My fiance and I were in town for a wedding and loved our experience. The Essex Street Inn is perfectly located in center of Newburyport. The staff were wonderful, the room was comfortable and charming. Would definitely recommend!

I grew up in Newburyport and always assumed the Essex Street Inn was a historic, charming B & B. I stayed there for a night while visiting friends. We got a room on the first floor front of a side building. The room had a terrible musty oder like a basement with mildew. I asked to be moved to another... More

I would stay here again. My room was very comfortable; the staff was friendly; and the inn is right in the center of Newburyport. Nothing out of the ordinary, but good, well-located, and affordable, with parking, wifi, and breakfast included

This was a last minute reservation for fourth of July. We could not have been any happier. Essex Street Inn is cozy, quaint and charming. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The inn is located on a side street just off the center of town. So perfect for walking everywhere. Sight-seeing, dinner and a little shopping. The inn has three... More

The Essex Inn in Newburyport is a charming 3 building Inn with nice clean rooms. The skylights and view were also fine. It's right in the center of town and the walking is great and not far from the Merrimac River. Coffee was available 24/7 and the breakfast was fine... Reception was friendly and efficient and the price was very... More

Parking behind the inn was no problem and we were very happy to be able to walk to all the shops, waterfront, and restaurants.. I had a moment of fear when we first walked into our room and it was literally 85 degrees inside... More

I have stayed here three times and can't wait to go back. The inn is around the corner from shops, restaurants and historic sites. My rooms were all charming and comfortable. The staff has without exception been friendly and welcoming. My last visit happened to coincide with the final episode of Mad Men so imagine my horror when the cable... More

This Inn was a wonderful find- not very expensive and very comfortable bed- very clean bathroom- access to ice machine & wonderful continental breakfast AND parking for the customers. Short walk to downtown and restaurants- staff very friendly & informative.
