We changed reservation to the cottage at last minute, easy breezy and so glad we did, it was roomy, quiet, clean, tastefully decorated. Sitting on the deck listening to the river and the crickets. Warm pool and hot tub under the stars. Mike and Jay were great guys and proud of the Inn as they should be. We will be returning here the next time we are in the area.

Hi RockyMtmom

Thanx so much for the nice review. Jay and I are in fact proud of our little "hidden gem" as you say, as we have worked day and night to bring the property up in quality and value. With guests like you who see and appreciate our efforts we will continue the process and hopefully by the time you return for your next visit, you will see even more improvement.

Thanx again,

mike

We stayed in one of their cottages the evening of 5-26-13. It had a full kitchen and all the other features. Nice and quiet. Free WI-FI.

Mike is refurbishing the place. The staff is very friendly and courteous. I left my I-PAD in the room when I checked out and a call back to the motel confirmed its location.Mike arranged to ship the I-PAD to my residence. Restaurant down the street is great for all meals. Enjoyed the stay.

Thanks Mike

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The beds were comfortable, the rates were reasonable. The kids played at the pool and hot tub. We had good internet access. Everyone was happy. The owner/manager was friendly and above and beyond hospitable. Would definitely stay here again.

Todd,

Thanx for the nice review. I hope you and your family were eventually able to get back into your home. I guess we still have some work to do to get those 4s up to 5s. We'll keep working on it.

Mike, the manager, was very generous and helpful with our late checkout. Jay, the maintenance man, REPLACED our A/C when previous A/C dwindled. Martina was very helpful and hospitable with local info and advice. Beds/pillows were comfortable. Location was convenient and view was beautiful. I was there for 7 days and thoroughly enjoyed every day! Highly recommend :)

Room Tip: Quieter rooms face the pool and courtyard

Hello and thanx so much for the great review. Martina, our young Croatian exchange student was smiling from ear to ear when I read her your review and that you remembered her name. We here at Salida Inn & Monarch Suites really do enjoy making new friends out of our guests and we all look forward to having you come by for another stay next time you come to Salida.
Thanx again,

Mike

The owner is so friendly and helpful. We had everything we needed. Our room had 3 queen beds to accommodate a large family, which is unusual. The beds were comfortable. I slept better than at home. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and deck areas. Salida was a great town. Next time I come, I'm staying here.

We had a great stay here. Mike and the staff were very friendly and accommodating, and were happy to move us into a very clean, quieter room without question. The room was probably an upgrade from the one we had booked, but they did not charge us for this.
As new owners to this establishment, they are working hard to make this one of the best, affordable places to stay in Salida.

We will return again!

Was a very big room with a king size bed, queen size bed, and a pull out love-seat couch. Has a private deck out back, the deck is small but nice. It would be a better view from deck if the trimmed the trees a little bit. The pull out couch had not been used in awhile when pulled it out it had all kinds of dirt and trash in the room (hint have maid clean inside the couch) also they need to keep a extra blanket and pillow for pull out couch in room. All in all the room and service was great. The bathroom had all you needed and there was a refrigerator and microwave also. There were also doing more renovations on the place. We will stay here again.

Ann,

Thanx for the nice review. I am sorry about the Pull Out Sofa, wish you would have notified me when you opened it, I would have cleaned it myself for you. As for the trees, I would love to trim the trees, unfortunately, their not on my property. I have tried to check with the owner of the farm behind me, he doesn't live on the property.

Come back in fall when the leaves are falling, the view is better :)
