We had a fun time at the Buckminster. The hotel definitely has character !! We actually had a light in our room that had no way to turn it on. The bed was so comfy..........the whole suite was great. We got some great shots of Fenway from our window and we were literally minutes away from the park. We found... More

We just had a really nice stay at Buckminster. Staff were all very friendly, restaurant had some good food and was delivered in a timely manner. Rooms were a bit small, just a smallish queen bed and 1 chair at a small desk. Bathroom was a decent size and the tub was in need of being replaced. Those things don't... More

While the staff was very nice, the Hotel Buckminster cannot be a 3 star hotel. A 2.4 perhaps. 1) there was NO closet. Yes, I said NO closet. There was a garment rack, that's it. I was stunned. 2) the telephone was that old time (at least 20 years old) phone. The tan square ones with the raised buttons, from... More

I visited Hotel Buckminster in early March on business trip. I chose it because it was one of the cheapest rooms available in a central area convenient to Brighton. I didn't realize at the time how convenient it was to the airport via either the free Silver line or blue line as well as other areas of Boston and to... More

We are glad to hear back from you. Being one of the oldest hotels in Boston, the Buckminster does have some very unique room designs. That along with our location and price value makes us a great choice for people looking to stay in the downtown area. More

I chose Hotel Buckminster because of its proximity to Boston University. This was my second time there. Both times were equally good. The rooms retain the old charm but with modern conveniences. To my surprise, the hotel is a stone's throw away from Fenway Park, the underground, and many fine restaurants. Cambridge is just across the river. I will return... More

Overnight stay with the Grandkids. We were treating them to their first ever Red Sox game and chose this hotel due to the close proximity to Fenway Park. That reason and, we've stayed here a few times in the past and found it convenient to everything we wanted to do. We were able to check in a bit early which... More

My boyfriend and I needed a nice hotel to stay in whilst we were in Boston for four nights, meeting up with family. The Hotel Buckminster is excellent value for money, being half the price of many of the other decent hotels we had looked at. It is well located being minutes away from the T and right next door...

We choose Hotel Buckminster because of its proximity to Fenway. It turned out to have so many other advantages as well. Yes - we could see Fenway from our room (what a great perk for these baseball fans), but it was in very close walking distance to the T, Prudential Center, and many other bars and restaurants. We followed directions... More

I've stayed here before twice. Great location and steps from the T. Had never stayed there before but am happy that I did. It's close to Fenway Park numerous bars and resturants also. Next time I go into Boston I may stay there.
