In gorgeous Ouray, a picture perfect small town wedged between mountain rock, there's an unassuming brick building right on the main drag....The St Elmo. Walking in is like stepping back in history --- in a lovely Victorian style small bnb type of inn filled with lovely antiques. The inn owner is beyond welcoming and immediately invited us to his happy hour(s) "meet the guest' get together. Munchies and wine were served, guests were an eclectic group, stories were shared -- and we never made it to dinner. Our room actually was two rooms much in style with historic appointments --- beautifully maintained with lovely perfectly restored antique décor. LOVED this place. Left and impression. So much more fun than the sterile and typical hotel/motels one could choose. No tv in the room although there's a beautiful parlor downstairs if you need to watch one. AND they serve a great breakfast. Do not hesitate unless you absolutely need to go to bed with a tv on.

Randomly selected this hotel several months ago while planning an extended road trip through the west. We arrived mid afternoon to a friendly greeting from David (proprietor). After a brief check-in process, he showed us to our room.

This is a lovely, beautifully decorated and period furnished b&b. The rooms are comfortable and a step back into the turn of the last century. The complimentary breakfast was beautifully presented and included coffee, a variety of juices, fresh fruits, cereals and hot dishes. Great stay and very relaxing.

If you're looking for an off-beat, old-time, boutique hotel in Ouray, CO, may we recommend the St. Elmo? We loved the settings, both inside and out at this family owned-and-staffed historic B&B. Although our room offered little in the way of a view and was small by 21st century standards, it felt authentic and reflected the period that pervaded when this tiny mining town was in full swing. If you are not tied to big chain motels, then this friendly and courteous staff more than makes up for any short-comings in sleeping accommodation. Evenings kick off with a happy hour, and mornings with a delicious home-cooked meal. The St. Elmo is the perfect place to drink in the flavor of Colorado's rich past, and soak in all the adventures modern Ouray affords.
If we're ever near Ouray again, we'll book there for sure!
Tim and Kate Peters, Colorado Springs.

Room Tip: If you desire a view, book a room on the front side of the hotel.

The St. Elmo was a great place to stay great rooms, cool victorian feel. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the town. Hotel is in great location and almost every room has a view. The breakfast and happy hour were fun as well. Ill go back to the St. Elmo every time I am in South Colorado its worth the trip.

If you are looking for a safe, clean and affordable home away from home, this is the place. A quiet, calming and laid back atmosphere. Exactly the respite you'd hope to find. I always fear making reservations due to the fact you are never quite sure if the marketing of a business is as good as advertised. Most unfortunately, are not.Trust me, St. Elmo stands out above and beyond any other.

The owners and Laura could not be any nicer and accommodating to our every need. They are very informative on any and all upcoming attractions in and around Ouray. Wonderful people who will go out of their way to ensure your time here is a wonderful memory. We stayed 3 nights and can not wait to return.

Check-in is a breeze. If you're waiting on them, you're backing up! They already have everything ready. That counts for a lot because no time spent here is more time spent on your vacation.
The hotel itself is mesmorizing. Built during an era when ceilings were tall and rooms and hallways large. You move around with such ease, not like most hotels where you bump into furniture every time you turn around. Very comfortable beds, great water pressure and all this surrounded by the beauty of antiques. St. Elmo seems to have a life of her own and she will capture your heart the moment you enter.

So in closing, the perfect home away from home. From atmosphere to ornate and beautiful surroundings, and the most hospitable staff you can only hope to have the good fortune to meet.

Room Tip: We stayed in the largest room. Room 2. Gorgeous, comfortable and very large.
