Even though we stayed in what the front desk man said was his "least favorite room" we thought it was lovely. It had everything you needed for an overnight. Mini fridge, microwave, closet (the door didn't seem to fit right, but still functional), desk, dresser, stand up shower. The pillows were specified to be for back, side, or stomach sleepers,...

Stayed for 5 nights while in Salida. Housecleaning was hit & miss. Don't leave anything out you don't want housecleaning to throw away. They want to be helpful however perhaps over helpful. Beds were extra soft with plenty of pillows a comfortable room. Employees very friendly and willing to help.

Dano Thanx for your high rating of our little motel, the Salida Inn. I am glad our house keeping staff were helpful, sorry if over helpful. It is difficult for them to know what different guests want. One past guest left two 1/2 full cups of cold coffee on the table. House keeper chucked the coffee and cleaned the cups.... More

What a clean, welcoming motel. I emailed asking the height of the beds b/c my mom has trouble getting in & out of the huge ones. Mike actually measured and wrote back! He was also very accommodating to my "iffy" arrival. 😃 Our room was squeaky clean and newly updated. The beds & pillows (4 on each bed-yay!) were SUPER... More

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.
