There are newer hotels on the highway if that's what you want, but these folks are very sweet and they enjoy visiting pets. The room was super clean, the bed was very comfortable and the location was great. They are set up for pets and they offer dog walking for a small fee. No bad pet smells in the room... More

This motel was suggested to me by friends based upon its proximity to where our function was being held. I was very pleased with the cleanliness, very friendly staff, and the location which was less than 2 minutes from downtown. I could hear a dog barking through the heating vents. Just served as a reminder that this is a pet... More

As others have described, a little dated and small but very well kept. Obvious attention to keeping things clean. The price was $54, week night, off season (January). I stayed on the bottom floor, room # 20. There was at least one group on the upper level but I could barely tell anyone was there. Much better than most modern... More

You'll probably think I'm family from this review but I'm just a traveler. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. Not super fancy but yet still modern and clean with very friendly staff even late at night. The highlight is the pet policy. Other so-called "pet-friendly" hotels should look to this property to see how it's done.... More

We do like surprises when we travel and so to travel with no itinerary or plans or knowledge is our usual modus operandi. I was beginning to wish we used my friend's method of calculating everything before the trip while traveling along the bleak roads of parts of routes 24 and 285. This was just at the time we needed... More

Heading back from 10 days in The awestruck and Midwest, we found ourselves in Salida as the day of driving from Utah wound down. Having read reviews we opted for the Woodland so we called. Cathy was a great help and booked us in over the phone. She was there on arrival and set us up in a nice second... More

We stayed at the woodland with our dog over a recent 3 day weekend. The room was very clean, and the staff was incredibly nice! The price was great, I think we paid $70 a night for a queen room and they even rented us a small fridge in that price. Although we brought our own, they offered a dog... More

We stayed at the Woodland Motel because it is close to where our son and family live. I asked for a small room - #20 fit our bill! The room and bathroom were immaculate; the front desk person gave me lots of information about places to eat (I wish the Woodland Motel had at least a continental breakfast.); and they... More

My son and I stayed at Woodlands when fishing in area. We had everything we expected and needed. Priced reasonably and competitive. Didn't use the hot tub, but several of the guests did. Maybe I will next time to relax after fishing all day. Nice to have a full size refrigerator in room plus microwave and 12 cup coffee maker,... More

We planned a 3-day vacation in Salida and booked a room at Woodland. They brought our dog a bed and a treat. Unfortunately, the rain of the century began the day we arrived. It was obvious we would not be able to enjoy scenery or trail ride as planned. We decided after the first night to leave. They were very... More
