We spent one night at the Inn recently - a surprise trip in honor of my birthday. We had a standard room on the third floor. We asked to see some of the other rooms when we checked out, in order to make an informed decision if we return sometime in the future. As others have noted, the inn is... More

Perfect location within walking distance to a great variety of restaurants and shops; room was spacious and comfortable, with historical decor and a comfortable bed. The bathroom in our whirlpool/queen room was quite large, especially in a historic property. All in all, a very good value for the reasonable price.

We had a beautiful room, with fireplace and Jacuzzi. Everyone was so nice and the breakfast was great. The best part is that you can walk to many many stores and restaurants without taking your car!! easy access to the inn

Lovely little hotel in several heritage buildings, just off the main street and close to restaurants and shops. Received excellent service when we checked in on the evening of the 23rd December. Our room was large enough , very clean and comfortable. Breakfast included was continental , but a good selection and great coffee.

Location is the primary attraction of this inn, which occupies two buildings in downtown Newburyport. There is some parking behind the building. I stayed there to attend a funeral and could easily walk to both the funeral home and the church, over charming brick sidewalks and past many gift shops and small restaurants. It felt safe to be out walking... More

We booked a room at the Essex Street Inn without knowing much about it. The room was modern and spacious, the location is outstanding and the staff was very nice. The apple bread and coffee at breakfast were perfect. It's historic and charming but with modern conveniences. The fridge and microwave are a nice addition.
