was in the Salem area for 6 days and 5 nights spending time with family. The hotel itself is very nice, the lobby is well maintained as are all of the hallways.
There's a nice restaurant with good and affordable food. The atmosphere is a little loud as is right next to the lounge/bar area with nothing really separating the 2, but nothing excessively bad.
The marketplace was a little limited, no real food options, but a nice variety of snacks and beverages, would have liked to have seen some iced tea though.
We had 2 rooms, one with a king-sized bed, one with 2 doubles. We had requested extra towels and both of them and they were waiting for us when we arrived. The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable. Also, they do NOT use bed boards, which is a huge bonus for me. I'm in a wheelchair and use a hydraulic lift, bed boards prevent the lift from going underneath the bed. These are the boards that many hotels use which are like a frame that goes around the entire base of the bed. I believe their primary use is to cut down on the amount of time it takes to clean the room, since there's no way to clean underneath the bed once they are in place and the staff doesn't have to worry about it. I hate this (if you ever look underneath a bed in a hotel that does use bed boards, you won't believe how dirty it is). But this hotel uses the good, old-fashioned bed frame with legs. The mattress was comfortable and supportive, it was neither supersoft or hard, it was really a great balance.
The hotel was extremely easy to get to, being just off the highway, and made it very easy to get to Salem, Burlington or Boston.
Overall, would definitely stay at this hotel again
