If you don't mind--and I don't--a hotel that is old, has small rooms, pipes for water / drainage visible near the ceiling, and is in the shape of a wedge, this is a perfectly fine hotel. More, if you're going to a baseball game at Fenway Park, it's only a ten minute walk away. The hotel was clean, the food... More

Enjoyed the location, close to our daughter's apartment., Kenmore T station, BOston U....and of course Fenway. We booked our stay last year to visit our daughter, unfortunately, one day of our stay was during a Red Sox game.. What we paid for that one day...was more than the three addition days of our stay! This is the second stay at... More

As a fellow at the Harvard Medical School coming from a tropical country, Indonesia, I needed to take a weekend break from our cold Boston apartment in Park Drive area. I did not know what to expect from this hotel. Turned out that it was reasonably priced, spacious, clean, and quite thoughtful in giving a 10 USD breakfast coupon.

The Buckminster Hotel is only a ten minute walk to Fenway Park. The restaurant inside the hotel is fine for breakfast and a small dinner. The rooms are fine and comfortable. If you want "fancy" then this is not your place. If you want good rates, easy access to Fenway Park then this is the place! I've stayed here twice... More

Nothing special about this hotel except for its proximity to Fenway Park! it is only steps away and one has no choice but to get caught up in Red Sox fever (even if you aren't a Red Sox fan). Hotel is also conveniently located to the Old Town Trolley stop which is the only way to see the city. I... More

I had booked this room 4 months in advance planning for our family outing to Fenway. I must say it was a nice surprise to be quickly greeted with a smile and upgraded to a suite. It was a perfect location to everything we wanted. Easy parking, easy walking & even close to the T stop to ride closer to... More

Nothing fancy, almost Spartan, but the room is surprisingly spacious, the prices reasonably fair (especially given its location -- half the price of the more luxurious nearby Hotel Commonwealth), and hey, it's close to Fenway (visible from our room). I had only one major beef -- the elevator smells horrible. I mean, really really horrible. I assume it's a perfumey... More

My girlfriend and i spent our anniversary here this past winter during the largest snow storm of the year. While everything else in the city was shut down, they had a restaurant and bar open by the lobby. The food was very impressive (but also expensive) as well as providing a good selection of drinks. However the waitstaff were EXTREMELY... More

This hotel was the perfect blend of historical culture as it's an older hotel but we stayed in an updated "superior queen" room. We had a view of Fenway just a block's walk away. The subway station is less than a minute away so very easy to get anywhere in the city. The staff was all very friendly.

Great hotel the staff was friendly and very helpful and rooms were clean. Awesome view of Fenway from our room which is why we choose this hotel. The hotel is old so keep that in mind when booking if you are looking for new and trendy this isn't your place but the charm of the building was great and like... More
