“A very nice place to stay”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

These things are free:
1. Parking
2. Wifi
3. Breakfast
4. Pool

I stayed for ten days. Due to the uncertain nature of my travel plan, I initially booked only for one week, then I extended two days, then I extended again one more day. Every time they made arrangements so that I can stay in the same room without moving all my luggage around.

The place is clean and quiet. It is very close to the Salem capitol area, only 5 minutes driving, maybe 30 minutes walking.

For the price the hotel was fine. The corners of the bathroom and shower could be cleaner. Front desk check in was very friendly however he needed a shower. Pool is on a VERY busy street, which was the only downside. We didn't have breakfast but it looked pretty messy when we passed by the room.

This was a basic hotel room. There was not room for a small table, which would have been nice. The room was clean, the breakfast included waffles, cold cereal, instant oatmeal, bagels, English muffins, toast and fresh fruit. the location was excellent - within walking distance of Deepwoods, and a little further on Bush Park. Also easy access to the freeway. Would stay there again - the price was right.

We made reservation on the phone and it is not the motel you are talking to. It is a call center and the reservation shows up on the computer at the motel. We were quoted 59 dollars and when we checked in they charged us 69 dollars. at first is seemed like we were stealing the 10 dollars out of the mouths of the managers children.

we called the call center and complained as the manager said to do. The manager said they are $69 no matter what they said it was. the call center also booked us for 2 rooms not one. The call center said the manager has to change the price and they would notify the manager and the general manager.

We told him this and he said they are just kicking the ball around and how much they have to pay for franchise fees and how Howard Johnson screws them. I do not want to hear all of that! I want to be charged for what I was quoted and not more when we arrive.

When we checked out the manager went into his excuses again and said he was doing us a favor by charging us what we were quoted. GEE THANKS.....

All in all it was an OK stay, just a little frustrating. Oh Yes and is was nice to know we were just down the street from the Prison! I do not see issues regarding this but is seemed a little disconcerting at the time.
