My husband and I stayed here one night for our anniversary so we could spend some time in the Ipswich area near where we got married. We called up last minute (the very last minute), and showed up five minutes later to a kind office clerk who gave us a king bed room/suite right away! He gave us a discount... More

I stayed here while showing at a horse show in nearby Topsfield. The room (double bed) was comfortable, though the furniture, carpet, etc., were a bit tired and dated. I loved having a coffee maker and fridge in the room to save $$ on breakfasts! Very convenient to have a small shopping center with a Shaw's supermarket just down the... More

Ipswich is near some pretty high demand attractions but the price of this hotel was really quite reasonable. We paid a standard room rate and got a suite basically. King bed, jacuzzi tub, fireplace, etc. The owner was one of the friendliest people I have ever met. He chatted to us about our trip and even showed us to our... More

Spent the last night of our week long 20th anniversary trip. Had the king room with a fire place & jetted 2 person tub. Room was nice, bed comfortable, fire place heats the room up quickly. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to try the tub since I got sick from a bad clam at lunch earlier in the day.... More

The owners made us feel like family. The rooms were great,spacious and clean. Spent two afternoons in the pool with friends / very relaxing. Ate delicious seafood and chineese in close by restaurants. We are hoping to be able to arrange a return trip next year

I was in Ipswich to take my mom to her 62nd class reunion. With lots of choices in the nearby vicinity I decided convenience outweighed chain hotel I normally stay with. I arrived early but NO ONE was around. Small office was open so we followed instructions to dial for assistance no answer, finally a woman drove up and wanted... More

This was our second year staying at the Arbor Inn. It is close to Newburyport and the beaches yet set in a more quiet area. The rooms are spacious and clean and the innkeepers are very accommodating and friendly. We are looking forward to another stay in the future.

The owners made us feel like family. Room was spacious, clean, and comfortably cool in the 95+ degree heat. The pool was the perfect temperature and lounge chairs are convenient. Lots of options for restaurants within a short drive.

I stayed for 4 nights last month, May 2013, at this hotel and could not have been more pleased. I found my room to be the cleanest I have ever encountered, anywhere. Now mind you, I do not say that lightly, as I live in Arizona, and travel for work....A LOT. The gentleman running this establishment was very pleasant and... More

My husband and I , along with my sister and her husband, attended a wedding in Ipswich and made reservations to stay one night at Arbor Inn. Our stay was quite a disappointment. The price for our room was $139 for a king-size bed and my sister had a room with two. queen size beds for $169. My room was... More
