“Cozy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

This was my second visit to Ouray but my first staying at the Matterhorn. Mickie, the hotel host was extremely welcoming and helpful--she even helped us make a Valentine's Day reservation and knew that the most popular restaurant in town was already booked for it, despite that this was 3 days prior.

The room was surprisingly well furnished with gorgeous floors and quality furniture. The pieces combined were a little large for the overall size of the room, but there were plenty of storage spots for clothing and gear--I was thrilled that the bathroom counter actually had drawers!

Typical of most contemporary hotels, the in-room coffee maker created coffee-flavored water, so plan ahead if you are a coffee-lover. There was also a microwave and mini-fridge, both a pleasant surprise. The room was very clean and kept that way throughout our visit.

If you are a breakfast person, it's important to note that the only hot complimentary breakfast item is oatmeal that you make yourself. I was disappointed not to have eggs and/or waffles. But otherwise this was a truly wonderful home away from home!

Stayed February 2015, traveled with friends

Booked this hotel based on positive reviews and a good price. Everything met or exceeded my expectations. Room and bath had been recently updated. Friendly staff and helpful with recommendations for restaurants in town. I would definitely stay at the Matterhorn Motel again.

Great place to stay! The rooms were newly remodeled, clean and very comfortable. Price was very economical.

New owners were very nice and clearly have made a difference. Please ignore any older reviews prior to the new owners taking over. Wonderful hotel.

Highly recommend.

My wife and I live an hour and a half from Ouray and just wanted to get out of town for our anniversary. We found the Matterhorn Motel in the middle of town and discovered what a quaint, accommadating motel it is! The location is perfect, we just parked our car and were able to walk all over town without sore feet. What a delightful place and the rennovation is very impressive! We so appreciated the friendly owners who were there to answer any questions we had and send us on our way with a great Ouray experience!!

Right in town, comfy beds, and great owners. The Matterhorn remodel looks great and although it is a motel, it doesn't feel cheap at all once you are in your room. The website and hotels.com did say that there was breakfast included but we only found the standard Otis Spunkmeyer (SP?) muffins and coffee in the lobby. Previous reviews spoke of a coupon or voucher to a nearby restaurant, which wasn't offered to us, though it was off season so maybe that has something to do with it. Overall, a great little place to stay when your intentions are to see the town!

We only had one night to stay in the wonderful mountain town of Ouray, Colorado but are so happy we found this amazing motel. The owners bend over backwards to make sure our stay was perfect...and it was! These are new owners and have completely renovated throughout. Our recommendation is to give this town and motel more than one night.

One of the very best, if not the best, motel I have stayed in. The rooms are very inviting and well cared for and completely remodeled with quality throughout. I usually intensely dislike staying in motels, but I look forward to returning to this motel because of the quality. The owners are very warm and personable. Great service!
