“Great value”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

This motel is a great value for the price-conscious traveller. We had a very clean, comfortable room at half the price you would expect. The location is great: it is close to downtown Salida. I love that they offer a nice recycling center for guests & have free wi-fi. We actually prefer their practice of offering a lower price & foregoing a breakfast service: the rate is so reasonable that we can still easily afford a very nice breakfast at a restaurant the next morning. We would much rather do this than pay extra for a mediocre breakfast in a hotel lobby. We highly recommend this motel!

Room Tip: We like to stay on the 2nd floor. There are rooms close to the highway that you might want to avoid...

I usually stay in the big chain hotels when I travel, but since I had never stayed in Salida before, I chose to stay at the Woodland Motel based upon their website and other reviews. It was most delightful! It was very clean and comfortable. It was located in an area close to downtown and near the Arkansas River. This motel is more personal than the big chains. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Look on their website where you can see each and every room

We'd driven by Woodland several times in the past and ended up staying at a motel on "the strip". Nevermore! Friendly helpful staff, immaculate room, comfortable beds, well-stocked kitchenette and equally immaculate hot tub. Quiet neighborhood, close to the river, close to the real Salida and far away from "the strip". We'll definitely stay there again and would recommend it highly.

We found this motel on the internet and when I rang to reserve a room the lady I spoke to was very helpful. However we didn't really know what to expect but the condo we had was extremely clean and the kitchette was well equipped. The beds were comfy and we enjoyed our stay.

We love to travel with our dogs, so we chose this hotel because it was pet-friendly. It turned out to be much more than that. Our dogs were welcomed guests. Our white-water rafting trip took a little longer than we had planned, but while we were away they checked in on our dogs, took them for a walk and gave them water - we didn't have to ask. They wanted to make sure our dogs were comfortable. Woodland Motel is so unlike other places that claim to be pet-friendly then turn around and charge unreasonable rates for pets and demand ridiculous conditions. The accommodations were homey and kept in immaculate condition as was the entire complex. We really enjoyed this place and recommend it to anyone with or without pets wanting to stay in Salida.

We stayed here so we could be within walking distance of downtown and close to bike trails, etc. Older hotel, but don't let that scare you off. It's maintained to the hilt - they were always painting or watering the beautiful flowers -so well taken care of. The staff is very friendly and eager to assist. Our room was great and we loved having a full-size fridge and microwave. Really nice value and great location.

Room Tip: Need a bigger room? Ask for the room upstairs on the end.

The owners and staff make you feel like a very valued member of their family. The place is spotless and the outside fountain and umbrella-covered tables add to the relaxing atmosphere, in addition to the beautiful mountain surroundings. It's in walking distance to the historic downtown and I can't wait to return.
