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

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.
