    Our room was wonderfully decorated and spacious. The decor is unique and so modern. The bedding was such good quality and a pleasure to sleep in. The hotel was incredibly clean! Would absolutely turn. If I had to say one negative there is nowhere to put your toiletries a tray underneath the sink doesn’t really help when you are tying to get ready. But it would not stop me returning to this beautifully unique hotel.

    Very nice property. The room we stayed in had a day bed for an extra person. However the room didn't seem as large or nice as the main rooms and was slightly more expensive due to allowing 3 people. But it was a very nice Inn and we would stay again!!

    The house, property, and rooms are great! I was not at all aware that the hotel is considered one of the most haunted locations in Salem. I was in room #6 for 5 minutes in broad daylight when I started freezing...chills all over my back, arms, and the hair on my arms sticking straight up...I absolutely could not get warm. The heat and fireplace work great, but my husband was burning g up..we almost left to go stay somewhere else because we were freaked out...I felt sad and drained..stayed up all night with the lights on..

    Clean, quirky, and comfy. Complimentary stuff was a lifesaver. Heated bathroom floors were nice but took a long long time to warm up. AC only goes as low as 67, but it was comfortable. Information and help super available and clear.
