“Amazing Winter Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

We decided to do something a little different for Christmas this past year, so we spent 4 days in Ouray, Colorado. It was absolutely beautiful. We stayed at the Ouray Victorian Inn and I don't think we'll stay anywhere else. We stayed in the family suite and it was very comfortable and clean. One of the best parts were all the hooks! There was enough space to hang all of our swim suits and towels after a few hours in the hot springs. And there are five of us! Jan and Brian were both wonderful and I was really glad to get to meet them both. Breakfast was a nice addition with lots of options. It is walking distance to the Box Canyon Waterfall and also to the canyon where the ice climbers are. There were lots of things to do for the kids. Some of them are free like sledding, ice skating (if you have your own skates) and a ski/snowboard hill with a towrope. In the winter Box Canyon Waterfall is also free. We will definitely be going back.

My husband and I just returned from a three night stay at Ouray Victoria Inn and we have nothing but great things to say,from freindly owners to helpful cleaning staff. very clean and quiet. The shower worked well and very easy to get to work. Ouray is a GREAT little town with friendly people. A must to visit and a must to stay. Love it and if the lord is willing we will be back.

Very clean, very comfortable, very friendly staff, all the basics, not particularly fancy. Nice curved shower rod, but an old 22" CRT TV. If you have a large, high-def flat screen at home, the TV is a bit of a let down. On the other hand, who goes to Ouray to watch TV?

We had a battery problem with our smoke detector (beeping every minute or so, indicating a low battery), and they were there to fix it within minutes.

Very nice place, would not hesitate to stay here again.

Note that if you stay here and are using a Garmin GPS, and you are coming into town from the north, you may get really bizarre directions -- at one point I considered flipping into 4-wheel drive on the steep, snow-packed roads. Ignore the Garmin: just stay on Main Street all the way through town, and turn right at the last street (3rd Avenue) before the road curves up the hill. There is a Best Western sign there, pointing the way. This inn is 50 yards past the Best Western.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor!

I highly recommend the Victorian---clean, quiet, well located, friendly staff and for you ice climbers, plenty of hot water to warm up after a cold day on the ice! I'll be back.

Visited Ouray to ice climb with a friend. He has stayed at the Victorian Inn on other trips and liked it.

It is a great little place a couple of blocks from downtown in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. I really appreciated the refrigerator and the coffee maker (I hope who ever cleans the room enjoys the cheese and apples I forgot ;) The hot water in the shower was fast and furious -- wonderful after a long day on frozen water. The rooms are large - I have lots of equipment to sort through and lay out - a frustrating process in a typical small room.

The owners are friendly and live in the hotel, obviously are focused on keeping the place well maintained and were even pleasant, though sleepy eyed when we checked out early in the morning. I highly recommend the hotel. I'll be a regular customer.

I went to Ouray to ice climb and picked this hotel on a friend's recommendation. I couldn't have been happier. The owners are very friendly and helpful with local recommendations for food, etc. (their dog is even friendlier -- a good sign the owners are good people, but the dog did mention that they were somewhat deficient in petting him and that pets and scratches would be very much appreciated).

The hotel is off the beaten path and quiet (downtown Ouray can get busy and boisterous) but close enough to walk to all the restaurants and stores in town. I really appreciated the thought that went into the room design. Ouray is a spot for people who love the outdoors and of course with the outdoors come dirty and wet clothes. There were LOTS of hooks strategically placed to hang clothes to dry and the room had a digital thermostat so you can easily adjust the temperature and airflow to get the drying process underway. The icing on the cake is a small basket with rags to help you clean your equipment.

The hotel is spotless and well cared for and I suspect it is because the owners live onsite and monitor the facility carefully. I couldn't have been happier with the quality and price.

One tip for a trip to Ouray -- bring a bathing suit regardless of the time of year. The town has a hot springs you can go soak in after a long day of adventure -- it is not to be missed.
