“Flegmatic staff, poor cleaning”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

The in itself okay building and rooms are let down by lazy cleaning and indifferent staff. Nobody is outright rude, but would it kill them to smile and pay attention to you? Our first room's bathroom had not been cleaned at all. The room we changed to was okay, but even then the bathroom cleanliness was not up to standards we've seen in other motels on this trip. The bed had stains and very worn sheets. Breakfast was the worst I've had - I'm used to just toast and butter, but all the drinks were watered down (coffee, juices) to a real disappointment.

On the plus side I did get a good night's sleep and it's quiet. It's the dirt and overall subdued mood bringing everything down.

Fairly small rooms with shower only in bathroom. Slightly worn. Quiet air conditioner. No road noise. Thin walls but necessities covered. Hall smelled like smoke but room smelled clean. Breakfast was basic. For $50 it was a good value and good for the one night of our stay.

It is hard to beat the value for what you get here. Stayed here June 2012 during a vacation in Oregon. Hotel was very clean, nice rooms. Looks like it was formerly a Sleep Inn (by the room design & sliding bathroom door) and I'm pretty sure about this because one of their parking signs out front referred to guests of Sleep Inn. They have an indoor pool which my daughter loved. For the price, it can't be beat. I would definitely stay here again if we are ever in Salem, OR again.

The room I was in (229) was not vacuumed before my stay, because I found coffee stirrers on the carpet. This made me wonder if my bedding was clean, or of the shower, bathroom or sink had been sanitized! And their Continental Breakfast was something my grandchildren would prepare - cold cereal, toast and juice! So, we had to go get a nourishing and fulfilling breakfast at a restaurant. It would be worth paying the extra $30/night at a better motel and save the cost on breakfast, then to stay at this place!

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you can help it; the staff are rude and uncooperative.

Chose this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Can't disagree with most of the reviews. For me, room and bathroom cleanliness are on the top of my list, thus the overall rating of "4". On the plus side, the rate was probably the best along Interstate 5 in Oregon, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom area and sink areas were clean, and the carpet was clean. The shower stall door needed to have the lime buildup removed and the mold on the door cleaned. The outside of the hotel needs to be cleaned and/or painted. The "welcome mat" at the front door was in shreds and should be replaced. Still the price was right and the place comfortable. My concern would be that unless hotel management takes care of these maintenance issues now, the property will decline. All that being said, I would stay there again.

Have stayed here in the past and it's a fair price for decent lodging. It's sits by it's self near the freeway but very little noise from the outside. Room was clean and the king bed was comfortable. The contential breakfeast was a little on the slim side in comparison to others. Overall I will stay there again.

Most hotels that you stay at for $35 are a bit shady, but this one isn't. For those you who are familiar with Sleep Inn's, this property used to be one, and it still looks like it inside as well. The room was clean, and had the usual Sleep Inn look. The TV was a bit small, and didn't have that many channels (It had ESPN U but not ESPN), but other then that it was good. It had the usual shower and sliding doors, but that was fine. It is right off the interstate, and was close to food and about 15 minutes away from the outlet mall up I5. Overall a clean comfortable place for $35.
