We had a wonderful stay at the Essex Street Inn for a weekend in late October. We stayed in the Bridal Suite, which included a wood burning fireplace, full kitchen, living room, and large jacuzzi tub. Check-in was easy and parking was plentiful behind the buildings so we did not need to worry about street parking. There are bars, coffee...

Thanks for choosing to spend your fall weekend with us! Newburyport is truly, as we like to say, a "seaport for all seasons" and there is always something fun to do, see and eat here! We hope you'll come back soon!

We came up on Saturday and stayed through Monday. My daughter and I were here for the half marathon. Our room was great #309. Highly recommend it. Roomy and comfortable. Gas fireplace and full bath. Staff is always friendly and helpful. This is the only place we stay when we are in Newburyport

First of all I am a senior woman; after I was rudely thrown out of the Garrison Inn (for writing a bad review), I stayed at the Essex Street Inn for one night; and had a positive experience. The room was clean and everything was in order. I was only there for about 12 hours, but in that short time...

We were attending my son's wedding outside Boston. We stayed at the Essex St Inn in Newburyport and it was great.

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.

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.
