I would not suggest this place for couples. The floor/ceiling is not very soundproof. We heard everything from the room above us, including what seemed like a normal volume phone conversation in the morning. Also, if finding other people's hair in the shower when you check into a room bothers you, get over it. The bed was one of the... More

My friend and I stayed at the Rivers Edge in Ouray for New Years. We had an amazing time! The owners were so friendly and gave us so many great referrals around town for places to eat and go for New Years Eve. Our rooms were clean, a hot breakfast was ready for us every morning. It was like staying... More

I ended up staying in motel for several extra days when I got the stomach flu as my family headed out on backcountry ski trip. The owners were wonderful to me, checking on me and making sure I had what I needed because my family took our car. Wonderful place for short or extended stay! Can walk to everything -... More

Returning from Arizona to Grand Junction, Co I decided to drive back via Ouray. I wanted to see the place called the "Switzerland" of America and I had also heard of the "million dollar highway" that I had to check it out. I was not disappointed. Looking over the choices for lodging, I wanted to stay in town so I... More

Lovely setting and gardens, right on the river. Our room was so comfortable, clean and quiet, a bit tight but we had quite a bit of gear. Our excitement was the midnight raid of greedy bears at the dumpster on the side of the building, a sow and her two cubs. That caused our dog to give a couple hearty... More

The room we were given was more like a mother-in-law suite. Quite nice and homey. We had wifi in our room. The beds were comfortable. The owners are friendly. The breakfast offered both hot and cold food.

We stayed in the lodge, our family stayed in the motel units. Our room in the lodge was very clean but quite cramped, with a very low ceiling. Bathroom was quite small. Had to turn the aircon off during the night as it as quite noisy. Parking was great, and we had a large vehicle. Nice to sit in the... More

My wife and I have driven through Ouray in the past but this time we decided to spend the night. We were greeted with a family of deer crossing the street...at the cross walk. We turned down that street stopped at River's Edge. The nightly rate was reasonable, the grounds were impeccably groomed. Definitely run by people that care about... More

Ouray is a small town so I guess there are not many places to stay. River's Edge motel was a good choice for me as it offered reasonable rates. With tax, I paid around $90 for a night during the end of Sept. The room & bath were spotless. I stayed here for 4 nights. They changed bed sheets everyday.... More
