“Did Not Want to Leave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2005

This is the best hotel stay I have had in years. Beautiful lobby, helpful and friendly staff, Awesome views. The mini suite is perfect. The bedroom is as big as my own at home and the cleanliness was outstanding. The little kitchenette area was perfect and there were two TV sets. This place is warm, cozy, and the hot springs are memorable. Many GREAT restaurants within walking distance.

As good as advertised in the Trip Advisor Reviews. Ouray is truly fantastic and this is the best location in town. The hot springs are wonderful and you are a walk away from the Box Canyon trail. You can also walk to town. Yet it is still very quiet. The rooms are typical for a hotel of this class but they are very clean and comfortable. Go to Ouray!

Gold in them, there hills - at the Box Canyon Lodge on 3rd Ave in Ouray. This is an absolute gem and, often full, but worth the wait. We were fortunate to lodge here after a real bum deal (see my review of Alpenglow in Ouray). We wanted a full suite with a kitchen and one was available (do to a cancellation). The suite (128) was wonderful appointed (fireplace, nice kitchen but w/o an oven - full cooktop, microwave and nice refrigerator, all cooking needs present) and clean. Two wonderful beds (Posture-Pedics with a soft type top and comfortable), queen, a large two basin bath with shower/tub - just nice and very "woodsy". Only a short walk to the Box Canyon Falls and the 'ice park'. Be sure to check out the 'vapor caves' and the 'old' St. Elmo B&B in town. Great victorian ambiance.

TV and high speed wireless were a plus. The Lodge's own hot spring tubs are wonderful and well kept,clean and relaxing! A short walk and you are immersed into the natural mineral waters of this area. Just enjoy.

Carol, Terry, Travis, his wife and family make this a special place to stay in the old mining town of Ouray. The one or two needs we had were immediately attended to and you are made to feel special. GREAT place, wonderful town. Enjoy the Box Canyon Lodge, we did.
