Reviewed yesterday NEW

I've stayed at the Monarch Suites 4 times and would not think of staying anywhere else in Salida. Michael and his crew are friendly and helpful and the rooms are comfortable and spacious. Since I've reviewed the Suites before I'll keep this brief. Our room had everything a traveler could ask for, and more. We particularly liked the extra suite...

Pleasant and kind employees. I had to check in later in the evening and was greeted kindly from a gentleman that came out from behind the counter area. Though he may have been engaged in something, I would never know because he was ready to assist any way he could. The room was immaculate. Very clean and functional. The bathroom...

Not a fancy hotel, but an ecconomical and clean place to stay. We enjoyed our time here with the quiet nights and comfortable bed. Breakfast, while not extravant, was very good. There was a microwave, fridge, and nice flat screen TV. The maids go out of their way to make you feel special.

We have a great experience every time we stay! Staff are very personable, but also respect our privacy. That's a great balance. We love the re-design of the rooms. Exceedingly clean, tidy and comfortable. Only wish there was a coffee table for the sofas.

We booked this room based on price and reviews and it turned out to be a great choice. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and provided everything we needed for a great stay. The facility in general was very quiet and not very far from downtown. I did a lot of price comparison...

We chose this inn based on its great Trip Advisor ratings, and we were very, very happy we did! The experience even exceeded our high expectations. The room was squeaky clean, recently remodeled, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. Our room faced the highway, and although the potential for highway noise concerned me when checking in, we had no problem with...

The room was clean and charming. The breakfast is pretty typical for a continental: cereals, muffins, bagels and yogurt are the majority of it. They do offer hard boiled eggs and fresh fruit. The biggest issue I had was the rooms were not very sound proof. Not even for a hotel. Since it is an older structure, the hardwood floors...

We had the opportunity to travel through Salida earlier this week. After a full day of travel and business we were looking for a place to stay. As we passed the Motel, we commented on how cozy the place looked. So we turned around and pulled in. Not having a reservation on a Saturday night we were delighted that there...

We had a very clean room at a very reasonable price. It had been remodeled and we had the most wonderful mattresses with great pillows. I would stay there again. Because this is an older place, the bathroom was small but nicely remodeled. We had a coffee pot and microwave. The pillows made the night.
