We stayed at the RIver's Edge for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The room was perfect, very quiet, located right on the river, and loved the hot springs on site that we used every night. The owners are great and very attentive to our needs. The town is quiet and people are friendly. We hiked to two falls and saw a lot of wildlife while there. We will be making another trip soon.

Stayed here for two nights in May 2013. Property is next to the Uncompahgre River. The grounds are inviting and well maintained, with lawn, tables and chairs (and do-it-yourself barbeque stations) and hot tub. Rooms are in two blocks around a parking lot. Room entry is from an outside corridor, and the large window in the room faces that corridor and parking lot (if you are on a first floor room, you may not have a lot of privacy if you leave the curtains open). There is another small window in the room facing behind the property. We had a king room, which was spacious and had nice furnishings and a comfortable bed, coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. Vanity was in the room instead of in the bathroom. Free wifi. Breakfast was a carbfest (would have appreciated some protein and dairy). Proprietors have put a lot of TLC into this property and it shows. Would stay here again.

Love...Love...Love The River's Edge. We just stayed one night in Ouray, we usually stay at Box Canyon, but lucky for us they were booked. What a pleasant surprise River's Edge was. Fantastic location, very clean and amazing grounds. The owners were very friendly as well! We will be back!

After checking around for a motel we came to River's Edge and was very pleased with the choice. We were offered a choice of several rooms and chose the upstairs with 2 Queen Beds. Very comfortable bed with lots of pillows. Plenty of room with microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker. Breakfast was everything we needed with waffles. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return to this well run Motel if ever in Ouray again. A very short walk to main street and was nice to hear the river running right outside the room.

Where to start....? Our hotel room was IMMACULATE! We only stayed 2 days and wow! You can tell the guys who run this place keep a tight ship and it is a labor of LOVE! We visited in April and as a Colorado gardener I KNOW this hotel's grounds are going to be STUNNING come the summer season! I can't wait to come back! The folks who run this place are super friendly and really define the words "hospitality" This hotel is 5 STAR service with a 2 star price- thanks guys! Our stay was awesome!

Room Tip: Hot tub on site, near downtown., no pool but beautiful riverfront are! really clean rooms- great hos...

The rate was excellent and the accommodations were very nice. This was my first stay at the Rivers Edge, I was very impressed with the value. The staff was very helpful. The accommodations were spacious and clean. The location is very good, although it is hard to not have a good location in Ouray! I recommend it.

Beautiful location in the center of town. Close to everything, yet quiet and relaxing. Nice rooms with great features. Very clean, well maintained and charming. The staff is awesome. Friendly and informative with knowledge of the area. Hot Tub to relax and star gaze! Will return.

Room Tip: End rooms by the river are great!
