My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend in September in order to attend a friend's wedding in Danvers, MA. About 40 miles north of Boston, and about 15 minutes north of Salem, The Wylie Inn is part of a conference center that belongs to Endicott College. The college also has an event hall for weddings and receptions. I think it was called Tupper. Anyway, the hotel is modern and clean, has a pleasant staff, and offers a free cold breakfast. Coffee and tea and apples are always available. Rooms have a desk and chair, queen size bed, mini fridge, TV, ironing board and iron, a safe and bathroom toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, facial soap and hand cream. Free WiFi is offered in the lobby and in a room called The Commons where groups can meet.
The bathrooms have only a shower stall with a shower curtain. The shower heads (we had friends in another room) sprayed water in all directions. Make sure the shower curtain is totally closed!
There is no seating outside the hotel. It would be nice to have a bench or two for folks who are waiting for a ride, or for those who smoke. There are large ashtray/cigarette receptacles outside.
For a nice side trip, follow the coast road north for about 10 minutes to Manchester-by-the-Sea. It's a very picturesque town with a variety of shops and places to eat.
