"Ride the Rockies" was scheduled to overnight in Salida, CO, on June 13th. A month prior, I searched the Web for motels. There was only one room I could find in the whole town - at Salida Inn and Monarch Suites. I booked it online and felt very pleased at the reasonable price. Three hours later I got an email from the web vendor canceling my reservation! I was crushed. My daughter, son-in-law, and two friends were on the Ride. Next morning I called the Salida Inn direct. Mike, the owner, listened to my sad story, and said, let me see what I can do. We're renovating the motel. I'll call you back. 20 minutes later, after talking to his contractors, he booked me in a King bed room at the same online price. Don't worry, he said, it's all taken care of. Your room will be totally renovated by the time you get here.
We arrived on June 13th, and with no hassle checked in early. Everything was redone, clean, and comfortable. Altho the motel was full, it was quiet, and Mike and Jay were very accommodating and friendly. We enjoyed our brief stay, but most of all appreciate Mike's going way beyond the call, to make good on the reservation. That's the kind of service that's rare these days!!
