4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Though fairly expensive ($152 the night with no breakfast), this motel provided us with a deserved two-night rest during our long road trip. The owner was very friendly and communicative, and concerned about his guests' welfare.The motel has a nice and clean swimming pool (which was very welcome) and our overall impression was one of regular and meticulous upkeep.

Two couples on a road trip up the East Coast of US; late evening after visiting Boston and Salem , running out of options, found the Arbor Inn, Very friendly receptionist/owner, rooms on the expensive side but absolutely excellent. Good Mexican restaurant/bar five mins walk and excellent Pancake House just a few mins drive for breakfast.

I booked a room here for one night for a friend's send off/farewell celebration. We were very excited to go until I received news that there was a death in my family; naturally, I had to cancel the reservation. I called three days prior to the check in date and explained the situation to an audibly disgruntled receptionist. Instead of... More

Great pre-season rates for overnight stay. Great location to major attractions in area. Adorable, well appointed, clean rooms. Well lit, spacious parking lot. Across from DQ and close to several famous eateries. However, most uncomfortable mattress I've ever slept on (contemplated going out and sleeping in car), and a very cold 'heated' pool.

We are remodeling our house and were having a new hardwood floor put down and several refinished. I cannot stand the smell of polyurethane at all, it really bothers me. We decided to move into a hotel while the floors were being done. I picked this motel because I have seen it many times driving by and it is always... More

This was our second visit to the Arbor Inn and it was as pleasant as the first. Quiet and immaculate, we all slept soundly after visiting friends in Ipswich for several days. We plan to return next summer and will stay at the Arbor Inn again.

The room was clean and neat Furnishings were a bit dated.. We were a little early for check in but they were very nice and polite at the front desk and let us check in. The motel is centrally located and very quiet. I like the fact that the owners live upstairs if there is a problem. The pool was... More

My husband and I stayed here one night for our anniversary so we could spend some time in the Ipswich area near where we got married. We called up last minute (the very last minute), and showed up five minutes later to a kind office clerk who gave us a king bed room/suite right away! He gave us a discount... More

I stayed here while showing at a horse show in nearby Topsfield. The room (double bed) was comfortable, though the furniture, carpet, etc., were a bit tired and dated. I loved having a coffee maker and fridge in the room to save $$ on breakfasts! Very convenient to have a small shopping center with a Shaw's supermarket just down the... More
