I've stayed at the Winthrop Arms only twice in the past 10 years, but I found both the food and accommodations to be excellent both times. The rooms are small but clean and nicely appointed. Mine had a window air conditioner that was reasonably quiet and did an effective job in sultry weather. Be sure to get a parking pass from the hotel, as overnight parking is limited to residents and those with passes. There is no night clerk on duty, so you have to make advance arrangements if you check in late; they can arrange for you to get your key from the lock box located outside the main entrance. The management is friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is open mainly in the evening and has a well-deserved reputation for high quality at reasonable prices. I had a fish dinner on my last visit; the portions were large and the tastes were delicious. Boston is about 1/2 hour away via a local bus that connects with the T, which is Boston's rapid transit system. There are a few convenience stores and restaurants within 4 blocks of the hotel. The beach is located just a block away, though you can only access it by a stairway about 25 feet high. Overall, this is a very good place to stay but fills up quickly, so reserve as soon as you know your travel dates.

Room Tip: I didn't notice an elevator. All rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building, so those...

This was our third stay at the Winthrop Arms Hotel and we will stay there whenever we visit Boston in the future. It is clean, quaint and surrounded by a nice neighborhood within a stones throw to the ocean. You cannot find a better value in the Boston area, If you are planning a trip, book early because they do fill up. And don't forget the chicken pot pie!

On my summer visit to "The Hub" I needed a room that wouldn't break the bank and offer easy access to the airport and downtown. A friend suggested the Arms. The cab from Logan Airport took under ten minutes... Especially important because I arrived at 1am and would have to fly out in a few days at 7am. Its under 10 minutes to Boston as well. The hotel has a very nice restaurant with liquor service in a dry town. The room was smallish but adequate for two. Furniture and fixtures were first quality. It overlooks the ocean and I got to enjoy a morning stroll down the beach. There's only about 25 rooms in the place. Book it early and enjoy an updated version of old New England at a price that's more than fair.

This was our first stay at the Winthrop Arms and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. We were greeted warmly by the staff and check-in took less than two minutes. Our room was spacious and clean. I would love to be able to duplicate the bathroom in my own home. The tile is beautiful, the tub huge, and the large vanity area was a perfect fit. The hotel restaurant has quite a good reputation in the neighborhood and we enjoyed dinner there several nights. I recommend the Chicken Pot Pie -- the buttery crust and creamy sauce were truly amazing. A quick walk across the street and down some stairs took us to the ocean. The surrounding area has beautiful old homes and a small park nearby. Of course there is a Dunkin Donuts within walking distance (I think this is mandatory in all of Boston) and several small neighborhood restaurants. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the Boston area.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 208 -- comfortable seating area and wonderful beds!

Oh, my! I thought I'd stepped into the Addams family mansion! The hotel is a piece of history. The lobby area seems clean enough, just old. I arrived about supper time and the desk clerk seemed to be doing double duty, but took the time to explain the parking situation to me. The lot is across the street, behind a house. Up the narrow, fairly dimmly-lit stairs to the second floor. The bedroom and bath were totally lovely! Clean and updates with a super comfy bed! In the morning no desk person, just a note on the desk saying please leave the keys and have a great day!

Clean great restaurant, friendly staff, beautiful rooms/views. I love it here. I've stayed here several times over the years and go to the restaurant whenever I'm in the neighborhood. You can't do any better than Winthrop Arms.
