Reviewed October 1, 2011

The Rivers Edge is a great place to stay. The landscaping was beautiful and the scenery breath taking. The owners, Dave and Chad, make you feel more like friends then customers. The accomidations were always clean, with excellent attention to detail. The location of the motel removes you from the bustle from the main street in Ouray, but is with in easy walking distance of the downtown. The fresh chocolate chip cookies served at breakfet are outstanding. We were not traveling with our dogs, but the Rivers Edge is pet friendly. We may very well bring Bella next year. All in all you can't go wrong staying at the Rivers Edge. We cant wait for next year.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room in the main building it was fantastic.

This was our second stay. Came back because we were so happy with Chad and Dave and the way they run the hotel. Stayed 10 days last year and 2 weks this year. These guys are on the job 24/7 and are very helpful if you need anything. The accomodations are clean, nice and reasonably priced. Highly recommend this if you are going to Ouray. Can not wait to go back, we have already made our reservations for 2012.

I've been vacationing in Ouray for the past two years. What a beautiful place, friendly people and the hosts at Rivers Edge always make my stay memorable. The Innkeepers ensure that you will enjoy your visit by making you feel so welcome and a part of the friendliness that just exists at the R-E. The grounds are immaculate, rooms outstanding and the free breakfast make this place worth checking into. The hot tub was very enjoyable(open 24 hours), very clean and the temp was perfect all the while visiting with fellow travelers. If you like to be lulled to sleep by a rushing river, great scenery and a sense of belonging, the Rivers Edge is the place for you. I will be back next year for sure. Thanks Dave and Chad!

Room Tip: Room 31 and 29

Wow! Two nights, very clean, friendly, accomodating, ATTENTION to detail! I read several reviews, and agree with EVERYTHING that was said POSITIVE!, the ONLY regret and problem with the R-E Motel, is, we were'nt able to STAY there longer! Beautiful grounds, and would say ( without staying at the others), that this is the best choice! For many reasons, I mean, THIS PLACE is what Ouray is about! When me and my wife go back, we plan on bringing others with us, and even though You go to places like this to see, and do other things, it's nice to stay at a place that over delivers, and makes You want to go back at the end of the day,... and happy You're there, when You wake up....NOW, Breakfast!! They have something for everyone, AND, even outdoor sitting areas, if You just want to enjoy the beauty... Did I mention YOU'RE by the RIVER!!!! If You're going to Ouray, don't look at the price You're paying to be somewhere else... LOOK AT THE PRICE YOU'LL PAY, IF YOU DON'T STAY HERE!!! These guys care about YOU...! Bottom line, on a scale of 1-10, they are an 8--- You see, a 9 would be living there Year- round, and a 10 would be HEAVEN! ---It's as close as You'll get............ Ben Garcia - Sept 21-22 stay

Room Tip: Just listen to what they recommend... they will guide You in the right direction...

We stayed here a week in late August and look forward to staying at Rivers Edge again next year. There is no better location in Ouray. You are one block from beautiful downtown Ouray, yet the grounds are quiet with only sounds of the river rushing outside your window. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous with lots of lush plants and flowers. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Don't expect luxurious, but do expect a spotless, well-kept room, with attention to important details - i.e., coffee maker, microwave, good showerhead with good water pressure, television, internet. Had we not had reservations in Montana, we would have stayed another week! One pleasant surprise was the great continental breakfast. We are accustomed to the continental breakfast served in most chain hotels - you will get so much better here! Freshly baked, warm chocolate chip cookes, boiled eggs, waffles, and good selection of breads, juices, condiments were worth getting up for. The pleasant breakfast room next to the office was also a great place to meet other guests and compare notes on adventures in the area, restaurants, etc. The most gracious hosts, Chad and Dave, were always on hand to answer questions about the area. They live on-site and are willing to do whatever is needed to make a guest's stay perfect. They even have a washer and dryer on the premises for guest use, and also a hot tub. What more could you need?

Room Tip: Room #30 is the best!

We had a clean, quiet, and comfortable room upstairs. Enjoyed sitting by the river. It was so peaceful after a day of travel or hiking. The motel is located within easy walking distance to food and shopping but secluded from traffic noise. The friendly owners are on site and are readily available for questions/recommendations. And who would complain about freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for breakfast? We extended our stay and were glad we did.
