We recently took a vacation to Salida for the first time and we were lucky enough to have picked to stay at Salida Inn and Monarch Suites. While this was one of the best vacations we have ever had, this place was simply awesome. We had a great booking experience with Mike and stayed 4 pleasant nights. Room was incredibly... More

For an older property, the Salida Inn is in great shape. Every morning we saw a hard-working fellow show up in a red truck and tend to the property. One day he worked on a flagstone inset, one day a surround with mulch for the tree, one day he blew away leaves. The room itself was attractive and as clean... More

Thanx especially for mentioning the Spic & Span, our Housekeepers will be delighted that you mentioned that and our hard working fellow, Jay says thanx also.

We took a couple of days during the week to go to Salida. The hotel is in the new area of town. The room with 2 queen (Murphy Beds) was more than adequate. I found the bed to be a bit too squishy, but the others liked it. The room was comfortable with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. The... More

Lisa, Thanx for your High 4 star rating of our little motel. When you visit us again in the future, we will have to try and improve that. As for the safes, we don't advertise that we have safes because in 3 years of ownership, not a single person has ever asked to use one so we are in the... More

Not too large but it is a convenient place to stay thats affordable and has all the necessary items. Comfortable bed. It is on the highway and I was concerned about noise but could not hear it in room at all. The contintental breakfast was just ok.

S H Thanx a ton for your high 5 rating of our hotel, the Salida Inn. Thanx especially for mentioning the room was quiet even though it faced the highway. The new windows we installed seems to have done the trick and our rooms, even the ones facing the highway are much quieter. Thanx again, Mike More

We really felt good about our 3-night stay at this hotel. My wife and I were in Salida to see family, mtn bike, and hike. The location worked very well for all of these. It is an older 50's-style building, and the layout fits that style. However, don't let that deter you. The rooms were spotlessly clean; the bed, pillows,... More

Just stayed for 2 nights. Stayed in a two queen bed room. Loved the bedding and the pillows were very comfortable. The remote controlled A/C unit was a plus. Very clean and a great rate. The owner was very helpful in answering questions about local attractions. Will definitely stay here again if were are in the area.

The service was amazing. The owner went way out of his way to accommodate us when we had to reschedule our visit. The room was big, clean, and comfortable, and we would definitely stay there again. We left early for a hike and so did not try the breakfast.

We stayed here two nights and this motel is exactly what we wanted. To us the most important aspect of a motel is a good bed and this Inn delivered. Our king sized bed was luxurious with an excellent quality mattress, sheets and pillows. The room was super clean. The towels were also of good quality. This is an older... More

We did not expect this place to be very comfortable and homey for our family. We checked in with Jay, a nice little fellow. With a large family we got the cottage in the back that had 3 queen beds and two rooms. Nice view in the back, close parking for our car, decent swimming pool and plenty of room... More

Our expectations were high due to all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. And yes, we know the owners have spent $200,000 renovating the motel. The result is a mixed bag, something of a work in progress... The first thing we noticed when entering the room were the large scrapes/flaking off of the surface of the desk, which gave a... More
