I stayed here once before because it was close to the Expo center. I remembered it smelling funny but recent reviews weren't bad so I stayed again. Unfortunately, the place still had a weird smell, and to top it off, I got to my room to find that the bed wasn't made, trash wasn't empty, and towels were lying around... More

Affordable, clean, friendly, easy access, and nearby eating make this hotel ideal. I've stayed here annually for four years and it's great!

The Howard Johnson Inn Salem more than met our needs, providing a clean spacious room. It was also very free of bed bugs, as checked on a national website and from our inspection -- we do both for every property we visit. It also offers a free, though modest, continental breakfast that also met our morning nutritional need. We only... More

This was not a fancy place, but it did the trick. The shower pressure was good, the breakfast was not fancy, but filling, the beds were good. It was a clean place with no foul smells. The location was good. If you like coffee, and everyone in these parts seems to, you can walk to not one, but three drive... More

I had never stayed at a Howard Johnson before, so thought I would try the one in Salem. Even though I arrived in Salem (Amtrak) hours before the check-in time of 2 p.m., I took a chance to see if the room was available. The manager said to come on over, and they found me a room with a king-size... More

We stayed at the HJ in Salem because we were there for my husband's brother's funeral. It is old, but it was clean and the bed and pillows were great. The continental breakfast was acceptable, and the owner very attentive and friendly.

Room was clean & quiet. Was easy to check-in, & looks secure (rooms are all indoors). Bathroom has mold in shower under mat which was lifting, & bed was extremely hard. T.V. worked well, coffee in room, & fridg. Parking is cramped.
