Overblown.. I live right down the street, and they hire off-duty cops now. The neighborhood is fine - if you want more $$ to spend in the city, stay here without reservation. The last train back is about 12:30pm, costs $1.70 each way to go in and out of town, and it's right across the street.

The sheraton in Braintree is pretty safe, and they will gove to a ride to the T, and a ride back to the hotel. The mall is accross the street. They also do have some need rooms with a balcony outside.
I had a friend who drove to Boston, and stayed at the motel 6, they had no problem, that was last year. They liked the t to go into Boston. Sometimes you can by calling the hotel work out deals
or get specials.

Motels, why motels? They are perfectly fine choices in 99% of the USA but for Boston they are a very poor fit. The only thing going for them is their low price and probably a poor opinion of the city. If you are not staying for too long, you might consider another alternative - a B&B, or even bidding on a 2 or 3 star hotel on Priceline.

I got a DM from the OP the other day. He used Hotwire.com to book a downtown hotel for $71/night. That price is less than what motels in the 'burbs were quoting him. You just can't beat that. In Boston, given that it's so unfriendly to cars, location is everything and staying in the suburbs will taint the view of the city. I'm happy it worked out this way because the original poster will enjoy staying downtown in the thick of everything FAR better than he would had he stayed in the suburbs.
