Take the Family › Best Places to Stay

Family-friendly places to stay in Massachusetts

Boston has hotel rooms starting at $200 for a family of 4. All the major chains are represented and offer perks to families (kids under a certain age stay free in a parent’s room, eat free or at a discount, and sometimes get reduced admission to an attraction). Prices are generally lower outside the city limits, but you sacrifice convenience and will spend more time (and money) getting to and from the sights. The unique Liberty Hotel at the foot of historic Beacon Hill – opened in 2007 in the former Charles Street jail but looking like no prison we’ve ever seen – offers a Freedom Trail package.

Cape Cod also has a great choice of family-friendly accommodation, from B&Bs, inns and motels to full-service hotels, with something to suit every budget. Note that many close Nov–March due to the weather. Cape Cod Holiday Estates in Mashpee, 120km from Boston Logan, is a quiet enclave of comfortable stand-alone 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom self-catering cottages in the woods, with an indoor pool, tennis court, laundrette and concierge. You can drive to most places on the Cape in an hour or less, to shops and restaurants within 10 minutes, and to Cape Cod Children’s Museum and a beach within 5 minutes.

In the Berkshires, Comfort Inn, Crowne Plaza, Days Inn, Econo Lodge, Holiday Inn, and Quality Inn all have properties suitable for family holidays, most offering complimentary breakfast and other family perks. If you’re staying in Massachusetts a week or longer, consider renting a house through VRBO or HomeAway.
