I love this hotel, I came just at the end of the summer season, I had driven almost a thousand miles and aside from being charming and adorable, it was super clean, comfortable, and a great value. It will take a few more stays but it could easily be in my top 5 old school motels in the Western US and Canada.
The front desk was friendly and efficient, I could park directly in front of my room. The room was tidy and well organized and not cramped. The bathroom was large and very old fashioned, the main limiter being the type of low flow shower head that is endemic in Colorado these days. The best was very comfortable, not a modern pillowtop, but a proper mattress. The sheets were excellent, and After going to dinner I really regretted that I wouldn't be spending more time in Salida.More
