This motel had been recommended by a friend who stayed overnight while traveling and I liked the looks of it online. However, when a friend and I arrived for a 3 night stay we were not given the cabin we had reserved. We needed two beds and ended up with a bed and a sofa bed, which was a problem... More

When we arrived, we learned that our reserved cabin did not have two beds, but a bed and a sofa bed. The rooms were small and dark. The kitchen was laughable and the bathroom was horrid...so tiny that it was claustrophobic. Even though staff attempted to help, nothing seemed to go right. My friend discovered that the stove needed a... More

This is a small family run place-maybe 9 in the motel section and 5 "cabins". The upper floors of the hotel section have balconies in the back,with close views of large aspens-rustling in the wind/transmitting a golden dappled light in the afternoon. There are views front and back, both floors of the hotel building. This is a small place,with a... More

This is a small motel on the east edge of Highway 50 coming into Salida. We stayed one night in room 6. This is the ski decor room with a tub, mike, and fridge. There is wi-fi access and a washer/dryer next door. There is also a fridge with all sorts of beverages next door-just feed the kitty. The staff... More

I can't say enough about this place. We stayed an extra day because we just didn't want to leave. The room (#11) has a full kitchen, large bath with jetted tub and a separate shower, and double sinks. There were full sized shampoo bottles in the shower, something I've never seen before in a hotel. The linens were exceptional and... More

I have to be honest here, I was a little taken aback when we arrived by the condition of our room after reading all the great reviews. I wasn't expecting the Ritz, but our cottage, #2, definitely needs some work. The carpet was dirty, the bedding was worn and didn't look that clean and the windows were so dirty you... More

What a great hidden gem - rooms are recently remodeled, clean, and comfortable - love it! The staff was welcoming and friendly. It is in a good location, a short distance from downtown and on the main road to other local attractions.

First and foremost, Mountain Motel is not the Marriott. That is a good thing. We had a great stay here in a wonderful town. The room was clean, comfortable, and had lots of character. My kids really enjoyed seeing the deer in the adjacent field, and being close to McDonalds and 7-11 were big benefits (not like anything in Salida... More

We had a nice 2 day stay arranged well in advance, which can be problematic at some establishments. Ira runs a tight ship when it comes to staying on top of his customer's needs. We had 2 rooms, 10 and 11. Eleven was a suite with kitchen, etc. We were there on a very busy weekend with a rock and... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Mountain Motel in Salida! The location is perfect - liquor store on site and 7-11 across the street. Washer and dryers available for use. The room and bathroom were spotless and the beds were very comfortable. The best part was the deer that visited every day right outside of our hotel. What more... More
