Aesthetically the room is beautiful but small and the bathroom was tiny and inconvenient. It has clearly been recently remodeled and the bed was very comfortable. We didn't spend much time in the room so it didn't matter that much. We took the ferry into Boston-which is about two blocks from the hotel. It was very easy and it made... More

We were attending a function in the nearby Yacht club and booked this Inn. Our check in was efficient and prompt and we were extremely happy with the room - lovely decor and spotlessly clean. The Inn is very close to Boston . We did not use the kitchen as we were only staying one night . We had a... More

Just finished up from a 5 day conference in downtown Boston and was looking for a night's stay near a beach. This Inn was perfect! The owners were very pleasant and the view of the harbor was awesome! He gave me directions to the beach and the best place in town for breakfast. The room was cozy, perfect for one... More

We stayed here for four days three nights in August with our two (almost teenage) sons. It was great for us because we had easy access to Boston during the day for sightseeing (we took the T in - easy, clean), and at night the kids could swim and relax while we enjoyed a beautiful view. The inn is charming,... More

I don't know how this place gets good reviews. My only guess is that they stayed in a different building than we did. Here's my story. We checked in and I was informed for the first time that they were going to charge me $20 additional per night per child for each night of our stay. We were booked for... More

crystalcove600, Owner at The Inn at Crystal Cove, responded to this review

This review is factually incorrect. This guest made a reservation through a third party site, as they mentioned, and not directly with the Inn. The paperwork confirmed they had booked for two people, and not four. It is listed on the third party site, and on our web site, that there is a $30 per night charge for an extra... More

We stayed there only for one night but it was a nice switch from the usual brand-name hotels. You can't beat the view and the peaceful surroundings. We walked around the marina around sunset time and it was just gorgeous, especially when the Boston area on the opposite side started to light up. There was a playground with a basketball... More

We got one of the smaller rooms, but it was fine. The sheets smelled very nice, but the bed is a bit small. This could be because we're tall Europeans but we did get a good nights rest. The manager was very helpful with all my questions. You can get a room with a view on the bay, but expect... More

First trip to Boston, we stayed 3 nights in downtown Boston and 1 night at the Inn at Crystal Cove. Had we known how amazing this place really was we'd have stayed here the entire time! The experience of downtown Boston was fun, but it's so close that a person can easily still stay in Winthrop! By far the cleanest... More

We happened upon this inn at the end of a girls trip to cape cod. We were looking for a place to stay near the airport for our last night and we happened upon this gem. I wish we could have spent more time here. It offered one of the most beautiful views I have ever experienced. We had a... More

The Inn at Crystal Cove is a hidden treasure right outside of Boston! The Inn sits right across the harbor, and our room had a stunning view of the harbor. Our room, although small, was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The Inn also has a beautifully decorated lounge area, also with a harbor view. Although breakfast is not served, there... More
