My husband and I stayed at River's edge almost four years ago, and returned this past Christmas for vacation. We loved the cozy rooms, the location (next to the river), and the great price. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We also love the the complimentary breakfast and friendly owners. You won't find two more hard working people! It's an... More

Visiting for a week in October, each day we grew happier with the River's Edge. Owners Dave and Chad really work hard to make the stay enjoyable, and went well beyond all expectations when any of us asked for help. The grounds are like a professionally manicured garden, looking great even at the onset of winter. We wished we could... More

We have been staying at the River's Edge for several years now, several times per year. Enough that the owners usually recognize us. Having stayed at several other places around town, we keep coming back to the River's Edge because everyone is so nice, and our dog loves it. There is a dog park right behind the facility too. It...

We stayed at the River's Edge on a recent winter road trip and we will definitely be back (maybe for the FJ Summit this summer!). The location is unbelievable; alongside the river with gorgeous mountain views and a block from the main drag in Ouray. The hosts are wonderful, too, very friendly and accomodating and I love that they allow... More

The Rivers Edge Motel is clean, with large rooms, refrigerator, cooktops, sunk and a babbling stream right outside to settle the nerves. 24 hot tub access with a modest sized, modest made continental breakfast included. Staff is nice and price is very good.

Fantastic location for Ice Festival (and all summer adventures too). Rooms are clean, modern, well furnished (two queens and a pull out sofa, sleep 6), very well laid out, and looked after daily during the stay (cleaned, beds made, towels replaced, etc.). The motel is centrally located within Ouray (a beautiful 2 block stroll to the very middle of Main... More

Great place to stay. Did all they could to ensure that all of our needs were met. Always had fresh towels available. Nice hot tub. Cool setting right by the creek. Fresh baked cookies with every breakfast!!

The hotel staff was friendly. Dave and Chad own and run the hotel and do all of the business, cleaning and maintenance themselves. They were available to us any time we needed something. Their breakfast was good and started at 7:30am. The room we stayed in was one of the smaller rooms but adequate for 2 people. It was cleaned... More

We took the kitchenette, which is good for early-morning outings because breakfast does not start until 8am. Hot tub is great for warming up after ice climbing days and the room heating is great to dry stuff for the next day. Coin-op laundry available. Only a block an a half from the mountain sports shop. Nice owners who also run... More

I've stayed here the last two times I've been to Ouray, and I won't stay anywhere else. Rooms are clean, owners are very nice, location is perfect, the sound of the river is a blessing. Couldn't ask for a more tranquil stay in Ouray.
