“OK choice for a one night stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The price was right for breaking our drive home after a nice vacation. The hotel is a convenient on and off of I-81, and is close to a big choice of restaurants for dinner. Certainly it would not be hard to argue that the view is one of the best in the area. The room needed attention... the bathroom towel rack was off the wall and the bed was missing one of the finials, but the room and bath itself were clean. Although we had only coffee, the complimentary breakfast was quite an impressive spread, and many of the other travelers seemed to be enjoying it. Not a bad experience for what we wanted.

The best view in Salem. So nice, they charge you extra for a room facing it. Room passed my sniff test, and the rooms look recently remodeled and in good condition. The micro-fridge actually had a freezer section, but it made noise while running. There were no plastic cups to drink or gargle with. Hot breakfast was scary looking and cold with a micro there to warm it up. Price with coupon from rest area book was very good, and the view in the morning was impressive. Go for the top floor for the best view.

We arrived at 1:30 pm half an hour before check in time. The room was not ready but the attendant let us check in and gave us our key cards and told us to come back at 2 pm and the room would be ready. We checked at 2 and the room was still not ready so we checked with the clerk who then called housekeeping to ask why. We were asked to either wait until the room was ready or opt for another room. We opted for another room.

I was a bit worried about staying here but once we got to our room I was fine. The room did smell funny. The blanket, not bed covering, smelled musty.
There was a mini fridge with a decent sized mini-freezer in top which was so helpful for us.
Beds were comfy as were the pillows.
The view is amazing!!
Very nice front desk staff.

Not clean. Smelly. Noisy ac unit. Stained sheets. Bright balcony light shines threw drapes. Very weak breakfast. Not worth the price even at a bargain price. Not a good place to stay. Do not stay here.

Truly...the view here is quite phenominal. It is very scenic, so much so that the gentleman at the front desk wanted to charge me $5 extra for a front room at check-in. When I told him no thanks, he did let me stay in a room on the front side at no extra charge. I guess it was the old up sale, but don't loose a customer over it. My room was for all practical purposes pretty clean, and the bed really slept well. The pillows were much better than you normally see in motel in this category (see my profile). The TV worked ok, and the WIFI worked well, although it took me a couple of tries to get it to go. All in all, with a coupon, the room was a little over $46.00, which was not a bad deal. In fact I would even term it a decent stay for a traveling sales person, and I might consider it again. The thing which was problematic was there wasn't a working ice machine on the property for customers, although they would fill your bucket at the desk if you go ask. My feeling on this is simply this, a motel with this many rooms must really be trying to cut costs to go in the middle of July with no ice. I've always felt that a motel really should have a sign at the desk informing people that there is no ice available for customers. If, like this inn, they are willing to do it at the desk, this should be on the sign also. It's only fair to notify customers that there is one aspect of a typical motel stay which will not be available currently during your stay.
