A church-owned hotel, the Salisbury often seems to take a, well, more charitable view of pricing than its brethren. When most every property nearby is charging $249, it’s often possible to get a $179 room here. Alas, the Salisbury has discovered high season, and during those periods, prices can jump to $339 (but they rarely seem to go higher than that; use a discounter site to get the best rates). Built by Calvary Baptist next door, the decor is what you’d expect in a church-sponsored place: a bit bland and not recently refreshed, but spotlessly clean. What’s unexpected here is the size of the rooms—massive (the hotel was originally designed as an apartment building)—and the fact that a number of units come with kitchenettes (minifridges, microwaves, toaster ovens) at no additional cost. All of that, combined with the (sometimes) lower prices, makes this an excellent choice for families. Rooms with two double beds will comfortably house a family of four. And the location is unbeatable.
