I come to Salida a few times a year. I always stay at Salida Inn because for me it is a unique small motel with extra amenities. My favorite room is in a private cottage with a fire place and a small kitchen, very nicely furnished and stylishly decorated. I always enjoy the heated pool and a hot tub which... More

Booked this hotel for a one night stay as we were passing through Salida. Our room was very nice and clean. Everything looked new (like fresh paint, nice carpet, nice trim). The bed was comfy with two different types of pillows (two soft and two firm pillows). Desk, microwave, fridge, tv, dresser. We got fresh fruit (pineapple, mango, blueberries (that... More

I was thoroughly impressed with this little remodeled inn. They had great customer service and a great breakfast with fresh fruit. We enjoyed the pool in the evening. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. It was the most comfortable bed slept in for our long road trip. Thanks for a great stay!

I knew Salida Inn had received great reviews, but I was still a bit reluctant, I always try to stay at major chains- they seem more reliable. Wow, I was pleasantly surprised with this little jewel!

How about fresh fruit with your breakfast- there was watermelon, pineapple, blueberries and mango. And plenty to go with that-cereal, waffles, bagels, etc. The room was spotless- appeared to have recently been renovated. We have stayed at other motels in Salida and this is by far the best. We live in the Denver area and make visits to this area... More

We had a great experience at the Salida Inn & Monarch Suites. We stayed in the King guest cottage. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The staff were friendly, courteous and well organized. We felt like we got good value for our dollars spent here. We would certainly stay again when passing through Salida.

The experience did not begin as ideally as desired... We arrived at 12:30p, having an event from 1p - 5p; the front desk attendant was unfriendly, nearly rude, when we asked to check in.
