We're driving to Boston over Labor Day weekend to move my son to his apartment in Allston. I'd love to find a decent hotel that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. There are plenty of options in Burlington, which looks to be about 30 minutes away, for $100-$125/night. Are there any hotels closer to Allston or Cambridge in that same price range? And if we do end up staying in Burlington, is there any reason to think that traffic will be horrible over the long weekend? Worse than normal, that is?

Thanks!!

You can try Air BnB, which is sort of like a very short-term sublet option. There's also the Harborside Inn, which is downtown (near to the Aquarium) and was just fine a few years back when I stayed there.

Traffic is going to be miserable in Allston all weekend with people moving, but unless you are staying a block away from your son's apartment, nothing is going to help that. I'd recommend getting out as early as possible to move. My incoming roommate is moving in at 4AM on the 1st, for example, because that's the only time he could get a UHaul.

Look in Waltham as well - it's a bit more convenient to Allston.

There's a basic and older Best Western in Allston-Brighton, but I bet it's out of your price range. Perhaps call and negotiate?
