In addition to the properties listed, a clutch of motels and chain hotels are bunched up in a bustling mall zone on the hillside above town (along Regent and Prospect sts.), about 10 minutes' drive from downtown.

The dependable local entrant in this pack is the Fredericton Inn, 1315 Regent St. (tel. 800/561-8777 or 506/455-1430), situated in between two malls. It's a typical soothing-music-and-floral-carpeting sort of place that does a brisk business in the convention trade. But with its indoor pool, nice little whirlpool, and surprising fitness center, it's an adequate overnight stay for vacation travelers, as well -- and the price is right. Peak season rates run from C$99 to C$135 for a double room, up to C$199 for an apartment or suite.
