U.S. Salboat Show

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but..

My wife and I will be attending the US Sailboat show in Annapolis this October. It will be our first time there and I am looking for reasonable (ok affordable, ok cheep) hotel recommendations either within walking distance of the show or close to public transportation.

Thanks in advance-

Forget about cheap hotels within walking distance. They don't exist and if they did, they'd already be sold out. There are a few lower-priced hotels on the outskirts of town on Riva Rd. and Old Bottom Rd. (Best Western, Holiday Inn Express and Village Inn) that are only a block or two from a city bus stop and 15-20 minutes from downtown.

Also, many residents in Annapolis rent out their homes (and boats) during the show. Check Craigslist. I live three blocks from the show and plan on staying on our boat at that time.

Good luck.

If you play to have a rental car, find a place out of town as dennisjay suggests then drive to Eastport and park on the street. From there its an easy walk across Spa Creek Bridge to the show.
