Salem Oregon Hotels

As the capitol of Oregon, Salem sees its fair share of business travelers and tourists hoping to learn a bit more about the state. As such, hotels in Salem Oregon tend to either cater to business travelers and government officials, or to history lovers. Either way, there are some good Salem Oregon hotel deals available to those who look, or Salem does offer some great places to stay.

Salem Oregon hotel deals for travelers can most easily be found by booking your hotel away from the downtown area, and away from the capitol building. A cheap hotel Salem Oregon will likely be found by booking a hotel room in a larger chain hotel. You can also try booking a package deal and keeping an eye out for sales on hotel rooms. Although the town of Salem does not have an official busy or slow season, as a general rule summer is the time to travel in the United States and hotel rooms will be more expensive as a result. This does not mean, however, that you won’t be able to find Salem Oregon hotel deals in the summer. Check frequently with online hotel booking chains for summer sales, and if you are able try to book your stay far in advance or at the last minute. Sometimes last minute deals on rooms can provide some of the best prices.

As a bonus, they are close to the site of Salem’s well-preserved first settlement. Families and children in particular love the intrigue of seeing this settlement in its original state.

Another great way to find a cheap hotel Salem Oregon is by booking your hotel stay as a package with other attractions or amenities. If you plan to rent a car while you are in Salem, try booking your hotel room from the same booking site as your rental car. Often, companies will give better deals to travelers who book multiple things with their company.

If the hotels in Salem Oregon aren't quite your style, about 15 minutes east outside of Salem, history lovers or couples on vacation can find the Water Street Inn.
