“A winning attitude and team”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We stay at this hotel quite a bit as our corporate offices are in Salem. Not only are they pet-friendly - sign up for the Perks program so Fido stays free – but they are smiling and helpful. The rooms vary with some being truly small, to others being large and featuring weird green chairs (love those). I only recall one cleanliness issue (former occupants clothing), which they rectified right away.

Love Brian and James in the bar. Both mix great drinks and tell great stories. James knows so much about almost any topic, that it's worth it just to listen to him.

It's a very friendly, homey experience. The beds are comfy, although the toilets are loud.

Room Tip: If size matters, ask for a more spacious room.

We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds on an upper floor, and it was very spacious and clean. I loved that they had an armchair and a small bench to sit on in addition to the desk chair. The location was great - easy to find, and easy to get back to after doing stuff in the city. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and always said hello when they saw us in the halls.

We visited family in Salem, so we called ahead to Red Lion. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The cart do move belongings to the room is a real plus. As always at Red Lion, the staff are all friendly and cheerful.

Room Tip: The rooms are all on the second floor and above.

We stay here every time we visit Salem. Rooms are big, beds are comfortable and the location is easy to get in and out. On site food is good, great place to eat across the street and very reasonable for the accommodations they offer. Thanks Red Lion and we will be back!

This hotel really impressed me with the quality of service and friendliness of the staff. We had a rough start trying to get set up through Travelocity (NEVER AGAIN), but when we called the hotel directly, they really stepped up to take care of us and make sure we were happy. I was so satisfied that I felt very taken care of and valued. I did wish there might have been a little sectioned off area to take the dogs, but we found an easy area to bring them down to for business. We were traveling with 2 large dogs and everyone was friendly and helpful.

The room was comfortable and clean. I really did not like the pillows and will definitely make sure to pack my own if I stay here again... they were really small and uncomfortable. There was no hotel guide in the room, which I would have liked to have. We had a nice little balcony on our room. We ended up checking in late and had been looking forward to swimming all day - the staff was wonderful and allowed us an extra 45 minutes past the pool closing so we could get settled and get a swim in. That was very nice of them - although I have to say, the pool was way too cold and really needed a little heat in it. We only stayed in 10 minutes and couldn't handle the cold anymore.

We had breakfast in the restaurant in the morning, and had received coupons for it. The food was pretty good. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and will definitely plan to stay here again - so pet friendly with easy access to the freeway - we will be back the next time we are in Oregon.
