Budget-Friendly Hotels to Help You Save on Your Boston Stay

If you're looking to enjoy Boston without spending too much money on the place you stay check yourself into one of the area's best budget finds. Inner city hotels can cost well over four hundred dollars a night, taking a big chunk out of your vacation budget, but a few hidden gems, which may be without some of the bells and whistles of the more expensive hotels, or may require a short drive or MBTA ("T") ride to get to the downtown area can still offer you a clean, comfortable place to rest your head every night that you're in Boston. 

When you'd rather save your money to enjoy exploring the area, one of the 10best budget hotels is right for you. If sacrificing being in the city is not an option, a stay at the Buckminster Hotel, Chandler Inn, or Doubletree Inn in Chinatown will make you smile without emptying your wallet. And if you want to save a little more, and are not adverse to staying a bit outside the downtown area, reserve a room at the Westin Waltham-Boston in nearby Waltham, leaving you thirty minutes or less from downtown. Now take the money you've saved and spend it on your favorite activity whether it be dining at Boston's top restaurants, shopping in the best boutiques, or splurging on as many of the area attractions as you can fit into your time in Boston.
