Reviewed 4 July 2014

We decided to check into River's Edge Motel on a whim. Thank goodness we did. This was the best experience we've ever had with a motel. We lucked out and were given the last room available. What a fantastic room. It was the room located directly behind the office. The owner explained that it doubles as their residence during certain times of year. It was gorgeous. Roomy and comfortable. The grounds were lovely and welcoming. Lots of places to wander or sit and enjoy the view. The next morning before check out, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast provided by the owners. (And yummy fresh baked cookies!). The owners were so incredibly kind. We felt like they actually cared about us and our comfort. We HIGHLY recommend River's Edge.

Rivers Edge had one of the most scenic views in Ouray. The grounds are lushly landscaped right down to the rushing river which is so peaceful to listen to. We hope to keep coming back. Although the plumbing and electrical are antiquated, WiFi is available everywhere. It can be irritating trying to get the toilet to flush and I take a flashlight to help the dim lighting. But it is clean with gracious in-residence owners available all the time. Breakfast is delightful with incredible hot cookies to sum it up!

We were with oldest grandson and family to enjoy the hot springs in Ouray, found this motel last summer while staying at another well know motel that we felt was getting more expensive each year , we will stay here from now on and usually go up two to three times a year with family or friends, they have such a clean, beautiful well taken care of grounds and rooms were very clean,
enjoyed the breakfast also and rate was more than reasonable, thanks Rivers Edge Lodge for a great stay.

We stayed at the Rivers Edge Lodge the first of June for three nights. e were exceptionally please with our room, the service and sitting beside the river and listening to the flow of the water! We also loved sitting at the fire that was lit every night for the benefit of the hotel guests. I would recommend this lodge to anyone I know who will be visiting Ouray!

checked into our room to find it so small the two of us had to dance around each other just to get into the tiny bathroom. Once there we found out there were no bath towels. Later we found out why. The entire building was out of hot water, no need for towels. OK, maybe first thing in the morning the water would be at least warm. Again no dice. We decided to check out and go to another hotel. We were told sorry about the hot water, but you booked two nights you'll need to pay for two nights. Didn't understand why when Rivers Edge didn't live up to their end of the contract. Will not stay here again and will not recommend this place to anyone.

chad37, Owner at River's Edge Motel, responded to this reviewResponded 20 June 2014

These guests had a 2 day NON CANCEL reservation. Their conformation letter clearly stated that, all changes and alterations had to be done 24hrs prior to check in. The price of their room was contingent on this policy. The lack of hot water was due to a power outage during the night. A kind guest made us aware of the situation early in the morning . Hot water was restored with in a hour. Apparently our temporary maid staff neglected to put extra towels in the room. We apologize for this. We were running abit short handed because my partner Dave was away having cancer surgery. We are happy to report that as of June 12 he is now cancer free, and back here with me making sure that all future guests are taken care of in excellent Rivers Edge tradition.

We stayed at River's Edge several years ago and enjoyed it so much we stayed here again. The staff are wonderfully friendly and, as others say, got more than our moneys worth. Several improvements have been made which enhanced this stay. There is a wonderful patio for sitting along with some grills you can use. We liked the benches that have been added next to the river for sitting and enjoying the view. And their breakfast has been expanded.

This is a beautiful setting and a place we will definitely go again.

We definitely got more than our moneys worth here. Very friendly owners that bent over backwards to accommodate us. Dave made you feel like an old friend rather than a motel guest. We decided to stay another night so we had to switch rooms and both of them were very comfortable. The breakfast was very good with many choices, but the best part was the magnificent landscaping. The setting is at the rivers edge and the beautiful flowers and sound of the rushing water make it a relaxing retreat. We stayed for 3 nights and we will be back for sure.
