“Truly "pet friendly," incredibly clean...a "home away from home."”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We've been staying at the Woodland Motel for about 5 years; just stayed there about 10 days ago. All the staff -- from the desk to housekeeping -- has always greeted our dog with a "welcome" dog biscuit to a pat on the head. We (the “people” guests) were treated with the same warmth and congeniality, too (“sans” dog biscuit, however!). Rooms are immaculate (this coming from a "white-glove" fanatic) and include more amenities than most hotels/motels in a comparable price range. The location is great, too -- within easy walking distance to a wonderful river trail on the Arkansas River or to the historic (and eclectic!) area of Salida. We’ll continue going there as long as they’re open -- absolutely the best in the Salida/Buena Vista area.

This place is very nice and I was really surprised by how nice the room especially the bed was. The bathroom was a little small but did not bother me but know it could bother others. The bed was absolutely fantastic for me who needs a nice soft bed. My dog was very excited with all the extra room. Unfortunately we never met the owners as we got in after 10 and were gone by 5. Only con was that the heat was not on and it was cold when we arrived. It did heat up within 30 minutes. Location is nice and quiet. Will stay here again next time.

Great little motel for the money only 5 minute walk to down town Salida. 1st it must be said this is a motel so there is not a lot of frills, that being said the winter rate was only 50 a night, and that was with my 65 pound Golden Retriever. They were very welcoming of my dog, and gave great advice on places to take her....the hiking trail behind the baseball fields, and right next to the Arkansas River was right across the street from the motel, and was a nice early morning stroll. The hot tub was well kept, and the front desk people very helpful with places to go. Just real hard to beat a place like this for the money.

We came across the Woodland Motel because we wanted to stay off the main highway - somewhere quieter. It worked out well. We stayed here for a few days while we explored trails in the area - great "base camp". The room wasn't fancy, but it was spacious for a motel and, all in all, quite comfortable.

On a recent trip to Salida, a local recommended the Woodland Motel to me. I had only been familiar with the chain motels out on busy US50. the Woodland is located just a couple blocks from historic, charming and friendly central Salida. There is a wonderful selection of restaurants, brew pubs, and coffee shops within walking distance. The motel is on a smaller street, mostly surrounded by residential neighbors, and is quiet. The people were very friendly. The rooms are modest, but clean and comfortable. The Woodland will be my choice on future trips and is my recommendation.

We stayed here a few weeks back. The people are very nice. We were tired, and they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. I cannot tell you how much that meant after a hectic day. They greeted our dogs with treats, thjey love dogs and it shows! My dogs give this place two thumbs up. There is a place to walk the dogs along the river, it was great. Totally relaxing.
The hot tub is very nice. It is new, and well maintained.
I always stay in large hotels, usually half of the year on the road. This was so different, it was like staying with friends. It was just a very relaxed atmosphere. We will go back.

We travel with our dog and have stayed at the Woodland several times. Not only do they allow her to stay, but they truly welcome her! They even offered us dog bowls and a dog bed. Not many places in this part of Colorado allow pets at all. The rooms are all clean, quiet and reasonably priced and the summer flowers outside are a beautiful welcome.
