“The only place we will stay”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

We frequent The Rivers Edge about 3 times a year. The owners have treated us like family from the first visit. There is a special charm about this place that seems to have travelers/vacationers behave more like neighbors and friends than tourist just passing through. The owners appreciate all their guest as I have watch plenty of interaction. Dont miss an opportunity to stay here, you would just be cheating yourself out of a wonderful experience.

We stayed here with our family of 5 (3 kids ages 7 & under) and it was perfect! The service (Dave was who we spoke with) was friendly, knowledgable & welcoming. The room was a 2-queen suite that's great for a family with plenty of wiggle room. The room was clean and the view next to the river was amazing. Excellent value too! Couldn't have been happier with our stay here!

Stayed for 3 nights May 14-17, 2013 on the shoulder season special rate after reading all the great reviews here. This little hotel is a gem. The buildings are neither historic nor beautiful, but with the setting by the river, lovely, well-cared for buildings and grounds, super, super clean rooms and hot tubs, and the very caring, hands-on, friendly owners Dave and Chad, the place definitely has (cliche following)---soul. Even the other guests, their dogs, and trespassing wildlife were friendly and mellow. And the super budget friendly price left money in the wallet for massages and a few other frills.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms give you and unobstructed sunrise views from outside your door.

Stayed here for a night on a last minute trip thru Ouray and so glad we did! We had a lower level room with one queen bed, which was very comfortable. The room was extremely clean and had a mini-fridge that was great to keep our beer from the Ouray Brewery nice and cold. Bathroom was very well lit and there were plenty of towels! A huge plus for us was this hotel is dog friendly and backs up to a large off leash dog park. The owners were very friendly and the grounds were well maintained and beautiful. Two clean hot tubs sit right on the river for a peaceful soak as well. The rooms come with a continental breakfast and amazing homemade cookies. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Ouray!

We were just traveling through Ouray staying the one night after traveling for several days. My sister had booked the motel for the four of us. Not sure what to expect when we drove up, we were pleasantly surprised at the rooms. they were large, with refrigerator and microwave and a table and twoo chairs as well as a sofa with losts of room to move around. The wood and paintings and furnishings as well as the bedspreads and pillows were so nice and well designed for the atmosphere of the western motiff. the free breakfast was fresh, with multiple choices and really tastey! the area was nice and clean and the owners kept it well stocked. the owners were the nicest guys and took great pride in the motel and it certainly looked like it. For a small town this is a great place to make a stop for a few days. We had a great tour at the falls and did a mining tour that was fabulous. would definitley go back if ever in the area again! Thanks guys!

Room Tip: choose the first building and the first floor as the rooms are larger and the hot tub is just feet a...

We stayed at the RIver's Edge for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The room was perfect, very quiet, located right on the river, and loved the hot springs on site that we used every night. The owners are great and very attentive to our needs. The town is quiet and people are friendly. We hiked to two falls and saw a lot of wildlife while there. We will be making another trip soon.

Stayed here for two nights in May 2013. Property is next to the Uncompahgre River. The grounds are inviting and well maintained, with lawn, tables and chairs (and do-it-yourself barbeque stations) and hot tub. Rooms are in two blocks around a parking lot. Room entry is from an outside corridor, and the large window in the room faces that corridor and parking lot (if you are on a first floor room, you may not have a lot of privacy if you leave the curtains open). There is another small window in the room facing behind the property. We had a king room, which was spacious and had nice furnishings and a comfortable bed, coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. Vanity was in the room instead of in the bathroom. Free wifi. Breakfast was a carbfest (would have appreciated some protein and dairy). Proprietors have put a lot of TLC into this property and it shows. Would stay here again.
