I got a pretty good rate at the Comfort Inn a few weeks back, right in the middle of town too.

I'd recommend all three places detailed in my hot springs book: Best Western Plus Twin Peaks Lodge and Hot Springs, Box Canyon Lodge and Hot Springs, and The Historic Wiesbaden Hot Springs Spa and Lodgings. You may get better rates right now, before the "season" starts around Memorial Day weekend.

If you're not into hot springs, consider Ouray Chalet Inn. It's clean, affordable, there's an outdoor hot tub, and you can get a room overlooking Main Street.

+1 on both the Box Canyon Lodge and the Comfort Inn. BCL has a better view but is probably more expensive.

we stay here every year for the ice fest. Super cheap, very interesting, and super old hotel. Bonus, directly across the street from Mr. Grumpypants micro brewery. Have fun.

+2 for the Ouray Chalet Inn. Clean, inexpensive, right on main street, right across street from Buen Tiempo so it's easy to walk (re - stumble) to your room after having a litre of their very good margaritas, etc.
Have stayed in or near Ouray about a dozen times and really haven't had a bad experience at any of the places - mostly B&B's. Can't go wrong with just about any of the hotels/lodges but Ouray Chalet Inn is a safe bet.

Susan beat me to it! Depending on how much you want to spend, all these are awesome.
My favorite hot springs in CO are at the Wiesbaden, but it's a little pricey.
Box Canyon's pools are nice as well, but it's cheaper than the Wiesbaden.
I stayed at the Best Western once. Accommodations are solid; the hot spring is the least exciting of these choices.
Have fun!
