Location Location Location...Doesn't get any better. Staff was very attentive and the breakfasts delivered on our porch in a lobster trap. Poached eggs in a mason jar. All in unique fashion. We stayed in a cottage right opposite the beach & hotel and only steps to the water. This annual mystery destination surprise was for my birthday. My daughter in... More

From what I see Shannon is a great manager and extremely valuable to this property. Breakfast in a lobster trap is a novel idea. The rooms are clean and nicely laid out. The view and just stepping out your door to the beach is a wonderful attraction. Parking is very close.

As an Event Planner I am often looking for unique locations for parties, weddings, family gatherings, and other events, and am over the moon to be able to add Blue Inn to my list of go to locations. We held a thirtieth birthday party in the Blue Suite this past weekend and the event couldn’t have been more perfect. The... More

My husband and I loved every second of our stay at Blue. We cannot wait to go back. The price is well worth it. Our King room was spacious, modern, comfortable and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach was great (although surf was a bit rough during our stay). It was the exact kind of getaway we... More

We recently spent one night in The Lark Suite. It was a perfect getaway. Arrived in mid afternoon On a Sunday, people on the beach, but not crowded at all. Blue is located right on the beach! Couldn't get any closer. Our room had a nice balcony overlooking the water, table w/chairs and two chaise lounge chairs. All comfortable with... More

What you would want for a brief getaway, top notch accommodations, beautiful location. Staff was available but not intrusive. "Breakfast in a box" delivered to your door was welcome. Very relaxing few days outside of the crowds of Newburyport.

Blue is a 13 room, small hotel on the beach on Plum Island. Some of the rooms are located in cottages across the street. We were given a second floor oceanside room. PROS: Free parking in a lot a few steps down the block. Our room had a small fridge and microwave. There was a Keurig with a few K-Cups.... More

Blue exceeded our expectations! This is our second time staying at the Inn and the first since the new renovations and ownership. From start to finish the staff was friendly and helpful. Upon arrival each unit receives an iPad to research excursions etc. Nice touch if you don't have a smart phone or your own device. Our room was on... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during July. As mentioned by others, location is key to Blue. From our room it was about 3-4 steps across the deck and straight onto the beach. Wonderful. The room came with a good-sized bed, sofa and armchair and sliding doors that led directly to the deck. The bathroom (in reality simply a shower room)... More
