Price was right. Room was very clean and seemed well cared for. This is an older facility nicely remodelled. Be aware that they used to build these places with much narrower doors and smaller rooms. I'm a big guy but it worked OK. Continental breakfast wasn't anything to write home about. A cup of mediocre coffee and a small banana...

We got the Deluxe Suite. Not a real suite in there was one room....but it was pretty big with King and Queen bed. Flat screen TV and free Wi-Fi. A bit outdated but not a bad value for $90 if sharing with another person. Could easily sleep couple and three kids. Free breakfast from 7 to 10 AM. We did...

When you pay an average price for a room you expect an average room. This ain't it!!! The Good: The room size was a little small for the furnishings. The bed was comfortable. The REST: The toilet tilted at about 15 degrees. So much that while sitting on it, you had to put one hand on the tub to keep...

We're one couple and 2 adults, and got last family room (2 rooms) with 3 beds for $168. It was Sunday, and some places were full, others expensive, and some very dingy. We stopped for one night, the area was beautiful, nice small town surrounded by mountains and located next to small river. The owners were very pleasant and suggested...

Too expensive for an 80's style room. Pool separate from hot tub. "Sauna" was just the steam from the hot tub in its own area. Had a chemical smell that irritated my lungs and had a non stop cough the whole time there. Haven't coughed since I left. Thank goodness it was only a 1 night stay as we passed...

Dear Jennifer, Thank you for staying with Great Western Colorado Lodge and then taking your time to write us a review. As Salida is a town for tourism, all motels in Salida have high room rates during busy season and on the weekends. However, we are still one of the cheapest motels in Salida. We do have old building, but...

This motel is clean, but dated. Room is tiny. Walls are paper thin. I can hear the couple in the next room quietly conversing. This is a 1 star place. I expected much more, based on the reviews I read online. Very disappointing.

The fabulously comfortable beds more than made up for the somewhat dated look of our motel room. A friend and I stayed 2 nights, and we booked a room with 2 beds. The dividing wall with pocket door between the beds was a pleasant surprise, giving us unexpected privacy. The place could use some updating, and my friend said she...

There rooms were decent size, free continental breakfast, plus they had a heated pool, a sauna and a hot tub. Right next to the indoor hot springs in Salida, CO. Great location easy to locate. Staff made sure there was always towels in the pool area. They also made sure they refreshed breakfast foods.,........,...... They were a little pricey however...

We rode from Denver to Salida and decided to stay at the Great Western. Poor decision! The rooms are very dated, and the place seems to lack maintenance. However, if you want to hear everything going on in the room next to you then you may well enjoy your stay I think we had a couple on the second honeymoon...

While the property is in good shape internally, the outside is not as appealing. There needs to be better signage and the grounds need freshened up. The room was very clean and the bed was very adequate. The staff is very pleasant. Breakfast was included and it was adequate for a quick breakfast when leaving. I enjoyed the stay here.
