Hi everyone,

I will be in Boston at the end of the month, I will have a car but plan on taking transit as well. I was just wondering what suburb would be the cheapest and safest for a hotel on the train lines? You do have commuter trains right? I would probably be in the city late out at the bars so do the trains run until last call in Boston to take me back to the outer parts of the city? Any help would be great, thanks everyone.

The trains stop running around 1230-1245, so you'll miss them if you wait until last call. How much per night are you looking to spend?

Quincy Marriott is nice, up on a hill. Has a nice breakfast. A free shuttle will take you to the nearby subway to get downtown.

A late-night cab back may be $40, though.

Hopefully free parking for guests which costs almost $50 in big downtown hotels...

The Hilton in Woburn is maybe 12 miles north. Also a Courtyard by Marriott, Red Roof Inn and Hamton Inn there.

Newton has a Marriott as well as a Four Points Sheraton over the Mass Pike.

If you wanna stay in the Boston Bars till last call, best bet is ditch the car and spend a few extra bucks to be right in the middle of all the action so you can walk back to your hotel. Walking around BOS after the bars close is a blast, and you might even get lucky. Pick a hotel within a mile of Boston Common and you'll be all set. Much better idea, experience than penny pinching for a hotel in Woburn that'll save you $50 but you gotta risk drinkin and driving. Stay in town, get blasted, and stumble home with all the other drunks. Loaded honeys staggering down the street can be mighty entertaining.
