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

Summer Thank you for your review of Salida Inn. Thanx for mentioning the comfortable beds and clean room. I am a little saddened however by your rating of 3 on service only because I don't recall you asking for anything. If you get a chance, please write me at the property and tell me how we failed you on service... 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

Just got back from a family ski trip to Monarch and we stayed at Salida Inn and Monarch Suites. We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage and it was great. Plenty of room for the five of us and very nice accommodations. Mike and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was great and easy to get before our... More

Very accommodating. We drove our diesel truck in the winter and Mike allowed us to park near an outlet to plug in overnight. Breakfast was toast, bagels, coffee, hard boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, milk, OJ. Small town hotel with good value

Rikk311, Thanx for your nice review of Salida Inn & Monarch Suites and for mentioning our breakfast. I hope you enjoyed the offerings.

Just got back from a great trip to Salida and Monarch Ski area. Our family of 5 was very comfortable in the large rooms. The 3 queen room is the best! Mike and staff were very friendly and helpful. We had to change rooms mid stay due to my late booking and they all assisted in moving bags and making... More

My family and I stayed at Salida Inn for a few days while the plumbing in our home was being repaired after a pipe burst.

After our experience here I wish we had slept in the car instead. We were treated horribly by the owner- harassed for heating up the hot tub, accused of smoking in the room, cursed at over the phone and threatened with outlandish fees.

Sarah Let's face it. Your 1 star review is based on the fact that I CANCELLED the remainder of your reservation and asked you and your "5" friends to leave my hotel. You booked a room for 2 adults but had 4 staying with you. At check in when I asked How Many Adults in your room you answered 2.... More

We made a last minute reservation for a suite while on a road trip and were thrilled with the accommodations. With two young children, we couldn't have asked for a better space. Large, comfortable quarters, a quiet setting, a hot tub, and a very responsive front desk. (Thanks, Mike!) We will definitely be staying here again.

My children and I stayed with Mike at Salida Inn over the Martin Luther King Holiday. The room was very clean and modern. Mike was very accommodating; I had lost my wallet on the way from Albuquerque and didn’t realize it until I tried to check in at the motel. Mike was very understanding and helped make our weekend getaway... More
