This hotel was fine for a one-night stay as my husband and I made our way back to DC from a trip to New England.
Our room was nice and clean. Having said that, the walls were VERY thin and everything in the next room could be heard. Luckily, our neighbors were reasonable and considerate enough, and we didn't hear a peep from them after we went to bed.
The hotel has a perfect location with respect to all the important historic sites in Salem. Everything is within easy walking distance. Unfortunately, the word "waterfront" in the name can be a bit misleading ... it didn't seem as though that many rooms had actual VIEWS of the waterfront.
Two minor issues were that breakfast wasn't included (hey, so many places these days include it!), but at least it wasn't too hard to find cheap places to eat nearby. The other thing was that the folks could have been a lot friendlier. Ah well.
The truth is this was a fine hotel, and we had no major complaints. On the other hand, nothing really stood out either.
