“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2006

I stayed here for one night and it was very pleasant. Outside of hotel is nice- lots of flowers and a little water feature/pond. Lobby is small. We stayed in a non-smoking king room. I was pleasantly surprised to see a little bar area with sink, mini-fridge, and coffee maker. There's even a separate sitting area with 2 easy chairs. Very comfortable and clean. Bed was comfortable-lots of pillows. I would definitely recommend this as a nice (but not fancy) place to stay in Salida. Location is great too.

The rooms here really are some of the nicest in the area. It is one of the newest hotels in town, but there are drawbacks, the elevator only runs from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. so if you check in late or leave early, you are taking the stairs. It's only one floor, but if you have a bad knee it's not much fun. There's also only one set of stairs on the south end of building. If there was a fire, I'd be scared to be on the north end, I'm afraid you wouldn't make it to the stairs in time. You can definitely hear everything in the hallway too. If I stayed again, it would be on the first floor.

Great location, only down fall is that our room smelled like cat urine. Discovered that a " in heat" bush outside the room was the cause...too bad it was growing into the air unit. There was no escape and had to embrace it! Hope for lightweight neighbors above because if not you will hear them galloping around like mules on their way to the breakfast trough in the morning.

Enjoyed the breakfast and the nice lady who showed us how to operate the child proof toaster. We liked to take our coffee and breakfast to the gazebo. Wonderful and friendly staff!!

Salida is wacked. Follow the tunes and go to the Beer Garden? Restaurant.
There are friendly locals who directed us to a amazing drive through the mountains to look at the gold Aspens.

Oh yah, the hotel... it was a great place for the $$ and would go back, just in another room (like on the 2nd floor!!).

This hotel is very nice. It has been completely renovated and the rooms are new and very well furnished. They have a pool and hot tob which my kids loved. The staff is also very nice and friendly. I also used their wireless high speed internet....awesome!

Would highly recommend.

Never having been through Salida, we fell back on the old reliable AAA Tourbook for a place to stay. This particular Holiday Inn Express proved to be less than expected. Of course, compared to most of the other Salida hotels/motels, it's probably a small step up.

The room was average-to-small in size, and could have used a bit of updating. We were continually subjected to noise in the hallway, as well as the thumping-about of what seemed to be a convention of peg-legged pirates in the room above.

The hot water supply was poor, as was the performance of the showerhead. Taking lukewarm showers is not my idea of a good time.

For $89 a nite I expected more - a lot more.
