“Meets Expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

The San Luis Inn is far from a luxury resort but met every need me had for our short time in San Luis. The owners live in a little house right next door and when we showed up after hours, he came over and checked us in quickly and efficiently. The property has very few frills but the rooms are spacious with DirectTV and a comfy bed. Unfortunately while we were there, the hot tub was out of commission but that happens sometimes. In the morning, we left pretty early with no sign of the owners. I could see how this could be a problem if you needed something in the middle of the night or in the morning. A huge positive for the hotel is the low price, clean rooms, and their devotion to the US military. Each room had a plaque commemorating the stay of a serviceman as well as several pictures and magazines in the hallway.

The hotel is owned and operated by people who obviously take a lot of pride in their property.
We found all the ammenities we needed for a two day stay or longer if needed.
The beds were comfortable and the room spacious. The handicap room was good except it had a regular bath with handles, not just a no-step shower.
The room was in great shape and very clean.
Check-in is very casual.
We called the owner near 8pm one Friday evening asking about times for local restaurants. He took the time to call and ask every restaurant in San Luis their hours then called us back with the information. That is old time service at it's best.
This is a very nice motel in a beautiful but often overlooked part of Colorado.

We stayed over night in this inn. The room is relatively big and very clean..I could still smell the detergent on the bed sheets. The air condition worked perfectly and the cable programs were enough (at least for us).
The only problem is..the wall is thin, you could hear the guests in the other room. BTW, if you need to check out early in the morning and you don't see anyone at the front desk..don't bother to call, just drop the key in the little basket at the counter.

Clean, clean motel for a mere $59. (Cheap hotels make me nervous but this was okay.) Great location for visiting the Stations of the Cross. The only thing is it was so loud! The walls were paper thin and even with other good guests it was loud. I would stay again but would take ear plugs.

The toilet and shower area was tiny. The sink is in the room, which I know some don't like but I do. Take your own hair dryer and shampoo. New tv and sattelite reception. Comman area microwave on the ground floor. There is a hot tub but we didn't use it.

My boyfriend and I stayed here the night before climbing Culebra Peak - which isn't too far away. We chose this option instead of camping on the Cielo Vista Ranch property (where Culebra is located). I'm glad we decided to stay in a hotel instead of camp because the provided camping area at the ranch isn't what we typically like for camping. (we like to camp in higher elevation, secluded areas - and here we would have had to be with other hikers). The rooms at the inn are clean and basic. We liked that they provided coffee at 5am and also dish network tv in our room.

The owner and his wife plus the staff go above and beyond to make your stay a comfortable one. Very clean rooms that are simple, but perfect for a place to relax and get a good nights sleep. Reasonably priced, nice and friendly town for eats and a quiet nights stay. We stayed for 7 days and we will return again this year. A beautiful and wonderful area to stay in Colorado:)

San Luis, Colorado is a small, quiet and quaint town that has seen better economic times. It is located in a beautiful area of Colorado, right at the feet of the Sangre de Cristo range, and has a very strong and proud Hispanic heritage. We were on our way from the Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado to Taos, New Mexico, and decided to stay overnight at the San Luis Inn. The hotel looks like a typical highway hotel, but it's in the middle of the town: two floors, about 40 no-frills rooms or so, Dish Network in every room. It was quiet, affordable and pristine clean. The building is pretty new, so I guess few people had stayed in our room before we did. There was only one other guest in the whole building. My wife and I had a chance to enjoy the hot tub for over an hour without being disturbed by other guests. The owners, Mr and Mrs Padilla, live next to the hotel and own (or operate) the gas station nearby. Very friendly people. Getting to know the town and talking to other town residents was quite an experience.

  • Liked — Clean, location
  • Disliked — Some travelers may not be attracted to this kind of town...
