We always end up staying at the Marriott - either the Courtyard or the full service ones (Woburn North, Burlington and Newton). We don't like the Fairfield Inn - paid for one room once and didn't even sleep there when I saw it (Dedham).
But years ago, I remember having to go to a more moderately priced motel somewhere near Westboro and pretty much like it! 20 years ago.
I would like to know, of the chains in Massachusetts, what ones do you find the most, say, high quality, comfortable, sound proof (I don't sleep well listening to someone else's TV), etc.?
Are we making a mistake to pay, say $160 at a Courtyard (high season) when we could pay much less at a Comfort Inn or La Quinta? I have no memory of ever stepping into one of those.
I don't care about the food issue. We never eat at the hotel. We do want free parking.
Any opinions appreciated. And yes, I do know about the TA ratings and stars given for various motels. I want to see written opinions here.
