“Great bed!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Stayed one night. We had a room on ground floor, so we could hear the people upstairs walking in their room. But either way, slept great that night! Our kingsize bed was amazing. Breakfast was more than ok with eggs and easy-to-make fresh waffles.

Room Tip: Kingsize bed!

We stayed 2 nights at the River's Edge (May 10th & 11th, 2014) and would definitely return. The value for this property is fantastic. Lowest priced property we stayed at during our little trip (Ouray, Crested Butte, Telluride) but by far the best. Large, nice rooms with an excellent location near downtown Ouray. Didn't use the hot tub but it was clean and available. We did enjoy sitting by the river and found the motel grounds to be very well kept and very relaxing. The room was large, clean and had a nice view of the mountains. The owners were on site and involved with their property. After we made our initial reservation for 3 nights, we had to cancel one night and found the owners very accommodating and helpful. I would definitely recommend this motel.

Room Tip: We had a "family suite" which was just a few dollars more but seemed to be well worth the...

I believe we arrived for our one night stay (May 5, 2014) less than a week after the motel opened for the season. Everything was running smoothly, though, and we enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean, everything was operable (except AC, but that wasn't needed), and our window opened upon the ever-flowing Uncompahgre River. The grounds are very well kept, and the breakfast was great. Only one owner/operator was there (his partner had had some health issues) and he was a little harassed and harried, but he was accommodating. We brought our dog along, and he enjoyed himself, too. The only regret I have--and this has nothing to do with the motel--is that Red Mountain Pass was open only one hour a day, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for falling rock mitigation. Otherwise, our trip to Ouray was great.

Don't tell the proprietors, but they are not charging enough for this gem of a hotel. It feels like more of a bed-and-breakfast in the personal touches and attention to detail. But the guestrooms are large and there is plenty of privacy.
The location is difficult to beat, right on the bank of the river and only steps to Main Street, Ouray. Beautiful grounds, hot tub and full hot breakfast round out this great value and great spot.

My husband and I stayed at River's edge almost four years ago, and returned this past Christmas for vacation. We loved the cozy rooms, the location (next to the river), and the great price. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We also love the the complimentary breakfast and friendly owners. You won't find two more hard working people! It's an easy walk into town, so you can make it to all the shops and restaurants without a problem. Did I also mention the complimentary hot tubs with a perfect view of the river? The rooms have a small table, refrigerator, and microwave. very convenient for leftovers; will save you money!...The ONLY downside to the place we felt was the lack of tv channels, but when you're in such a beautiful town, you really don't need tv!

Visiting for a week in October, each day we grew happier with the River's Edge. Owners Dave and Chad really work hard to make the stay enjoyable, and went well beyond all expectations when any of us asked for help. The grounds are like a professionally manicured garden, looking great even at the onset of winter. We wished we could stay a lot longer, and are already looking forward to a return visit.

The location is near ideal, at the quiet end of a side street. Yet, it's barely a minute walk up to the busy main street with all of the restaurants and shops. There is plenty of parking, good internet, good fresh breakfast, real hot tubs (on our must-have list), comfortable and clean accommodations... couldn't think of a single negative thing to report.

Room Tip: Enjoyed the premium suite upstairs in the main lodge: totally quiet, spacious but cozy, beautifully...

We have been staying at the River's Edge for several years now, several times per year. Enough that the owners usually recognize us. Having stayed at several other places around town, we keep coming back to the River's Edge because everyone is so nice, and our dog loves it. There is a dog park right behind the facility too. It has a central location in town, so you can walk to the ice climbs and pubs easily. The breakfast is nothing fancy but always good and plenty of variety of things to choose from. Plus, the waffle machine is a hoot.

Room Tip: If you bring a dog, request a room on the lower level. Sometimes the dogs get scared going up the me...
