While looking for a place to stay outside of Salem, I came across the Independence. It was well worth the drive off of I-5. Beautiful room, great service, and a yummy breakfast all included. The rooftop deck and surrounding grounds were so enjoyable. The room was large with a great view of the river. I look forward to a return trip.

We felt welcomed right away. Super easy check in. Plenty to see walking around town (though we were there on a Sunday so many businesses were closed or closed early, just something to consider, not a complaint) The restaurant was nice, good food and drinks! Overall we got exactly what we wanted - a nice little overnight getaway!
