Owners, please do take this feedback in the constructive manner intended. I really, truly hope the owners do something to properly fix this problem. I would love to see this business succeed. We need more budget accommodation like this, especially for Colorado Trail through hikers. I spent 2 nights sleeping in the 8-person bunk room. I was in a top... More

Not that I've sated anywhere else in salida, but I wouldn't want to :) great hosts, nice natural relaxed vibe, good location, and right next to S mountain. John and Julia also know most (or are known by!) the locals so if you need any services, they know who to call

My son and I stayed in the suite where you get your own bathroom, a full kitchen with everything you need to actually cook, and, greatest of all, a really nice comfortable balcony off the back of the building big enough to accommodate a full-sized round kitchen table. The place was quiet, clean, and right in the middle of this... More

I had reservations for 15-MAY-14. I arrived at about 09:30 & found a sign telling me to telephone a number for entry. I had no telephone, & none was available at the door . I left a message asking for time of their return. I could not find a coin phone in the town. About an hour later, I returned.... More

Sorry to hear your experience went this way. You booked online which states our policies and check in times. Our front door sign also states our office hours. We're a small facility in a small town. To keep things reasonably affordable, we can only staff Simple Lodge in the evening. Staff have a phone with them to handle after hours... More

Just as you'd find traveling abroad, it's a bona fide hostel with bunk dorm rooms sans sheets/blankets and private rooms, one en suite. Super friendly staff and great pricing. Fabulously centrally located. Cons: Towel was super stiff and shower faucet wouldn't budge.

I had such a great time staying at the Simple Lodge. I spent two nights there and had a chance to meet some really awesome people. The location in Salida is great and the owner Jon was very helpful. The town of Salida was also enjoyable and the next time I pass through I will definitely stay at the Simple... More

...in the mountains. So expect through-hikers looking for a good meal and other outdoor enthusiasts, such as cross-country bikers and fisherman. The bed was uncomfortable, pillows were lumpy and stained, and the bathroom was never cleaned. Creaky floors and thin walls means you know where everyone else is in the house. Owners are great, as well as staff. Very accommodating... More

I love this place. So much so that I almost did not write a review. I’d like to keep it a secret insuring that I can get a room when I want one! But I am a sharer so here it is. It is a great place. The location is ideal for exploring the town of Salida. Located in the... More

I stayed there once before and it was satisfactory. The owner very helpful and present. This time the owner was nowhere to be found and the place was crusty and not recommended for sleep. I was given zero information on check-in. Key code? Laundry? I had to ask multiple times before I finally got towels and washrags. One of the... More

Obviously not a stellar performance by us during your stay. Its not the responsibility of guests to enforce quiet hours; if guests call us, we will enforce quiet hours upon other guests. We live on site and have 2 numbers one can call to reach us. More
