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.

Our room was charming and super clean. The bed was comfortable and we had a great night sleep. Theresa was most welcoming and friendly. The courtyard was delightful. A very peaceful place and we will be back! Also, we enjoyed our Eastern dinner next door at A Mimi Cafe.

We stayed overnight at The Poncho Lodge on our route to Salida for Ride the Rockies. The owner, Theresa, was extremely courteous and went out of her way to be extremely accommodating. The grounds were very charming and the rooms were clean, comfortable, and decorated with a unique flair. The courtyard was beautifully decorated and very relaxing. My only regret... More

First off, VERY hospitable staff/owners. They were sure to be of any and every service and were always inquiring if we needed anything. There is definite pride in ownership as they were actively planting flowers, cleaning, touching-up all over the property. The courtyard was quite pleasant and well equipped for a small gathering. Lots of flowers, patio furniture, grilles, and... More

Thank you for your review because all reviews are important to us. We are glad you enjoyed the court yard and we do strive to please. The mattresses are new but we realize people have different needs of firmness and still hope you will come see us again. More

Small touches make the room fun! Art on walls quite unique, bed comfy and place is wonderfully clean. Super reasonable. Woke in the middle of the night to the sound of silence! Owner is friendly and helpful, steering us to a great Italian restaurant a few blocks away. The walls are thin and the sounds of running water between rooms... More
