Walking distance to many great landmarks, shops and restaurants.stayed here for the first time back in 2013 to run the marathon..same overall feeling..this particular room IS NOT... More

My wife and I decided to do an overnight trip to Boston in late March. At the last minute there were not a lot of reasonable options. I did see that the Hotel Buckminster had some availability for the Saturday night we were looking for. For under $200 and with some mixed reviews, we decided to give it a shot.... More

Great location, great staff, sound value. Very short walking distance to Fenway Park, Cask & Flagon, Boston Beer Works, Uno's Pizzeria, etc. While the noise from the expressway may be louder than expected, it provided great white-noise for a fantastic night's sleep.

Buckminster is in a very handy location just outside the city centre in Boston, literally only a two minute walk to the Kenmore metro station, which again is only 4-5 stops (10mins) in to Boston Common. You could even walk into the city centre (a, quite interesting, 30min walk to the Common). It's also right next to Fenway Park and... More

Thank you Tripadvisor reviewers. We booked a recommended top floor with a view of Fenway Park that was relatively quiet. The large bedroom and living room and bathroom were a pleasant and comfortable surprise. Yes, some of the furniture needs replacing but for $150/night we enjoyed 5 nights in comfort so we're not complaining and would be glad to return.... More

I recently had the opportunity to stay here for four days while attending a conference. My single bed room was immaculate, newly furnished, and had everything I want in a hotel room, including a desk and chair, small frig and microwave. I appreciated the wood floors, and very comfortable bed. The room was faced the inner court, so it was... More

Stayed March 7, 2015, for one night. You couldn't ask for a better location if you are visiting any venue in the Kenmore Square/Fenway area. Easy and extremely short walk from T station. Front desk staff was professional and gracious. Room was very large with full kitchen, separate living area and view of Fenway. Excellently located for concert at House... More

Came to Boston for a few days with the family. We had a 2 bedroom hotel room. We were expecting a little sitting room but we walked in to a bathroom and 2 doors (leading to each room). The hotel is old, which would be fine if the furniture wasupdated. The lamps were broke, light sockets didn't all work, phone... More

The hotel is in a great location as we were visiting Boston U. However, our room was in the back and the noise from the traffic was really loud. There was also considerable noise coming from the room next to us. The staff are very nice but as it was completely booked we could not relocate. Otherwise the rooms are... More

Just spent 4 nights in Boston with my family of 5. This property was perfect for our trip. It is hard to find a hotel that can accommodate a group of 5. This property has 2 bedroom suites with 3 (Queen) beds. The location was very convenient. You could walk across the street to a convenience store, bagel shops, coffee... More
