Stayed in Salem overnight due to massive power outage in NH . I grew up in Salem and was familiar with this hotel and the area. It was formerly a Ramada Inn in the 70's . The hotel looks recentely remodeled. Our room was neat and clean, no problems there, the staff was friendly. My wife said the breakfast was... More

I would first like to thank you for sharing your experience for fellow travelers and also for your business. Secondly, I am shocked to hear of the front desk person laying on the couch! I agree, it is extremely unprofessional and I am disappointed that my staff might act in such a way while at work. The expectation is that... More

I stayed here for a wedding with friends. The room was clean, nicely decorated, and a good size. Beds were comfortable. The only bad thing about the room was that the heat was on when we came in and it was suffocating. We had to sleep with the window open to cool it down (we didn't want to put on... More

Thanks so much for sharing your experience of our hotel! We certainly appreciate your business and am glad your stay was pleasant. I agree, Margarita's is the perfect 'after-wedding' spot for a nightcap with friends & family. They also offer lunch on weekends and dinner 7 days/ week until 10pm. Their bar area is open until 1am every night. I... More

Room did not have a refrigerator, microwave or free breakfast, items that I have come from to expect from hotels of this quality. Additionally, the bathroom fan made a lot of noise but did not work and the toilet seat was made of cheap plastic. On the plus side were free parking, an indoor swimming pool and hot tub, exercise...

Stayed here for a wedding. The staff were very friendly and I had reserved the room almost a year earlier and had no issues. This holiday inn had comfortable beds, and was in a good location, close to main roads and stores. There was a pool and a gym.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn because the nearest Best Western wasn't available, and because this was a good location for us. I made the mistake of pre-paying online, so we were stuck - and regretted it for the entire five days of our stay. This hotel is overpriced and lacks a lot of the amenities other chains provide for... More

I am so sorry you had such an awful time at our hotel! This is certainly not the norm as we can see from our other guest reviewers. I definitely wish these items were brought to my attention before you departed so we could have rectified some of the issues while you were still here. As I read your review,... More
