Hotel $100 or less

any recommendations for a decent hotel for $100 or less, from which I can easily commute by car or public transit into the Boston Historical district? - I'll be coming in October for a short stay. Thanks.

I've been able to get four star hotels right in the city (Copley Place or Financial District) for a $100 name your own price on Priceline several times, but you must pay for parking which is usually around $38. For my frequent travel to Boston outskirts, the Dedham Hilton has fairly luxurious rooms (marble tile bath, awesome bed linens, lavazza coffee maker) that I have always been able to get on Priceline by bidding $50/three star for the Norwood/Dedham area. It is a bit of a drive into town, but there is free parking and a commuter train adjacent.

Priceline is probably the only way you'll find anything decent for less than 100 anywhere near Boston...

I must have been doing priceline too early for 6/6-6/10 since i didn't get anything for $120 or less. However, I did find Constitution Inn, which is just $99, and for us only $49 since I'm a military member - can't beat that even though it's not exactly the greatest place to stay.

Just back from the Hilton Financial Boston, cannot say enough great things about the place. Gave us a room on 12th floor even could see the water if we leaned a little. Huge refurbished room, thick terry bathrobes, nice marble/chrome bathroom. Only minor complaint was everything was feathers, pillows & comforter, and I'm super allergic. They did everything to try and find hypoallergenic ones but too late for the first night (our fault for checking in late). The staff is above and beyond in the service and friendly department. Clean rooms, clean hotel. They serve great coffee in the morning in the lobby area, take a cup back to the room, although there are little 2 cup makers in the room, but that's work! Book thru priceline if you can, it's SO worth it!

bananamamma - glad to hear you had a good experience @ the Hilton! Staying overnight there for a wedding in June (wedding @ Boston Harbor but room prices through the roof!) I am paying almost double what you paid through priceline and that's the discounted wedding rate!! So I'm happy you got such an awesome rate, happy it's a nice place & sad that I'm paying so much more :(

kbell: Don't be sad, these things happen, just enjoy! we waited and booked pretty much last minute (about 4 days before we were to arrive). Wwhen you get there, be very nice and smile alot and ask (quietly) if they have a really nice room for you... that's what I did and she found 1209 which as she pointed out, is a handicap equipped room, but other than the towel bars being a little low and having a higher seat on the toilet and a telephone shower head, all was the same... and as I already stated very nice.

If you're taking a car, you just won't need it. We walked or took taxis, so you can park it in a very safe garage about a 5 minute walk away (underground at the Post Office Square) for $9 a day..careful as we were charged the full $9 for Friday even though we only got in at 11:35pm... it goes by Sat and Sun (the special) there are many public lots in that area and they are very nice compared to ours here in Montreal, bright and airy. They even offer escort to your car if you want after a certain time (nice).

Thanks bananamamma - I actually drive into town here every day for work (right in PO square) so I'm used to parking. I plan on parking & staying parked though, driving around here is not fun even if you know where you're going!
