“Relaxing and Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2011

After an exhilarating day at the world famous Ouray Ice Park my friend and I checked into the Wiesbaden Hot Springs Spa and Lodgings. A great choice. The staff was welcoming, the room quiet and cozy, the mineral waters sparkling clean and so.....hot. The vapor cave holds the flowing hot springs water in a shallow pool that ranges in temperature from 105 to 108 degrees. The atmosphere enveloped me giving the sensation of being in a womb. Very comforting. The outdoor pool was less intense, around 102 degrees and a good place to float and look up at the stars. A private pool called the Lorelei, named after the mythological German mermaid is available to book by the hour for private use. It is surrounded by garden an has a small waterfall.
After the soak we walked down the hill to Main Street to the Buen Tiempo, a lively Mexican restaurant and cantina. Ordered an Ultimate Margarita with a salted rim and Spinach Enchiladas that I have developed a new craving for. A day of exercise, soaking, good food and a comfortable bed made for a dreamy night. Ouray holds many gems.

My huband and I just live 10 miles north of Ouray, so for us a night at the Wiesbahdenen was a mini-break from our hectic lives as retirees. We had gone snowshoeing up on Red Mountain Pass and when we arrived at the Wiesbahden we immediately retired to the lovely Loreli private soaking pool for an hour. Our room was charming. There were coffee and tea fixings in the lobby. The next morning after a peaceful night's sleep we enjoyed the vapor caves and the hot springs pool. This is a wonderful place to get away from it all even if "it all" is just 10 miles up the road!

We have stayed at the W periodically, beginning in the early 1980's. It has undergone changes of ownership and management, and each turn it seemed that things changed for the worse. We hadn't been to the W for over 10 years, and at that time there was an air of pretentious spirituality. It was like all guest were expected to be serene and meditative or something. We were there with our kids to have fun! (Which we used to succeed at, at the W in previous visits).

This time: NOBODY is allowed to stay who has smoked for the PAST THREE MONTHS. I don't know about you, I wish for world peace and feel personally aggrieved when I learn of outrages against humanity anywhere in the world, but after a rigorous bike ride or run around town, I like to sit on the balcony with a scotch and a cigar. Not any more, here. We'll go somewhere else.

I prefer the units with doors to the outside. Atleast one inside rooms has no windows except for the bath. Faucilities are fabulous, both the public and private waters. The vapor caves are a must do. The Lorelei, a private pool is really great and romantic. One thing did make me nervous about the Lorelei, the low hanging electrical power line that is rubbing againts a tree. Reserve time for a massage! The staff is great. Very happy that this is a non-smoking spa/hotel.

The vapor cave was excellent as was the massage both my husband and I received. The rooms were a bit small but I've stayed in smaller rooms in Southwest Colorado. It's an older building so small nuances are to be expected like a portable radiant heater in the room. We happened to stay at a very cold time but the springs did an excellent job of warming us up and the robes were great! We hope to return again!

Just returned from Ouray, CO, "Little Switzerland of America" which is a tiny gem of a town and a fantastic stay at the Wiesbaden Hot Springs Motel. The only reason i did not give it excellent marks in rooms is that the rooms are a bit on the small side. But they are beautifully appointed and every room is a bit different. For me and my friends it was no problem as we spent all our waking hours in the hot springs or eating! (Several great places to eat, a bit surprising for such a small town.) But some people like large hotel rooms. The best part is the overall charm of the Motel, the gracious staff, including the owner Linda Wright-Minter, and of course the fabulous Vapor Cave (in essence a mineral steam bath) and the two on-sight hot springs that are available almost 24/7. They have an Aveda salon on site for massage, facials and other spa treatments. If you are ever even an hour away from this location i strongly recommend a detour to this little piece of heaven!

We stumbled upon this wonderful gem after the Ouray Hotel gave away our less expensive room to another guest (apparently a credit card wasn't enough for them). We were very lucky to find one room available here in the Wiesbaden Lodge as it was very late and raining when we arrived, with many no-vacancies in town, and what a serendipitous finding it was!

The lobby was a beautiful decorated alpine-windowed room to hang out in (coffee, teas and mugs available 24-7 and free wifi), and our room was BEAUTIFUL, not like a hotel room at all, decorated with traditional furnishings, china teacups, paintings of cats and beautiful bedding. It was just darling and well cared for. We stayed in a different room on the second night which had a very convenient pantry with a refrigerator. This room was also quite nice.

Included in the price was full access to the vapor cave that lies under the hotel, with a shallow 109 degree hot pool. There was also an outdoor hot spring swimming pool that ran about 103 degrees. So Luxurious. We did not take advantage of the private "Lorelai" hot pool but plan to do so next time.

The staff was very friendly and attentive, and made our stay very pleasant indeed. We didn't even make it to the Ouray City-owned public Hot Springs as we'd intended as we had it all, right in our own hotel.

This would be a very lovely and romantic getaway in the winter, too.
