My seventy-five year old mother and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Salem Virginia for the night of Tuesday, October 7th, 2008. When making our reservations online, we requested a room on the top floor, away from the elevator and the Interstate, and we received a room on the third floor (of four) right in front of the elevator overlooking the entrance to the hotel.
The very large room included two queen beds, each with four pillows on them, a clock radio, one office-type chair with a table/desk, one comfy chair with an ottoman, one bench-type chair, a large television with fifty-seven channels and a remote, a mini-refrigerator, a microwave, a coffeemaker, and an iron/ironing board. There was also a fake tree in the corner by the window, which we thought was a very nice touch.
The very large bathroom had plenty of room to move around in, and included three sets of towels, a hairdryer, bottles of shampoo and lotion, as well as a bar of facial soap and a bar of bath soap. There was a handle in the shower, which my mother was able to use to get in and out with ease. However, the shower area could have been a bit cleaner, especially around the shelves where the soap and shampoo would be placed.
The wired high speed internet connection worked sporatically for much of the night, making it very frustrating to get anything done. It should be noted that the hotel was completely sold out, so the demand on the network would probably have been high. Also, I was not able to get a wireless connection from the hotel room.
After taxes, the American Automobile Association rate per night for Room 320 came to $115.96 U.S. Funds. Overall, we were very comfortable, and despite having a room opposite the elevator, it was pretty quiet...
