“Good value in Salem”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

I stayed here for business when I was in Salem, and it was a good value only about $50. The hotel was a bit older, but the room was clean and its very close to food. I was able to walk to the Carls Jr or Popeyes which were only about 2 blocks away. The tv had a good amount of channels, as it had a Direct TV Cable box. The shower was a bit older, but it did the job. The breakfast area was small and didn't have that many choices, but it had some OJ and some coffee which worked out good. Overall a pretty good place, I would stay here again.

I stayed here in early August. After a whole day's driving, I was tired and decided to stop in Salem to stay for one night. The price of hotels in Salem/Albany area seems more expensive than I expected, so I used the coupon from a hotel coupon book, which you can usually find in MacDonald's or Danny's.

Howard Johnson is just like a a little better version of "Motel 6" or "Super 8". You get what you pay, so don't expect much. At least, it's safe to stay here for one night.

We stayed here in mid October. We have stayed at this inn many times over the past four years as our daughter was attending college in Salem. The rooms are always clean. The hotel staff is friendly. The breakfast buffet has a waffle machine, bananas, coffee, juice, milk, cold cereal, instant oatmeal, bagels and a toaster. It is adequate and always stocked. The inn is close to convenience stores, fast food places and not very far from the freeway.

Our room was very large but the decor was extremely dated, as were the beds. The walls were thin, and it was hard to get a decent night's sleep, since we could hear everything. The room was clean. Breakfast was nothing special but decent enough. If you have electronics that need charging, good luck finding enough outlets.

Room cleanliness is very important to me. I am usually skeptical about places with very low rates, but this inn was much cleaner than many expensive places I have stayed. No ill odors. Exterior landscaping also is tidy and attractive, many flowers nicely tended with automatic waterers. Continental breakfast with waffle maker, no protein, but overall adequate for the cost of the stay. Free WiFi worked flawlessly. Parking areas well-lit and monitored by security cameras; no drive-through traffic. Convenient location. Quiet room. Felt safe. In-room fridge & coffee maker. Did not use the fitness room or swimming pool, but the pool area was attractive and appeared to be very well maintained. This is the 3rd time I have stayed here and I would do it again.

Room Tip: Online I requested ground floor room, which they honored.

we stayed here 2 nights on our way home form our holidays. it is alright if you are not expecting much. it was inexpensive, the beds were comfy, the kids liked the pool but the breakfast was pretty basic and the fitness center was well sad. we would probablly stay here again as a stop over hotel just because of its location and the price.

This place was a great overnight stop for us - near I-5 highway, the hotel and rooms were clean, the rooms big and beds pretty comfy, and for $51 including tax it was really good value. Breakfast was good (the standard bagels, waffles etc) and they even had a pool (though we didn't have time to use it). They are located next to a strip mall with lots of food places which was convenient too. All in all - a short stay but would go back if in the area.
