This place for 85$ for two people..sucked! The old blue carpet that is out dated and had wrinkles/ dirty! I don't even want to think about the blankets! Like what is on them! Shower is good for a midget, I'm 5'6 and couldn't get my head under it. Bathroom Is dirty. The heat is a joke! No accessible outlets for... More

This mom-and-pop, motel-style establishment would be a reasonable value at 60 dollars a night, but the owners have figured out that they can charge 120 dollars in trendy Salinas on weekend nights. Room quality, amenities were good for an independent motel.

I stayed here last year and am back again (June, 2013)! It is a great choice for a value-minded traveler. My room is very clean, AC works, TV has premium channels, the internet is fast. All of my needs are met. The shower is roomy, works great, towels are chubby. Plus I parked my car with a buncha kayaks on... More

The only way to describe our stay was HORIBLE!! Rooms are smelly, shower heads are so short even I had to duck, and I am 5'2. Cable my butt! Poor reception, older than dirt TVs. No breakfast like it advertises, no hot tub like advertised either. Oh they have one, but it is "always" being serviced. DO NOT STAY HERE!!... More

My family and I were coming to salida for a graduation. We got a great deal at this place as well as a great room. It was very clean, everything inside was new and nice. The bathroom was clean and new as well. It was an awesome place to stay while we were in town. Robert the owner has done... More

This guy is a real handful... Besides talking my ear off for 30 minutes while checking in, Everything was pretty standard for a cheap room ( the tv is really small) . A lot of things i come to expect. But, the next morning provided more interaction with this character( no coffee either). The check out time is 10 am?... More

Probably the cheapest place in Chaffee County...not luxurious, but clean, and everything works... Not sure what else to say.... AND you do get lotsa free stuff, toothpaste samples, etc. I spent about 5 days here in June, July and my bargain hunter self often conflicts with my fussy self! So if I say it is OK, ....trust me!

I guess that unless your room is right next to the router, you might as well forget the internet. Small rooms, "weird design sheets", no coffee, no fridge, no microwave but we slept. Owner is Polish, so don't start any conversation about the soviets etc

My wife and I stayed in this little motel when on our vacation in June 2011. Read the reviews and thought about it twice before we decided to check it out. Found it to be the best priced rooms in the area. The rooms were not large or new but very clean. The management was very hospitable and very helpful.... More

I had to grab a one night stay on my way home from backpacking and unfortunately this was the only place with a room available. Apparently, desperate traveller means over pricing a filthy room. There were small dead bugs between the covers of one bed and hairs in the other. The wash cloth hanging in the bathroom had been used... More
