“Great time with Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2009

I love Ouray, and Box Canyon Lodge has very nice rooms at a great price. We were there on a Monday night, and the hot tubs were wonderful (very few people were using them, so we didn't have to wait for the tub of our choice, nor did we feel rushed). Polite, friendly customer service, too!

  • Liked — The view and the hot tubs

We have been coming to the hotel for 20 yrs. Everyone was friendly, the room was clean, but the temp in the room had to be 80 degrees. Slept all night with the windows open. Not sure I like the new seats in the hot tubs. Its hard to get 3-4 people in one tub. Still a nice place to go in the winter.

Stayed January 2009

Everything about our stay at Box Canyon Lodge was exemplary, from our first contact via phone to our check out. The lodge is attractive, well-maintained and comfortable. It has the charm of an older property but has been nicely updated. We stayed in a spacious king room with both a fridge and microwave which would have been convenient if our stay had been more than one night. There are several spring fed hot tubs on terraces up the hillside behind the lodge and we found the temperature to be perfect for soaking after a day of skiing. The staff is very attentive and outgoing, and was ready to help with dinner reservations or suggestions for activities. All in all a wonderful experience where we were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived. We highly recommend Box Canyon Lodge and will definitely return for a longer visit!

  • Liked — The staff
  • Disliked — The bed was "average."

I have been coming to the "BOX" since the late 1990's. It truly is my "Home away from home"! I'm usually there 16+ days/year.

The rooms are nicely decorated and IMMACULATE! They recycle. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hillside hot tubs (of hot springs water) are great and the view is spectacular!

I cannot say enough, I've traveled all over the world, stayed in incredible luxury resorts and this is the place that I love!

  • Liked — Charming, clean, friendly, spectacular views, hot tubs----
  • Disliked — I don't get there often enough!

We are frequent visitors to Ouray, mostly during the summer months when we will generally camp. This year we really wanted to experience Ouray during the winter and to see the Ice Park. Our first choice was the Box Canyon Lodge as we have heard wonderful things about your property. We found the process to make reservations easy and accomodating. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hot tubs were awesome! Well maintained and readily available. We will defnitely come to stay again. Thank you!

This really was a nice, cozy place. It has a personal touch, sort of a "mountain hotel" feel, and was very friendly. The rooms are heated with thermal heat from the springs (with backup electric if you need it, we didn't).

We were basically in and out because we were passing through, but the room has a DVD and a library of DVD's to choose from, good for the kids.

My only complaint is that the walls are not very thick, our neighbors had some drinks, and I could here some voices, luckily they turned in around bed time.

The hot tubs on the premises looked great, although we didn't use them.

  • Liked — cozy feel

The Box Canyon Lodge is a consistent favorite for our weekend ice climbing getaways. The beds are comfy and the quiet, hot, hill side tubs are always a pleasure after a long day of climbing.

  • Liked — Quiet and comfortable
  • Disliked — The upper deck hot tubs were closed for some reason
