We came to Ouray for two days, but decided to stay for for three nights since this was such a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. The hot spring tubs are wonderful and therapeutic. We will definitively return.

Clean basic rooms within walking distance to all of Ouray. Box Canyon is right behind the hotel you can either walk up or take a short drive. The hot spring tubs 5 that are on property were amazing the natural water rejuvenates your skin. The hotel offers a coupon for breakfast in town.

What a nice 'cabin' feel, nestled in the beautiful mountain town of Ouray. The staff is super friendly, the view spectacular, and the room comfy and just right. Very nice hot spring tubs, too.

This motel was wonderful. It's very charming and feels like stepping back in time in a good way. The beds were comfortable and slept well, the bedding and room had been updated recently. The cute little flowers all around the walkways added a sweet touch. The view and location to the box Canyon is awesome. I walked from our room...

I try to maintain perspective when I visit places. The city itself is not pristine - dirt roads and older buildings. The Box Canyon Lodge fit the ambiance of the town itself. That being said - no matter how a hotel fits into its surroundings, it is never acceptable to have old, worn out mattresses. A hotel is mainly for...

It's upsetting that this was your experience -- when we envisioned our dream, we wanted to create a lodge that was both comfortable and reflective of the intimate, beautiful town we call home. I appreciate your feedback and will look into it ASAP. In the meantime, I hope you had a lovely visit in Ouray. Take care, Rich Avery, Owner

The building is motel-style and the hot springs are used by sitting in wooden barrel tubs. These are facts we knew before we booked and arrived. What we didn’t know, however, and what shocked us, was how old and run-down the building and tubs were. The astronomical price charged by the hotel for what was offered was an offense. In...

It's a shame you didn't enjoy your stay with us as much as we'd have hoped. When we opened this lodge, our vision was to create a rustic, comfortable place for our town's visitors to stay. It's shocking to hear you didn't find the room or the tubs to be up to par during your visit. I know we can...

Very nice place well ran. Clean rooms and well maintained. A great location a few blocks off the main drag and close to down town. You could easily walk to the downtown area. Staff was friendly and great. The only negative about the place is the breakfast was pathetic. Packaged danishes, oranges, coffee, and small cans of juice. Hot tubs...

We recently re-visited Box Canyon. We stayed there with our kids 27 years ago and it is still just as nice. The outdoor hot tubs are awesome and a special thanks to housekeeping staff who found a personal item we left behind. A great experience.
