My two teenage kids and a friend and myself stayed at this fantastic location on our recent trip to Boston/Salem Mass. The location is very close to Salem, just up the street actually, many malls, restaurants etc. It is also about a 20 min drive to downtown Boston. The location is very quiet, off the beaten path and the accommodations were amazing. We stayed in a 2BR that had a full kitchen and living area. The only downside was that there was only 1 bathroom, but we survived as we were out most of the time anyways. It was nice to have the full kitchen as it gave you the opportunity to cook a quick dinner as opposed to eating out all the time. They have what they call a grab and go breakfast which is included in the price, this is just muffins, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, tea, juice and fresh fruit. We just bought a loaf of bread and some eggs to compliment our breakfast. The staff at the front dest was so friendly with directions and helping us chose which attractions were best suited for all of us. The room was kept very clean and I had absolutely no complaints whatsoever. The cleaning staff was also very accommodating with us, making sure we had enough towels everyday for everyone's shower. The beach we chose to go to was Winger Shaek beach, the drive was about 25 min from the hotel, and the parking was 20 dollars, but you don't have a choice, there is no where else to park. the beach is clean and you can walk out very far in the water and it doesn't get deep, that is if you can stand the cold of the Atlantic. Back to the hotel though, I can't say enough about the staff there, always with a smile, always willing to answer questions and they always asked us how are day was when we came back from an excursion. The price was amazing as well, if you are going to stay for a week or more, it is very inexpensive. They supply all the cleaning supplies as well, I've been to suites before where if the soap runs out to wash the dishes, you are on your own, but this place was once again, very accommodating. The lobby is full of brochures to help you pick out the best places to go as well, we would recommend the trolley tour in Boston, the freedom trail in boston, Mikes bakery in Boston (buddy has competition!) the JFK museum and of course, Cheers. In Salem, we did the witch museum, the peabody essex museum and the house of seven gables. We also took the salem ferry to boston, it's a one hour ride that there is actually a tour guide on. It also serves alcoholic beverages and hot food with a place to eat inside, hey it kills the time. We went whale watching in Gloucester, which is about a 25 min drive from the hotel at Bill's whale watching, amazing time! It was a 5 hour trip I think because the water was choppy, but we saw about 30-40 whales, amazing time. Just remember to bring a jacket, and rubber sole shoes, and take a gravol if you get sick easily. All in all we had a fantastic time and are already planning our trip back there next summer.
