“Definitely *the* Place to Stay in Salem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

We just spent two nights at the 'Morning Glory' Bed & Breakfast and can't praise it - and owner Bob - enough!

To start, Bob kindly picked us up from the BHC Ferry - which was great as we had heavy luggage.

The B&B is conveniently located next to the House of Seven Cables - the perfect location to start your Salem trip/tour. You can also jump on the Salem Trolley from this location, which takes you all around the town.

The town center/old quarter is just a few minutes walk from the B&B, so you definitely do not need a car while staying here. Salem's must-see sights are all on your door step.

The B&B itself is beautiful - lovingly restored and renovated, and full of New England charm. You really couldn't ask for more.

While full of olde charm, the rooms have all modern conveniences and were very comfortable.

We will definitely visit the 'Morning Glory' again, and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Salem.

Thank you Bob.

David & Paul

"Morning Glory" was our first experience staying at a bed and breakfast. Let me say first my husband is a hard man to please. He likes staying in first class hotels with all the amenities. Convincing him to stay at a B and B was like pulling teeth. So when I finally convinced him, I was in heaven. Morning Glory does not let you down!!! It is amazing how beautiful and sincere Bob is with his guests. I loved everything about our stay and my husband is a true believer. 5 star all the way! We can't wait to return to the wonderful town of Salem and visit Bob and Morning Glory B and B again.

What can I say? I have now stayed at The Morning Glory during FOUR visits to Salem, Massachusetts, and have already made my reservation for number FIVE! It is a remarkable place, and my only regret is having to leave it. I have stayed in nearly every room, and each is delightful and charming in its own way. All are spotless, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. I always anticipate the delicious breakfast foods and enjoy the company of fascinating people, many of whom are fellow "returnees." Bob, the owner, is obviously in the midst of his labor of love, and I feel nothing but gratitude that I am blessed with the opportunity to be a part of that experience, albeit much too briefly. Try it for yourself; once you walk in the door and inhale the delightful aroma, you'll know that you have landed in the right spot!

Bob Shea Made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. It was like coming home to Grandmas house to the smell of fresh made granola and cookies. The room we had was Rebecca Nurse room. Our bed was firm and the linens impeccable.
The next morning we were served a 5 star breakfast of pancakes and maple syrup. Other options were available such as the fresh made granola and yogurt .
All in all Coming to Morning Glory was like coming home. Thank you Bob, we will return!

Room Tip: Unique and Historic option rather than a room with a bed.

We only spent one night here and didn't even get breakfast because we had an early morning flight, but it was a lovely B&B. It was very clean. Our room and the common areas were exceptionally comfortable while decorated in a charming manner. The common room was nicely set up with computer, printer, frig stocked with water bottles, and coffee always available. A photo album in the common room showed the complete renovation of the Inn. Phew!! The hard work and love you put into the Morning Glory really shows in the finished product. The best thing about the Inn is the fabulous deck off the 3rd level. It has a beautiful view of the harbor through the trees as well as the other decks in the neighborhood. It was a great place to have a drink and enjoy dusk.

Hi Carol and many thanks for taking time to post your positive review of your time at Morning Glory! I believe when you arrived, I was out food shopping and with your early departure for the airport the following morning, I unfortunately did not get the opportunity to meet you and your husband. I do however want to thank you for all of your wonderful compliments!! The original renovation to my home 18 years ago was, as you mentioned, a lot of hard work but at the same time, it truly was a labor of love! So very happy you were able to enjoy the third floor roof deck and relax with the gorgeous sunset!!! I hope you are able to come back again so that I can get to know you both!! Until that time, I send you both my very best!

Warm regards,
Bob

This b&b is perfect as a first stop close to the airport well worth staying a few days. Bob is a perfect host who provides a great welcome. The location is ideal and only a short walk to the sea and local restaurants. Well worth a visit.

Thank you folks very much for your splendid review! So happy to read that you found everything about Morning Glory to be "perfect"! The B&B is ideally situated to all of the museums, attractions and restaurants in Salem but also, as you mention, a very short ride to Logan Airport. I am equally happy to read that you found the welcome warm upon your arrival. Please do come and stay with me again and until that time, I wish you both my very best!

Warm regards,
Bob

Bob is a very gracious host. Very personable and caring from the minute we arrived to the minute we departed. Morning Glory is very well appointed to all the town of Salem has to offer. Breakfast is delicious. The house is immaculate. And Bob is a true gentleman.
