“The only place to stay in Ouray!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

We have been going to Ouray well over a decade and staying at the Rivers Edge because they were pet friendly. When Chad and Dave bought the motel 5 years ago it became a"home away from home". The rooms are comfortable, clean and accommodating. The owners, Dave and Chad, are so attentive and friendly, and they go above and beyond to make sure your stay is the best. Beautiful landscaping and views-we love it there and go every year.

We visit Ouray every fall and always stay at the River's Edge Motel. We love the location - the motel is conveniently located within walking distance of main street and at the same time offers a beautiful, peaceful setting next to the river. The owners are fantastic - very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. We visit Ouray for various activities including biking, hiking, and jeeping and the owners always accommodate our needs - including offering us a secure location for our bicycles. The rooms are always very clean and we enjoy the convenience of having a refrigerator and a microwave. The breakfast is also very convenient, especially since there are not a lot of places to eat breakfast in Ouray. We also appreciate the ease of being a late arrival - our key is always available at the front desk regardless of our arrival time and we can check in the following morning.

We loved staying at the River's Edge Motel last month when we went on our annual "Color Tour." This year we took a different route and ended up in Ouray. We typically stay at hotels & not motels, but because of the good reviews I read, we decided to give this place a shot. I'm glad we did! The owner was very nice and friendly when we checked in. He also helped us figure out where to go for dinner. Our room was huge! We didn't realize it had a full kitchen in it! We were pleasantly surprised! The beds were very comfortable and with the river running right by the motel, it was a very peaceful setting! We would definitely stay there again!

We stayed at River's Edge for four nights. The location is perfect. Just a block or so off the main road. Easy walk to restaurants. Rooms are very clean and well appointed. Staff was attentive and provided info on local attractions. Landscaping of motel is just beautiful. Only downside, if there was one, was that breakfast was not available until 8:00 am.

Ouray is beautiful anytime of the year but the lodge adds to it by being beautifully landscaped and very private relaxation in the gardens. The rooms were well cared for and very caring owners. We held an Administrative Personnel conference at the lodge and it was very successful, everyone enjoyed the location and the lodge.

What a wonderful place to stay!! The owners are great, friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean (even the sheets smell fresh). We woke up every morning with the sound of the river rushing by our window - what more can you ask for. The location is within walking distance to every restaurant and store in town - no need to drive to dinner. The motel does serve breakfast at no charge -great coffee, waffles, bagels etc nice way to start the day. Being a block or two off the main road gave us the quiet beauty we were wanting yet close enough to walk everywhere we chose to.
Thank you for a great couple days - we will be back.

A lovely motel in a great location. Nice clean rooms, ample breakfast, friendly owners, and a grand setting next to the river. From the hot tub we had a view of the mountains. The grounds had benches next to the river from which we could enjoy evening wine. I noticed a lot of people doing the same. There were little extra touches such as Multi outlet extension for recharging all 'toys' without moving furniture.
