The BEST places to stay in M.A. on a budget

Jump to last reply

By budget, I'm talking about less than $60 a night.
I have spent endless hours reading all the reviews of dozens of places on Tripadvisor.com as well as some recommendations from the forums etc.. Yes I also have the current MOON guide that recommends a few places but quite frankly they all get bad reviews and cost more than the (outdated) book says.

What I'm looking for is something close to the beach and the action that is relatively clean and quiet (I'm not expecting too much for $60-). So far I'm leaning toward DiDi's B&B although it has some mediocre reviews on tripadvisor and it's not that close to MA. I also read good things about Hotel Plaza Yara but also it is not close to the beach/park. For another $30 I could "upgrade" to a place like Hotel Verde Mar which has a fantastic location but gets bad reviews in the cleanliness area.

Any input/experience with cheap lodging in M.A.?
