Being able to park your car and then walk to town is a plus, for sure. The Box Canyon Lodge provides that. The room was clean, but it needs some refurbishing. The saloon style doors leading into the sink area seemed almost dangerous. We left a light on in the bathroom to keep from running into them. The room felt... More

Dear Mls430, One of the most wonderful things about Ouray is how accessible everything is! Hiking and jeeping trails are just a hop in one direction, and all the restaurants and shops on Main Street a short walk in the other. Our four mineral hot springs are a great experience as well. Soaking any time of day is a wonder... More

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.

Dear McKenna L, Our all natural mineral hot spring tubs are indeed a terrific way to relax away the activities of the day. A nice morning soak with a cup of our fresh roasted coffee is a great way to start the day as well! All of us at the Box canyon Lodge take pleasure in providing our guests with... More

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

Dear kate h, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs. Springtime in Southwest Colorado can be quite an adventure!

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.

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
