Clean room, next door to the hot springs pool, quiet. Beds are poor and pillows are worse-had to use 3. Has a indoor pool/spa. No mini frig or microwave. A mini coffee pot was on site. Good price, good restaurant across the street. Next time I will pay a bit more for, hopefully, a better night's sleep.

Older hotel that was a perfect base in Salida for a snowboarding/fishing trip with an old college buddy. Definitely an older property but pretty clean and maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. Has a pool and older hot tub (ever see Hot Tub Time Machine?) which is always nice after a day on the mountain or in the river. Beds... More

Different room set ups offer great choices for mixed groups. Kids mentioned the pool was a bit cold, but that leaves the pool room comfortable to sit and talk, it didn't slow the kids down at all. Convenient location, large rooms. Hot tub getting a bit moldy, musty. Old school set up.

This place is perfect for any outdoor activities in or around Salida, CO. I love these hotels where the car is parked right outside your hotel room door. Very easy and helpful when you have tons of gear. Beds were super comfortable and the had a lot of TV channels. The room was perfect for crashing out after skiing all... More

We constantly stay here whenever we are in the Salida area, probably 6 to 10 times per year; in the winter for skiing, and in the summer for mountain biking. It is not fancy but we are rarely in the room except to sleep. It has an adequate breakfast which we enjoy during every stay, and a pool and sauna... More

This is not a fancy place - just a basic motel - but it is comfortable and clean for a reasonable price. A lot of the previous reviews are several years old and I think the place has been somewhat updated since then. The bed was comfortable, all the linens were in good shape, and our room was spotless. Several... More

I Should Blister This Place... I won't. If you know me, you know that value is everything in my judgment. I will spend more if I get more and if I spend less, I expect less. However... The customer service had a serious language barrier and the amenities need translation. We stayed there as part of a large group and... More

The place is a little tired - needs some tender loving care. The parking lot needs to be cleaned of debris and the whole place could use some brightening up but it was a comfortable room albeit also somewhat tired and outdated. We were tired and found this place as it was beginning to rain or may have looked around... More

We booked the room online a day before we stayed. We arrived late and when we got there the Internet booking had booked us 2 rooms. The motel manager tried to argue with us that we needed to pay for the booking fee of $20 for the second room we didn't need as he would be out of pocket as... More

Booked a room online & when we arrived 3 hrs. later, they said they didn't get our reservation in time & didn't have any rooms left. Kids were very disappointed as we had to get a hotel with no pool. Seems like really poor service.
