Based on all the positive reviews here, we set our expectations too high and were rather disappointed with our stay. We got to the motel around 5 pm on Saturday and the hosts were already gone with no one at the front desk but our keys and instructions in the envelope. We were leaving the next day early in the morning at 7 am so we never got to meet the hosts or have breakfast, which is served pretty late. The room itself was relatively spacious with a living room and a bedroom. The living room/kitchen area had a microwave and a fridge, though pretty old looking and we never figured out how to make the fridge work. There is free parking on the property, hot tub in the courtyard and free internet, which was extremely poor and slow with me barely getting one bar signal. On the plus side, the hotel is centrally located in downtown Ouray, within the walking distance to shops and restaurants - though considering how small Ouray is most hotels are- and close to hot springs swimming pool. It was ok stay for one night, but it felt really impersonal and I wish the internet was more reliable. Next time we are in Ouray, we'll try another place.
