“Great Value, Great Location, Great Staff, and a great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

We found the Salem Waterfront Hotel via their website, as well as through a recommendation. All looked good going through their website, we got a great rate online, and after confirming via a direct phone call to the hotel, we booked.

After spending 3 hot summer nights in the hustle and bustle of downtown Boston, the quiet location of the Salem Waterfront Hotel was welcome. Easy parking, nice large rooms, a cozy little bar, and a pretty good swimming pool welcomed us. The beds and pillows were great, and we found every aspect of the hotel to be very clean and tidy--definitely well run! Even with a couple weddings going on the weekend we were there, the hotel was quiet and organized.

When my wife developed food poisoning after eating at a local restaurant (not associated with the hotel), the staff were great---getting us Pepto at 3am, and helping her through the day in bed while I kept the kids entertained at a local beach.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I travel A LOT with business, and I would rate this as one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in over the last 10 years.

Hotel is centrally located and convenient to all major attractions, never needed the car. Plus, the rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

This was a nice clean modern hotel and perfectly situated to enjoy the sites of Salem, all within walking distance. Great restaurant was perfect for breakfast on the outside patio with friendly staff.

Room was spacious, well appointed and serviced with everything one would need.

Staff at front desk were very friendly as well. Free parking was right outside the main entrance..

THIS IS A COMPLETELY SMOKE FREE HOTEL!

Room Tip: We booked online to receive WEB special. We were on the 2nd floor and overlooked the front of the ho...

This place was awesome the service was amazing and the people were very friendly. I would recomend this place to any one that is having an event or are looking for a place to host a party. The food was very good and we had the patio to go out to as well. The funtction room was big enough for 40 people even more. I loved it and the service was amazing, very attentive and caring towards are needs. Very classy and a resonable price.

I am so happy I booked this hotel. This hotel is in a great location and is pretty on the outside and on the inside. Our room was a great size and was very comfortable and clean. The price was also great! Only small complaint is that I wish there was a mini fridge. Overall, great hotel, great price, great everything!

We stayed during the 4th of July weekend along with my parents. The hotel allowed my parents to stay saturday and sunday without staying friday. They usually require a friday and saturday stay. When my parents arrived on saturday, my father was the VIP customer of the day. This made his day as well as ours. The staff was friendly without being obstrusive. They called each time we had room service to make sure we were satisfied. Salem is a great city; much more than witches. This hotel was exceptional. We will be back.

I am so glad that your father got the opportunity to not only stay with us but also be recognized at the VIP of the day! While all of our guests are truly special we select one guest per day to make feel extra special by providing some little extras to make their say one of a kind! Salem is such a great city and I am glad you got to enjoy not only its witch history but also all of the other sites and attractions that our great city has to offer! We hope to see you soon!!
