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. Guests sometimes complain about our small breakfast area, but for those of us who always see the glass as half full as opposed to half empty appreciate our abundant free breakfast more than the size of...

We took a last minute trip to Salida before the summer ended and stayed at the Salida Inn and Monarch Suites. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and double checked to make certain we were happy with our rooms. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the new beds were nice and cozy! We enjoyed the hot... More

My parents stayed here one night while my family stayed in an rv park nearby. Mike, the proprietor was so kind to them. He helped them with everything and even let them invite us all for a morning swim. They come to Salida often, and will definitely stay here again.

Esther Thanx a bunch for your nice review of Salida Inn. Your parents were a pleasure to have stay with us. Having been an ER RN most of my life, I just got used to caring for people. Now that I am in the hospitality business, I can't break the habit of caring. On second thought, I hope I never... More

We stayed here for a night because it was conveniently located between Denver and Santa Fe. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room, the friendliness of the staff and especially by the wonderful outdoor pool. And - oh yes, our daughter was happy with the superfast internet! We would definitely choose this hotel again should we ever... More

My brother and I spent 4 nights there while on a fishing trip. Newly remodeled rooms and excellent service. Mike, the owner, was a great host. The breakfast was a nice variety with hard boiled eggs a nice touch.

We spent two days at the Salida Inn in Salida, CO and it was a great place to stay! Room was large with nice amenities: wifi, refrig, microwave, continental breakfast, pool and spa. The rates were the best in the area for miles around given the amenities offered. We will stay there again next time we are in that area.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Salida Inn in late July, 2014. We were there for 4 nights and loved every minute of our stay. I actually left a very important drawing that my fiancé had drawn for me behind. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty. I would definitely recommend staying at the Salida Inn.... More

This is an independently-owned motel right on Hwy 50, with good access to Salida and neighboring areas. There seems to be a large variety of room types, so I recommend making your reservations carefully if you would like to stay in one of the recently-renovated and beautiful-looking rooms featured on the website. Our unit was nowhere near as nice as... More

HI CJLH, Thanx for the somewhat nice review of the Cable, Clean Shower and parking. I am a little saddened by the fact that you felt that your room wasn't as nice as the ones in the photos, but I think the web sites say that photos are representative of the rooms and that they may not be exactly the...
