Great little hotel nestled in the Switzerland of America! Nice little place with hot tub and free breakfast at local cafe. Looked recently updated with furniture and the shower was nice after a long day of driving. Price is not bad as we visited on the edge of the summer and winter seasons. One issue: Bolt on the door was... More

Great hotel. The rooms are immaculate. Customer serive is outstanding. We loved the breakfast vouchers, the food was fresh and delicious. The hot tub is great for a soak after adventuring on the trails surrounding the town. Walking distance to great food and libations. Will definitely stay again.

The Matterhorn is clean, close enough to town to walk to shops and restaurants, and the outdoor seating area is very comfortable! However, the owners need to purchase smaller furniture that does not overwhelm the room occupied by travelers with luggage. My primary complaint is that, in my 68 years, I have rarely needed to ask for managerial assistance to... More

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave us a review. When you came into the office with the lightbulb in hand and the owner responded, "The light bulbs are supposed to last for about ten years, so I am not sure why it wouldn't be working." Then she went into your room, put the lightbulb back... More

A legacy hotel that has recently been updated with great care in presenting a very nice cozy feel with a tasteful decor. There is a great deck with a fire pit lounge area that is great for evening conversation. The local eateries are all within a short walk. We travel to Ouray almost every fall and this hotel will certainly... More

We visited mid-week the middle of September. The motel was full yet nice and quiet. Our double queen room on the second floor was beautiful and very clean. Microwave and refrigerator are inside the cabinet. Tub and toilet area is very small which was fine for us. Vanity was in large area with lots of room for luggage, which was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on our tour of the area. Good location in the centre of town. Very short walk to the brewery, shops and restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable. On the top floor so no noise above us. Despite the motel being full it was peaceful. Guests were predominately young or retired couples. We were given... More

This place has new owners and they have made this place like a home away from home. The owners are kind, helpful, courteous and they keep one of the cleanest places I've ever seen and I've been in a lot of mo/hotels. The price is a great bargain for getting a room that feels like a 5 star hotel. The... More

We just returned from a Ouray vacation and stayed at the Matterhorn. This is a great place to stay. Very clean room with new bathroom. We were given a choice each day of a continental breakfast, or a choice to eat at 2 participating restaurants. The owners are very accommodating. The room is on the smaller side, but everything else... More

We stayed two nights at the Matterhorn Motel in Ouray. It is within walking distance of everything in town, but not right on the Main Street, so it is reasonably quiet. This is an old motel that has been updated recently, so the rooms are a bit small and the walls are a bit thin, making it likely that you... More
