Clean rooms with great amenities. Main Street is 3 blocks. Lots to see and do in Ouray. The breakfast is okay, but there are alternate opportunities 2 - 3 blocks away. The price is a good value for what you get!

The Rivers Edge was a great place to spend a couple days. I travel a lot so I have expectations of a hotel that I won't compromise on. The room needs to be clean. The bathroom should be spotless. The bed should be comfortable. Rivers Edge passed with flying colors. It was a nice room and only a couple of...

I hesitate to rate this hotel excellent, because I do not want it booked up next time I want to go back. This motel has the best location, just off main street, quiet cul de sac, right on the river. Nice area right outside room to sit and relax, dog park on back side of motel. Main street only two...

Big rooms, 2 king beds each. Right on the river with private balcony. Rooms have nice Western decor and the grounds have a stage coach.. Short drive into town where there is a large public hot spring and pool.. Lots of good restaurants and shops in town.

IT was 11:10 AM. The staff was at their room. We simply asked them if they would like a late check out at $25.00/hr. He said my wife is finishing her hair, we said ok. What people fail to realize is that 11am is check out. This means you need to be out of the room unless you make prior...

We ended up staying at River's Edge due to the weather raining on our camping plans. But I'm so glad we landed here! Chad was super hospitable and friendly. You can tell the rooms have been recently renovated and are very clean. It's especially nice to have the refrigerator and microwave. And to be able to do laundry while hot...

My wife and I are huge fans of value that makes sense. If I pay $39.99 at some motel in the middle of nowhere, I expect to be less than thrilled by the room. If I pay $249.99 or more, the room had better be flawless. Our stay at River's Edge was, by far, the best value we have enjoyed...

I recently visited Ouray for the first time and chose this establishment because they were dog friendly and they were located right next to the river. After seeing how reasonable the rates were, I booked the family room for a three night stay (but I loved it so much I stayed an extra day). First, Ouray is amazingly beautiful. Small,...

Loved the riverside location and off the main highway. Had a nice common garden area outside where we could read and relax after a day of hiking. Short 2 block walk to the main street and all the restaurants and shops. We were traveling as 2 friends and got one of the "family suites" which was perfect size for us...

Gorgeous hotel in awesome location. One block off of Main Street in the best little town in the world! So much to do and see or just hang out and relax and take in the scenery. This hotel is clean, different, pretty!
