Sept 2013: We arrived at the hotel, without a reservation, as we just hoped to find somewhere to stay in Salem, our destination at start of trip was vague, road trip with friends. When we arrived, they at first told us that they were almost fully booked, then they made some changes and gave us 2 rooms, with upgrades, as... More

My friend and I were visiting the area and so glad we stayed here. Beautiful lobby with fresh flowers. Big room with upscale decor. Very good service. I'm in a wheelchair and the accommodations were wonderful for me. Plenty of parking. Located within blocks of several great places to eat and shop. In the heart of things yet didn't feel... More

My daughter and I spent a nice couple of days at this hotel. It's situated in a great part of town, within walking distance to all of the main attractions and shopping, had reasonable rates and it was clean and had just a perfect room for us. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and will stay here again... More

We called Salem Waterfront and they were able to get us in a day early. The staff is accommodating and friendly! The hotel is very clean. The... More

Beautiful room, wonderful location, but there wasn't really a waterfront view. Maybe in the higher floors of some room facing some other part of the town, but not where we were. It's so close to the older, more historic section of Salem. Literally a 2-3 minute walk from the hotel to the Olde Burying Ground Cemetery. Upon entering, the hotel... More

Nice hotel conveniently located to several restaurants and downtown Salem. Excellent and friendly staff. On site restaurant less than average. The quality and finishes of the hotel are comparable to a mid to upper-low level chain. Contractor cut corners in construction quality. Avoid rooms anywhere near the elevator and ice machine on each floor otherwise you won't get any sleep... More
