We stayed 2 nights at the River's Edge (May 10th & 11th, 2014) and would definitely return. The value for this property is fantastic. Lowest priced property we stayed at during our little trip (Ouray, Crested Butte, Telluride) but by far the best. Large, nice rooms with an excellent location near downtown Ouray. Didn't use the hot tub but it...

I believe we arrived for our one night stay (May 5, 2014) less than a week after the motel opened for the season. Everything was running smoothly, though, and we enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean, everything was operable (except AC, but that wasn't needed), and our window opened upon the ever-flowing Uncompahgre River. The grounds are very...

Don't tell the proprietors, but they are not charging enough for this gem of a hotel. It feels like more of a bed-and-breakfast in the personal touches and attention to detail. But the guestrooms are large and there is plenty of privacy. The location is difficult to beat, right on the bank of the river and only steps to Main...

My husband and I stayed at River's edge almost four years ago, and returned this past Christmas for vacation. We loved the cozy rooms, the location (next to the river), and the great price. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We also love the the complimentary breakfast and friendly owners. You won't find two more hard working people! It's an...

Visiting for a week in October, each day we grew happier with the River's Edge. Owners Dave and Chad really work hard to make the stay enjoyable, and went well beyond all expectations when any of us asked for help. The grounds are like a professionally manicured garden, looking great even at the onset of winter. We wished we could...

We have been staying at the River's Edge for several years now, several times per year. Enough that the owners usually recognize us. Having stayed at several other places around town, we keep coming back to the River's Edge because everyone is so nice, and our dog loves it. There is a dog park right behind the facility too. It...

We stayed at the River's Edge on a recent winter road trip and we will definitely be back (maybe for the FJ Summit this summer!). The location is unbelievable; alongside the river with gorgeous mountain views and a block from the main drag in Ouray. The hosts are wonderful, too, very friendly and accomodating and I love that they allow...

The Rivers Edge Motel is clean, with large rooms, refrigerator, cooktops, sunk and a babbling stream right outside to settle the nerves. 24 hot tub access with a modest sized, modest made continental breakfast included. Staff is nice and price is very good.

Fantastic location for Ice Festival (and all summer adventures too). Rooms are clean, modern, well furnished (two queens and a pull out sofa, sleep 6), very well laid out, and looked after daily during the stay (cleaned, beds made, towels replaced, etc.). The motel is centrally located within Ouray (a beautiful 2 block stroll to the very middle of Main...

Great place to stay. Did all they could to ensure that all of our needs were met. Always had fresh towels available. Nice hot tub. Cool setting right by the creek. Fresh baked cookies with every breakfast!!
