The hotel is locally located and within walking distance to the historical downtown, restaurants and tours. Cons: pool is located past the lobby, so had to walk past a reception (wedding/engagement ). To get to the pool. No clean towels in the pool area and toilet overflowing (we had to alert housekeeping). Hairs on sheets in bed. Most like laundered,... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night and were really pleased! The hotel staff were very friendly, the room was very large and clean and the hotel is in a great location. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all got a great nights sleep. We parked and didn't have to get back into our car until we checked... More

I've stayed here a few times on business and it's always hard to leave. It's within walking distance of everything in Salem. The restaurant is very good, so is the bar and there are great shops right behind it. In the parking lot is a kiosk for boat excursions - strongly recommend taking one of the sunset cruises. It was... More

We stayed one night while touring New England last autumn. Nicely furnished. Paid more than we usually would for a hotel but location was superb for visiting Salem's attractions. Clean and comfy room. As a florist the reception lobby area flowers and autumnal display were a pleasure to see. The breakfast was delicious. Probably the best breakfast I have ever... More

The hotel is ideally located closed and within walking distance of all attractions. It is not exactly water front but close! The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and you are met ate your car by staff to help get you and your bags into the hotel.

There are some solid plusses to the Salem Waterfront Hotel. Location is great. On the water, but central and within walking distance to pretty much all of historic Salem. A good number of restaurants within walking distance, a number of them with outside seating. Front desk staff members also were, consistently, friendly, helpful and welcoming. The main reason for the... More

The hotel is in a great location, very close to the sightseeing attractions in town, many very good restaurants and the waterfronts/wharf area. We were able to reserve a 2-Dbl bed unit which was not ideal for a couple. The room was large and well appointed. It's not brand new but relative recent refurbishing. Ther is a nice K-cup coffee...

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed everything about the hotel. Our room was a nice size and included a Keurig coffee maker, microwave and fridge so we could keep drinks, and heat-up leftovers. The bed was very comfortable with some extra pillows. The location was convenient and an easy walk to all the attractions. The only downside is... More

Fantastic location, free car parking and wifi, hotel from the outside looks very modern although I found the room to be fairly dated with no fridge or safe. We stayed for 1 night and was allocated a room on the 4th floor, check in staff were friendly. Weather was lovely during our stay so we were able to eat out... More

This is truly a beautiful hotel. The staff is great and knowledgeable. The hotel is immaculate!! My only complaint truly is the beds in the rooms. It was like sleeping on a stone wall. I prefer a more softer mattress and the mattress here was like a rock. My son is 15 years old and never complains...He could sleep on... More
