“Solid place for the price”
Reviewed September 21, 2008

My wife and I stayed one evening at this howard johnson, as we just needed a place to lay our heads for the evening. For the price -- ~$65 (I think), it was a wonderful place. I'm used to getting killed by the chain hotels in big cities where you pay a lot but get very little. This Hojo was a pleasant surprise, as we experienced a very clean, comfortable and quiet room offering nothing really to complain about. Wireless internet was free and it even included a free breakfast that was pretty good, albeit very basic. All in all, we were happy with our stay and will stop here again if we return to the area.

Front office, motel interior and the room was nice and clean.
Room linen and bathroom towels clean. Would stay there again. Good place to stay if you are visiting for business as nothing much to do in the block around the motel. Breakfast was enough and not skimpy like other places with plenty of toast, muffins, bagels, juice, coffee, cereal etc. Oddly, there was no mirror in the room, if you are two persons and one is using the bathroom, you have to wait to get ready as the only mirror is on the bathroom sink.

  • Liked — Neat and clean
  • Disliked — No mirror or fridge in the room

My husband I stayed there for a week and we were very happy
with our accommodations!

If you're looking for a resort--this is not it! But, if you're looking for a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay--this is a great value.

The complimentary, continental breakfast was great. The breakfast room was clean and organized and the breakfast choices were good!

The people at the desk could not have been more accommodating and pleasant!

Thank you for a great stay! :)

During our last trip to Salem we stayed at a Travelodge--this Howard Johnson was much nicer, and only about $10 more per night. For about $65/night for 3 people/2 beds, we got a good-sized, clean room and a decent continental breakfast. The staff were all very nice and were helpful in giving us driving directions. No complaints about the room. I see in another review someone complains about thin walls, but we never noticed this, and I saw a couple with a small child leave the room next door in the morning. Didn't really notice any noise aside from the sounds of plumbing and closing doors. The breakfast was decent for us--cereals, oatmeal, muffins, toaster waffles, fruit, juice, coffee--we all enjoyed it. It was also in a good location near the fairgrounds, which is where we needed to be. Overall, very pleased and would stay there again.

Okay stay. It was clean, easy to get to, but the walls were terribly thin. We were woken up two times...once by a neighbor on one side talking on a cell, and the second by the neighbor on the other side getting it on. Not pleasant. So if you don't mind noise and need a cheap, clean room for the night with a minimal breakfast in the morning this HoJo is for you.
