First off Sherry and Christy made our stay most enjoyable. Went completely out of their way to make sure we were at home. When we finally used our free 5 dollar off tickets Brian the bartender was amazing. Good conversation and the drinks are decent too what more can you ask for.

I had a great experience while stay at the Red Lion in Salem. The staff was wonderful and helpful. They made sure you were happy and taken care of. The restaurant has delicious food and breakfast was better than any other place I've stayed.

Staff was nice, food was okay, prices were great. The property itself could use a little something and the patrons were less than friendly.Sitting in the hallway blocking my passing and with their feet up on the barstools. There seems a distinct lack of manners in Salem or this hotel. A hot tub would be superb also!

I can honestly say that I was very pleased with our stay there. We had our five month old baby and the staff were very friendly and set up a little crib for our baby. The room was very clean and the breakfast was decent. I do not think that the cleaning staff did a good job on cleaning our...

Booked a weekend (friday and saturday) to be in town with Oregon Army National Guard. Checked into room and within 30 minutes were surrounded on 3 sides (both sides and across the hall) who were starting a party (@ 10:30 p.m.).-yelling, laughing, smoking weed. Front desk staff was very good about switching us to another room-originally tried to move us...

Dear Guest, Please accept our sincere apologies - we have a strict policy for no smoking through out the building and will ask guest to vacate once they violate the policy. Sadly, it does get to that point and by then it will have already upset the rest of our guest. Please rest assure we take the comfort of all...

Only ever saw the night desk manager while we were in but he was over the top helpful. Gave us a good rundown of hotel services and made sure to point out the ones we might be most interested in. Hotel was clean and inviting. We make many trips to Oregon and will stay here again.

Stayed here one night passing through town, wish we could have stayed longer! The hotel was very clean, nicely decorated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We signed up for their rewards program which gave us free breakfast and was very good! Nice coffee selection in the lobby (tip: get real cream from the restaurant) The bed was really...

The room was very roomy and comfortable and had all the necessary amenities like fridge, microwave, hair dryer, wet bar. The TV was a bit small for the size of the room but still okay nonetheless and had DirecTV with movie channels which was very nice! The staff was very professional and courteous. The only negative thing I could say...

My son and stayed here to go to the civil war game. Location was great for food, gas, and access to the freeway. The people at the front desk where very nice. Even booking the hotel was easy. I would consider this particular hotel to be lower middle class. I've stayed in others that are very nice, clean and updated....
