I have stayed at the Essex Street Inn six times...that tells you something, right? The people are wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are nice and the location is fantastic.

Newburyport is a slice of Dickens' England...and the Essex Street Inn fits in perfectly... Stay there...and you'll be very happy...and you will return.

Just what the doctor ordered! No hassles, easy everything - found it quickly, parked in their lot, and the inn was filled charm and character! A wonderful weekend in an historic New England sea town! Parked the car at check-in and didn't move it until check-out. For the location and price, it was a great value! Yes, the room was basic, but we were told that at reservation, so we were not surprised.

Room Tip: We had one of the smallest rooms (209), but was told in advance so it was not a surprise or disappoi...

The place has a definite charm and it located in a prefect place that is a walking distance to anywhere in town. Reception was very professional and things were very smooth.
The room (202) was very vary basic and I would recommend to spend some more and have a better room (shower is very small, no desk etc.). Breakfast was basic but nice and the coffee machine was great! I suggest adding an espresso machine as well.
I would stay there again but in a better room next time…..

The historic appeal and setting were what drew us to this inn. It is located in the middle of town and allowed us to walk to shops and restaurants. The room was clean and a good size with locking outside doors to the building that gave a feeling of safety. The building was built in the 1700's and it was fun to stay in such an old building that was updated beautifully. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean as was the bathroom. The only con to this place was the breakfast, it was truly continental which seems kind of scant for a bed and breakfast. Overall, we would still recommend this inn !

I just have to say we stayed at the floating cottage (an extension of the Essex St Inn) on Friday night and it was amazing!! We brought our own food to cook in the full kitchen, had some friends over and laughed all night. It was quiet, super clean, so different and so much fun! You wake up to the water right out your window, can see boats go by, watch the sunset...where else can you get this? It is your own private cabin on the water! I would HIGHLY suggest anyone to try this! Life is good!!

Thanks John!
