We booked last minute, and paid top price, but we were pleased with this 50s motel. It was clean and Warm. Definitely a mom & pop hotel. They aren't a chain, and take pride in their property. Everything in their ad is true except... There was no stenciling in our room. I think it was freshly painted 😀.

We always stay at the Circle R when passing through Salida. I bring groups of British Motorcycle riders through the area and everyone loves the character and style of the motel. Pam and Lee always make us welcome and the motel is spotlessly clean and of course is sensibly priced. I don't understand why people want to pay more to... More

In my 40 years of work related travel and staying in motels, hotels I was more than pleasantly surprised by what I experienced at the Circle R Motel. It is a 1960’s vintage motel so the outside may not appeal to some but this is a case not to judge the book by its cover which I did the year... More

This is an older property. The room was clean enough and well-appointed enough. The location on the main street was good enough and within walking distance of a nice place to eat -- and downtown for that matter. I'm not sure the hot tub was working and, while there was a laundry, the office was not staffed during the day.... More

We occasionally get comments on the hot tub being locked. Our insurance company REQUIRES the hot tub be SECURE. If it was not locked, people could get into the hot tub in the middle of the night which they have and its DANGEROUS. To be let into the hot tub, one has only to call or come into the office...

Stay away... Keep in mind, we love old vintage hotels, and were excited for this motel. We stayed here last night with two little kids (started in room 3 and was moved to room 2). After being in bed for just a bit, I noticed a bug. Obviously, I was shocked and looked in the bed one of my daughters... More

We don't know who this Amanda Hand is, but she NEVER, EVER stayed at the Circle R Motel. If there were bed bugs at the Circle R Motel - firs off the motel would be CLOSED for business and second, there would be more reviews regarding bed bugs. What makes sense? More

It is just your basic budget motel. The staff was super friendly and the accommodations were clean, tidy, and well-kept. There's a hot tub in the middle of the parking lot, which was a little bit too exposed for me to try, personally, but I thought it was nice to have. Domino's is close - but there's better pizza about... More

This is a small older motel but very clean and well maintained. Just a stop off for the night on our trip. We were pleased with the accommodations. Nothing special, but a decent place to stay in the area. We often look for older motels because we like not having to go through the lobby to get to our room.... More
