The room is very nice but it doesn't have a refrigerator in every room, it would be very nice for the traveler who would be staying more than one day. The only drawback other than no refrigerator is that I paid for the faster of the wireless network but can't get on. I've called the help desk and the only... More

While I was glad that we got a room with a fridge, it had an old cigarette smoke mixed with musty smell. We were next to the ice machine on the main floor right behind the pool. It seemed like everyone needed ice at 2am. No hotel shampoo, no hair dryer, thin sheets, stained linens - we stayed as we... More

I have stayed in Motel 6's before, and know their reputation. Still, in spite of that I have always found the others I have stayed in to be clean, tity, up to date, and a great deal for the money you spend. This one in Salem though is by far the worse example of any sort of Inn or Motel... More

Just your typical Motel 6. Thin towels and sheets. But what disturbed me most was waking up to find no mattress protector. That's just nasty! And I guess because the rates are so cheap it must be the party place too but that didn't bother us really as it was during the week and maybe not as bad as it... More

Wow! You'd expect that at a motel, a manager would have the best customer service. Unfortunately at this location friendliness, hospitality, and cleanliness suffer greatly. I'm not sure if it's the rain that has these people grouchy but boy! do you feel unwanted when you have questions about your stay. Also, these rooms are barely cleaned! Their just "picked up"...

I am not a morning person, but here I am at the computer at 6:00 am, clean, makeup on, hair done, waiting for my husband who could sleep through anything to wake up. I should have known this was going to be one of *those* experiences when there was 4 police cruisers in the parking lot when we pulled up.... More

This hotel is pet friendly and does not charge for critters. It is clean but rate is per person and internet is $3.00 extra. If you want internet be sure to ask to add it to your bill when you register. The staff especially Chris was very nice and helpful. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy but I walked the... More

I would rather sleep in my car on the side of the freeway than stop and stay in this dive! Where do I start... The shower had someone elses body hair in it, probably because the shower would not drain and it backed up everytime we got in it. The sink counter top had dried soap, etc... stuck on it... More
