When we arrived the parking lot was full, but the attendant found us a space and gave us the parking pass for the night. The room we got was very nice and comfortable with a nice view of Salem.

Stayed here on Saturday night - I was concerned that there was a security deposit required and that they stated they had a "firm zero tolerance policy on noise" - all of this made me HOPE we would be able to get a good night's sleep. I had nothing to worry about. We stayed on the 4th floor in a... More

I wanted to stay here. It's an older building, but nicely refurbished, right dead center in Salem, right next to the common, up the street from Pickering Wharf, across the block from Laurie Cabot's witch shop. Has a bit of a nautical motif, the restaurant is called the Main Brace, nice old paintings on panelled walls in the lobby, leather... More

We stayed here as it was the only reasonable location available prior to an early triathlon the following morning. Had 4 people (2 adults and 2 children) in a 2 bed room. It was surprisingly spacious with a sitting area extension adjoining the beds. Well appointed. However, the bathroom was comically small. The staff were friendly and parking (even for... More
