“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

If you're looking for clean, affordable lodging in Ouray, this place is a good option. We booked a Last Minute Special through their website, and our room was worth the $70/night rate. Nothing particularly fancy. Our room was a regular queen room and was cozy but clean that featured lodge-style furniture.

No in-room iron or hair dryer. (My wife was able to secure a hair dryer at the front desk.) And remember those little bottles of shampoo you took from the Hilton Garden Inn in Santa Monica last year because you liked them so much? Yeah, you'll be wanting to bring those with you -- there's nothing in the way of soap, shampoo or conditioner except for a convenience store bathroom-type soap dispenser in the shower.

All in all, though, we were pleased and we'd definitely stay here again! Super friendly staff and the breathtaking views that Ouray is famous for!

I came out to Ouray for a couple of weeks to do some hiking in the area. I recently graduated from grad school and wanted some time to decompress. I found riverside on the internet and stayed in a camper cabin. It was perfect to use as my base camp to do as much hiking in the area as possible. The cabin was very comfortable and very relaxing having the river to listen to every-night falling asleep. The staff was awesome as well.. I cant tell you how friendly everyone was and what such incredible customer service was has every day I was there. i will definitely be coming back when I come back to Ouray!

We stayed here for two nights while in Ouray and we really enjoyed ourselves! The staff was unbelievably kind and helpful and very informative! The only drawback is that there was no firewood available of which we really wanted so we went into town to get it. It just would have been nice to have available there on site since we were there multiple days and just wanted a relaxing fire and a bottle of wine after hiking. But overall, this place was just fantastic!

Room Tip: Ask for a room along the water.....the sounds are just amazing!

We stayed in one of the very basic camping cabins. It was cozy and 'rustic', just what we expected. Very friendly staff and clean bathhouse. Cabins do face the parking lot, but the back of the cabin was picture perfect right along the river. It is far enough away from town to be away from the relative congestion, but close enough that a trip to the swimming pool is only minutes away. It is inexpensive and no frills, but that leaves money to enjoy all the other stuff there is to do.

I am still in the middle of the reservation. Staying in cabin #1 for $50.00 a night. I have read some of the reviews and what do people expect for $50.00 in Ouray the Switzerland of America? The cabins have heat and electricity you can't bet the price. The shower and bathroom facility are immaculate, not a simple task with the turn over. You can walk to town (one mile) on the level path. The owners are friendly and business like just what you would expect. In the area for colors,fishing and hiking. You can see in the photo a huge brown trout caught on the Uncompahgre in Ridgway State Park on a 4x fly rod. I am a happy camper....

Room Tip: Cabin #1 or #8, but not guranteed until arrival. Treat them like you would want to be treated and yo...

Looking for reasonably priced accommodations in the Ouray/Telluride area (which can be a challenge), we booked a Camping Cabin at Ouray Riverside Inn for $64 per night, plus $5 extra per night for our dog. From the property's website, it looked like the cabins were tucked beneath trees in a quiet setting along the Uncompaghre River. Photo angles can be deceiving! While our cabin did back to the river, its front porch faced the parking lot, as did most of the rest of the cabins that were packed tightly together facing the asphalt with cars and trucks moving in and out. I don't know why the cabins aren't positioned (with the exception of the large Black Bear Cabin) to face the river, rather than the parking lot and noise of the main highway just yards beyond.

The owners were friendly, the bathhouse clean, the cabin mattresses relatively comfortable and the heater was welcome on cold September nights, but we were glad we did not pay any more for these very basic accommodations. We had hoped at least for a woodsy setting, more of a 'camping' feel, but it was much more 'roadside motel.' That said, there is a nice 2-mile loop path along the river which is appealing if you are traveling with a dog. And if you are on a budget and don't want to mess with a tent, cookstove, etc., a simple cabin like this may be your best option in this high-priced area (though the surroundings are themselves worth every penny!)

Room Tip: If you are staying in a camping cabin, be sure to request one that backs to the river - they do not...

Their Jeeps are very well equiped, much better than any of the other rentals that we saw. They have lift kits, gnarly 33" tires and Detroit lockers in the rear all of which perfomed fantasticly on the trails. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was very nice and great value. We made use of the hot tub, grill and fire pit. Very cool. The staff was very kind, helpful and knowledgeable about the area and everything there is to do and see. Special thanks to Angela!
