Perfect place for any special event

Perfect Historic Inn Downtown

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!

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
