In the U.S.A Road to Salina had a modest and brief release. Its play-date was usually on the lower half of a double feature. Kevin Thomas in the Los Angeles Times called it " An admirable ambitious film of strictly sophisticated appeal." He described the film as " A fable showing how tragedy can occur when reality intrudes upon the lonely lives of those who live in a world of fantasy". The review in Newsday called Road to Salina " A very strange film... More perversely compelling than it has a right to be". In the Village Voice, Robert Colaciello said: " If your taste runs to 70s actors having 60s sex in a 50s film so that a 40s star can suffer, then Road to Salina is for you".
