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. Thanx again Mike More

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

Natasha, Thanx for your really nice review of our little motel, the Salida Inn & Monarch Suites. Thanx especially for mentioning the great breakfast we put out. In the past, several guests rated our breakfast poorly because of the size of the breakfast area and they never even came to breakfast, they just assumed. Those that do come for breakfast,... More

My friend and I spent a night here prior to running a race in Salida. The room was cozy and clean- nothing fancy but the price is reflective of this. All of the linens are new and of high quality. What stands out about this place is the staff! I spoke with Mike the owner of the hotel before booking... More

This motel is a great place to stay. Our room was spacious, comfortable, clean and very reasonably priced. The continental breakfast was a nice surprise too. They are doing some renovations and by the looks of things it is going to be quite the place to stay by summer time. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This motel is really an exceptional value. We have stayed in salida at multiple locations, and this place is absolutely the best bang for the buck. The hot tub is actually hot (105 degrees) and clean as well. The room (104) was very clean and more comfortable than rooms I have paid twice as much for. The bedding is some... More

My friend booked this reservation and when we pulled up to the hotel, I was very nervous. From the outside, it doesn't look very nice. There is a sign out front that says, "We have 'real' furniture!" The lobby (which was undergoing construction and will probably be quite nice when it is done) reeked of cigarette smoke. I was highly... More

Came out to ski at the end of February 2015. Great place to stay. Beds are super comfortable. Staff is friendly and courteous. Location is convenient to downtown and only 25 minutes to the slopes at Monarch. We will definitely be back

Sometimes a TripAdvisor rating sets a certain expectation. The top ranking for hotels by the Salida Inn & Monarch Suites did exactly that. While the location and breakfast were convenient and the price was reasonable, if this is Salida's top ranked hotel, as a Coloradan I am underwhelmed. Our room was clean but the outdoor area was not, as cigarettes... More
