You LIED about my daughter and I in response to our review of your over- priced, pathetic customer experience, miserable hotel. You are without a doubt, the MOST arrogant, undeserving owners of a hotel I’ve EVER encountered ! To put it bluntly, you have e NO BUSINESS OWNING OR RUNNING this beautiful building. And STOP LYING to the public on trip advisor! BEASTS!
My husband and I decided to visit Cortez, Durango, Ouray, Moab, UT, and Springdale, UT over our Christmas vacation. We had not yet chosen our hotel in Ouray, but we saw the Beaumont and stopped to check availability…boy are we glad we did! This is a beautiful hotel (we stayed in the Dove Suite)! It is rich in history, conveniently located, SPOTLESS, and has the best staff (especially Maria). If you are looking for a great place to stay in Ouray, book the Beaumont hotel, you will not be sorry!I
Really nice old hotel that has been nicely restored. Be prepared for a lot of rules such as what you can touch, sit on, etc. No big deal but just be aware that it’s sort of like being in a museum. Also, sort of runs like a b&b without the breakfast. Check in hours limited to 4-9. No bell service. Again, not a big deal for me. Staff was really friendly upon check in and it was nice to provide a little take away snack for breakfast. Enjoyed stay and would love to come back.
We stayed on the 3rd floor in the Bluebird room which is the only room we were told was not resized from the original build. This hotel is incredible in the way it was refurbished and I loved the history! We were told upon arrival it's the warmest room and currently the air conditioning was off for the season. So be prepared to shut off the heat all together. If you don't open the windows during the day and put the ceiling fan on the updraft setting, it'll get up to 80°F! And throw a pillow against the door along the floor or the wind will whistle loudly and keep you awake! Otherwise, beautiful place to stay!
This was our 3rd stay at the Beaumont. The property was refurbished in 2010 to model the original hotel. It is very well done. Staff is very friendly and helpful but limited due to Covid. No bell service. Operates more like a B&B than hotel. Most expensive hotel/motel in Ouray. However, the ambiance makes it worth the extra money.
Awesome time, surpassed our expectations, the care takers were awesome, and set us of to experience the most interesting things to do in the area, hotel was right in then center of things in Ouray. They also made all of our dinner reservations. We will definitely stay again.
Great hotel to stay at to be steeped in history. Perfect location in downtown Ouray and easy parking on the side of the hotel. We stayed in the Skylight Suite which was nice and had a large bathroom with shower and clawfoot tub. If you’re light sensitive, do be aware that the skylights are pretty large and let a lot of early morning light in. There was also an ongoing squeaking sound throughout the night that made it hard to sleep. Staff seemed nice enough although the check-in felt a little brusque. However, seeing all the history in the hotel was certainly a highlight!
PLEASE PLEASE BE ADVISED! If you don’t have money to flush down the toilet, do NOT USE this hotel. It is a very lovely building, very historic and nicely decorated. We would have left a good review …….. IF the OWNER had not enforced a $35 COLLECTION FEE because we couldn’t GET to their hotel by 9:00 PM!!!! I even phoned the front desk DAYS in advance to let them know we wouldn't be able to get there by a particular time, as we had a tour earlier that day in Sedona Arizona, and would not be able to leave there and drive those dangerous roads to get to their establishment by ANY predetermined time. You cannot predict driving time on the extremely dangerous roads that lead to Ouray CO. This hotel CHARGES you if you arrive after 9:00PM! They don’t care WHAT your reason is! If you have an emergency or anything (avalanche!) TOO BAD FOR YOU! This hotel also ABSOLUTELY will not accept any reason for cancellations. NONE! Even a DAY AFTER you make your reservation! Even if it’s far in advance! We made ours 3 weeks in advance. You BETTER not have ANYTHING happen that requires you to cancel — including reading, and then disagreeing with, their long list of “we will CHARGE YOU if this happens”! I am STILL in disbelief that the owner thinks it’s OK to PUNISH a TRAVELER — who could stay at any other number of hotels —- for arriving at HER hotel after 9:00 pm. All they did was leave a key in an envelope, on the front desk! No one was “put out”! (Except us — driving horribly curvy, steep drop roads with no guard rail.) The NERVE of this owner astounds me. REALLY! By the way— you will have to use your room key to get INTO THE FRONT door of this hotel every time you go in or out— SO….. if you have to make several trips to pack your belongings into your car to leave, you better hope you don’t have the same new employee at the front desk that we had. She made us hand her the key, so we were forced to drag out too many things in one trip on our our last load instead of just making another trip. YET ANOTHER INCONVENIENCE! In dreary hot weather there we were — dragging multiple bags on our shoulders, and pulling multiple suitcases. NICE! Thanks! This hotel already charges more than it should — $400 + a night (after all those nice little fees are added!!!) But for THAT amount of money- you’d think you would get SOME KIND of decent breakfast. NO! You’ll get a tiny little bag with a cheap dried out packaged muffin, a tiny tangerine, and a granola bar! Thanks but no thanks! The manger told me they actually “dropped their prices” to make up for the “GOVT forbidding them to give a real breakfast”!!!!! THATS RIDICULOUS! We’ve traveled all over the US since last summer, and EVERYONE ELSE is making breakfast “DARLING OWNER” !!! (NOT darling) I sure as heck didn’t see any price drop! It’s wayyyyy over priced to begin with! You know— I could go on and on— especially about the manager just REPEATING HERSELF OVER AND OVER to me I the phone — like a ROBOT who is PROGRAMMED to say what the GREEDY OBNOXIOUS OWNER TOLD her to say - instead of UNDERSTANDING there are times to make EXCEPTIONS!!!!! I WARN YOU THE READER—- if you aren’t a VANDERBILT, or WARREN BUFFET—- DO NOT attempt to stay in this MONEY TRAP, UNFAIR FEE-FILLED, hotel. You’ll be as SORRY as we are SURLY ARE! I’ve never left a review like this before. I hope I never have to again! I’m still very angry at ALL the twisted principles that are broken with how this place runs. Reminder to the “OWNER”….. Your COMPETION IS STIFF LITTLE LADY!!!!!!!! I DO NOT wish you a future of prosperity with your attitudes and poor decisions on treatment of your patrons!…
Stayed for 2 nights, beautiful hotel however the staff did not seem interested to be there. The website was mis-leading and implied that the garden area is open to guests however the staff informed our party of 6 that the garden is only reserved for special events. The same reply was given when we asked to see the parlor and bar area of the hotel. No coffee or simple guest amenities were available or put out for guests. I would not stay here again, there's better options in Ouray.
Ouray is a great place but simply stated-find somewhere else to stay as we were highly disappointed in the Beaumont. We do wish to thank the management for providing our free take breakfast which must have costed $2 each and for the six chocolates each the size of a dime which we were charged $15. For $1200 for a three night stay, you can definitely do better.
