We've come to ouray for years and this is by far the best place to stay. The owners are fantastic. The rooms are well kept and clean. There are two hot tubs and beautiful flowers. I would recommend this place without any hesitation. It's a great value and we love supporting the kind, hardworking local owners

Stayed in the Queen Suite (their least expensive) and it was fine. The room is a bit small with a small bathroom but came with a small fridge, microwave and desk. Bed comfy, pillows a bit hard and over stuffed (it made my neck hurt) but overall a good value for the price (under 100.00 per night). Location is great,... More

This is a great place to stay and it's two blocks off the main drag, so it's quiet. The first thing you notice is the property is manicured. The owners have spent a lot of time making the grounds look beautiful. The rooms are clean and they serve a nice breakfast in the morning. I'd bring my family back here... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at River's Edge. Although the motel is an older accommodation, it is well kept and clean; landscaping is beautiful! The owners are caring and considerate. We highly recommend this motel.

Dave and Chad were wonderful hosts; friendly and quick to respond to any request. They made us very comfortable traveling with our dog. With the beautiful landscaped grounds, the many hanging baskets of flowers and adjacent river with the soothing sounds it provided; we hope to return. The location was close to the main street and shops so you could... More

Wonderful place to stay. The owners are visible and hands on and worked very hard to make our stay pleasurable. They really try to treat you like family and by the end of our stay we felt like it. Great location, clean rooms and beautiful landscape to enjoy time outside of our room. A beautiful river runs right along the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rivers Edge Motel. The room was clean, the grounds were immaculate and the atmosphere was perfect with the mountain stream running . What we were really impressed with was the staff and their help. We changed plans after our initial booking and added days and the only way the staff could accommodate us... More

This was our 1st time to Ouray and we stayed at Rivers Edge for four nights. We can honestly say we could find no faults with it. The rooms were very clean, grounds very nicely landscaped, good breakfast, very nice patio hot tub area and easy 1 block walk to Main Street. Not to mention the price of the room... More

We arrived and found a beautiful motel for our July 4th weekend. Unfortunately, I thought we had booked a ground floor room, but the proprietors had no record of that. Also unfortunately, the metal steps, which you could see through and were not especially friendly for dog feet, were a problem. My dogs would not go up and down them.... More

We stayed in Rm. 31 in June 2014. It was one of the larger rooms with direct street access. Wonderful room and location; close to town; great parking for our motorcycle. Grounds are beautiful with the river next to lodge. Breakfast area is rather small and can be crowded but that was minor inconvenience considering all other positives. Have never... More
