We've been enjoying The Box Canyon Lodge for many years. The rooms are clean, the soaking tubs are hot and the staff is super friendly...especially Lawrence, the resident fluffy feline! We look forward to a visit every month!

We stayed in the small suite #115 for three nights. They use geothermal heat for the room, so it was plenty warm. The bed is a little soft, but comfortable enough. The bathroom has a window that opens, which makes for nice ventilation. The view from the balcony is over the parking lot, but just look beyond that to the... More

Dear mammothfan, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of our property. I am so pleased to know you enjoyed your visit with us. Our small suite 115 is a lovely room, and as you noticed, despite the deck facing the parking lot, it is close to impossible to find a poor view in Ouray!... More

We joined the once-a-month club at the Box Canyon Lodge when our daughter graduated from high school TEN years ago and have enjoyed their hospitality ever since! Clean rooms with all the amenities you need, great hot tubs and walking distance to downtown. Look forward to this every month!

We first came here for our 40th anniversary five years ago. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which has a tub-for-two. Since then we have just stayed in a regular room, as we decided we'd rather go into the hot tubs than a bathtub. (Maybe younger folks would not make that choice! ;-0) The rooms are heated with the geothermal... More

Pleasant, patient and gracious service. We were a group of 15 and we had nothing but positive comments from all. Thanks, BCL&HS, for another great stay. Plus the ice was in excellent shape again, this year. Thanks Ice Park staff!

This is a great hotel with a very friendly staff and some awesome hot spring fed pools and tubs. I was here in winter and they were perfect. The ice park is really close as is town. You really don't need to get in your car again the whole time you are here.

Dear Rob M Ouray is such a great town. Located as we are in the Southwest corner of town, it is true that once you park, pretty much anything you want to do is within walking distance. After a day on the ice, a nice long soak in our natural hot spring tubs is indeed the perfect way to end... More

King bed was comfortable. Room was clean and cozy. Soaking in the tubs was very relaxing with fabulous views. Lodge did not provide bath robes which was a disappointment and the towels were ok. I highly recommend you take a robe if you plan to soak in the winter months. There are four tubs and my husband and I were... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary ice climbing in Ouray and were so glad we chose this lodge. First, the staff is all super friendly. I had to change the dates of our stay at the last minute and the receptionist was very friendly and made sure we had the accommodations we needed. Second, members of the Ouray Ice... More
