Parking was the only problem. The night I arrived, there was absolutely no parking on the street or the lot I was directed to. This was a problem for me because I am handicapped and can not walk for long periods of time. I had to keep circling around town until I found a space, many blocks away.

Excellent rooms and great breakfast with Deanne and her daughter in the mornings! The room was comfortable and quiet for our family of five. You can easily walk to almost all Salem has to offer! Can't wait to come back.

Comfortable historic hotel

Pros: The historic charm, and also the complementary breakfast. The staff made us feel welcome.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: Located in the historic area, and most sites of interest are within waking distance: Ropes mansion, The Witch House, Essex Street, museums, etc.
We enjoyed our stay with The Salem Inn very much. Our room was on the third floor, and was spacious and comfortable - it includes a claw foot tub, coffee maker, and iron. There is no elevator since it's a historic building, so you must haul you luggage up the steps, but we didn't mind that at all. Our room was in the Curwen House on Essex Street, close to all of the sites of interest, with the Ropes Mansion right across the street, and the Witch House at the end of the block. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and would reserve at The Salem Inn again.

Needs some TLC. Door locks were very difficult to lock. Room could have been a lot better decorated for the price. It was clean and great location

Historic building, but few comforts

Pros: The location was good for tourist attractions. They made fresh omelets for breakfast.
Cons: I don't suppose it's possible to put in elevators in these old buildings, but it would have been nice. A refrigerator in the room could be added.
Location: There are plenty of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The witch museum and tourist area are a few miles away.
We stayed at six motels on our New England trip, and all were overpriced and only fair for comfort. This hotel was no exception. I did appreciate the historical significance of the building we stayed in. Our building, the Curwen House, was built in 1886. But keep in mind that there are no elevators, and we were put on the third floor. Since we are seniors, this was difficult for us. The rooms were made pretty comfortable, but because the rooms were not designed for motel rooms, it was oddly shaped. The TV had cable, but was off to the side so couldn't be watched well from bed. The bathroom had no place to put your things. But the neighborhood was nice, and the free breakfast was much better than usual. However, you did need to walk to a different building to have it. They provided free cheese and wine at 4pm, but we did not partake so can't say how good it was. The beds were fairly comfortable. The price of this room was very high for what you got, but there didn't seem to be many options in Salem, so they can get it.

It's part of a duplex down the street from the actual inn. It did have an outside entrance door right in the room and a door that lead into a common living room. There is no staff on site. The room was smaller than it looks online. Big nice bathroom. And a delicious night cap port is left out in the common area for guests. in the morning the power kept tripping on and off. Over all it was a decent place.

We stayed in the West House and it was absolutely gorgeous outside and in. When I booked the family suite on the 4th floor someone was nice enough to call and let me know there were no elevators which I appreciated. The stairs are VERY steep and the railing isn't very sturdy which made the trips up and down quite an experience but with the age of the location it's expected. The family suite felt like I was visiting an elderly relatives home but it was very clean, warm, and open and we enjoyed it very much. Check in and check out took about 10 minutes total and was wonderful. Over all I'd love to stay again just maybe not up on the top floor.

Pros: location and breakfast
Cons: The rooms could be updated and things like a gouge in the wall fixed. A little pricey.
Location: very near witch house and downtown.
The hotel was in a convenient location to walk around Salem. It was comfortable but a bit shabby. The continental breakfast was very substantial and was run by a very personable lady.

So, Salem inn actually comprises three homes, west house, where we checked in, curwen house, where we stayed and peabody house. Breakfast is offered at west house. Though it's not part of our room, I like the living room in the curwen house so much! Just as showed on the picture. Breakfast was good and room was good too!
