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

We stayed for two nights this past weekend for a quick getaway to Newburyport. We were in the main building on the 3rd floor. It was quiet, clean, and the staff were kind and helpful. I know some previous reviewers stated the standard rooms were old and dingy. We did not feel that way. It's an historic property, not the... More

Friendly staff, comfortable and cozy rooms and a short walk to everything.

From the minute we walked into the Inn, we felt super welcomed and comfortable. The person at the front desk who checked us in was an absolute pleasure and friendly to us.

Basic impression: clean, comfortable, great location -- quiet side street in town. Our room was just the right size for two people. Bathroom: Stall shower with curtain. A bit small (and the lighting wasn't terrific for someone with middle-aged eyes trying to apply makeup) but it was clean, and the shower was good and soaking. Beds: Both the bed and... More
