can anyone recommend a mid priced hotel in Salem in which you won't need your car to get to attractions? We will be staying for 3 nights..nothing too fancy but nice
there are few choices in Salem (couple of hotels, some b & bs, motels), most of which are in walking distance of the tourist attractions. check out their websites or toll-free phone numbers and ask how long it takes to walk from their front door to the Peabody Essex Museum- should not be longer than 5 minutes. I'm not aware of mid-priced options- try some online search engines, and post back if you have more questions. Good luck!
You could stay at the Hawthorne Hotel or the Best Western Pickering Wharf. Both are in great locations for seeing Salem.
