A hidden gem very close to Boston but in the quiet and relaxing little town of Winthrop As there was confusion over our booking which meant the type of room we had booked was not actually available we were upgraded to a beautiful brand new condo but without soundproofing, the noise from the condo above ours meant disturbed sleep.

Let me start by saying this is a really nice property, or at least appears to be. There are one and two bedroom apartments with kitchens that have a balcony and spacious sitting area...Which leads to the conclusion this is a better place for an EXTENDED STAY, not one or two nights...I do not recommend staying at this establishment for...

Thank you for the many nice comments you made about the Inn. I appreciate the fact that you noted the quality of the fixtures and marble tile. However, as you yourself noted there are larger spacious rooms. These rooms are available for one night stays and you yourself could have booked one of these rooms by paying a higher rate.... More

Boston was a transit stop for us and after searching the internet from home in Australia we selected this Inn because it had good reviews and the view looked amazing on their website. Upon arrival the staff were excellent with our check in but we were disappointed to find no lift to our 3rd floor room and the stairs were... More

I came here hesitantly, after searching relentlessly for a hotel that wouldn't eat my paycheck for a getaway when my partner came to visit all the way from Texas. I wanted to give him a true "New England" experience, and to see as much as possible of Boston, but the prices of staying in the city for 2 people are... More

Finding the Inn at the end of a long day's travel was such a treat. We got a warm welcome and a quick check-in. At first we were dubious about being on the third floor without an elevator, but after the first suitcase lug, we never gave it another thought. The bus stops right out front and it's an easy...

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
