I've written a review before, but following my most recent trip, I still felt I should write one, again. I was only scheduled to visit Newburyport for three days, and I was happy as ever to once again book at stay for 5/8-5/10, 2017 at the Garrison! As the title says, its the only place I will stay in MA,...

We have wanted to stay here since attending a reception years ago, and finally did so with a three day stay (5/19 to 5/22/2017). We love history & have enjoyed staying in many quaint historic hotels over the years. There is nothing "quaint" about the Garrison--it has all the ambiance of a historic building, but is very up-to-date & well-maintained....

Had a wonderful stay at the Garrison Inn this Mother's Day.. I suprised my mom with an overnight mini getaway to Newburyport and upon my surprise the inn was running a special for the night any room for $120. What a deal so I booked the Penthouse Suite. What a beautiful hotel and accommodating staff. Martin was a great help...

Came for a weekend in January to visit friends. Lovely hotel. The staff is very warm and welcoming. We had a lovely corner room on the square, our only issue is that the square lights are on all night and light up the room. Would be happy to stay here again.

My husband & I stayed one night at the Garrison Hotel last week. The staff was highly efficient & welcoming - & when the toilet malfunctioned we were immediately whisked to another room. The rooms were lovely & exceeded my cleanliness standards. Breakfast was scrumptious, & we deeply appreciated learning about William Lloyd Garrison & his leadership at an important...

This is now my 2nd stay. The hotel has a very special ambience. A nice mix of old history combined with modern design. The room was big and clean. The hotel I guess is lead by the family which gives it a personal touch. The breakfast was good. Only small negative thing I can say, the shower has to be...

Form the moment we arrived I knew it was going to be an amazing stay. Having never been here before, nor in Newburyport, we weren't sure what t expect.

My daughter and I stayed at the Garrison Inn as part of her graduation trip, and it was absolutely wonderful! The hotel was perfectly located, and we walked all over the town: antique shops downtown, historical churches, boat rides on the Merrimac, coffee shops and great restaurants. You can just *feel* the history of the hotel, and we had a...

On our trips to Newburyport we always now stay at The Garrison Inn, as we consider it our home away from home.

I stayed at Garrison Inn around thanksgiving 2016. Good points include 1)the location, downtown near all the shops and restaurants, 2)there's an elevator, so you don't have to drag bags upstairs like at some B&B's, 3)the room had some character, but was also clean with some updated/modern features like modern tv and bed and wifi, although I wouldn't say the...
