Recent reviews

Superb 9.0 From 635 reviews

Fair 4.0
Poor accommodation.
The so-called "Alphonsa Boutique Style" room for two adults turned out to be a sub standard single room. Hotel manager arranged for transfer to their adjacent guest house which was not a lot better - e.g. very old and tired accommodation with ancient separate toilet and shower in which you could hardly turn. Only saving grace for this hotel is the good dining room.

Good stopover on way to Vermont
Booked as an overnight stay on way to Stowe Vermont and for a brief tour of area. Good location by Salem common. Arrived late in the evening and used room service for snack and refreshments good quality and friendly service. Very comfortable plenty of free parking and all staff very helpful. Would recommend the omelettes at breakfast.

Poor 2.0
Room 323 was really small and noisy due to AC units outside window. Shower was ridiculously small, so small you have difficulty turning round in it and have to get out to dry yourself!

Great stay!
I spent two days at the Hawthorne Hotel. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The hotel is charming and very clean. The food in the restaurant was good. The hotel is in the perfect location for exploring Salem.

Very good 8.0
please fix!!
Everything was great except the sewer smell that permeated the lobby and restaurant. The bad smell was very strong and made me question the cleanliness of the hotel. On the positive side our room was cozy and the bed was super comfortable. And the clam chowder in the restaurant was fantastic! My husband and I are moving to Salem and would consider the hotel for out of town guest but the smell needs to be fixed!!

Charming Hotel
The Hawthorne Hotel was great! It’s right in the center of everything. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are a little small, but that is because it’s in an old, restored building. It’s a quaint and charming hotel. We would definitely stay there again.
