We were on our way to FL and needed a place to stop and sleep. We tried several hotels over the previous 3 towns and none had availability. This was the first hotel with availability. The front desk lady was very nice- it was about 2:30am and she gave us a room for $65. We got to the room with... More

Stayed here for work, not by choice. Wear shoes in the room, carpets are stained. Refrigerators and microwaves in some rooms, not in the one I was in. Pool is dirty. New tile around sink and bathroom, great water pressure and lady at front desk is extremely helpful and nice. Only 10 channels on TV.

We were on our way to Arkansas from Michigan and we called the hotel and they had a room for 4 adults and 2 dogs. The room was clean and a great price for the area. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a clean place to lay your head for the night. The attached dennys and bar... More

Our family just needed a place to spend the night, and GuestHouse Inn was perfect. Floors, bathroom and linens were clean; beds were comfortable; the television works. The area feels safe & it's convenient to have the Denny's right next door. It was snowing, and we could walk from our room to the restaurant under awnings, keeping our baby dry.... More

I was skeptical of this motel after reading the two reviews that mention bedbugs, but decided to stop by anyway as the price was much lower than the two major chain motels nearby. We asked if we could see the room before staying there. We checked it out and it was VERY clean, but not modern or stylish at all.... More

I was a little hesitant about booking a room at this motel because of the "bed bug" review but decided not to let one bad review sway me. The room was not only affordable but also very clean. If you are looking for a motel with the latest decor, you might want to skip this motel. As the other reviewer... More

The room furnishings are a bit out dated.. however the bathroom has new tile.. overall the room was very clean and quiet. Plus the pool looked nice and inviting.. cute turtle sprinkler in kids section.

While this place is far from new, my room was clean and nicely furnished. Best rate in Salem--good wi-fi, free HBO. No free breakfast, but Denny's is attached, and very reasonable. I did not see or experience the problems cited by the one and two year old negative reviews.
