We just stayed in room #2 at the American Classic Inn (3 beds including 2 bunks) for one night, and were not happy at all with our stay. Some members of the staff are rude, they treat guests poorly, and their overall quality and hosting standards are lacking. There are many hotel/motel options in Salida, and we really regretted picking this one. Shortly after getting access to the room, we realized that one of the beds (top bunk) wasn’t done — they had put folded sheets on top of the bed for us to put on ourselves. Not cool for a $150 room. Some of the bedsheets were also overused and had holes in them — again, not cool. Checkout is at 10am in the morning (versus 11am in most places). They don’t provide any breakfast options (unlike almost everyone else at this price point). After checking out at 10am, we went to grab some pancakes nearby. There was a long wait to be seated, so we took them to go and came back at the American Classic Inn at 10:30am to eat them on the outside tables in the back of the parking lot before getting on the road. Even though there was nobody around, they would not let us eat our breakfast there because it was past 10am. Not only that, but they acted really rude about it. After we politely asked if we could take 15 minutes to finish our breakfast, they escalated the situation right away and told us that we could either book another night or that we were trespassing and that they would call the cops on us if we didn’t leave immediately. Super rude and completely unnecessary. We’ve stayed at dozens of hotels/motels in the region, and have never been treated so poorly. Pretty sad experience all around, definitely won’t be back. Our advice would be to do yourself a favor and stay away from this place. You will likely have a better experience anywhere else. FYI: I posted this review on Google earlier this evening, and the hotel, while acknowledging our stay, responded with flat-out lies to justify their appalling and horrible behavior. They made a pathetic attempt to portray us as bad guests in a completely dishonest way, which speaks volumes about who they are. Buyer beware.…
We really enjoyed our visit to Salida and this motel was great. It's not fancy but an older motel that has been recently updated. Our room had cute furnishings, the bed was great, we slept well. The room was not spacious but we could move around easily. The place was quiet during the night. The check in person was very pleasant. Parking was right at your door. We will definitely stay there again.
Quaint, clean and modern. Checking in at american classic was the best decision we made! Very courteous staff and efficient check in and booking. Great location for a walk into town and perfect for your stay in salida. Cheers friends
CLEAN!!! Flexible furniture. The bath/dressing area is creatively and efficiently laid out. I love the deaconsbench with hooks for my luggage, the little plant, the lightweight chairs, the BAT PHONE, the color scheme. None of it is EXPENSIVE, just well-chosen. Another reviewer mentioned the light in the window, maybe the sound of the heater, there might have been more interesting snacks BUT DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING if it makes the price go up. I wish there were one in Golden, Leadville and BuenaVista, too. I will be back, with friends.
Stay away. These people are troubled. We left our kids in one of the Two rooms we rented with a 14 year old in charge for an hour while we watched TV next door. And the crazy owners called the police on us and told us we had to leave because we had unregistered guests in the room and our dog went into the unauthorized hypoallergenic room. I told the lady twice upon Check-in that three boys would be in the room. The lady offered a refund and then the man said no refund because we broke the rules ( of both rooms? Or just the one?). We will be disputing the charge. It was 8:00 at night when they kicked a peaceful family of 5 out on the street. What a joke and pathetic customer service. The police were very nice and said this was how these people operated these days. I have stayed in Salida for 40 years and this was the poorest experience I’ve ever had. And now my kids are totally freaked out. Thanks a lot.…
