“Good value in midst of Ouray and the surrounding mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2010

Nice rooms at very reasonable price, nice staff and spectacular views.

Beds could have been a bit better tough (too soft) and breakfast was missing.

I would recommend Ouray and the Chalet for anyone who wants to know how the Swiss alps look like without needing an intercontinental flight. It's not exactly the same, but it comes very close.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2010

I stayed here for one night in September, and selected this motel for it's location and reasonable rates. Upon arrival I was greeted by the young lady at the front desk who was very efficient and courteous and informed me of everything I needed to know. Although the hotel is older and the rooms are a bit dated, my room had everything I needed and it was clean. There are plenty of places to stay in Ouray but the Chalet has the prime lodging location in Ouray, right smack in the middle of Main street with all the shopping and dining within 3 blocks either way.

This is a great place. The rooms were very comfortable. I will have to say the air conditioner was in a very strange place (by the bathroom) The vanity area was nice and cold but the room with the beds didn't get cool enough for me. Luckily it wasn't super hot the night we stayed there. The staff was wonderful.

This is a beautful place. It is a little old fashioned in ambiance, and that is what was so cool. It was VERY clean, had all the amenities you could possibly need and the staff was extremely courteous. I would love to stay here again. When we went inside to our room there was old fashioned music piped in which you could turn off it you wanted, but it was very pleasant.

We liked the Ouray Chalet Inn very much. The room was fairly large, with a microwave and fridge, as others have noted and well equipped with towels, soap, etc.; and the laundry room was squeaky clean and an asset for travelers. The hotel staff was especially helpful in recommending Switzerland of America for a jeep tour. We had trouble getting our AC adjusted to a comfortable position on a really warm July day, but otherwise, everything was just fine. I'd stay here again.

The Ouray Chalet Inn, like 90% of the lodging in Ouray, is centrally located with an easy walk to everywhere. The beds were comfortable and each room had a microwave, mini refrigerator and coffee maker. If you are on the ground floor, there is an outside bench to sit on and absorb the beauty of the mountains.

We slept with our windows open every night and it was quiet even though it is on the Main street.

The Inn does not serve breakfast, but there are plenty of places to eat within a stones throw. It has a modern washer and dryer ($5.00 total) and a nice comfortable patio adjacent to a hot tub.

Unless you are there hiking or biking, Ouray is probably a one night stop.
