This hotel is rated on AAA as a two star hotel, and as a two-star hotel I happily give it a Very Good rating. The staff were extremely friendly, courteous, professional, and helpful. We rode in on a rainy Thursday, on our motorcycle, and were immediately given towels to dry our bike off. We were even told we could keep...

The room was clean but needs better air conditioning. Way too hot. We could not get the air conditioner to stay on, no matter what we did with the controls. The room could use triple pane windows to cut down on the noise from the street. The room could use an update to bring it up to date. There was...

Very clean, well-managed property in a super location for State offices and the Convention Center.. Appreciated the small but private Fitness Center. Breakfast area was clean and well-stocked throughout the morning. The only negative was that the main signage has been obscured by a tree, and it's very hard to find the property at night. There are small street level...

Encouraged by reasonably-high median ratings on TripAdvisor, we booked two nights' accommodation. There were pluses and minuses... . First, access off-the-road can be quite problematic, if you're not familiar with Salem... or competent with U-turns in foreign cities. Sheila, our Aussie GPS, panicked. I'd like to say _we_ didn't, but... but... we overshot... until we figured it out. Exiting is...

We decided to drive a bit longer to get closer to Portland, so we were searching for a room last minute as we drove, aren't cell phones and iPads great. I have never stayed at an HJ and we knew it was not going to be a Hyatt Regency. The price was right and the room was clean and comfortable,...

This was a very nice location and place to stay.... Did not hear the traffic or the Freeway, The other people that stay the same time I did were quit and I did not experience any loud noise or unpleasant people.
