We found this hotel clean, quiet, and easy to find a place to park. Plenty of towels and hangers. Beds were not too soft or too hard and we found them very comfortable. Lots of pillows too! 4 for each bed of various firmness.
The front desk staff was cheerful, friendly, and helpful even to printing out maps and airline boarding passes (although they do have a new computer that can be used).
The breakfast area was bright, cheery, and clean. They had a nice selection of both hot and cold items, good coffee, and a pancake making machine. If the pancakes were first out of a new bag, they were large, fluffy, and delicious. Staff had no issue with changing the bag to when it was getting low and producing small and not as good pancakes. The room had a microwave and a dorm size refrigerator.
I researched a lot of hotels in the Salem area, but kept coming back to this one for us to stay at. I'm very glad I did. I would stay here again should I be in the Salem area over night. It is also close to I-5 but we didn't notice any noise.
The one thing I would say is if you do not have a dog, ask for a room away from the grass area for dogs to do their business. I say this as I could smell urine going to/from our room - which the rain washed away but when it isn't raining, it might bother some travelers. We didn't spend much time going to/from our room and we didn't need to have the door open so we weren't particularly bothered by it.
There was a nice t.v. in the room but the picture didn't fill the screen. It didn't bother us that it was like that as we came to see family, not spend a lot of time in the room
Also the heater in the room will not be heard when you turn the heat up. The heat comes from registers on the floor and all one has to do is put their hand by it and one will feel heat (thanks to my traveling companion for showing me this).
This hotel is also being remodeled but we didn't find the construction crew noisy. Rather we found them very polite and accommodating. less
