Basically it is well located motel with a bad cost/benefit ratio. We chose this motel on the basis of its location. We thought it was close to the main port since we had to take a ferry to sicily. Afterwards we found out that it was at a 2km distance!
However, in order to make up your mind, you should consider the following items:
-Location: in the heart of Salerno, near the cathedral and nice restaurants (although that could also be taken as a disadvantage if you are assigned one of the rooms by the main street, it can be really noisy during the night!). 20 minutes walk from the train station.
Check-in: quite chaotic, the front desk is basically held on the counter of a bar.
Facilities: rooms quite spacious, air conditioning, big beds, no internet access, poor breakfast (served at the bar), parking?, showers are in VERY a bad state (it seems to be a general rule in the south of Italy).

This is not a full service hotel, so don't expect luxury accomodations, but the rooms are clean and functional, and the manager is very helpful. The rooms are kept on a floor in a building above a restaurant. They also have a bar next to the restaurant where they serve coffee, liquor, pastries and gelato. You can always find someone to assist you there if necessary, and they make a really good cappuccino in the morning.
For 50 euros per night, it's a bargain because of the location. It is literally 2 blocks from the commercial port where ferries leave for Amalfi, Positano, Capri, and Ischia. Also, the bus stop is just up the road on the same block where you can catch the bus to the Amalfi Coast and visit any town you'd like from there.
If you are interested in genealogy for the province of Salerno the archives are about a 5 minute walk from this location. The strip is noisy at night, but offers an endless assortment of restaurants, gelaterias, and bars (coffee and otherwise).
If you're not looking to spend much time in your hotel during your visit, this place is a really good affordable base for excursions and exploring exceptional Italian culinary life.
