That is the statement I taught my 2 year old baby Grand when something great happens! Mike has outdone himself with the upgrades here. We stayed in August and thought that unit was nice but these cottages are AWESOME! Both times we visited, Mike was so welcoming and the property is unassuming from the road but remember what assumptions make... More

Chose this motel from other reviews and wasn't disappointed. It is simple but great price and breakfast was decent. I'd recommend it to friends and stay again. Stayed in a room upstairs that was very roomy and had a recently redone bath.

Updated and well appointed rooms. Very clean and cared for property. Friendly staff. Good value. Glad we stayed there and spent the time "discovering" Salida! We have driven through Salida many times and are pleased we spent an extra day to "do the town". Would choose the Salida Inn again for sure.

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

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

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.
