This is a pleasant place to spend a long weekend. My daughter and I shared a suite. (Note to all hotels: Just because two people travel together and share a room doesn't mean they want to share a bed!) The sofa bed where my daughter slept was very comfortable, and roomy enough not to need pulling out to full size.... More

What a gem you have in Sandra Mandravellis, Night Manager, at Salem Waterfront Hotel. Ms. Mandravellis’ warmth and efficiency helped to end a very trying/emotional day, for my family and myself, on a high note. On Monday, March 23, 2015, my brothers and I were expecting to spend the day visiting with our mother reminiscing about our childhood and checking... More

As a Salem resident for 30 years I never needed to stay in a local hotel. After moving out of state and coming back for a visit, I chose to stay at the Waterfront because I had always heard good things. For a hotel that has thousands of international guests every year, I was not impressed. The lobby was lovely... More

Enjoyed our stay and everything was wonderful! Cozy, beautiful rooms, clean, excellent restaurant on site. Walking distance to everything, very convenient. You can walk to downtown, shopping and restaurants. We will stay there again, definitely. Truly enjoyable! Highly recommend for couples, families or business travelers.

Well placed, tidy. No complaints. Could get crowded and noisy. Breakfast - good eggs, potatoes and toast under $10. Close to some nice bars and restaurants. Off the beaten track and a good change from the big chains.

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was in a great location with restaurants, coffee houses and attractions nearby. We never used our car during our stay but parking was available on the premises. The room was large, clean and comfortable and our eight year old really enjoyed the pool. We will definitely come back in the future.

Tommy, the house - keeping manager was beyond nice and helpful, and brought up a microwave and a refrigerator at our request. He also allowed us to check in three hours early. Very nice stay! Will stay there again the next time we are in Salem.

Really glad I booked this hotel. It was clean, the room was nice and big, the staff were friendly, free wifi and parking and a great location (although, Salem is easily walkable so I'm sure any location is fine). The wifi was amazing - even managed to watch a movie and use Skype. They had a vending machine and ice... More

We stayed for one night and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is fairly small, quiet and very clean. The room was fairly large and comfy. Parking and internet are both free. The front desk staff is terrific. It really isn't on the waterfront, but the location is very convienent to restaurants, downtown, the PEM, and the waterfront. There is a... More
