We decided to take a field trip to salem, not sure what to expect with all the snow in that area,we arrived late and our rooms were all set and we got a last dip in the pool before ten. The tavern was open until 12, the tavern and restaurant are all in one, a bit tight for me, but... More

This hotel is located on the waterfront. Rooms were very nice. Breakfast was good. Perfect location. Did not expect a swimming pool, but the pool was really nice. Enjoyed stay in Salem for Christmas break.

I stayed during the Blizzard of 2015 and the hotel made some very bad decisions. They decided on Monday, the first day of the blizzard, they decided to redo the restaurant floor. That meant that they kitchen only served room service breakfast on Tuesday. No lunch or dinner Monday or Tuesday, there were people in the hotel that could not... More

I stayed here during Salem's off season and I really enjoyed it. Central location, lots of interesting things to walk to near by (Pickering wharf, maritime museum, Jaho cafe, some shops). It was clean, cute and large. Felt very luxurious for the price I paid.

I came here this past weekend with my boyfriend to celebrate a new job. After reading online reviews I had high hopes however they were quickly gone and I was left with a "meh" feeling. The girls at the front desk were fine, not overly friendly but they got us checked in quickly so that was good. We had room... More

The hotel room was clean and neat and the bed (king size) was very comfortable. The front desk staff people were friendly and efficient. It is the Pub that was a real disappointment. For our evening meal we ordered the beer battered fish. The meal arrived on a plate of french fries with a reddish/brown blob of something on top.... More

Overall - It serves its purpose if you are looking for a hotel in downtown Salem at a reasonable price (at least mid-week) and you don't need require much in the way of service. Pros: Clean room, the king deluxe we ended up with had ample space and small refrigerator, decent price, free parking, and great location just a few... More

We stay at this hotel when we visit the area (have stayed 5 or 6 times over the past few years) - it is close to family and friends and decent restaurants. Rooms are nice and clean and the staff friendly. Rates go up during the weekends and there is often a wedding reception on the weekend. The fact that... More

We booked a weekend stay based on reviews on TripAdvisor and I admit to feeling misled. The "good" is the hotels location and that our room was spacious with two queen beds. However, (and I note that we travel frequently) the carpet in the room had to be the dirtiest and most stained I've ever seen in a hotel room.... More
