I've stayed at the Box Canyon Lodge at least a dozen times since 1986. This is by far the best place to stay if your into ice climbing at the Ouray Ice Park. If you go in April, go after Easter weekend. Spring break begins in Ouray County and the town is yours. The place is very clean, quiet and... More

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was very clean. The king bed was super comfortable and was either triple sheeted or had a duvet cover. This hotel is in a good location in Ouray. It is just a short walk to the Box Canyon Falls, and the restaurants are only a few blocks away in the other direction.... More

I asked for a room for 3 adults and was give a suite with two queen beds in the bedroom for a total of $175...it was a bit steep and I would have appreciated having a brighter room with just two queens instead. The room was very nice with upgraded bedroom furnishings and nice linens and had a full living... More

I've stayed in this hotel twice in the last six months. Both times were wonderful! The staff is extremely helpful, housekeeping does an outstanding job keeping the rooms clean, and the beauty of the surrounding area is unsurpassed for the price you pay to stay at this wonderful hotel. During my second visit, I was able to stay in a... More

The staff at Box Canyon Lodge is very accommodating and friendly. The rooms are clean and fairly priced. The location is perfect, nestled in the shadow of the surrounding snow capped mountains. I was co-leading a photography tour and every one of the participants enjoyed their stay. Well done Box Canyon! I'll be back.

Overpriced!! Room was too small. Not comfortable at all. Insufficient parking! Came back at 10:30 PM, and there was no parking available short of two blocks away. Two of the four hot tubs were not as warm as my bath water at home. The autocratic rules regarding smoking are too dictatorial. We were told that there is no smoking allowed... More

We couldn't ask for a nicer spot to stay. There is real pride in ownership at this Lodge. Everything is painted nicely. Flowers are growing and tended to and weed free. The mineral hot tubs are extra special. The motel unit was clean and nice. The door security cards are the best! Very quaint! It's a easy walk or short... More
