$90/night at the Moby Dick Motel in Dartmouth

...I figure this will be extremely short notice for most. That and it's pretty out of the way relative to the Hynes Convention Center.

Regardless, the rate's legit: http://www.themobydickmotel.com/

They accept cash as a form of payment. No credit card needed to reserve a room. They charge a flat rate of $90 a night (taxes included) though they will take $5 off if you have a school ID (College or high school). I stayed here last summer. I can confirm all the rooms come with a fridge and a microwave. Every room has its own bathroom attached (shower, sink and toilet), towels included. Also, every single room has a different design and that is intentional ^_~

Dattco charges $28 round trip between Boston (South Station) and New Bedford (SRTA Bus Terminal). From the bus terminal, you can either take one of the local buses or a call a taxi to get to the motel. Or use a Ride Sharing service like Uber or Lyft to go from the Hynes straight to the motel. Dattco has very limited service on weekends just so you know: 3 trips a day in either direction for a total of 6 trips Saturdays and Sundays).

This might be a viable option for those who might want a place to crash post-Con before heading home and have a car. It is 90 minutes from Boston so if you're not driving or carpooling, it might not be a viable option for the weekend.
