We visited the Salem Waterfront Hotel for a wedding in September 2015. From the moment we arrived, the staff in general were not pleasant. When we walked up to check-in, we had to wait over 20 minutes to begin the process. One person was working with another couple checking in (for over 20 minutes!) and the other person, Samantha attended... More

We stayed here over the weekend for my 50th Birthday. Our party was at Finz, which is a restaurant right around the corner from the hotel. We were greeted by Kirk, the super nice bellboy who took our luggage up to our room (401) which was a great corner room, with a king sized bed. The only problem is not... More

When we checked into the hotel, I asked if we could have a room with a view of the water. I was told they don't actually have any water view rooms. Hmmm. I guess the name "Salem Waterfront Hotel" is a misnomer. So then I asked if the room they gave me had a nice view. Both people at the... More

High quality hotel with nice, clean rooms, but the web site promised more than the place delivered. The golf cart to Pickering Wharf exists, but was rarely actually available. The location is fantastic.

This hotel is the best place to host a wedding! With all the folks coming in from out of town, it made it perfect, during the colder weather to be under one roof with everyone! The Regatta Pub handled our crowd without missing a beat! The wedding coordinator was spectacular! She handled everything flawlessly. I honestly can't say enough about... More

We spent two nights this month after a pleasant stay in January 2015. We were sorry to find out that Julia, last year's manager no longer worked here. While we were very pleased with the personalized service provided to us on our previous stay, we found the hotel's condition somewhat deteriorated and worn out. The elevator seemed to be mechanically... More

From the moment I ckecked in the front desk went beyond the norm to make sure I was welcomed and comfortable with my room. Now, I will go into a more itemized report on my accommodations. Beds we...

This was my second visit to this hotel. If you're going to see the sights in Salem this is the perfect place to stay. Everything worth seeing is within walking distance. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a huge indoor pool, a beautiful lobby, it always smells nice and the staff is friendly.

We were visiting relatives in a nearby town and stayed at this gem of a hotel. It was our first stay at this location and enjoyed our weekend stay. The hotel is welcoming; is in a great location to tour Salem and the staff from Keith at the front desk to the Pub were friendly and professional. We will definitely... More
