Stayed two nights in a room next to the river that runs through town. Lovely decorations in all the rooms and very clean. Came with my in-laws, husband and 5 mth old daughter. The lady that was making breakfast played with my daughter while we all ate so I could enjoy myself. Everyone there was nice and welcoming. Will stay... More

Our room smelled like sewer and the inn keepers ( the owners) were know where to be found. There was no answer when we called to change rooms. In fact we saw them when we checked in to pay then did not see them for two days. When they checked us in they were very short with us and did... More

We have been comin here for years and it's always the same! That's what's great about being historic - really feels like being back in time in this small old town. Upgrades and accommodations are great though. Very clean building. Staff is very friendly. And hot tub out back has a great view. Awesome place to stay - we'll be... More

We came back after a 5 year absence and it felt as though we never left! Great room, great innkeepers Dan and Sandy, great BonTon and Buen Tiempo dinners. Been coming for 17 years to Ouray and staying here. Wonderful breakfasts and we are made to feel like this is our home away from home. You will love it!

This hotel is amazing. The owners are terrific and treat each guest like family. They offer a glass of wine and snacks each afternoon and a delicious breakfast each morning in the quaint and lovely breakfast room. The Victorian decor fits the historic hotel to a T. Our room was spacious with wonderful amenities and linens. There is also a... More

St. Elmo's has more charm and character than most any place we have ever stayed. With its antique furniture and Victorian decor, it almost made us forget what century this is. The rooms were spacious and beautifully furnished. Very clean. Luxurious towels and some of the best shampoo, soap, and lotion samples we have used. The rooms are not air... More

We have stayed at the St. Elmo Hotel in Ouray, Colorado several times over the past 35 years - usually as a couple; most frequently, we spent a long winter weekend there for our wedding anniversary. It remains one of our favorite hotels in the world because of its 1) gorgeous location in the San Juan Mountains, in the charming... More

We stayed here for one night before heading over to Telluride for skiing. The St. Elmo hotel had very nice owners. It was very clean and the decor was very charming. Our room did not have a television but I was not disappointed by that fact because why watch tv when there's so much beauty in Ouray to be seen.... More

My boyfriend took me to Ouray recently on my first trip to see him in Colorado. After driving to through the country side, we stopped in Ouray. We hadn't planned on staying over night, but made a last minute decision to stay in town. I liked the look of the St. Elmo's Hotel so we decided to venture in. I... More

My husband and I have been visiting the St. Elmo for the past ten years and recently stayed again for our tenth anniversary. We were very sad by what the new owners have turned this amazing place into:( It was dirty, the service was very bad and it smelled like a coffee shop in Amsterdam. Our room smelled like pot... More

We do want to let everyone know that the St. Elmo is back under the established ownership that owned and operated the hotel from 1984 thru 2011. With this news, we hope that you will book a room and experience once again the grace and... More
