A real steal

Would recommend Wed, Nov 20, 2013
Stayed Monday through Tuesday. For less than $110, got a huge double room with a queen bed, a couch and 2 TVs. Staff was courteous and helpful. Good location. Can't beat the price.

Money saver

Do not make reservations via hotel website, it's cheaper via travel websites.

Very nice.

Would recommend Wed, Nov 13, 2013
We liked the location near the subway. The hotel is very nicely appointed for an older property, everything worked well and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was nice and efficient, and we especially liked the service and food in the restaurant. Will definitely return as guests.

Time saver

Subway access is great.

Location, Location, Location!

Stone's throw away from Fenway Park and right on green line it doesn't get any better than this for location. The rooms were large, bright, and airy. On the minus side, there were 2 dim lamps in the room and no overhead lighting. It was difficult to see anything or get ready past sundown. The bathroom also left a lot to be desired especially with water pressure being non-existent and there being absolutely no counter space to place your make-up or accessories. Also, there was no coffee-maker in the room which was a very big negative for me.

Expensive city, lovely people

Would recommend Mon, Oct 7, 2013
Everything in Boston is expensive. Hotel is quaint but helped by its great staff and central location. Room layout is quirky, but a feature of an old building. They could do with a bit more in the way of in- room amenities like tea and coffee making facilities. But otherwise a great base whilst in Boston.

Attractions

Check for Red Sox game timings, it is bang next door to Fenway Park!

Need Some Update

Would recommend Fri, Sep 27, 2013
My sister and I stayed at the hotel this week. The hotel is at a very convenient location, close to public transportation. There are plenty of restaurants within the vicinity. However, the hotel is definitely outdated. Don't expect a 5 star experience here. Some of the furnitures in the room were damaged, especially the counter top, where you can see the paint peeling off. Overall, it was an ok experience, you should consider it if you don't want to spend a lot of money and want to stay at somewhere close to public transit.

BaseBall Weekend

Would recommend Tue, Sep 24, 2013
Came from Tiger Town to watch the Tigers play the Red Sox. The view from here is Fenway. It is about a 10 min walk to the park. The hotel is nothig fancy. You are close to places to eat. The subway is about a block away. Had a great time with the front desk staff, being from Michigan.

Dining

Had the best dinner at Atlantic Fish Co. You could cut the steak with a butter knife. 2 stops away by subway and a 10 min walk. Call ahead!! To kill time while you are waiting go across the street to Prudential Building and walk through all the shops.

Right across the street from Fenway!!!

Would recommend Tue, Aug 20, 2013
Can't believe this hotel is only rated as 2-stars. The location cannot be beat if you are going to Fenway. There's not a lot in the immediate area, but it is a short trip on the "T" to get into downtown Boston. This hotel is historic but also modernized. Staff was great at the front desk as well as in the hotel restaurant. A short walk up the street and you are at Fenway Park! We could see Fenway from our room - Room 411.

Dining

Uno's Chicago Grill is right down stairs on the corner from the hotel. Good deal on two pizza's to go - take them back to your room! Or dine in.

Work Trip Accomodations

Would recommend Mon, Aug 19, 2013
I came to Boston last week for a convention for work and decided to book a hotel away from the convention and came across Buckminster. I really enjoyed my stay here! The room was incredibly clean, spacious and had everything I needed. The staff was awesome and the location could not have been better. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to friends.

Dining

Giacomo's in Boston's "Little Italy" neighborhood was such a gem and an amazing dining experience!

It was great. I was there to see the Red Sox play ball. The hotel was within walking distance to the park and I could actually see the park from the window in my room. I enjoyed my stay very much and would definitely stay again!

Dining

A great sportsbar!
