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 have stayed here for the past 3 years and it is never a disappointment! This year we had a horrible experience at the beginning of our vacation at a hotel in RI. 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

Convenient, clean, comfortable , quiet ( check out their policy of fining people who make too much noise). Restaurant was below average. This and the Hawthorne are the only hotels in town. Overpriced but worth it.

The room was nice as was the staff, who told us we had one of the better limited waterfront views. The only water we could see from our room was condensation from A/C units at the nearby shops. The only water you see from the hotel at all are not ocean, but possibly the little area where a few small... More

We stayed at the Salem Waterfront Hotel for a wedding (which also happened to be our one-year wedding anniversary weekend) and had an incredible experience! My husband worked with Gina, Michelle, and Ryan to ensure that everything was perfect. When we arrived, champagne, chocolates, and red roses were waiting in the room for us! I was beyond impressed and can't... More

This hotel has very nice rooms for reasonable prices. The hotel is in a great location. We were able to walk to all attractions we wanted to see in Salem. There are also several good restaurants within walking distance. The rooms were clean and well kept. Unusually, they provide a toothbrush and toothpaste in the bathroom in case you have... More

The managers booked a party for a celebrity basketball player and decided to give them the whole restuarant which left the other customers to fend for themselves and we couldn't dine where we paid good money to. Then they took the bar away from a wedding party and gave it to the basketball player. Guess what? We had the whole... More
