I have been a frequent guest of this establishment. I always feel welcome by the staff on arrival. All of the rooms have their own particular charm, too, which is an added attraction. The location is another sound reason for choosing the Essex. Most of what a visitor would value is right around the corner.

Beyond its outstanding location, tucked away on a quiet side street, this charming inn is clean, well appointed, and the staff was very friendly. Its a beautiful old captains house that's been converted, so the bathroom in my main house upstairs double room was on the smaller size, but perfectly comfortable from linens to beds to pillows. There was a...

This inn couldn't be better situated if you're visiting the lovely town of Newburyport. It's on a quiet street right off the main street, centrally located. It was not expensive, so we got what we paid for. It was completely adequate, nothing fancy. The breakfast was very basic; we supplemented from a nearby bakery. My one complaint is that the...

Thanks for taking time to write a review and pointing out the Inn's fantastic location in downtown Newburyport. We do, indeed, the most affordable accommodations in town -- and have the best location, too! I am sorry that you found the paper products unsatisfactory. We will look into upgrading those products before your next stay with us.

I have been a faithful guest here for nearly 10 years !! Absolutely love this place. The rooms are cozy, clean and the staff is friendly and attentive.

We so appreciate your review of Essex Street Inn. With the frigid temperatures right now, it surely is nice to be in a room with a fireplace (we've got several with gas fireplaces and one suite that has a wood burning fireplace that we stock with wood). If you visit us in the summer you might enjoy a room with...

We had a wonderful stay at the Essex Street Inn for a weekend in late October. We stayed in the Bridal Suite, which included a wood burning fireplace, full kitchen, living room, and large jacuzzi tub. Check-in was easy and parking was plentiful behind the buildings so we did not need to worry about street parking. There are bars, coffee...
