The town of Ouray is a perfect, little town experience- in the mountains in Colorado! There are plenty of shopping and food options on the main street. Matterhorn Motel is very comfortable, and the owners helpful and welcoming. It is an old fashioned motel, but clean and well-kept and actually to be preferred to the more trendy hotels available.

Very friendly, helpful service! Perfect location (downtown, amazing mountain view), comfy beds, delicious hot breakfast at a local cafe, outdoor hot tub under the stars-- well worth it. If we ever go through Ouray again we will definitely stay here.

This was another stop during our off-road tour in the US. Stayed there in August 2016. This hotel/motel can be classified as simple but comfortable. Rooms are clean but could use some refurbishment. Bathroom was clean, but again not really up to date. No restaurant and no possibility to have breakfast. You do get a voucher to have breakfast at...

We came to town for a week to go ice climbing and were excited about staying here. That was until we opened the door to our room. Our "view" was of the wall in front of us. We barely had a place to put our gear down. The bed was creaky and the sheets felt like someone elses's used t-shirt,...

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave us a review. You booked a reservation to stay with us for three nights. We had your room reserved, Room 11, which was on the first floor and had a beautiful view of the mountains. To our surprise, you arrived at the Inn a day early then the reservation...

Great location, very nice desk staff. The rooms are very nicely renovated and the beds are super comfortable. The rooms are a little on the small side -- I stay in Ouray every year once or twice, and I can say they're smaller than other hotels in town -- I'm from NYC, and they felt like NYC hotel rooms in...

Great little hotel nestled in the Switzerland of America! Nice little place with hot tub and free breakfast at local cafe. Looked recently updated with furniture and the shower was nice after a long day of driving. Price is not bad as we visited on the edge of the summer and winter seasons. One issue: Bolt on the door was...

Great hotel. The rooms are immaculate. Customer serive is outstanding. We loved the breakfast vouchers, the food was fresh and delicious. The hot tub is great for a soak after adventuring on the trails surrounding the town. Walking distance to great food and libations. Will definitely stay again.

The Matterhorn is clean, close enough to town to walk to shops and restaurants, and the outdoor seating area is very comfortable! However, the owners need to purchase smaller furniture that does not overwhelm the room occupied by travelers with luggage. My primary complaint is that, in my 68 years, I have rarely needed to ask for managerial assistance to...

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave us a review. When you came into the office with the lightbulb in hand and the owner responded, "The light bulbs are supposed to last for about ten years, so I am not sure why it wouldn't be working." Then she went into your room, put the lightbulb back...

A legacy hotel that has recently been updated with great care in presenting a very nice cozy feel with a tasteful decor. There is a great deck with a fire pit lounge area that is great for evening conversation. The local eateries are all within a short walk. We travel to Ouray almost every fall and this hotel will certainly...

We visited mid-week the middle of September. The motel was full yet nice and quiet. Our double queen room on the second floor was beautiful and very clean. Microwave and refrigerator are inside the cabinet. Tub and toilet area is very small which was fine for us. Vanity was in large area with lots of room for luggage, which was...
