My family and I stayed there in March for the Run Through Time 2014 Marathon. I called to reserve a room well in advance and spoke to Mike who gave great details on all the rooms available and what might be the best option as I was travelling with small kids. When we arrived he let me know that the... More

We stayed here while skiing Monarch in March 2014, and while they are in the middle of a remodeling project, the staff and even construction workers were polite and helpful. No odd hour construction work/noise. Rooms are clean and up-to-date. The Inn is located right on the main street through town so getting there is easy.

I returned to Salida Inn after having stayed there a year ago. How pleasantly surprised I was to see the beautiful renovations that have transformed this place.

We stayed for a couple of nights in one of their cabin units with a kitchenette. The room was clean. The kitchen was poorly equipped with only the very bare minimum. The bathroom was also clean, but run down - faucets sticking away from the walls, shower rod unhinged - generally an eyesore. However, the water was hot and plentiful,... More

Hey John Q, I couldn't agree with you more. This is Mike, the owner of the property and I personally hate that cottage. It is one of the originals that we haven't had a chance to remodel yet. I am not sure if I booked the cottage for you or if you booked it right from the web site, but... More

I stayed here a few weeks back.. me, my my girlfriend, and our dog. There were no more pet friendly rooms when I first looked online.

Douglas Thanx so much for your nice review. I truly believe in trying to exceed guest expectations when ever I can. I have found that if I give a guest honest expectations and then exceed those expectations when ever possible, word will spread that we would rather loose the business than not meet the expectations. That is why I made... More
