We stayed in a cabin in the back. Very quiet. The back door allows you to feast your eyes on nice wooded area. Comfortable beds and air quality. The only thing I wish for is for nice places like this to create some more privacy for the sink area. If you want to clean up or have more privacy for... 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

BigFamily88 Thanx for you High 5 rating of our little motel, the Salida Inn and your review of our cottage. In fact, that particular cottage is my least favorite of all of our cottages but it is ideal for "big families". I often ask guests what they think of it and most like it, but I have some ideas that... 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

jhgd Thanx for your extensive critique of our little motel and I am sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. You wrote, “I notice they seem to respond to almost every critique rather defensively” – I call it honestly. Most Hotel Management Gurus suggest that hotels always apologize when a guests expectations are not met and as with your expectations,... More

Stayed here overnight with family and will definitely be staying here again! Rooms were very clean and comfortable and the pool/hot tub area was very inviting. The property was quiet despite being right off Hwy 50 and the staff were welcoming. Walking distance to many restaurants and attractions like mini-golf, parks and the Salida Museum, also not far from Historic... More

We were here for three nights visiting relatives. Parts of the hotel are being remodeled and updated. Doing a good job. Room was great - we especially liked the built in frig and microwave. There was WiFi and a good sized TV. The tub/shower could use a safety bar. Was a bit slippery. The owner was very accommodating about our... More

This is a pretty place to stay, however, I will not return. Stayed with my adult children and after a day visiting a local brewery we came back to the room to try what we purchased plus some other local craft beers. Some we had to pour out because we didnt like them. It must have made the room smell... More

Mary, “We learn humility through accepting humiliations cheerfully.” Mother Teresa I am sorry you felt humiliated, but imagine how humiliated I was when I had to tell the guest that was due to check in the day you left that I could not give him the room because it smelled of what you say was alcohol. You left in the... More

This little gem is super clean and shows excellent attention to detai and quietl. Breakfast was simple but included fresh-cut fruit. In-room coffee Wolfgang Puck. Good quality towels. Squeaky clean hot tub and heated pool. Nice view of the surrounding mountains. The owners take great pride in their place.

terry_gillespie2003 Wow, what a nice review of our little motel in the Rockies, the Salida Inn. Thanx especially for the "outrageously clean" part. We are one of the few properties in Salida who keeps our house keepers year round, even when it gets slow. We never lay anyone of like some others do and so we end up with dedicated... More

Can't beat the Salida Inn & Monarch Suites! The rooms are nicely furnished with the feel of a western bed & breakfast, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the spa/pool was great for the kids.

This property has a new owner, and he has done an excellent job of refurbishing this motel. I was impressed. We had a nice corner room with a view of the mountains behind Salida.
