Years past we have stayed at another hotel in Ouray. On a whim my husband called Rivers Edge. Not only were they cheaper but had a lot more to offer. The location is great. Walking distance to main street and the best views. Will come back for sure.

Its not the most modern looking motel but the owners/operators make up for it with service. You can tell they have put a lot into maintain the motel. Its within walking distance to all the downtown attractions including the hot springs. We will stay here next time we stay in Ouray.

We stayed here over Christmas 2014 and it was amazing! They are so personable and very friendly. The owners went out of their to make it extra special for our family. We didn't have a Christmas tree since we were traveling and they showed up unexpectedly with a little one for us. It made everything perfect for Christmas morning. Anything... More

We stayed at this hotel during our trip along the million dollar to experience fall colors in the San Juan National Forest. The hotel is located on a quiet street with an easy walk to the main street in Ouray lined with a variety of restaurants. The room we were in was small but cozy with one of the most... More

What a lovely place to stay! Ouray is situated in a pretty valley beneath the mountains. A river flows down from the mountains at the side of the motel near to where you can soak in the lovely hot tub. The owners welcomed us warmly and we felt at home straight away. The rooms were good, clean and well equipped.... More

Nice clean rooms, close to the river and the Hot Springs. Our family has stayed here a few times and we're never disappointed. Our rooms were right above the office and still quite. The cabins by the river are also cute.

Staying at the River's Edge made our time in Ouray perfect. The room was incredibly nice and the bed and bunch of pillows were better than ours at home! Soaking in the hot tub near the flowing river while surrounded by the beautiful mountains was a plus. Dave and Chad know how to take care of their guests. This is... More

My wife and I stayed there in August. We were greeted warmly by the owners. The room was great. However, my wife fell and broke her wrist on a hike outside of town early the next morning. That is when the service really began. They directed us to the hospital and checked on her constantly. They directed us to The... More

We stumbled on this place two tears ago and took pains to return early this fall. This is not a chain motel. It is owned by individuals and the pride of ownership is obvious. The setting is by a mountain stream furnished with benches and patios for the enjoyment of the patrons. Ouray is in a valley so everywhere you... More
