“Best in Ouray”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

We have stayed at River's Edge several times it has been a wonderful experience each time. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are always clean, and the breakfast was great. The owners are exceptional and extremely personable. The two new hot tubs are a great addition to this property. We could not have asked for a better stay in Ouray at the River's Edge Motel, it gets better and better every time. You will NOT be dissapointed!

We had a reservation elsewhere in Ouray, but when we saw it we looked around for a better place. Rivers Edge was sooooo much better and the price was so reasonable that we changed immediately. The owners were so friendly and the room was large, with a living area and a separate bedroom area. Right by the stream with hot tubs overlooking beautiful property. Very convenient to town and eating establishments, hiking, jeeping and shopping. We grilled on the patio in the evening and mingled with other guests. Breakfast was complementary every morning.

Wow, what a bargain! We arrived in Ouray to camp, but then saw this screaming deal. It's awesome, roomy, breakfast is good and very conveniently located. My family of four was perfectly content with everything.

Four of us needed a place to stay in Ouray and we checked several hotel/motels. Many were nice but we felt overpriced. Then we found this gem. Clean, neat, and the owners were very accommodating. Coffee and breakfast in the morning with fresh baked cookies. Very friendly management, good parking. AND, at a fraction of the price of the other establishments. We would go out of our way to stay at this motel again. Dr. Thomas Rumreich, Scandia, MN forensick@aol.com (One of the four motorcyclers)

This is a great place to stay! The rooms were clean and inviting. The beds and linens were so comfortable! The grounds were almost tropical. The staff were incredibly helpful! This is THE place to stay!

We called last minute to see if they had any vacancy for the night, and were told by Dave that in fact there was! We looked online at other places in Ouray and they were all well over $150 a night. Even with a dog, we were able to stay 2 nights here (we stayed an extra night because we fell in love with the place) for the price of one night elsewhere, and there is a continental breakfast to boot. They were very friendly, accommodating, rooms are clean and quaint and we were treated like family; not like just another customer. I will always look here first next time we are in the area. I would highly recommend River's Edge Motel to anyone, over ANY hotel in the area!

This was our third stay at Rivers Edge Motel. We started staying here on trips through Ouray because this is one of the few dog-friendly motels in town, but we return because it is so people-friendly also. The location adjacent to the river is pleasant and a short walk to both the main street and the city park-hot springs. The owners are building a new riverside patio for 2012. The rooms are nice size, clean and quiet.
