I got in late and left early, so didn't meet management, but what a nice surprise for an older motor court type of property. The room was completely refurbished with log pole frame bed, plush mattress, new carpet, custom tile in the bathroom with oversize towels and a micro and fridge. A great value!

The Budget Lodge in Salida Colorado is owned by some really great people who bent over backwards to make our stay great. The theme of the rooms is western, the beds massive and rooms had a microwave and fridge. Bathroom was a little small, but it worked. Late check out was a breeze. Really great people.

Not alot of space to move around but I didn’t expect to do yoga in my room anyways. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the western theme right on!! The owner was friendly and helpful giving us a few restaurant recommendations and sharing the story of his move from Las Vegas. The “parking lot” is filled with... More

We stayed here due to other Trip Advisor feedback. We loved it. It says "rustic rooms" on their signage which could put some people off but we found it charming and creative. Most important, it was CLEAN. They covered so many amenities that some of our other pricier places did not. Great value and fair for what you get. Not... More

This is not a luxury hotel!!!!! But that's not what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were extremely clean - including the bathrooms. It's just what we needed for an inexpensive night prior to rafting the next day. We even received a military discount. The only real issue we had was the smell of cigarette... More

We stayed here for a night on our way to Dillon. It's a nice little motel, and the price is right. The rooms are small, but clean and well kept. We had a king size bed, a full kitchenette and a tiny bathroom. The fridge and the heater were noisy, which can be a problem for light sleepers since the... More

It's one of those old motels, scrupulously clean. Despite being right on US 50, we heard no highway noise - drowned out by the window unit, which didn't quite cover the noise of the motorcycles at the next unit. The promised wifi never manifested itself. The tiny shower drained so slowly and the basin was so shallow that I was... More

This motel was the cutest motel ever. We stayed here as we were passing through on vacation .. The owners Patty And Robert have remodeled the rooms and the grounds. They put a lot of thought and love into the design of the rooms and grounds. The beds and pillows were very comfortable.. There hospitality was the best.. Thank you... More

We weren't sure where we were staying and ended up in Salida. We found a wine festival in the main part of town unexpectedly and live music was pouring into the streets from the bars. A cute little town with a river we decided to stay in Salida for the night. However we called 5 hotels and they were completely... More
