“double-decker suite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

In the heart of Newburyport, the Garrison Inn is different in a good way. We stayed in room 405, a double-decker suite (the junior suite). The bottom room had a king bed and TV and the top half (loft) had two twins (and no TV if I recall). A spiral iron staircase took you to the loft. The loft was very private with small windows and a sitting area. It would be great for families traveling with kids, but not good for anyone with mobility issues (the staircase). The suite faced the back of the inn and the small parking lot (which occasionally fills to capacity). The bathroom was a bit cozy compared to the rest of the suite. To sum things up, the room, with the exposed brick and loft, was quiet and quirky. I almost never pay much attention to included breakfasts, but the Garrison Inn stands out. You order your included hot breakfast from a menu with a dozen or more options. I don’t think they have central air. I will go out of my way for central AC in August (much quieter). I got a special $100 off rate from their website.

Anniversary weekend, lucked out finding this place. 4th floor room offered a nice view of a small park out front. HUGE room with King bed and fireplace. Bathroom was average but the shower was very large, plenty of room for 2...if ya know what I mean.. Breakfast was fantastic, offering a selection of over a dozen freshly made options. Dining room was quaint and ecclectic. Another great thing they have are solid shutters in the windows which helped keep the room completely dark in the morning. We didn't have time to use it but the also have a nice common room near the check in desk that looks llike it'd be great for a gathering of 20 or so people...and the restaurtant/bar looked very inviting, so we'll have to take advantage of that next time.

This was our first time staying at the Garrison Inn. We loved the New England feel to the inn. The staff was excellent and the place was immaculate. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go and this was a plus. We can't wait to stay at the Garrison Inn on our next trip.

This was our first time staying at the Garrison Inn and we will stay there again next time I need a weekend in Newburyport. Booked the garden view room, which has a nice view of the park right outside the front of the hotel. Room was very clean and the bed was so comfy. Went to the afternoon tea and the had the most delicious chocolate caramels served with teas and coffee. Walked to everything in no time. David's Tavern attached to the hotel also looked really good but we didn't have time for that one...next time.

We stay at The Garrison Inn every time we visit Newburyport which is about 4 times a year. The Garrison Inn offers a variety of rooms all with exposed brick and early style window shutters. All rooms are well designed to display a inn feeling of early New England. The rooms offer updated bathrooms, fireplaces and comfortable beds.The staff has always been accommodating and professional and a nice breakfast is offered in the morning. The main lobby has a sitting area where you can have tea or coffee and enjoy some quiet time next to the fireplace.
The inn is in a great location and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. There is a separately owned pub downstairs which offers reasonably priced food and service.
This is a true New England Inn with some nice convenient updates yet still keeping its charm. We highly recommend trying the Garrison Inn.

Room Tip: I would suggest getting a corner suite facing Brown Square as it has nice views.

You couldn't ask for a better in town location in Newburyport. We parked the car and didn't have to use it again. We booked a suite with 2 bedrooms and then found out that the bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is down a long flight of stairs. When we asked to change rooms, even though they were fully booked Jen was able to accommodate us and switched us to another room. The tea is wonderful and the breakfast is even better.

Room Tip: If you want the bathroom on the same floor as the bedrooms, make sure to inquire about their locatio...

My husband and I had a very enjoyable night at the Garrison Inn. We have stayed at the Garrison Inn several times over the last few years and don't have a bad thing to say. Each time we stay, we enjoy the cleanliness of the hotel, the hot breakfast made to order as well as the lovely décor in each room. We will surely stay again.
