The rooms are pleasant and clean. The location is at one end of town, so a little walk to the center of town. But not a big problem. Summer is busy so you may need to park on side streets to shop. The wooden hot tubs are great and have different temps. This is the highlight of the motel.

Stayed only one day but a great experience. A beautiful place in and out. Room is spacious, clean and comfortable equipped with all the necessary things and natural touch interiors. You should go and look out the backyard where you would find picture like a spring tub ensconced in the hill. Regret that we couldn't stay more due to snow... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Box Canyon inn. The young man at the front desk was very helpful and made sure we were satisfied with our room and all. He also recommended places to visit when in Ouray. Wonderful service. The hot tubs were amazing as well. We absolutely loved it here, could have stayed forever!

From start to finish, our experience at Box Canyon Lodge was exemplary. David at the front desk was efficient and helpful as well as very personable; check-in was quick and easy. The room was charming, clean, and the bed was so very comfortable. The hot spring tubs were quite private, and the stars were highly visible at night because of... More

Stayed two nights to hike. Nice motel, nice rooms. Quiet and clean. Great Wifi service. No complaints except the weather. Close to downtown. Close to perimeter hiking trail which is a very fun trail but the signage is terrible. Town is surrounded by mountains and offers majestic scenes wherever you look. No breakfast except coffee, sweet rolls and juice.

Dear Denny D, The Box Canyon Lodge is a great base camp for hiking for sure! Close to Main Street in one direction, and a variety of excellent hiking trails in the other, we seem to have the best of both worlds! It is always an adventure when travelling to Ouray in the Spring. One minute, it is almost too... More

Love this place! Breathtakingly gorgeous! Stayed there with my boyfriend and he checked us in the honeymoon suite where you can just sit out the back patio enjoy the quietness and the mountain view. Staff David is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is very adorable. I most certainly recommend this lodge to anyone wanting to get the real mountain... More

We had a wonderful time in Ouray and staying at Box Canyon. The rooms were clean, the bed was wonderful and it is within walking distance to downtown Ouray. Check out the amazing restaurants and the brewery! The only downside is that the soaking tubs are not that big and I can see, on a busy day, where you may... More

Dear Tina B, Ouray does boast a great variety of restaurants for such a small town, and both the Ouray Brewery and the Ourayle House offer such an amazing variety of amazing craft beers. Our four all natural mineral hot springs tubs are an awesome way to relax, and you are correct that there are times it gets a little... More

My wife and I made the mistake of not planning ahead and the lodge was booked up. So we just had to stay another day just so we could say we stayed at the Box Canyon Lodge. The stay was so pleasant we plan on coming back with the smarts to book ahead of time. The staff was GREAT our... More

My family and I have been coming to Ouray for a few years now, but this was the first time we stayed at the Box Canyon Lodge.

I would highly recommend the lodge! The hot tubs are fed from a natural hot spring and are placed up the side of the mountain overlooking the town of Ouray! Beautiful! Very relaxing and quiet! It's a great getaway!!
