The "Essex Street Inn" is a wonderfully quaint B&B (although breakfast is only continental, but adequate). Within walking distance there are wonderful shops, restaurants, pubs, and the beautiful Merrimack River. The employees of the Inn are wonderful, personable, and accommodating. A wonderful experience highly recommended.

Excellent location, just round the corner from shops and eateries, yet on a residential street, surrounded by beautiful Federal and Greek Revival style houses. The Inn is clean and nicely spare in furnishings (not chintzy and cutesy). Our room (Queen deluxe) was well laid out, with kitchen area (microwave, fridge and Keurig coffee machine) and bathroom tucked behind a wall... More

Went to a wedding in Newburyport, what a beautiful town. My niece chose this hotel for extended family and friends and it was perfect. Every contact I had with staff was pleasant, everyone seemed to go above and beyond to be helpful. Our room was spacious and clean with plenty of character. Highly recommend this place.

The staff was very nice, the complimentary breakfast was, too. Being that we stayed here for $100 for one night and booked somewhat last minute, we were pleased. My only gripe was that the TV was tiny and there was no "sleep" setting on it. But, all in all - that is not a big deal. We got what was... More

This was my first visit to Newburyport. I came into town for a wedding of my old friends from high school. The Essex Street Inn was clean, spacious, and the people there were very friendly. I also really liked the location. Close to the shops, restaurants, and the water. I would definitely stay here again!

I highly recommend the Essex Street Inn. It's less than a block from great dinning options and shopping and only about two blocks from the waterfront. I was a guest with a large group of people with a variety of different needs and the staff was amazingly patient and helpful with each one. The rooms were not overly extravagant, but... More
