Been staying at Essex Street Inn for longer than I can remember. Whether it's a simple overnight stay for a show or a luxury vacation for my wife and myself, we have always been treated with such respect and top-flight service. The staff always make us feel so welcome and immediately corrects any problems to ensure our stay is perfect. This is only place we would stay in Newburyport and invite any and all travellers to give it a try - you'll be glad you did!

Innkeeper Response
I so agree! Newburyport and Essex Street Inn are great locations to hold weddings, family reunions, and corporate retreats. Park once at the Inn and then walk to everything the city has to offer!

Perfect Historic Inn Downtown

4.8 on December 20, 2016

I have been a faithful guest here for over 10 years. My good friend has a home in Plum Island just 7 minutes from downtown Newburyport which I have an open invite to stay but many times I prefer staying at the Essex Street Inn merely due to the convenience of not driving when you are out and about in town. It's super cozy, clean, and a perfect location right in town. Highly recommend !

Love the Essex!
