Located right next to "the witch house" in the heart of down town stands the Salem inn. A historical building full of charm! Walking distance to all the shops and sights and great food too! You walk into the lobby and are greeted by the sounds of tiny finches and a friendly desk clerk. There's a book exchange and the... More

If you are young and agile and have no luggage, like waking up at dawn, the sound of traffic and enjoy stale pastries for breakfast: look no further. This place is made for you. The Salem Inn is separated into two buildings with some of the bedrooms two blocks from the reception and breakfast room. Our first room was on... More

Got a good rate on-line for our one-night stay - excellent location for our trip to Salem State for our son's graduation. Definitely an historic property - we stayed in Curwen House - located close to the main Inn on foot, but when you are driving you have to go several blocks out of the way due to one-way streets...

We stayed in one of the family apartments in the WEST HOUSE. The property is quite charming and historic as expected, within walking distance to many shops, restaurants and attractions. Attention to details in our room was disappointing. The kitchenette had a convection oven with hot plate burners to cook on and very slow to heat anything up. Fridge was... More

I think this is a charming place and great for people who love history, but I was on the first floor and the road was very noisy the entire night - hard to sleep. I can't imagine what the noise level would be if peak season. I did like the cute decor and recommend the whirlpool suite and self-serve breakfast... More

Stayed a couple years ago and it was very nice and interesting. They had memoirs of previous guest's incounters with "peculiar" events within certain rooms. A member of our group experienced a bizziare event one night. She saw the closet door open and came bursting into our room from the living room area. She also heard loud activity above her,... More

Our group of five just returned from Salem. We were booked in The Peabody house and it was perfect for us. Yes it could be updated but it's an old house. The breakfast was light but a great start to our day. It didn't to start until 8 but it worked for us. The quiche was the best. The lovely... More

Stayed here for two nights. Used Booking.com for a great rate-Very cool place, nice rooms and located in a nice, walkable area. Not far from Salem attractions. Breakfast was good. Overall very nice stay for the price.

My husband and I stayed here last March, the honeymoon package was a great price and included Jacuzzi tub and $50 gift certificate to a very quiet little Italian Restaurant that actually surprised me at how delicious it was.. Came with Roses and Champagne, chocolates...very classy ;) The staff was friendly, helpful and always smiled. The Continental Breakfast was the... More
