“Its a sleeper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I spend lots of weekends in the beautiful town of Ouray Colorado. It so happened that our favorite hotel was closed for a scheduled maintenance as they do every March. I jumped on TripAdvisor and found the Rivers Edge Hotel, In Ouray. They were offering a very reasonable rate for the the two nights we had planned so I went for it, we arrived early for check in just in case it was not to our liking we could move on to another place. The owners Dave and Chad were at reception when I check in and the rest was history. Great service, a very nice place to stay, clean, well maintained and easy access and plenty of parking. The complementary breakfast we did not use but snuck in for a home made cookie. Yes we will stay there again, the guys were great and the hotel was great.

Room Tip: Great place to stay. Easy access to downtown, only a block away.

My husband & I have been visiting Ouray for over 20 years. We have stayed at the Rivers Edge a couple of times now and it has become our favorite. It is located close to all that Ouray has to offer - ice climbing, snow shoeing, and hiking. The motel also is reasonably priced and has its own hot tub. But the primary reason Rivers Edge is our favorite is that the owners attend to all of our needs, are friendly, and make it a point to make our visit enjoyable.

We stayed here a few weeks ago while my husband ice-climbed. It was wonderful and we will return next year! It was a quick walk to town which was nice for me (who wasn't iceclimbing.) Our little kitchen was perfectly stock. The owners were wonderful. It snowed often while we were there and they were up early shoveling away. They also kept our rooms very clean. They were friendly and one of the owners even took the time to make me a waffle in the morning! We will be back without a doubt.

My husband and I had a wonderful nights stay. Excellent value, pet friendly and very courteous owners. Our room was maticulously clean and their continental breakfast provided a great start to our drive home.
Looking forward to staying here again! Best value for your buck in Ouray.

I've stayed at the Rivers Edge in Ouray for the Ice Festival for six years in a row. I really appreciate that the rooms are clean and reasonably priced. With a membership to the "Ouray Ice Park" you can save even more---well worth the investment for me and my friends.

I appreciate that the hot tub is open 24/7 and has towels available right on the deck--- no scrambling around for an extra towel from the room.

The continental breakfast is very good, my only gripe is that I'm an early riser and breakfast doesn't start until 8 a.m. Still, I took advantage of it several times.

I'll be back next year!

Room Tip: The large family rooms with kitchen are a really good deal.

Great pricing for a sizable and comfortable room, couch had pullout, extra sheets/blankets in room with good towel service, located very close to the ice park, excellent continental breakfast (waffles, eggs, cereal, doughnuts, bagels, english muffins, cookies, juice, coffee, bread) and very friendly owners who went the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction. Will only consider this hotel for future (as in next month) trips to Ouray. There's also a hot tub for those chilly nights.

Last year I stayed at the Riverside Inn & Cabins when I went to Ouray to go ice climbing. I stayed in one of the little cabins and it was hard to keep it warm enough in there because you have to use communal bathrooms and showers and each time you open the door you let all the heat out. This year I tried River's Edge instead and it was wonderful. They have a very reasonably priced room with a kitchenette and private bathroom, the heater kept it nice and toasty, the room was incredibly clean with updated decor, and the innkeepers were very nice people. They have a great breakfast (AMAZING fresh-baked cookies!), nice hot tubs, and the hotel grounds are very well maintained. I will definitely be going back to River's Edge next year and highly recommend it.
