Market Street Inn

22 Market St , Newburyport, MA 01950-2526 USA (Show map)


The Inn offers a unique choice: rooms AND vacation apartments. Near restaurants, cafes, galleries, museums and the famous waterfront and yet in a residential setting. The apartments have fully equipped kitchens, large living rooms and separate bedrooms. We offer four beautiful B&B style rooms. All of this is tucked away in one of three historic, colonial-period homes just steps from the downtown. The houses retain many original features, moldings, wainscoting, wide pine floors and fireplaces. *Must call innkeeper for special rates. Restrictions apply. Holidays not included in special rates.

Comfortable place to stay

3.4 on March 29, 2018

We had a small room which we booked at the last minute. It was adequate but without a closet which was a bit of a problem since we had several outfits for a variety of functions during our stay. We really appreciated the full size coffee maker and sufficient amount of coffee. I'd stay there again. There was no onsite dining so ignore the onsite dining rating.

Clean and comfy

I stayed in room 22-1. It was clean and comfortable. Homey but with the amenities of a hotel room (mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, cable TV). The bathroom was tiny, but I appreciated the private access in an old building like this. Check-in was super easy, if not a bit confusing, with the keys waiting for me at the door. There is no dining associated with the Inn, but groceries were a quick 5 min drive away. I was traveling for business in the off season and the nightly rate was fantastic. So much better than a sterile hotel chain! Enjoyed my stay.

Great place to stay

This very old inn has slanting floors and a layout one might expect from a converted old house but it was funky fine. It s in a perfect location in downtown Newburyport - a 5 minute walk to the downtown shops and the river but just far enough to not hear the noise of downtown events. The place was clean and comfortable with an excellent shower water pressure. I would stay there gain in a heartbeat. We did not dine here.

Quirky but Wonderful!

Two of my daughters and I took a road trip out East and spent two nights at Market St Inn. I think they were the best two nights of the trip! The Inn has a very homey feeling and after night after night in hotels, it was nice to have the change. The town is close enough to walk to and the people in the fun little shops were delightful. The rooms were very clean and met all our needs. The floors are a bit slanted but it just added to the fun quirkiness of the place. There is a nice balcony were we had breakfast (planned to have dinner there one night as well but it started to rain so we had a picnic on the floor!) We loved the privacy of having our own entrance and not having to worry about keeping things picked up for house keeping. I can't wait to go back and we are even talking about just spending a week there next summer skipping the rest of the road trip!

Nice place old, slanted floors but clean. No one there to check us, in doors open went to room and keys were there. Never checked out no on around. But would go back because of location and rooms were clean.

Third floor is a converted attic with a very rustic feel.. Although we had a great weekend getaway, the ceilings were very low, the bathroom cramped and there was a steep uneven climb to the door.

Quaint Apartment

The Market Street Inn is a great place to spend a few days to get away from it all. It's a very quick walk to downtown with all its shops and restaraunts. The rooms are quite large and well maintained. We liked it a lot!

The upstairs room 26-2 was very comfortable with plenty of room. The Inn was in a great location to walk to restaurants, the riverfront, and shopping. I must have missed the page on how to get my key and check-out time. There was no information in the apt. about the Inn or the town. After a few walks we finally found the information booth and the lady there was very knowledgeable. Also Mary who services the Inn was very helpful about extra towels and linens which she brought to us. I would stay there again if am in the area. The Inn has no dining but the apt. had a kitchen.

About the innkeepers

We started this inn in 1986. It began with just two rooms and eventually reached 35 rooms in five buildings. As we have moved along in age, we've lessened the load and now have two buildings with 3 rooms, one suite and three vacation apartments. I have since retired from Boston University and we now spend winters in Key West. The Inn stays open year around and we are fortunate to have great management services.
