I´ll be visiting Boston this coming June, but for cost reasons I´ll be staying in Danvers (Knights Inn) for 4 days (cheeper than Boston). Is there is anyway I could get to Boston by train and if so, how can I do it? Is it easy, inexpensive? Thank you for your help.

Bad idea. That's pretty far into the suburbs with no direct train access. You'll have to either rent a car or else take a cab to the nearest commuter rail station (Peabody? Salem?) then take that into the city, which will cost time and money.

I would highly recommend staying in Salem instead of Danvers, unless there's a good reason (other than $$) for Danvers. You've got the commuter rail station right there in Salem, for almost direct access to Boston. Plus Salem is such a fun little city to traipse around when you're not actually in Boston--MUCH more to see and explore than Danvers. The stay might cost a tad more than Danvers, but I think your trip will be much more enjoyable, and you'll get to explore 2 historical Massachusetts cities in your stay...

I agree with Valerie. You'll me much better off in Salem. A couple of hotels off the top of my head you can check out include the Hawthorne Hotel and Salem Waterfront. Both are walking distance from many Salem attractions.

Agreed with others on here - stay in Salem.

Maybe OP is attending some kind of conference at the hotel in Danvers? Otherwise, I absolutely concur with the statement about Salem. "Second prize is a week in Danvers."
