This is one of the most charming and darling lodges in the historic town of Ouray, Colorado. Many people refer to this town as the Switzerland of America. Ouray is known for its incredible hot springs and ice climbing. Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs truly shines as this property has its own hot spring channeled into multiple hot tubs throughout the property connected via bridges and gorgeous paths. That is another thing families will note about this property, the lush landscaping. It’s obvious the owners take such pride into the grounds and upkeep of this hotel.
Room choices include standard rooms to suites to apartment suites. All come standard with A/C, coffeemaker, microwave, refrigerator, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, free Wi-Fi and TV. There is ample parking on site, and usually very close to the entrance of the hotel room. There is a light continental breakfast available in the lobby area each morning. The concierge is extremely helpful in identifying fun family activities and helping with recommendations. The hotel is ideally situated right in the town of Ouray, and close enough to walk to all the restaurants, shops and entertainment.

Box Canyon Lodge was the perfect place to spend a weekend in Ouray. It's on the edge of town so it's nice and quiet, and the rooms were nice and cozy. The hot springs were the perfect way to start a chilly fall day, and the restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Jason at the front was also extremely nice, and I highly recommend staying here!

I enjoyed staying here. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a cabin-like vibe to the place that I liked. You can open windows for fresh air if you want, unlike many chain hotels. Heating or cooling was operated by a wall thermostat, which I liked. The staff were all nice. I briefly tried one of the hot tubs on the property, and it was fine.
