“Don't expect a shower”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2007

Property was older, but clean. No elevator to second floor. Room was older, but ok. Trouble came trying to get a shower. I had heard some older folks at breakfast complaining about the scalding shower. I figured they were just grumpy.. until I tried to get one. It was impossible to adjust: either it was scalding or freezing. In between lasted a few seconds at a time. Took about a half hour to get a rather uncomfortable shower.

Would give it a miss unless the shower is fixed.

This hotel is convenient to I 81, but that is about the only convenient thing. It is not close to the nicer part of Salem or Roanoke. The room was fine, but the hallways were dirty and reeked of smoke (my room was non-smoking and was OK). The hotel was a bit loud, thanks to a tour bus group that stayed there for the night.

The facilities have seen better days but the rooms were clean. The staff was friendly. The free breakfast was quite nice the first two days we stayed. The second two days there appeared to be a large group that pretty basically wiped out the breakfast. The hotel did seem prepared for that many people. The air handler fan in both rooms was extraordinary loud on fan only which actually drowned out the noise of the large group that was there on our second stay. Overall the experience was positive and Salem was a very nice small town.

  • Liked — The breakfast.
  • Disliked — shabby feel of the facilities.

We stayed here on a roadtrip, after seeing it from the highway. Accomodations are fine, but there was a water main break in the morning so there was no running water (i.e. no toilet or shower.) I thought the management could have done more to either make alternate arrangements or offer to comp the room.

I should have know better than to think a $65 night hotel would be acceptable. Our first room was right next to the back door (which was broken so we did not feel very secure), and spurted disgusting brown water from both the facet and tub. Our second room also came with brown water, but had the added advantage of a bathtub full of dirty water. Needless to say, we did not stay here.

I stayed at the Quality Inn, Salem in April 2007. I was visiting a friend at nearby Roanoke College. This hotel is in an excellent location, right off of I-81. The hotel looked a bit rundown when looking at the porches and balconies. My room was really nice and had a very comfortable king size bed. The only complaint I have is in the bathroom. It is very tight. The door hits against the toilet everytime it is opened. There is not much room to dry hair or to really walk around and get ready in the bathroom. I also had a problem with not getting hot water when I showered in the morning. But, when I showered later in the day, I had ample amounts of hot water. Overall, this was a nice hotel. I didn't spend much time in it, but it was a nice place to sleep. They also have wireless internet, which was a great added bonus to my room. I would stay here again,

  • Liked — Wireless internet, location, only having two floors
  • Disliked — the small bathroom, some trouble at check in and check out

I was in the Roanoke/Salem area for a major volleyball tournament with my daughter. This hotel was very convenient to our different playing sites and just off I81. The room was large and clean. The bathroom door had to be closed in order to use the toilet. There was virtually no hot water when I took a shower. (I was on the 2nd floor.) I had to let the water run and run, to barely get warm. As I was rinsing my hair, the water turned ice cold again. I had to let it run again before it warmed up enough for me to finish. Didn't make it to the continental breakfast. The room heater generated nice warm air and wasn't as noisy as a lot of hotels I've stayed in, for which I was very grateful. TV offered lots of cable channels as choices including HBO. Great price at less than $60 before taxes! Despite the cold water, I'd stay here again.......maybe in warmer weather though! :-)

  • Liked — Price and proximity to I81
  • Disliked — Lack of hot water
