Very accommodating. We drove our diesel truck in the winter and Mike allowed us to park near an outlet to plug in overnight. Breakfast was toast, bagels, coffee, hard boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, milk, OJ. Small town hotel with good value

Rikk311, Thanx for your nice review of Salida Inn & Monarch Suites and for mentioning our breakfast. I hope you enjoyed the offerings. We try to put out a nourishing and Health Assortment including multiple choices or fruit. I just can't wrap my head around the idea of a waffle maker.

Just got back from a great trip to Salida and Monarch Ski area. Our family of 5 was very comfortable in the large rooms. The 3 queen room is the best! Mike and staff were very friendly and helpful. We had to change rooms mid stay due to my late booking and they all assisted in moving bags and making... More

My family and I stayed at Salida Inn for a few days while the plumbing in our home was being repaired after a pipe burst.

After our experience here I wish we had slept in the car instead. We were treated horribly by the owner- harassed for heating up the hot tub, accused of smoking in the room, cursed at over the phone and threatened with outlandish fees.

Sarah Let's face it. Your 1 star review is based on the fact that I CANCELLED the remainder of your reservation and asked you and your "5" friends to leave my hotel. You booked a room for 2 adults but had 4 staying with you. At check in when I asked How Many Adults in your room you answered 2.... More

We made a last minute reservation for a suite while on a road trip and were thrilled with the accommodations. With two young children, we couldn't have asked for a better space. Large, comfortable quarters, a quiet setting, a hot tub, and a very responsive front desk. (Thanks, Mike!) We will definitely be staying here again.

My children and I stayed with Mike at Salida Inn over the Martin Luther King Holiday. The room was very clean and modern. Mike was very accommodating; I had lost my wallet on the way from Albuquerque and didn’t realize it until I tried to check in at the motel. Mike was very understanding and helped make our weekend getaway... More

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

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!
