The review before this one describes it well. As a man alone and cheap I got a very small and old-fashioned room with limited amenities -- I see from other reviews there are larger rooms -- but it was clean, and well and thoughtfully maintained. There is great charm in the small hotel -- well placed in a town that... More

We enjoyed our stay at the St. Elmo! It's small--maybe eight rooms, but everything is historic. It's like traveling back in town. Room are small, although well appointed. The bathroom is tiny, only a shower and toilet. Sink and mirror are actually at the far end of the room. Our room had two period sitting chairs with a small table... More

This place was beautiful. I admit I was nervous because my previous stay at another hotel in town was not a great one, however this totally surprised me! The fact that they were able to carry the Victorian theme throughout the whole Inn made it magical and very relaxing. St. Elmo's is located on Main Street and easy walk to... More

We recently stayed at this restored turn of the century inn, and were so delighted with this historic inn and town. It has been restored to its original victorian charm, and you feel like you stepped back in time from the moment you walk through the door. The inn was immaculate, the service was excellent, and the morning breakfasts were... More

Clean, with an excellent breakfast. Close in downtown, easy walk to rest of Ouray. Bed left a lot to be desired, was not the pillow top mattress advertised. Friends room had wash basin in room, not in bathroom. Restaurant was too pricey for our budget although other friends said it was excellent. No TV's or phones in rooms.

We've found casually the hotel, and when we've entered in the room we realized it was a very good price for the value. The rooms (#3) was charming and really well furnished. Absolute cleanliness over all, and the morning after we experienced a great breakfast with a very nice and courteous staff. A very nice experience.

We took a tour of Colorado in May 2009 and Ouray was a must stopover, even though we only could stay for one night. On a previous trip we had been impressed by the restaurant at the St. Elmo's Hotel and decided to spend our one evening there. We could not have been happier. Our party had two rooms and... More

If your looking for a great mountain town hotel this is it. The rooms are beautiful with period furnishing and decor, with a great restaurant downstairs. They serve a very nice breakfast each morning that is included with your room, and they have a wine and cheese gathering each evening that is nice to meet fellow travelers. We fell asleep... More

Concluding a 3-night stay. The hotel is charming. Our room (#6) was as expected. Comfortable Queen bed, nice period decor. This room doesn't have a sitting area, but suited our needs perfectly. The sink is in the bedroom, not in the bathroom. I liked it as I could do hair/makeup while my boyfriend showered. I wish there were more rooms... More

My parents, sister and I stayed at the St. Elmo Hotel for one night, and it was a fantastic experience. The room was absolutely charming with period furnishings, nice toiletries, and a very comfortable bed. They provided wine and refreshments in the afternoon, which was a wonderful way to meet the other guests, and the included breakfast was amazing! The... More
