Hotel is walking distance to the beachPosted Nov 19, 2013
Pros: People, location.
Cons: Room condition is as expected of a renovated old house. Acceptable comfort and quality. Very clean. But no breakfast is a bit inconvenient.
Location: Walk by the beach; try the neighborhood; idle time away watching the yachts and Boston across the water.
Hotel is walking distance to the beach at the back. On the other side, it looks across the bay to Boston downtown. Quiet neighborhood. Good eateries nearby. Most important... They have an excellent receptionist named Rhonda. Very heart-warming to see her prepare tea for me and my guest that cold night. Walk me to my room too. Chatted with me like an old friend.

Nice hotel across street from marinaPosted Oct 22, 2013
Pros: Clean and functional.
Cons: No elevators, stairs to 2nd and 3rd floors.
Location: Across the street from a marina; swimming beach within walking distance. Close to, but not directly under Logan flight path.
The staff had our room waiting for us, 2 beds as we requested; hotel was fully occupied because of regatta. The beds were comfortable. There was little sound penetration from either above or next door. If the slider was open you could hear aircraft. The room was clean and well stocked (towels and soaps). There are sufficient and well positioned electrical outlets and lights.There was no in-room refrigerator or coffee pot but each building has a full kitchen and a small dining area; we just put drinks in the fridge and ate out. We had a pleasant view of the marina from our 2nd floor balcony.

First stop on our big USA tourPosted Oct 13, 2013
Pros: In a quiet location, but not too far from Boston.
Location: There are not many restaurants in Winthrop, but enough to get by for a couple of days. Good for transportation to Boston.
We stayed at the Inn at Crystal Cove at the end of July. It was our first stop of many on our big USA tour. We wanted to stay just outside of Boston on purpose and we were made so welcome by Ronda who was willing to advise and assist in any way she could. We had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the harbour. The room and hotel in general was very clean and we used the communal kitchen a couple of times just for coffee. It is pretty close to Logan Airport as others have described and it was the perfect place for us to stay after a long day travelling and away from busy Boston. We had a visit to the pool but did spend most of our full day there in Boston. It is relatively easy to travel to Boston with or without a car, we travelled on a bus (which stopped right outside) to Wood Island Station and used the metro to travel to central Boston, all in under an hour. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again if visiting Boston. Thanks Ronda.

Excellent quiet hotel, great value.Posted Oct 8, 2013
We were extremely happy with our stay. We couldn't get over the beautiful view right from our balcony. Our balcony looked over the cove with view of downtown Boston, with nice table & chair setup. Most rooms had a balcony, and for the ones that didn't there was some common/shared ones with nice table & chair setup. The location worked out very well. Public transit was reasonable to downtown Boston (about half hour), and so was the drive (tough to park the car downtown however). The rooms and facility was clean and tidy, well maintained. The common areas and facilities were very quiet and available since in quiet neighborhood and many people were visiting downtown boston. Extremely happy and pleasantly surprised with the Inn and crystal cove.

Very small for the high price.Posted Sep 28, 2013
Pros: Very clean and beautiful view from decks, if you get a deck.
Location: Close to the airport and right on the cove, close to North End Boston for sightseeing and good food.
Was a little disappointed in the very small size of the room and very, very small bathroom. Without the deck it would have been horrible. Beautiful views of the cove and nice area. The Inn was very clean and well maintained.

Not what I expectedPosted Aug 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
I went out of my way to stay at this inn because of the description and images provided. I was disappointed to find a cramped tiny inn stuffed between other buildings and 2 roads. There was remodeling going on so I had to enter thru the kitchen. My room was very tiny - half the size of a hotel room. The door only had a single lock on the knob. The bed was horribly uncomfortable. There was no sound barrier in the walls so i could hear every voice or noise made all night. Wish I had stayed somewhere else.

Unusual but pleasant hotel, convenient for airportPosted Aug 11, 2013
Pros: The balcony views and delightful staff
Cons: Bit of an effort carrying stuff from kitchen to the room - and in room fridge and kettle would have helped
Location: Close to the airport; Winthrop is a suburb of Boston with long sandyish beaches and a harbour - not a lot going on besides
This unusual hotelsuited us well for a two night break at the end of a US road tour. It is easy to access, close to the airport and inexpensive compared to Boston centre or airport hotels. The setting is great with lovely harbour views and all rooms en suite with balconies. There is also a very clean but not heated pool that was fine in August. The unusual bit is that there are no restaurant facilities or bar etc on site, only a spacious and very well equipped shared kitchen which gave the whole place the feeling of a rather upmarket youth hostel. That said, the staff could not be more helpful with information about supermarkets and restaurants and the kitchen was not much used accept by us and the hotel staff! Another strange thing is that Winthrop is obviously quite an affluent suburb but shopping and restaurant facilities are quite limited (fine for a couple of days!). Perhaps everyone goes to Boston? There is a ferry service but we did not use it. Went to the town beach instead.
