We really enjoyed our stay here while we attended a concert in nearby Salida. The room was quite tiny but was clean and the bed was comfortable. The owner was very friendly! The courtyard was beautiful with a stream and a view of the mountains. We had breakfast at The Hunger Trailer on site which was also great.

You must stop and stay at the Lodge if you are anywhere near this area. The rooms are quaint and very clean. The courtyard behind the Lodge is to die for! The owner, Teresa has put her heart and soul into making her place beautiful and inviting! Deward runs the Hunger Trailer adjoining the property and he makes a mean... More

This place is not much to look at from the road; definitely old & with few amenities, tho it does have a hot tub in a nice little room of its own (we didn't go in because it reeked of chlorine). The rooms, tho, have been cared for & spruced up with antiques & interesting little "touches" to make them... More

Our car broke down when we were visiting Colorado and found this great place to land for a few days. Teresa was great and has fixed up this place and the courtyard is so inviting. The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished . I can't forget the green food truck. Thank you D for the fantastic wraps Shelb,Peggy and Don

I stayed at the Lodge for two nights as a stop in my Continental Divide hike. The experience was excellent: Clean, tidy, and owned and run by a very conscientious woman who made all of her guests feel welcome and attended to. This is not a faceless chain managed by indifferent clerks; on the contrary, it's a labor of love... More

Spent a week riding our Harley's in the Colorado Rockies and used Poncha Lodge as our home base. Clean, super friendly and very comfortable as well as well priced. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in a quaint, friendly and non cookie cutter hotel! Was refreshing to have the owner (Theresa) treat us like family. She's the best and... More

This is an older motel. The current owner has fixed up the rooms and made a wonderful courtyard. The rooms are small but adequate for a night. The highway noise was loud, might be better in the rooms farther off the road.

I have traveled through Poncha Springs several times on motorcycle ride but this weekend we made Buena Vista, CO our destination. Bring the peak of whitewater season all the Buena Vista rooms were booked. I remembered seeing the Poncha Springs Motel featured on the Weather Channel series Prospectors. When I booked the rooms I mentioned the TV show and spoke... More

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and it was GREAT! Theresa was most welcoming, they had lost power earlier and the internet was down. She couldn't process our payment at check-in, she just said, we will get it later, here's your keys, ENJOY!!! We loved the courtyard area and used the gas grill twice that weekend. They... More

The intelligent owner has taken a simple, old-style motel and refurbished it for a fine night's sleep. Cheery flowers, a good mattress and television. Local art graces the rooms and courtyard. A jacuzzi was most welcome after a day of driving.
