This is a very very old hotel and it shows. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The room was clean but that's as good as we can say. The room #9 we stayed in had mold I'm certain black mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. The room smelled mostly moldy. Queen bed barely fit the room. The bed...

Big King beds, full cooker, fridge, micro, AC, quiet and very cheap. This is a great motel, comfortable with an onsite laundry and close to loads of places to eat. Downtown is less than a mile away. Oh, and great views of the Sawatch mountains too.

They had Very Clean rooms and a nice staff. Easy parking and laundry machines on site. They let us store a motorcycle trailer and truck on site while we were riding for a few days as well. This place is a great value for a guys trip or just needing a bed when you have a lot of activities planned.

The little rustic motel doesn't look like much from the highway, but pull into the lot and the woodwork and statues will greet you. The room was very clean, comfortable, spacious, and the staff was friendly. The walls must be quite thick, because I didn't hear a peep from the other rooms or the highway all night. Prices were great...

This is a nice, clean, independently owned motel in Salida. The rooms are nicely decorated in a rustic, western style, rates are reasonable, friendly owner. No breakfast, but the room is equipped with a microwave, fridge, & coffee maker. (Mexican restaurant next door has a great breakfast!) we would absolutely stay again!

A friend and I stayed here for a couple of days and really liked it. All of the rooms have been remodeled over the last three years, so everything was fresh and clean. This is a typical "park in front of the room" motel, no breakfast, no gym, no pool, but a great little motel. The beds are new and...

Arrived in the Buena Vista area late, 25 miles north of salida, couldn't find any open campground spots and all hotels were full. Called budget lodge, owner said the lobby was closing in 5 minutes but took my card info and left room unlocked for us since we were 30 min. away. Room was quaint, but very updated and VERY...

Extremely surprised with the design and accommodations, most rooms have been remodeled. The owners take pride in hospitality and design. This place is definitely worth it. http://www.budgetlodgecolorado.com/Home.html

This hotel doesn't look like much on the outside, but inside you feel like you're in a log cabin. There is pine paneling on the walls and thick soft blankets on the bed. The motel and the grounds are well cared for by the owners, who live on-site. There are nice outside sitting areas, including picnic tables and porch swings.
