My sister, myself and our 89 year old mother traveled to Ouray in July of 2014 to attend our
moms first cousins 100th birthday. The Hot Springs Inn was definitely a wonderful surprise. I used to be a travel agent and I would not have hesitated to book clients into this delightful property. Our room was decorated in a western/cowboy theme. The room had a fireplace and we had a small deck overlooking the river. We were either extremely tired or this place was built right! I suspect the latter. Not once in our five night ( completely booked - no vacancy) stay did we hear footsteps above our first floor room or a neighbors television or a toilet flush. The shower I our room was excellent -- plenty of hot water and an adjustable shower head to accommodate any height. The beds in our room were so comfortable and so were the feather pillows. We were told the owner/manager had changed them out many times until he got exactly what he wanted. A very nice continental breakfast was served each morning with a great assortment of items to choose from. The property was located right next to the hot springs and in addition to the "hot spring pool" ,there was a play area for children which was being well used during our stay. The town is absolutely beautiful set in a valley surrounded by huge mountains. The road from Durango to Ouray was a little treacherous and it is listed as one of the 8 most dangerous roads in the world! Lucky for us, we drove in at night during a heavy rain and thunder and lightning so we didn't notice the 5,000 foot drop offs or the lacking guard rails. I would highly recommend this wonderful place to stay as well as the community it is in. Lots of boutiques, antique stores, restaurants, etc. in the winter, it is extremely popular for people who enjoy ice climbing. Our overall experience was wonderful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property along with the beautiful area of the country it sits into anyone -- mountains, meadows and a feeling of peace and serenity.
