“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011 via mobile

We found this motel on the internet and when I rang to reserve a room the lady I spoke to was very helpful. However we didn't really know what to expect but the condo we had was extremely clean and the kitchette was well equipped. The beds were comfy and we enjoyed our stay.

We love to travel with our dogs, so we chose this hotel because it was pet-friendly. It turned out to be much more than that. Our dogs were welcomed guests. Our white-water rafting trip took a little longer than we had planned, but while we were away they checked in on our dogs, took them for a walk and gave them water - we didn't have to ask. They wanted to make sure our dogs were comfortable. Woodland Motel is so unlike other places that claim to be pet-friendly then turn around and charge unreasonable rates for pets and demand ridiculous conditions. The accommodations were homey and kept in immaculate condition as was the entire complex. We really enjoyed this place and recommend it to anyone with or without pets wanting to stay in Salida.

We stayed here so we could be within walking distance of downtown and close to bike trails, etc. Older hotel, but don't let that scare you off. It's maintained to the hilt - they were always painting or watering the beautiful flowers -so well taken care of. The staff is very friendly and eager to assist. Our room was great and we loved having a full-size fridge and microwave. Really nice value and great location.

Room Tip: Need a bigger room? Ask for the room upstairs on the end.

The owners and staff make you feel like a very valued member of their family. The place is spotless and the outside fountain and umbrella-covered tables add to the relaxing atmosphere, in addition to the beautiful mountain surroundings. It's in walking distance to the historic downtown and I can't wait to return.

Clean, Clean, very comfy, friendly staff close to everything. We have stayed in several hotels around the globe I think this is one of the cleanest rooms we have ever been in. I love the towel policy if its on the towel rack it wil not be changed if its on the floor it will be changed, after all we don't change towel or sheets everyday at home! The staff was very helpful. we were able to walk to most activities in town. The room was super quiet they even let me see the room before I booked the reservation. We went to Salida over Memorial weekend just to "get away" for a few days, I would do it all over again and stay in the same place. Thank You Woodland motel for making our stay so pleasant!!!

Room Tip: request a quiet room

There was very little traffic noise in the upstairs room. The layout of the motel was inviting and very pretty with the flowers growing from the window boxes and around the fountain. The mountains and hills gave a great western feel to the area. The staff were very helpful and even moved our luggage from one room to another when we decided to extend our stay. The "S" mountain is practically right outside the door.

The rooms are very clean and it is nice to wake up in the morning and see the mountains surrounding the area. It is pet friendly and the several times we have stayed we have felt most welcome each time. The staff is always willing to help and very friendly. We enjoy staying at the Woodland Motel.

Room Tip: You can go online and view the different rooms. The rooms on the north have the best view.
