Staybridge Suites – Burlington, MA

Very Nice! Staybridge Suites is located directly across from Sheraton Four Points on a side street parallel to I-495. For the extra twenty bucks, stay here instead of the Sheraton. It’s quieter, and much better quality.

The hotel features an evening Sundowner Reception with light fare, a 24-hour BridgeMart store, a 24-hour Fitness Center and a host of other amenities. Whether you’re planning a brief or extended stay around greater Boston, we’re ready to welcome you with convenience and comfort today.

There are three large regional shopping mall nearby including the sprawling Burlington Mall as well as the usual surrounding stores and restaurants. Boston is about 20 minutes away.

Days Inn – Attleboro, MA

This hotel is located off exit 1 on the Attleboro, MA/Pawtucket, RI border. Previous visits have always gotten me friendly reception by personnel and a clean room. While there is no restaurant on premises, there is a Super Dragon Chinese restaurant next door with reasonable priced entrees and a short jaunt down Rte.1 to Attleboro provides you with plenty of shopping and food options, ranging from fast food to sit down mid-priced dining. For the lottery lover or gambler in you, Vista Donuts is close by and open 24 hours for the keno fanatic or scratch ticket afficionado who wants to win big-they are famous for big lottery winners and you can always find someone winning there.The hotel is about 10-15 minutes driving time to Providence on 95 south, and close by to Foxboro stadium as well for the MLS soccer games or Patriots football fan.

Rates are reasonable, I have paid $55 or so in off season and as high as $100 or so in season. Traffic is somewhat heavy on summer weekends, but not unmanageable-Providence traffic is worse and during peak hours trips on I-95 south can be backed up for miles, so plan ahead if going to an event via I-95. Currently there is construction in the area as well, so traffic may be slower than normal.

Comfort Inn – Marlborough, MA

We stayed at this Comfort Inn on a trip up to Massachusetts after bringing my daughter to college in Worcester. This hotel is about 10 miles from Worcester, just off I-290.

It’s a real basic motel but fairly clean and comfortable. There is a large shopping mall (Solomon Pond Mall) just up the road that has a number of restaurants (TGI Friday’s). A complementary breakfast is included with your stay.
