“Wonderful Memorial Day weekend”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We really enjoyed this inn. Came up for the holiday weekend and brought family along we had two separate suites, both suites were very roomy and had separate bedrooms and little kitchenettes.

The rooms are very nicely furnished and have high ceilings which made them feel more spacious too.

Continental breakfast -it was really a very nice assortment of food fresh Fruits and breads, muffins, bagels.

very easy walk into town.

The entire staff is very friendly and accommodating we loved our stay and will come back.

We travel often and would definitely stay in Marblehead instead of Salem if you're debating between the two it's a much prettier town and great restaurants.

We stayed over Memorial day weekend, and although the first part was a wash out, we had a nice stay at the Inn. Rooms are comfortable, the place is very charming, breakfast is excellent and Karlene and John are the consumate hosts.

The folks at the Marblehead Inn were very welcoming during a difficult trip for us attending a family funeral. Our plans were up in the air from day to day and they adapted to whatever came up. The continental breakfast spread was very inviting, and watching the birds out the window at the breakfast table was relaxing and peaceful. The rooms are lovely, like they should be in an old, well-loved house, but with all the amenities of a good hotel, including wi-fi, TV and a kitchenette. Be aware that seniors with mobility issues might have some trouble with the stairs to the second and third floors and the deep bathtubs--they were perfect for everyone except our 90-year old grandmother who could not step into the tub. Also, a plus--easy parking!

Thank you, Beth. We're sorry for the circumstances that brought you and your family here, but we're glad that we were able to help during this difficult time and happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
Perhaps your grandmother will come to the inn again, and if she does, we do have 2 rooms on the 1st floor that have showers with a low entry instead of tubs.
We hope to see you all again for a happier occasion.

I've said it before (in a review following our stay there last year) and I'll say it again (following our second stay there last weekend): If you're looking for a charming, convenient, comfortable, clean, and efficiently run B&B in this historic Massachusetts village, you need look no further than the Marblehead Inn. Innkeepers Karlene and John are the very model of what proprietors should be -- friendly, gracious, obliging, knowledgeable, and utterly dedicated to making your time there a happy and memorable experience. They set a fine continental breakfast table, too. We'll be back for more, for sure!

We had the great experience of staying at the Marblehead Inn in May. We weren't expecting too much since it was a random internet choice. We were very surprised. The inn keepers were great with lots of local knowledge and were a great help. I liked the rooms because of their great atmosphere. They were what I thought an inn should be. Close to Salem and a 'T' ride away from downtown Boston it can't be beat.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a GPS if you are driving anywhere

We were in town for a wedding in Marblehead, and the Marblehead Inn was a perfect place for us to stay for the weekend. The Inn was affordable, clean, centrally located, and the staff was kind and welcoming. There is a lobby/dining room area that was comfortable to sit in with our friends who were also staying at the Inn and we were able to enjoy some beer/wine and complimentary snacks. I would definitely recommend the Marblehead Inn!

Marblehead Inn ... gotta try it out!

I had the opportunity to stay at the Marblehead Inn for 4 months due to a relocation to the Boston area. John and Karlene made the process of settling in very easy, were also available and willing to assist as needed and always ensured that my stay was a positive one. Inn also has a nice breakfast, wireless internet access and easy in/out parking.

During my time at the Inn I had the opportunity to see guests come and go for their visits. John and Karlene were always focused on making each stay special and memoriable while guests were at the Inn. Also during my time John and Karlene made on-going enhancements to the Inn ... from opening up the kitchen to making adjustments to the rooms to ensure good stays, they were on it and attentive.

Now that I've left the Inn, I look forward to having friends and family stay during their visits to Marblehead!
