We stayed at the Mountain Motel on our honeymoon in January of 2012 and have stayed there several times since. We are impressed with the clean, well furnished rooms, great staff and overall nice ambiance. This is our go to getaway spot. Highly recommended!

Was traveling with my dog and stayed here on a one night stopover. No extra charge for the dog which was nice. The room was decorated with ski lodge type stuff on the walls, was warm, quiet, comfortable and very clean. I would definitely stay here again.......my only complaint is that the bed was a king size and when I... More

Excellent, less expensive, and locally-owned motel; really clean rooms and good cooking set up; adjoining rooms allowed for easy shared meals and visiting; new owners are young couple, nice unobtrusive folks -- great stay.

We just stayed at Mountain Motel for the second time. The last time was 7 years ago. My son insisted we return there because he had such great memories of staying there when he was 10 yrs old. He was not disappointed. Each time we have stayed in one of the little cottages. It is very cozy, but super functional.... More

The Hotel has a Mountain, homey feel. It has front door parking, which we liked, for loading and unloading. I loved the quilts on the bed and the bed was comfortable for us. We all appreciated the free wi-fi. My 16 year old wound up sleeping on the couch, not made out into the bed, however, because the sleeper was... More

This was our first time to Salida and we were in desperate need of a weekend away. This little place was affordable and received great reviews, so we thought we would try it out. We stayed in Cottage #2, which was perfect for our family of 4 and a puppy. Each kid got their own bed and so did we.... More

We had a very nice stay here and would def come back again. WE only stayed there one night but will stay there again this summer when we come back to the area to raft or even on our motorcycle trip thru the area in early fall. Very enjoyable and friendly

My husband and I were road-tripping through Colorado and spent 2 swell nights at the Mountain Motel. We were in room 10 of the new building, which was a spacious studio-like room with big windows on two sides, giving us panoramic views of the mountains, with no neighbors on one side, and no one above us. Two queen size beds... More

After a day on the slopes you really want a nice hot shower and that is exactly what we got! The owners are young but accommodating. Our room was clean and had everything we needed including a nice television with cable, a good wifi connection. and we had a balcony that overlooked the mountains. There is a liquor store that...

Mountain Motel is tucked away behind a liquor store, opposite the 7-Eleven, on the south end of town, so I've driven past it a hundred times and never noticed it - which translates into a more private and quiet motel experience than you'd expect on Highway 50. Despite a written confirmation for cabin 4, that cabin had been rented out... More
