We visited friends in Salem this weekend and bought our greyhound, Taylor with us. Staff at this hotel were so kind to us and Taylor that they made our stay really pleasant and peaceful from check in to check out. The room was nicely set up with a kitchen area. It was quiet at night for sleeping and the bed...

It's my 3rd time here in 3 years. There's not much nearby the motel, however it is located within a short distance to downtown Salem, i5 and other restaurants and fresh food shops. The staff here is very very friendly, all of them without exception. I like the fact that it is equipped with a small gym (exercise room), a...

I had to show up a day (actually a late-night arrival) early, and the man at the front desk was most helpful in getting me into a room for a hotel that was just about completely booked. Having a free breafast at the adjoining Denny's was quite helpful. Because of some recent struggles in my personal life, I have been...

I was told there was a "dog area" right outside the back door. I went through the back door, and saw a large paved parking lot, with Denny's across the lot. Some distance away was a small median, about 2' x 5', with grass in it. This is a dog area? Breakfast was included in my room rate, at Denny's...

Thank you for your review. You made some great points, and we will work on the improvements that you suggested. We do have a large pet area on the back of our property; I'll make sure the front desk is providing better directions to this area in the future. I hope that you will stay with us again, and give...

We paid a little extra to have a "suite". It was large and well decorated, however it apparently had pets during the previous visit, because we found dog hair and food (dry kibble) in the carpet. Upon checkout, the man at the desk, who was more worried about the civil war football game, didn't seem to care about my issues...

I'm very sorry to hear about your experience, Steve. We know how important a clean room is to our guests, and I feel terrible that we did not meet the expectations we set for ourselves. Customer service is very important too, and I'll share your experience with our front desk staff. I hope you'll consider staying with us again; I...

I am struck by the number of 5-star reviews about this hotel. At best, this is a 3-star hotel. It is a hotel that evokes the 1990s period, with zero-to-few updates and maintenance. Plenty of scuffed, marked, and chipped surfaces. It simply has not been updated at all in the last 20 years. Public areas showed their age the most....

Thank you for your input, Lee. While we did recently complete a large phase of our renovation, there is still work to be done. We will soon be replacing all of the furniture in the room, and doing a full renovation of our bathrooms. We're very excited to be making these improvements, and hope that you will give us another...

My family and I checked in this afternoon for a 2 day stay while we are in Salem for a racing event. I booked the hotel over the phone with a Best Western rewards member as I was redeeming a free night with my rewards points and online booking was not available. Upon arriving to the hotel we tried to...

Great staff, they went out of their way to be helpful and did it with a smile from each of them! Very nice lobby presentation. This was an easy access for our business needs. I would recommend for business and pleasure stays.

Friendly, clean rooms, nice pool and good location. Free breakfast at Denney's had a good selection to choose from. The team lived the fresh baked cookies and hit chocolate machine! Nice place and I would stay again!

At check in, Ashley did a great job; friendly, outgoing, competent professionalism. I also want to give Monica at the front desk a big attagirl for her help in accommodating a safe and secure area for me to park my pickup/motorcycle trailer.
