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

My wife and I stayed this past weekend (late August) and feel that we've found a "new favorite"! Perfect location with plenty of dining options, history and shopping. The Inn is exactly what we like - clean, comfortable and friendly. The staff was very welcoming allowing us to park in the lot a few hours prior to check in time... More

I have to say I'm getting allot of bad advice from trip advisor lately, I mean really the last review said an "oasis out of the ordinary" this place is not an oasis! To start with the toilet seat was so loose I thought I was going to fall off everytime I sat down! The room needed updating, and the... More

The brochure calls the Essex Street Inn "an oasis from the ordinary". Turns out to be exactly correct. First priority, cleanliness. Excellent! Second, breakfast. A continental breakfast with muffins, fruit, cereal, yogurt, etc. All very nicely presented to be enjoyed in their bright and comfy breakfast area. The rooms' ambiance is really nice, giving one a sense of not being... More

Beautiful location in downtown Newburyport. A bit pricey, but good alternative. Rooms need a little sprucing up. The breakfast was quite satisfying with a good selection of yummy things to eat. Very nice staff. I would definitely recommend this very historic and beautiful Inn.

Guests for our son's wedding plus the bride and groom stayed at the Inn. Everyone loved their stay. Rooms were clean, quiet and nice. Friday night the bride and her mom stayed in the bridal suite and loved it. Saturday AM the bridal party used the suite to get their hair and makeup done. The space was perfect. Hot tub... More

The inn is in a great location and that must be the reason for its success. Not good value for the rates charged. Rooms need renovation. They are very tired looking. Our room was a very good size but no where in the room was there a place to put our suitcase - just the floor. I asked the staff... More

This was the first time we have stayed at any Inn. We chose the Essex Street Inn because it was centrally located and love history. The Inn is in 3 homes situated side-by-side. We were on the 2nd floor in the blue/gray house. Our room was very large with a king-size bed and had a jacuzzi tub (though we never... More

We booked a three family reunion at the Inn for July. They could not have been nicer. We had four kids in our group and they accommodated us all. The rooms are spacious, clean and with comfortable beds. The location is absolutely perfect, right around the corner from the main street in Newburyport with restaurants, shops and ice cream.

Clean, affordable, easy access, easy parking. Friendly staff, comfortable and cozy rooms...it is a historic property so you should expect some amount of look and feel to the rooms, but it seemed like a really good stay to me. Right downtown, so everything is very near by. Quiet. Simple muffins/fruit/coffee to start the morning and lots of food options just... More
