Stay near BOS airport

I will be flying into Boston Logan airport on Wednesday night (just after mid-night..so technically Thursday), and flying out at 11:00am Thursday morning. So, it will be around 10 hours, what is the best place to get some quick nap? What are the cheap hotel options (under $100) near airport which offer shuttle?
Thanks for any inputs.

Check Airbnb, if you do not mind crashing in a private home.

Logan doesn't usually have very cheap airport hotels, I imagine due to the relatively low supply and the fact that it is near the city center.

The Comfort Inn and Wyndham might be your best bet. They both have airport shuttles.

Its hard to find places that allow such a late night check in on a short stay.

As this query is specific to Boston, we'll move this over to the New England forum for further discussion. Thanks. /JY1024, TravelBuzz co-moderator

Boston is one of those cities whose hotels give many visitors a major case of sticker shock. Bunk beds in a multi person hostel room can go U$90 at certain times of year. Boston is pretty compact, and either the T or a taxi can get you to the airport. Use Priceline to see if you can find a lower hotel rate anywhere in town. U$130 before tax would be considered a bargain. Inquire of John Jeffries and Oasis, two of the less expensive properties of decent quality in town. And there's always advice at www.sleepinginairports.com. Good luck.

Funny, I've always been surprised how cheap rooms are on Hotel Tonight versus other cities.

Even tonight high season weekend night several nice hotels for $100.

It's hardly high season in Boston right now, after foliage season, despite some continuing warmish weather, so that comment is a bit misleading for any future readers. There's not a NYC type Christmas season with an effect on hotel prices. Also, only a certain market is willing to wait until the very last minute to book, the special niche of that site. Might work for the OP though.

Depending on when OP is traveling there may be deals at some of the hotels up route 1 (Comfort Inn, Four Points, Hampton Inn, etc). IMO anything sub $150 for the Hyatt Harborside (on Massport/airport grounds but requires shuttle ride) or Hilton (connected by indoor walkway) is good.
