with the Inn. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the rooms were nicely appointed, clean with great modern updates. I was there coordinating a wedding and they even let us use their dryers for an emergency table cloth fiasco. I had also forgotten saline solution, and they... More

This motel has had a very quality updating. Amazing really. The touches of a true decorator were everywhere. Loved the flooring. Quality bed, furnishings and linens, huge flat screen television. Cheerful staff. Very excellent value. We really, really liked staying in this lovely motel.

We came to Ouray with no reservations and the Matterhorn was the first availability we found after 4 tries. We were glad we stayed here. They allow dogs. The room appeared to be newly renovated. It was very nice and comfortable. The staff was super friendly. It's a block off Main St and a block to the Ouray Brewery brewpub,... More

I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The business had just opened up from the remodel and so I believe my family and I were the first to stay and first to sleep on the new mattress! It was all so nice and new. The room was a little small around the bed but it's not like we were staying... More
