China Clipper is outstanding!Posted Jan 22, 2016
Pros: Imagine coming outside on a 15 degree morning after a big snow to clean your car off, only to discover that the owners had already done it for you!
Location: Main Street is a block away with many shops and eateries, and the Box Canyon (home of ice climbing) is a 15 minute walk.
Hans and Ingrid (the owners) went out of their way to be sure we took advantage of all the amenities they offer - this is an outstanding B&B and we highly recommend it. It's in a great location within walking distance to all that Ouray has to offer. We've stayed in 5 or 6 places in Ouray, but this is the only one we'll book in the future.

October stay in OurayPosted Oct 8, 2015 on Hotels
We've stayed in several B&Bs over the last year, a couple of good ones, most are so-so, a few that ought to get out of the business. This is the second best B&B experience we've had! Really nicely kept, friendly, a block off of main street. The breakfast was delicious.

Exquisite decor but a little short on coffeePosted Oct 5, 2015 on Hotels
The rooms and public spaces are beautifully decorated with antiques or reproductions consistent with the clipper ship theme and period. One might think it was located on Nantucket or Cape Cod. However, the bathroom was very mundane. One problem though was that the four poster bed was very high and difficult to get into. The inn keeper laughed when I commented that a step stool was called for, but in fact I saw one in another room as I was departing. All rooms really need that equipment if they all have the same high beds. The breakfast was good and quite varied in its offerings but not really special. Only at breakfast was coffee available. At other times guests could make tea from tea bags but not coffee. No coffee maker in the rooms. In my opinion, a single serving coffee maker is called for in the communal space. The location is central, just one street away from the main street on which the restaurants are located.

High end boutique B&BPosted Oct 1, 2015 on Hotels
Comfortable, well located, professional B&B. Welcoming helpful owners. good breakfast with ample choice. We prefer a separate bathroom( bath in the bedroom) Pillows a bit firm.

Great First B&B ExperiencePosted Sep 22, 2015
Pros: Our favorite parts about this B&B were the owners, the location, the ambience of a B&B, the library, and the breakfast.
Cons: Our room was nice enough, but I could see it getting some TLC.
Location: Lower Cascade Falls Perimeter Trail Mouses Chocolates & Coffee Bon Ton (fancy restaurant) Ouray Brewery (great beer, great view, overpriced food)
The China Clipper Inn was our first B&B experience, and it was a very good one. The inn is quaint, has an outdoor hot tub (we didn't use it), an incredibly nice staff (the couple who owns it lives right across the street), and a tasty breakfast. The room we stayed in was on the main floor, outside by the hot tub (might have been room #7?). The room wasn't insanely nice or anything, but did the trick. My main concern about B&B's was that while I like other people, I don't like being forced to talk to them. I felt very comfortable at the China Clipper, and it wasn't concern. My favorite part of the stay had to be talking to the owners in the morning and getting the low down on an awesome place to hike that was much less touristy than the place we were originally planning to visit.
