2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

First of all the heat in the room only extended as far as your arm, second really completely renovated rooms with antiquated tv and scrappy doors? Next was FREE BREAKFAST ON A Sunday UNTIL WOW 9 a.m. Definitely not worth $50.00, go to the Quality Hotel, easier to find and looked a lot better!

Stayed here on a long drive from NJ to TN. I desperately needed sleep. Went to my room, and found there was a large barking dog next door. Went downstairs to ask for a new room, went to new room, and then owner came up and told me I needed to move to a third room because this one was out of service. Passed out for an hour before I was awaken by another barking dog. At this point, I realized just how filthy the room was. Paint was peeling off walls, carpet was held together with duct tape, and Mc.donalds food wrapper were peeking out from underneath bed. I went to the desk to complain, and decided to check out, a mere two hours after I checked into my first of three rooms. I was handed a receipt for 46 dollars, and was told nothing could be done about the charge. My credit card ended up being charged for $53 dollars, and I tried to contact the manager for a week. I finally contacted Howard Johnson corporate, and after a month the manager Naveed called me back. He claimed he went and personally checked the room the next day and found "nothing wrong". He offered me 15% off my next stay, but when will I be in Salem again? If i do, I surely won't be staying here!

Room Tip: Want a tip? Don't stay here!

Arrived at Howard Johnsons in Salem Virginia in the afternoon.
Upon check in noticed the TV was Not hooked up for service.
No working telephone. When asking for a wake up call the clerk asked for my cell phone so I can be called. Only two of the four lights in the room were operational.
But the worst is Thr fact that the window heating system can
not provide heat above 60F.
No extra blankets in the room.
Hotel has potential to accommodate overnight guests.
However in it's present state of repair it is Not in position to do so.
Hotels. com and other similar organizations should Not direct guests to this facility until the property is brought up too basic standards .
