“Perfect Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2007

Everything about my experience with the Morning Glory and the Shea's was wonderful. A friend and I stayed their for a mother's weekend away. The location was perfect for shopping, dining and visiting the museums (and on a bitter cold weekend in January having a central location was important!). Breakfast is served in an inviting room that has ocean views. At the end of the day coming back to an inviting fire in the Rebecca Nurse room was an added bonus and the ability to watch dvds in the privacy of our room was really great!

There are so many details that make the Morning Glory a great place to stay in Salem. It'd be difficult to list them all here but some of the key ones are: off street parking, fantastic location, very friendly and helpful hosts (Bob's parents were in charge during our stay), a safe neighborhood, and cozy, comfortable rooms.

  • Liked — The location was perfect for sightseeing and shopping in Salem.
  • Disliked — Other guests opted to stay up late in the common area and though they were quiet I could still hear them.

My husband and I celebrated our Honeymoon at The Morning Glory Inn B+B. Our host Bob Shea was warm and hospitable as well as thoughtful and courteous. The Inn was imaculate and quaintly decorated with all the charm of a New England cottage. The Inn is located on the water and the view is spectacular and serene. The conveinient location to all of the historic attractions was optimal.

We plan on returning next year for our anniversary. We'll see you soon Bob!

Fondly,

It was just by luck we got to stay at this beautiful B&B. We drove to Salem from Prince Edward Island, Canada and stopped at the Visitors Information. Luckily there was the top floor suite available, originally we were going to stay for 1 night but ended up staying for two. The rooms were so clean and had a warm romantic feel to them and best of all it was within walking distance of everything Salem has to offer and our room had a view of the beautiful lake.

I brought my husband to his favorite place, Salem, MA, for his 50th birthday. I wanted a romantic place and found it at 22 Hardy Street in Salem, MA - Morning Glory Bed & Breakfast. We stayed in the lovely Rebecca Nurse room that had a wonderful fireplace that was not only romantic, but warming on a January evening.

The hosts were absolutely wonderful (Bob & Marianne). Marianne's baked goods for breakfast were out of this world. They went out of our way to make our stay enjoyable, going as far as getting cocca for us. The B&B was clean and comfortable, including the common room. They even remembered that it was my husband's birthday and wished him such as well.

We are going to definitely make the Morning Glory an annual event.

After the long flight from Sydney Australia, two nights at Morning Glory was just what we needed before heading North to Vermont for a family thanksgiving.

The home is excellent in every detail, a real touch of New England. Bob (Snr) and Maryanne were excellent hosts and the property is in excellent position to take in all that Salem has to offer.

I couldn't agree more with earlier reviews. I booked this B & B on foot of the same reviews and it completely lived up to expectation. The whole place is spotlessly clean, our room was really cosy with a fire ready to light (which crackled, thanks Bob!), and very comfortable bed. We had arrived earlier that day from Ireland and usually I have difficulty sleeping the first night in the US from jet lag but no problem at all here, last memory was gazing into the fire and the next second it was time for a fab breakfast! Thanks for everything Bob, and especially for going out of your way to drop us to the train station the following evening, much appreciated. It was a great start to what turned out to be a really fun whistle stop tour of Salem and Boston. Could not recommend this B & B enough, it won't disappoint.

As ususal the Shea homestead is top notch. We have been to Morning Glory everytime we are in the Boston area, the welcome is first class.

Bob is a genial and amiable host with a good knowledge of local restaurants, pubs and inns.

If you're visiting Mass. then Morning Glory BB is an absolute must, especially with the ferry to Boston virtually at the end of the street.
