We stayed at this hotel when we traveled to see Salem, Gloucester, and Marble Head.
It's average as hotels go. The room was clean, which is always a priority with me, so that was a PLUS. Maybe it's a new thing with hotels, but again there was only a sheet on the bed, and the bedspread (which we always pull down). The blanket is in the closet, and you have to put it on the bed yourself if you need it. I am allergic to down, so when we checked in, I did ask that they replace the down pillows with something else. They were very quick about the substitutions, and even called a little while later to check to see if everything was ok with the room. That was a Nice Touch! Our room did have a refrigerator and microwave, but the room looked dated and smelled musty. The free breakfast was ok, but be sure you get there early, because if you arrive close to the 10:00 am close, you won't have much to choose from. Since so much of their food contained dairy ( even the scrambled eggs), the food that was included in the free breakfast was nothing that I could eat. If you are a vegan, lactose intolerant, or allergic to milk, you would be limited to a bagel or English muffin. They did have dry cereal choices, but only dairy milk to put on it.
The bathroom was comfortably large, but it did not have a fan or vent so steam really builds up in the room.
We needed a bottle opener for beverages that we purchased in Salem, and when we walked down to the front desk to ask for one, we were told they only had one and someone else was using it at the time. How does a hotel only have one bottle opener??? The hotel is located on a street that requires you to drive out of your way to circle around to get to that side of the street. However, the area is well lit, and the hotel is very close to highway access.
So, the hotel was ok, but I would most likely look for a different location next time, and perhaps find one with fresher rooms and better food.
