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

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
