Don't waste your money. We stayed here for 6 nights and were appalled with the conditions. Photos on their website are NOT accurate. Dirty, non-working appliances, paint peeling, ceilings crumbling, paper thin walls, close to campus (partying), limited parking, no services unless you call, extra...More

The Farrington Inn misrepresents themselves. The accomodation is dirty and you will be sharing a bathroom and a toilet with as many as 12 other guests. The toilet is in the shower room so if someone is showering and you need to pee you could...More

It could have been a nice experience. But It was run down. Slightly dirty. Smelly. No heating. Bed wit a bad mattress. So all in all not something I would recommend to anyone. It was a good price - but not so good experience.

It might be the cheapest within the area but spend that extra $40 to $50 more a night for somewhere else. This I think is more for groups who would go to Fenway and would rather spend the night within the area than drive back...More

About
Description
The Farrington Inn is a small guest house just west of downtown in the student part of Boston near Harvard, Boston University and Boston College. We are located on the Boston Subway(Metro), 2 miles from Fenway Park More and 4 miles from the downtown area. Our rooms are basic, clean and affordable. We pride ourselves on offering our guests an alternative to the expensive hotels downtown that often reach prices in excess of $500. Less
