What a great place to spend the night! The rooms were large and very clean. A pair of very cool old west style bar doors opened into the bathroom which was also very clean.
The absolute best feature of the property is the 4 natural hot springs tubs just outside your hotel room.
There are 4 tubs that range in temperature with the hottest being at the top of the stairs and progressively getting cooler as you descend to the 2 lower tubs at ground level. Each tub can hold 4 adults in close proximity to each other. For the e best soak look for a open tub for one or two people!
A great place to stay overnight or for an extended period due to all there is to see in and around Ouray!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that opens to the tubs. They are very quiet even with the closeness to the tubs.

We have had Box Canyon on our list since our last trip to Ouray 2 years ago.It met all of our expectations.The guests respected the 15 minute policy on the 4 pools and either shared or gave up the pool when others were waiting.1 of the pools seemed a little low on water our last day there but usually it had enough people in it that the level was not a problem.All in all a very relaxing stay the staff was generally extremely nice. We would suggest taking advantage of the continental breakfast later as opposed to the start at 7:30.Its very busy at the start and the front desk seemed a little tense.Other than that a wonderful stay at a quaint quiet lodge.

Dear MaPaChoo,

It is always a pleasure to hear from our guests regarding their visits with us. It is through you that we are able to better see how we are succeeding as well as areas in need of improvement.

Our four mineral hot spring tubs are indeed wonderful, and we are so fortunate that our guests are so considerate of one another. It has been our experience that often folks who meet during an evening soak have been known to form lasting friendships, some people even plan their annual visits to Ouray to correspond with the schedules of friends they made while visiting here!
There are definitely times (often on a busy Saturday) that groups of friends will enjoy a tub and displace the water too fast for our pumps to keep up with. The tubs pump hot spring water directly from the ground, and temperature sensors moderate the amount of water going into each tub to maintain a safe soaking temperature. If the water has dropped a significant amount, it may take about fifteen to twenty minutes for the water level to rise back up to normal.
Our mission at the Box Canyon Lodge is to exceed the expectations of every guest by providing clean, comfortable rooms, meticulously maintained grounds, and exemplary service. We love to have a guest return time and again - it is the best compliment!
Thank you so much for reviewing our property, and we hope to see you when you return to beautiful Ouray!

Best Regards,

Karen Avery

We stopped in Ouray to do some hiking and to enjoy the city. The box canyon lodge was above and beyond our expectations. It is situated right up agains the mountain and within walking distance to Box Canyon Falls. The room was clean and comfortable. They have small hot springs barrels in that let you soak in the hot springs as you watch the stars. The staff was very friendly and helpful and even had homemade muffins for us in the morning. We will definitely be returning to Ouray and Box Canyon lodge as well as recommending it to friends.

Dear sarahmelise,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience here with us!

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and to experience some of the awesome things there are to do and see in beautiful Ouray, Colorado!

Our four mineral hot spring tubs, tiered on the hillside in our courtyard are a truly perfect way to finish after a day of hiking and exploring. Nothing quite compares to soaking away sore muscles than under a canopy of stars.

The goal of our staff is to exceed the expectations of every guest by providing clean, comfortable rooms, meticulously maintained grounds and exemplary customer service. It is always a pleasure to hear we are successful at creating a memorable experience.

Again, thank you for your review, and we hope to see you again soon!

Only stayed one night on a cold night at the end of November. The room was spacious and clean, bed was huge and comfy, though the bathroom seemed a little smaller then I expected (and a bit out of date) It was quiet and peaceful here, had a lovely experience. My favourite part is the outside hot tubs on three different levels with different temperature. My husband and I went out when it was already dark and since you are in a bikini (and I was bare foot too, had no slippers with me) its great fun to run down from the room and then back in the freezing weather especially when you are super warm from the bath. Felt like kids in a summer camp. Also when you are sitting in the tub, you can see the beautiful Denver Mountains, what a lovely scenery. Great, great times, definitely recommend it!

Our four all natural mineral hot spring tubs are indeed the perfect way to enjoy a chilly spring evening!
Ranging in temperature from 102 to 108 degrees, nothing quite compares to a long soak while enjoying the amazing scenery.

We stayed here one Sunday night and on leaving, forgot some medical supplies which are important to my husband's heath. It wasn't until Thursday that I called and they had found them, mailed them immediately and we had them within two days. Wonderful. Impressive service!

The hot spring pools are right there and the views are incredible. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

30 years ago we pick this place to stay at for our honeynoon and have been coming back every year, the staff is so nice, the rooms are very clean with comfy beds, everything is in walking distance, the hot tubs are relaxing, once in awhile setting in the top hot tubs you will see deer.

Room Tip: Rooms by the hot tubs with king beds are quieter

My girlfriend and I went here for our spring break vacation and were thoroughly impressed with this hotel. The hot springs are warm and inviting, with two of them having a view at night to die for. The room was rustic and well cleaned/kept with plenty of room for having 4 people stay comfortably in their double queen rooms. The outside of the hotel and the grounds are extremely well kept and actually look exactly like they do in the professional pictures posted. Then, there is the area that it is in. It resides right at the head of the major hiking trail to the box canyon water falls and the ice park, which are amazing. My girlfriend and I spent an entire day hiking up there and loved every second of it from the views to the challenge. Overall the staff are helpful, warm and inviting. One night I spent 40 minutes in the main office just talking to them when I went to for some coffee before heading out to the hot springs. Overall this hotel blew me and my girlfriend away by its affordability and what you get for that price. Between the location, the rooms, the amenities and the staff, I will stay here every time I come to Ouray and I'll be back soon from what the town is like in general.

Room Tip: The rooms by the hot springs are the best, because on a cold night the walk while cold is bitter.

Dear Robertwk2014,

Ouray is indeed one of the most spectacular places to visit. Located as we are in the southwest corner of this tiny community, The Box Canyon Lodge is ideal for those interested in exploring the area.
Our goal is to provide every guest with clean, comfortable rooms and excellent service.
We take pride in our town, and property, and it is always pleasing to hear that this shines through to our guests in the appearance of the grounds.
After a long day hiking the area and exploring, our four mineral hot spring tubs are a perfect way to relax before heading out to dinner then settling in for a nice movie from our video library.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent visit with us, and we look forward to many more visits in the future.

Best Regards,

Karen Avery
