I don't believe I have ever written a review here but I would have wanted to know when making a reservation that this is an older hotel with good marketing...in reality it feels stale. also the "state of the art pool" you have access to is the YWCA across the street. We packed our swim suits fully anticipating that we... More

Something bad must have happened to this place. 24 hour room service? Well maybe between 11pm and 7am when someone "certified" would be at the desk. I did talk someone into bringing me some coffee, but she seemed surprised that I would ask. Parking was a problem, and the decor was comical mix of "antiques" and art decoish alligator-textured black... More

This is located within a 5-10 minute walk of all activities in downtown Newburyport. The check in/out process was very easy. I stayed in the lowest price room they had (around 190) and it was much larger than I expected. Overall, a great place and would stay there again.

Found this gem via a last minute deal. I would (will!) go back again and pay full price to this independent and classy historic landmark hotel. Impeccable service, decor, and cleanliness in an incredibly cute town. Additionally, breakfast (included) is made to order, and the chef/owner was happy to entertain and create something for me. Absolutely worth it.

Nice, large, very clean room. Parking was a little sketchy, but with feet of snow everywhere, not unexpected. Breakfast made to order was a nice extra, and a very nice way to start the day. Would definitely stay here again.

This boutique hotel was wonderful! So pretty, great walking location to all the shops and restaurants! Our room was very spacious especially for a historic building. The staff were every helpful and gracious. The tea and sweets in the afternoon were yummy and our breakfast was delicious! We had fun relaxing listening to music/ having dessert and drinks in the...

Great room, service,and price.The breakfast was delicious (smoked salmon with dill on a bagel). The rooms had a modern touch to the old New England elegance. It was a nice mix of boutique and comfort. The afternoon coffee,tea, and sweets were a nice touch.

Pros: Food, service, room... Everything Location: Perfect location within easy walking distance of anything in the downtown area. It was our first time at the Garrison Inn, so we did not know what to expect. May I say that we were roundly impressed by every aspect of the service and the facility. The room was spacious and beautifully appointed, the... More

So disappointed in this place. Based on the high overall ratings, I took my boyfriend here for a belated birthday celebration. Upon arrival, we went up to our room to discover that it was only a few degrees above the 10 degree temperatures outside. We could literally see our breath in our room. We immediately turned the heat on full... More

Wonderful "warm" stay on a post-blizzard weekend! We were greeted with a casual but elegant welcome, relaxed in a comfortably sized room with a blend of contemporary furniture and exposed brick walls/fireplace, and ended with a delicious breakfast of Eggs Benedict (complementary!). Located conveniently to all shops and restaurants in Newburyport, very important when it's 15 degrees out! Staff was... More
