This is an impressive old building with a lot of history and apparently haunted, although that doesn't bother me. What is frankly bothersome is the rudeness of the staff, especially the lady at the desk who makes you feel about as welcome as Bette Davis in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane. Apart from that, the place has a few... More

This like all the other stays at the Garrison was excellent. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is always so helpful and friendly. It is an easy walk to downtown Newburyport. Where there is plenty of shopping and restaurants. A stroll on the path that leads along the harbor is a must. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet.... More

Beautiful building in lovely town of approximately 25,000 people with grand homes featuring New England colonial architecture. The rooms have working fireplaces {no demand in August} and first class toiletries and bedding. There is no daytime room service but there is room service between 11 PM and 7 AM for coffee or champagne. The rooms ain't cheap but they include... More

Rooms - The Junior Suite had a king bed and a loft with stairs up to 2 twin beds. 4 people fit very comfortable in the room. The beds and linens were comfortable... More

This town is adorable and this hotel is the perfect spot from which to enjoy it. The hotel is very nice and offers a breakfast service. The rooms vary widely in styles and appointments (very funky/oddly modern/art decco furniture in some cases), but the place is great. I highly recommend.

I stayed at the Garrison Inn for 2 nights earlier this month. The location is great - short walk to the harbor front and to restaurants and the center of town. I do realize this is an old historic building and thus rooms (and particularly size of bathrooms) would reflect that - and I thought that was fine. While the... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights, and enjoyed every moment. The location is fabulous, everything is within walking distance. The staff provided superior service. Our room, a park view corner, was spacious, comfortable, and had a lovely view of Brown Square. The little touches in the room such as the glass ware, the robes, the vanity, the comfy... More

We have visited the Garrison many times and it is always a great experience. The staff is welcoming and eager to assist. The rooms have an eclectic style and are very comfortable. The afternoon tea is a nice touch. Restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Free Wifi
