I'm a bit of a hotel snob, and Salida does not have much to choose from in the way of higher end hotels. Adding to that, summer prices are crazy high compared to similiar sized towns in Colorado (at least the weekend I was traveling). So I chose this hotel with some hesitation since I haven't stayed in a "motel" type place for years. This place was definitely a pleasant surprise.
Although it is a motel with outside entrances, the property is clean and so well kept. The rooms look brand new with lovely furnishings and decorative touches. There is no bathtub, but the shower worked fine for us. The fridge and microwave were nice to have, and as a business travel, the super high speed internet was awesome (faster than my home internet!).
My 8 year old loved the pool, and actually, so did I. It was really warm and so clean. It is nothing fancy, and relatively small, but the cleanliness and warmth make up for it. Any parents traveling with small children have likely suffered through freezing cold hotel pools because their kids want to swim - this was such a welcome change for that. When my son wanted to go back to the pool at the end of the day, I was happy to join him.
This is a really nice little property. Nothing fancy, but clean, comfortable and well priced compared to other properties in the area. Don't hesitate to stay here.
