5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

We absolutely loved our 2 day stay here last year. Walking distance to Fenway and eateries. Beds were comfortable. It's an older style hotel. Only downside was the parking. There is not a ton of parking and if you are lucky enough to get into the garage, it's a tight fit to park. Can't wait to return.

The Buckminster is a pretty old property and not particularly fancy, but it was very clean and quiet. For the price, I was surprised. For a basic, affordable hotel in Boston, I'd recommend it.
