Home away from home...

Our favorite home away from home. We booked several rooms for my daughters graduation. Michelle was so helpful (Thank you for taking such good care of us). Location can't be beat; steps from town, minutes from Plum Island. It was great to socialize with our guests in the breakfast room in the evening. I cannot wait to return. We have stayed here 4 or 5 times and for good reason... hospitality, value, location. NL Vermont

Superbly satisfying service!

Neither my wife nor I have ever been disappointed in any of our many visits at Essex Street. The staff go out of their way to treat you right and never make it seems like a chore. Although very rare, any problems are solved with lightning speed. There is no other place that we would ever stay in Newburyport.

Always a great stay

Thanks to a wrong turn my wife and I ended up in Newburyport and needed a place to stay for the night. The Essex Street Inn was not only visually appealing and comfortable but was also within walking distance of everything! We really loved our stay!

Wonderful location and staff!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at the Essex Street Inn. The staff were all incredibly kind and helpful, the rooms were clean and the location could not have been more convenient. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Newburyport. :)
