“Keeps getting better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

This was my third stay at Dave and Chads mountain get away. They have added air conditioners and new carpet to all the rooms. Like always they treat you like family, never acting like you are bother with any request. Rooms and the property are very quiet. Spend some time on the property and you will make new friends and get the latest 4X4 trail updates. I timed my walk to the grocery store, just under 5 minutes. The only bad thing this trip was the weather, I had planned on spending a day sitting outside enjoy the view of the mountains but the weather didn't cooperate. This is a great place to stay if you plan of doing some off roading. Most of the trips are an easy half day except for Blackbear. If you don't feel up to driving yourself, San Juan tours is less than a minutes walk and worth the price. I plan on going back next September.
They deserve your business and never take your business for granted.

We love this place! This was our third year staying at the Rivers Edge, and even though we
had a travel trailer this year, we still wanted to make a stop at this wonderful motel. Our dog is
always welcome, and the innkeepers are so friendly, hard-working and attentive. The complimentary breakfast is great, and the rooms are always clean and well-maintained. We
will definitely be back!

I made reservations for the Rivers Edge based on it's good reviews. When we arrived we were surprised by the large room which included a small kitchen and dining area and a nice sized sleeping area. My first impression was that the room was definitely not cozy or welcoming but, for the price, I didn't expect the Ritz. I expect two things from a hotel/motel room...that it is clean and I can get a good night's sleep. The room was clean. But the beds were a huge problem. They had those floral covers on them that don't show dirt and you never know when they were last washed. The sheets were slightly greying poly and the pillows were flat little pancakes. That bed was the hardest bed we have ever tried to sleep on and neither of us got much sleep as a result. It was impossibly hard and we both had backaches by morning. The hotel itself had lovely baskets of flowers everywhere and the location is excellent. We didn't have our little dog along but loved that dogs were welcome in the hotel. The owners get points for that alone. This is the first bad review I have ever written and I don't like doing it but since I and many others rely on these reviews when choosing a place to stay, I feel it is necessary. I am mystified that we are the only guests that found the beds impossibly hard and so uncomfortable it affected our ability to sleep. We stayed in room #23 and perhaps they have different bedding...? We found the restaurants of Ouray average or below but that is not the reason for visiting beautiful Ouray. Hint to the owners-charge 20 bucks more and provide cotton sheets and a down like conforter with a white freshly washed duvet cover. It would magically change the look and feel of the room. Oh, and a softer mattress please!!

The Rivers Edge is a great place to stay. The landscaping was beautiful and the scenery breath taking. The owners, Dave and Chad, make you feel more like friends then customers. The accomidations were always clean, with excellent attention to detail. The location of the motel removes you from the bustle from the main street in Ouray, but is with in easy walking distance of the downtown. The fresh chocolate chip cookies served at breakfet are outstanding. We were not traveling with our dogs, but the Rivers Edge is pet friendly. We may very well bring Bella next year. All in all you can't go wrong staying at the Rivers Edge. We cant wait for next year.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room in the main building it was fantastic.
