The cottage is quaint and comfortable. Only negative observation, which is consistent with other mountain cottages, is absence of air conditioning. On a warm day it can take a bit for the place to cool. Overall, nice place to stay...and wonderful staff.

We was passing through Salida on a family vacation and ended up staying at the Mountain Motel! They family running the motel was very friendly and willing to talk to us about the cities and stuff to do. The room wasn't fancy, but was basic and what we needed. They did have a nice bathroom and the bed were clean.... More

great location to the GOTR festival. The manager was very knowledgeable of the town and helped us in any way possible to make us comfortable. We were walking distance to restaurants, even downtown is less than 2 miles away.

We stayed here for one night to break up a long journey. Our overnight stay coincided with a music festival. When I phoned the motel I was told that it would be $200 plus tax. As other motels in the town were all booked we decided to go ahead. We did consider $200 to be excessive but at least thought... More

The place was fine but very small and not very clean. The owners are friendly and the location and price are good so it was ok. And they allow pets which is a bonus. There was a kitchenette so I thought there would be a fridge with a freezer and an oven but there was not, but I made it... More

My boyfriend and I had a great time in Salida, the Mountain Motel is a very comfortable place to stay. Staff was very friendly and it is family owned. We always like to support family businesses. This is a great place to stay.

We found the cabins quaint. A nice style of mountain log cabin decorating. everything was acceptably clean.. Stand up shower, no tub. Also no breakfast facilities at the motel but a good pancake house close by.

We had to go to Salida for a funeral. Most hotels were way overpriced. We were just looking for a place to change before the funeral and to sleep afterwards. Great hotel, great price. Even had coffee in the room and a coffee pot! Great coffee. Will stay again for sure. Clean, confortable!

A wonderful 'home away from home'! We stayed in Cottage 3 & enjoyed the rustic decor. It was perfect, homey, clean & pet friendly. The bed was comfy but could use a step for short people as I have limitations from hip surgery.

Our room was very cozy and amazingly comfortable bed. The staff was very sweet and the place is puppy friendly which is why we first chose it. We will definitely be staying there again......hopefully very soon!
