I was pleasantly surprised at how clean the room was with upgraded bath and hardwood floors. I didn't expect that from seeing the motel from the outside. Price was very reasonable also. Nice view of the mountains from windows can be seen.

The Rocky Mountain Lodge exceeded my expectations. The motel is located in a valley, surrounded by breathtaking views. The service was excellent. I have never stayed in a place that held such an amazing clean quality. It was visible that the bathroom was new and it looked even better than the bathroom I have at home! The room itself was...

I booked a reservation about 3 weeks in advance and we got a room for a busy holiday weekend. It had a full sized bed in it and sofa, microwave, tv and a VERY hot shower. The price was good comparatively to the area, bit lower, but still high presumably because of the holiday. There is no breakfast, but it's... More

I stay here often and will always be back! Rooms are clean and cute and staff is very helpful and friendly. It's a great place to stay in the summer times and Salida is a great town to visit. I suggest this place!

Inviting and welcoming atmosphere. Very clean and well taken care of rooms and office. Coffee was available in the morning. I had a blast in Salida at FIBArk and staying at this place was the icing on the cake. Any time I'm in town, I'll definitely be staying here!

We stayed here a year ago, and stopped again this year for sentimental reason. This is a charming place. A small motor hotel, one level with infront of room parking. From looking, the rooms have been redone in the last few years, nice colors and nice fixtures. Very clean and roomy. There is a veranda with rustic seating in front... More

This was probably my third if not fourth time here that summer, rooms were always clean and staff was polite and courteous. Rooms are small and "old" but they are very clean and remind us of the 'good ole times'. Prices have always been reasonable. Can't complain a bit - Thanks again.
