Quality Suites Alexander Inn

There’s several options in between so you’ll find something that’s right for you. There is free parking but it is limited and you can not reserve a spot.
Alpers Lodge in Newmarket is a 10 minute walk from the shopping district. The standard here is definitely 3-star, but it’s not nasty. It’s a good place for business travelers on a budget. The rooms all have a kitchenette so that you can microwave some dinner for yourself. Or you can wander into Newmarket and try one of the many fine restaurants there.
No. 9 Hotel
No. 9 Hotel is a 3 star hotel and backpackers in Newmarket. (This was until recently Haka Hotel New Market) It’s not fancy and the rooms are tiny. They also offer shared dorm rooms if you’re on a really tight budget. If you need parking here make sure you call and book a spot as they don’t have much.
Best Western Newmarket Inn & Suites
Best Western Inn Newmarket is a little further from the shops than you might like, but is still in walking distance (approx. 15 minutes). It’s been refurbished to a 4-star standard and well it’s not flash it’s certainly not unpleasant. This is a good option for business travelers. And it has free parking.
