We stayed for 4 nights in mid January on a ski trip. Since our last stay, the rooms had been totally remodeled. Our king room was beautiful. We asked for a room with a jacuzzi tub and we really enjoyed it. Mike is such a gracious host and he made us feel like old friends. The continental breakfast had everything... More

Super friendly owner, very down to earth. New ownership has remodeled the rooms and seems enthusiastic to continue upgrading to further enhance customers experience with their stay. The beds are very comfortable with very nice linens. I look forward to staying here again and seeing what new upgrades have been done. Good strong wifi signal at fast speeds

Hyme Thanx a million for your review of Salida Inn & Monarch Suites. Thanx for mentioning the comfy beds and the strong WiFi. When we spend tons of money on upgrades like a commercial wifi system, it is nice when guests notice it. Thanx again, Mike More

My family of 4 had a great stay while on a ski weekend at Monarch Mtn. The 2-queen room was very spacious. The microwave and frig. were very handy for snacks and the included breakfast was a huge bonus. What an amazing value! We'll definitely be back!

Quiet, clean, with a very accommodating staff. Excellent continental breakfast with fresh fruit. Large spacious room with microwave and fridge. Best value for money in Salida. Close to several restaurants and Walmart.

I stayed at the Salida Inn just a few days ago. I was fortunate enough to stay in one of the cottages in the back. My friends stayed in a king suite. The cottage was really nice with living room, gas fireplace, kitchen, big bed and bathroom. The king suite was equally nice with pillow top bed and nice seating... More

DYoung, Thanx so much for your nice review of Salida Inn & Monarch Suites. Thanx especially for mentioning the abundant breakfast and also the fact that you "never smelled smoke in the office". The size of the breakfast area is something that past guests have found important to mention and many of them don't come to breakfast and just assume... More

Compared to other hotels in the area (name brands) the Salida Inn was a relative bargain. We only stayed one night after a day of skiing at Monarch. The hotel is in a transition with the owners working hard to remodel rooms and hopefully get the hotel up to where it needs to be. We stayed in the King Suite... More

Kimod74, Thanx so much for your quite extensive review of Salida Inn and for mentioning both the good points you observed as well as the not so good. I apologize for the staple poke you felt. Actually, "no Border/cover" called a transition strip was done or not done if you will, intentionally. When we installed the new padding and carpeting... More

My husband and I have been visiting Salida off and on for a few years and love it. This time around we wanted to try a new place to stay so after checking TripAdvisor reviews, chose this one for a couple nights. It seems like the managers (or owners, I wasn't sure) are trying to keep up with the place,... More

EG I am sorry you were disappointed with our Cottages, Not "cabins" as you say and not "Prefab" as you say. In fact, they are site built and we used all large dimension lumber. I am a little surprised by your poor review of both the cottage and us considering the last 1/2 dozen other comments like "Perfect Getaway" and... More

Mike helped make my son's 16th birthday celebration a memorable one. I traveled from Colorado Springs to Salida for a weekend ski trip with boistrous teenagers and was not sure what to expect when we arrived. Mike made sure we felt at home and very welcomed. The room was comfortable and the hot tub was a nice way to relax... More

Our family of 5 were very comfortable in two non-adjoining rooms, which were very spacious and clean. The hot tub was perfect in subzero temperatures, and Mike even brought me out a robe, which made getting out easy. Mike was a great source of helpful information about restraurants, ski rentals, and any other local knowledge we wanted. I felt right... More
