Best bargain close to Boston.
We stayed four nights here and drove here. Previously, when I went to Boston by plane, I stayed in downtown Boston, but this time I drove and had to consider what to do with the car.
When at this hotel, I parked at the Oak Grove subway station for $6 per day on week days. On weekend, I just drove to Broadway subway stop( on the red line) and parked on the street( I parked on west fifth street, close to Dorchester) for free for the whole day. The traffic into and out of Boston was very light on weekend.
I also ran around the lake where the hotel was situated. Each loop is around 3 miles. Great for running. During my stay, I ran two times on this trail.
Don't bother taking a car into the downtown Boston. The $45 per day parking fee scared me away. By the way, you can get discounted parking for only $20, but it is for after 6PM. For $15, you can park in Chinatown after 6PM. I got a weekly transit pass for only $15, so it is much better to use the transit.
