    Excellent place to stay for running down Boston if your looking to save a buck or two. Boston’s transit makes getting around real easy so being close to the green line is perfect. And within walking distance is the movies and a great place to eat called the Brothers tavern. Even the walk at night I felt that my wife and I were perfectly fine safety wise. I would say that the beds aren’t exactly five star buut you make due and for 40 a night why not. All in all great stay.

    The guys at Farmington Inn were welcoming, helpful from moment I walked in. It’s good value for finding a no-frills but secure, clean place to stay for a few days while in Boston sans having to pay a lot. The main advantage for traveling to the location in an outer ring nabe of Boston is pricing- I had a small private room with its own shower, mini kitchen (refrigerator, sink, & a microwave) that was just a little more than the cost of a bed in a 6 bed dorm in hostel in downtown Boston!

    Budget friendly spot. Beds and common areas are clean, but I wouldn't look too closely at the carpet. I had read previous reviews about bedbugs and noise. I experienced neither of those and had a v clean bed and a great sleep. There was also a TV and couch in my room which was great. Staff are nice too but it's not like other hostels that would organise tours etc. More like a place to rent a room and there's a clerk there to facilitate.

    Very Good

    So this place is interesting. It is a collection of 3 (or more??) huge mansion-like wooden mansions with a bunch of rooms rented out on each floor. I was placed on the third floor (2nd floor in California-speak) and found the room to be 'big enough' but the most annoying factor was the crrrrreakkky floors and doors and practically everything. It felt like I was in a haunted mansion. The other guests were super shy (or ghosts??), I don't reccomend this place for halloween but over all it was ok.

    The staff was very nice and a good price for Boston as hotels are expensive. But the private room needs to be repainted and new carpet and new beds as it Is run down

    The Farrington Inn is very well placed in Boston. I stayed there for one night in a weekend and I would say that, given the average AirBnB price in the neighborhood, it was a good deal. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the place has a very pretty façade, but I do believe whomever owns the business should take care of their property more carefully. The hallways smell like cigarettes, cannabis and mold. The walls need painting and some of the guests are not silent late at night.

    There are actually bedbugs here. I have never left a bad review for a place that I stayed at before. I am used to staying in budget hotels/motels. I've stayed in many questionable places and have never felt the need to warn others before, but I feel the need to place an honest review. The biggest issue is that I found bedbugs in the mattress that I was sleeping on. I informed management, and they moved me to another room, but I don't think they are doing anything to fix the bed bug problem.

    The rooms was very dusty: blinds and windows covered in dust. Dust around the edges of the room and the carpet was not cleaned. From the photos, this place is very clearly minimal and has very old furniture. But, it could still be kept clean. I should have paid a little more to get a nice hotel room.

    I had a big room and the bed sheets looked clean. I normally don't mind where I stay as long as it is clean and safe. I'd say the Carrington Inn is neither. The place was so grubby it was unpleasant to touch anything and I suspect the electrical appliances are never tested for safety. One socket in the bathroom was falling off the wall. I foolishly didn't read the reviews before booking.
