Gateway Inn & Suites
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Salida
Reviewed August 20, 2011

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Gateway Inn. It was clean - except for hangars that had about one half inch of dust on them - quiet and appeared to be updated. The TV was small by today's standards, but it had cable and the reception was excellent. There is also in-room Wi-Fi, coffeemakers and hairdryers. Some rooms have microwaves and refrigerators, but if you don't need these amenities, those without are cheaper. Our room was very small but pehaps it was because it was "basic." We were on the second floor away from the highway and it was quiet. One minor drawback is that the sink is in the sleeping area while a towel rack is in the toilet/shower room and inaccessible unless you close the door. Also, to access hot water in the late afternoon, we were told to run both the sink and tub hot water simultaneously. This took about 5 minutes and is a waste of water.
Breakfast is typical but well stocked. The front desk folks were friendly and helpful.

Really enjoyed our stay. Check in was fast and efficient. Lisa was very friendly and helpful. Room was good sized and very clean, towels were fluffy and soft. I thought the bed was perfect, my partner has back problems and felt the bed was too soft for his tastes. Continental breakfast was good. We will be back.

If this was the 2nd highest rated hotel in Salida, then there is a huge business opportunity awaiting someone. It was very noisy, the continental breakfast below average, the hot tub a complete joke, front desk staff were generally rude, the TVs were antiquated with poor reception on several major networks (and they didn't have NBC), and the free internet was equal to 3g speed.

We gladly except constructive criticism however it's an overstatement to blame us for 3G speed performance ( that's all that is available in Salida at the present time ) or cable TV quality of picture. Perhaps both of those issues should be directed to Bresnan Communications, who recently sold/merged with another company and are providing less then adequate service to everybody in Salida area!

We picked this Gateway Inn as our base for a large group of motorcyclist friends meeting from all over the U.S., Canada & the U.K.. Salida is a beautiful area and we visit there often, so this provided a central location for many mountain area rides.
Rooms and grounds at the Inn were exceptionally clean and our group rate very reasonable. We stayed in an efficiency suite which was HUGE and well-furnished; just like having our own apartment. Everyone in our group enjoyed the Inn, the free breakfast area, and the location; walking distance to downtown.
I can't say enough about the on-site managers, who were extremely friendly and accommodating. They were very generous in providing us access to the on-site separate conference center building. This building was another reason we picked this hotel, and it worked out great!
The only downside to the Inn is that there is no swimming pool, so we spent some time at the nearby Mt. Princeton Resort pools to cool down from the July heat.
In summary, a wonderful week was had by all and many thanks for that goes out to the outstanding Inn staff!

Room Tip: Our ground level suite was nearest the highway but little noise got past the A/C

We stayed here as part of a motorcycle gatherin and were treated like long lost family the management could not do enough. The front desk was very welcoming and informative. the rooms were very clean and well prepared. A large car park with ample space and a separate room that we used for our get together and presentations. Laundry on site and close to local eating houses of all selections. 10 blocks from historic down town Salida. A lovely place to use as a base or for one night. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The inn was clean
And newly redecorated. I was able to get on wifi easily. I have difficulty with my knees, so I needed a first floor room. My husband and I were nicely accommodated with a room with two double beds. Theo price was right. The breakfast was well laid out. The only problem was when a crowd came. There was very little room!

My family and I stayed at Gateway for a family vacation. The ladies at the front desk were very knowledgeable and friendly. (Thanks for the tip about La Casa Del Rey!) The room was absolutely spotless, and breakfast was perfect.
Thanks for a great stay!
