The owners have taken an old hotel and put a great deal of effort into making it modern, clean and cozy. The staff is very friendly. Unfortunately, all the effort can't change the fact that it is a extremely noisy and hot hotel. Our rooms were by the busy highway and we heard traffic all day and night. If that wasn't bad enough, the walls are paper-thin and we heard our neighbors taking showers, slamming doors and even drinking a water bottle all night and day. We visited in the Fall when the temperature got very cool at night, yet our room was so hot that it was hard to sleep. The thermostat was as low as it could go and we even put on the AC, but it was still very hot. I would not stay here again.

We were passing through town and found a great deal at Great western Colorado Lodge. 1 king bed and 2 queen beds in large family suite for $150 . Great deal. The room was comfortable and the AC worked great. Clean comfortable place . We left town and we’re at least 1 1/2 hours away when my son noticed his wallet was missing . We called the hotel. They went and checked the room because the cleaning people had not yet gotten to the room. They called us back in 5 minutes and told us they had found the walker under the bed . Thy offered to box it up and send it express mail . When we receive the wallet 2 days later everything was there . Thank you for being honest people in a world that seems to have lost its sense of morality. Tim OBrien .

We found the Great Western last minute and were very happy with our stay! The front desk agent was really courteous, the room was super clean and comfortable and updated with mini fridge/freezer and microwave and kitchen table. Will totally make this a goto place for future trips through Salida!

This budget friendly place is nothing fancy, but it is clean and met our needs. Room was a tad bit cramped, and because the AC was in the adjoining room ( vanity and restroom) and the so the room tended to be a little warm. Had a small table and chairs, fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We would stay here again.
