Hello and thanks for reading! My husband and I are relocating to the Groton area (Pfizer) in a few weeks and while looking for a house to buy, we need to find temporary living quarters. Can anyone recommend any apartments or motels/hotels that offer short term stays (30-60 days or less)? Thank you!

Thanks for the suggestion, skytrekker. Does anyone have any suggestions for inexpensive but decent hotels/motels in the Groton area?

Motels and hotels that are inexpensive?

What amount would you consider paying for a night?

There is a Super 8 in Groton- if you agree to 1 month- it will be $55 a night-plus 6% tax

The Days Inn in Groton for 1 month will run $2024-

both of these are for 2 adults- I suggest you type into Google- 'Groton-New London Motels/Hotels to see these chains and other local lodging possibilities. Do get back to the forum and tell us luck you have had?

Actually, our hotel tax is 12%...

Thanks for the information! We were hoping to spend less than $75 a night.

I have looked online at some of the local hotels/motels and figured a month would run between $1500 and $2000. Are all hotel taxes around Groton 12%? So when I'm looking at prices, I have to consider the room charge plus the tax, right? Are there are any other taxes or charges I need to be aware of?

Basically my husband and I need temporary housing until we find a house. I figure we'll need to plan for at least a month, if not a bit longer. My biggest concern was just finding a place we could stand to live in that long--taking into account hotel amenties and area safety. I will continue my online research! Thanks!

Hotel taxes as Rich corrected me on are 12% statewide. The prices I gave above include the 12% tax.

There are no other charges other then the state tax-good luck in finding a home in south eastern Connecticut.

Isn't Pfizer helping with that? They're usually pretty good about relo expenses...

Yes, Pfizer offers a lump-sum allowance to help with our relocation costs, but we're still trying to be conscious of how much we spend. We don't know how long or how much money it will take before we find and settle down into a house. Thanks for all of your suggestions and comments! I'm still in the process of researching hotels online.
