My husband and I have stayed at the Salem, VA La Quinta several times. We're currently staying overnight. We travel from Delaware to TN several times a year and have stayed here multiple times. It has very convenient access to I-81 both North and South and has a gas station literally right next to the parking lot which is also very convenient. The rooms are not huge, but are definitely big enough. The beds are very comfy with nice sheets, etc. This is a pet friendly hotel which is also nice for our purposes. The room does smell a very small amount of musty upon entering, but that is quickly cleared by turning the air up a bit. We went out and came back in after dinner and didn't notice it at all. The clientele is also fine. There aren't many restaurants right on top of the hotel (other than a Burger King which is right in the parking lot), but there are several great places within 2 - 4 miles. There is also a bar-tavern very close which we've been to and has good bar food. The breakfast in the morning is great with both hot and cold foods and a very nice lady who stocks it all. All of the staff here is wonderful!
Thanks so much La Quinta, Salem. We'll be back!
