Owners made us feel right at home. Travelling by Motorcycle, Lee accomodated us with everything from old rags to clean up with, to a cooler loaded with ice for our evening beverages. Comfortable bed, clean room, and good coffee in the morning!

We are not really picky and at least this was clean. That's what is most important. We were just stopping overnight on a road trip. I like to plan my next day though and I was thwarted here as the wifi did not work. That's really my only complaint. But for me, it was big.

It is old motel, however it has been painted and well cared for. linens and towels were nicest and heaviest thread count we have ever enjoyed. Lee takes very good care of the hot tub! Our grandchildren and us thoroughly enjoyed our stay for two nights!

We booked a family suite 3 weeks ago through Expedia. When we arrived we were told Expedia made a mistake, the room was already booked, and we were given the wrong price. She then offered me two rooms at regular price, twice what we had agreed to pay. I called Expedia and the story did not check out. We found... More

We overpaid for this place. We don't normally stay in nice hotels, but I almost left and paid for a room somewhere else. It seemed dirty, old, and scary. And it wasn't even that cheap! I was quite uncomfortable the whole time. I didn't even want to take a shower because I'd have to be barefoot in that bathroom and... More

The motel might be old but the rooms are clean & don't smell like so many old motels do. The beds were awesome! I have stayed at expensive places in Salida & they had beds as hard as rocks. The owner was friendly & is a dog lover. That rates pretty high in my book! Most places in Salida have... More

My brother and I were traveling through Salida on our way to Montrose. We stayed there one night. Room was very clean and management was great. Lee was getting ready to go fishing the next day but took time out of his day to help us out. Don't miss the green chillies at la Casa Del Ray right up the... More

We only stayed one night but the owners were awesome, our room was spacious and clean! There was even a 'free limo' ride to the local sports bar which we didn't actually use but it was offered! Will definitely stay there again.....love the 1950's style motels!
