I have stayed at the Ipswich Inn twice in 2015. I plan to stay there more. I am giving a five star rating for the above and beyond service Ray and Margaret Morley provided me while I was there. I came in late the night of the Super Bowl and they provided hot chilli and a beer to watch the... More

We enjoyed staying at the Ipswich Inn. The hosts were very accommodating and the room was charming and clean. Full breakfast is included, with many options - you will not go away hungry. Very convenient to downtown Ipswich - a quiet and charming location.

Pros: good location, great breakfast, quiet, comfy bed Cons: -We stayed in the Veranda Suite. Parts of the room were not clean. Stuff (soap? toothpaste?) was splattered all over the bathroom mirror, inside of the mini fridge was dirty from food/drink spills, several empty kleenex boxes were scattered around the room and, our room was never cleaned or serviced the...

I have stayed here twice in the past two years - once on the third floor and once on the second floor. I personally have a problem with the stairs inside, as they are narrow and steep. The entrance to the check-in has one very steep stair and no railing, so it can be difficult.However, the rooms are clean and... More

Ray and Margaret have created an amazing Inn that feels like home. I would strongly recommend to anyone that this is the place to stay when visiting the North Shore. Very convenient to train and highways, as well as Logan Airport. And the breakfast is excellent!

We stayed in the Verandah Suite, which is very nice but right by the car park and that means inevitable noise when people start their cars early. Room was fine - plenty of space but I think a little overpriced at over $200 per night. That included breakfast, but they open breakfast to anyone - not just residents. On our... More

We stayed one night in the East Room. The Inn was clean, private bathroom and shower were terrific and the Inn is close to downtown. You can walk to everything. The only reason why this isn't 5 stars is because the teeny tiny TV is inadequate. I would suggest a larger television or at the very least have it mounted... More

My husband and I have stayed twice at the Ipswich Inn. The first time was several years ago, and that stay was very positive. This review is of our most recent stay in September 2014. I felt I had to write a review because I was shocked at how much it has changed, and how many positive reviews of the... More

We spent Columbus Day weekend at the Inn with friends as we were attending a wedding in the area. I cannot say enough about this B&B. From check in to check out the service was outstanding. Friday evening, while we were lounging in front of fire in the "great room", Ray came through and asked if we'd like some coffee.... More

Had a one night stay in Ipswich and stayed here - don't usually stay at B & Bs, but this was a great experience. The owners were terrific and very helpful, the food was excellent, and the room very comfortable, clean and nice.
