It's about what you'd expect for a drive-up motel near the highway - maybe a little nicer in all. The breakfast was great, and the pool area was nice. No complaints about the room - it was nice and clean, and we got a rollaway bed for $8/night. The breakfast was great.
The catch: I had a question about my bill prior to check out - as expedia apparently got the tax figures wrong and I seemed to have been overcharged. When I approached the desk on the morning of my check-out to ask about the bill, the woman there appeared ready for an argument....when all I wanted was an explanation. I eventually got the explanation, but was left with a bitter taste in my mouth. I'm pretty sure that she thought I was looking for a handout. Well, I wasn't - and its very unlikely that I will return to this hotel during my next visit to Salem.
For what it's worth, the "exercise room" was pitiful - 3 pieces of equipment, and one didn't even work. The other two were both way over 20 years old. I got my cardio on the concrete by the pool instead.
Breakfast was awesome though....gotta give em credit for that.
Next time I'll pay $20/night more and avoid the headache, get a workout, and still get a good bowl of granola. less
