Love the location. After passing through some areas that were very questionable we wondered what we had gotten ourselves into, but not to fear. The Inn, met most of my must have list. The pool is right next to the harbor offered beautiful views over Boston Harbor, with a beautiful sunset in the evening and then the lights of Boston... More

I love the Inn at Crystal Cove. The feel of being in a charming seaside town is topped only by the gorgeous view of Boston against the harbor. The prices are great. The people are great. The pool is great. I stayed for 4 nights and loved every minute. I can't wait to come back! Thanks!

We stayed here at the end of our visit to Boston. Next time, I might consider staying at this hotel and traveling in to the city each day; my teenager actually preferred this hotel to our luxury hotel downtown and she wished for more time here and in the charming little town of Winthrop. The staff was extremely friendly and... More

The staff was excellent. The room was terrific. We stayed in room 172, which is the 2nd floor - two bedroom apartment. View of the harbor from our outside balcony was great! Room was very clean, brand new appliances. Full size refrigerator etc. Even had heated floor, not that we needed that in June. Beds were very comfortable. My room... More

We stayed for a night at the Inn, the staff were extremely nice and the Inn was clean. BUT...our room was minute, no room for cases, the bed was far too small for 2 and was jammed against the wall so no way to get out apart from scrambling across it. The bathroom was too small to get dried in.... More

I couldn't fault the Inn in anyway. The staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful. The Inn is spotlessly clean, both the communal areas and my room. Everyone who used the communal kitchen seemed to clear up after themselves, if you put food in the communal fridge, it stayed there. Everyone seemed to be respectful to others using the area... More

The Inn at Crystal Cove is a very charming place to stay. My fiancee and I stayed at the inn as part of our many stops on a road trip from Boston to Newark. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. The room was a good size with a spacious bathroom. Plenty of room to unpack... More

This hotel 4 miles from Logan Airport provided a great start to our American holiday. Four of us stayed 3 nights and it was like a home from home with a large comfortable lounge overlooking the harbour and a spotless and well-equipped kitchen to make drinks and cook if you felt like it. Not that we did as the town... More

This person is clearly not qualified to write a review of the Inn at Crystal Cove for the following reasons: 1. He never even stayed at the Inn. 2. He was no way, shape or manner taken advantage of. 3. The rate he was quoted within a minute of being on hold reflected our normal $10 additional charge for Fridays... More
