This 9-bedroom historic hotel has been nicely renovated in the not-to-distant past. Very nice Victorian furnishings throughout. Pleasant owners/staff. The room was very quiet even though it faced the street and there were other guests in the place. Very nice seating area overlooking the main street. Good wifi connectivity. Clean room and bath. Good breakfast. Overall, a very good experience.

We have stayed here several times through Ouray and been wowed. We were not this time. I understand that there are new owners - and the son and daughter are supremely nice. However - if you've seen Hotel Hell (Gordon Ramsay) you'll get what I mean! Rooms are pretty tired. We had been touring CO in the past week and... More

With the St. Elmo's under new ownership and management, our stay there could not have been better. The Victorian charm is at it's best in the historic landmark hotel, and the views of the surrounding mountain range are never ending. Very clean room/bathroom with extra nice linens, towels, tissues, and other extras! A must return is already in the planning!!... More

We booked a room at St. Elmo's ayer hearing wonderful things about it from family members that always stayed at St. Elmo's hotel wyeb visiting Ouray. We had great expectations after reading reviews in trip advisor. Unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed by our stay from the moment we walked in. Apparently this B&B was bought by a family from San... More

My husband planned a surprise weekend get-away to Ouray and he chose the St. Elmo Hotel because he knows how much I enjoy history. If you enjoy the charm of an historical hotel, you won't be disappointed in this hotel. It is ideally located on the main street of Ouray. We were there in early August and the room was... More

Nicer and less expensive than the chains. Close to everything in Ouray. Historic building with terrific wallpapers and period furniture (comfy, modern beds). Nice and quiet at night. Breakfast is included. Pleasant brother/sister owners are on site. Excellent food at the attached Bon Ton restaurant. Will definitely stay here again.

The St. Elmo Hotel is a historic hotel that is so beautiful and perfect you would never know it was constructed in 1889. The family that owns the hotel are hands on and were there to even help out serving delicious breakfasts and coffee every morning. Traveled with a friend and we had a suite that I describe as a...

I visit Ouray frequently and have never stayed here before - that mistake will be corrected from now on. This is a beautiful building with antique furnishings throughout. Each room is unique and has modern updates in the baths. The wi-fi was available anywhere in the hotel and the breakfast was delicious. I felt like I was staying at a... More

We only stayed one night, but had a great time. The room was at the front of the hotel just before the road goes up the mountain. I thought we might hear cars downshifting at night - but everything was very quiet - and we could see the Cascade Waterfall from the window. The decorations were very attractive, and the... More

Quiet, beautifully decorated and furnished. In the small town of Ouray in the Colarado Rockies. We had a very hairy ride in our hire car over three 10,000 foot passes to get here from Durango and Mesa Verde. Delicious finely crafted breakfast. A lot of love & care has gone into the small hotel. Lovely four poster beds! Ouray is... More
