“You MUST stay here! INCREDIBLE.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

We LOVED the Morning Glory b&b SO much! Our room, the Elizabeth Howe room, was not only beautiful and well decorated, but immaculate. It was completely stocked with little items that let you know how much the innkeeper cares: shampoo & soap dispensers, q-tips, makeup wipes, etc. The common room outside of our bedroom was also fully supplied with a keurig, coffee, tea, bottled water, a computer area, and an array of pamphlets for local attractions.

The innkeeper, Bob, was possibly the most amazing person we have ever met. He is incredibly kind and welcoming and the best cook...EVER. We only had two mornings to enjoy his awesome food, but both times were delicious. After eating, he was extremely helpful while pointing out the best points of interest on the map.

Our stay could not have been better and we can't express how beautiful and perfect the place was. If you get the chance to stay here, take it! We certainly will again.

Wow...thank you so very much Kate for such a flattering review! I am delighted to read that you found Morning Glory "beautiful and perfect"! You made my day. I work very hard to make sure that each and every guest has the best possible stay at my B&B and at the same time, the best possible experience in this historic city of ours, as I feel that the overall experience is what is important. Thank you Kate for your many compliments and I certainly look forward to your return visit. Until then, I send you both my very best!

Warm regards,

We have just returned home to NI after a fantastic holiday to New England. One of the highlights was definitely our stay at Morning Glory where we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. Our host, Bob, was welcoming and friendly . He had great tips about places to visit and where to eat in the evening. The guesthouse itself is exquisite and our room,the Bridget BIshop room, was beautifully furnished, and very comfortable. Breakfast was always delicious. We would recommend Morning Glory to everyone who wanted to visit this part of the world and we certainly would hope to return

I was looking forward to having a fabulous stay at this B&B due to the ratings and comments on TripAdvisor. And I was most certainly not disappointed!!! This place was warm and welcoming, immaculately clean and tidy, beautifully furnished and decorated. My room, the Rebecca Nurse room, was spacious and very comfortable. The location was perfect if you are looking for a quiet retreat but also want to be within walking distance to the center of activities. Bob was always friendly, gracious, and helpful. Breakfast was light and lovely. Overall, it was a wonderful experience where I felt not only safe and comfortable, but also spoiled. I will most definitely recommend this B&B to anyone travelling to Salem, but do remember to book early.

Room Tip: Rebecca Nurse room is very spacious with a large bathroom and a sitting area with a fireplace

Very warm, friendly and I highly recommend a stay here. Extremely quiet and comfortable place to get away from the hectic aspects of life.Perfectly located with so many Historic sites within walking distance or just a quick walk over to The House of the Seven Gables to catch a ride on the Trolley. I will be back, Thank You Bob for being such a Gracious Host.

My wife and I booked a room based solely on TripAdvisor recommendations. What can I say, but the reviewers forTripAdvisor were absolutely correct! Thank you, friends.

"Impeccable" means that nothing was wrong... but I'd have to add to that that everything was right, from the welcome we received, to the decor of the rooms, all aspects of our stay. Even the flower beds in front and around the building were delightful and, yes, impeccable!

Definitely will book again.

Wow, many thanks for submitting your wonderful review! I am so pleased that you found every aspect of your stay at Morning Glory "impeccable". I work just as hard on the outside landscaping of my home as I do on the chores inside my home and I appreciate your kind remarks on both!

Relaxing, quiet, very clean, really comfy bed, delicious breakfasts, beautiful view from the 3rd floor deck and a fireplace in our room to take the chill off on an unseasonably cool spring evening! Mike and I thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. Since Mike owns his own business, we rarely get away. We really hit the jackpot when we selected this wonderful B&B.

I agree with the other reviews that highlight why this B&B is so successful... It is Bob! Sometimes when staying at a B&B you often feel as if you are infringing on someone's home. This was not the case at all. Bob made you feel welcome and comfortable...making sure that everything you needed was taken care of, while not being intrusive.

We will be back!

Room Tip: The fireplace was wonderful! We were in the Rebecca Nurse room. It was certainly worth it!

Hi Sara and thank you so very much for your glowing review! The weather was a bit unseasonable for spring, I agree, but I am glad you and Mike were able to have a cozy evening by the fireplace in your guestroom to take the chill off! Thank you as well Sara for you kind words!! I do my best to accommodate all of my guests needs and at the same time, respecting their privacy without being intrusive. I am glad you felt taken care of! Please do come and visit again if you should get the chance. Until then, I send you both my very best!
