    Get a place along the subway lines or along the Lowell line train. It makes the rest easy.

    If you're by car you can book a hotel cheaper just outside (Medford or Stoneham) otherwise along the harbour near one of the wharfs , The Marriot , Fairmount , Westin .. (approx 150.00-200.00$ ). All walking distance from Garden (about 10-15mins).
    Otherwise yes the train as Wheatskins suggested.

    anywhere inside the city is going to get pricey.  There's a couple of cheaper options in the ciy like the Holiday Inn at Beacon Hill or the Holiday Inn Boston Garden.  There's a few options up 93 North in Medford, which is only a short train ride.  I know there's a Hyatt, possibly a La Quinta too.  You might also find a cheap deal around the Airport (East Boston, Chelsea, Revere)  It's a quick ride on the Blue Line to Government Center.. then hop on the Green Line to North Station.

    I always stay at the Howard Johnsons right behind Fenway Park. It is nothing fancy but the price is right & the TD Garden is only a 5 minute subway ride away on the green line.

    Howdy. My wife & I live near Toronto and went to Boston for a game last year. We stayed at the Lenox on Boylston. It's rated #1 in the city and a stay there will show you why. Top drawer all the way. We will definitely stay there again next time we go to Boston. Fantastic city, by the way.

    keep in mind that if you are looking for a place to stay for less than $200 in the city, then the accomodations may leave a lot to be desired.  The Lenox, mentioned before, is a great hotel, but you could be spending $$ at a place like that. The hotels near the airport are cheaper and probably just as quick to take a cab or the subway to the Garden/downtown area than some other pricier options in Seaport or Fenway area. The only negative of Boston is that hotel prices are out of control, so be prepared to open your wallet!!!

    There are a couple hotels in Revere MA stay there, take the Blueline from Wonderland in. Allow about 30 minutes from Wonderland to North Station/Boston Garden with a switch from the Blue line to the Greenline towards Lechmere. Hit Hotels.com for the places in the area cheap. Parking at Wonderland is only $5 but depending on where you stay they may have a shuttle that can take you over.

    Re: where to stay when in boston?

    Good advice with the commuter rail idea.  I would lok up the rockport line http://www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/rail/ and stay near the beach. In October the prices will be alot less, and you can have some amazing seafood, possibly get a room with an ocean view. Then the rockport train ends literally at North Station/Boston Garden.  It drops you off inside the building actually. Get some fried clams and a beer near your hotel....life is good!

    the street around the Garden are loaded with bars that will be packed with fans. just pick any of them because on game nights its the same crowd: hockey fans who have been over served.  If you want to get away from the overserved hockey crowd, an easy 5-10 minute walk to Fanueil Hall will give you a choice of a ton of pubs/bars/clubs.

    Hyatt Place Boston/Medford. It's 4 mi outside the city on the Cambridge/93 North side of the city, so much less expensive. They have a free shuttle to the Davis Square Red Line, which also happens to be a great hangout place for food/drink. Hit Redbones for BBQ/beer or The Burren for Irish Pub/Beer in Davis. Any stop along the Red Line in this area is a good stop...Harvard Square for the obvious, excellent options at Kendall as well. Davis and Harvard are the best, though.

    Even if you don't want to do the shuttle to the T, the hotel often takes requests for their free shuttle. Tell the front desk you are going to the game, and there's a 90% chance others are as well and they send you on a free shuttle directly to the Garden.

    Either way...take the T back from the Game to Davis Square, enjoy a tasty beverage and shuttle back to the hotel. At the very worst, the short 4mi distance to the Garden means a cheap taxi ride home.

    No bait taken by me.  Unlike most here, I can resist the urge to reply.  As soon as I read the title I had planned on that response.  That poster was the perfect fit for it.

    But feel free to continue to try to make me look like a fool.  It hasn't worked yet.

    Not trying to make you look like a fool at all. I'm just reminding you what your sig line says and what you're preaching to others.
     
    And yes you took the bait and look like a fool without my help.
