Pleasantly surprised by the warm, friendly welcome and cleanliness of our room. The room was well laid out with plenty of room and good quality furnishings also. Although the room was at the front it was quiet. Unusually for a motel the breakfast was really good, fresh fruit, yoghurt, good coffee and there was plenty of room to sit down... More

Very comfortable room. It was nice to have the microwave to make tea and the refrigerator. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom floor had hair and could have used a good sweeping also the tub had hair. The rest of the room was clean and comfortable. Nice chair and desk. With a king bed I think a... More

Very comfortable, with large rooms. Family suite with three large beds (kings?) and still plenty of walking space. Decent breakfast options, and nice swimming pool plus hot tub. Even though our room faced the front, it was quiet.

Nice place to stay in Salida. It is an older motel that is well maintained, clean, and updated. It is very cool place. It's a 50's motel that is up to date. I loved it. The beds are very comfortable and new. The bedding was really pretty and new as well. The bathroom was redone with very nice tile work.... More

I hit a deer a few weeks back and had to find a room, on foot, in a thunderstorm in Salida. The Salida Inn didn't have any rooms available, but were nice enough to give a ride to the closest place that did have a room. Very nice staff.

We picked this hotel from all the good reviews and it did not disappoint. I was kinda worried when we pulled up because the hotel façade is really old-old school. Looks like an office bldg. instead of an Inn. Well, don't worry. My room was great. Obviously laid out like an older hotel but everything I had was new or... More

Welll, yeeha Yeeha S. Thanx for the High 5 Rating and comments about our little motel, the Salida Inn. You pretty much described it's outside the way I do. "A 1950's Roadside motel that is anything but old". Hopefully you will come back next year and see what we are about to do to the outside. It will be amazing... More

Just spent a lovely vacation at the Salida Inn and Monarch Suites. Can't complain that it wasn't like the photo, because the photo is the room we stayed in. It was a very pleasant experience. The staff was accommodating and Mike is a big Jersey boy who aims to please. The fresh fruit at breakfast was a delight. Not the... More

So many positive TripAdvisor reviews were enough ofr us to try the Salida Imm this time over another one of the chain hotels down the street we had stayed at a couple of times before. What a good decision. I can double-ditto all the earlier positive reviews. Our mini-suite was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The new furniture in our... More

We stayed in both a room and then a suite. Oh my goodness... we simply couldn't believe how nice this inn is! The room was very clean and nicely appointed with a super comfortable bed! We liked so much we wanted to stay longer. As our room was not available past our reservation date we moved into a suite. It... More
