My husband and I made a last minute reservation at RML when our truck broke down. I expected our room to be simple, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how clean everything was. Great hot shower, clean bathroom and floors, microwave, and free coffee in the lobby from 7:00 to 10:00 in the morning. Very nice staff. Excellent stay.

Nicely remodeled. Very clean. Great coffee and tea options in the a.m. Beautiful flowers in flower boxes outside rooms. Needs deadbolts on doors. Overall a great place to stay while visiting the Salida / Poncha Springs region.

Dana, Thank you for taking the time to review our property! We are so happy to read that you enjoyed our lodge and had a "great stay." We just removed our deadbolts last summer because when guests keys would go missing or be taken by accident, replacing deadbolts and the bottom lock was getting costly, but, we apologize for that....

Staying at the Rocky Mountain Lodge was definitely a top notch experience. Check in and out was easy and quick, after a long drive that aspect of service was greatly appreciated. The room was simple, cozy, and very clean. If I ever find myself in Poncha Springs again, I would absolutely stay here.

Convenient (to Salida, Monarch, and Mt. Princeton Hot Springs), very clean, neat, and appointed with everything you need. In fact, we couldn't think of anything we needed that we didn't already have there. Clearly, the owner clearly cares about the property and their guests. Upgrades are apparently made regularly. Great service from the front desk. Good coffee in the morning.... More
