Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs
Ranked #5 of 15 Hotels in Ouray
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 24, 2014

My girlfriend and I went here for our spring break vacation and were thoroughly impressed with this hotel. The hot springs are warm and inviting, with two of them having a view at night to die for. The room was rustic and well cleaned/kept with plenty of room for having 4 people stay comfortably in their double queen rooms. The outside of the hotel and the grounds are extremely well kept and actually look exactly like they do in the professional pictures posted. Then, there is the area that it is in. It resides right at the head of the major hiking trail to the box canyon water falls and the ice park, which are amazing. My girlfriend and I spent an entire day hiking up there and loved every second of it from the views to the challenge. Overall the staff are helpful, warm and inviting. One night I spent 40 minutes in the main office just talking to them when I went to for some coffee before heading out to the hot springs. Overall this hotel blew me and my girlfriend away by its affordability and what you get for that price. Between the location, the rooms, the amenities and the staff, I will stay here every time I come to Ouray and I'll be back soon from what the town is like in general.

Room Tip: The rooms by the hot springs are the best, because on a cold night the walk while cold is bitter.

Dear Robertwk2014,

Ouray is indeed one of the most spectacular places to visit. Located as we are in the southwest corner of this tiny community, The Box Canyon Lodge is ideal for those interested in exploring the area.
Our goal is to provide every guest with clean, comfortable rooms and excellent service.
We take pride in our town, and property, and it is always pleasing to hear that this shines through to our guests in the appearance of the grounds.
After a long day hiking the area and exploring, our four mineral hot spring tubs are a perfect way to relax before heading out to dinner then settling in for a nice movie from our video library.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent visit with us, and we look forward to many more visits in the future.

Best Regards,

Karen Avery

Traveled through for work and stayed here. On the road quite a bit I don't often review smaller enterprises, some smaller motels can be lacking in amenities, however I was pleasantly surprised. My room had a small fridge, room to work and spread out. Quiet corner room was peaceful. The staff were very accommodating and pleasant! They even suggested to take a break and check out some local spots - which turned out to be everything they said it was. Great little restaurants and bars within walking distance. Note, if you are not use to the elevation instead of walking straight up and down roads, take left to right through the residential area, it reduces the effect.
All in all I would stay again.

Dear RoadWarriorInHeels,

It is such a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us in beautiful Ouray, Colorado!

Whether travelling for work or for fun, we strive to exceed the expectations of every guest. Clean, comfortable rooms and awesome scenery provide a perfect spot for guests to relax after a long day.
Our staff takes immense pride in both the property and our home, Ouray, and will always provide a variety of options for travelers to experience as much of the area as possible.
At over 7500 feet, it is easy to become winded. We try to recommend our guests drink plenty of water and to be mindful of the thinner air, particularly when visiting from much lower altitudes.
I am so glad you were able to take the advice of our front desk agent and explore the area a little bit! Hopefully, we will see you again when you have more time to experience the beauty of the San Juan Mountains!

Best Regards,

Karen Avery

Dear angel1771,

It's funny how sometimes we find a hidden gem virtually in our back yard.

I am so glad you made it up here to spend some time with us!

Ouray is an amazingly beautiful town. Set in the southwest corner, it is easy to feel transported into a different ere when staying with us.

Our four mineral hot spring tubs are an ideal way to relax away the worries of the outside world while still being within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Main Street in one direction, and hiking and ice climbing trails in the other.

We strive to exceed the expectations of our guests in every way, and our pride in being able to share this beautiful area and wonderful property shines through in every interaction.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of our property. We look forward to seeing a lot of you now that you have gotten a taste!

Best Regards,

Karen Avery

Last summer we did a big trip all over CO, and found ourselves in Ouray. Probably one of the most adorable and friendly and picturesque towns I've ever encountered. Some quick exploring brought us to this hotel, and we were not disappointed. The only time in my life I've made a reservation for one night ... then extended it to two nights ... then three ... and the staff was so awesome and accomodating and hooked me up with a good rate for each night. The tubs were awesome. Mostly I have to keep saying the staff were so friendly - each one we encountered at the front desk was friendlier than the next. The rooms were comfy and cozy and they provide free DVDs, a nice touch. They make fresh muffins in the am which were delish. Can't wait to return!
