The Inn itself is clean and cozy with modern bathroom. Bed is super comfortable. Bedside coffee maker with 2 bottles of water and a clock with speaker for your ipod that... 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.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The staff was VERY helpful when we had an issue with our TV and they helped get it figured out immediately. And you couldn't ask for a better location! The inn is within walking distance of all kinds of great restaurants and shopping destinations. Even the beds were super comfy! Great experience... More

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

This hotel is in the perfect location. My friends and I spent New Years at a bar down the street and all booked this hotel so we didn't have to trek home.

This hotel is located in the center of Newburyport and was very convenient. However, it lacked in cleanliness. We had a room with a jacuzzi tub and when the jets were turned on black specks started to cover the tub.

Thank you to this guest for staying with us this past January. It has been determined that our ongoing issues with black specks from this particular Jacuzzi was caused by detrition of a black rubber stopper becoming disintegrated over time by the cleaning solutions we were using to clean and sanitize our Jacuzzi tubs after each use.
