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

Great location. Walking distance to many shops, restaurants and sights. Recently updated rooms with full amenities. Very friendly & helpful staff. I stayed in mid-December, so not peak season and the room rate was very competitive vs lesser hotels in the area.

I recently had a 2 day business retreat at the Salem Waterfront Hotel. I generally go into these things with mixed expectations about the facilities. I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I walked in and the greeting at the front desk. It was cold and snowing outside, warm and very cheerful inside. Every employee was positive and kind as...
