My fiancé and I stayed at the Salida Inn in late July, 2014. We were there for 4 nights and loved every minute of our stay. I actually left a very important drawing that my fiancé had drawn for me behind. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty. I would definitely recommend staying at the Salida Inn.... More

Wanda, Thanx for you nice review of Salida Inn and staff. I must say that drawing was one heck of a piece of work. I could see from the detail in it that it must have taken hours of work to create. In fact the house keeper who found it brought it too me and suggested that if no one... More

This is an independently-owned motel right on Hwy 50, with good access to Salida and neighboring areas. There seems to be a large variety of room types, so I recommend making your reservations carefully if you would like to stay in one of the recently-renovated and beautiful-looking rooms featured on the website. Our unit was nowhere near as nice as... More

HI CJLH, Thanx for the somewhat nice review of the Cable, Clean Shower and parking. I am a little saddened by the fact that you felt that your room wasn't as nice as the ones in the photos, but I think the web sites say that photos are representative of the rooms and that they may not be exactly the...

Having driven through Salida many times but never having stopped for the night, I started my search for a good place here on Tripadvisor. Expecting to book with one of the big name chains I read the reviews of the Salida Inn and was impressed and booked 2 rooms online. Within 5 minutes "Michael"called to make sure he understood my...

My family and I had two rooms here. We had the deluxe queen cottage as well as a king room. The rooms were fine, skimpy on towels and shampoo but the owners are happy to give you more.They are very adamant about not getting makeup on the towels and tell you how much they spend on new towels; I understand...

Very nice older motel, friendly folks, great beds and décor, best wifi! The only thing I could complain about is the pool was a little too warm, but it was great anyway!

Hi numzi Thanx for you nice comments about Salida Inn. We always appreciate when guests notice our hard work. Sorry if the pool was a little warm.

Check in was easy. Room was spacious and clean although it is an older building. But it seems updates are being made. Bed fairly comfortable. One improvement I could see being made would be to somehow brighten the bathroom/shower area. Enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool. Grounds were very clean and it was very quiet. Very close to downtown... More

I'm not sure why this is one of the top rated motels in Salida. Its an older place and they are clearly trying to renovate, which is great. Check in/out folks at the front desk were very kind. Room had a nice mini-fridge, microwave and coffee bar, which clearly was pretty new. Bed was comfortable and sheets felt very clean.... More

Stayed in five different hotels on this trip. This was the only one not part of a national chain. The rooms were newly remodeled and excellent. The pool and hot tub were the cleanest of our trip. The breakfast delivered and the front desk staff was outstanding!
