“Fantastic stay in a little town”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

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!

Very clean hotel. Great customer service with lots of local information brochures. Not far from any tourist attractions. I really enjoyed my stay there and will go there again next time I go to Monarch!

When it comes to lodging accomidations in the Salida area, I've never been satisfied. At $50/night I was frightened but this was the best room I've had in the region. I live in Denver and enjoy skiing Monarch for a change when the snow is right. The floor is laminate wood, the bed is firm but not obviously worn, the room had no noticeable odor, the bathroom appeared remodeled, the towels were upgraded and the place generally clean. My only complaint was the lobby reeked of cigarettes and the provided toiletries were gender-specific. I will stay there every time I visit the area from now on.

I stayed at Rocky Mountain Lodge around Christmas time and my room there was just perfect. I had 2 double beds, a kitchenette that was complete with dishes and cookware and a very nice bathroom. The room was very clean and everything in it was obviously well-kept and well thought out. The microwave was set above the stove just like at home! I was also very impressed with the amenities in the bath. This hotel went above and beyond. There was toothpaste and a razor in addition to the normal shampoo, conditioner and lotion. I would recommend this lodge to my family and friends hands down and I will definitely stay there again. It was moderately priced and worth every penny of it!!

My husband and I were on our way to Breckenridge to see our son after a day of riding the train at Charma, New Mexico and we had thought we would stay at Alamosa, but there were no rooms there so we drove on to Poncha Springs, Co. and rented a room at the Rocky Mountain Lodge. To our surprise the rooms were very nice. Very clean and comfortable and lots of free samples. Great coffee. I would highly recommend this Inn. We will stay there again. Much better than big guys

Room Tip: Great value and very clean.

Tried the Poncha Motel first but the clerk was rude and had a aggressive dog allowed in the lobby just turned around and left what a blessing, went to Rocky Mountain Lodge, lady was cordial and very pleased to see me. Our room was clean and quiet and comfortable, the bed was mildly firm. Surpised to see the free samples they offered, Two Schick Hydro 5 razors, four samples of Breath Right nasal strips, two sample tubes of Arm and Hammer tooth paste as well as the usual soaps and shampoos and moisterizers. Loved the landscaping and could tell it was well cared for. The flowers were colorful and quite a change from the gray, tan green we've been traveling through for 3 days.

Thank you for the wonderful experience

We stayed at the lodge around July 20th, and we loved it. The staff was friendly and curtious. Its a family owned property and you can feel it everywhere. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave its a positive/family like experience. Rooms are somewhat dated but very clean and comfortable. In essence its plain COZY. Loved it and will come back in the winter for sure. Thanks, there aren't too many places like this left!!
