                          It's charm and location.

                          Missed having a coffee pot in the room or coffee available after breakfast.

                          The price.

                          There is too much nosie outside. I could not sleep all night. Also, no free parking position for me to park my car.

                          It was relatively clean and well maintained. It was in a good, safe area and there were plenty of food stores and eateries close by. Fenway Park is around the corner.

                          The front counter staff need to go back and be re-trained on customer satisfaction and friendliness. Arrived for a early evening check in, we enquired about whether the hotel did any food services at this time, told that there are shops outside. No one EVER said good morning or good evening when we entered or exited the hotel. The front counter staff, especially the 5pm-12pm shift go out of there way to ignore you and are more concerned about talking to each other about what they will be doing on the weekend rather than attend to any guests that are standing in front of the desk. First night at the hotel after travelling for 24 hrs, there was a persistent loud noise coming from the air-conditioning shaft adjacent to our room, finally went down to reception desk at 5am to try and re-locate to a new room..not possible till next day...then got a new room this time facing the 4 lane highway just outside our window...Forget it, no idea on how to run a hotel. Just based on these facts alone...we will not return to this hotel.

                          The room was really small and old but has everything inside. Cleanliness ok. Friendly staff. Breakfast was great with waffles, toast and fruits. Location is great. Can walk to mit or backbay within 30 min. Or the subway is just half block away.

                          Too small room, the tv is old fashioned.

                          Location to Fenway Park, amazing! Room was very clean; building has a restaurant/bar that was very convenient both before and after the game. The view from my friends room was awesome of Fenway Park 5th floor.

                          Premium King room we had cost more, my friends had 2 twins, a phenomenal view of Fenway from 3 large windows and a larger bathroom. Would definately stay in the room they had over ours for the view and cheaper price.

                          Spacious old room - I enjoyed it a lot! I am not a fancy hotel gal and I liked this quirky old building! Staff was friendly, warm and very responsive. Location was great for our needs. Bed was soooo comfortable!

                          Very small tv screen; no hot water in evenings (took about 20 minutes to get - this was not good and certainly not "green"!); difficulty getting high speed internet (had to call company)

                          Very appropriately located. In the center of Kenmore Square, with a few steps to public transportation.

                          Staff is A+ upbeat & so helpful! The lobby is gorgeous & very comfy. Comfy bed & quiet- slept like a baby. Easy walk to anywhere.

                          My room had a view of just an "alleyway" but that did mean total quiet and great privacy!

                          *The staff. They were very friendly and cheerfully helpful. *The location. It is across the street from Fenway Park which was perfect for us. *The room was very clean and our bed was comfortable. *A very good continental breakfast selection. * It is near a T station (Kenmore Square) which makes travel to other parts of the city easy. * Moderately priced in relation to many hotels.

                          * The parking is inconvenient and not clearly marked though it is next door to the hotel. We missed the turn on our way in and when we did find our way back for a second try we entered the wrong way and had to back out and enter down a narrow ramp. A very small section is reserved for hotel guests and it is not clearly marked. The spaces are tight and no fun to navigate though the attendant was patient and helpful.

                          We liked the position, a little way from the centre of things but within walking distance. The hotel was quiet, the breakfast ok but not brilliant.

                          There was no coffee or tea making facilities and not even a machine to get a hot drink from. If you are checking in don't expect any help. Two young guys were on the reception and only offered help when we had got our baggage up two small flights of steps and to the lift door!! Joshua asked us if we needed help with directions as we were checking out. Natalia on reception was lovely, she made up for the attitude of some of the male staff.

                          My 17 year old son and I loved staying at the Hotel Buckminster in Boston. The people were great and the rooms were wonderful! We had asked for a room with two Queen size beds. We got two rooms with their own bathroom. The view was amazing. The t was a block away as were really nice restaurants. It is just below the Citgo sign! The location couldn't have been better. The breakfast was included. It was very busy, but the employees kept refilling all of the items.

                          I wish I didn't have to pay $28.00 to park my car for each day of our stay!

                          Hotel Buckminster was as good as their prior reviews. We were extremely satisfied and enjoyed it very much; will def stay again when we are in the Boston area. Go Sox!

                          This hotel was great! We were so close to Fenway which was the main reason we chose this hotel. The staff was super friendly and the room was very nice! We will definitely be staying at the Buckminster in the future.

                          We loved everything!
