The Farrington Inn

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

very poor property, not clean. I had bugs bites every night during my stay.

Nice place to stay. Close to everything you want to see and in a safe neighborhood. Had a great experience here in boston.

I didnt like anything about & especially didnt like having to share the bathroom!!!

Uniquely old and antiquated. However, it works at half the price.

Was not impressed at all. Not very clean, Building looked like it needed repairs.

I have seen a rat in my room on the third nite of my stay and freak out. However, to compensate for it, the reception transferred me to a nice suite. In that suite, there was an issue of water in the washroom basin. Anyhow, I was at the hotel for the whole day, it didnt bother me much.

The hotel is a guesthouse, so in a sense, you get what you pay for. I was overall happy with it for the price and would probably go back if traveling on a budget. I felt that the hotel was clean and safe, and the staff were helpful and nice. However, it is necessary to point out that the facilities are rather old and could maybe use some updating. In sum, the hotel was fine to stay with but more like a hostel.

The Inn is how I expected, staff very kind, the price was far too high but prices where outrageously high in Boston in general and availability very limited. Location not bad.

The older man that greeted us was short with me a couple of times. He needs to learn hospitality from his bearded coworker who was very nice. The hotel/hostile is old. They need new beds and The shared bathrooms were not that clean and very old. The price was right but I would only stay there because it is cheap. Also, they rent to homeless who sit outside on front stairs smoking. That pretty much will give you an idea of the culture of the place.

I needed a bed and shower. That's what I got. The room needed better lighting and at least a chair for relaxing.

This facility is not suitable for business travel. Emphasis on the SHARED bathroom. We were moved to a 2 bedroom suit-- inappropriate for a boss and an employee. The room was dirty and the beds were awful.
