LOVED IT. We stayed in room #9, one of the 2 large Victorian decorated suites, with private bath overlooking the front balcony.The price $105 per night, and well worth the experience as compared to other conventional hotels in the area for the same price. For $49 they offer very cute 1&2 bed rooms with nicely decorated, shared bath, which I'd...

We wanted to experience the period. Actually got a deal on lift tickets as part of a package. Shared bath between rooms was just more of a reality check. Went to the city hot spring and excellent restaurant below.

Booked this hotel as my parents had stayed there 10 years prior and had said how lovely it was. I had read the negative reviews but since there were so few other accommodation options in Ouray at the time I thought I'd give it a go. To start with this is a beautiful grand old building. You can imagine what...

We arrived after hours so we had to self check in which constituted a combination lock. Many steep steps to the 2nd floor and poor lighting. The room was worn but gave you the feeling of an old western hotel. We only had cold water in the sink but had to use the claw foot tub to get hot water.

True to its historical qualities, the Historic Western Hotel looks and feels like it has travelled through time. So, don't look for a plush modern-day experience unless you want to be disappointed. It's exquisite for 1891. It's primitive for people who expect 21st century comforts. We chose the suites for our family of six. The kids were not thrilled. But...

We stayed at The Historic Western Hotel in the last weekend of September. Upon arrival in Ouray, we found a well-preserved Victorian mining village bringing you back to an era gone-by. The Historic Western Hotel perfectly fits in and adds to that old-west feeling. The hotel itself was built in the late 1800's, and its interior appeared to date from...

We ended up staying one night at this hotel when our camping plans fell through due to all of the campsites being full. Fortunately this hotel had two rooms for an incredible price. The hotel itself was very interesting. The layout and the decor really does make you think about how life was in the 1800s. Unfortunately, we also know...

So the place is on the shabby side -- it was built in 1891, and probably has not seen a decent renovation in many, many years. We ended up here because night was approaching and we decided not to push on to Durango on the Million Dollar Highway. This was the only place in town with rooms available, so we...

Worst place I've ever stayed. Looks nice on the website, however it's severely run down. Restaurant and bar are closed, they market 2 rooms with balcony however access to the balcony has been closed for quite some time. The doors and windows are caulked shut, loud, no front desk person most of the time so clearly not safe. Broken furniture,...

We stay at the Historic Western Hotel every year when we visit Ouray, CO. We always stay in room # 9. Private bath, large room with comfortable bed. Reasonably priced too. Very old time feel. We love it! This year we ate all our meals in their restaurant, and we were very happy with food and service. They were very...
