My husband and I booked here because staying in the center of Boston was just too expensive. We wanted to see more of Bosten, so our second night we stayed here. To our surprise this hidden place just outside of Boston was great, quiet, clean, and the updated charm is incredible! The view of the city of Boston across the... More

My spouse and I were finishing up a week long stay on Cape Cod, and needed a place to stay the night before or flight out of Boston Logan Airport in the morning. We only booked the Inn for the low cost and close location to the Airport in advance and didn't know or care what to expect. We checked... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Crystal Cove for 6 nights and were thrilled with this hotel. We wanted to visit Boston but not stay right in the centre so chose this hotel overlooking the harbour at Winthrop. I cannot fault it, the room was lovely we had a kitchen and a view of the harbour. It... More

I stayed here on a family vacation to Boston. The inn is in a very good location in a friendly neighborhood. There is a park across the street with a nice playground that my kids loved where we even made a few friends with the locals. The inn is located within easy walking distance of several restaurants. The view from... More

We had driven up the coast of Maine and were flying out of Boston the last night. We didn't have reservations for that night and were planning on winging it. Once we got on the road, we began looking for accommodations. Since we wouldn't arrive until late evening and would have to leave early to catch our flight, we couldn't... More

I grew up in Winthrop and used to drive by this place all the time. It used to be a little shady but it has changed! The room was nice, very small; I just happened to book the smallest room as I was by myself. It would be a little crowded for two. It looked liked it was renovated recently,... More

We stopped here overnight after arriving in Boston late in the day and were really impressed by this hotel. The views across the harbour are amazing especially when it is dark. The receptionist was very friendly when we checked in and the room was comfortable if not a little on the small side if you were staying longer. The building... More

I stayed at The Inn at Crystal Cove this past week on a business trip. What a charming place and location! It's right on the harbor, so you can walk out the door and have a lovely short or long walk along the waterfront with gorgeous views of the city. The hotel was very clean and although the room was...

It took me three weeks to find an affordable and nice hotel in the Boston area and my searches paid off. This small boutique hotel in Winthrop is a perfect place that is close to everything, but far enough to experience the true culture of the Northeast. We stayed in 171, a recently renovated two bedroom suite which feels much... More
