This was our third time to the hotel and we won't go anywhere else. The owner, Dave and his son Blake, take care of the place, and take care of their guests. Breakfast is served from 8-9AM by Aurora and she is great, and funny! :) You can enjoy your choice of red or white wine, or, a margarita from...

We spent three nights here and enjoyed our stay. There is no TV in the rooms, but a large flat-screen TV in the common area. The bathroom is well-stocked, but the shower is tiny. The breakfast, which is available from 8-9 AM, offers a variety of juices, cereals, and breads plus hot items such as scrambled eggs or pancakes, hash...

This used to be a favorite place for us to stay. Sadly, it was sold to a new owner who needs help in hospitality management. Although friendly enough, he doesn't seem to realize his "my way or the highway" approach is not gracious or hospitable. There isn't enough staff in the evenings to take care of guests checking in or...

Dave is a WONDERFUL host and Aurora does a great job with the daily breakfast buffet (best deal in town)! This was our fourth (or fifth?) trip to Ouray and our first time staying here. It can be stressful trying a new place, but we were more than pleasantly surprised. The hotel has all this historic touches of the period...

Ouray is a great Western town to visit, with its late 19th century historic buildings, warm hot springs pool (quite nice), its fun downtown, crafty shops, and its emphasis on outdoor activities. The St. Elmo Hotel is an experience! Don't plan on a television for entertainment, but it's quiet, and gives one a real feel for what it would have...

It is charming, great Victorian decor, perfectly situated, a quick walk to restaurants and the Brewery on Main St. We have especially enjoyed happy hour with the owner, Dave. Breakfast is always delicious.

Dave and Blake father and son proprietors are extremely personable and helpful. The hotel is relaxing and serene. No phones and TV's in the rooms, but that just adds to the getaway experience.

Good stay. This is restored hotel that still feels Victorian. The rooms are all different, but furnished with a combination of antiques and modern furniture. The rooms are good size, but the bathrooms are very small. No tv in rooms, but a big one in the parlour. No elevator. Breakfast is good. Good and friendly service.

After researching many of the B&Bs and hotels in Ouray, we selected the St. Elmo Hotel. We were very happy we did as we let our imagination take us back in time to that of the furnishings and wall-paper - the early 1900's. Our room (number 6) was very comfortable, and we did not miss having a TV in the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Step back in time and relive the glory days of Colorado's col-or-ful past... At the St. Elmo Hotel in Ouray, Col-orado. Once bustling with gold and sil-ver seek-ers, Ouray today is a pic-turesque ham-let, sur-rounded by 14,000 foot peaks in the majes-tic San Juan moun-tains of south-west Col-orado. The St. Elmo Hotel is a lov-ingly restored, turn-of-the-century inn located in the heart of Ouray, Col-orado, a national his-toric dis-trict. Dec-o-rated with Vic-to-rian flair and full of period antiques, this 9-room Col-orado bed and break-fast inn delights guests with a wine & cheese social hour every after-noon in the cozy par-lor and a full buf-fet break-fast every morn-ing served in the sunny break-fast room. After spend-ing the day dis-cov-er-ing a new hik-ing trail or the fine shops in the area, a soak in the out-door hot tub is a great way to relax while sur-rounded by the beau-ti-ful San Juan mountains. ... more   less
