A pretty scarred and run down motel on a boring commercial strip. Really nothing to recommend it; even the price for what it was was too much. There were stains on the carpets which were kinda troubling. The only good thing is that the staff were very friendly and helpful.

My best friends and I decided to take a girls trip to Salem, this was the only place available. WORST motel I've ever stayed at. When we arrived they put the 4 of us in a room with a queen bed. When we went to the desk they told us our only other option was a smoking room. So we... More

Only room we could get being Columbus Day weekend. The is like stepping back in the 50s. The heater did not work so they had a space heater in the room to keep it warm. The shower had a large ball of hair on the shower. This really grossed me out just to think I needed to take shower &... More

The absolute worst experience ever! Mold, cracks, hair on the wall (that's right) smelled of marijuana and piss! Stained sheets, broken shades. DO NOT STAY!! The first room I stayed in, the bathroom door was broke, so that it didn't stay closed, the closet was unusable, and the carpet had a needle in it! The second was even worse! The... More

We were looking for a place to stay outside of Boston and all the motels in this area seemed to be full. We found this one, overpriced, but thought we had no choice. We positively hated it and moved to the all-new Motel 6 for the rest of our stay. It was cheaper, much newer and cleaner.

So we had the boss book our room. Was shocked when we checked in. The outside looked promising, private entrances for each room. Our room smelled so bad! Like someone had locked themselves in for a year smoking cigarets & not bathing. The mattress was yellowed and sagged. The walls were dirty as if many things had been thrown at... More

My family and I decided to take a trip to Salem Massachusetts from Nova Scotia and not realizing how crazy busy the area is around Halloween, we hadn't made a reservation at any motels. We chose a random one off of our GPS and unfortunately, this is where we ended up. This motel was WAY overpriced for what it was.... More

Stayed there as part of our Big 2013 Road Trip. Pulled in late during a storm after seeing the bright neon sign on US 1, & asked to see a room. Staff acted like I was trying to defraud them. Room was adequate (nice older tile in the bath). Not very clean under furniture/counters. Very high price ($89) for what... More

At 9pm 2 people checked in on my right, within 20 minutes, the heaboard was thumping off the wall. This went , off and on, for 2 hrs. At 1am, very intoxicated couple checked... More
