places to stay near Colchester, Ct!

We are visiting friends in Colchester and would like an nice, interesting place to stay that is not too far. Preferably an inn or bed and breakfast. There is no place in Colchester as i see it. I have looked at Norwich, which seems to be the closest place. Would not be opposed to trying Old Lyme or Saybrook, but would prefer someplace closer. Any ideas? Also would like for it not to break the bank! preferably not over $200 a night. We are staying for 3 nights. Thanks in advance. Also any ideas of "must see" places.

Colchester is the middle of nowhere. Biggest sites near there would be either of the casinos or a trip to Mystic.

parents of a friend of mine have stayed at each of these a few times and I have driven past each of them a few times. Still a little bit of a drive to Colchester.

I won't comment on Old Lyme or Saybrook but those would definitely work and probably be very nice.

Since you mentioned Norwich and Bed & Breakfasts, I drive by this place sometimes:

It's not far off route 2, which would take you to Colchester. I think it's interesting because apparently Benedict Arnold lived there for a time. He was born in Norwich.

If there's nothing in Colchester you may want to look at the towns just north of there. Driving to and from Old Lyme or Saybrook if you're going to visit your friends each day would be a haul - but those are both nice places to stay.

thank you so much for suggestions. I think we will just stay in southern connecticut, and visit with friends one of the days. I am down to 4 places:

3 Liberty Green, in Clinton,CT.

Scranton Seahorse Inn- Madison, CT

Waters Edge Resort- Westbrook,Ct

Westbrook Inn- Westbrook, Ct.

Any recommendations as to which one would be preferable? It seems like Madison might be a nice town to be in. Thanks in adance.

Take a look at hotels in Glastonbury, CT. There is also a beautiful inn right on Main St. Glastonbury is a short drive on route 2 to Colchester.

Madison is pretty far. Did you look into the Copper Beech Inn located in the Ivoryton section of Essex? There is always the Grisowld Inn in Essex as well. Far closer to Colchester.
