Clean room, quick check in, friendly staff. Is centrally located within quick walking distance of Essex St, House of Seven Gables, Witch History Museum, and Howling Wolf. We didn't utilize options like the wake up breakfast that is delivered to your room or the pool mostly because we were on our own timetable

I stayed at the Salem Waterfront Hotel and Suites for 2 nights last week, with my husband. We came to enjoy the sights and history of Salem. Most important to us was the location, and this hotel's location is perfect. It is right in the middle of everything you would want to see in Salem; everything is within walking distance.... More

The Salem Waterfront Hotel was great value for the money. We paid approx $155 for a King Room which was nicely decorated in a nautical style with dark wood furniture, a Keurig coffeemaker and excellent A/C. The lobby was attractive and smelled lovely. Free coffee in the mornings. Parking out front was free and we could easily walk to Salem's... More

The place is quite popular and was completely booked all three nights we stayed here over a period of ten days. It has a nice breakfast with convenient hours. The hotel itself is conveniently located next to the interstate as well as downtown.

Stayed for three days and loved everything about this place from the room to the welcoming, helpful staff to the small touches such as offering lemon water in the lobby. It's an easy walk to all Salem attractions and right on the waterfront near varied options for dining. Special shout out to Tony, the friendly and professional parking attendant! Awesome!

This hotel is in a great location. By the water but in walking distance to everything, places to eat, shopping, and all the attractions. Would definitely stay again. The Room service was good, but remember there are plenty of restaurants that deliver food.

One of my sons and I recently spent 3 nights here. The property is lovely and its location is absolutely superb! Our suite was attractively furnished, comfortable, and well-equipped. This hotel is within easy walking distance to dozens of historic sites, shops, and attractions; once a person arrives, a car really isn't necessary. All employees we encountered were very pleasant...

This hotel completely lived up to all our expectations! It was so perfectly located within easy walking distance of just about everything that we never moved our car from the hotel's free parking lot. The service was exceptionally friendly and efficient. Everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome and provide whatever we needed. The room was... More
