“Chad and Dave rolled out the red carpet for our wedding guests!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

We booked the entire motel for out of town wedding guests and from the initial booking a year in advance until the final Sunday breakfast after the wedding we were treated with respect, patience, friendliness and hospitality beyond believe!! Chad and Dave are the best!! The location by the river allowed us to host a Friday picnic...imagine all of your family on a beautifully landscaped shady lawn beside the Uncompahgre River watching the sun set on Red Mountain above Ouray. The rooms were freshly painted with new carpet and air conditioning and each room had it's own charming character. There are lovely decks and patios with spectacular views and let's not forget the warm chocolate chip cookies at breakfast!! Affordable, special, memorable...best in Ouray!!

This is a fantastic place to stay. ran by two great guys who cannot do enough for you. Our room was wonderfully decorated, incredibly clean with a wonderfully comfortable bed. There is an outdoor hot tub, right next to the river. Ouray is amazing, perhaphs the best place I have visited since moving to this great state 4 years ago. If you go to Ouray, stay at the Rivers Edge. World class.

The proprietors were friendly, helpful and took real pride in their Inn. Our room met all of our needs. It was spacious, comfortable and very clean. We loved our stay at River's Edge and hope to visit again next summer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the kitchenette room and it was roomy and very clean.

Our stay at the River's Edge was just about perfect. We've stayed in Ouray before and thought we'd try the River's Edge, for our four nights in Ouray. The grounds were immaculate and there were flowers everywhere. The owners couldn't have been any more cordial and helpful, and the room was quiet, newly decorated, and comfortable. Plus, they are very dog friendly! We will stay here again!

We were recently in Ouray, Co. and stayed at the Rivers Edge Motel. The owners went
out of their way to make sure that everything was perfect and all our needs were met.
They even had hot chocolate chip cookies being served with their waffles and their
continental breakfast. We will definitely go back and spend some time there. They also
have larger rooms with kitchenettes for long-term visits. Beautiful grounds with blooming
plants everywhere even covering walkways. Easy walk into the downtown area.

We had a pleasant 3 day stay at this facility in June 2011 on the banks of the river. Decent (but crowded) breakfast. Easy 1 block walk to the main street. Rooms were large and tidy. We didn't need the AC so don't know how it works. Outdoor hot tub was somewhat overused by kids resulting in cloudy water. Staff removed kids in evening for adults. Had a minor dispute after checking out but it was quickly resolved. We'd certainly stay there again.

We had a group of 4 couples in the area and when we called for rooms, Dave, the owner, was very accommodating. Not only did he let us check in a little early, but he gave us a great deal. We had to leave early the next morning before their regularly scheduled breakfast so the night before, he gave us some extra coffee packets plus a breakfast bag to help us get on our way. He made us feel like part of the family!
