Just a few steps ahead from the previous location, you can find this stereotyped New England home in Salem’s town center. It’s not purely a hotel, thus you will find a different setting within this inn. But since it’s a top-rated property, the stay should feel you much like your own home. On top of that, you will even receive free breakfast every morning. The house is pet-friendly, and parking is free. But take note that only adults can stay here, they do not accommodate children or minors.
You cannot ask for a better downtown location for your accommodation than this little apartment on Congress Street. The standard lodging capacity for this condo is two adults, yet it’s bigger than you could imagine. It is a plain and simple apartment, and you should not expect many features. A small kitchen is available, but guests have to rely on a coin-operated laundry. And for the entertainment and connectivity, there’s just Wifi. However, it is a waterfront location and near many museums.

If you can raise your budget a little, then rent this historic flat in the heart of Salem. It is so old that the whole town has been erected around it. You wouldn’t be able to guess the age of this house as it’s now renovated, but it was originally built in the year 1769. It’s still ancient in some way, as the owners have conserved the original woodwork from that time. However, major parts of the building have been modernized. The apartment is huge, its kitchen spacious, and it comes with a patio deck.
