“Great Stay and Getaway”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

My wife and I stayed here on the third day of our vacation. The hotel is cute, quaint, and clean. It is nice to see some of the old motor lodges being refurbished and brought up to todays standards. I was impressed with the quietness of the hotel. It is about a mile north of Salida. The innkeeper was very nice and I would definitely stay here again. I would like to point out that while I like Buena Vista the hotel rates there are incredibily high. To high in fact for what you are getting which is very little. This small hotel in Poncha Springs met my very basic needs and had A/C which was very much appreciated after two days of tent camping. I would highly recommend this small hotel. No breakfast is offered, but for the money you save on your stay you can easily afford a breakfast across the street or down the road. If you are looking for a great place to stay in the Arkansas Valley area I would highly recommend this hotel and the towns of Poncha Springs and Salida. Go for a duckie tour on the Arkansas like we did. An experience to remember.

Room Tip: If you are doing this trip on the fly like my wife and I, ask the innkeeper to see the room before y...

The place is very clean and has lots of charm. You can tell she puts a lot of care into her motel. Lots of character. The only problem I had was the bed was squeaky and there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom(window didn't open), but over all very nice for the price. Would have been nice to have an ice machine outside so we didn't have to ask for it.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Lodge! I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and our property. We take pride in all the work we put into our hotel and we apologize for any issues you had. The ice machine is located outside but for costumers convenience it's much easier if we get the ice through the office rather than having our costumers walk around our property locating our ice machine behind the hotel. We loved having you here and are always welcome again! We hope to see you soon!

We only stayed here one night. It was a great place to stay. The room was fresh, clean, and well maintained. I was amazed at how quiet it was even though it was located by a highway. The front desk clerk was wonderful and knew a lot about the surrounding area. Salida was just 5 miles down the road if I needed a store or restaurant. I liked the free samples that were given out. The coffee was great in the morning too. I will be staying here again when I'm passing through. Can't wait for the winter months to stay here for my ski trip at Monarch, only 20 minutes away.

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was really quite and peaceful. The rooms were fresh and very clean. The owner was super nice too. It was a nice get away from the city. The scenery was really nice also. I went on a hike in St. Elmo, Monarch and went to Mount Princeton, this little hotel was perfect for all my destinations. I will certainly be staying here again! Thanks for a great stay!!!

We stayed in poncho springs for one night on our way to Colorado springs. We loved the atmosphere of the lodge and the reasonable price of the room. The rooms were a little small but we did have four adults in the room so it was a reasonable size for that. The Mexican restaurant across the street was fantastic and highly recommended! Salida is just down the road for necessities! All in all I would recommend poncha springs rocky mt lodge for the colorado atmosphere!
