Our Story

Grab a seat on one of our handmade benches and learn a little more about us here at the Red Arrow Inn & Suites.

Since the opening of the Red Arrow Inn in the 1950s, we have always been a family operated business with close ties to the community we live in.

Through a little research we have determined that the original owners who opened the “Red Arrow Motor Inn” also had another business in town called the Chipeta Cafe. This owner clearly was paying homage to the Ute Indian History that is so important to the story of our area. Chipeta was Chief Ouray’s wife and Ouray means “Arrow” in Ute, hence the names.

The feeling you get when you walk in the door is a sense of community and family. A feeling of refuge from the busy outside world.  Stay with us and experience the difference of an independent, family run inn that cares about the details. Here you can relax, recharge and enjoy the beauty of Southwestern Colorado.
