My daughter and I came to Salem for her 30th birthday trip and spend 2 nights at the Daniels House We were in the Marion Room, on the top floor with a shared bath The shared bath wasn’t a problem, and we both loved the claw foot tub

Our room’s ceilings were only 6 ft tall, but the room itself is large and spacious so it never felt cramped or uncomfortable The queen bed was very comfortable We did take the tour of the house and we both appreciated our stay there even more after learning it’s history We loved that the house is in walking distance of so much of Salem, in our 2 days we only drove to one spot, the rest of the time we walked Perfect location! The vouchers to Red’s were appreciated and the food there is fantastic! We definitely want to stay again!

Shane Tiernan

We really loved this place It was creepy and comfy It was like staying in a museum

Parking was included too We got a continental breakfast and vouchers for $10 off (per person) to go to a restaurant about a half mile away that was pretty good It would have been nice to eat at the house, but sounds like Covid has been causing problems with that One thing that worked out fine for us because no one else was staying on our floor, was that there was a “shared bathroom” Also the ceilings were low (about 6ft tall) in our room, but again that wasn’t a problem for us because we’re both under 6ftDefinitely recommended for people who are into the history of the area

Mara Cressey

My partner and I just returned from a trip up into the Northeast and stayed at The Daniels House during our time in Salem It was absolutely amazing! We stayed in the Marion Room, a cozy and spacious room on the third floor Like many people have mentioned, the ceilings are low, and my partner being tall he risked bumping his head whenever he stood up; we decided this added to the experience and was a small price to pay for staying in America’s oldest bed and breakfast!! (For reference, my partner is 6’2” and his head touched the ceiling; I’m 5’9” and I could fully stand up with a few inches room)

Our hosts were communicative and kind and Vijay, the tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming We received breakfast vouchers for Red’s Sandwich shop, a breakfast/lunch restaurant easily within walking distance, due to Covid We can’t wait to come back, thank you for a wonderful stay!

Dara Ziembicki

What a great hotel, perfect walking distance to everything we wanted to see Our room was spacious and clean, yes it had a tiny bathroom, but really why complain how much time do you really spend in it

The Hotel was beautiful, old world with modern amenities We had dinner in The Tavern, great food and drinks The front Desk staff was very helpful in directing us to a few coffee shops We are looking forward to our next visit

Kari Cousineau

Highly recommend this hotel I’ve never been to a place like this At first I thought my room was small (I think they called it economy), but I loved it! Little pricey, but no complaints

I would definitely stay here again Tyler at the front desk, as well as his staff, were top notch They helped us with recommendations and getting places They would remember us the next day and ask how things were with the recommendations Nathaniel’s Restaurant wasn’t 100% on service on one of the two days, but I’d be back Hotel was wonderful! Tip: Call even if it doesn’t show availability They may have some


Really nice time at this hotel Room was spotlessly clean and well kept A quite old hotel so bathrooms very very small

Bedding was extremely nice Large cut out at bottom of bathroom door curious Can’t find any reason on Google why one is needed???? Weird Still, we’d stay here again 3 stars only because no hot water pot / coffee, tea service in the room Plenty of room for that if they cared

Tammy Homa

This place is so peaceful Absolutely Beautiful! The staff is as amazing as the raspberry filled cookies they offer you when you check in The rooms are a decent size and very clean

My husband and I look forward to coming back every year I suggest booking early because the rooms book up quickly We always stay in a top floor king room and you have a sitting area outside your room over looking the ocean If you like the sound of the ocean, you can leave your door open a crack (leaving the screen door shut) and listen all night There’s no smoking on your deck, but they offer a bench in the parking lot to smoke They also have a really nice cafe open from 7:30-11:00 daily The food is breakfast only but really good food Home made corned beef hash We Highly Suggest booking hereTammy and Dan H

Kim Rodrigues

The room was clean, the service was fantastic and the view was beautiful! We loved being able to sit on our balcony or go for a walk along the coast The hotel is conveniently located close to town and Good Harbour BeachKevin at the front desk was very helpful and friendly

He even went out of his way along with Steve (the maintenance guy) to assist my husband with charging his car This was a huge plus for us after having driven all the way from Toronto The homemade cookies at the front were delicious The room itself could use a bit of a refresh That being said, I’d recommend this hotel and definitely would stay here again

Jessica Gaudette

As someone who travels often near and far, I can promise you those who complained in these reviews are generally unhappy people who havent learnt to appreciate the gift of visiting a new destinationThe rooms: clean & great for the location and price the view 😍, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms weren’t the largest but who travels to sit in the bathroom?! they had two large mirrors to get ready in front of

the rugs are not my taste but for two nights, its not ruining my tripThe hotel: it’s location couldn’t be more perfect you feel away from it all but its 10 min or less to all shops, stores and sights the pool is sparkling clean and the grounds are lovelyThe staff: WONDERFUL! So helpful, friendly and welcoming the breakfast was great, some might complain that it’s expensive and service is slow but isn’t everywhere? I can’t say enough great things about the team at Atlantic

Brittany Cutter

Maybe my expectations are too high since covid but the cleanliness was just not there for me On a 1-10 for cleanliness the room gets a 0 There was hair in our sink, hair in our shower and worst of ALL hair in our bed (so so gross) and what appeared to be male public hair

I’m fully convinced this room wasn’t even cleaned prior to check-in We paid $250/night and at the LEAST we could have a clean room The hotel is pet friendly & our floor was FILLED with dog hair The hook to hang our shower towels was broken, no desk/chair in the room so no place to sit other than the bed Glad we didn’t throw our towels on the floor because no one came to clean our room during our stay The gym was fully equipped & clean (reason for 2 stars and not 1) Most definitely will NOT stay there again and if you care about cleanliness, find another place to stay

Brenden Kruger

The property is nice, clean, and the staff was friendly Based on older pictures the renovations seem to have been extensive and refreshed the rooms and common areas The area the hotel is in is nice, but there didn’t seem to be much to do in the immediate area

Most things were a 10 minute drive away at leastI booked the hotel because of the pictures of the pool area and fire pit Unfortunately we found the hot tub had been removed It seems to have been taken off the website, but Google and third party booking sites still show it (plus their Facebook still has it listed in the business description) Like most hotels the quality in breakfast was disappointing which seems to be a COVID thing

Lia López

I’m mainly writing this because I saw some reviews in the past saying that the breakfast is only coffee and bread I would like to correct this: the breakfast, which is included in the price, is tea and coffee with toast, peanut butter and jelly, of which you can have as much as you want Maybe it’s not a big difference for some people, but I don’t think saying just coffee and bread is fair

Apart from that, the staff are amazing, kind and helpful The rooms have heir own bathroom with shower, very clean There is also a fridge, lockers and enough sockets (contrary to what it said in a past review) Maybe this changed after the renovation

Alessandro Medici

**** this place Rudest service I’ve ever experienced, EVEREdit in response to owners comment: I sure did not stay there

I tried to, but the interaction with the receptionist left me speechless Will not return Good luck, Backpackers 🙏✌️

Gorgeous rooms with a sophisticated and homey feel One of the best experiences I’ve had staying at a hotel My room was incredibly clean, had everything I needed, and the beds are so comfortable! The whole place is so uniquely decorated – I was blown away by the attention to detail

I will definitely be making another visit soon and I would highly recommend anyone to stay here!

Iris Mama

Absolutely beautiful place to stay with a lovely proprietess Everything about the Couch House in is beautiful Very nice little continental breakfast brought right to your door

Four stars instead of five because I feel some modern updates could be made without interfering with the historic integrity Such as the light switch being inside the room where the light is, stand alone air conditioner for the rooms, expanding the main floor bathroom so someone over a size 8 can actually take a shower

Michaela S

The king room was clean and comfortable The decor is fun and modern The staff was friendly and attentive

The location is very convenient, right on Essex street within walking distance of the museums and many restaurants It was perfect for stopping to use the bathroom during the day, dropping leftovers off, and they have stations for filling your water bottle up The price was amazing for the location

Alfred Sampang

The Hotel Salem was an okay experience I would NOT recommend the Micro King We underestimated how small it would be and feel

It also wasn’t the cleanest Probably not terrible on hotel standards, but I think the room being so small, it was harder to clean and you felt closer to the dirty corners the cleaning crew clearly couldn’t reach Still, we did find an empty, dusty cup under our bed and the floors weren’t really well-mopped, which kind of gave us ideas of how dirty the bedding probably was, considering how hard it would be to make a bed which was touching the wall on 3 of 4 sidesIt would’ve been 3 stars, but the location itself and everything else about the hotel was great The front desk staff was friendly and helpful Very smooth check-in/check-outThe hotel was nice enough to hold our bags the last day after check out, so we could roam the area a bit more until we had to leave for our flights The location is absolutely prime for Salem, being right in the middle of several fantastic Salem places to see!

Holly Rousseau

Beautiful hotel! MCM decor was such a pleasant surprise From the lobby to the room to the roof top bar, beautiful! The two front desk ladies were so pleasant and helpful! The staff at the roof top bar were awesome as well Genuinely, no issues

The location is in the heart of Salem Our room was so clean, beautiful, updated and comfortable Highly recommend

Nat Duranceau

I absolutely love the Best Western plus! I love that they have their own little location tucked away on the hill The rooms are HUGE and modern The staff is amazing- they’ve gone above and beyond for me and you can definitely tell that there’s a family feel with their regular guests

The lobby is bright, well lit and welcoming even late at night and there’s always luggage carts I will say however that I unfortunately don’t find their beds to be as comfortable as other places But it’s a lovely quiet location Definitely will stay here in the future and recommend to others

Daniel Reichard

I don’t know why any hotels other than best westerns exist Every time we stay at one it just really highlights everything I don’t like about other hotels This one had very friendly service

The rooms were perfectly clean and smelled fantastic Excellent little weight room The pool was large, perfect temperature and deep enough that 6 ft me could tread water! The breakfast was so delicious and had plenty to choose from Several restaurants deliver here as well Loved it here

Monique Ferrecchia

Stayed here for a wedding, but probably wouldn’t otherwiseCons: The room had a strong musty odor; we checked and cleaned the ac filter – it looked like a dryer lint filter that had never been emptied 🤮 Overall the room looked dingy and slightly dated

The duvet inserts aren’t even in real covers, just between 2 flat sheets Slept on top of the uppermost sheet to minimize my contact with the bed The shower looked like it could use a good scrub, but may have just been older Water pressure is severely lacking, ended up having to wash my hair under the tub spout instead of the shower head to get sufficiently clean No towels available at the pool, we had to bring some down from our room Either the toilet or fridge kept us up with a loud noisePros: Pretty good location, close to food, attractions, and the beach Friendly staff The pool is nice, and seemed well kept, good temperature to really enjoy your swim Good sized room, with a table & chairs, closet, dresser, tv, coffeemaker, mini fridge, and microwave The included breakfast was pretty good Food was hot and they had a decent variety

The Hotel is well insulated, it felt like we were the only guests Pool is warm for the cold winter and food in The Regatta pub was great Within walking distance to other great restaurants and all that Salem has to offer Highly recommend!

Kris Howes

Really enjoyed this hotel The price was good, the staff was all very accommodating, and the bar was good too The room did not have a fridge but they were quick to get us one for a small upcharge

The room was very very clean and kept well Quiet too The beds we’re comfy, the shower was good, and my lady loved the bathroom setup to accommodate makeup and getting ready for the day The hotel is in a perfect location for exploring downtown Salem, it’s right in the middle ofeverything Close to shops, bars, and tourist attractions With a large truck, the outside parking lot was great to have a spacious for parking Sorry I didn’t snap any pics of the room

Christopher Stefaniak

Great location and clean but rooms could use some updates and maintenance Nothing bad enough to ruin our stay or attempt to have addressed, but enough to make it feel like the value for the money was not there Hot water was so-so, bathroom sink drain barely opened, and air-conditioning was pretty old but working okay in our room

I would expect more for $300/night but you really pay for the central location which is very nice Beer garden next door was a great spot Service at the restaurant was slow but the food was good and reasonably priced Would return again if they did some renovations but otherwise might try another local hotel if we returned to the area

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

Casie Kellogg

Awesome! We stayed in the “Haunted” Room# 17 and it was amazing! From the Staff to the Building and the Town, this was probably my most favorite vacation ever! The Inn is pretty much in walking distance from everything except maybe Winter Island, everything else is easy to get to from here Staff was super nice, the Inn was super clean and they even had a bag of cotton balls & Q-tips in the bathroom for ya, like who does that!! 🙂 What an amazing town, I highly recommend Salam and the Salem Inn while your here We will be back!!PS, the room wasn’t that haunted 😉

Joshua Snow

This place is amazing The room was so small, but perfect for what we needed and my son loved the loft Everything was great from the check in with the electronic key on our phone to the bathroom fixtures, bed, towels

you name it I’m kind of hoping my son goes to school up here so we can stay every time we visit for the next four years We didn’t need service so I really can’t rate that

Annie Jordan-Hill

My husband and I stayed here in September for the first leg of our honeymoon adventure around New England Sweet little hotel, very clean, nice staff, great location in downtown Beverly We flew in to Boston on a red eye, and we were absolutely wrecked when we got to the hotel

It was raining, so we couldn’t really walk around Salem or Beverly much, so we camped out in the car until our room was ready at noon (we asked for early check in) Because it was our honeymoon, we sprung for champagne and chocolates, and what a treat those were There were even roses and rose petals on the bedIf I had to find the negatives the rooms are teeny wee Definitely forces you to be organized with your belongings I really wish there was a real bathroom door, or even a barn door to provide more privacy for those less than romantic moments There is a common restroom, but still Also, our room was at the very end of the hall next to the staff entrance/ exit The door was loud really loud Like, woke-us-up-from-a-dead-sleep loud, even with the white noise machine on highThere is a sitting/ TV/ coffee/ water area with a communal fridge For some, that might be a turn off? We happened to like itOverall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if we find ourselves in the Beverly/ Salem area

Brittany Legath

I cannot say enough amazing things about this place!It’s a beautiful old building with super minimal and modernized roomsThe local soaps and shampoos were a treat! And the complimentary treats were also a nice treat!It’s not a massive amount of space, but honestly you don’t need it! It was laid out nicely, and perfect for two people for a night The neighborhood and nearby shops and cafés were lovely, and it’s a short drive from Salem

Honestly, I wish we could have stayed here to enjoy it for a second night!

Room was spacious with working fireplace and plenty of outlets to charge devices Lounge and communal kitchen (stocked with snacks and coffee/tea etc was a wonderful addition – no need to stay in your room to have your morning coffee! If you are in Salem this is the place to stay

This place is beautiful! I’m excited to get to see if I’m awakened by some groovy spirits! Maybe they wanna party! This may be a stay I will not soon forget! The location is amazing, the staff are very friendly! The amenities are delicious!! The rooms are very adorable! We stayed in room 9, the bathroom floor is heated and there is a wonderfully warm fireplace in the bedroom! I’m excited to come back again and stay in another room!!

Location is amazing, room is nice, quaint Loved having the gas fireplace Wood plank flooring

Shower and bathroom although small are very nice and new Fantastic water pressure Robes provided Very comfortable bed, very clean linens Very clean room Kudos to the cleaning staff! Amazing shared lounging areas and area with variety of snacks, espresso machine, teas, beverages, fresh breakfast pastries, refrigerator for guest itemsCentral air and heat worked silently and efficiently We were on the main floor in room 1 We requested the first floor as there is no elevator and one of us doesn’t navigate stairs Loved our stay and we would definitely book again 1 star off for the following reasons: Could use a little updating The rug in our room was beige and had some noticeable stains The throw over the bed is knit and coming apart Picky-but the drapes, lamps, tables don’t really go with the room-more of a modern vibe There’s and armoire but there isn’t a way to hand a long/formal dress anywhere (other than the bathroom) that I could find There was an iron but no ironing board (maybe in the shared areas?) There’s no place in the bathroom to put any toiletries or other stuff down other than the toilet tank (not a fan of that personally) Bathroom is small but a corner table would fit for toiletries, etc The outside step in the back is really high-needs either a second step up/down or a railing You jump up/off the step about 15-17 inches The most concerning thing was that when we made our reservation (we let them know we were arriving after hours) we received the outside entrance code but never received the information about what room and where to find the key We called the number we were given but no one ever answered (It was still early evening-9 pm) Fortunately, we kept hunting and finally found an envelope with one of our first names with a key for room 1 We almost gave up and went looking for somewhere else to stay Despite all that, we loved staying here and would definitely stay here again

We stayed at this location, for one night, in May of 2022 We arrived late in the evening One of the elevators was down, and according to reviews, that I read after my stay, has been down for months

The one working elevator was pretty dirty upon entering When we entered our room, we gave it a quick once over The room looked more like a truck stop motel than a Marriott The room was small The beds were full size Definitely not the standard queen One of the beds had a large clump of hair in it, so we called for new sheets The sofa bed had a huge stain on it and an even larger stain on the rug I was afraid to even take my shoes off in this place The inner shower curtain should have been changed When I called with a complaint and ask for a refund of the over $300 I spent, I was offered Marriott points I did not pay in points I paid on my bank card Since asking for my money back, I have not heard back from hotel management or anyone else from Marriott It’s been at least 9 days I’ve been a lifelong Marriott guest Shameful to call this place a Marriott and shameful that they haven’t given me a refund Also shameful of the latest customer service rep to repeatedly say “Well there’s nothing I can do on my end” Not a Marriott type of experience at all

Rachel Malpass

Upon arrival, we were notified that they did not offer daily housekeeping, but we could ask if we needed something The thermostat in our room was locked, and kept set to 68 degrees (This doesn’t sound unreasonable, but it never felt that cool…it was actually quite stuffy

) The mini fridge in our room froze drinks solid, and the remote did not work properly After three days, we requested housekeeping for towels, coffee, and trash No one came After one day, our room cards stopped working and we were informed that it was because we had likely placed the card too close to an electronic device When calling the front desk, they told me they’d have some new ones ready down stairs It took approximately 15 minutes to retrieve those cards because we were on the fifth floor and the line for the one working elevator was long Overall, nothing special Would not choose this location again unless remodeled

Carl Manzelli

Upon arrival after the posted check in time, the clerk had us wait for several minutes while they tried to find a room available for which a reservation was set months earlier I was then told that they had only one room available despite no one else waiting anywhere They finally found a room

The room was clean but the hotel showed signs of wear with only one elevator working Overall, it was okay but I expect better

We were very pleased with this hotel! Our room was very clean, staff was friendly, and the location was good Breakfast was well done There are only 2 things I would have improved – 1: the water pressure wasn’t great in the shower

2: the electric lock didn’t work great with the key cards Our work around was using the digital key via the app We’d definitely stay here again!

Kathleen Dacey

We’ve stayed at the hotel a couple of times for friend’s weddings and it’s always clean There’s plenty of parking and the complimentary breakfast has waffles I used the gym this last trip and it was small, but had everything I wanted

The TVs are a bit dated, but they work There was a fridge and a good sized bathroom The staff are friendly It’s in a weird location (but handy for wedding bus situations), but the pizza place next door has a full bar and good vibes

Louie Melissis

We chose this hotel based on location to get to the different places we wanted to visit while staying in the Boston area Staff was very attentive to make sure things were the way we wanted them The breakfast included was good

Rooms were cozy and the bed was comfortable The pillows were too soft and needed a third to help my sleep It isn’t a high end place but for what we needed it was perfect and would stay here again

We stayed at the Ocean House hotel for our wedding We were getting married right next door and this was the perfect location to stay The staff was so nice and friendly

We needed a few items throughout the day while getting ready for the wedding and the staff was so nice and helpful whenever asked We worked closely with a young girl and gentlemen that gave us exceptional hospitality We would highly recommend staying here! The views are breathtaking especially from their roof deck!

Christopher Dee

Everything was what I would expectThe pool is awesome,view,and people were coolI will come back here again don’t forget the suntan lotion

I love the ocean and Gloucester So this is a great spot And the rooms face the ocean which is why I came here The Beaufort is beautiful but this is just as niceThis place came up when we were searching for places to go

Cathy Doucette

I have been coming here for 25 years with my daughters Unfortunately, we have witnessed this establishment decline in recent years It has the best location, view and other amenities

This year was the worst Room still not ready at 4 o’clock Pool was disgusting for 2 days – filter not working(?) Garbage not collected in our rooms, on the grounds, or in breakfast area Breakfast – lack of supply – don’t want to wait for 20 minutes to get coffee in the morning, and wipe your own tables down Had to go to front desk to get toilet paper Overall, I would say they are severely understaffed When I pay for a room with this price point, I expect more Sorry Bass Rocks, this is the end for us

I am a travel nurse and stayed here for an assignment at a nearby hospital The staff is wonderful! I cannot say enough good things about their customer service Hot breakfast is included, breakfast area is large and very nice

Just steps away from downtown, many restaurants, bars, Salem Witch trials museums/events and a Starbucks right outside the hotel main entrance I would definitely stay here again

brent renius

Very nice for a Hampton inn Brand new hotel and they seem to have it down better than hotels that have been around for 20 years Friendly people starting at the valet to the front desk and maids we passed on the way out the next day

Highly recommend staying here if you are in the Salem area Prices are reasonable and it’s an excellent location to see everything, we parked the car and walked everywhere Plenty of restaurants, bars, breweries and the museums within 5-15 minutes walk of the hotel Would not hesitate to stay again

Ben Symes

Great location, friendly, welcoming, and helpful staff, and the rooms + the entirety of the hotel have a very modern, yet comfortable feel My family and I have stayed here twice, and will no doubt stay again the next time we are traveling to Salem Plus, it doesn’t hurt that there are multiple coffee shops just steps away from the hotel entrance

Highly recommend for budget-conscious individuals or families who are looking to travel to Salem!

Jim and Nancy are amazing hosts and the home is so beautiful and comfortable Breakfast every morning was fantastic The coffee is excellent!The house is walking distance to all the Salem attractions including the Witch museum, the Peabody Essex museum, the wharf area, Chestnut street, and the train station

Vincent Cheng

Truly a marvelous find The owners Nancy and Jim were so welcoming and sweet It was like going over to your aunt and uncle’s house

The location was perfect; easily walkable to all the popular sites of Salem The house was beautiful and the room was very comforting The decor was traditional but with a modern twist The best part was the breakfast that Nancy and Jim personally makes for you every morning Everything was fresh and delicious We went in the off season so booking was really easy Jim said if going in the fall, especially October, need to book several months or even a year in advance All in all highly highly recommend!!


Amazing b&b We were visiting from Wyoming and stayed 4 nights Place was very clean and we felt more like they were extended relatives than the b&b owners

Breakfast was delicious, something great every morning We also loved meeting Tyson, the dog! Very nice place, super close to everything – like a couple blocks away We’ll definitely be back!

Girish Nimbekai

Good hotel Clean facility Rooms are of extremely small size compared to 100s of Holiday Inn Express that I have stayed in the past (I would say one of THE SMALLEST)

There is hardly any additional breathing room Also, the bathroom does not even have an inch of additional space to move around (one of the tiny-est, I have ever seen in a HIE Hotel) Definitely felt too claustrophobic Also, the title (Logan Airport) is very misleading It is roughly 14 miles (and about 30+ minutes away) from Logan Airport I very much felt this was very deceptive in how it is advertised If I have choice, I will certainly pick to better hotel Highway noise is very much a disturbing factor

This hotel was charming! Each of the rooms was uniquely decorated Every morning, a different light breakfast was offered, with a selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea and a pastry item You could eat in the bright dining area or choose from several outdoor settings

Every time we entered or left the building we were warmly greeted Located near walking/ running trails, a short walk to the beach, and only minutes from downtownIf you want the warmth of a B&B, but the privacy of a boutique hotel, you’ll love it here The hotel manager and staff go out of their way to make you feel like a special guest

Heather Temple

I would recommend The Hotel Marblehead to anyone! The room was clean and neat The bathroom was generous size, excellent hot water There was a patio off the room that was wonderful to relax on

Customer service was phenomenal! Breakfast was something different every day and always tasty The Marblehead community was great as well, super friendly place all the way around! I definitely want to return for another visit and stay here!

October Dow

This is worth every penny Eliana and Devora made sure we were very happy We arrived after hours and they left the key, all very easy

This is an old home from the 1800s The decor is new and nautical The rooms are fresh and clean I have not slept this well in weeks, beds are amazing Coffee and simple breakfast were tasty Room 8 is a suite with a pull out sofa 10 minutes from Salem A motivated person could bike there The ladies can point you in the right direction with ideas of what to do You will not be disappointed!

Was lucky enough to book a last minute trip to the Stepping Stone Inn with my fiance and our golden retriever The location is unbeatable for people with or without pets We so enjoyed walking the Common every morning and evening

Walking distance to all the major sites in Salem The free parking is a huge plus! We only met Matt and Kelly briefly a few times but you can tell they are kind, lovely people who take a lot of pride in what they do and it certainly shows! Would absolutely recommend and it will be our top choice when returning to Salem

Rebecca W. O’Connor

As much as I want this to remain a hidden gem so that I can book there anytime, I’d be remiss not to sing the praises of both this Inn and its warm, caring ownersMatt and Kelly go above and beyond to make each and every guest feel important, seen and cared for The Inn could not be better located – it’s in the heart of Salem within walking distance to shops, museums, restaurants, and the beautiful waterfront

When we arrived, the scent of Kelly’s blooming garden greeted us and the Inn was filled with sunshine The kitties were an added bonus, as they greet you to snuggle and welcome you to their home The reviews aren’t lying when they say that Matt brews a killah cuppa and if you arrive ambivalent about plans, rest assured you’ll get stellar advice to help shape your days and maximize your time in SalemWe stayed in the Washington DC room, which was perfect for us given the big, super comfortable bed that accommodated my very tall husband Even in 100+ degree weather, we were cool and comfortable all night and felt like we were sleeping in a homeIn sum, can’t recommend this Inn strongly enough We will be back!!

Sara Fildes

We LOVED our stay at Stepping Stone Inn!!! It’s in such a perfect location we didn’t have to drive at all during our stay, everything is within easy walking distance Our room was comfortable and clean, and bigger than I expected Though the best feature of the inn is Matt and Kelly, who are so warm, welcoming, and accommodating – Matt even reached out to us ahead of time to offer an early check-in

They’re also full of great recommendations on activities and food in Salem and beyond If we’re ever back in the area we’ll definitely stay at Stepping Stone again
