I decided to stay at a B&B while working at the hospital. I don't regret a minute of it. Ed & Jody are the perfect hosts. From the pictures I posted you can see the room I stayed in. Breakfasts were home cooked & served with China & crystal. Definitely will stay again when I am in the area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Badollet House, circa 1854, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After an extensive restoration/renovation, owners Ed and Jody Smalley opened the home on a limited basis to provide bed and breakfast accommodations, weddings, receptions, special occasion dinners, celebrations, and business meetings. Wedding consultation and floral design and decor have become a specialty of the business. Jody is available to assist you in creating a memorable event that is in keeping with your personality and expectations with respect for your budget. Featuring period decor with contemporary conveniences, the home will accommodate groups of 50 guests for formal dining, 75 for lighter fare, or up to 150+ for open house format receptions. Larger gatherings can be held in the special garden area that has been created to provide the perfect outdoor setting. Situated alone on a city block near downtown Salem, the Badollet House and its grounds provide a convenient location and quiet atmosphere to host private groups or overnight stays. By paying attention to the smallest detail, the Smalley's hope to be "A Special Place for Your Special Occasion." Advance reservations are required. ... more   less
