We have stayed twice at Salida Inn and Monarch Suites. Both times we were very satisfied and we will keep coming back over and over. We have fallen in love with Salida (we are from Denver) and are here almost monthly. Mike, the owner is very accommodating and made our stays very comfortable. He and his crew have put a... More

Very friendly staff. Mr. Mike always remembered my name. They had a 3 queen bed suite so it was great for our family of 6. Very clean rooms and a very nice continental breakfast!! Thank you for making our stay enjoyable!

I highly recommend this wonderful place! Jay was over the top awesome! The room was very clean, beautiful view from balcony and back window ( stayed in 201). The motel is located near a walking/biking trail about 1 1/2 miles to downtown Salida, beautiful walk. If you plan on staying in the area, I wouldn't pass up this place. The... More

I was really surprised by the quality of our kingsize room (207) and by how clean it was. The large room was equipped with a great and very comfortable bed (slightly on the hard side, perfect for my back) and a choice of two different pillows with explanations. Further there was a microwave, a fridge and a flatscreen tv. There... More

Simon Thanx for your Hi rating and nice remarks about Salida Inn. Thanx for mentioning the clean room and comfy "firm" mattresses. They are Pillow Top firms. The choice of pillows you mentioned are a choice between a Medium Soft for back and stomach sleepers and medium firm for side sleepers. Thanx again for the nice review. Come back and... More

It is clear that the hotel is in the process of being renovated. That being said ... our room was comfortable and clean. Everything was updated and you certainly will not find a better value anywhere in town. They have free WIFI. We even used the outdoor hot tub and it was great! Breakfast is pretty basic, but there were... More

My friend and I stayed here a couple days ago, for our second visit in the past month. For the money this is the best value in town. Beds are super comfortable and the property is very well kept. Both our rooms on each trip were top notch in every detail including great linens and towels. There has been obvious... More

During my third stay at Salida Inn, I had the chance to be in one of the newly rented cottages, which I loved. The decor was rustic and had "Colorado written all over it. A gas fireplace made it especially cozy, and the bed was one of a kind. The frame was made of pine logs, and was extremely comfortable.... More

Hi Westlawn, Thanx for the high rating and nice review of Salida Inn & Monarch Suites. Thats for noticing our hard work and commenting on it. Those two cottages are quite unique as far as lodging in Salida goes, there are none like them, so we wanted to make them special. Thanx again for the review. Mike More

As with most motels with this look the expectations are not high. But here is different. There is a lot of care into the rooms of this motel. Not expecting a full service but breakfast is offered with your stay and the rooms are huge and clean from the floors to the air. House keeping did an impeccable job. I... More

The rooms were spacious, and very clean. This is not a 4 Star Hotel, nor is the Price. It is much better then a Motel 6, Red Roof Inn, etc. The Inn Room Coffee and fridge was very nice, and the rooms seemed spacious. The front lobby is undergoing improvements, and the manager Mike is always improving the place. I... More

Hal Thanx for the nice review of our little motel, the Salida Inn. Thanx especially for mentioning the cleanliness. Our house keeps are the best in Salida in my humble opinion and work hard to provide our guests with clean rooms and our all white bedspreads make it impossible to hide anything.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst skiing at Monarch which is 25 mins away. The rooms are big and clean, the breakfast is great - the much needed pre-ski fuel (its buffet style in reception, toast or bagels, fruit, yoghurt, muffins, coffee) and it is really close to town. There is a hot tub if you need it and... More
