I booked this room because it rated highest on the Trip Advisor website. Oops! I guess even TripAdvisor isn't perfect.
I learned something important from this trip: Friends don't let friends stay in Salem. That said, maybe it is different in downtown, but in the area where this hotel (as well as the Phoenix Inn and others) was located in was sketchy at best. You certainly wouldn't feel inclined to go out and take a stroll in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
As for the hotel itself - the furnishings in the lobby were worn and dated. Hotel staff weren't rude, but weren't exceptionallly friendly either. When we got to our room I was shocked! It was like the room had been decorated by someone on an acid trip. There were patterns everywhere and very little sense that the patterns were supposed to be color-coordinated in any way. The beds were not comfortable either.
My daughter and I went to work-out in the work-out room and soon gave up. It was located in a glassed in area next to the pool area and was hot, cramped and uncomfortable.
We didn't check out the continental breakfast, so maybe that's great. Wish I had better things to say about this hotel as usually Shilo's are not this disappointing.
