This little lodge is a great mom and pops place to stay at in the mountains. We stayed here for a week on our little Salida/Chaffee County historic excursion this winter. It's location is great to get to all of our favorite destinations like St. Elmo, downtown Salida, Buena Vista and Leadville. The lodge itself was small and clean and...

Rocky Mountain Lodge was a small but comfortable place to stay. The 2 ladies running this lodge are so kind with their wonderful service; it was like nothing we have experienced before. There was a young lady in the front desk during check in, and she was so friendly and talkative. She could chit chat with you all day! It...

My son and I were traveling from Denver and didn't expect to arrive until quite late. Our room was open, the key was inside and all was ready for us to just collapse after a long drive. The next morning we were offered coffee in the lobby, was able to check in (and out!) and be on our way. The...

We (2 adults, 2 kids) arrived at the hotel very late with no reservations. It was the last room so we stayed in the kitchenette suite. The girl at the reception desk was very friendly and even knocked $10 off the regular rate due to us checking in at almost midnight. The bathroom was remodeled and spotless, as well as...

My husband and I made a last minute reservation at RML when our truck broke down. I expected our room to be simple, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how clean everything was. Great hot shower, clean bathroom and floors, microwave, and free coffee in the lobby from 7:00 to 10:00 in the morning. Very nice staff. Excellent stay.

Nicely remodeled. Very clean. Great coffee and tea options in the a.m. Beautiful flowers in flower boxes outside rooms. Needs deadbolts on doors. Overall a great place to stay while visiting the Salida / Poncha Springs region.

Dana, Thank you for taking the time to review our property! We are so happy to read that you enjoyed our lodge and had a "great stay." We just removed our deadbolts last summer because when guests keys would go missing or be taken by accident, replacing deadbolts and the bottom lock was getting costly, but, we apologize for that....

Staying at the Rocky Mountain Lodge was definitely a top notch experience. Check in and out was easy and quick, after a long drive that aspect of service was greatly appreciated. The room was simple, cozy, and very clean. If I ever find myself in Poncha Springs again, I would absolutely stay here.
