Clerk (Kylie) was great-I checked in early and she picked out a great room for me. Room was large, quiet, had great bathroom, closet, TV, coffee, A/C, comfy bed, clean! No mini-fridge or microwave, but not an issue for me. Motel is right on Route 50, only 1.5 miles from downtown area. You can walk to it if you're used... More

Admittedly we reserved on line and arrived around 7:30, past the cancellation policy. Our fault. Walked into the lobby and it smelled like moth balls misted with the Febrese bottle on the counter. That's when the sneezing started. Walked toward our room and passed an open room door where a man in his shorts was sitting on the bed with... More

Our car broke down on July 4, 2104 on the side of Monarch mountain around 5pm. It was such a hassle already finding a tow on a holiday, impossible to find a rental and very challenging to find a hotel! So we got towed to Salida. Who knew so many people wanted to spend July 4th in Salida?? I was... More

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
