My experience with Mountain Motel was all good. I went to Salida to have Thanksgiving with family that have a cabin of the Arkansas river about 2 miles east. So I was looking for a convenient place to stay on the east side of Salida. I rented a cabin. It was clean, with a comfortable bed. It actually had two... More

After using this location several times I found that it is the go to location when I am in-town for an unexpected visit as well as a planned one. The Owner has provided high quality upgrades to the entire motel. Expect to walk into a clean room with service during your stay that not only meets the competition but in... More

We were here for a one night stay just passing through town. The room was not fancy but it was clean and comfortable. There is no view in the back. In front is a liquor store and the day we were there several people chose to hang out in the back of the store standing around their car talking and... More

We stayed 2 different times, but we will not return. I asked about staying a 2nd night which the husband (front desk clerk) said was fine. At checkout time the wife came over to our room and told us they rented the room to a higher bidder. I was not even given a choice to pay the high price instead... More

Adena M, Manager at Mountain Motel, responded to this review

The front desk clerk was told that maybe the guest would like to stay a second night at the time of check in. The room was then booked online before the guest could decide weather or not they wanted to stay another night. They were offered another room but said they would rather leave than move their belongings. More

Cutely decorated. Located on the highway but rooms or back far enough so you don't hear traffic. Kept clean. Beds comfortable. Well located for town or taking a wonderful hike not too far away. Rooms fairly priced. Would return.

I'm so glad I chose Mountain Motel. This property is great. "Curb appeal" is not it's strong point but just stop the car and get a room. My room was very clean with high-end bedding and a very comfortable king. The decorations very from room to room and are quirky. My room had an old ski theme. There was a... More

I was really impressed with the mountain motel. First off- I mentioned when booking our cabin that it was our anniversary, when we arrived at our room there was a bottle of wine and a happy anniversary note. The cabin/cottage was adorable and had personality. It was cozy and exactly what we wanted. If you are expecting a boring, classic,... More

The Mountain Motel is nice. It's on the highway on the edge of town. And although not in the downtown area, it's not too far. It is behind a liquor store and I had to be mindful of that when exiting because the liquor store patrons pull in pretty fast. The room was nice, clean and had a shared yard... More

I most enjoyed the comfortable bed, nice sheets and blankets, and shower/shower head with water pressure. We were able to stay in the room we requested (#9 second floor w/a balcony)... I liked it! We had a quiet 1-night stay. Our room was well-kept and very clean. I'm glad that it had a microwave, small fridge, and cups and mugs... More

Just spent 4 nights at the Mountain Motel! Cabin 3 was amazing!! Just what I needed for a perfect Vacation!! The small kitchen was very convenient, the bed was super comfortable and the sitting room was a great place to relax after exploring the area!! The staff is attentive and welcoming! After reading reviews about the small bathrooms I was... More
