We spent 3 days at the River's Edge Motel while exploring the San Juan Mountains (especially the Dallas Divide area). The motel was great, price very reasonable, plus a good breakfast thrown in for free (they had a do-it-yourself waffle maker). Although the eating area was a little cramped, there was nothing cramped about our room. And, what can I... More

What a wonderful little gem at a reasonable price! My sisters and I stayed in room 23 which had two queen beds, a couch, sitting area and small kitchenette. The rooms were very clean and the grounds immaculate. Within walking distance of everything in Ouray and right next to the river. We did not eat the breakfast as we wanted... More

A very nice room, OK breakfast much the same as anywhere else we stayed, the owners were very pleasant, and I would choose to stay again if I were to visit Ouray. Certainly NOT noisy nor was the room small as per some reviews. We had 2 Queen beds. Make sure you book ahead, it was totally full the night... More

Stayed here for 1 night by myself which was a good thing because the room was quite small and would have been too small for 2 people with luggage. Convenient location in Ouray, within walking distance of restaurants, bars, stores. Included breakfast was good but the breakfast room was too small for the number of people staying at the motel...

This is our favorite place to stay in Ouray, we always spend a couple of weeks here every fall. We enjoy the beautiful setting next to the river as well as the very convenient location. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Everything is within walking distance and one of the RV parks is just across the river, which makes it... More

Stayed here for one night. Lovely location by the river and beautiful flowers on the property. My major complaint however is the level of noise that can be heard between the rooms. When anyone ran any water it was like they were in the room with you! Luckily we always bring a white noise machine just in case.

We chose this place based on reviews and were not disappointed. It is not the best place but was very good in many ways. And for the price we paid compared to much higher priced hotels in town, I believe we received a good value. Bed was very comfortable. Our room was a little old and in need updates but... More

We stayed in the wheelchair accessible room since that was the only one left when we made our reservation. The best part was we got the roomy handicap parking spot for our 'new' 2006 Toyota Tundra. The room was quite large and comfortable - with a couch and small desk. Better rooms would be on the 2nd floor with views... More
