Our recent stay at the St Elmo Hotel could not have been better. We were booked for two nights and stayed three. David, the owner, could not have been nicer. He made us feel like friends instead of paying customers. He provided a lot of information about the local area and told us about a scenic road we had not... More

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at the St Elmo Hotel. We had a nice size room with lots of Victorian charm. The public areas are quiet and well decorated. The owner has a wine cocktail hour each day for the guests. In addition they offer a continental breakfast in the morning. Be sure to check out the... More

In gorgeous Ouray, a picture perfect small town wedged between mountain rock, there's an unassuming brick building right on the main drag....The St Elmo. Walking in is like stepping back in history --- in a lovely Victorian style small bnb type of inn filled with lovely antiques. The inn owner is beyond welcoming and immediately invited us to his happy... More

Randomly selected this hotel several months ago while planning an extended road trip through the west. We arrived mid afternoon to a friendly greeting from David (proprietor). After a brief check-in process, he showed us to our room. This is a lovely, beautifully decorated and period furnished b&b. The rooms are comfortable and a step back into the turn of... More

If you're looking for an off-beat, old-time, boutique hotel in Ouray, CO, may we recommend the St. Elmo? We loved the settings, both inside and out at this family owned-and-staffed historic B&B. Although our room offered little in the way of a view and was small by 21st century standards, it felt authentic and reflected the period that pervaded when... More

If you are looking for a safe, clean and affordable home away from home, this is the place. A quiet, calming and laid back atmosphere. Exactly the respite you'd hope to find. I always fear making reservations due to the fact you are never quite sure if the marketing of a business is as good as advertised. Most unfortunately, are... More

We recently stayed in this delightful hotel around Christmas We were very impressed with the decor. All the rooms had been newly wallpapered and painted with a turn of the century theme. The rooms were a delight. Next time we will book a suite. Breakfast should be improved. We had dinner 2 nights at their Bon Ton restaurant which was... More

Awesome owners! A father, a son, and a daughter offering friendly customer service above the rest. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. Cleanliness is an obvious priority here as well. Located on the main drag in Ouray with all nightlife and dining within walking distance. No sense in looking any further if you want a great experience at a great price.... More

This is a great B & B set in the Rocky Mountains. It is family owned with David (owner and father) doing desk duty and all around good fellowship. We were greeted by the daughter serving wine for happy hour and offering good ideas for where to go for dinner. St Elmo's is the site of the 2014 TripAdvisor winner... More
