Mike at the front desk is a very friendly and interesting guy. Ask him about his background. The rooms are large, very clean and tastefully decorated. This is a quiet, well managed hotel. The continental breakfast was really good. We can't wait to return to Salida!

We stayed one night at the Salida Inn and Monarch Suites and were very impressed with how clean and quiet our room was. The spacious room appeared to have been updated/remodeled recently and was tastefully decorated. The bedspread looked new and had a contemporary pattern, and the sheets and towels were definitely a cut above those usually found in motels... More

I was so impressed by the renovation, having stayed at this motel several times before it was the Salida Inn. There is no comparison with what it used to be! Very nice new rooms with lovely bathrooms, exceptionally clean, and the best continental breakfast I have found anywhere. The staff was genuinely friendly, accommodating, and clearly cared about making sure... More

I stayed in a standard room back in May. So, when my wife & I made plans to spend a week in the area we wanted to stay in one of the cottages. We were not disappointed. The staff is friendly and helpful, it was quiet, and the cottage (301) was very clean. You know it's quiet in the late... More

Stopped here after reading recent reviews. Very happy to find such a nice room in this motel. Clean, open, contemporary feeling. Also, helpful staff. Not located in downtown Salida, but on the main highway. Easy and short drive to downtown restaurants and stores. Will stay here again.

The property was in better shape than we had expected! They have really outdone themselves updating and renovating the property. Our room, for a family of 5, was spacious, had every amenity that we needed while on a 10 day road trip (we stayed here for 2 of those nights). The bathroom even had an whirlpool tub, completely unexpected but... More

The stay at this hotel was a very pleasant surprise. The bedspreads and shower curtain were beautiful. The beds were very comfortable and there were lots of pillows! The towels were nice and thick, too. We would certainly stay there again.
