We didn't have any problems with the Silver Ridge Lodge and would stay again if in the area. Salida is a small town, and the Silver Ridge Lodge is an independent type facility - not a chain. We had a second floor room, with a shower. The sink vanity was outside of the toilet/shower. Everything was very clean. The pool was not in season (September), but the hot tub was available. The breakfast was fairly standard (it would have been nice to have some brown sugar and raisins for the oatmeal), and got us going in the morning. There was not a hair-dryer in the room, but I understand you could get one from the front desk. The rooms opened to the outside, and it was a short walk accross the parking lot to the reception area and Garden/Breakfast room. For a budget stay in a small town, it was clean and comfortable. The owner was very nice.

The motel is just off highway 50 on the west end of Salida. It is a short drive into downtown. It is close to a couple of restaurants within walking distance.
Stayed one night in 2nd floor room. Pleasant early check in with owner. Room was very clean with good quality furnishings and in good decorative order. A smallish shower and toilet with washbasin outside.
Benches were provided on balcony outside room to sit outside. The roof top patio was a great idea but poor weather prevented it's use.
The pool and spa looked ok but we did not use due to weather.
The complimentary continental breakfast was fine apart from the use of plastic cutlery and crockery.
Another negative was the lack of laundry facilities.
The car park would be very tight if the motel was at full capacity(42 rooms).
This is a quality motel and we would stay here again.

We usually stay at major "chain" motels but decided to give this independant property a chance because it looked so well kept. We're sure glad we did. The room was large and very clean and was very convenient w/parking right in front of the room. The window on the back of the room looks out over a large field with mountins in the backgroung. The next morning I was looking out the window and a deer was right outside. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they have a nice room for the provided breakfast. I'll be staying here again.

One never knows what to expect in an older, independent property. I was attracted by the AAA sign. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The most important thing is that the room was clean, even in the corners. The sheets were thick and there were 4 fluffy pillows on the bed. The room rate made this a real good value. My only complaint: I was never told about the breakfast bar. In the morning, I went down and asked the owner where there was a good restaurant for breakfast, and he never mentioned that there was a free offering at the motel.

Room Tip: Take the second floor on the two story part.

My husband and I vacationed in Colorado for 12 days in August and this was one of our favorite
hotels. It was set back from the road and there were lovely flowers planted in the front. There is
a very nice sundeck for guests. We did not use the pool but we did enjoy soaking in the indoor
hot tub. The rooms were impeccably clean and quite large.

This hotel is directly across from the hot springs pool and very convenient to stores and
restaurants. We were rushed for time but hope to return to explore Salida. The price was very reasonable. The only reason we did not rate this with five stars is because we felt the breakfast
could have had healthier options. Most of the items looked like they had been purchased at a warehouse store (pastries, cereal, etc.). For the value though, you could eat a full breakfast
elsewhere.

Room Tip: If you choose a second floor room, you will have easy access to the sundeck. We enjoyed looking at t...

Our room was extremely clean, the bed was very comfortable and it was quiet - can't ask for much more than that! Staff was nice. Sliver Ridge Lodge is a pretty good deal for the price and is close to the Salida Indoor pool. The downtown area isn't far either. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are quieter.

This is a family owned and managed hotel. The cleanliness, and helpfulness of the staff simply can't be beat. This is the second time we have stayed here and loved it both times. Salida is a neat little town with a lot to offer.
