Score from 766 reviews Good
Confortable bed nice and helpful personnel they upgraded me to a suite Good location: public transport at a walkable distance
Internet is sometimes not accessible if too many users connect at the same time No real blind to make the room dark (curtains let the light pass) No light in the corridor of the suite (need to walk in the dark until leaving room)
Good location and able to walk to many atteactions, or grab a cab for downtown.
Boston is a very expensive city for accommodation, and The Buckminster, although adequate, was very expensive for a two night stay.
We had an upgraded room - a suite and it was very spacious had been refurbished not too long ago. Comfy bed and a full kitchen. This is an older building but well kept and a was good value for money. Food was nice and well priced if a little plain (which suited us). There are nicer hotels but not at that price point. :-)
Possible road noise from local freeway which is close by - depends on your ability to sleep and which room you get I suppose.
excellent front desk staff willing to help with my constantly changing schedule
Location is across the street from Boston University, the reason for our stay. Clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff.
You can hear the traffic at night.
Staff were very helpful and friendly!
Staff Old character of hotel
Some furniture needed to be binned. Whoever had done the touch-up painting was either very short-sighted or had a nervous twitch or both - very poor standard. Compared unfavourably with NYC Marriott which was only slightly more expensive.
More like a 1 bed apartment Kitchen Spacious
Noise from the furnace closet.
The suite was spacious and quiet
I would have preferred a tv in the fitness center
Location was excellent. Near to public transport and a walkable distance from downtown. Good size room which, although dated, was perfectly adequate and gave us plenty of space. Plenty of plug sockets also.
The hotel had numerous poor reviews on the internet but we found none of the comments were accurate. The hotel was clean, the staff helpful and the food in the restaurant/bar quite good as well as reasonably priced. If we go to another Red Sox game we would definitely stay there.
I liked the Buckminsters location. If I was in town for a Redsox game it would be the place to stay. Close to T stop and easy to get around Boston. Restaurant in hotel was very good. I would stay again, and recommend it to friends.
Very clean, small, charming and well located. I was also able to get a good rate. Upon arrival, when they couldn't provide the requested accommodations, I was bumped up to a spacious suite. Very nice.
Good price and facilities particularly the on site restaurant having evening meal offers and also receiving the $10 breakfast voucher each made us use this rather than going out although there were decent restaurants nearby. Also hotel is within 50 metres of the subway stop straight into Boston. Journey takes about 20 mins and is easy if you get a Charlie Card. We stayed 3 nights and bought a 7 day pass for $19 each well worth doing particularly if you fly into and out of Logan airport.
Nothing particularly although the rooms are a bit small and rather dated but then it is an old hotel.
The only comment is that re-sealing all windows will disconnect better the room from the outside (traffic) noise
Bed was comfortable. Breakfast at Fenway bar / restaurant below was good, a lot of options. Location immediately near Fenway Park baseball arena. Close to downtown, but not immediately near.
The WiFi was very poor, we could not properly work during our stay. The hotel furniture is all worn out, everything is old, the elevator and common area also (I haven't seen such an old tv for ages). No gym facility, although advertised.
Close to transport stations. Staff very helpful. Great comfy beds. Good modern bathroom and shower. Safe facility in room.
Bar closed early before 11.00 pm even for residents. No coffee or tea making facility in the rooms although a microwave and fridge are provided. Early part of the week local bars to hotel close early. Bar does not serve spirits. Info about local restaurants and bars and city tour info was not provided in rooms.
Location close to BU
Staff was unbending Room was to small No senior discount
The staff were excellent. Very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a pretty good location, right next to Fenway and a block from the trains.
Room was very small, and the bathroom tiny. There was no coffee maker in the room, and when I asked why, I was told "because the restaurant serves coffee". Every hotel restaurant serves coffee, but there are ALSO coffee makers in the rooms. (CHEAP!). I had a very difficult time sleeping due to the rigid, lumpy foam rubber pillows. (Again, cheap.) The alarm clock was across the room from the bed. (Wait...WHAT??) The TV was at least 15 years old and just 19 or 20". I didn't care so much about that, but it demonstrated the very apparent low-budget mentality of this hotel's owners.
Good location near tram, charles river, university. Rate is attractive
Frontdesk lack of interest. Rooms are quite outdated
Location, room space and staff.
Curtains don't protect against morning lightness (really annoying)
Pillows and bedding were the best! Loved the convenience of the fridge too.
Shower pressure was poor and no shelf or any area near the sink for toiletries.
Comfortable bed and friendly staff
