Non smoking room not. It reeks of smoke. Maybe they made it non smoking yesterday. Cigarette burns all over. Hair on floor. Really low budget. Seedy crowd. They must have a lot of problem customers due to a notice posted in the office.

I stayed there a couple of months ago in Salem because it was better than camping in freezing rain and we were headed to warmer weather. The experience in WA redeemed this one somewhat, but as one who religiously checks for reviews on places I want to stay or see, I regrettably must report on the conditions found here that... More

I booked this motel for 2 nights for my grandson so he could take a class for his job. He said the first night was not too bad but when he went back to his room the next afternoon things changed. When he went into the room he found that it had been cleaned, the bed made, with fresh towels... More

This looks like a decent property. The room was quite nice and the pool area looked really great. Renovations had been done which looked really good however, it wouldn't hurt to replace the bed cover as it had a burn hole in it. There were some "low life's" around however, when paying low prices, you can't expect the same clientele... More

The people that are there all the time must live there. They are fighting in the Parking lot and doing drug deals. Running up and down the upstairs balcony so much, that plaster started falling on us down below. This goes on all night. The key card gas to be reprogrammed every few hours. The garbage around the parking lot... More

Stayed here to be relatively close to the big mall. For that it was little too far, but the motel itself was decent and clean. Can't find any major fault with it, worth the price we paid. Many eateries nearby.

The Good: Cheap, Right off I5, has beds. They have recently updated the rooms - laminte etc. The Bad: Locking system was compromised on front door, loud 'questionable' types about - but to be expected in a very cheap motel, very unclean - there was ashes on our toilet and in bowl toothpaste stains all over the bathroom area, nothing...

My stay was shortened by one day with the hotel but I was pretty impressed. Looked like new bed, new TV, new sink and instead of carpet they had brand NEW wood flooring :). The room was the perfect size for just me. If your traveling by yourself and don't want two queen beds in your room you can ask... More

My room was clean and the bed comfortable. The area was quiet. All I wanted was the basics, a place to sleep and to watch some tv and that is what I got. No complaints. All motels have skimpy towels, if you don't like them, then bring your own.
