We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well run motel. The motel is very clean. It's located near the main street of Ouray alongside a creek. The grounds are very nicely landscaped with chairs and benches overlooking the stream. The owners are very much in evidence and work hard to see their guests are happy. We'll be back.

A great local motel - perfect for our stay in Ouray. We stayed four nights, late summer. The rooms were a great size, had comfortable beds and nice quality bedding. Loved that they had a fan available in the room as we prefer the fan to A/C especially when the nights are cooler in the high country. Our room also...

Good central location, friendly efficient management with good eye for detail for every comfort. Clean hot tubs, gorgeous garden, good breakfast, clean rooms. Great location. Would definitely go there again - very reasonably priced.

We really enjoyed our stay at River's Edge. It truly is right on the river (unlike some places who say they are near the water, but you can barely see the river, ocean, etc.)The property is beautifully landscaped and they have wonderful hanging baskets everywhere. They are one block off the main street so it is very quiet. The owners...

This is a basic motel in a great location. The hotel receptionist was very nice and helpful. The hot tubs stay open 24 hours, which is really nice. They are located a few yards from the river, so very pleasant experience. In addition, the motel grounds are lovely, with lots of flowers. On the negative side, the rooms are very...

We stayed at this hotel with my family in the late 80's and early 90's, which was special as we normally stayed at Motel 6 and other low end places. Planning a trip to the area with my family, I was so excited to see the hotel still existed and had grown and been refurbished. We stayed in a Family...

This little motel has a great location in Ouray and the man who runs it is awesome. He sent us to a great jeep tour and loaned us a blanket to keep warm. He was very accommodating. That being said, no in room coffee is for me, a big minus, as is a cold breakfast that's supposed to be hot....

We had no idea how beautiful this little motel would be. We got lucky with Cabin #30, where we had east and north windows facing the Uncompaghre River-we slept with windows open to hear the river. The room was very spacious, with accommodations for six people. Very clean, with both a front and back door opening to porch seating. Tasty...

We enjoyed our stay at Rivers Edge, even though it was a rainy period for the area. We looked forward to our stay in a room by the river and falling asleep to the sound of the river flowing by. Our only complaint is the room we selected was also a very small room with a king-sized bed. We had...

Clean and quiet in an incredible setting! Accommodations close to the river / creek with impeccable gardening. The rooms are, very, clean, and quiet. They are "Semi- dog friendly" relative to our travel experience. A great choice for a quick visit. We enjoy Ouray very much!
