Loved this Inn!


We loved this property, it's choice of accommodations and it's location. We were able to walk everywhere. Once we parked the car (plenty of parking available), we didn't use it again until the day we left. We chose a family room that had a bedroom and then sitting room with two single beds with trundles. Room 18 in the main house. The room was pretty comfortable since we were not in it much. There is not really a "living room" or "sitting area" except for the beds which are set up as daybeds. It worked fine for us and our needs for this trip. I would probably choose to try a different room if we were staying longer. This trip was 2 nights - 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The staff is very friendly. There was a new gal in the breakfast room who had just started working at the Inn. She was absolutely lovely and her omelettes were great! The full breakfast in the morning is a great perk of staying at the Inn! We will definitely return to the Salem Inn - the only "issue" that we had was that we did not receive housekeeping service on our second day. The first day, we did not leave a "service please" sign on our doorknob, but received housekeeping. The next day, we did the same thing and did not receive housekeeping. Our advice would be to put the "service please" sign on your door to make sure to receive housekeeping! Otherwise, great stay and lovely accommodations in a neat town to visit!

Great stay

Deanne just made me a wonderful omelette! Our stay came with a wonderful breakfast and also wine and cheese for night before. We had a wonderful stay at the Salem Inn and a beautiful large room on the top floor of the main inn. I would recommend the Salem in to anyone who comes to Salem!
