My wife and I, together with my parents, stayed at the Morning Glory B&B for 2 nights during our 3 week trip across the N-E US.
If you want to visit the Boston area, you'll spend at least as much on an anonymous hotel in Boston, as you would on a B&B in Salem.
And as far as B&B's go, you can't get any better than the Morning Glory.
We have stayed in several B&B's, and found the Morning Glory absolutely delightful.
The B&B is very conveniently located, only about a 5 minute walk from the ferry to Boston (which takes about 45 minutes, and is much more fun than the 30 minute train ride), and about a 10 minute pleasant walk through historic Salem to shops and restaurants.
We stayed in the Rebecca Nurse room, my parents in the Elizabeth Howe room, and both rooms are beautiful: clean, well appointed, and very homely and cozy.
The bathroom was very clean and well kept, and we both loved the big soft fluffy towels, which were replaced every day.
The common room is also very lovely, and the option of using the internet is very nice to have. In the common room there is a book with all the local restaurants in it, with a map (of which you can take a copy) and menu's of those restaurants. There are also brochures and other maps of Salem and surrounding area available.
The breakfast was wonderful: Bob's mom does a fantastic job with baking cakes, muffins, etc.
And, since we are from Europe, we loved the stronger coffee. Like Bob said: you can make stronger coffee weak, but you can't make weak coffee stronger!
Bob just couldn't be any nicer, friendlier and more helpful.
There was only one thing we truly disliked, and that was having to leave...
We can't wait to come back and stay with Bob for Halloween!
