From the moment we walked in, Pat made us feel like we were at home. The old school charm and cleanliness of the China Clipper Inn, sets it a part as an outstanding option. 5 minute walk to Main Street and close to hikes and ATV options. The muffins are amazing and breakfast is home cooked daily. A nice rock...

Absolutely love this place and the people. Everyone there had a wonderful open personality and it reflected in the guest also being open, appropriately chatty and helpful. The food was great and I might go back just for the muffins! We were a walk in the early afternoon on a sunday and got lucky. We were not given any attitude...

We spent two nights in the Golden West Suite it was roomy and comfortable. The owners were gracious and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and homemade muffins are available all day. I would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect for accessing Main Street Ouray.

From the moment Ingrid answered the phone to take my reservation, I knew we'd chosen the right place for our stay in Ouray. Everything about the China Clipper Inn was enjoyable----from the friendly, caring staff to our well-appointed room (Sovereign of the Sea) to the marvelous from-scratch breakfast we were treated to each morning. The inn is also conveniently located...
