We stayed for 2 nights. The room was spotlessly clean, we had no issues at all. The continental breakfast was very good - not a huge choice but a good selection of fresh fruits and breads/pastries as well as cereal, juice and hot drinks. Our room faced the highway but we were not bothered by traffic noise at all.

Our room had been remodeled and it was large and clean. Towels are small and thin. Breakfast is boring. Lots of highway noise. Ok for 1 night. I am a light sleeper and the noise bothered me a lot. Also at breakfast we witnessed a discussion among the hotel manager and some of his employees about someone not cleaning a... More

Karen, Thanx for the High rating in spite of the negatives you perceived. I am really surprised at your comment about our towels, the heaviest weight/dozen available. Most of our guests who mention our towels rave about them. "small & thin" ? (were you referring to hand towels)? Our bath towels are 27" x 54", the second largest available. They... More

We were de railed by bad bad weather and had to find a good hotel. This place was perfect, not too expensive and super clean!!! Will be staying here next time I'm in Salida! Bed was soft and 2 kinds of pillows. The owner was kind and remembered my name.

William Thanx for your High 5 rating of our little motel, the Salida Inn. Glad you thought we were perfect, but in truth, that is something we, in my opinion are still striving for.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Mike the owner.....what a wonderful human being! The room we were expecting was not available so he graciously upgraded us to a incredibly beautiful cottage, where we stayed for 2 nights. The mattress, pillows and linens are 2nd to none. The next day after river rafting, Michael popped his head out back and... More

Just checked in and once I got past the slightly scary tattooed dude at the front desk, I was very pleased, clean, large suite, with large flat screen TV, free WiFi, Kuerig coffe maker, jetted tub and the management even arranged for deer to feed right outside the back door....see photo

The clerk went out of his way to find directions for us to a wedding we were in town for. The room was nicely furnished and their bath linens were 5 star. The pillows are equal to The Marriott. Very clean, with in room refrigerator & microwave.
