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

I am originally from Newburyport and I love to have a clean, comfortable place to stay when I come to visit my family. The Essex Street Inn is in a fabulous location and the staff were very friendly and happy to help with anything we needed during our stay. The bed was perfect and the room was beautiful. The view...

I stayed here for New Years eve and found the location wonderful but all the shops closed early. Our room was big for an inn room and was clean and comfortable. The room had a keurig, an assortment of coffee and tea, microwave, mini fridge, and sink. Right down the street is a great restaurant we went to for breakfast... More

Thank you for your New Year's stay with us and for taking the time to complete this survey. You're correct; the shops do close early this time of year. However, in the summer, most shops are open past 6pm. We are pleased that you enjoyed your room and stay so much and look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely, Olivia... 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. The hotel is very old and boutique-y, it has 3 buildings. I stayed in a suite which was 2 floors, fireplace, hot tub, deck, and 2 bathrooms. It... More

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. We alerted the front desk and their only response was, "let me know if it continues to happen." It could... More

The hotel is very convenient, lying just off the Main Street of Newburyport, so everything is just a short walk away. The rooms are traditional, but very comfortable and the hotel buildings are very picturesque (like much of Newburyport). The staff were friendly and very helpful to us. The only slight disappointment was breakfast, but there are very good family-run... More

This good sized and charming inn impresses by its nicely appointed rooms - spacious especially considering their central location in a beautiful, upscale seaside community. Spread over three buildings, the Essex Inn is affordable and comfortable. The reception desk is small but adequate, the breakfast room is reasonably sized and serves a continental breakfast daily. On-site parking, especially in such... More

As always Kathy and her staff were excellent responded to all our needs and helped with the new rewards program. Any time we stay in Newburyport its The Essex Street Inn. Everyone did a great job especially considering how busy it was for Yankee Homecoming.

I stayed at this lovely quaint hotel in August during Yankee Homecoming. It was a very busy time for the town and the hotel and the weather wasn't great. But, I had a terrific air conditioned room with a comfortable bed. There's only one thing that was difficult - the wifi didn't work well on the 3rd floor. The interruption... More
