“Ouray magic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Build in 1893, the Ouray Hotel is well maintained and clean. It's located downtown, so one can easily walk to most locations in town. Hotel management is friendly and accommodating. It has a quaint appeal. Parking is reserved for guests and is convenient. I highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Ouray.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. You normally don't need to worry about noise because the town tends to shut...

The Ouray Hotel's location is perfect for easy access to all intown activities! Parking right out front, side road, is convenient, but you do have to climb 22 stairs as the check-in and rooms are
all on the 2nd floor. You really do feel like you are checking in to an 1800s hotel...except that bathrooms have been added. Believe the streetside rooms all have windows, but some of the
non-street side rooms just have the windows over the entrance doors....my window was in the
bathroom and looked out over the back entrance to yet another building....

I had room #2, with double bed, shower.....quite comfortable, not noisy at all........I loved it. I walked EVERYWHERE from here, including all the local hiking trails.

Room Tip: ASk for a room with a window on the street.....I think.... but then, how much time do you really spe...

The hotel is in the center of town and within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, and hiking trails. We had a corner room and never heard any guests. What's more, the town basically shuts down at 10 pm and thus noise was never a problem.

The owner, Dale, was incredibly helpful in ensuring we enjoyed both his hotel and the hiking opportunities in the area. He went above and beyond in giving tips, and we ended up doing the Ouray Perimeter Trail one day and climbing a 14er (Mt Sneffels) the next.

A much better stay than being in a chain hotel.

We stayed in room 4 for two nights. The room was so small that our door hit the bed as we walked in. Most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel. Could hear other guests in the hall from inside our shut up room, loud and clear! I could hear telephone conversations from the room next door. And I don't believe anyone was yelling. The walls are just that thin. No curtains on the windows, just blinds making it very light inside our room from the hallway lighting. Bathrooms floor was slanted.
But on a good note, the service was great. Friendly owner. And the hotel was very clean.

Ouray Hotel is right in the middle of downtown. The pricing is incredibly reasonable. The building is very old, so the rooms had a lot of character.
The only downside of this hotel is that you can hear every guest's door open and close- so this hotel may not be for the light sleeper.

This place is awesome! All people interested in architecture, history, all things Colorado should check this place out. Victorian styled, very clean, and centrally located. The hotel is quiet and I had the best sleep I have had in years. Way cool skylight. Best place to stay in Ouray, in my opinion. Dale is extremely interesting to talk to and very helpful with places to eat and visit. Wish I could have stayed longer. Definitely will be a repeat visit. Ouray is called the "Switzerland of America" with good reason. Plenty to do and see for all whether you like hot springs, hiking, water falls, 4x4 with spectacular scenery. Taking a day trip to Silverton is a must. Highway 550 between Silverton and Ouray quite possibly the most scenic highway in America.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner room for great views.
