The hotel staff are very friendly. The free continental breakfast was very nice (had basics eg: no waffle maker or pancake/eggs). It was a tad bit chilly for the pool but the hot tub was nice. You pull up and you wouldn't think there are more rooms but back behind there are little cottages you can enjoy if staying for... More

This is an older motel with parking by your door. Beds were very comfortable and the facility was well maintained. Wifi was good and the hot tub was clean and warm enough. We had choices for food close by and enjoyed a meal at Quincy's steak house (unusual but very good). A very cordial welcome upon arrival and well worth... More

I chose this place for what I thought would be a one night stay. I wound up spending more time in Salida than I had planned. I had many choices of Hotels. My first night was very restful. Due to mattress quality, room size, TV quality and the perfect room temperature. The A/C fan was like a lullaby to sleep!... More

Salida Inn was a wonderful place to stay. It was and is above and beyond what I had expected of the Inn. The rooms were larger than most hotel/motel and very clean. They have continental breakfast, pool, hot tub, wi fi, washer and drier and their service is impeccable. It was a pleasure dealing with Mike, the owner. I would... More

James Thanx for your "Absolutely Wonderful" review of Salida Inn. Our staff, from House Keepers to maintenance work very hard to make sure our guests feel at home even though they aren't. It is always nice to know that our efforts don't go unnoticed. Thanx again, Mike More

This property has gone through a wonderful transformation from a low end facility to a real competitor for quality and comfort. The room was very clean and fresh with all new beds, mattresses, bedding, carpeting, and furniture. The tv and internet connection were fine. So it was a pleasant stay. Having said that, our room still had a ways to... More

Bill Thanx much for your really nice review of Salida Inn and also for your constructive criticism of a few items. We really like constructive criticism from our guests as it alerts us to things we sometimes miss especially during very busy seasons. The only thing I will mention is the toilet is a water saver type and does in... More

We stopped by the number one Trip Advisor hotel in Salida but decided to compare it to the Salida Inn prior to deciding where to stay. Both hotels were very clean and the management was very nice. We decided to stay at the Salida INn because we felt the properties were very comparable, yet Salida Inn and Suites provided a... More

Will stay here again next time I stay in Salida. Stayed in one of the cottages in back, room 305, it was very large, clean and quiet, close to the pool and hot tub. The cottage has a king bed and a queen bed, a small private deck, and is as pictured on the website. The pool was very nice... More

Hi KJHA1 Thanx so much for that really nice review of Salida Inn and thanx for the suggestion for a brighter light in the bathroom. I checked it as soon as I read your review and sure enough, the bulb was only a 60 watt. I increased the wattage and it is much brighter now. Thanx also for the alert... More

Arrived rather late and needed some good sleep after hard day on the road. Owner checked us in to a nice, clean room on second floor. We need more than two pillows so we missed extra pillows. Shower was nice, only one towel each and rather small & thin. Price was nice and included continental breakfast. We would return.

Thanx Mickey Thanx for the nice review of Salida Inn. I am sorry to hear that you didn't have enough pillows. All of our beds are supposed to have four pillows and there are usually extras in either the closet or in the dresser. As for the bath linens, you must have been here just when we were switching over... More

Very minor issues were completely addressed. The owner, Mike, was very helpful and courteous. We were there on our motorcycle and he provided a covered parking spot. We will definitely return to this hotel when we are in the Salida, CO area. The continental breakfast was quite well done in a very small area.

Steve Thanx so much for that really nice review of Salida Inn. Always much appreciated and thanx especially for mentioning the well done breakfast.
