We decided to stay here based on the small fee for having our dogs. We weren't expecting much, because we had stayed here before about a year prior but this time it was downright gross. It's an older, out of date place, but last time it was really clean. Not this time. There was so much dirt under the bed.... More

If you are looking for affordable and simple lodging with friendly and accommodating mom & pop owners, this is the place for you! I had great sleep in a comfy room. It was an accessible location - close to restaurants, coffee shops and to downtown and the river (the river is 10 blocks away). It was obvious the new owners... More

Much to our dismay, while the owner was friendly, she lied about the entire experience. The hot tub was broken, the key would not open the door, room smelled of smoke, though it was a non smoking room, there was no soap other than the dispenser in the shower. The shower was scary; it was moldy, dirty, peeling paint. The... More

We booked last minute, and paid top price, but we were pleased with this 50s motel. It was clean and Warm. Definitely a mom & pop hotel. They aren't a chain, and take pride in their property. Everything in their ad is true except... There was no stenciling in our room. I think it was freshly painted 😀.

We always stay at the Circle R when passing through Salida. I bring groups of British Motorcycle riders through the area and everyone loves the character and style of the motel. Pam and Lee always make us welcome and the motel is spotlessly clean and of course is sensibly priced. I don't understand why people want to pay more to... More

In my 40 years of work related travel and staying in motels, hotels I was more than pleasantly surprised by what I experienced at the Circle R Motel. It is a 1960’s vintage motel so the outside may not appeal to some but this is a case not to judge the book by its cover which I did the year... More

This is an older property. The room was clean enough and well-appointed enough. The location on the main street was good enough and within walking distance of a nice place to eat -- and downtown for that matter. I'm not sure the hot tub was working and, while there was a laundry, the office was not staffed during the day.... More

We occasionally get comments on the hot tub being locked. Our insurance company REQUIRES the hot tub be SECURE. If it was not locked, people could get into the hot tub in the middle of the night which they have and its DANGEROUS. To be let into the hot tub, one has only to call or come into the office...
