I spent 2 weeks at this cozy motel in Salida. The owners were very kind and very friendly and I stayed in a room upstairs with a beautiful view of the mountains. I told them I would definitely come back when need be. Thanks Jeremy.

Wonderful place! Unique and large rooms! We needed extra towels and blankets and they were up to our room within 5 mins to accommodate us! We will definitely stay here again! Would highly recommend. Beautiful views of the mountains.

Salida is one of our favorite places to visit & from now on we will always stay here. The owners were very nice and accommodating, and the cottage we rented was perfect for us and our 2 dogs. The rooms were clean and cozy. Perfect...More

This motel is the hidden gem of the Rockies! Small, quaint, warm, and comfortable. Our room had everything we could possibly need, and then some. We now have a new getaway place for when we need to recharge!

About
Description
The Hitchin' Post Motel, formerly know as the Mountain Motel welcomed its first guests in 1947. In 1996, six more rooms were built to accommodate the tremendous influx of visitors to the motel. The Hitchin' Post More Motel has been a family endeavor, being locally owned and operated since 1947... Over 55 years! In December 2011, the owners of The Mountain Motel felt that it was time to showcase the charm and history of the motel by changing the name to The Hitchin' Post Motel representing the by-gone era of the 1940's, 50's and 60's. After transforming the office area into a lounge and reading room, the energetic owners set to work to begin outfitting the remaining nine rooms with an exhaustive inventory of Mountain Western Retro furniture, fixtures and room decor. Their vision to make the Hitchin'Post, Salida's FIRST "boutique mote;" and reinventing an American icon - the roadside motel is coming to life!Foremost in the minds of the staff at the Hitchin'Post Motel is to provide guests with a comfortable, cozy, distinctive and memorable stay. One-size DOES NOT fit all! Each room has been reimagined to bring in the owner's own style to make each room personable and "one-of-a-kind." Room decor is "Mountain Western Retro" - reminiscent of properties dating back to the 1940's, 1950's, and early 1960's. We consider our motel an ever evolving work of "motel art," where updates and decor are an on-going effort. We pride ourselves on being the only local motel to bring the "boutique motel" experience to guests visiting Salida.A locally owned motel, the Hitchin' Post Motel is noticeably different in look and feel from other hotel/motel chains - we love it when our guests are pleasantly "surprised" to find that the motel offers much more than a room to sleep.We invite YOU to share our "Mountain Western Retro" experience! Whether it be... Sharing a bowl of chili on a cold day with other guests, or sipping the special "Hitchin'Post Ice Tea on a hot day... Your stay at the Hitchin'Post Motel in Salida, Colorado will be a memory to share forever and keep you coming back, year after year. Less

Probably. April is when the rates return to normal after winter. Call and check, though... there may be a discount for long-term.
