If you are planning on staying in Ouray, I highly recommend the River's Edge Motel. My husband and I have stayed their twice, and the second time was even better than the first. The grounds are stunning. The owners make every guest feel welcome, including our dog.
The rooms are clean and comfortable, and there's really no comparison when it comes to the other hotel options in town. The location is great because it is a short walk to everything in town, and yet you're off the main highway for a quiet night's rest.
I have stayed in places twice as expensive that weren't half as nice. The owners, David and Chad, never seem to stop working, and their efforts show in a lovely place to stay in a lovely town. Stay at the River's Edge, you won't regret it.More
