This was a clean, quiet motel to stay in. The suite was roomy and a great value. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful even though there was no bath tub, only a shower. The suite we stayed in was right next to a construction site so there was a little noise, but not much. I would recommend... More

My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised by the Mountain Motel. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and roomy. It appeared that things have been remodeled recently, and it was well done. We would definitely stay here again.

We changed our plans at the last minute and spent a night in Salida to adjust to altitude before going on up higher, and picked the Mountain Motel based on Trip Advisor reviews., and were very pleased. Number one (to us at least) it's very dog friendly, with a nice grassy area right out the back door of the rooms... More

Driving to the motel I started getting worried but once in the room was very surprised. Spacious, clean, soft towels and comfortable bed. Walls were a little thin so you could hear the neighbors moving around but overall was pleased.

Salida has become an "IN" place to visit or live it appears. The Mountain aire Motel is a comfortable and affordable place to stay while taking a look. The place is clean, the beds comfortable and their appears to be recent interior painting. The art painted on some of the exterior walls is clever and gives it a nice feel.... More

I saw forget the chain hotels, this place has all the charm of a Colorado cabin in the woods in a convenient location! Thanks for a great, clean, welcoming stay! Located next to downtown on Highway 50, but yet I heard no traffic at all. The beds were SUPER comfy and the amenities (towels, glasses, coffee maker, etc) were clean... More

We had a great time staying at the Mountain Motel-our hosts were more than accommodating and we look forward to our next stay in Salida with them :) Wallbangers is a fun restaurant and bar only about 1/4 mile from the motel. Liquor store on premises is also a bonus!

The cottage is quaint and comfortable. Only negative observation, which is consistent with other mountain cottages, is absence of air conditioning. On a warm day it can take a bit for the place to cool. Overall, nice place to stay...and wonderful staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hitchin' Post Motel, formerly know as the Mountain Motel welcomed its first guests in 1947. In 1996, six more rooms were built to accommodate the tremendous influx of visitors to the motel. The Hitchin' Post Motel has been a family endeavor, being locally owned and operated since 1947... Over 55 years! In December 2011, the owners of The Mountain Motel felt that it was time to showcase the charm and history of the motel by changing the name to The Hitchin' Post Motel representing the by-gone era of the 1940's, 50's and 60's. After transforming the office area into a lounge and reading room, the energetic owners set to work to begin outfitting the remaining nine rooms with an exhaustive inventory of Mountain Western Retro furniture, fixtures and room decor. Their vision to make the Hitchin'Post, Salida's FIRST "boutique mote;" and reinventing an American icon - the roadside motel is coming to life!Foremost in the minds of the staff at the Hitchin'Post Motel is to provide guests with a comfortable, cozy, distinctive and memorable stay. One-size DOES NOT fit all! Each room has been reimagined to bring in the owner's own style to make each room personable and "one-of-a-kind." Room decor is "Mountain Western Retro" - reminiscent of properties dating back to the 1940's, 1950's, and early 1960's. We consider our motel an ever evolving work of "motel art," where updates and decor are an on-going effort. We pride ourselves on being the only local motel to bring the "boutique motel" experience to guests visiting Salida.A locally owned motel, the Hitchin' Post Motel is noticeably different in look and feel from other hotel/motel chains - we love it when our guests are pleasantly "surprised" to find that the motel offers much more than a room to sleep.We invite YOU to share our "Mountain Western Retro" experience! Whether it be... Sharing a bowl of chili on a cold day with other guests, or sipping the special "Hitchin'Post Ice Tea on a hot day... Your stay at the Hitchin'Post Motel in Salida, Colorado will be a memory to share forever and keep you coming back, year after year. ... more   less
