This is our family’s preferred lodging in the Salem area The staff is friendly and very hospitable (Shout out to Misty who always makes our stay great!) The rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable

The beds are great! For breakfast you get vouchers to Denny’s, which is different and fun The pool area is GREAT It is located in a quieter business area of a main thoroughfare (Mission Street) so you’re not more than 15 minutes from most anything in Salem Definite recommend

Melanie Calderon

Cannot say enough about how great the service was here Misty went above and beyond to help make our stay more comfortable and convenient for us We will for sure make this our go-to place in Salem

Beds and pillows were great, room was super nice and comfy Really quiet on 3rd floor!! Fresh cookies, water bottles in room Great free Denny’s breakfast

Kendrick Windham

The staff are very nice The housekeepers do well at keeping the place clean The building it’s self has been very clean

And I love how if you have any questions, whoever that is at the counter is always willing to help They keep all of the amenities very clean I am personally quite impressed with this place And hope that others enjoy their stay as much as I have!

We had a wonderful time here Clean, workers were helpful and good attitude The next day the pool was fantastic after a long drive and before hitting the road again

However it would be helpful to put a sign on Hawthorne with your hotel nameKeep up the great work

Hotel was clean, rooms were older but maintained Pool and hot tub was ok Breakfast was absolutely horrible!! Don’t count on a good breakfast here or anything to drink with your “breakfast”

The biscuits were harder then a rock The eggs were dried out and the pancakes were hard Was here for a week and every day seemed to have similar issues They want you to pay for drinks here unlike a normal hotel that provides breakfast Didn’t even have water as an option

Nothing special but a decent hotel Dropped my daughter off for a birthday sleep over The heated pool was decent sized and they have a hot tub which was the big attraction for party

The room had 2 queens and a couch that folded into a bed but they only used the beds, which were reported comfy Covered loading/unloading zone at front but could have done without the half eaten food at entrance on floor Front desk staff greeted when I entered but otherwise seemed uninterested in the comings and goings There was a some refreshments by the door so overall not bad Unsure the cost per night as I didn’t rent the rooms

I had to get a room very last minute, as in my mother called while I was 45 minutes away and on my way to the area I had a room somewhere else

but it wasn’t made for human habitation and Motel 6 should be ashamed My mom had no trouble reserving a room for me and goodness what a difference I felt like I was in the lap of luxury The woman at the front desk when I arrived was professional, no nonsense, and efficient She was like a rock I didn’t know I needed while I was an emotional wreck from all my drama I was in town for one night for a funeral in the morning The hotel was incredibly clean The breakfast selection looked delicious (I could only stomach something really small but it all looked yummy!) This place is really easy to get to from the freeway *and* it’s right next to a cluster of shopping and food options that includes an REI and a McDonald’s, but don’t worry – the hotel has a dedicated parking lot Giant windows and a dedicated panel A/C for better control of the temperature There is a gym and a pool I didn’t get a chance at but have no doubt they are lovely If you’re considering this place, there isn’t any reason not to stay here and many reasons to stay

We had one reservation for 2 days using points in a 2 bed room and consecutively paid for a second reservation of 3 days in a 1 bed room Both rooms were spacious Hotel staff were extremely friendly and breakfast was consistently well stocked

The pool was very clean and empty The only issue was that we saw bugs in both rooms and the hallway The first room had a large bug in the bathroom and it went behind the mirror When it surfaced again, my daughter screamed We told the manager who was extremely apologetic An employee who overheard us talking asked if it was a spider or “potato” bug I said I thought it was a potato bug as it was large and round They commented that the heat (close to 90) was the likely cause In the second room (a few doors down from the first) the bug was above the bed This was unnerving and we all had trouble sleeping Again, other than bugs in both rooms, the hotel was greatOne additional note, the parking lot entrance is shared with the only In N Out Burger in Oregon The drive through is always crowded and occasionally very loud cars can be heard from the 4th floorThe area is fantastic with lots of food options and a Target (with curbside) less than a 2000 ft from the hotel

This Holiday Inn Express at Keizer/Salem OR looks brand new The king bed suite is as spacious as any I’ve seen Lots of user friendly features including the sink in the bathroom (A pet pieve of mine when hotels put the sink outside the bathroom in the living area)

Night light in bathroom, an extra lounge chair in addition to the sleeper sofa, foot stools under night stands, accent/mood lights above wardrobe Handy power outlets+++ Haven’t used any services yet, just checked in a few hours ago Great room at fair price so far

First time in and we will definitely be coming back frequently The food was delicious! Husband got the Rueben and I had the BLT on croissant with clam chowder, the sandwiches were great and chowder was truly one of the best I’ve had and we ended up ordering some to go for dinner later James made great recommendations and we had a good conversation while dining

Highly recommend you give them a try if you haven’t already

Lisa Thornton

My husband and I stayed here for a month over the holidaysThe bungalow was great! There’s plenty of space and even had a kitchen with all the amenities!The Gardner House is in a historic area just a few minutes walking to many local businesses and shopsAlso just a few miles from Salem

What a beautiful place to ‘getaway’ for a night or stop by and have coffee and enjoy the wonderful homemade desserts,food, and hospitality from James & Loni !!!I highly recommend Gardner House Cafe-Bed and Breakfast!!!Thank you James and Loni for making our stay most welcome, comfortable and blessed!

The furnishings and room are standard for a Residence Inn The bed is more comfortable than many Front desk staff is super friendly

The breakfast is pretty tasty with a decent assortment of food Unfortunately, the housekeeping is the least hospitable of any Residence Inn at which I’ve stayed I spend the vast majority of my time in hotels due to work (Diamond status for Hilton and Ambassador Elite for Marriott) so I get there have been some cutbacks because of Covid in most places, but housekeeping here is non-existent during your stay I stayed for 10 nights and had to specifically request any little thing I needed, including minor things like have the trash removed They do the bare minimum here Most hotels will at least do a room refresh every 4 or 5 days, but not here I work long, long days and don’t have the time or energy to micromanage the housekeeping I had planned on staying for another 10 days in March but will switch my reservation to a Hilton

Chrishna Stevens

Michelle at the front desk is amazing When I mentioned to her that there were a few things in the room not working she started doing all she could to get it fixed immediately even though I told her it was no big deal She would hear of it and insisted they would get on it right away, which they did

She was so kind and caring when our plans changed and we had to leave earlyNice breakfast and spacious rooms

Alicia Lerma

How would you feel if they charge you for 4 days instead of 1? 😡We checked our bank statement right after checking in and it was changed for 3 nights instead of 1 so we went back to the front desk to ask the manager for correct her mistake; she said could do anything so gave us the corporation’s phone number, when I called they told me to go back to the manager… 😡Well she didn’t help us told me to call again to corporation wich said they will refund it in 5-7 business days!Next day we check out as we should, later we checked our bank statement THEY CHARGED FOR ONE MORE NIGHT AGAIN !!!I’ve been calling numbers they referred me to another one everytime and NOBOBY has been able to help me and fix their mistakeI wonder if the mistake was to put credit for 5 nights in my debit card would be that hard to fix itTERRIBLE MANAGEMENT AND CORPORATION

Feedback From Real Customers


I stayed here for 9 nights for work and really enjoyed my stay The queen suite is super cute and comfortabe; I absolutely loved the decor, and it would make me happy to come back to it after a long day at work They used a pretty purple-toned curtain to create 2 separate living spaces, and it was awesome to be able to just open it up if i wanted more room to move around

The couch was perfect to kick back and relax in front of the huge (for a hotel room) TV The worst part of traveling extensively for work is having to eat out all the time, so I was really excited that this hotel allows you to check out an induction cook top with 2 burners and some pans I was able to cook my own dinners most days which is so much healthier than eating out! The front desk staff are really friendly and helpful- all of my interactions with them were great The only part of the stay I didn’t enjoy was the lackluster housekeeping You have to ask for your room to be serviced, and they may or may not stock your room I still had to go downstairs to ask for toilet paper, dish soap, and towels Through the week I had to empty my own trash Then a week passed before they serviced my room again- the night before I left! To top it off, when I came back in the room, I could tell they had vacuumed because the small furniture items (ottoman etc) and trash cans were still piled on the furniture This was a 5 star stay that housekeeping reduced to 3 or 35 stars

Anthony Atha

I really enjoyed my stay here We were on a road trip and able to book last minute The hotel is modern and very clean which is so important

The room was beautiful with vaulted ceilings, a kitchen, sitting area, separate bedroom and a bathroom Very large room compared to othersStaff was great Ron helped at check in was able to accommodate my requests Sherry helped at check out and was so friendly Definitely recommend staying here

Miraloma Gal

We had a nice and quiet stay at this hotel after spending a miserable two nights at a downtown Salem Airbnb The staff was so helpful in letting us check in early at 11 am The hotel is very nice and modern with comfortable beds, clean and nicely decorated room

Great complimentary breakfast in the morning We only stayed the one night and will definitely stay here again when we visit Salem, OR I highly recommend this hotel

Heather Greig

As a frequent bed and breakfast couple, my sweetheart and I have a new favorite B&B It’s Bella CollinaThe rooms are spacious, sound proof, spotless and each room’s outdoor space is such a wonderful personal touch

The setting over looking the Valley and the Costal Mountains as the backdrop is perfect as a launching pad to the local wineriesThe breakfast is top notchHowever, it’s the hospitality that takes an already stellar product and elevates it above all other B&B experiences Sherwood is a master of his craft as your host at Bella If you stay here, make sure to attend 5 pm happy hour It will make an already wonderful stay something special

Elisa ‘Ellie’ Nuth

Bella Collina was the perfect getaway! The room was comfortable, roomy, and beautifully decorated, complementing the classy yet comfortable vibe of the entire home The views are amazing, and location in the heart of Oregon wine country can’t be beat Super reasonable price for what we got, also

The hosts were incredibly accommodating and friendly, even from before we arrived via email communications Breakfast was delicious, and they even offered a picnic evening food option the day we arrived which was perfect for us since we arrived via bicycle and didn’t want to have to go anywhere else after a full day of riding and hills Highly recommend! We hope to be back sometime soon Thanks Sherwood!

Vuong N

If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would! 100000% would stay here again next time I’m in Oregon!Everything from late arrival check-in to early check-out was smooth and painless!Bed and Breakfast itself was cozy, peaceful, and beyond anything, I could possibly think of After arriving here wet and cold due to the weather, the heated bathroom floors were such a great touch and much needed The view from the balcony was breathtaking & no photos can show the beauty of it

The room was very clean and organized; you can tell effort was put into designing the room with maximum comfortSherwood was such an amazing host & very friendly making sure we were taken care of no matter what questions we hadIn conclusion; I am looking forward to coming back here in the near future and planning to stay here longer

Staff were very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, loved the pool! We were able to leave our bags at the front desk while we dealt with car issues, which was really nice I was having trouble with the handle to the room door, they sent someone from maintenance almost immediately Decor was super cute

Cannot praise more how helpful and friendly the staff wereAlso, I was in shock over the “continental” breakfast; they had eggs, chopped ham, waffle makers, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, bagels and cream cheese, pastries, and more! I was expecting a banana and a pre-packaged muffin, so this was a delicious surpriseRight next door was a tap house and amazing food truck, which made for a convenient and delicious dinner as well Trader Joe’s and Rite Aid were also conveniently nearby

Jonathan Kleinow

Stayed here for a family memorial service The staff were super friendly and helpful The room was clean and in good condition, although this is an older hotel

The continental breakfast had a good variety of items, including some really tasty scrambled eggs My only critique: they need better wi-fi 3Mbps down / 15 Mbps up isn’t cutting it in 2022

What a great place Perfectly located in downtown Silverton Rooms are very cute and comfortable

Now for the star of the show The restaurant attached is out of the world good, the staff are awesome It’s feels like a fancy 5 star but the prices are not 5 star The quality of food and portions are 5 star And again the staff are phenomenal


Absolutely a wonderful experience! The staff was understanding of the accidental 4 night charge (which I was refunded for the 4th night) The room was clean and the kitchen waa equipped with cooking and eating utensils with cleaning tools for cleaning your dishes (no dishwasher) The inn is within walking diatance of so many fun shops and restaurants plus a quick 6-8 minute walk to Roths

Only downside was the lack of a garbage disposal in the kitchen sink But other than that my bf and I enjoyed our weekend trip and would gladly take a trip there again

TR Lyke

Febuary 14th, 2022I drove 75 miles after calling the itinerary motel number at 5:00 today to say we would check in later I had to leave a message with my phone number Office sign hours till 6:00 Arrived before 7:30 to find no attendant, key, or instructions

Knocking and calling repeatedly could not raise anyone After a long wait and checking back an hour later with no response we drove back 75 miles to home This was a Valentine’s holiday for the 2 of use You ruined the day and wasted our time I had a valid confirmed reservation and this motel did not follow thru We were punctual with a call before closing, and the 2 phone numbers went to a recording Poor, very poor service especially when it was 37° outside Thanks for nothing and ruining our trip We will not pay for anything because we got way less than nothing
