La Quinta Inn & Suites Salem
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Salem
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We checked in at 4:30PM and our very kind front desk agent tells us she ought to go check the room to make sure it's clean! We come back and she says actually, you all just go check to see if it's clean. If it's not clean at 4:30PM, then this La Quinta has some serious problems. Thankfully it was a clean, spacious, hotel room but the rest of the feel of the hotel itself seemed super sketch. The lobby was a cramped not a very well marked space and it wasn't the easiest to find 'Keewaydin' road coming from a place other than the highway. Stay in the La Quinta at North Andover, you'll have a better experience!

Nicely located to get to Logan Airport w/o paying Boston prices. Staff was very helpful. Good restaurant across the street and it was convenient to have laundry facilities on the first floor. Breakfast was ok & there were two waffle makers. It would have been nice to have ice on each floor though.

We stayed here for a one-night stay at the last second because the hotel we booked for five nights via Priceline gave us a smoking room that was way too uncomfortable for us to spend 15 minutes in, let alone the evening.

I had stayed here before about four years ago and remember being more impressed with the place back then. When we arrived at 1:00 AM, the parking lot was packed and we had to park in the back. This time around we received a non-smoking room on the second floor. Despite complaints of pervasive smoke, we (thankfully) smelled none.

The room was entirely unimpressive. It had a long hall to the studio area, which consisted of a queen bed, two nightstands, and a long dresser with a flat screen TV on top. The bathroom was cramped as well. Right before I went to sleep, I discovered an ant crawling on the nightstand, which I thought was weird since we were on the second floor, but I didn't see any others.

Because we got in so late, we weren't able to get up early enough for the breakfast. I went down at 9:30AM and the place was clean as though nothing had been there (some places leave things out for a bit, but not this one). It looked as though breakfast was just cold pastries though. A Dunkin' Donuts is less than a half mile away though.

I'd be careful coming up 93 north to this property. When we came in at 1:00AM, everything was just fine, but as we left around 11:00AM, it was solidly backed up for at least six miles. Very heavy construction is taking place on the northbound side of 93. Hence, if you're staying here and traveling to Boston, be aware of the potential for traffic.

Overall, an OK place, but not really worth the $95 we spent. However, a welcome respite from the smoke-filled hell of the room we were originally booked in elsewhere.

Front desk very helpful, trying hard but understaffed. Dirty parking lot, carpets, windows. Entire facility not up to La Quinta standards. One night is all we stayed. If we were staying in area longer would have moved

Let me start by stating that the staff was very helpful and friendly. I believe the problem with this property is the management/ownership. We stayed 4 nights. Lobby and breakfast area VERY hot. Trying to save money on A/C? Breakfast area was often out of items, but again the staff was helpful. The elevator broke down twice making it very cumbersome to checkout and take all the luggage down 3 flights of stairs... oh and the stairwells were extremely hot as well. I know this sounds like one of those reviews from a ticked of customer - but it really is not. This is probabaly one of the worst places I have stayed. As for the room... a typical hotel room. Carpets were pretty stained, showing their age. Shower was fine. Beds were not bad.

Room Tip: Stay on level 1 if the elevator breaks it will be no problem.
