Super 8 Salem VA

While traveling we often stay at Super 8 motels because they are usually pet friendly and only charge a minimal fee for the animal. But please stay away from this particular Super 8. The place was dirty, and the entire property smelled of cigarette smoke. The carpets were a mess and smelled of mold. The electrical outlets in the room were falling out of the wall, which was a safety hazard. There was only one light in the entire room and the bathroom was also a mess. Thankfully it was only for one night and we put up with it. We would have left, but had a reservation and would have been charged anyway.

I stayed with my mom and kids here for one night. Some of the reviews weren't so good so we asked to look at a room before we checked in. The room was very clean and nice. The front desk clerk was nice but you had to call on a phone to get someone to the counter (which I thought was odd). My only problem was I had called and gotten a rate the night before and we were charged WAY more that what was quoted. The clerk did knock the price down some but her explanation was that the rate is constantly changing..they never know until they punch it into the computer (which I also think is odd).The continental breakfast wasn't anything fancy but we had other plans. I would stay here again but definitely book your room online so you get a good price.

Hotel owner must be trying too hard to save money. No AC in hallways,room was hot,took too long to cool down. I wouldn't wrap a dog in the blanket that was on the bed!

We booked rooms online for the Super 8 in Salem.

When we arrived the clerk did not want to honor the confirmed reservation price from Super 8's website. He attempted to upsell us.

Eventually after about 45 minutes of complaining and screaming with the staff they gave us two rooms on the second floor. Within the first 10 minutes in the room my wife noticed roaches. We stayed the night, but would never return.

I stay in hotels about 30-50 nights per year on business and this is by far the WORST hotel I've ever stayed in. Save your money and stay somewhere else.

A good budget hotel, off 81. Staff were friendly, room was clean. Locate close to a ot of restaurants and stores. Fine for an overnight stop off. The fastest WIFI I have seen at a super 8!

Got to room, it was hot; tried to turn on air conditioning - entire AC cover fell off. With AC on, went to the bathroom - on tiny florescent bulb - but enough to see hair hanging from the shower head. Sat down to rest - see trash under bed and stained sheets. Oh well I got it for $62.
