“Nice cozy hotel”

We stayed in cabin 9 for one night as we was just passing through, but overall it was a very nice little cozy place to stay. I love old rustic cabins fit in just right. The owner talked to us over the phone and gave us great directions then left the cabin unlocked and turned on the heat because we were arriving late. Although the price when checking out was higher then she quoted me over the phone a month before I didn’t make a big deal because we had such a pleasnant experience. If you travel to salida I would definetly stay here as oppossed to any other chain hotel.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple
