Once this used to be a good hotel, but now the standard has gone down and it definitely needs improvement in terms of service and maintenance. The location is very good, but it lacks in other important things to attract customers.

We had stopped over the night at Hotel Salem castle during our road trip to Allepey from Bangalore. Given the last minute booking, this seemed to be the only feasible option. At 3K per night, though breakfast was included (that we did not get a chance to catch given our plan to hit the road at 6:30 am), it was not a good deal.
The floor of the hotel seemed to not have been cleaned and the bathroom had hair lumps collected from use by previous guests.
The staff was friendly and packed us sandwiches for the road when we informed them that we would have to check out even before the complementary breakfast starts.
One may not find very many options in this town unless you are paying upward of 8-10K per night.

The parking lot is slightly far from the entrance to the hotel, but apart from that, its a value for money place. Efficient staff but the airconditioning takes a while to kick in. and with Salem weather, it can be a drag!

Even so, it's a pretty neat place to stay.

I recently went to stay at this hotel in Salem. It was a pretty decent place for a small city like Salem. The rooms are really well maintained. They even had locker facilities in all rooms. We loved the lawn in the 4th floor. The complimentary breakfast buffet is in par with star hotels in Chennai. The only problem is that you don't get hot water here. The geysers aren't working. Even if you call room service, they keep promising you that they will bring it in 5 minutes, but you will never get it until you check out. Otherwise, you can give 5 stars for this hotel.

Room Tip: We were in 404, 405, 505, 507 & 508. All rooms were really good. You have a open lawn in the 4...

I did not stay at this hotel but did get shown several rooms on the property. It seemed like a tired old building that had not been kept up. The rooms were not attractive and definitely not updated. There were service panels off in each hallway we went down, and in one room. Looked like maintenance was a big problem. I would not stay at this property.

Go there only if you don't find any other alternatives. Not worth the money charged. Rooms are very small, not very clean, but the location of the hotel is good. Its Ok if you just want to stay the night or so, but not worth going for a comfortable stay.
