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

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

I am so very sorry that your stay was not up to par. The motel has since then switched hands and is being run by an entire new staff I hope that you give us a second chance in the future. (We do night use scented laundry soap now for that reason, but it does have a light clean scent.) 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
