After reading reviews we decided to book what they call a cottage. It was way better than expected. Very private, looking out at trees and a hill, with the sounds of the stream a bonus. Lots of windows and natural light, including a patio door that takes you to a small balcony overlooking the trees and stream. The bedding was...

We enjoyed our stay at the Salida Inn and Monarch Suites. We stayed in the King cottage and it was very nice and roomy. It had a deck in the back and we sat there often to enjoy the weather and would see deer right out in back. The room was very clean and the decor was beautiful. The customer...

Wife and I are doing a road trip through Colorado. Picked up decent rooms in pagosa Springs, Durango, Telluride, Alamosa... But so far this little stay in Salida has been the nicest. A fatherly host, rooms that are very well updated and remodeled. This is the place to stay in the Salida/Monarch area. We'll be coming back.

When you make reservations in a hotel that is local and not a chain brand, you are always ready not to expect something great! But! This place is full of confortable things and details! Clean, the bed and pillows are superb, they even explain how your bed is made with the pillow materials and everything! Really not what we expected!...

We started with some doubts about being relatively close to US-50. The sign of the hotel promised real furniture. At the reception we immediately changed to a good feeling. Not only are the spacious rooms well equipped but also the noise level is really low. A choice of 2 different good pillows on a very relaxing bed is definitely a...
