Stayed here in the past when it was some other motel. It's been updated yet the price has stayed as one of the most reasonable in Salida. The owner and staff are so friendly! Outstanding customer service-something you don't find too often anymore. Rooms were very clean, good mattresses and linens.

We decided to stay here based on positive reviews. We weren't disappointed. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds (we chose to stay in two different rooms during our stay). Though the fence around the pool and hot tub didn't look the greatest, both the pool and the hot tub were well maintained and wonderfully warm. The newly renovated suite... More

I've stayed at this hotel 3 times over the past 4 years, and though each stay has been good, the last stay I had a few weeks ago was by far the best. The rooms had been remodeled since the year before, and we really enjoyed the new mattresses! The reason I really wanted to write this review though is... More

Hi Meljames Thanx a bunch for that nice review. Staff and I really appreciate it when our guests notice our hard work. We try to treat all of our guests as we would close friends.

My friends were getting married mid-June in Salida so I booked a room for my boyfriend and I at the Salida Inn & Monarch Suites. Shortly before our arrival, two additional friends asked to room with us, and the owner did not hesitate to change our room accommodations. We called to cancel our reservation so that we could camp instead,... More

We found this wonderful spot as we drove into Salida for the night. Owner Mike Esposito was great and put us in a beautifully renovated room. It had a full kitchen, nice sitting area and new furnishings. We would definitely stay here again and hopefully for a few more nights. Joe Straight, Redondo Beach, CA

My wife and I stayed for three days in one of the cottages behind the main motel. It was clean, quiet, comfortable. The kitchenette would be ideal for couples or families who want to cook their own meals. The beds are new pillow tops, the interiors have been remodeled recently, with very comfortable furniture, a fireplace and plenty of room... More

5 days at this inn. Room is very spacious, well furnished, and nicely renovated with a very comfortable bed. Multiple channels of HBO a nice perk. WiFi worked fantastically. Convenient to everything in the Arkansas Headwaters/ Monarch Pass area. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. I highly recommend the Salida inn & Monarch Suites.

This is an older motel on Route 50, but set back from the road and noise is minimal. It is nicely landscaped (like you rarely see today) and rooms are updated with new beds, furniture, TVs, microwaves, refrigerators, and individual room heating and air conditioning. The pool in the back is clean and warm. Service is friendly and helpful. A... More
