Real old time feel of how people stayed in Hotels back in the day....places like this are dying and that is sad. Prices where cheap two if you get a shared bathroom room....which is how they did it back then as well. Only reason I did not give it full stars is because many easily maintainable and easy to fix...

Wonderful hosts, beautiful old western hotel. There are ghosts too. The original tin roof is still in the lobby, also the chandeliers and stained glass. The restaurant is the best in town and the view is breathless. Close to hiking trails, hot springs pool, and the best stores in town.

History buffs will love this historically worn building and the storyteller who goes with it. Gregg, the owner, entertained us with stories describing the old pictures which adorn the walls. They whisper stories of the rough and tumble silver mining era and the drama that went with it. The saloon/restaurant will take you back to the 1890's...how amazing is that?!... More

We wanted authentic and we got it. This old, old hotel is exactly as it has been for décades, with creaky floors, antique furniture, the original wallpaper, and history. If the walls could talk....be sure to participate in the owner's tour of the hotel as he explains all the rowdy past : gunfights, ladies of the night, and of course,... More

If you are looking for a modern, cookie-cutter hotel room, this ain't your place! It IS your place if you are looking for a touch of Old West feel and history with creaky old wood floors, no TVs (YES!), simple, vintage furniture and decor, a shared bathroom down the hall (except the 2 more expensive rooms with their own baths)...

We stayed at the Historic Western Hotel to stay at a cheap place in downtown Ouray. True to their description, it was cheap and the room was just a bed. That was fine because we knew that we weren't going to spend much time in the hotel. We booked the hotel 5 months ago because I am the type of... More

My son and I were on a Harley Davidson trip from LA to New York, (We flew from England) and we found Ouray the fourth night in. We parked our Harleys right outside, and were immediately welcomed by the owners. We booked a meal for later - I ordered a locally caught fish - and were shown to our rooms.... More

The idea of this hotel is that the rooms and services are as close as possible to how things would have been when the place was first built in the 1800s. It's a great idea and works really well! We had room 1 with two beds and a private bath. It's an extremely beautiful room with antique furnishings and hand... More
