Very nice, large and clean room. The service in the restaurant/bar was great! And, the price of the hotel was very good! My booking included a $5 discount off of my dinner tab and a free breakfast that was actually very good. The food here has always been great!

The hotel was very comfortable and staff were accommodating. Pleasant and helpful staff members. Very nice to have a shuttle to the University. My room faced the busy street and unfortunately the noisy traffic disturbed my sleep the entire night.

RL used to be my favorite hotel chain, but about 4 years ago they went thru a bunch of changes and have dropped on my list. The once incredible service and rewards club has been replaced with average quality service & accomidations and the new Hello Rewards program is the worst rewards program ever. The rewards program actually works the...

I've had good luck with Red Lion in the past as being a good, predictable value, including at this particular hotel. However this time the stars did not align. Shower was not more than tepid, room was loud from both inside and outside, TV remote didn't work, front desk / manager was a bit surly. Given past positive experiences I'll...

Nice folks at the desk and very comfortable rooms. Bed was nice and service was alright. The motel is centrally located and easy to exit. Wish there was more parking spaces. The restaurant and bar has a welcoming climate.

There was cold water in shower, had to ask for breakfast vouchers even when included in the room rate causing confusion in the restaurant. I think there are better deals in Salem so I'd suggest you keep looking. Cold showers are not good.

I spent one night in this place. It was one night too many. The bed had 3 pillows the size of a throw pillow. They said they were placing a $25 hold on my credit card for incidentals. Today my card was changed $250 for "smoking in the room". When questioned, the manager said they investigated and found proof, but...

This property is visibly getting "long in the tooth". I've stayed there many times because of it's access to Interstate and proximity to meetings. The rooms is heated/cooled by a separate "below the window" unit that was extremely noisy. And, the room overlooked the heating/cooling units for the adjacent restaurant (see photo)--made for a very noisy and sleepless stay. All...
