Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Big motel privacy with bed/breakfast care and comfort. Rooms reflect the owners' personal eclectic-meets-modern style. The detailed craftsmanship reflects pride and a genuine concern to provide a comfortable stay. The rooms and the staff welcome you as friends.

The inn has been completely remodeled, with excellent materials and workmanship. Very very comfortable, everything is just right. Great service and attitude. Hot shower, jetted tub, great beds, very clean. Perfect, felt like home away from home. Continental breakfast - all items were fresh and delicious. This is an extremely well-managed inn. Highly recommended.

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for a couples getaway. A very short convenient drive to the Cottonwood hot springs which was our main goal . We were very happy with the accommodations. I am always a little nervous about the cleanliness of any hotel room so I always bring my Clorox wipes along for door knobs...

The location is great in terms of easy accessibility and you don't hear the highway in front of the hotel. Don't be surprised by the outside look of this hotel, it looks really good inside! The people here are very friendly and the breakfast offers everything you need. I was positively surprised. I would recommend everybody to stay here!

After looking for a one night stay online in Salida, my fiance and I decided on Salida Inn- and we were very impressed! The only minor complaint was the bathroom door opened and blocked the sink- very minor. EVERYTHING else was amazing! Room was big, pretty quiet, very clean. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable I have slept...

I've never been so impressed with a hotel. I've stayed in many high end hotels, resorts, etc. I would recommend this place to anybody staying in Salida. The room was fabulous. Could not be happier.

We decided to spend the weekend skiing with another family at Monarch. Typically, we look for the best bargain when choosing places to stay. Our mentality is the room is just a place to stay as we are there to have fun on the slopes. Over the years we have “sampled” several hotels in Salida, but none like what we...

We have stayed at Monarch Inn and Suites for years. The new renovations are wonderful. We just checked today and it felt like we were coming home. Mike and staff were very welcoming and helpful. Nice job Jay and crew on the remodels. Monarch Inn and Suites is our "go to home" when we visit Salida.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Salida Inn & Monarch Suites. The exterior doesn't look flashy as you initially drive up, but most of us travelers know it's what's inside that counts, right? Salida Inn & Monarch Suites delivers.
