Stayed here overnight with family and will definitely be staying here again! Rooms were very clean and comfortable and the pool/hot tub area was very inviting. The property was quiet despite being right off Hwy 50 and the staff were welcoming. Walking distance to many restaurants and attractions like mini-golf, parks and the Salida Museum, also not far from Historic... More

We were here for three nights visiting relatives. Parts of the hotel are being remodeled and updated. Doing a good job. Room was great - we especially liked the built in frig and microwave. There was WiFi and a good sized TV. The tub/shower could use a safety bar. Was a bit slippery. The owner was very accommodating about our... More

This is a pretty place to stay, however, I will not return. Stayed with my adult children and after a day visiting a local brewery we came back to the room to try what we purchased plus some other local craft beers. Some we had to pour out because we didnt like them. It must have made the room smell... More

Mary, “We learn humility through accepting humiliations cheerfully.” Mother Teresa I am sorry you felt humiliated, but imagine how humiliated I was when I had to tell the guest that was due to check in the day you left that I could not give him the room because it smelled of what you say was alcohol. You left in the... More

This little gem is super clean and shows excellent attention to detai and quietl. Breakfast was simple but included fresh-cut fruit. In-room coffee Wolfgang Puck. Good quality towels. Squeaky clean hot tub and heated pool. Nice view of the surrounding mountains. The owners take great pride in their place.

terry_gillespie2003 Wow, what a nice review of our little motel in the Rockies, the Salida Inn. Thanx especially for the "outrageously clean" part. We are one of the few properties in Salida who keeps our house keepers year round, even when it gets slow. We never lay anyone of like some others do and so we end up with dedicated... More

Can't beat the Salida Inn & Monarch Suites! The rooms are nicely furnished with the feel of a western bed & breakfast, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the spa/pool was great for the kids. Even better is that their rates are phenomenal for what they provide. Lastly, I really like that they are constantly looking to improve the... More

This property has a new owner, and he has done an excellent job of refurbishing this motel. I was impressed. We had a nice corner room with a view of the mountains behind Salida. The bathroom and everything else looked new. We had 2 queens, and all the rooms are not this large, but it was very large, especially in... More

We stayed one night after rafting in the Royal Gorge, so we were exhausted and did not take advantage of the hotel pool and large hot tub, but we greatly enjoyed the view of the mountains, friendly conversations with staff and fellow visitors who shared experiences and knowledge of the area. Our room was very nice and big, the bed... More

All of the staff was attentive and friendly. You can tell that the owners truly care about this place. The hot tub was a fun bonus for us. It has a pretty good view of mountains. The breakfast was tasty, too. Thanks for a great stay!

This place far exceeded my expectations! Even with all the great reviews. The bedding was some of the best I've ever had, at any hotel. The owner was extremely nice and provided an adequate spread for breakfast. I visit the area quite often and this is by far the best stay around. We are going back soon.
