Went to a wedding in Newburyport, what a beautiful town. My niece chose this hotel for extended family and friends and it was perfect. Every contact I had with staff was pleasant, everyone seemed to go above and beyond to be helpful. Our room was spacious and clean with plenty of character. Highly recommend this place.

The staff was very nice, the complimentary breakfast was, too. Being that we stayed here for $100 for one night and booked somewhat last minute, we were pleased. My only gripe was that the TV was tiny and there was no "sleep" setting on it. But, all in all - that is not a big deal. We got what was...

This was my first visit to Newburyport. I came into town for a wedding of my old friends from high school. The Essex Street Inn was clean, spacious, and the people there were very friendly. I also really liked the location. Close to the shops, restaurants, and the water. I would definitely stay here again!

I highly recommend the Essex Street Inn. It's less than a block from great dinning options and shopping and only about two blocks from the waterfront. I was a guest with a large group of people with a variety of different needs and the staff was amazingly patient and helpful with each one. The rooms were not overly extravagant, but...
