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

It's bigger than a B&B, smaller than a hotel - and this Goldilocks thinks the Essex Street Inn is just right. Newburyport is a charming New England village along the Merrimack River. Stores, restaurants, riverfront - and the Essex is right in the heart of it. Off street parking behind the buildings. We had a double room on the 3rd... More

Spent a week at this Inn. My room, 212E, was spacious with lots of natural light. The jaccuzi tub in one corner was an odd but relaxing addition. The bathroom, especially the stall shower, was tiny. There was a lovely fireplace, refrigerator and Keurig, but no microwave. Most of Newburyport's shops and restaurants are but a few minutes walk from... More

Stayed at the Essex Street Inn on a trip to see the fall changes. It was central to the places we wanted to visit. The room was outstanding and comfortable. Very clean and housekeeping was good. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. The staff was courteous and helpful. I have stayed here several times over the years so have had... More

This is our return visit - in part because they treated us so well the first time. This time we had a room in the front of the Inn - which gave us a lovely view of the street and the flowered window boxes. I love that the inn is in the heart of the town; it's perfectly located, friendly... More

Perfect location for walkabouts with nice restaurants, beautiful harbor marina walk, and quaint shops lining the streets. We enjoyed first floor very nice room and bath, Keurig coffee in parlor anytime (perfect for us very early risers), nice pastry breakfast, and would certainly be our choice next time around.

I've noticed reviews all over the place for this property, and I think ultimately it comes down to expectations before you arrive. If you are looking for a hidden gem luxury boutique type of place, then no, you will not find it here. On the flip side if you are concerned that it is run-down and dirty, you don't need... More

In a building of beautiful appearance, centrally located in the city, we discover an average hotel that would seriously need to be renovated and not patched as is currently the case. Average bedrooms, bathroom catastrophic, ancient television. Breakfast more than basic. In short not luxury.

Our ideal four-day stay in Newburyport started with our wonderful two-floor suite at Essex street Inn. Our suite was exceptionally clean, very spacious, and very comfortable. Add to that a bit of luxury with a relaxing jacuzzi bath. The full kitchen with Keurig coffee maker and large refridgerator was perfect for our needs. Having two bathrooms with showers was convenient.... More

We were so surprised at how much we enjoyed our stay at this inn. We really just wanted a room for one night while we enjoyed the tone an marina restaurants of Newburyport and ended up in the cutest loft in an Inn that had everything. It is right in the middle of shops and restaurants so you can just... More
