The absolute WORST hotel EVER!!! Spend the extra money and stay at the Cobblestone!!!! The employees are EXTREMELY rude!!!! The room itself was small and lots of problems. And I was charged 134 dollars for 29 hours. VERY unprofessional!!! If I could give a negative rating I would!!!

The two young people that run the place, are very very rude! The company I work for was paying them with a check every two weeks. My employer was sending an even amount on the check. The Salem motel was trying to keep the extra money. Every week, for 10 weeks, they tried to charge me for the balance they... More

This place wasn't THAT bad for the price honestly, but as a college student just coming up for the Derby I'd take a cheap room any day. For one, the people working the front desk arent the nicest of people. We drove 11 hours hoping we could check in early, they told us we had to wait till 2 because... More

Hey you get what you paid for!!! But be warned, stinky, cold, heater too noisy and the carpet is dirty ...and people are smoking outside your window and my room is close to the dumpster. Those drapes are dark color, pretty dirty and the towels are small and rough.

Arriving at this hotel we had an open mind, this surely changed within the next hour of our stay. We checked in at roughly 10 PM, this process took a drooling 15 minutes at least. The two staff members had a hard time finding my reservation that was booked 3 days before through Hotels.com. We finally received our key, drove... More

Stayed there last night...will never go again and writing this review as a warning. Got there last night at 6pm, had to wait 5 minutes for someone to come to front desk (no problem there). The young woman acted like we were imposing on her (again no problem, its a family business). $60 for the room, around the back, #37.... More

Not many choices in Salem Indiana... I needed an affordable week stay in this town for work, but didn't want a run down slum hotel. As I was looking I stopped at the Salem Motel. Asked at the office if they had a weekly rate; they did. Hearing the price I was pleasantly surprised, but then leary of what the... More

Actual adjustable showerhead, great water pressure, BLANKETS(I know one reviewer didn't have any on their bed), stocked bathroom, tv worked fine and so did the fridge and microwave. The staff was very friendly to us, despite a mixup from the website not informing them of my room change. Maybe ours was better because it was a 2 room? I don't... More

Terrible place to stay. No clock, Every light that was supposed to have two bulbs, they had taken one of them out. No Kleenex. No Shampoo. Air conditioner / heater, was so noisey that you had to turn TV all the way up to hear it over the noisey unit. We ask the attendant about it and was told, "... More

I had business in the area and stayed for a weekend. The Salem Motel is an old style motel that appears to have been updated. My room was very clean and had a micro/fridge. The shower/bathroom was very clean and had good pressure. I was unable to get the WI-FI to work but it's not that big of a deal.... More
