Why Do People Love The Salem Inn?

We stayed at the West House, the main Inn building. The Inn actually consists of the West House plus two other houses within a block or so from the Inn. The hotel is close to “central” Salem where many shops/stores and restaurants are, along with a number of historical sites (across the street from the Witch House, a few blocks from Witch Dungeon Museum, Witch Trial Memorial, etc.) The room met our needs for our visit to Salem. The room included a kitchenette with small refrigerator. The room doors have keycode locks, so no keys. Most communication with the Inn was through texting, which included scheduling breakfast times and providing your breakfast order. Text replies from the hotel were almost immediate, so seemed like a convenient way to communicate with hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful during our visit.

What a beautiful B&B type historic hotel. Reminded us of The Francis in Maine. Great complimentary made to order breakfast. Very close to the waterfront and walking distance to everything. Would revisit in a heart beat.

I could write an essay about how much I enjoyed staying here. My husband, toddler, and I stayed at the West House and found it so warm and comforting! From the history and charming character of the room to the beautiful garden that we got to eat breakfast (and lunch) in. It has always been a dream of mine to visit and The Salem Inn was a perfect piece to this trip. The staff was so welcoming and kind, the location is across the street from amazing historical landmarks while being walking distance from everything you would want to go. I was heartbroken that we had leave, but also so excited knowing that we will visit again!

The staff was friendly and accommodating! Had last minute request for chocolates and roses and they made it happen! I love how everything is in walking distance to this inn. Our room was clean and cozy! Water was provided and was replaced when we went out!!! Mini fridge was clean! And was able to use the fireplace with instructions!!! The breakfast was AMAZING as well and right under the inn! Everything was just absolutely perfect! And was in love with the little budgies in the lobby!!!

My partner and I had a very nice stay at the Salem Inn on Summer Street. Very smooth and easy contactless check in. Beautiful antique style room with lots of personality. Built in the 1800s, you could feel the history in this place. Free parking pass to the lot on Norman St or parking in back of a house. Friendly receptionist, inviting. A walk away from major restaurants, stores and museums. We went to the Salem Museum and it was only a 10 minute walk from here. Breakfast was complimentary and delicious, I had quiche & sausage and my partner had a Belgian waffle. The woman manning the food station was warm and very nice. We loved having a chat with her and wish her well when she gets to rest in either South Carolina or New Hampshire! Overall, great experience for our first experience in Salem! Would be happy to come again in the future.
