Spent 2 nights in this hotel. We decided only 2 days in advance to visit Salem to catch all the festivals going on in October. This hotel is about 9 miles outside of the historical district - about 15 minute drive. Prices were a somewhat hight due to the time of the year. I was amazed to see that the hotel was listed as a Catagory 3 (would have expected higher, so I used Hilton points for one night that reduced costs.
Joyce, the person at the front desk was extremely helpful. She was efficient, friendly and had to juggle between our check-in and a phone call and did it without making me wait or feel rushed. Can't say too much about her. She was wonderful.
The indoor pool was nice -- really warm just the way I like it. No hot tub, but I spent almost an hour in the pool which was very unexpected. I only wished they kept it open later than 9pm -- that seemed very early to close it down.
Room was spotless, and seemed recently renovated or just very well maintained. Everything worked, had a flat screen TV, channel directory was attached to a mini table on the bed, free wireless internet, plenty of outlets. Hotel was laid out in a way the rooms were not too far from the elevator. Seemed to be ample parking right in front of the hotel, and they had rolling carts to help with luggage.
Breakfast included eggs (those premade kind which are not my favorite, but most places don't even have this), sausage, waffles, bagles, assorted buns, cereals, and lots more. Plenty of tables so no waiting which was nice - and we were there at a busy time.
The drive to Salem was a bit further than expected, but not bad. All hotels in Salem were booked and cost lots more. Plenty of family resturants nearby. In all, a great place to stay.
