Was there on business trip room was warm so we tried to turn on air. Units are not easy to control so you couldn't get proper temp. Either sweat or freeze very loud caused lack of sleep as well.

The first person we met was Eric (the parking lot manager and PR person extraordinaire) who made us feel very welcome and at ease. We stayed for two nights, were gone two nights and back again for two more nights. Each time we were in the lobby or parking lot Eric was helping with luggage, keeping things tidy and generally...

The experience with the hotel started 6 months prior to our arrival, we booked 3 rooms and we had to pay in advance to reserve the room since the hotel claimed the they are fully booked. When we checked in there was a guest at the lobby that was inquiring about a room and was told that there are rooms... More

We recently spent 3 nights here for a friend's daughter's wedding. Fortunately, the actual wedding took place elsewhere. They made a big deal about a waterfront view, we booked it, waited in the lobby (too long) for that room, and then found we could (only) see a tiny patch of blue water from our guest room...very tiny. It took five... More

The staff were friendly and accommodating, the room was absolutely spotless, the king size bed was extremely comfortable, and to top it all off, they had a makeup mirror exactly like I have at home. I... More

Booked this hotel on a whim...I couldn't have made a better choice. Quality service. Very professional, friendly staff; from the front desk to housekeeping. My junior suite was very spacious, with a large bathroom. Clean and quiet. Food at the Regatta Pub was really good and reasonably priced. Easily walk to all restaurants and attractions in Salem. Highly recommend.
