We checked in on Saturday afternoon for a two night stay and were put into a room right behind the office. This King room had access to a separate living room and a private deck. The room and bed were just right (the bathroom was a bit small), the living room gave us the ability to sit on a couch... More

We stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, close to the river where we could hear the soothing sound of the river running, with our windows open. The hot breakfast was very good, complete with a waffle machine for fresh made waffles and scrambled eggs plus numerous other items to pick from to complete the breakfast and made a... More

Although my family did not stay the night at this hotel, this hotel and it's owners are by far the least hospitable people I have ever met. Several months back my family reserved 2 nights at this hotel. Upon reservation (on their website) we were never sent any confirmation info or contacted about our reservation with this hotel. We proceeded... More

Husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Room was spacious and comfortable. Bed was also comfortable. Our view of the mountains from our bed was beautiful and the sound of the nearby creek was incredibly relaxing. The breakfast which was available every day was a very nice plus. Just to name a few items for breakfast, you could have... More

Let us reassure everyone, that fresh towels are always changed after a guest leaves. We are damned if we do and damned if we don't. Many people are eco friendly. In some cases a towel left hanging means do not replace. In most cases people wish for their towels to be changed every day. On occasions towels are slightly damp... More

From check in to check out everything was very well done. The owner is friendly and welcoming. The rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. The breakfast was a step up from the usual hotel fare. There were scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, and prepared hot oatmeal. The grounds are really pretty and it's close enough to walk to everything in... More

Very clean and large room. Friendly staff. What a great bonus to hear the sound of the river right outside your back door. Location is easy walking distance to everything in and around town. Always a bonus to have breakfast included with a hungry family:)

This motel is amazing! It is so beautiful as it sits along the river. We wished we would have arrived in time to spend more time at the hot tub and the beautiful grounds. We had a family suite and a wonderful breakfast was served! But the greatest amenity is the owner! He was so accommodating! We hope to return... More

Ouray CO is a wonderful mountain town. I can see why the Little Switzerland comparison is made. This hotel is right by the main river in town. We stayed in early June and the river was very high and running strong, which made for a pleasant backdrop. Friendly staff and owners, clean rooms, lots of space. Good parking. Will stay... More

We stayed in the "lodge" which we did not quite understand at time of booking. It was a quirky set up and felt like it was a room in the owner's residence at one time. It was clean and comfortable. We had to pay an extra $10 for a 3rd person breakfast even though only 2 of us ate. I... More

These guests booked a room that houses only 2 people. The rate is set for 2 people. They brought there son along and assumed he could sleep free of charge. There reservation was in our premier suites. This is a adult friendly atmosphere, no more than 2 people per room.(even says that on the web site). We allowed them to... More
