Stayed here while attending a wedding. Great location in Newburyport. The rooms are very well maintained and clean. Beds are very comfortable. Even the pull-out couch in the Queen Suite is great for sleeping. Parking in this area can be challenging. Front desk was very helpful in explaining the Newburyport parking rules.

We have been staying at Essex Street Inn since 1988. We have stayed in many different types of rooms and all have been comfortable and immaculately clean. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. The breakfast has grown in size and variety over the years, and is very good. The Inn is 1/2 block from downtown shops and restaurants, so... More

I needed two beds but couldn't be too choosy when booking last minute. My friend and I decided to go for the queen bed and stay at the Essex Street Inn and be right in the heart of town. When we got there, we were pleasantly surprised that the room was quite large, decorated very nicely and super clean. I... More

Excellent across the board. Great staff. Very clean inn. Tasty breakfast. 11:00 check out eliminates rushing to check out. Without a doubt will come back. Plenty of parking around back and on the street. Central to everything. Short walk to sites and numerous places to eat.

We stayed two nights at the Essex Street Inn. We were in town for a wedding. If I could give half a star I would rate it 3.5. I would have no problem staying here again.

This lovely inn is well-located in the historic downtown of Newburyport and offers that small town rarity: off-street parking. The rooms are spacious and it’s excellent location means you can leave your car and stroll the downtown with ease. My room (103) was a very large with a super comfortable king-size bed, lovely pillows and bedding. The large bathroom had... More

A friend booked several rooms for her wedding. We were looking forward to a wonderful time with friends we haven't seen in years. What was suppose to be a great few days turned into a nightmare.
